The Ship is the Wild symbol, it doesn't pay anything for itself, it doesn't double any wins with it, but substitute for other symbols, except for the Scatter symbols. Whenever it lands anywhere on reel 3, it becomes a Stacked Wild Reel, both in the base game and during the free spins. Once stacked, the ship may randomly fire cannon shots to the left and right of it, converting some symbols into Wilds. It is possible to get all 15 Wilds on the reels. That is good. The Compass is the Scatter symbol, appearing only on reels 1, 3 and 5, and getting all three of them pays 5x the total bet, plus 15 free spins without any multiplier, but all wins are paid both left-to-right and right-to-left. The Free Spins game can be retriggered, but I didn't any in my plays on the game, not even once.
The logo 'Loose Cannon' pays 8.3x the total bet for 5 of them, the Pirate pays 6.6x, the Lady pays 5.8x, the Monkey pays 5x, and all the lower symbols pay from 3x to 2x, all per total bet for 5 of each kind. Overall, a low paytable that would make getting nice big wins rather difficult to get.
In my few plays on this game, the Wild Ship landed on reel 3 many times, but doesn't always fire the cannon shots. When it does fire them, usually only one symbol would be hit and gets converted into a Wild. The hits were mostly on reels 4 or 5, which helped very little in getting new wins. Only in the Free Spins game would more of the cannon shots make a hit to create new Wilds. However, the paytable indicates that all symbols in the game can be converted into Wilds, for all-of-a-kind grand win. Hmm, if you're lucky enough. I couldn't even get a handful of them, hahaha. Nonetheless, Loose Cannon did give me some nice decent wins in the Free Spins games, from about 20x up to 70x my bet amount, so that's not so bad at all.
