How to play MagellanClick here for a print friendly version
Welcome to the Age of Exploration. Embark with us on the Magellan, the wooden Colonial ship on its transatlantic journey to discover the Americas.
Despite the rough journey across the Atlantic, the Captain still manages to have an impeccable, elegant colonial suit, an authoritarian looking hat and a perfectly groomed beard. The pretty native girl on the island, with the flower in her hair seems to be intrigued by him, his ship, compass and maps.
Sea’s everywhere in Magellan, from the background of the game, to the spinning symbols themselves.
Are you ready to jump in?
Chimes, trumpets, flutes and fireworks will celebrate all your wins as you sail on any of the 50 paying lines of Magellan.
Payouts start from 9, 10, J, Q, K, A even though they are the low win symbols.
As soon as you start hitting the compass and the map, the winnings start getting more interesting. Then just wait for the second highest paying symbols – the Captain will turn towards the sun and open his rolled up map when you hit his winning combination and the beautiful island girl poses for you and shyly fixes the red flower in her hair.
What you really want to hit though is the massive wooden sailing ship, as it’s the highest paying symbol in Magellan.
You want to hit the winning combinations left to right, but there’s good news, the scatter symbol works both ways.
Globe Scatter & Free Spins:
The Globe is your scatter and if it drops 3 times onto your 2nd, 3rd and 4th reel you’ll sail onto a different set of reels to enjoy your 7 free spins – and that’s not all, you can land an extra round while you’re spinning for free!
The Ship will act as your Wild on all reels and stacks up! It substitutes every single symbol, for the Globe Scatter.
Double Up Feature:
Magellan, spices up the scene even more with the Double up feature which will appear every time you win, giving you a 50:50 chance of doubling up your winnings.
Careful though – if you use the Auto play feature, the Double up feature is overridden and the game automatically takes the guaranteed prize! So keep an eye out, you might want to stop the spinning when you get a win and be in for the possibility of making your payout more colonial!
Jackpot Cards is a 4-level mystery jackpot, each level represented by a card suit.
The Clubs are the 1st level, Diamonds the 2nd, Hearts the 3rd and Spades the 4th and the highest of them all.
The Jackpot Cards Mystery bonus is triggered randomly as a single game’s finished and the winnings are collected. During the bonus round, any of the jackpot levels can be won.
You get to take your pick of fields made up of 12 cards face-down until you reveal 3 matching card suit symbols. The Mystery level corresponding to the revealed suit is then awarded to you, to the value of the amount accumulated at the moment of revealing the last matching symbol, shown on the right side of each card suit.
At any point when you enter the Jackpot Cards Mystery Bonus round, you have a reasonable chance of winning the highest level of the jackpot with any of the qualifying bets*.
