You don’t have to have read the famously tricky Herman Melvillle novel of the same title to enjoy Microgaming’s Moby Dick slot, which is frankly as about a fun as slot can get with plenty of free spins and freezing Wilds to boost your luck!
This romp of a game is set at sea where you, the whale hunter of old, Ahab, are out to capture the famed behemoth of the whaling world, Moby Dick.
This slot is a battle between the beast and Ahab- but who will come out on top? Or will it be a case of getting trapped in Davey Jones’ Locker? I had to hop on the reels to find out if I had what it takes to best a beast!
Look and feel
Moby Dick has big screen good looks – this feels like an animated movie with a comic edge to the styling and loads of colour and detail to make for very smart game looks wise.
The reels are set on the undulating ocean’s waves and with a treasure chest look to the reels themselves. To the left of the frame is the tip of Ahab’s boat with him standing looking out for Moby Dick.
Moby Dick is a five reel, 3 row and 25 pay-lines ocean-going epic of a slot.
The high value icons are the big mammal himself, Moby, his nemesis Ahab, an anchor and a wooden mug of grog! The Ace through 10 of the card deck make up the lower value icons of play in marine styling.
Moby Dick’s Wild is the navigation wheel of the boat and this substitutes for all icons expect the game’s Free Spins Scatter which is the scary open mouth of the dreaded Whale with the words “Free Spins” on it! The Wild is a valuable asset if you can land 5 on the payline to gain a bonkers x 200 your stake!
Win Freezing fun!
If you can land a winning combo then this slot comes over all generous and freezes or rather nails your winning icons in place and better still, giving you a freebie spin. During this mode, if additional icons arrive on the reels to add to your win then these are also nailed down, until your winning icons stop landing.
Free spinning all the way to the bank!
Lure four or more Scatters onto the reels and you trigger Moby Dick’s bonus game that is all about the ever welcome free spins. 4, 5, 6 or 7 and more Scatters gift you a pretty generous 10, 12, 15 or a mega 20 free spins. And this gets even better, during the spins up to a maximum of three Wilds are added to the reels- now this really can make for some lucrative spinning action.
And don’t forget that that handy Freezing Wins feature works in this mode which makes getting Scatters to re-trigger the feature possible! You’re going to have a “whale” of a time!
Moby Dick can be a lucrative slot with plenty to get you involved in trying to capture that big ol’ fish and make a big haul of your own at the same time. This game looks the business with big budget graphics and game play to match. I will be back to try my hand netting the big bucks once again.
