Developed by Gold Coin Studios, Smooth Sailing is actually their second instalment in what could very well turn out to be a unique and long series of travel-themed slot games down the line. Leaving the railway tracks behind, Smooth Sailing has you onboard a boat, looking to land wilds, scatters, and multipliers in no time.
Let’s get started with the review by checking out the basics of Smooth Sailing’s slot mechanics first.
The Low and High symbols are called Regulars and Premiums in Smooth Sailing. Check what to expect from them below:
Lows/Regulars - In the Base Game, matching 9, 10, J, Q, K & A symbols will lead to getting 5x – 7.5x multipliers for your total stake.
Highs/Premiums - Getting matches with premium symbols like the bell, the ship’s wheel, the anchor, or the captain’s hat in the base rounds will add a 25x – 50x multiplier to your total stake.
Your beautiful, redhead captain is also the wild symbol here. Wilds serve two functions in the base game:
Boat symbols are the scatters in Smooth Sailing, and you need to land three of them to get 10 Free Spins which activates the Connectify Pays Bonus Rounds. During these rounds, the following rules come into play:
On activating the Gold Coin Bet system, another scatter symbol will come into play. This would be the Gold Ticket Symbol which acts in the same way as the regular boat scatter, requiring the player to land three for an activation. However, due to the presence of two active scatters instead of one, the player’s chances of getting into the bonus rounds with free spins, as well as that of retriggering free spins are doubled. You will need to pay an extra 0.5x per bet to activate it though.
Whether you like the vintage theme and music, or you are just in it for the potential to win 6,000 times your total stake, Smooth Sailing comes highly recommended.
