Moby Dick slot – Are you going to be having a Whale of a time playing this new slot from Rabcat?
32Red Casino has recently added the latest wave of online slot releases from Microgaming to their casino which includes the unusual Monster Wheels Slot, Halloween and the latest release from Rabcat titled Moby Dick.
Based on the famous novel by Herman Melville, Moby Dick has been recreated into an online slot and features the tale of a Whale hunter on an obsessive quest seeking revenge on a White Whale, brought to life in an amazingly designed cartoon styled slot machine.
The Moby Dick slot is a regular 5×3 reel slot that comes with 25 fixed paylines, along with this there are a couple of interesting mechanics at play that includes a “Win Freezing Feature” which grants you bonus re-spins whenever a winning pay is formed on the reels along with a regular free spins mode that is triggered by 4 or more of the scatter symbols.
The main bonus symbols can also be frozen in place if 3 or more land on the reels during 1 spins and the Win Freeze will activate granting further respins.
You can check out all of the Moby Dick slot bonus features in the gameplay video below.
Gameplay and Bonus Features
|Moby Dick Slot|
|Re-Trigger Bonus Round||Yes|
|Special Features||Win Freezing Feature
|RTP (Return To Player)||96.00%|
The main bonus round on Moby Dick is triggered by landing 4 or more of the special “Free Spins” Scatter symbols, if more of these symbols land on the reels during the Win Freeze respins then the number of initial free spins awarded increases as shown below.
- 4 Scatters – 10 Free Spins
- 5 Scatters – 12 Free Spins
- 6 Scatters – 15 Free Spins
- 7+ Scatters – 20 Free Spins
The main difference during the bonus round is that the middle reel is heavily stacked with Wild symbols making it much easier to create winning pays and bonus re-spins.
The free spins can also be re-triggered during the bonus round.
Moby Dick Slot
The Moby Dick slot from Rabcat/Microgaming is yet again a truly amazing graphically release from Rabcat but does come with some issues too.
The design, theme and animations are truly top notch, some of the best we have seen this year and warrant checking out just to see what an amazing job they have done on this title.
The paytable, on the other hand, is truly horrendous, with 5 of a kind wins for the low paying symbols resulting in quite horrific pays even for a totally full screen.
The highest paying symbols, in contrast, pay very nicely indeed, but the main issue here is that these premium symbols are very scarce indeed on the reels, and even getting a 3 of a kind win from then during the bonus round is a feat in itself.
Overall, a truly amazingly designed slot that is let down badly by a paytable that focuses on 2 extremes.
