Rage of the Seas Game Features
There are two types of wild symbols in Rage of the Seas which are each symbolised by a massive reddish octopus. The horizontal variety is a spreading wild, whereas the vertical one is a stacked wild. In both cases, wilds will substitute for all other regular paying symbols with the exception of other wilds, the scatter, or the boost symbol. Speaking of which, the boost symbol takes on the form of a wooden crate. Whenever the boost symbol lands on reels two, three or four, it triggers the boost feature, causing the reel to expand to a total of seven rows, while awarding four feature spins which include one of the five available modifiers. If you happen to land boost symbols on reels two, three and four, then the reels will expand and you’ll be awarded a set of free spins. The expansion area includes increasing the number of ways to win from the standard 1,024 up to 1,792, 3,136, and 5,488 depending on how many reels have expanded.
Land a boost symbol on an expanded reel and you’ll be instantly awarded two feature spins in the base game, or two extra free spins in the bonus round. Random feature modifiers include:
– Spreading wilds – this larger wild will land anywhere on the second, third, or fourth reels before expanding further into adjacent positions.
– Stacked wilds – stacks of wilds are able to appear on the second, third, or fourth reels and cover anywhere between one and four positions.
– Major Reel Upgrade – all gunpowder barrel and anchor symbols are blasted off the reels to potentially make room for higher paying symbols.
– Minor Reel Upgrade – all bottle and ship’s wheel symbols are removed and replaced with potentially higher paying symbols.
– Multiplier – all line wins are multiplied by two.
As for free spins, there are two ways of triggering this round. You either land three boost symbols as mentioned earlier on, or you land at least three scatter symbols on the reels at the same time. These are represented by a skull and crossbones icon and will award anywhere between five and 12 free spins depending on how many scatters appeared in a single spin. Three random features will be permanently active for the duration of this round.
