Loose Cannon Slots
Loose Cannon Online Slot - A 5 Reel, 25 ways Microgaming video slot
The pirate theme works exceptionally well for online slots but it takes a giant software developer like Microgaming to strike the right balance between humor and action. In the Loose Cannon Slot launched by Microgaming in March 2014, circus music cheers you on as you spin pirates and cannons to land treasures on the reels. The game is easy to understand and it is jam packed with cool features which lead the way to a 75,000 coin jackpot.
Theme and Graphics
With Loose Cannon from Microgaming, players get a classic pirate slot game with some very modern features. The graphics are straight forward enough, with a male pirate as well as a female pirate - neither one very charming nor pretty - which create this game's humor and gives you a reason to smile and giggle. There are also symbols like a treasure chest, crab with rum, treasure map, and more, which enhance the cool pirate theme. The symbols come to life as the reels spin and then land on different combinations. The animations create special scenarios where anything can happen.
This is a 243 win way slot machine with 5 reels which means that you have 243 ways to win. The win ways move in all directions and therefore it is fairly easy to get winning combinations, even though this isn't obvious at first glance. Luckily this game is highly automatic, storing your wins so that you won't miss out on any treasures due to its fast pace.
Free Spins and Great Wins
Keep an eye out for the wild cannon, which is the wild symbol in the Loose Cannon slot game. When the wild cannon appears, it can be used as any other symbol except for the scatter symbol (a compass). When it shows up on reel 3, the "reel" fun begins. On reel 3 the cannon will start to fire turning adjacent symbols into wilds. This could lead to the entire screen being covered by wilds, which means big winnings. You can also benefit greatly from the scatter symbol. On reel 1, 3 and 5, the compass will start up the free spins bonus feature with 15 free rounds. This bonus round can start up again if you re-trigger it during the free spins.
Making your bet
This slot machine does not offer a progressive jackpot, but the 75,000 coin top jackpot should be enough of an incentive for you to place the maximum bet. If you are not a high roller you can start on the lower end of the betting range at 0.3 coins. Brave slots players can make that 30 coins for a great return once the maximum jackpot is hit.
But more important than the chance of winning is the great entertainment that Loose Cannon provides. This is a game that you can play over and over again, regardless of the returns.
