Red Flag Fleet
Red Flag Fleet by WMS
When a slots developers sees a good performance from one of its games, they will often attempt to recreate that success through the creation of similar games. WMS is particularly well versed in this practice as you’ll know if you’ve ever played Spartacus – Gladiator of Rome and Kiss – Shout it out Loud side by side! The same idea continues here on Red Flag Fleet, which is based on the same concept as the iconic Zeus 3 slot and allows players to experience the unique six reel game board that affords 192 ways to win once more. This time, however, there’s not a Greek god in sight, with the theme of the game firmly taken over by pirates instead.
Hitting the Board
While the game board may be unusual, it’s certainly not overly confusing and while there are six reels that will grow in size from the first onwards, a few spins will be more than sufficient to acclimatise yourself with how everything works. As is often the case when it comes to experimentation from WMS, you won’t need to break the bank when playing for cash either as all 192 winning ways become available for the same cost as a standard forty line video slot.
One of the benefits of extended reels, at least in terms of their height, is the fact that the developer has also thrown in a stacked wild card, represented in this case by the Red Flag Fleet game logo. With all adjacent symbols paying, even a single wild card can make all the difference and it’s onwards and upwards from there when a whole stack comes into play!
Land the Ships to Hit the Free Spins
No pirate themed game would be complete without a ship and so it makes perfect sense that this symbol is used as the main bonus scatter. Just three of them in view are sufficient to trigger the round with five spins, although you’re likely to be far more interested in entering with four or five as you’ll then receive twelve or forty free spins as a result, complete with an instant cash prize based on your total stake.
There are two key features that set the bonus round apart from the base game and the first becomes immediately obvious as the board effectively flips over, placing seven symbols on the first reel and two on the last. That makes kicking off a winning combination far easier, although not as easy as the other special feature. That will see two randomly chosen reels turning completely wild for the next spin and is guaranteed to happen before each spin takes place. You don’t have to stick with the original allocation of spins either, as landing more pirate ships during the game will add five further spins to your total.
The similarities between Zeus 3 and Red Flag Fleet are clear to see but we see no reason not to play both given that there aren’t all that many great pirate themed video slots out there right now!
