Highlander Pokie Hits Casinos Next MonthTia Winter | 23 February 2018
Highlander was a 1980’s cult classic film that paired thrilling action with the beautiful scenery of the Scottish highlands. Now, fans of the blockbuster movie can enjoy their favourite characters and scenery once again in Microgaming’s latest pokie, Highlander, which is set to land at iPad casinos on Wednesday, December 6.
Microgaming’s sneak preview video has given players a good idea as to what this online pokies game will offer, and anticipation is growing ahead of its release. Connor MacLeod will of course be a main feature in the game, along with many of his iconic lines and some of the movie’s most action packed scenes.
Microgaming has apparently done an excellent job of modernising the movie’s footage for its new pokie, while also incorporating classic pokies symbols like the A to 10 that have become hallmarks of its mobile games. Its exciting bonus features will also ensure that players of all ages, including Millennials, will be able to enjoy the game in all its glory from their iPad and other mobile iOS devices.
102,500 Coin Base Game Jackpot
The pokie has a base game jackpot of a whopping 102,500 coins on maximum bet, and a reasonable RTP of between 96% and 97%. Wagers start from 0.40 up to 30.00 per spin, and landing three scatters in the game will trigger a free spins feature with a couple of other great bonuses in store.
Two of the Highlander pokies’ Scatters also have the ability to turn Wild for even bigger wins, and all of this will play out across 5 reels and 243 Ways To Win in place of traditional paylines. Even the majestic rock soundtrack has been retained in this modern mobile pokie, recreating the movie experience and offering big wins at Microgaming’s licensed casinos next month.
Win Big with Quickening Wilds
On triggering the free spins feature, players will receive 10 free spins and the thrillingly named ‘Quickening Wilds’. According to Microgaming, lightning can strike and transform Highlander symbol positions wild at any time, and every time Quickening Wilds appear, an increasing number of wild symbols will be transferred onto the reels.
The Highlander pokie definitely sounds promising so far, and its HTML5 format means that it will be fully compatible with a wide range of iPad and other mobile devices. However, players will be the ones to have the final say on December 6 and decide whether or not the pokies game truly brings the spirit of the Highlander back to life.
