Review Of Moby Dick


If you are fond of literally classics then there is none better than Moby Dick by Herman Melville. It narrates the mammoth encounter between Captain Ahab and the whale named Moby Dick. To tell how the encounter ends would be to play spoiler. Rabcat Gaming has created a slot game titled Moby Dick that will regale all players, literary types or not. It is live at Microgaming online casinos like Royal Vegas, Roxy Palace and Spin Palace.

Moby Dick has five reels and three rows with 25 fixed paylines. The reels are set in an animated background of the ocean that plays the contest between the whale and the captain. The artwork for the symbols is equally fantastic. The high paying symbols are tea cup, anchor, captain and whale. The low paying symbols are playing card icons. The ship’s wheel is the wild symbol. The highest payout is 5000 times the line bet. The tea cup is an unusual inclusion. It perhaps refers to the famous Moby Dick tea brand.

The free spins symbol is the open jaw of Moby Dick. Four symbols award 10 spins, five symbols award 12 free spins, six symbols award 15 free spins and seven or more symbols award 20 free spins. During each free spin the middle reel will have up to three wild symbols. The free spins can be retriggered. The Win Freezing feature is automatically triggered after any win. All the symbols that make up the winning combination are held fixed and a Bonus Spin is awarded in which the remaining symbols spin. If a winning combination is extended or a new winning combination is formed then another Bonus Spin is awarded. This process will continue till there are no new wins. The payouts are made for the final winning combinations after the last Bonus Spin.

Moby Dick includes the standard gamble feature, but it is linked to the theme in an interesting manner. It is an optional feature that can be activated after any win. A tea mug made of copper and one made of silver will be displayed on the screen. You have to pick one of them. If the chosen mug displays a tea bag then your payout will be doubled. However, if a fish bone is displayed then your payout will be lost. You can play this feature up to five consecutive times or till you reach the limit of $10,000.
