Battleship Wild Targets Slot Review
Gamesys have switched from the battle of the skies in Sky Dogs to focus on the seas with their latest release. Battleship Wild Targets is a 5 reel slot with 50 paylines. Taking inspiration from the popular board game of the same name, Battleship includes free spins and wild scatters. We dropped anchor at Jackpotjoy to give the new slot a spin. Does it sink or swim in choppy seas of online slot games?
Play Battleship Wild Targets Slot
Battleship Wild Targets is set on a ship’s scope or radar. Each spin is accompanied with a sonar ping that’s more associated with submarines. There’s no background music, just a thud when the reels drop in. Wagering starts at 50p a spin, but this can be increased to £50 by raising the coin size to the maximum of £1. There’s no autoplay option, but the slot is compatible with desktop, tablet and mobile.
The slot symbols are all related to the Battleship game. The high paying symbols are Aircraft Carrier, Battleship, Destroyer, Submarine, and Patrol Boat. These are joined by torpedoes, anchors, pegs, stars and binoculars. The Aircraft Carrier is the highest paying symbol with x500 for five of a kind on a win line. The Battleship pays x400 whilst it’s x300 for the Destroyer and Sub. Wilds and a Bonus symbol complete the icons on the reels.
Battleship Wins & Bonus Round
Just like in the board game, when the appropriate number of boat symbols appear adjacent on the reels, then a complete ship is created. Two patrol boats pays x2, 3 subs or 3 destroyers pays x10, 4 battleships gives x50 and finally it’s x500 for the carrier. Wilds don’t substitute the adjacent scatter. Whenever wilds lands it expands to turn the whole reel wild. This can only occur on reels 2 to 5.
Get three or more bonus symbols on the reels to activate the bonus feature. This runs in two parts! A multiplier is determined in the first section. Hit as many ships as possible to earn x1 to x4 multiplier. In the second round it’s free spins where you have to set crosshairs on the reels. The aim is to land ships in the crosshairs to turn them wild. There’s a win potential of 1000 coins if all ship symbols turn wild.
Battleship Wild Targets looks great and plays well although the graphics and animation are basic. It’s not overloaded with features but the ones it has are on point with regards the theme. It’s entertaining to play although the bonus round and features don’t seem to surface that often. However, the wilds do help to boost wins when they stack.
