Cat Burglar is the latest free slots from NextGen Gaming that offers 5-reels and 25 pay lines.
Introducing Treasure Skyland
Treasure Skyland is the new release from Just for The Win which is an independent studio which is partnered by the development team at Microgaming. The theme of this slot was officially categorised as, “Monkey Pirates in the Sky.” It is fabulous when a unique concept hits the market particularly one like this that has never been seen before. We have seen monkey pirates such as Jack who is the monkey in Pirates of the Caribbean, however it is rare to see a monkey pirates in the sky!
Theme and Design
There is no denying that this is a good-looking slot with the 5-reels and 3-rows being transparent allowing the blue background which is complete with stone islands and Asian boat flying ships to shine through the reels. Superbly crafted Chinese characters have been used on one of the premium symbols which makes me believe that this slot will target both the Asian and European markets.
Bets and Volatility
The bet range on this pirate voyage start from a minimum of 10p per spin up to a maximum of £100 per spin. There is an interesting set of statistics for this slot and I was quite surprised to find that Just for the Win has heightened the volatility seeing as how most of their slots offer a medium volatility but this slot has moved away from their norm. Even though this slot has a higher volatility it still offers a return to player of 96.18% and a decent hit rate of one in every four spins which equates to 24.24%.
There are 20 pay lines on offer in Treasure Skyland and the games pay table covers 5 low and 4 high paying symbols. Different coloured coins which are imprinted with 10 through to Ace make up the lower paying symbols and even though these are unique they are simple and as they are seen through the slot it makes the game feel sparse at times. When it comes to the higher paying symbols the three monkey pirates made up of a cabin boy/market, a male and a female pirate. The most valuable symbol is represented by the games logo which will reward you with 40x your stake if you land five on a pay line. The games wild is depicted by the symbol of a map, this is also worth 40x your bet and it can substitute for any of the pay symbols to create winning combinations.
Features in Treasure Skyland
There is no doubt that the rules in the base game are uncomplicated, however there are various features that will help you to boost your winnings. On each spin you make there is a feature frame which moves around before stopping over any of your symbols that are on your 2nd, 3rd or 4th reel at random. If the spin provides you with a win and one or more of your winning pay lines moves through the feature frame and the feature reel spins into action. The feature reel is situated on the furthest left side of your screen and the reel then spins, stopping at random on one of the features that are described below.
The first feature is the Multiplier where you will be rewarded with a 2x, 3x or 4x multiplier added to your pay line/s that activated the feature. Next comes the Symbol Upgrades and this sees the regular symbols being upgraded and they can move three levels on your pay table. The Win Extend feature rewards you with wilds on the pay line that activated the pay line. For your three symbols you are awarded with two wilds and landing four symbol wins provides you with a singular wild. Strangely, landing five-win symbols will not activate the Win Extend feature.
The next feature is the Symbol to Wild and this simply turns all winning symbols on your pay line that triggered the feature into wilds. The final feature that can be activated with the feature reel is the Pick Bonus feature. If you are lucky enough to activate the feature you will be directed to a new screen which is covered with 15 floating islands. You start the feature with 5 picks and every one of these picks offers a cash prize that is equal to 0.5x, 1x, 2x or 5x your total bet. As well as cash prizes some of your picks could provide you with additional picks to keep the feature playing for longer. You will see a prize map which is located to the right of the islands on your screen and this map has 15 steps on it. Every pick moves you one step closer to the final prize on the map. When you get within the last seven steps on the map you will be awarded with prizes that equate to 10x, 20x, 30x, 50x, 100x, 250x and 1,000x your total stake. Once you have used all your picks and your final position on your prize map has been determined the feature ends.
Treasure Skyland is a stylish slot with low expectations with regards to potential, however that is what players will expect from the developers at Just for the Win. The slot is well thought out and what it offers will appeal to a certain set of players. The theme is portrayed well and unique and despite there being no free spins, the bonus pick feature makes up for this. You may find play can be boring if you have a bad run where you are thrown the occasional modifier now and then.
I was really surprised when it came to the volatility offered as Just for the Win appear to have scaled back on the visuals and design of Treasure Skyland whilst pushing up the volatility and if I am honest I would have liked to have seen the win potential ramped up. The most you can win is 1,000x your stake if you are lucky enough to make it to the end of the prize map in the pick feature, and whilst this is a welcomed prize it pales in significance when compared to competitors slot offerings. It is true that you may be surprise with what this slot offers, however a deal-breaker for many players could be the lack of huge wins that this slot offers.
