Cannonball Bay Slot by Genesis Gaming
In the 17th and 18th century travelling between countries had to be done by sea. This was a rather arduous adventure, fraught with danger. Your ship could sink, you could get scurvy from not eating correctly, or you could be boarded by pirates. Especially rife in the Caribbean, pirates were everywhere and many famous stories have been told and made up about them. Slot developers love to use pirates as a subject for their games as they have an aura of mystery and adventure about them. Cannonball Bay slot is one such slot, set in the Caribbean and full of swashbuckling piratical icons.
Cannonball Bay slot is a five reel slot with twenty five paylines. Each payline can have as many as 20 coins wagered on it, with a coin value ranging from between 1 cent and 10 cent. This makes Cannonball Bay slot a penny slot, which will appeal to lower budget players. Being a penny sot however, it doesn’t pay out very hugely. You can expect to keep plugging away at the reels for quite some time before you manage to get anything exciting.
Cannonball Bay slot is a modern slot, having been released late in 2015. The graphics are reflective of this, all sharp lines and smooth animation. The characters in the slot have been drawn in a stylized fashion and are more representative of an animated movie than of realism. The reels are presented on a nautical map, with a galleon on either side. All of the buttons at the bottom of the screen have been done in such a way as to fit in with the map theme, looking like a map legend. Puffs of smoke animate in the background, and the rather epic music track adds to the overall feel.
The symbols in Cannonball Bay slot are mostly nautical themed, with even the base ones being designed to suit the theme. 9 through to Ace sit on top of a dark background with crossed cutlasses behind them. These are worth between 100 and 250 times your line bet for five of a kind. From there we find an anchor, a ships wheel, barrels of dynamite and a treasure chest. These range in value from 500 to 1500 times your line bet.
The wild symbol in Cannonball Bay slot is the cannon itself. This symbol can come up on any of the reels, and will replace all other symbols except for the scatter.
Cannonball Free Spins
The Spanish pirate is Cannonball Bay slot’s scatter, not only awarding free spins but also granting scatter wins for two or more of them. These are also found on all of the reels and do not have to be in any order to pay out.
Three or more scatters will grant you five free spins. During the free spins the cannon on the side of the reels will fire cannonballs at the reels. When these land they will explode, causing random symbols in the vicinity to turn wild. The reels will then be re-evaluated taking into consideration the new wilds. This can land some big wins, but it doesn’t happen very often.
