It's nice to see a video slot game that pays tribute to some of the great explorers throughout history. In Microgaming's video slot game Age of Discovery, players are reminded that many of the places and things discovered on this planet can be attributed to the brave explorers and scientists who were willing to take a risk. From a visual perspective, this is a really cool looking game with nice graphics and video features.
The game is played with a 5-reel, 25 pay line game format. With players allowed to wager between 1 and 10 coins per spin, the game's betting range is $0.01, up to $125 with coin values ranging between $.01 per pay line and $.50 per pay line. The game's highest paying jackpot is $30,000, which represents a pretty decent target for players who are looking for a little financial security.
The standard, low paying symbols used in Age of Discovery are representative of things that explorers might have discovered on foreign shores somewhere in the world. These symbols include exotic fruits like avocados, bananas, pomegranate and figs as well as symbols like a ship, coat of arms and a sextant. A golden Spanish conquistador coin is used as a wild symbol that is used as a substitute on behalf of any of the other symbols, excluding the scatter and bonus symbols.
A oriental dragon print acts as a scatter symbol. If the player lands 3, 4 or 5 scatters, they are awarded a 5X, 20X or 80X multiplier based on how many scatters were landed. A compass is used as a bonus symbol. If the player lands three or more of these symbols, they are taken to the Treasure Bonus feature. From a world map with 30 sites plotted for exploration, the player is permitted to keep picking spots for extra cash prizes until they hit the skull and crossbones symbol, which ends the game.
Verdict: After taking into account some really cool audio and visual effects, Age of Discovery becomes a game worth including on a player's bucket list. The bonus feature is a great way to discover prizes that when added to some pretty decent payouts offered throughout the game, creates a decent opportunity to walk away with some big wins. This is exactly the kind of video slot beginners should use to gain a little slot experience, something they can do while making some extra money.
