It doesn’t matter how old – or young – you are, there’s a certain kind of magic to the 80s, whether it’s the synth-laden music, the fashion (which always comes back) and even the TV shows and movies from that era. One of the most well-known and well-loved TV shows was, of course, Highlander™, which was set in Scotland and centred on Connor MacLeod (of the clan MacLeod) and his friends and family. While the game offers up Scatters and Wilds, there isn’t an overwhelming number of in-game bonus features, which we don’t see as a negative thing when you consider that Microgaming does enjoy a ‘less is more’ approach to many of its titles. If you’re simply in the mood to kick back and enjoy a few spins and potential wins, this is a game worthy of your time. Because it isn’t strictly a bitcoin casino slots game, you’ll find it at many online casinos offering software from Microgaming. Let’s check it out.
Symbols and Features
Highlander is a 3x5-reel online slots game, but rather than use paylines, it employs a 243 ways to win mechanic, in which wins are awarded for matching symbols landing adjacently to one another across the reels. The reels are set against a stormy Celtic landscape, while the high value symbols feature the most popular characters in the series, including Connor himself, Benda Wyatt, Heather MacLeod and, of course, The Kurgan. The low value symbols are represented by the A, K, Q, J and 10, but they haven’t been stylised to suit the Celtic theme of the game and do, admittedly, seem a little out of place with their bright colours.
MacLeod’s sword is Wild, and it will take the place of all other symbols to help you form winning combinations, apart from the Scatter, which is represented by the MacLeod clan symbol. Should you land three or more of the latter across the reels, you will be awarded with 10 Free Spins. While Free Spins rounds cannot be re-triggered, Quickening Wilds is a random feature that can occur, in which lightning strikes transform random symbols into Wilds to increase your chances of a winning combination.
If you are keen to soak up some nostalgia and try your luck across the reels of Highlander™, then you can make your way to any number of online casinos that support software from Microgaming. As previously stipulated, the title is not an exclusive bitcoin casino slot, so you play with real money and win with real money. Go on, you know you want to. After all: there can be only one.
