The Moby Dick video slot uses a 5×3 reel layout and the symbols are a mixture of alphanumeric playing cards A to 10 with a teak deck background and icons including beer tankards (although these could be easily and amusingly mistaken for a mug of tea), a ship’s wheel, an anchor and the Jaws-like inside of a whale’s mouth. The design is fantastic and balances the dark undertones of whale slaughter and life-threatening danger with light-heartedly convivial illustrations and comical character expressions.
Captain Ahab looks genuinely anguished and determined in equal proportions and orange billowing clouds give a sense of a storm brewing – it all adds to a pleasingly turbulent atmosphere that heightens the gaming. The Moby Dick scatter and wilds are the juicy icons to be had; landing 5 of these on a payline awards 200 times your total stake. You can start at anything from 0.25 to 25 coins, so again, it’s very accessible, but there’s also some decent bucks to be made.
