Loose Cannon is a slots game by the premier games developer Microgaming, and has all the usual polished graphics and interesting features associated with that slots designer.
This slots game, thematically, is based on the adventures of a gang of all the seafaring villains you would expect, with symbols that include a pair of crossed pistols, a treasure map, a barrel of rum, a treasure chest filled with gold and jewellery, as well as a monkey holding a cannon ball. There is a musket carrying pirate, and a female pirate wearing a bandana, and the Loose Cannon logo. The Wild symbol is a pirate ship, and the Scatter symbol, which activates the main feature, is a symbol combining a compass and an octopus. The lowest paying symbols in Loose Cannons include the crossed pistols, the barrel of rum and the treasure chests. If you land three pirate symbols, the jolly seaman will flash his gold tooth and fire his pistol!
The Loose Cannon slot machine has five reels, and 243 ways to win, thus doing away with the standard type pay lines. Microgaming slots regularly feature this winning methodology and it characteristically delivers high returns to the player. Naturally, you still have to get matching symbols in adjacent reels to win a prize.
If, however, you can land a pirate ship Wild on reel three, or the centre reel, it will expand to cover that entire reel. The Wild ships on that reel now fire a volley of cannonballs into the air, and some of them will land on other positions on the reels. These other symbols will then also become Wild, and the reels hopefully will then offer an increased number of winning combinations. The Wild symbol only appears on the middle reel in the base game. During the free spins round, though, the Wild can appear anywhere, which can offer some substantially increased chances of a good win playing your favourite online pokies.
The Scatter symbol only appears on reels one, three and five, but if you find them on those reels you will receive fifteen free spins. There is an extra bonus available, as all wins during the free spins bonus round can be formed from right to left as well as left to right. When this bonus round is activated, players can spin reels on a second screen, and the free spins round will be retriggered if you land more Scatters on the reels.
Loose Cannons slots game has standard Scatter symbol payouts, and players will find some great payouts created by the symbols. There is no progressive jackpot in this game, but the base game payouts are good, and the maximum jackpot of Loose Cannons would certainly be a lucrative win. This slots game can often be played for free, so players are able to take a little time to learn the game and the great features that are offered.
There is no second bonus game or gamble feature, but the betting range of Loose Cannons ensures that everyone can have a crack at winning the jackpot.
