Do you remember playing the battleship board game where you had to correctly guess the position of the ships to sink them? Well, here’s your chance to score a direct hit on a battleship on the Megaways slot from Red 7 and WMS. The two SG Digital subsidiaries combined their creative power to produce a stunning slot with six reels and up to 117,648 ways to win. Destroy ships to win up to 50 free spins or one of four fixed jackpots ranging from 20 to 2,500 times your bet. More thrill on the reels is coming from cascading reactive wins and random turret fire features.
Battleship Direct Hit is a video slot with six reels and a variable number of ways to win from 729 to 117,640, using the Megaways game engine under license from Big Time Gaming. Your attempt at sinking ships on desktop or mobile will cost from 0.10 to 100 credits. The RTP of this medium variance game is set at 95.90%. The maximum win potential in a game round is limited by the provider to 250,000 credits or 8,333x your stake, whichever is reached first. You can also activate AutoPlay to complete 10, 50, 100 or 200 spins consecutively with a range of options when the run should stop.
Load to the game to find yourself on the command bridge of a battleship, complete with radars, controls and cannons as well as various displays for the free spins, jackpots, battleships and amount of ways to win. A marching soundtrack is mixed by battle noises and symbol explosions to complete an authentic battle feeling.
You will find ten regular pay symbols on the reels alongside missiles that will launch to sink ships and wild symbols that appear in the free spins only. At the low end are the cards royals from 10 to A, followed by four differently coloured medals and a battleship symbol. Landing a single six of a kind will pay between 0.5 to 4 times your bet. There are no scatters on this slot as the free spins are triggered by sinking a ship.
At the beginning of every round, the game spins three to seven symbols on to each reel, creating 729 to 117,649 win ways. A display on the top of the game window indicates the number of ways for the current spin. Winning combinations are awarded for adjacent symbols from left to right and will explode once the win has been paid. The remaining symbols will settle at the bottom of the game window, making room for new symbols to cascade into place. This can continue indefinitely until now new wins occur after a fresh cascade.
Watch out for the cannon fire as at the end of any spin in the base game, the two turrets can unleash a barrage onto the reels. Low-paying symbols will be destroyed and replaced with high-value symbols, providing more potential to score wins with premium symbols.
On every spin, the large display on top of the game window will unveil a number of target ships in various sizes. The larger the size, the better the reward. Missile appearing on the reels will be launched towards the target ship and will destroy the ship area above the reel from where they were launched. Destroying all areas of a target ship in the base game will award five to 50 free spins based on the size of the ship, while in free spins it will award additional free spins or one of the four jackpots. The missile symbols will explode like any other pay symbol after they were fired and will a new symbol is dropping into place.
During the free spins, wild symbols are added to reels two, three, four and five, substituting for all symbols except missiles. Additional free spins can be won indefinitely as well as multiple jackpots within an entire bonus round. The Mini, Minor, Major and Grand jackpots are at a fixed value and will pay 20, 100, 500 and 2,500 times the bet.
Yeah, I am one of those early online players who dabbled a lot on classic slots with one to five pay lines and then enjoyed the popular 9-liners such as Thunderstruck or Spring Break from Microgaming. With that background, I was quite sceptical to see game providers overtaking each other with more and more ways to win. But I grew to like them just like those classics as they have mostly exciting features and pay mechanics that make any slotting session very enjoyable. Battleship Direct Hit is even better. It combines the memories of the old board game with a unique slot that has huge win potential and should be fun to play among all ages of slot players.
