Play’n GO, a famous supplier of online pokies, has announced another top-draw addition to its ever-expanding collection, Highway Legends. The developer terms it a “historical online slot” with the storyline following two highway robbers – Swift Rick and Lady Pearl who roam the highway as they steal anything from the coaches.
This steal-worthy slot is based on a standard 5×3 game board with up to 20 bet lines. Players can form a routine win by landing at least three gold-encrusted 10-A card royals. These symbols can reward them with 0.5x to 5x the stake.
During the daring heist, you can also find other valuables like rings, earrings, and golden necklaces to win a payout of up to 20x the stake. When you come across Swift Rick symbols, the game can reward you with up to 25x the stake, with Lady Pearl paying out the most at 30x.
But things are only getting heated. The wild symbol (two crossed shotguns) can replace all paying symbols when it lands on the reels. That’s not all. This symbol is the game’s highest-paying icon, rewarding players with 4x, 10x, or 50x for 3, 4, or 5, respectively.
As the action continues, you might come across three additional wild symbols, including a stacked wild (rider on horseback), sticky wilds (bandit), or standard wild (gold plaque). These wild symbols can work together to help players win the 2,500x top payout.
When the money bag symbol appears on reels 1-4, it can come with 2x to 30x multiplier values. Note that you can increase the amount in your treasure chest after landing this symbol on reel 5 and any previous reel.
Additionally, the scatter portrayed on the reels as two golden pistols can fire to help players cause a commotion and win prizes worth looting! This icon appears on reels 1, 3, and 5, three of them triggering the free spins mode. The fifth reel will re-spin and assist in securing the reliable third scatter if only two scatters land, similar to the bandits’ multiple fallback strategies.
In the meantime, the focus of the sticky wild feature is Lady Pearl. Wild Symbols can appear during any spin and stay there for the entire duration, accumulating more wilds as they move around the grid. Conversely, Swift Rick can stack up to four wilds during the stacked wild feature, including a dynamic animation showing players where the wilds will emerge. With Play’n GO’s two heroes amassing all the loot, this feature is a one-to-one translation of the story.
Speaking at the launch, Play’n GO’s Head of Game Retention, George Olekszy, said:
“Who doesn’t love a historical slot? Highway Legends has some really innovative features. From the Stacked Wilds that create lots of potential, down to the individual character abilities – this slot captures the magic of period-themed adventures.”
The historical setting of Highway Legends will undoubtedly appeal to fans of the developer’s Wild West shootout in Wild Trigger (2022), Masquerade (2015), and the train-themed Wild Rails (2019).
