I just have to say it: many slot game developers often use the same themes over and over again. Many slot games are filled with fruit, candy or animals for example, these seem to be the most popular themes. Similarly, there are also many gamers inspired by Ancient Egypt and similar historic settings, so when there is a game that offers something completely different, it is always something to be happy about.
The slot machines that is the subject of this review is one of them. It is called Sky Way, and has been developed by Playson. The developer shows us their good taste and offers us a trip into the air inside a vintage-style flying zeppelin. You can enjoy an original and nice atmosphere that has elements of steam-punk and the 19th century. Are you ready for take-off?
A very catchy theme
What makes this game so special is the atmosphere that you get when flying inside this Victorian vessel. The game has 5 reels and 21 pay-lines, and you can change the game settings on the dashboard at the bottom of the screen that looks like elements of cockpit controls. The background of the game shows clouds in the sky, which will give you the impression of looking through the cockpit of an antique flying machine. The layout creates a very good gaming atmosphere and it takes you directly into the adventure.
Traditional game features
Although the developer Playson had decided on a unique theme for this game, the actual game elements are relatively common.
You can find two different special symbols in this game. One of them shows a woman with aviator glasses, and she is the wild symbol that can replace other symbols to form complete winning combinations, and you can also win 10, 100, 1,000 or 9,000 coins respectively when you manage to get the symbol 2, 3, 4 or 5 times on the same activated pay-line.
The symbol showing a zeppelin is the scatter symbol, and you win 2, 5, 20 or 250 times your total bet when you manage to get the symbol 2, 3, 4 or 5 times respectively anywhere on the screen. 3 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels also award you 16 free spins during which you can win additional free spins, and the scatter symbol also acts as a wild for winning combinations.
A solid and varied game
I would like to mention that these standard game features are in no way bad, they are even rather refreshing. You can enjoy these well-known and simple features in a fantastic atmosphere and experience the charm of vintage flying while playing the game.
I would also like to mention that the game is a lot of fun, as the variance (volatility) is relatively low, which means that you will win more often, but smaller amounts, and every now and then even a larger amount. The game is also very generous with the players, and has a theoretical return to player payout rate of 95.70%.
In conclusion, I can say that the developer Playson has done a great job with the video slot Sky Way. The game has everything necessary to make most players happy, and the vintage theme and features result in a game that is worth to be discovered.
