As each month ticks by, players who tend to play at both online and mobile casino sites offering the range of Microgaming software powered casino games, look forward to that company’s brand new slot game realises, and one slot that has just gone live is the colourful looking Highlander slot.

If the name of that slot rings a bell with you, then that is probably due to the fact it is indeed themed and completely branded around the Highlander film that was something of a blockbuster back in the mid 1980’s, if playing new slots is something you enjoy doing then read on to find out more!

The first thing you need to know about the design of the Highlander slot is of course its playing structure. Microgaming have somewhat mastered the art of designing those fun to play and always exciting 243 ways to win slots, and that is the type of playing structure on offer on this one.

The staking options are however slightly different to their usual breed of 243 ways to win slots, for the minimum stake you can play this slot game for is 0.40, in your chosen casino account currency, but you can increase the stake per spin up to a maximum of 30.00 if you so desire!

Let me now give you a quick insight into some of the reel symbols that you will be hoping to line up to win any of the winning payouts that are listed on the pay table of the Highlander slot. The character symbols are the ones which do have the highest values associated with them.

There are also playing card symbols, but to be perfectly honest the winning payouts associated with those reel symbols are low in value. If you manage to spin in two of the scatter symbols then you are going to see them turn into wild symbols for that spin so they could help you form one or more winning combinations.

To win the jackpot payout on the Highlander slot from Microgaming, you need to see at least one wild symbol landing anywhere on all five reels. Being wild symbols they are going to stand in for all other reel symbols with the exception of the scatter symbols.

The way in which you are going to get to play off the main bonus game on the Highlander slot is by spinning it at least three of the scatter symbols. Being scatters it doesn’t matter in which reel positions they land, as long as three of them can be seen the bonus game will then be awarded to you.

The only thing left to tell you about is the main bonus game that you will want to see triggering as often as is possible when you are playing the Highlander slot from Microgaming, and to trigger that bonus game three or more scatter symbols have to spin into view on a single base game spin.

When three or more of those scatter symbols do finally make an appearance on a single base game spin 10 free spins are yours to play off. At random during the free spins feature a Quickening Wilds feature can bearded to you and when it is an increasing number of extra wild symbols get dropped onto the screen in various different positions.
