Shifting Seas Slot Symbols
Symbols on the reels include low-value card royals 9-A, medium-pay parrots, and 3 pirate characters, as well as high-pay chests. ‘W’ is the Wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols except the pirate ship Scatter symbol. There are also 3 Special Wild Feature symbols – a wave, an octopus, and a shark.
Shifting Seas Features
In the Main Game, the game starts with a 4-4-3-3-2-2 reel layout. Every win and every Boost Shift causes the rightmost reel to disappear, and the new reel appears on the left-hand side. The reel height increases for every other Shift Win, up to a maximum of 6×7 grid.
Symbols that are part of the win explode, and new/or existing symbols from above replace the empty positions. The Avalanche feature continues as long as new wins appear.
Special Wild Feature
When one of the Special Wild feature symbols is either part of a win or pushed out of the game area, the corresponding Special Wild feature is activated. If multiple Special Wild features are triggered simultaneously, they are awarded in a specific order: Boost Shift, Symbol Rush, and Wild Surge.
Boost Shift – Awards an extra shift that enables a new reel to be added to the leftmost position of the grid. All symbols in the reel that was previously located in the leftmost position will be copied into this new reel.
Symbol Rush – Randomly transforms 4-8 symbols into new identical symbols.
Wild Surge – Randomly turns 1-3 symbols into Wild symbols.
When a Shift Win pushes out the Bonus symbol, the Bonus with 8 Free Spins is awarded. In Free Spins, the Wild Reel feature may appear on any reel. The Wild Reel feature follows the movement of the reels and carries a Multiplier starting at x1. If the Shift Win pushes the Wild Reel out of the grid, it reappears on the leftmost reel. This will upgrade the Wild Reels Multiplier by 1 and award an additional Free Spin.
