Design

This game is slightly older than most but that doesn’t make it any less appealing, the fact that it's still in our collection shows that its stood the test of time with its retro style design.

In terms of the icons used in the game, the lower paying symbols are a bunch of mouth-watering fruits. There is a papaya, a pomegranate, a mango, an avocado, and a banana - positively yummy, the lot of them. 

The high paying symbols are all straight from a seafaring adventure book; a sextant (not a sexy thing), a coat of arms, and a ship in full sail (somewhat sexier). There are also a number of scatters to help you earn some additional bonuses. Catch the sea monster scatter for the scatter pays, or the compass scatter for the instant win bonus round. You should also keep your eyes peeled for the golden doubloon as this is the game’s Wild.

How to Play

Age of Discovery is as simpler a slot as any we have encountered before, then again, we're yet to be baffled by one. When you load it up, the first thing you should decide is how much you want to bet. This is first done by selecting the number of paylines you want to wager across using the blue button at the foot of the reels. You can then use the brown button to decide how many coins you want to bet per line. The value of each of these coins can be determined by looking at the counter to the right of your credits.

A win is earned when you land three or more matching symbols from left to right along one of the game’s paylines, except in the case of the banana symbol which only needs two matching symbols. For more information about the game’s paylines and how much the symbols are worth, you should head for the paytable. This can be found by pressing the “View Payout” button above your credit counter, you'll also find up to date RTP (return to player) information here.

Game Features

Don’t let the fact that this game is a little older put you off the wins! There are still some amazing bonus features to be had. 

The easiest to find are the scatter pays. Just land three or more of the sea monsters on your reels to claim. The beauty of this feature is that you don’t need the symbols to land on a payline to win. They just need to appear on the reels!

The other feature is the Treasure Hunt! Land three compass scatters to get started. You will be shown a map with lots of potential places for buried treasure. Have a hunt and see what you can find. Clicking each of the X’s will reveal whether it is a treasure or a skull. A skull means game over and the bonus ends. With the chance to win 32,250 coins, this really is a bonus which is not to be sniffed at!

Overall, we think Age of Discovery is an extremely enjoyable, albeit somewhat simplistic game. With the chance for big wins (if you're very lucky) and the voyage of a lifetime you really could do a lot worse.
