Red Rake Gaming are taking players on a historical journey on the Silk Road this month, with the launch of their latest online slot. There are several games out there from a few different developers with the title of Marco Polo. This one, like its predecessors, is a history-themed slot.
Marco Polo is set to feature cartoony style graphics, with various Italian and Far Eastern imagery woven and mixed together in its design, alongside the traditional high playing card symbols of standard video slots. There is more to the game than symbols and themes, though.
Travel Through Europe and Asia with Marco Polo
While travelling throughout Europe and Asia on the Silk Road with Marco Polo, the new Red Rake developed slot introduces players to 5 reels and 30 paylines of slot gaming action. Spins are set to cost at least 30p a game, and no more than £30 a spin, while prizes are capped at a non-progressive haul of 30,000 coins.
Predictably, the intrepid explorer himself appears as a wild symbol, and as that icon, he can replace any other symbols required to land a win, save for scatters. They appear as Yin Yang emblems, and these will trigger one of two bonuses when they pop up on the screen.
Choose Between Wins or Spins
Players have an interesting choice ahead of them when they land those scatters. On the one hand, they can choose the Abacus bonus, which is essentially a guaranteed instant win cash prize. On the other, they can opt for the On a Trip bonus, which is the slot’s free spin feature.
That free spin feature allows players to navigate their way across a map based on the larger-than-life explorer’s adventures. Additional free spins and multipliers can be scraped together along the way, with those multipliers potentially boosting wins by as much as 60x their standard value, which is undoubtedly a cause for excitement.
Marco Polo’s Journey Begins This May
This Renaissance-era themed game is making its debut this May at most major casinos which are capable of offering Red Rake Gaming developed slots. It is hardly the most extensive release ever devised in terms of features, but those that the game can muster together should put it just ahead of the rival Marco Polo-themed slot games which can already be found at online casino sites.
