Slots Review – Braveheart

Software Platform : Cryptologic

Introduction

Braveheart is one of a number of online slot games from Cryptologic that are based on famous films. Braveheart was a smash hit movie that told the tale of William Wallace (known as Braveheart) who led the Scottish rebellion against the English. This brilliant online slot certainly does the movie justice and is a popular game among online slot players.

A number of the symbols in this slot are characters from the movie. Wallace himself appears as does the English King, Princess Isabelle and Robert the Bruce. Other symbols are all relevant to the movie such as a wooden shield, a sword, a castle and a Scottish kilt. The graphics are really good and the movie is brought to life on the reels.

Pay Lines and Betting Options

As with many online slots from Cryptologic, Braveheart features 5 reels. There are 25 possible pay lines and you can choose how many of them you play in each spin. You can also adjust how much you are betting per line so it is easy to wager low, medium and high stakes on this slot.

Wild Symbol

The wild symbol on this online slot is the Braveheart character. The Braveheart symbol can appear on all five reels and substitute for other symbols to form winning combinations. Any win that includes the wild symbol is doubled, but the wild symbol cannot substitute for the scatter.

Scatters, Free Spins and Bonus Rounds

The scatter symbol is the weapon symbol. If three or more of these appear then 10 free games are awarded with all prizes doubled. During the free games a battle between Scotland and England appears above the reels. If the Braveheart symbol appears then the Scottish side advance and if the King of England appears, the English army advance. At the end of the free spins if the Scottish side is furthest forward, an additional multiplier is applied to your winnings.

There is another bonus game in Braveheart – the Kilt Lift Feature. This is triggered when the kilt symbol appears at the same time on reels 2,3 and 4. You pick one of the kilts in view and are awarded a prize. This feature can be triggered during free spins but prizes are not doubled.

Jackpots

Braveheart is another of the Cryptologic slots that is linked to the Hollywood Jackpot progressive network. The jackpot game is awarded randomly and you have the chance to win one of five progressive jackpots.
