Highlander slot is another Microgaming film-themed game, this time based on the 1986 cult film starring Sean Connery amongst others. Usually Microgaming’s film-themed games have 243 ways, such as Terminator 2 and Jurassic Park and that’s exactly what we get here, although it has to be said with far less action. Symbols are single and Wilds with the Highlander logo appear on all reels, plus scatters of which you need 3 or more anywhere to trigger 10 free spins. The 5 main characters all appear on the reels paying from 12.5 down to 2.5x your 40-coin bet, with card values making up the remainder. You’ll see Connor Macleod, Kurgan, Heather MacLeod and Brenda Wyatt but disappointingly no film clips and very poor animations.
You cannot retrigger the 10 free spins but they have a random lightning feature called ‘Quickening Wilds’ which adds a wild to the grid the first time it occurs, 2 the second and soon. If it appeared all 10 spins you’d thus have 10 wilds being added on the final spin! The volatility is low in the base game although in theory you could hit over 2,000 times your total bet in the feature, poor returns are most likely. The RTP is 96.45% so not bad, but many may consider this Highlander slot a wasted opportunity when comparing it to the games mentioned earlier plus Playtech’s film-themed slots such as Top Gun.
