About The Slot
Wild Seas is a 5 reel slot, with 178 ways to win, a pirate theme, three different wild symbols and some highly lucrative bonus features. It’s brought to us by indie software developer Elk Studios and is available across all devices, including mobile, desktop and tablet. It’s also playable from as little as 20p a spin, up to £100 per spin, which makes it suitable for all players and quite the bargain when you consider all those ways to win. Moreover, as we’d classify the game as a medium volatility title, wins come fairly regularly which makes for a fast paced and rewarding game. The slot also boasts a maximum win of 1,780x your stake on every spin, so there’s definitely potential to walk away significantly better of, no matter what your budget may be.
How Does This Mobile Slot Perform?
Here at MobileSlots4U, we think that a new Elk Studios title should always be cause for celebration. Although the software developers are less well known than huge brands such as NetEnt, they definitely deliver the same high quality design, if not better. We’ve been impressed by Elk Studios’ attention to detail before and Wild Seas looks to be no different, offering us an engaging narrative, beautiful graphics and impeccable animation. As mentioned above, Wild Seas sports a pirate theme and is set in the Caribbean Sea. Symbols on the reels include gold, silver and bronze coins, various different pirate characters and our protagonist Anne Bonny, who was one of the most notorious ship captains of the time. The slot also comes with a suitably tense and dramatic soundtrack which adds to the cinematic feel of the game. Elk Studios don’t often release new titles. As a relatively small brand who pride themselves on offering flawless games, we understand that producing slots of such high quality can take some time. We’re not upset by this, however, as it means every game the brand has ever released works perfectly across all mobile devices. Wild Seas offers this same compatibility, and is both quick to load and responsive when played in a smartphone browser.

Game Features: Unlock Two Bonus Games!
Wild Seas has an enjoyable base game, but the slot really comes into it’s own when you trigger the bonus round. This is done by collecting two or more of the black flag wilds on reels 2 and 4. When the round begins, one of the other pirate captains will be chosen at random, and all picture symbols will transform into the same captain symbol, giving you a bigger chance of creating winning combinations.
Furthermore, once the bonus round is triggered, a convoy of enemy ships will appear and cover the entirety of reel five. On each extra spin, the convoy sails 1 step to the left, and the extra spins will continue until the convoy reaches the leftmost reel. However, the aim of the game is to sink the enemy ships and this is achieved by landing pirate ship symbols on reel 5, once the convoy has moved forward. The pirate ship symbols will fire cannons at the enemy ships, and three lucky hits will eliminate the ship and reveal the captain’s treasure chest.
Loot The Treasures!
If you manage to sink an enemy ship in the first part of the bonus game, you’ll automatically trigger the second round of the bonus game. Once a ship is sunk, a treasure chest will take it’s place and you’ll start a whole other extra spins round. The aim in this game is to hit the treasure chests with a cannon, and they will open up to reveal sticky wilds. These wilds will stay in place until the end of the round, but look out for the barrel symbols!
If you mistakenly hit a barrel symbol with a cannon, it will explode and the round will end. This round usually gives you a further 5 or more extra spins and those sticky wilds definitely help to boost your bankroll!
