Anchors Away!

Smooth Sailing is a 5 reel, 3-row slot game with 20 paylines and an RTP of 96.22%. Be warned: this won’t be a nice relaxing boat ride as Smooth Sailing has a high volatility with serious payout potential. Bets start at 0.20 coins to 40 coins meaning that types of budgets are catered with this slot. Additionally, the graphics leave a lot to be desired and aren’t as crisp as other competitors. However, I believe this is potentially more a stylistic approach rather than a lack of resources approach.

The background depicts an open sea, with the grid displayed on a luxurious yacht or cruise ship.  The symbols are classic Royal Symbols, which pay from left to right are worth 5-7.5x the bet in the base game. In the bonus game, you will find symbols increases to 25 to 50x the bet for five symbols landing. Other symbols shown in this feature include several nautical themed symbols such as a wheel, anchor, bell and captains’ hat. Wilds are included in both the base and bonus game, and if you land 5, you can win up to 1,000x the bet.


Don’t Go Overboard

The highlight of Smooth Sailing is the Connectify Pays Bonus Round which can be activated in two ways. To enter this round, you can either land the scatter (cruise ship symbol), which you will need to land 3 to activate the free spins bonus round. Or you activate the Gold Coin Bet and are awarded 3 ticket scatters on the grid. You will know the Bonus Round has been activated when you can see a list of boats with prize values on the left side of the reel. The boat prizes are split into 5, and you need to get 5 boat symbols along the same line to complete a boat and win the prize.



Smooth Sailing is a unique slot game that is sure to accommodate a range of players through its high payout and volatility. However, this really is only applicable to the bonus round game, which is the true standout. The base game is where the ‘smooth’ in Smooth Sailing comes from, but the bright colours, fun soundtrack and theming really brings this game to life.
