Grab your captains hat and get ready to set sail on the open seas in your quest to score a huge bundle of treasure. The sky is the limit when it comes to Harbour Master, a 3 reel and 1 payline video slot game that was created by Vegas Technology. A throwback to the way traditional slot machines looked, this game may lack bonus features, but makes it up in some of the highest paying jackpots you will find anywhere.
The Harbour Master video slot game is all about being out on the water. The game itself has a beautiful image of a stunning harbour filled with a huge variety of different sailing vessels docked. In addition to the background having everything to do with sailing, the symbols that make up this game all take their cue from nautical components as well. If you love everything about sailing, the Harbour Master game is definitely for you.
Now before you open this game up and take it for a spin on the open seas, you need to understand the betting strategies and how you can adjust your bets accordingly. The first set of controls on the user interface under the reels is the denomination settings. Here you will see big arrows on either side of the coin amount. Toggle the arrows left or right to adjust the setting from .01, .05, .10, .25, .50, $1, $2, $3, $4, $5, $6, $7, $8, $9, all the way to an incredible $10 bet. These settings can be adjusted in between each spin of the reels.
The BET ONE button is the next control you need to be aware of. if you leave it at one coin and have the setting at $10.00 then you are gambling $10.00 that spin. You do have the opportunity to adjust the number of coins by simply pressing the BET ONE button a few times. Each time you press the button, the coin amount is multiplied from 1 to 5 times the original bet. This gives the player the opportunity to have a nice betting range throughout the game in case you want to increase or decrease betting strategies.
For those who simply do not want to play with the control settings and prefer to open this game up all the way, simply pressing the BET MAX button will eliminate pressing all those buttons. Press the BET MAX button once and your coin will move to $10.00 at the full 5 time multiplier for a max bet of $50.00 per spin. You can win some pretty significant amounts of cash when playing with those amounts. The Harbour Master Slot game is quite generous in jackpot sizes too.
Before we jump into spinning the reels, it is important to understand the symbols and winning combinations that make up the Harbour Master slot. The slot machine is made up of 5 different sailing themed symbols. The range from high to low, the clock, the sailboat, the binoculars, the yacht, and the golden compass. There are only 5 possible winning combinations, making it easy for the player to identify a win easily. Any clock symbol on the line pays the minimum. The next winning combination is the 3 sailboats, the 3 binoculars, the 3 yachts, and the jackpot is the 3 golden compasses.
Of course the highest paying combination on the Harbour Master game is the 3 golden compasses. If you are lucky enough to get these all lined up on the line, you score a whopping 1,500 coin jackpot with all 5 coins in play. While the payouts are less if you have less coins in play, they are still quite impressive for a 1 line slot game. To ensure you have a chance at grabbing that jackpot, you should always play the max coins to ensure you don’t hit the jackpot and lose out of scoring it big.
The only other feature that will make your journey out on the open seas at Harbour Master more enjoyable is the AUTOPLAY button. This button gives you the chance to choose a predetermined number of spins, 5, 10, 25, 50, 100, 250 or 500, then sit back and let the slot machine do all the work. The settings can be adjusted so that the reels stop after a win exceeds a determined dollar amount or if your credits increase or decrease by a certain amount. The ability to cancel the autoplay feature is simple, click the button again and cancel at any time.
Once you start playing the Harbour Master game and get comfortable out on the water, you can try to stop the reels spinning with the use of the STOP SPIN button located to the right of the SPIN button. This takes unique timing to master, but get it right and you could be sailing off with that huge jackpot today!
