SINBAD SLOT FREE SPINS FEATURE
3 ANCHORS LANDING TO TRIGGER ONE OF THE 3 POSSIBLE FEATURES ON SINBAD SLOT
5 FREE SPINS AWARDED ON SINBAD SLOT FOR A 3 ANCHOR TRIGGER
There are 3 possible feature triggers you can start the free spins with on Sinbad, and anybody that has played Bruce Lee by SG Gaming before will be well aware of how these free spin triggers work, as Sinbad is pretty much a clone of that game.
The most basic feature trigger and the one you tend to see the most is the one in the pictures above, this is initiated by 3 anchors landing anywhere in view on reels 3, 4, and 5. For this you will be awarded with 5 free games and on each spin of these one of the reels that included an anchor will be fully wild, the other two that also included anchors will between them have a minimum of 1 wild on. If 4 matching symbols land on reels 1 and 2 then you will be awarded an additional 5 free spins, and the first two reels are held in place until the end of the free spins feature.
The second most likely feature trigger is where you get 4 matching symbols on the first 2 reels, again for this trigger you will be awarded with 5 free games. The first 2 reels will be held in place for these spins but this time all symbols that can't take part in a win on reels 3, 4, and 5 will be greyed out. If 3 anchor symbols land on reels 3, 4, and 5 then you will be awarded with 5 addition spins and it will activate the first feature I described. So basically the first 2 reels remain in place and reels 3, 4, and 5 will again drop in a full reel wild etc.
The best feature trigger and the most rarely seen is where 4 matching symbols land on reels 1 and 2, and 3 anchors land on reels 3, 4, and 5, for this dream set up you will be awarded with 20 free spins. If you're lucky enough for this to happen then the first 2 reels will be held for the duration of the feature, and again either reel 3, 4, or 5 will contain a full reel wild and the other 2 will have a minimum of 1 wild on between them. The feature can be re-triggered by 3 anchors landing anywhere in view on reels 3, 4, and 5.
SINBAD SLOT REVIEW FINAL THOUGHTS
As I previously mentioned this is a clone of Bruce Lee, so if you're a fan of that game that you will most certainly enjoy playing Sinbad. There is undoubtedly some massive potential for unlocking a huge win on Sinbad, just like there is Bruce Lee, but whether you're lucky enough to ever see it is another question entirely.
I do like this game as I find the free spins feature exciting and entertaining, even though it is usually over in a flash. I'll continue to search for the dream feature trigger and hope for that one massive hit, all in all a good clone from Merkur and enjoyed here at Savvygamblers.
