Battleship – Search and Destroy Slots

Battleship-Search-and-DestroyA game like Battleship – Search and Destroy will put a smile on a lot of faces. It’s based on the game that you probably played as a kid, using a pen and paper and sinking the battleships of your friends by guessing where on the grid they were located. This game brings real ships into it, and you can see the various carriers, destroyers, submarines and frigates among the symbols. It’s a sea battle themed game, and if you enjoy the military influence in games such as these, you will probably have fun with it.

A 5 reel & 25 line game from IGT, Battleship – Search and Destroy gets you some decent payouts, up to $25,000, and a couple of features (multiple wilds and a bonus game), so overall it’s not a bad choice in these areas, but the true advantage it has is the theme that so many people can relate to.

Features of Battleship – Search and Destroy

With two different types of wilds (one of them stacked), plus a bonus game trigger, the game doesn’t make me regret the lack of scatter symbols.

The stacked wild is present on all the reels of the game, and it takes the form of the sonar symbol with a Battleship logo on it. Get one or more of these stacked wilds, and you can take advantage of their powers and hopefully you can get multiple winning combinations formed, in a single round. This Battleship Sonar symbol is also the one that you’re going to rely on to get the top jackpot, worth up to 5,000 coins.

The second wild gets the same sonar image, but now in the middle there is the word Wild written. This one doesn’t seem to have its own prizes, but it will be useful anyway, used as a substitute for all the regular symbols of the game.

The symbol that shows you the battleship, and which has the word Bonus written on it, will get you in the bonus game, where you have to pick one of the two features provided. 3+ Battleships, on the same payline and forming a combination, will trigger this choice.

Winning Encounter

This is the first of the two bonus games that you have to pick from, when 3+ Battleships form a combo. If you get this one, you will receive free spins, for as long as it takes for you to sink an enemy ship, or for the enemy to sink yours. As many as 100 free spins can be used this way. Each time you hit an enemy, you get a bigger multiplier out of it, the maximum being 5x.


Sink the Fleet

This is a game of Battleship, where you are asked to fire and try to hit the ships that are hiding. There are 5 ships total, and if you manage to sink them all with 8 or fewer misses, you can win more than 16,000 coins.

Betting options and jackpots

Wagers in this game start at $1 per line, and that’s also the only value that a coin can take. You can choose as many lines as you want, a maximum of 25 available, plus you can choose between 1 and 5 coins for each one, but changing the denomination is not possible. The $5 line bet turns into a $125 maximum wager if you allow it.

It’s not a huge prize, but then again you’re not required to place a huge wager either. The 5,000x line bet multiple turns into 25,000 coins, or $25,000, given the right wager per line.

Design and symbols

The battleship theme is appropriately done, with vivid colors used whenever possible, with the symbols that have boats on them being appropriately detailed and with playing cards made out of studded metal. Everything comes together quite well, so I’ve enjoyed playing this game and getting its various combinations of symbols.

Symbols: Battleship Logo (wild, 5,000x)), Sonar Wild (wild), Battleship (bonus), Carrier (750x), Destroyer (750x), Frigate (500x), Submarine (500x), Ace (200x), King (200x), Queen (150x), Jack (150x), 10 (100x) and 9 (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

If you’ve played Battleship as a kid with your friends, or at any other time, you will enjoy this slot machine and the way it was built. It even has a bonus game that brings the pen and paper Battleship back to life, and it’s a decent title in every other area, especially the design.

You will find Battleship – Search and Destroy at any online casino which chooses to use software from IGT, playable either for free or for real money.
