There can only be one! And that one is the new Highlander slot from Microgaming, released last month (November 2017) and based on the 1980s cult classic focused around Connor MacLeod and his battle with other immortals.
Microgaming have proven their ability to convert classic movies into excellent slot games on several occasions, so they seem like the right people to be in charge of this one. So, have they done it again?
About the slot
With five-reels and 243 ways to win, Highlander is a great looking slot, set in the stunning, gloomy Scottish countryside, with dry stone walls, and mountains in the background.
Combine this iconic imagery with the excellent soundtrack and impressive animations, and Highlander manages to bring the movie back to life in a whole new way.
Characters from the movie including MacLeod himself, twice, Brenda Wyatt, The Kurgan, and more play the higher value symbols, while the low values are represented by the traditional 10, J, Q, K, and A symbols.
Connor’s sword is the wild symbol and will substitute for all but the scatter symbol to assist with winning combinations.
The scatter symbol here is the MacLeod clan symbol, and landing three or more of them will trigger the free spins feature.
You get 10 free spins here, with the Quickening Wilds feature active, which transforms random symbols into extra wilds, which can result in some big wins during the free spins game if you’re lucky.
Highlander also has a nice secondary feature, if you land two scatter symbols during the base game, then although you will not gain access to the free spins feature, those two symbols will turn wild, and you could pick up wins from the newly formed reels.
This is a fun game that is a must for slot fans who also loved the Highlander movie.
