Just For The Win is Microgaming’s ‘little cousin’. It misses the plot some times so hopefully its next release continues in the same vein as Rabcat’s recent whopper, Treasure Heroes. We judge real money slots developers of online casino games on how good or bad their previous releases were.
In the true sense of this spirit let us give Just For The Win the benefit of the doubt. Its newest title is Treasure Skyland. It is a high variance video slot that offers a top cash prize (non-progressive) of 1,000x ($£100,000) your stake. Built into its reel structure is a Feature Reel bonus round. The bonus round is responsible for the big wins, so you might want to keep your eyes on it. With its 5 reel, 3 row, 20 payline set up it looks beautiful, yet it lacks that X-factor to push it to the next level.
The theme of Treasure Skyland is about pirate monkey sailing the Caribbean sea searching for treasure. The visual fidelity is covered in hues of blue along with floating islands of stone. The flying Asian junk boat is the pirate vessel. Because it is the Chinese New Year of the Rat the main character is Chinese symbol. Bets per spin start at a modest £$0.10 to £$100. Symbols on the reels are 10 to Ace coins, the 3 monkey pirates (cabin monkey, male and female pirate), the game’s logo and the map (Wild). The latter two symbols are the premiums. Five of them any position on the reels pays 40x your stake.
Our top Microgaming casinos award gamblers EU casino bonuses to play the game. Even if a slots has a high RTP and its hit frequency is low, it will dent your bankroll sooner than later. Treasure Skyland’s Hit Frequency is 24.4%. It’s quite good expect a winning spin on every 4 to 6 spins. The average return to player percentage (RTP) is 96.18%. On the whole the hit frequency and the RTP combine well. Just a pity they’re dwarfed by the game’s low winning potential.
The wild symbol is the map. It completes a winning combination when it substitutes a symbol adjacent to it.
There are plenty of ‘Modifier’ features in the main game and the Feature Frame or ‘The Helm’ is one of them. It only appears on reels 2, 3 or 4. When it lands on a winning payline, it moves through the Feature Frame which triggers the Feature Reel feature. Once the Feature Reel starts spinning it awards one the following:
- Multipliers: A multiplier win of 2x, 3x or 4x.
- Symbol Upgrades: The symbols on the triggered payline can be upgraded to 3 higher levels. However, this depends on where they land on the reels.
- Win Extend: Wilds are part of the equation here. When a 3 symbol win occurs they benefit from 2 wilds.
- Symbol to Wild: When winning symbols appear on a triggered line they become wilds.
The Pick Bonus is triggered by the Feature Reel feature. A new screen opens up with 15 floating islands. You start with 5 picks. When you click on a floating island it reveals a cash prize with multipliers from 0.5x, 1x, 2x to 5x your bet. There is also a prize map with 15 steps on it. As you click on the steps you’ll move closer to the grand prize on the map. On you final 7 steps, the payout on the map increase substantially from 10x, 20x, 30x, 50x, 100x, 250x to 1,000x your stake. You’ll return to the main game after you revealed all the steps on the map.
Just For The Win did a good job with Treasure Skyland just a pity it does not have a Free Spins feature. There’s enough moving parts in it to keep you busy. The Hit Frequency is okay, at least it won’t suck your bankroll dry before you can trigger a bonus round. JFTW tried to get a well-balanced slots going, unfortunately its low winning potential jolts it slightly. If you’re looking for a 3D slots with more substance we suggest 9 Masks of Fire.
