Highlander Slots

We all remember Highlander – the cult 1986 movie starring Christopher Lambert and Sean Connery, the latter adopting a ridiculous Spanish accent and the persona of an Egyptian immortal named Juan Sanchez Villa-Lobos Ramirez – and now we can play the casino slot equivalent.

We have OpenBet to thank for this 5-reeler, which showcases photography and motion video from the eponymous action flick in addition to a variety of bonus features, including sticky wilds, free spins and a unique mini-game. There are 20 lines in play, although the player is free to play on however many lines they wish.

Ready to swing the immortal sword? Let’s take a closer look at this movie themed slot.

There Can Only Be One

‘There can only be one’ was the tagline to the Highlander film, and sure enough, there’s only one slot machine – and it’s a good ‘un. Players of all means can grab a piece of the action, as the bet range goes from 0.01 to 25 per line, and the slot is available at a range of OpenBet online casinos.

When you load the game, you’ll get to watch a scene from the movie – the one in which Lambert’s character Connor MacLeod declares ‘There can only be one!’ When the intro video ends, the action can commence. Just use the control panel at the bottom of the screen to set your bet-per-line, number of paylines and auto play spins; then hit that Spin button to your heart’s content.

The Flower of Scotland

The Highlander slot takes place on a simple 5x3 grid bordered in red, and the background shows stills from the film. While you spin, dramatic music from the movie also plays, creating an immersive feel. Symbols on the board include MacLeod (in both Highlander regalia and regular clothes), the four Immortals, Heather MacLeod (the hero’s mortal wife) and The Kurgan. There are also stills from the movie, appearing in front of words or phrases in red writing: The Gathering; The Prize; Swordplay; Holy Ground.

The aim, as ever, is to land matching combinations of three, four or five symbols. To help you in this endeavour, use up the wild when it appears. The wild is the image of the stag. Note, however, that this one can’t stand in for bonus symbols.

Bonus Features

There are no less than three special features in the Highlander slot, the first being the ubiquitous free spins bonus round. This is activated when you land three or more free spins icons (represented by a green eye) in any position on the grid. At the outset you’ll win 1x your total stake plus 10 free spins, but you can re-trigger as many as 50 free ones by landing three or more icons during the round.

The free spin reels are markedly different to the ones in the base game, as super wilds start cropping up. These are regular wilds embossed with numbers. The figures correspond to the number of times the wilds will ‘stick’ in place, and these can significantly enhance your winnings.

Another bonus feature is the Sword Skill mini-game. It’s essentially a guessing game, and it’s triggered when you find three or more Sword Skill icons anywhere on the reels. You’ll be presented with three tartan tiles: just choose the correct one to win a cash prize.

Finally, there is a Battle Bonus feature, which comes into play when you locate three or more Bonus icons. In this one, you wage war with The Kurgan to claim prizes. As in a console game, you must choose your attack move. If it’s a good one, you’ll be rewarded with a ‘Success’ notification, and winnings will be credited to your meter. If your move is not so good, you’ll lose a third from your health bar. When you fail three times, the battle comes to an end.

All in all, you can win as much as one million time your stake, so hopefully you’re handy in a scrap! The potential for handsome wins in the Battle Bonus is one of the best things about the Highlander slot game.

The Verdict

OpenBet’s Highlander slot is good fun, and it’s also a must-play for fans of the movie. The betting range is wide, the pay-outs are solid and the bonus features are numerous. Indeed, you’ll struggle to find many 5-reelers which boast three separate mini-games. Plug in some coins, channel your ancestral Highland roots and you might just win a bundle.
