Paddy Power Games presents ‘Highlander' based on the cult film from the 80's starring Christopher Lambert and Sean Connery. In which a deadly tournament of sword wielding immortals (who can only be killed by being beheaded!) plays out across the ages with the last one standing receiving the ultimate prize! It's also worth mentioning that the soundtrack for the movie was by Queen with great tracks like ‘A kind of Magic' and ‘Who Wants To Live Forever'.
Highlander is a 5 reel slot casino game where you try to match three or more symbols (featuring clips from the movie) on a win line to win a payout. Payouts increase depending on the number of matching symbols you have.This is also a 20-line slot game that may present 20 winning combinations of five symbols across its five reels. A ‘win line' is a line of symbols that MAY contain a winning combination when the reels stop. A win line must contain a minimum of three consecutive symbols (appearing from left to right) for any payout to be made.
You can select the win line to bet on in the following ways:
- Click the Max Lines button to bet on all 20 lines.
- Click the Lines arrow buttons to increase or decrease the number of lines.
- Click on the individual numbers displayed on either side of the reels.
- Click on a number to bet on that number of lines. For example, if you click on the number 9, then you are betting on win lines 1 to 9 inclusive.
Click the PAY TABLE button in the game to view the 20 win lines along with payout values for each symbol.
Free Spins – Scatter
If three, or more, Free Spins symbols appear anywhere (they do not have to be consecutive, or left to right) when the reels have stopped you are awarded free spins.
Sword Skill Bonus – Scatter
If three, or more, Sword Skill symbols appear anywhere (they do not have to be consecutive, or left to right) when the reels have stopped, the Sword Skill mini game begins.
Three Tartan Tiles appear (possibly featuring the official tartan of the clan McCleod but I can't confirm this). Click on one to reveal a bonus win amount. Bonus wins are credited to your account immediately.
Battle Bonus – Scatter
If three, or more, Battle Bonus symbols appear anywhere (they do not have to be consecutive, or left to right) when the reels have stopped, the Battle mini game begins.
The aim of the game is to battle and defeat the mighty Kurgan, accumulating money on the way. Simply select one of the sword manoeuvre options available and watch the fight play out. If you win your sword fight, winnings are added to the Battle meter and energy is restored, however, if you loose, an energy level is depleted. Choose again to go into the next battle. If you have three unsuccessful battles, then your energy runs out and the mini game ends. A final total bonus value is displayed at the end of the game.
I loved the movie and subsequently thoroughly enjoyed this game as it features clips and quotes from the film itself. So hone your swords with a whet stone and remember “there can be only one!” and just go for it, for as the Kurgen says “It's better to burn out than fade away!”
