The Sky High online slot machine represents another outstanding part of the game collection possessed by the Simbat software developing company based in Seychelles. The uniqueness of this pokie is reflected in the fact that it comes with two sets of reels.
The theme is designed to resemble classic fruit machines, so it will certainly become the pokie of choice for all those players who are into classic online slot machines. A really interesting and nice touch is the lever located to the right of the columns. One can use this lever instead of the “START” button to set the reels in motion. This detail gives the impression that the player is actually sitting in front of a real slot machine!
The Sky High slot contains the wild symbol, but not the scatter. The free spins feature is missing, as well as the multipliers. There is a lack of an additional bonus round too.
The autoplay option is embedded.
One can play this pokie for free with no need to download or register. The only requirement is pre-installed Adobe Flash player. A mobile version hasn’t been released yet.
The Basic Mode & the Top Mode
As mentioned above, the Sky High online video slot consists of two sets of reels.
The bottom set is reserved for the Basic level, and it contains 3 reels and 3 lines that form a classic 3×3 scheme. The value of a single coin is locked to 1, and it can’t be adjusted. The amount of the wager per line occupies the value of 1, and it also can’t be changed. The number of paylines in the Basic mode is 1, so one can conclude that the amount of the maximum bet per spin in the Basic game would also be 1 credit.
The value of the maximum payout (jackpot prize) in the Basic level is 200 credits. One can achieve this prize by placing three jackpot symbols on the payline.
The Basic game comes with an additional “HOLD” feature. This feature has the ability to freeze the reels, which can facilitate the process of creating the winning combination. One can also use the “AUTO HOLD” option, so one doesn’t have to freeze the columns manually. The “RESET” button is used to terminate this option.
After each winning spin, one can choose either to collect the prize or to move the payout to the Top level by using the “START/SAVE” button.
The Top game also comes with a total number of 3 reels arranged in a 3×3 scheme (with 3 bet lines). The number of paylines is the same as in the Basic mode. The size of a single coin is also set to 1, and the player can’t adjust it.
However, the amount of the bet per line (and the total bet) in the Top game differs from the one in the Base game. Here one can choose to play with a total stake (the maximum bet) of 10 or 20 credits. The winning combinations also include the criss-crossed symbols (not only the ones on the payline in the middle, such as in the Basic game).
The amount of the maximum payoff (jackpot prize) in the Top game depends on the value of the total bet:
- If the total bet is 10 credits, the jackpot prize is 100 credits;
- If the total bet is 20 credits, the jackpot prize is 200 credits.
One can use the “COLLECT/RESET” button to move credits from the Top game to the Basic one.
Special Symbols & Features
The only symbol that has some special features is the wild, which is illustrated as a balloon. It becomes a wild when it’s landed on the payline position of the 1st reel. It remains on hold in order to help the player to create a winning combo (with its ability to substitute). The wild feature gets terminated when one collects the winning or when a Sandbag symbol lands on the reels.
There is one more of slot machines Sky High additions – the Gamble feature. It gets activated after each winning spin, allowing one to double his payout simply by choosing the head or the tail of the coin.
