Another Megaways slot licenced by BTG, but this Red7 Battleship Direct Hit mobile slot doesn’t come close to catching that glory.
A Megaways slot is one where each reel can have up to 7 symbols, giving you up to 117,649 ways to win. Wins are awarded left to right, regardless of size.
The problem is that, if not done well, these casino games have nowhere to go. Because it has so many ways to win, you need one BIG feature to make all the small wins worthwhile – ie. you need multipliers.
There are so many little wins, that the symbols are next to worthless. Now usually this is made up by big multipliers in the free spin bonus games.
Here you have clever mechanics where the scatter destroys symbols and hits the Battleships above the reels to give you free spins. During the bonus game, these are replaced with 4 tempting jackpots.
But it’s not enough. We got bored quickly, despite the Battle Ship Direct Hit cascading wins giving you value for money.
Because you do get plenty of smaller wins; of course you do. This is a 117,649 ways to win slot with only 10 symbols. It’s just a shame that so many 6 of a kind win symbols don’t even cover your bet.
Look, you can’t deny the slot’s theme is good. Bringing back the old Hasbro game we use to play back when we were kids, it’s fun and recognisable.
Granted, the symbols themselves are a little boring, but the design of this 6 reels 5 row online slot certainly makes you feel like you are at the helm of a great big Battleship.
It’s just not enough to feel like you could save the world. You need to actually get rewarded for your service to this Battle Ship Direct Hit slot.
You are better off trying Vikings Unleashed by Blueprint Gaming, who have also licensed the Megaways reels from BTG.

Cascading Wins: Every symbol which is part of a winning combination will be destroyed and sunk. Symbols will then fall from above and drop down to fill empty spaces.
Turret Fire: At the end of any base game spins, the Turrets on the side of the reels can destroy all low paying symbols, allowing more symbols to tumble down from above.
Scatter Missile and Free Spins: The missile is the scatter symbol and when it lands on screen it will destroy all the symbols above on the same reel as well as the part of the battleship shown above.
Destroy a whole battleship and you'll be rewarded with anything from 5 to 50 free spins, depending on the size of the ship destroyed. This needs to be destroyed in one turn.
If you trigger the Battleship free spins you get your bonus games, but these reels are richer in scatters and features. This is good because the ships above the reels now win you either more free spins or one of the four jackpots.
How to win the Jackpots: Destroy a jackpot battleship during the bonus games! That's it. It's an in-game bonus of:
This Battleship Direct Hit slot is 6 reel, 5-row machine with 117,649 megaways to win that has cascading reels, scatters and free spins.
From time to time, the turrets destroy some symbols, but this rarely leads to anything much unless you can get those scatters to sink the ships above.
The symbols just don't pay enough to give you hope for anything much more than leaving this war with all your limbs intact. But a medal? We doubt it.
