What is this mobile slot about?

There can only be one Highlander mobile slot, and it comes with 243 ways to pay and 2 electric wild features.

If you’ve not heard of the Highlander 1986 movie then move on; go play on the far more hipster Bridesmaids game or something.

Because this is a trip down pure 80s nostalgia for those of us who remember watching a bunch of immortals chopping each others heads off, all to win the ultimate prize.

What can we say, the 80s wasn’t a particularly subtle era.

A surprisingly well made Highland slot theme

Slots based on movies from the past have a tendency to look a little off, if nothing else because it’s difficult to get decade old photos looking sharp in modern age, or like in the Dirty Dancing phone slot just ignore all the characters completely.

Microgaming have always been surprisingly respectful of their movie slot brands, and this Highlander online slot shows that to the max.

With a highly stylish movie poster feel to them, each of the 5 characters on screen shine with an 80s glow that suits them – and on wins you get little clips of the movie.

Some electrifying wild slot feature

There are big wins available here, up to 3416 times your bet – and no multipliers, which is always a good sign.

It means you should be able to get big wins on all spins, especially as getting two scatters on your Highlander slot screen turns them wild.

That said, the reality is that the free spins is where the real action is at, as that’s when you are likely to trigger 4 or 5 wilds in one spin.

Thats when you get moved from the highlands of Scotland to the electric New York city, and a thunderstorms keep adding more and more wilds on each strike of lighting.

But nostalgia will only keep you playing for so long

This almost feels like a classic Microgaming slot of old like Thunderstruck or Agent Jane Blonde.

You might get two wild features, and free spins that hit often, but this is for those looking for a quick burst of action, not hours of play.

There’s just not enough to keep you spinning, but that’s not to say you won’t come back to this Highlander video slot time and time again to try and catch the ultimate prize.

In-game bonus features

Wilds: The iconic Scottish sword is the wild symbol and it will replace all others symbols on screen to help create wins in this 243 ways slot.

2 Scatter Feature: Two scatters (the handle of said sword) anywhere on screen will not only pay out like a scatter, but they will also turn wild.

Free spins and Quickening Wilds: 3 or more scatters anywhere on screen will trigger 10 free spins.

At this point lightning can strike and hit any position on screen, adding wilds. Each time the lightning strikes, you are guaranteed to get more wilds than the last.

However, this bonus feature doesn't hit on every spin, so you usually end up with one really good round with about 4 or 5 wilds.


Closing thoughts

It would be easy to give this an extra star for nostalgia sake, and if you really love the movie, you'll find yourself easily impressed by this Highlander slot on mobile.

And, to be fair, it is impressive, especially during the free spins as you get more and more wilds build up in a thunderstorm of wins.

But once you've gone a few rounds on this Microgaming slot machine, you'll find yourself quickly wishing for something else to happen.

Much like the original movie, this is one of those casino games that is good fun in short bursts. That said, you will undoubtedly come and play again.
