Time to tame the oceans and head out on a gloriously devastating journey as you face the NetEnt Rage of the Seas mobile slot with your cutlass at hand.
If our title header didn’t give you a clue as to whether we liked or hated this Pirate themed slot, then good. Because this online game is not for the faint of heart, so you need to read our Rage of the Seas review before you jump in.
First, let’s talk about the visuals. This is a gorgeous game; it’s so realistic you can practically smell the oil burning on the softly swinging lantern and the sea air splashing on this dark and menacing Pirate ship.
There’s no Jack Sparrow Tomfoolery here. This Rage of the Seas slot crew is made of menacing bandits, with the four high paying symbols two men and two women at the head of the pack. You then have a parrot, a hammerhead shark, and various ship memorabilia – an anchor, a bottle, gunpowder, a ship’s wheel.
Don’t worry, this isn’t as hard as you might think. There’s a special Boost Box that shows up on the three middle reels and when it does, a Monkey will come out and open up the reels to be 7 rows high, rather than 4 rows high.
This not only gives you more ways to win, but you also get 4 free spins with a special feature. The best are the spreading wilds or stacked wilds, they just add to your chances of getting multiple wins over multiple bet ways.
Then you have the 2x multiplier which just boosts an already generous paytable, followed by the removal of any two of the lower symbols, creating richer reels.
What’s really fun about this Rage of the Seas slot game is that you don’t have to hit the free spins bonus game to get huge wins.
Every time you unlock a set of reels, you unlock a different feature, and those combinations ( a 2x multiplier with a spreading wild) is what creates those Aaaargh! moments. You can win up to 5,000x your bet here.
So yes, the free spins are hard to catch. You need 3 scatters at least, or unlock all the reels and get extra boost boxes. But when you do you’ll play 8 free spins with 5688 ways to win and 3 features always active.
The last time we were this excited about a new game release from NetEnt was probably when we wrote the Dead or Alive 2 slot review.
We may be wrong, but we think this might go on our must playlist for a while longer – and not just because we won nearly 500x our bet during the base game. But maybe a little bit because of that.

Boost Symbol & Feature Spins: When the box symbol lands on the middle 3 reels, that reel will now expand to 7 rows and you'll get 4 free spins (or feature spins).
During these feature spins, 1 out of 5 random features is activated.
If you get an additional boost symbol land on non-expanded reels, you'll get the reel expansion and 1 new random feature is also activated.
If an additional boost symbol land on an expanded reel, you'll get 2 extra features activated (or +2 free spins in free spin mode - more on that later).
Wild Symbol: The Octopus is the wild symbol in this Rage of the Seas slot game, and can only be caught with the feature spins as above.
Expanded Reels and Betway: You start the game with 5 reels and 4 rows of symbols and 1024 ways to win. If you expand the reels to 7 rows, you'll now be playing with 1,792 ways to win. Expanding 2 reels offers 3,136 ways to win, and expanding 3 reels will get you playing on 5,688 bet ways.
Free spins and scatters: 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols on the reels will trigger 5, 8 or 12 free spins respectively. The scatter is the skull and guns symbols.
During the free spins, all reels are expanded so you always play on 5,688 ways to win slot and you'll have 3 boosts active at all times.
We may be biased because we won big on this Rage of the Seas slot by NetEnt, but we have to admit that we enjoyed the mechanics even before that.
Mostly that because with 1024 ways to win you get lots of smaller win in the base game and a reasonable paytable, making you feel like it's not wasting your time.
But as soon as those reels expand and you try and catch wilds and multipliers, you'll start feeling like a real Buccaneer sailing the seven seas and risking it all for life, death, or treasure.
A fun volatile game with beautiful graphics and over 5,000x your bet win. What's not to love?
