Highlander Online Slot: Relive the Legend
Highlander is a 5x3, 243 ways to win, online slot, that transports players not only back to the classic, cult film, but also to New York in 1985 and Scotland in 1536. Players shadow Connor MacLeod (Highlander, an immortal warrior and the lead character), whilst he battles other immortals between the past and present storylines: “for there can only be one”. Microgaming originally released Highlander slot just in time for the 30th anniversary of the film’s debut, in 1986, as a branded, tribute slot. Highlander features double Wilds, Scatters, Free Spins, and the original cast in both re-mastered and original shots so players can relive the legend in an impressive and thrilling online slot.
Graphics, Theme and Symbols
The graphics of Highlander slot change drastically between 2 locations to reflect Scotland in 1536, where we play in a green and dense valley with a winding spring stretching into the background, and New York the city in 1985, in the dark of night with the city sprawling in front of us. Likewise, the reel frame also switches from impressively detailed Celtic carved stones to an old, metal, advertising billboard high above the dense city. A constant in both scenes is the brewing storm and darkening clouds overhead that creates a tense atmosphere, fitting perfectly with the howling guitar soundtrack and is key to the Quickening Wilds feature in the Free Spins. The characters and symbols look fantastic; they have been designed in a retro style, reflecting the original bravura of the film, but with a modern, masterful touch. Film fans will love the fact that you’ll also get to see the original clips of the characters, but in case you are not a film fan meet; Present Connor, Past Connor, Brenda MacLeod, The Kurgan and Heather.
