SunQuest is a video slot machine with 5 reels and 9 payment lines. It is quite simple, as it offers a wild and a scatter symbol but no free spins, bonus games, progressive jackpot or gamble feature.
A tribute to classical slot machines
This game reminds us of the first slot machines in history. Its symbols are mostly fruit. We have, among other things, strawberries, watermelon, orange, lemon and cherry. You also find a bar symbol, a seven and a bell, like in the famous Liberty Bell, the first slot machine in history. With SunQuest, MicroGaming pays a tribute to this cult game. As far as the soundtrack goes, the sound effects also imitate mechanical slot machines.
A narrow range of bets
As far as bets go, you can only bet one coin per line. On the other hand, you can choose between different valuesyou can choose one of the following values: 0,25, 0,50, 1 and 2 $/£/€. Therefore, the range of bets is rather narrow as it spans from 0,25 to 18 $/£/€. That should displease both conservative players and high rollers.
WildThe wild symbol can only be found on the second, third and fourth reels. It can replace other symbols in order to form winning combinations. On the other hand, it cannot replace a scatter symbol.
You can complete several winning combinations thanks to a wild symbol on a single activated payment line. In that case, you are only paid for the best one. On the other hand, gains from different payment lines all add up.
The symbol inscribed with the word scatter can make you win money even if it does not appear on an activated payment line. If you get it 3, 4 or 5 times on your screen, anywhere on the reels, you win respectively 5, 20 or 50 coins multiplied by the amount you bet.
In spite of its simple game contents and its narrow betting range, SunQuest has a certain charm which should please people who are nostalgic for mechanical slot machines.
