Smooth Sailing Bitcoin Slot Review
Gold Coin Studios and Microgaming set sail for calm seas in the October 2021 slot, Smooth Sailing. Highlights of this 5×3 (reels x rows) and 20 paylines slot include a wild symbol, free spins, gold coin bet, scatter pays, and the provider’s signature Connectify PaysTM feature.
Smooth Sailing is based on a pleasure cruise theme, supported by blue skies, blue seas and tropical music. The top-paying regular symbol is two gold tickets with a max payout of 50x bet. Next up is an anchor, ship wheel, and bell, all falling under the high-paying end of the paytable. Of course, there are also low-paying symbols to balance things out. These consist of 6 royal flush poker symbols with a top payout of 7.5x bet.
Smooth Sailing is a Bitcoin slot with high volatility and an RTP of 94.19%. Players can vary their bets from just 0.20 to as much as 40 at the more high roller end. For two alternative slot themes, try Nitropolis 2 from Elk Studios or Madame Destiny Megaways from Pragmatic Play.
The Bitcoin slot has many conventional special symbols, including a wild illustrated as a cruise ship captain. The wild can appear anywhere in the playing area during the main game, substituting for all regular-paying symbols. The wild is the highest-paying symbol when forming its own 3, 4 or 5-long payline, crediting 10x, 37.5x or 1,000x, respectively.
Another special symbol is the scatter, illustrated as a cruise ship, that triggers 10 free spins using the provider’s signature Connectify PaysTM, in groups of 3+. Cruise ships award 2x, 5x, 15x or 200x bet in instances of 2, 3, 4 or 5, respectively.
Connectify PaysTM is a trademark of Gold Coin Studios. In Smooth Sailing, new special ship symbols are introduced during free spins: gold, red and blue. These are expanded symbols that may extend from left to right (up to 5 spaces) connecting different rows on every spin. Although three sections of the same colour will award a fabulous prize, tops on your wish list will be to complete five sections of a yellow train for the 3,000x bet jackpot. Free spins can be re-triggered and a special ‘2x’ symbol will multiply a complete train of the same colour by two, for up 6,000x bet.
The Bitcoin slot also features a gold coin bet feature , which is optional and used to double the chance of triggering the free spins by introducing an additional ticket scatter on random royal symbols. The symbol is also a scatter pay just like the luxury ship scatters.
Gold Coin Studios has optimised Smooth Sailing Bitcoin slot for desktop PC and Android/iOS mobile devices.

Wild-Symbol: An ocean cruise captain is a wild symbol that appears during the main game. She can also combine to create her own payline of 3, 4 or 5 symbols, awarding 10x, 37.5x or 1,000x bet.
Scatter-Symbol: A cruise ship symbol represents the scatter, appearing anywhere in the playing area. In groups of 3 or more, this symbol unlocks 10 free spins. It also awards up to 200x bet in sets of 5.
Free spins: Free spins are played with the provider's signature Connectify Pays feature, where elongated ships on rows from left to right in one of three identical colours can reward up to 3,000x bet. This can double up to 6,000x bet with the 2x symbol on the 5th reel.
Bonus rounds: The gold coin bet option introduces a second scatter symbol, a gold ticket, that doubles the chances of unlocking free spins. Like the cruise ship scatter, the gold ticket also awards a scatter win.
