Let yourself drift through the clouds on an old fashioned airship with Playson’s Sky Way. This online video slot is a cleverly designed, aerial adventure from start to finish, and it makes a nice addition to Playson’s growing portfolio. This online slot offers the chance to win up to 9.000x your bet on a single spin due, in part, to Free Spins, Scatters and Wild Substitutions. Sky Way can be played online from any desktop or iOS/Android mobile device.

Float Along on Cash Currents

Sky Way is a 3-row, 5-reel, 21- adjustable payline, online slot. The reels are set against the glass of an airship window. From the pilot’s point of view, we can see endless clouds reflecting the evening sun. All of the game buttons are cleverly integrated into the airship’s control panel. Various symbol animations add depth to the overall visual quality of Sky Way, and the music sounds like it was taken straight from an action film.

Sky Way displays values for Bet/Line, Total Bet, Win and Balance on a cleverly designed airship control panel along the bottom of the slot screen. To select a Total Bet ranging from 21p up to £105 at Slots Million. The Paytable shows values for matching symbol combos in credits, and they remain fixed despite changes in Bet selection.

Sky Way has 2 special symbols and 10 regular symbols all of which reflect the airship theme. There is a Pilot Wild symbol which can form its own winning combos and can replace any except the Airship Scatter symbol. The Scatter can also form its own winning combos and is involved in triggering Free Spins. The regular symbols consist of 4 higher-paying and 6 lower-paying symbols. Listed in order of highest to lowest value, they include: Professor, Engineer, Compass, Star Chart, Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10 and 9.

Sky Way gameplay is left to right with the exception of the Scatter symbol which pays independently from paylines. Get 2+ Wilds, Scatters, Professors & Engineers or get 3+ of anything else to form a winning combination. Both regular and Wild symbol wins are auto-calculated by the slot by multiplying pays by the Bet/Line and displaying them in the Win Box. Sky Way Scatters are calculated differently. The slot auto-calculates Scatter wins by multiplying the pay by the Total Bet. While the Airship Scatter symbol doesn’t quite take the crown for highest paying symbol of the slot, it has the advantage of not being restricted to a payline. For example, the appearance of 2 Airships on reels 2 & 4 counts as a win and awards double the Total Bet.

To profit along a single payline with all 21 Lines active, get 2+ Scatters, 3+ Wilds-Engineers, 4+ Compasses-Jacks or 5+ 10s and 9s. Sky Way’s highest paying symbol is the Captain Wild symbol which pays (9.000, 1.000, 100, 10) giving this online slot the potential to award up to 18,000 credits along a single payline and up to 378,000 credits on a single spin at Slots Million. That amounts to around 9.000x the Total Bet. To be awarded the maximum prize, the maximum bet must be selected.

Special Features

This online video slot’s Autoplay ranges from 5-999 auto-spins. Press ‘stop’ to end Autoplay manually. There are no advanced options.
Sky Way allows players to hit the spin lever again to either fast-forward or quick stop the reels during Autoplay/regular gameplay.

Sky Way Bonus Features

Free Spins: Get 3+ Airship Scatters anywhere across the reels to be awarded an initial 16 Free Spins. The slot screen changes from cloudy, azure skies to a harsh, mountainous landscape tinted red. The Scatter symbol turns from silver to gold and acts as a Wild symbol during Free Spins. This Feature is re-triggerable with the appearance of an additional 3+ Airship Scatters.

Gamble Round: Players can gamble their winnings for the chance at double the prize. Opt to play a Mini-Game against the airship’s Captain. Correctly guess the colour of a facedown card to increase winnings or guess incorrectly to lose them. Guess correctly up to 5 consecutive times. Click the ‘Back’ button to collect winnings and leave the Mini-game at any time.


Cruise at an Altitude of Awesome

Sky Way has the RTP, max prize potential, Bonus Features, graphics quality and mobile availability to compete with top competitors in the slot industry. Its high win frequency alone is sure to keep players engaged. While testing the demo on the developer’s website, we won about 5.2 times every 10 spins during the first 100 spins – quite a high rate when compared with other online slots. 31% of our total wins (including Scatter wins) were profitable and around 1/3 were multiple payline wins. Out of those 100 initial spins, we triggered 6 Airship Scatter Wins and no Free Spins. Eventually, Free Spins triggered for us after 250+ spins. It awarded 16 spins and a grand total of 14x/Total Bet. Playson may be a newcomer with only 30 slots to its name, however, Sky Way proves that this developer has what it takes to succeed in an intensely competitive market.
