Ancorina is not the first ever slot to takes its inspiration from the magic that surrounds gypsy travellers, but it is probably the first to display a random anchor symbol, and why the developers decided to mix a maritime theme with that of the Romany travellers we are unsure, but it is a good game all the same. Overall Ancorina is a pleasant slot with some nice symbols which are set amidst a mysterious, dark moonlit land. When it comes to the symbols players can expect to come across a beautifully decorated carousel, traveller’s caravan, chest full of treasures, a crystal ball and of course the random anchor. There is also a couple of symbols that are represented by two alluring gypsy ladies both of which are wild and assist players to complete their winning combinations. This is thanks to players being able to make combinations of matching symbols from left to right and vice versa. Therefore, there are 30 ways in which players can line up a minimum of three of the same symbols on a pay line for bet multiplier prizes of up to x1,000.
Players can limit the amount that they spend by selecting fewer pay lines as they are offered the option to activate 1, 5, 10 and all 15 on their reels. The slot also provides the player with a decent bet range with credits starting from just 0.01 up to 1.00, so players can take part for just 0.15 credits per spin or for the more adventurous as much as 15.00 credits per spin. Ancorina also has two different wilds which is excellent news for the players regardless of their budget, as it is the wilds that can help players to complete winning combinations by substituting for all other symbols on the pay table. However, there is also an extra wild symbol that extends beyond the wild by expanding and the reel where it lands and fills all three positions with the potential to offer additional ways to win. There are also two special bonus scatters that are on offer both activate unique side games when they appear anywhere on the players reels.
Players that land three or more of the bonus chip symbol is taken to a gambling game where they need to place three chips on three of the six symbols that are on offer which are a star, an anchor and the four playing card suits. The gypsy lady then rolls three dice and the player is awarded a prize for each roll that shows one of the special symbols where the player had placed their chip. Alternatively, if the player is lucky enough to land five scattered chests they have chance to go on a hunt for treasure. Five chests will appear on the scree and the player then chooses three of the chests and wins the contents they reveal, there are also some special chips in the chests and if the player lands any of these they will be rewarded with a special bonus prize. Whilst Ancorina is not the most attractive gypsy style slot on the market, the appearance is basic with two dimensional symbols, which is a shame as it is a perfectly functional slot with some good features, albeit lacking some of the glitz and glamour other slots of this genre possess.
