As you may have guessed, Flying Ace is all about a world class fighter pilot. This slot game has been designed by Microgaming as a classic slot, therefore it has 3 reels. It does have a rather interesting set of special features though, which we will come too shortly. As for the overall look and feel of Flying Ace, the slot is set against the fuselage of a fighter plane, and we’re talking about a 1940’s one at that. Aside from that, there are a lot of red, blue and white colourations, no doubt invoking thoughts of World War II Allied airmen, even if that wasn’t Microgaming’s intention.
How to play Flying Ace slots online
Soaring high into the skies, is Microgaming’s 3 reel, 5 payline “classic slot” Flying Ace. This slot machine game permits players to wager on anything from $0.25 at the lowest stake, up to a maximum of $25 at its highest. Gamers should also note that coin values vary from $0.25 up to $5 a go, whilst players can stake a maximum of 1 coin per line.
There are a number of high flying air icons in this slot to fit the theme, although the majority of the symbols are the same old single bars, double bars and triple bar icons that we see all the time in most classic slots, particularly the ones developed by Microgaming. Those few symbols that are to do with the theme include Ace icons, the game’s logo and the Flying Ace himself, suited in his flying gear.
Flying Ace slot Bonus Features
If the 5 paylines didn’t make this slot stand out from classic slots in general, there are additional bonus features that certainly do. One such feature is the wild icon, which substitutes itself for all other symbols in the game, and offers only the highest win on the line. Those two features alone make it certainly worth looking at, particularly if you are disillusioned with more standard classic slots.
Flying Ace slot Payouts
With only one coin per spin, the payline is relatively straightforward in this classic slot. Players do not pick up anything for a single Ace icon, although they can win 2 coins for bagging 2 of these symbols on a payline. 4 coins are the prize if a player lands any 3 bar icons, whilst 10 coins are paid out for 3 Ace symbols, and 20 coins are paid out for any 3 single bar symbols. If a player lines up any 3 double bar icons, they will win 50 coins, and 100 coins are paid out for 3 triple bar icons on a payline. The second highest payout in this slot is the 300 coins winnable for players who land 3 Flying Aces logos on a payline.
The Flying Ace jackpot
In order to win the jackpot, a player will need to land 3 Flying Ace icons on a payline and not the game’s logo either. We’re talking about the actual flying ace himself. Once they have done this, they will be paid out one of 5 top jackpots, depending on what payline they have won on.
The first payline will payout a total of 1,000 coins for these symbols, whilst paylines two and three will reward the player with 2,000 and 3,000 coin jackpot wins, respectively. A player will net 4,000 coins for bagging all 3 wilds on the fourth payline, whilst the top jackpot of 6,000 coins is won only when 3 wild flying aces are found on the fifth payline.
Other notes on Flying Ace
How do you get 5 paylines on a 3 reeled slot? Well, the answer to that question is rather simple. The fourth and fifth paylines run diagonally. The fourth runs from the top left of the first reel across the bottom right of third reel, whilst the fifth payline runs from the bottom left of the first reel up the top right of the third reel. This fifth reel is where you will need to land your logos if you wish to win the top jackpot that Flying Ace has to offer, which if you have the maximum wager staked, is worth some $30,000 in real money.
