They are designed to match the theme of the game looking as if made of steel, brass and wood. The ship's wheel stands for Wild while Scatter is represented as the whale's open mouth.

Once you have chosen a total bet value fro $0.25 and $50 per spin, you can also activate up to 100 uninterrupted spins.
To land a win, you have to match 3 or more symbols along a paying line, left to right in succession. The Gamble feature becomes active after each winning spin.
Strategy & Tips
Wild will complete your winning combinations by substituting for all regular symbols. At the same time, it is, along with Moby Dick, the top paying symbol in the game, awarding 5,000 coins for a five of a kind combo. Whenever you create a winning combination, you will trigger the Win Freezing feature which keeps the winning symbols in their positions and awards a respin. Respins are awarded as long as new matching symbols or Wilds make the winning combinations larger.
You need 4 or more Scatters to trigger the free spins feature and win 10, 12, 15 or even 20 free games. During the feature, extra Wilds will be added to the middle reel. The feature can be retriggered, so up to 40 free spins can be won in total. The Win Freezing feature applies to Scatters too, so you can have an additional chance of triggering the free spins feature.
Nothing of the game's appearance won't be lost if you play it on your mobile device, but for more enjoyable gaming experience it is preferable to use a device with a larger screen. Take Moby Dick with you wherever you go and you can win up to 125,000 coins in a single spin.
