Michelangelo is a 5 reel, 99 payline pokie powered by High5 Games and available for free online pokies play from Online Pokies 4U. This renaissance-themed cascading reels pokie is a traditional casino game with a Free Games Bonus feature. But the 99 connected paylines are what really make it stand out from the crowd. The 99 paylines feature offers players a way to really boost their payouts.
In this game, players get to use all the classical icons of Renaissance Italy to make winning combinations across the reels. With playing symbols based upon the works of the world-renowned artist, Michelangelo and glittering jewel graphics, it is certainly atmospheric.
The reels comprise the standard casino playing card figures from Q - A, plus a trio of Michelangelo’s most famous sculptures. Among others, there’s his interpretation of David, which is the symbol with the highest payout.
Playing and Winning
Select your coin value from $0.01 to $1. The 99 reels in this game are selectable in lots of 1, 10, 25, 50 and 99. This means that a spin can be made for as little as $0.01 or you can wager up to an incredible $99 if you go for $1 per line times the 99 paylines. The highest standard game symbol, the David pays out a 1,000 coin jackpot if you get 5 in a line.
But there’s the M symbol too which pays out a gigantic 5,000 times your line stake when players land a 5 symbol combo. The Wild is simply marked ‘Wild’ and replaces any missing symbol apart from the bonus, in any possible combination. However, the Wild only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. The best part of the standard reels play is the tumbling or cascading reels feature.
Any time a combination is made, the symbols will implode leaving a space into which more symbols can drop. This significantly increases your chances of winning per spin and essentially equates to a free spin on every win. The tumbling reels continue to implode every time a winning combination is made. This includes all new combinations making new symbols implode across the reels.
Bonus Free Games
Finding 3 Free Games symbols on reels 1, 2 and 3 lands you in the Free Games Bonus feature and gives you 1 to 4 free spins. If you land on a free spin in the free game feature, these are awarded too. The free game feature also includes not 1 but 2 wild symbols for you to grab, which makes getting into this feature really worth the time.
Michelangelo is a low variance pokies game offering a standard casino pokies experience to players of all levels. The play is simple and intuitive and the huge variance of paylines means that there’s always a win to be had. The game look is definitely at the Liberace end of stylish, lots of shiny faux jewels and gold leaf-looking frames. But it all adds to the fun!
