Launched just this year (2017), Moby Dick is a brand-new slot machine game released by Rabcat. This particular online casino game contains the usual stunning graphics from this developer, as well as a theme which many slot players have longed to see in the online casino world.
Of course, Rabcat’s Moby Dick is based on the Herman Melville novel of the same name, and the legendary white whale does make an appearance in the slot machine to boot.
Moby Dick may be developed by Rabcat, but Microgaming are ultimately the ones responsible for shipping the game off to casino sites. Without the assistance of Microgaming, Moby Dick would have trouble finding its way to the internet’s leading casino sites (even with a theme as big as this).
However, since it is launched on Microgaming’s open play platform (which features software from many top, but smaller-scale developers), Quickfire, most major casinos will be able to enjoy the Moby Dick slot.
How to play it
There is certainly nothing overly impressive about the gaming structure used in Moby Dick. Rabcat have opted for a basic 5-reel, 25-line gaming platform, and it is one which can see players wager anything from a floor of 25p per spin up to a capped maximum stake of £50 per spin. That’s a decent wagering range which should be agreeable to most online slot players.

Wild symbols: Moby Dick does contain wild symbols, and they appear in the guise of the ship’s wheel. The symbols can substitute for all other icons in the game, except for the scatter icons in this slot. Wilds are the joint best-paying in the game.
Re-spin bonus: Whenever a win is acquired, a re-spin feature is triggered. All the symbols which formed a part of the winning combo will remain frozen on the reels, whilst the re-spin occurs. This gives players a chance to land further winning symbols and add them into that combination. Only when no wilds or new winning combo symbols appear does this bonus end.
Free spins bonus: Players can trigger a free spins bonus round by landing 4 or more scatters on the reels of the game. Scatters appear stacked, so you can bag more of them than you would usually be able to. Scatters appear as the famous whale’s mouth. When players land 4, 5, 6 or 7 scatters, they will start the free games feature with 10, 12, 15 or 20 spins in total.
Two types of symbols can see you win the jackpot in Moby Dick. That jackpot is non-progressive and stands at around 200 coins.
To get your hands on the jackpot, you will need to line up 5 of the wild symbols or Moby Dick himself on any payline in the game.
With a theme as big and popular as Moby Dick, there is a good reason to believe that Moby Dick’s theme alone will excite players enough to try their hand at this game.
However, the availability of the title on Microgaming’s Quickfire platform means that it will be widely available, which will surely ramp up the number of players playing this slot even further.
We’ve got a sneaking suspicion that most will love Moby Dick, even if it is a rather basic slot in terms of features.
