Magellan is a slot game by software manufacturer EGT. It is loosely based on the famous Portuguese explorer, Ferdinand Magellan, who is believed to be the first European to cross the Pacific Ocean. What’s more, he was also the first to circumnavigate the globe, which he accomplished whilst leading a Spanish expedition to the East Indies. The backdrop of Magellan pictures the blue waters of an unsettled sea. In the distance you can see the shoreline of a tropical island, with sparsely growing palm trees. You can also catch glimpses of sails on the water. The graphics here aren’t too stunning and there’s no real music to help immerse players in the game. Apart from the corny sound effects that typically accompany winning spins, gameplay will be pretty quiet. The symbols on the reels are all set against watery blue backgrounds. In addition, they also feature the full range of lower value playing cards. There are also a few character symbols, including of course, Magellan himself. Players can also benefit from several special features, as well as the regular EGT side games, which are always welcome.
