Braveheart Details Page
The software plays smoothly without freezing or jerking despite being rich in graphics. It also offers a number of customization options, most of which can be activated from within the game. The player can choose from three speeds, enable or disable sound options and play in full screen or Windowed mode. The Auto Play can be programmed to stop when a number of win or loss limits are reached.
Easy to Understand (10)
Despite having some innovative features the game rules are easy to understand. The pay table is also self explanatory. There is a Help section but it is unlikely that it will be needed.
Graphics & Sounds (9)
The clips from the movie Braveheart enhance the value of the graphics tremendously. The animations in the wild and scatter symbols are also excellent. The only drawback is that these are the only symbols that are animated.
Theme and Concept (10)
The movie Braveheart won five Oscar awards and therefore this is bound to be a popular theme. The theme has been conceived and executed well. All the major protagonists in the plot appear as symbols on the reels. The other symbols are also associated with the movie. The Battle Free Games feature simulates a battle between the Scots and the English, which is a brilliant idea. The Kilt Lift feature is also in consonance with the theme.
Game Features (10)
The wild symbol doubles payouts and offers the largest fixed jackpot. Braveheart offers both a free spins bonus feature and a bonus game on the second screen. The free spins bonus feature has an innovative side game that simulates the battle between the Scots and the English and offers additional credits. This feature is triggered by the scatter symbol, which also offers scatter payouts.
Betting Options (9)
The player can manipulate only two of the betting options, which are the number of paylines and the coin denomination. The line bet varies from 0.01 to 20.00 and the total bet varies from 0.01 to 500.00.
Braveheart is connected to the Hollywood Jackpots progressive network. This is a five level jackpot that is triggered randomly. Therefore understandably the fixed jackpots do not pay out well.
