Moby Dick is a five-reel slot game with three rows. As mentioned it has 25 paylines which are always in-play – you cannot alter the number of active paylines. This makes the game easier to play and enables you to calculate your wins quicker.
You can, however, change your stake value. The values range from €0.01 through to €2 - this may not seem like much, but your total bet value is calculated by multiplying the number of paylines (25) by your stake. So the lowest single bet value is €0.25 (€0.01 x 25), and the highest is €50 (€2.00 x 25).
The game interface is quite easy to use – it clearly shows your bet value, your account balance, and your stake. Also, there is an autoplay feature. Simply click on the A icon and you can select autoplay for 10 to 100 spins.

Moby Dick Slot has 11 different symbols in total - 10, J, Q, K, A, a tankard, an anchor, Ahab, Moby Dick, and the wild and scatters symbols. The paytable for these symbols is dynamic and it changes depending on the value of your line bet. For example, five tankards will pay 150 times the bet per line. The highest payline win possible (without considering the freeze feature) is €10,000. This is achieved by landing five wild symbols on the reels while playing with the maximum bet of €50.
We also like that at the end of a winning combination, the winning symbols are frozen. You then receive Moby Dick bonus spins which give you the chance to get more winning combinations. If you win additional combinations on the frozen spin, you gain another spin – this continues until you do not score an additional winning combo.
There is also a wild symbol which is the ship’s wheel which substitutes for any other symbol. Also, there is a scatter symbol which is detailed in the best bonus feature below.
Finally, this game has a gamble feature. After each win, you can choose to gamble and potentially double your winnings. This is a 50/50 chance and you simply have to choose either the copper or silver tankard. If you choose correctly, your winnings are doubled, if you choose incorrectly, you win nothing!
The best feature of this game is the Moby Dick free spins. Free spins are triggered by getting three or more Moby Dick free spin symbols. You can gain additional free spins during the free spins too, which means you can rack up some potentially huge chains and large jackpots.
To add to this, during the free spins, any winning symbols still freeze until the whole playing field is full – this means that it can take quite some time to cycle through all the free spins.
The free spin number is calculated as follows – four symbols = 10 free spins, five symbols = 12 free spins, six symbols = 15 free spins, and seven symbols = 20 free spins. Therefore, the maximum you can win in a single spin is 20 free spins, but as mentioned, you can trigger additional free spins whilst playing the bonus rounds.
The Moby Dick RTP is 96.15% which is on par with the industry average of between 95-96%. In terms of volatility, this is considered a medium volatility game. This strikes a balance between low and high volatility and you should receive semi-consistent wins with the occasional big win thrown in - the bigger wins are mainly provided by the free spin feature.
