Highlander Slot Review

Released: December 2017

The Highlander slots game can be found at Microgaming casinos. Microgaming as a standard now publish the slots house edge information of all their games at any online casino that holds a UKGC license (this is a requirement for all UKGC licensed casinos. As such we can say that the House Edge of Highlander is 3.00%. When playing at any venue that does not hold a UKGC license and does not specifically publish the Return to Player information for their game, this information should be used as a guideline only as we cannot confirm whether or not this game is configurable.

There can be only one. Only the strongest will survive. Do you have what it takes?

Highlander is a 5 reel game that does not use standard paylines, Instead any three or more matching symbols in any position on adjacent reels starting from the left side of the reels constitutes a win. This is equivalent to 243 standard paylines.

The ‘Highlander Logo’ symbol is Wild.

There are three bonus features when playing Highlander. The first bonus feature is activated when you receive two of the ‘MacLeod Sword Hilt’ scatter symbol anywhere on the reels. When this happens the MacLeod Sword Hilt scatter symbols will be transformed into Wild symbols for the spin.

The second bonus feature is triggered when you receive three or more of the MacLeod Sword Hilt scatter symbol anywhere on the reels. When this happens you will be awarded 10 free spins.

The third bonus feature is triggered randomly. When this happens lightning will strike the reels turning a random number of symbols into Highlander Logo Wild symbols.


With a theme as rich as the Highlander franchise, it does feel like Microgaming could have done a little more to bring this game alive with some features that actually tie in with the movies, but putting this aside the game has an attractive House Edge and offers a fair selection of bonus features. Not Microgaming’s best effort, but still not a bad choice.
