Slot Features

Trail Bonus

Dead Man's Trail Bonus

Land 3 or more ship bonus symbols to enter the Trail Bonus. This bonus includes a player pawn that moves 1 to 9 steps per turn, triggering features and adding wins all along the board. In addition, there are different tiles located all along the trail that activate different features. These are as follows.

Normal Tile

The Normal Tile simply awards the number on it as a multiple of your bet. So, if you were betting £1.00 and the Tile displays 5 on it, you would be awarded £5.00.

End Tile

The End Tile is the tile you want to avoid at all costs. Unfortunately, this will end the bonus round, and the total will be paid out to you.

Start Tile

The Start Tile triggers the special action known as reset. More on this below.

Mystery Chest

The Mystery Chest triggers any 1 of 11 special actions that are outlined below.

Special Actions


Scout adds 100x to 1000x to a random Normal Tile. You will still need to land on said Tile to get the added bonus.


This Tile multiplies the value of a Normal Tile with a 2x to 5x and repeats this 2 to 4 times.


Adds 3x to 5x to all Normal Tiles.


This collects the total summed up the value of all Normal Tiles to the total win.

Collect & Command

Adds the total summed up value of all Normal Tiles to each Normal Tile as well as adds it to the total win.


Reset replaces all End Tiles with Normal Tiles. This is a literal lifesaver in the bonus game.

Super Reset

Replaces all End Tiles with temporary Mystery Chests.

Coin Win

This gives you a random win between 25x and 50x.

Persistent Scout

This works just like Scout mentioned above. However, it acts at the end of every turn.

Persistent One-Eye

Again, this works just like the regular One-Eye Tile. However, it acts at the end of every turn,

Persistent Commander

You guessed it. This works just like the regular Commander Tile. However, it acts at the end of every turn. The range it can add is 2x to 5x.

After you land on a Normal or Temporary Tile in the Trail Feature bonus, the tile turns into an End Tile. Each Normal Tile is capped at 10,000x, and the max you can win from the bonus is 50,000x!

To note, A Scout, One-Eye or Commander can update their Persistent corresponding action by adding their revealed value to the value of an active, persistent action.

Coin Feature

You trigger the coin feature by landing coin symbols on three or more reels in the base game. You then get the value of what the coins say. Simple as that!

Dead Man’s Trail Rating

Dead Man’s Trail is definitely a mix up of a whole bunch of slots, with added points for its huge 50,000x win potential. Unfortunately, the bonus game can become a bit tedious, as moving your pawn and waiting to find out how many spaces to move can take some time. However, no two bonus games are ever the same, thanks to the many special tiles you can use. As a result, dead Man’s Trail gets a 3/5 from us here at Luck of the Spin.
