SunQuest online slot game by Microgaming is a 5 reel, colourful and retro game, based on the old classic slot machine. If you like games with “no frills” then this is probably the game for you. The backdrop is plain, with the reels taking up the majority of the screen. The reel symbols are brightly coloured and attractive, but display little relevance to the sun despite the game title! There are up to 9 active pay lines in the game.

The symbols on the SunQuest reels are mostly ones that you’d find on an old-fashioned, classic slot machine. The highest paying symbols is the gold SunQuest logo, that resembles a coin. Next is the shining diamond, the purple 7 and the gold bar. These are accompanied by the lower value symbols which are classic colourful fruit symbols: an orange, a melon, a lemon, some strawberries and cherries. The most colourful and easily distinguishable symbol on the reels is the scatter icon. 3 or more scatters landing on the reels will add to pay line wins, and the scatter symbols will pay both ways rather than just left to right, as the other symbols do.

The most exotic of all the reel symbols is the Wild, which does relate to the sun! The wild icon shows a palm tree and a beautiful sunset. This symbol substitutes all of the reel icons except for the bright scatter symbol, helping to form winning combinations across the reels.

It is a rare thing in the modern world of online slot machines, but SunQuest offers no bonus features, free spins or anything of the sort to trigger, so your aim here is simply spinning the wheels and landing the best possible winning combination.


In a refreshing way, I enjoyed playing SunQuest for its simplicity and stripped back design. There are no fancy features, no complex bonus games to figure out and it was quite enjoyable to sit back and simply spin the attractive, yet basic reels. I’m sure this greatly appeals to many, although I suspect that I might become a little tired of the lack of a thrilling free spin session over time.
