The underwater world has proved itself to be a great source of inspiration in the making of slot games. Adding another game to the bunch is NetEnt with their release of Ocean’s Treasure, a 5 reel slot, with 3 rows and 15 paylines. With an amazing underwater design and an interesting set of features that make the game a whole lot more exciting, the game sounds quite promising and should be a lot of fun.
The underwater theme is no stranger to the slot industry and players have witnessed just about everything by now. There have been some pretty good releases, but thanks to the popularity the theme has gained by now, providers seem to lack originality. They have to find a way to make their release something different, which is hard when there are so many out there with the same theme.
The design of the game is amazing and shows that the designers paid attention to detail. The background is the ocean with an underwater stone town. The reels are placed right in the middle and are guarded by two mermen. Tiny fish can also be seen, swimming around in the ocean waters.
The soundtrack is kind of majestic but also makes the player focus on the game. There are also thunder sound effects that contribute to the theme a lot. The symbols of the game are well-designed and include the regular royals as the lowest paying symbols. The higher-paying ones include compasses, precious stones, interesting keys, and messages in bottles. The game features a trident symbol as the regular wild and goddess Sigyn as the stacked wild. The scatter symbol is represented by a treasure chest.
The game also has very good gameplay and there is something for all types of players and betters out there. The betting range is quite diverse with the minimum bet set at 0,15 and the maximum at 300 coins per spin. The payouts will not disappoint either and they go as high as 18,000x the stake in a single free spin. The game’s volatility is set at medium to high and considering that the 95,99% RTP could have been set at a bit higher, but it is acceptable.
The features of the game are not numbered but the ones that are there promise to deliver some great opportunities to take home a big win. As before mentioned, the game has two kinds of wild symbols and both have the same assignment, which is to replace all other symbols except for the scatter.
The game also offers a Free Spins feature that is triggered when the scatter symbol appears on reels 1, 3, and 5. The player is then awarded with 10 free spins and every time a regular wild lands on the reels, the player is awarded an additional 2 free spins. Up to 102 free spins can be won this way.
The Free Spins feature also has 5 levels that come with x3, x5, x7, x9 or x12 multipliers, depending on the level the player is on. Above the reels is the Kraken guarding a Level Meter that gets filled by half every time a regular wild lands on the reels. When the player reaches the 5th level the Kraken awards them with a 100 times the stake prize.
This is an unusual trip to an underwater town that is definitely worth taking. The designers made the theme into a great game, with a very detailed background and well-designed symbols. The game has an impressive set of features that help score a bigger win much easier. The payouts are satisfying and can be very surprising at times, so your fins on and let’s find a treasure.
