ABOUT SECRETS OF ATLANTIS SLOTS
The lure of the deep blue sea and the mysteries it hides is certainly a powerful thing, and NetEnt helps tickle our imagination with their newest release. Secrets of Atlantis is a 5 reel, 40 payline slot that offers a somewhat different take on the usual formula. The game pays both left to right and right to left, and shows off relatively unique bonus features. The lack of Scatters is noticeable in Secrets of Atlantis, but it does not harm the game one bit.
The storyline takes place in the underwater city of Atlantis, with ancient Greek ruins falling apart beneath the waves, as a whimsical, calm tune plays in the background, making you feel like a true underwater explorer. The symbols all fit into the game’s theme, and you can see a medusa, a turtle, a crab, different coloured gemstones and an open oyster all present as standard icons. Secrets of Atlantis also has Wilds, which look like mermaids.
HOW TO PLAY
The game features a standard 5 reel setup, and it does not stray too far from that tradition. Before the slot starts spinning, you are given the option to adjust your bet level and coin value, which gives you a range from $0.20 up to $200 each spin. Alternatively, make use of the detailed Autoplay option NetEnt features in all of its new releases.
Apart from being overtly stiff, Wilds in this game serve as a full-reel symbol that complete any needed combination. The special thing about Wilds in Secrets of Atlantis is that the symbol will nudge itself up or down even if it is partially on the reel. As such, Wilds can more or less guarantee a win each time they appear on the game screen.
While the game shows off a fun Wild, it also offers a different set of special features than most other games. With the Colossal Symbol re-spin, it certainly has lots of potential to allow lucky players to score big when that jackpot rolls around.
The slot’s free spin comes from the Colossal Symbol. At any given time, the game will highlight reels 2, 3 and 4. If all three are highlighted at the same time, they will create a single, massive icon that will spread across all three reels, and then break into smaller versions of that same symbol. This makes sure that your free spin is usually very profitable – an easy way to get a mega win with a bit of luck.
The largest win of the game comes from the oyster symbol, which pays x400 times your stake. As such, playing at the maximum bet level and coin value, the jackpot will score you $80,000 if you manage to match 5 of them on the reels.
SECRETS OF ATLANTIS ON MOBILE
While the gameplay is preserved and remains functionally the same, the slot suffers in terms of graphical fidelity from the lack of power mobile devices and tablets bring.
The graphics for Secrets of Atlantis are very serviceable, and animations help a lot in making it work. But mobile versions do away with most of the animations, and it does harm the overall experience.
