Aquatic Treasures™ Online Slot
The world of online slots in Canada is one that encompasses a massive variety of themes, including everything from science fiction and fantasy to adventure, movies, food and time travel. Animals continue to be a popular selection, with those that dwell in the ocean often proving to be a popular choice. In collaboration with Gold Coin Studios, Microgaming have created an utterly charming title called Aquatic Treasures™, and instead of featuring a biosphere of different underwater animals, the game focusses more on the treasure aspect. Don’t worry, though, there is still a friendly dolphin to get acquainted with, which also has the power to trigger some exciting features. Along with a very impressive collection of other online slots and casino games, Aquatic Treasures™ is available to play at JackpotCity, whether on PC, laptop, smartphone or tablet. In this review, we take a closer look at what to expect when playing this delightful game.
Aquatic Treasures™ plays out over a standard online slots game format, with 3 rows of 5 reels, and 20 fixed paylines. While many online casino games have their various buttons on the bottom of the screen, Aquatic Treasures has all of it on the right-hand side, which actually does a great job of opening up the field of vision and the playing space. These buttons include those for spinning the reels, as well as autoplay. The latter is something we suggest making use of if you’d like to set the reels to spin themselves, so that you can kick back and enjoy the show. Ordinarily, we prefer to be a part of the action at all times, but given that the in-game features of this game aren’t in any way interactive, we enjoyed making use of it. It is also here where one can increase and/or decrease their bet sizes, with a range that extends from 0.20 credits and goes all the way up to 100. This makes the game a great choice for a wide range of player types, whether they’re seasoned online slots aficionados or new to the world of online and mobile casino games.
A Treasure Trove of Symbols
As mentioned above, you won’t find a massive variety of different aquatic creatures across the reels of this online slot, but instead the higher-value symbols are represented by different, uncut gemstones in shades of blue, green and purple. On the other side of the spectrum are the lower-value symbols, which are denoted by the standard card royals A, K, Q, J and 10. As far as special in-game features are concerned, this game boasts a handful of them, all of which we will take a look at in more detail in the paragraph below.
As with most online slots out there, Aquatic Treasures™ boasts two special symbols, namely a Wild and a Scatter. Interestingly, while the Wild usually substitutes for all other symbols except the Scatter, in this game, it is able to take its place. This Wild is represented by the aforementioned friendly dolphin. Not only does it have the power to take the place of other symbols, it will also expand to cover an entire reel when it lands. Every adjacent Wild that lands thereafter will see that image of the dolphin grow larger until – hopefully – it covers a 3x3 space on the grid – the Wild can only land on reels 2, 3 and 4. The Scatter is represented by two golden dolphins swimming in a swirl, from nose to tail, with a shimmering pearl between them. When at least 3 of this symbol land, they will trigger a round of Free Spins, and instead of more Scatters triggering more Free Spins, they will increase the amount of extra bonus credits earned.
Last, but definitely not least, is the Double Up feature. This works much the same as the Gamble feature found in plenty of other online casino games. Put simply, after a winning spin, players can choose to try and double their winnings by guessing whether or not a flipped coin will land on tails or heads. If they guess correctly, whatever they won on that spin will be doubled. One doesn’t need to take the chance if they choose not to, but having the option adds an extra fun twist.
