Net Entertainment’s Secrets of Atlantis slot is – like many other similarly-themed games – based on an underwater world of mermaids, treasures, and of course, the mythical city itself. With bubble protected symbols, a deep blue coloration and gorgeous graphics, the game really dives deep to deliver the kind of gameplay experience you would expect from an Atlantean slot.
Generic might be the word best used to describe the audio and visual experience of this game. A tranquil track plays in the background. Shades of blue are spread throughout the reels and underwater kingdom backdrop, and turtles, jellyfish, and crabs bob on the reels, all which flash when they feature in a win. They are all part and parcel of your typical Atlantean-themed slot, though. This is standard fare for NetEnt.
The Look and Feel of Secrets of Atlantis
It may not look like it, but there are 40 paylines floating across the 5 reels of this game. You won’t get to tinker with any of them, but NetEnt does cut you some slack. They will allow you to wager on just 20 of them but play with all forty. This two-for-one deal on paylines means that you will get to play with all 40 for as little as $0.20 per spin. If you wish to push the boat (no pun intended) you can whack down stakes worth a cool $200 a game here.
Graphics and Gameplay
As with any major slot, players are going to need to land 3 identical symbols on the reels to win prizes. The jellyfish, turtle and crab symbols can deliver small-scale wins, but the gemstones are worth much larger prizes. The oyster-bearing pearl is the way to go here, with the symbol capable of delivering wins worth up to 400x your line bet.
Secrets of Atlantis Slot Bonus Features
Mermaid wilds can make all the difference in the Secrets of Atlantis slot. They can expand to cover whole reels and replace all other icons. Should a wild be only partially in view, a nudge feature may or may not (it is random) knock it down into view to assist you in landing a win.
Keep an eye out for lighter-colored water. These highlighted reels can appear randomly on the second, third and fourth reels. If they do show up, they may dish out a colossal symbol, followed by a re-spin to help you land a win. This 3×4 symbol could be any icons at all, and it is possible that a colossal nudge may randomly help you land that full giant icon if it is only partially in view.
