Around 71% of Earth is covered by oceans, according to calculations made by experts with significantly more time and inclination than we do. The ocean may separate landmasses and nations, but it also allows us to cruise between them. Therefore, the ocean represents not only freedom and adventure but also possible peril. Indeed, the following assortment of maritime-themed slot machines fits the bill perfectly; set sail with any of them and may your voyage be fruitful.
Poseidon Megaways, the Fortunes of Antiquity
Poseidon, the Greek deity of the sea, was highly regarded by the ancient Greeks. Triple Edge Studios’ use of him in an online slot game is indicative of the rapid evolution of this genre. Using the Megaways mechanics developed by Big Time Gaming, Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways can award up to 117,649 ways to win on a single spin. Rolling Reels are another feature that might increase your chances of winning multiple times in a single spin.
The seashell, crab, sea horse, octopus, numerous diamonds, and Poseidon’s gold mask are just some of the symbols that may be found on the underwater reels. The trident coin is the wild symbol, while the GOLD icons are the scatters. If you get four scatters, you’ll get 12 free games. Your initial win multiplier in Rolling Reels will be 1, and it will rise by 1 with each new spin.
This game has four progressive jackpots, each of which can be won at random after any spin. At that time, you can choose twelve tokens at random from a stack. The back of every token displays the current jackpot. The jackpot is awarded when three identical tokens are located, and it can be as much as five thousand times the initial wager.
Although Microgaming published Ariana in 2015, it remains a popular sea-themed slot game. The visuals are uncomplicated and unpretentious, with a calm sea floor image in the background and five semi-transparent reels in the foreground.
Tens, Jacks, Queens, Kings, and Aces make up the lower value symbols, while a mermaid named Ariana, a sunken treasure trove, an underwater plant, and other aquatic imagery make up the higher value symbols. Except for Ariana, who appears on all reels, the higher-value symbols appear stacked only on the first reel. A purple starfish serves as a scatter and the Ariana Grande logo serves as a wild.
A full stack of symbols on the first reel will cause that symbol’s higher-value counterpart to extend on the remaining reels when playing the base game. If you manage to get three or more scatter symbols, you will enter a bonus round where you will be awarded 15 free games. During this round, the wild symbol will appear stacked on reel one, and landing three or more scatters will award additional free spins.
After hanging out with a mermaid and a Greek god, it’s time to meet a pirate. iSoftbet’s Sea of Riches will be released in 2021 and is set on a beach with the deep blue ocean as a backdrop.
The game board is a 6×6 grid, and the coins and gems are symbols. There are 12 possible coin designs and 4 gem colors. Treasure maps in bottles and wild symbols are also possible. A pirate can be seen to the left of the game’s primary grid. A Treasure Map and a Compass are displayed in a frame on the right.
In order to win, you must align five or more symbols in a row. Then the Compass will reflect those symbols. When the Compass is full of winning clusters, the pirate will unleash his cannons, send in his parrots, or even toss in a bottle of rum to celebrate. Each modifier will either add or subtract symbols from play, increasing your chances of victory.
The Treasure Map will be completed with each bottle symbol you find. It’s a ‘level up’ if you complete the map. Each of the four attainable levels brings forth a different Wild ship: the Wild Kraken, Wild Storm, Wild Whale, and Wild Ghostship.
