Game in Action
Secrets of Atlantis is certainly one of NetEnt’s more beautiful slots. Yes, the software developer knows how to create stunning slots and we can think of a few. But every once in a while they don’t put much of an effort into their games. Secrets of Atlantis, however, is lovely. Once you’ll start the slot, you’ll be sinking right down to the bottom of the ocean where all the action takes place.
Various sea creatures in bubbles and a handful of gems live on the reels. We won’t have to worry about generic card symbols, because those are nowhere in sight. The stunning mermaid is the wild symbol here and she can cover all reels. The soundtrack is light and serene, adding to the feel of the slot’s atmosphere.
You get 40 paylines here, which thankfully pay both ways, increasing your chances to win. Interestingly the five reels come with four rows of symbols, which means you get a total of 20 symbols than the usual 15.
Apart from winning both ways, this low variance slot also brings all symbols stacked. That further increases your chances to win, but so it is hardly surprising that wins are frequent but usually pretty small.
The first feature that will interest you is the nudge feature. Whenever the beautiful mermaid wild doesn’t cover all reels, but appears at least in part, the reels will be nudged so that she moves one position up or down. Usually she will then end up covering the whole reel.
Secondly, you will notice on the three middle reels that symbols show up with a highlighted background. When all three rows are covered with symbols with highlighted backgrounds, a new 3×4 mega symbol will replace it and spin for one free re-spin. Once it stops, you’ll be hoping that the whole symbol appears on the screen, though it can stop part ways and not yield any successful results at all. One mega symbol will turn into stacked symbols of the same kind and hopefully result into big wins of four or five of a kind, depending on what you got on reels 1 and 5.
Other Slot Machines You Might Enjoy
Generally speaking Secrets of Atlantis will tend to be more generous and play out in favour of the player. Indeed, the RTP is one of the best of any of NetEnt’s games at just over 97%. Even though it’s a low variance game, that means you’ll win frequently and enough to usually get back more than you put in.
In addition to that, the slot is quite beautiful and playable and will engage you for quite some time, especially when you first try it out. Only those who need a free spin bonus or some sort of mini game in their slots will be disappointed with this offering.
