The features in Aquatic Treasures include expanding wilds, scatter wins. There are also free spins with more wilds and a coin gamble. The Double UP lets you increase your wins by two times. The game revolves around dolphins.
The game is set underwater in the ocean. The background shows the light turquoise ocean bottom with bubbles. The symbols simply spin from above without any frames. You can see gems in different colours and shapes and card symbols in an Art Deco font.
The star in the slot is the friendly-looking dolphin. The dolphin can cover one or more reels and can take more of the screen. There are gold dolphins encircling a white globe scatters.
The soundtrack is atmospheric, unobtrusive and mixed with water bubble sounds. The free spins play with more dynamic music. The images are precise, clear and look great. The menu is on the right of the grid positioned vertically.
Aquatic Treasures uses 10 symbols, of which 8 are paying ones, 1 scatter and 1 wild. The card royals are the lowest paying ones. The glowing gems in green, blue and purple are the premium symbols. Their payouts are from 4 to 7.5 times the bet for 5 of a kind. The most rewarding of all is the purple gem and it is the only one that pays for 2 symbols.
The star of the game is the dolphin, which is the wild symbol. The dolphin wild substitutes for all symbols even for scatters and appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 only.
To form wins you need 2, 3 or more of a kind symbols to land on a pay-line and adjacent reels starting from the first one.
When the dolphin wildlands, it expands to cover its reel fully. When you get 2 or more dolphins on adjacent reels, they expand and merge forming a large image of a dolphin. This can ensure one or more pay-line wins. This is highly likely since the wild substitutes for all symbols even for scatters.
The scatter is the image of 2 golden dolphins encircling a white globe. This symbol lands on all reels. Hitting 3 scatters on reels 1, 2 and 3 on the same spin activates the free spins. Getting 3, 4 or 5 scatters gives you 8 Free Spins and a scatter payout of 2, 5 or 25 times your bet respectively. During free spins, you will benefit from extra wilds. You can also retrigger the free games.
The last extra in Aquatic Treasures is the Gamble Option, called Double Up. It is pretty simple to play: you pick heads or tails on the Gold Coin Studio emblem. If you are lucky, your staked sum will be doubled, if not, you will lose it. You can use this gamble feature after each base game win or at the end of free spin once per win.
If you like the theme of the slot you can try it for free and get a taste of what is like. However, the top payout of 357.25x stake may not be enough for many players. Aquatic Treasures is more suitable for newbies and ordinary punters. Give it a try and see for yourself!
