Under The Sea Slots

Under-The-SeaBased on the many slot machines I’ve tried so far, the ones that always end up looking great are the titles that have an underwater theme. Under The Sea is one of those modern slot machines with a focus on the life of the ocean, throwing in a mermaid, a sunken shin and a treasure, to make sure you’re going to enjoy it. It also humanizes the various creatures that make appearances in it, making them characters that smile, instead of regular fish without a personality.

BetSoft is the developer behind this game, which has 5 reels and 30 bet lines inside. With prizes that reach $16,000, it’s one of their better modern games, plus they’ve placed inside features like scatters or wilds, with multipliers and free spins added for good measure.

Features of Under The Sea

It’s always nice to see a game designed by BetSoft, especially if it’s a recent title. This one fits the description and it has a good collection of special symbols, with the wild with high multipliers being my favorite of the lot.

Speaking of the wild, you will recognize it in the symbol with the Pearl. A Pearl is capable of taking the place of another fish or a mermaid, if on its payline there are already a couple of matching symbols. The Pearl substitutes for the missing symbol and a combination is formed. Each wild that contributes to a combination brings with it a multiplier which doubles the amount won. Get multiple wilds contributing to it, and you get even bigger multipliers. Two wilds will give the combo a 4x multiplier, while three wilds will give it an 8x multiplier. It should apply to the top jackpot as well, so it can go as high as $16,000, instead of the original $2,000. You can’t get the wild to substitute for the bonus or scatter symbols, but it works for all the others.

The Treasure Chest is a classic symbol by now, especially when it is used in a game that has some sort of sunken ship among its symbols or graphics. The game needs just three of these Treasure Chests to appear, and that should be enough to get you inside the bonus game. Find the treasure during the game that follows and you will be rewarded handsomely.

Free Games Feature

A Sunken Ship is something you can generally expect in underwater themed slots, a bit of an obsession for treasure hunters and in this case it is used as the scatter. Its role is mostly that of a trigger for the free spins round, so when you see 3 to 5 ships in the game, you know that you will receive 8 to 15 free games. Each free game has a 2x multiplier for its winning combinations.

Betting options and jackpots

Since most BetSoft 3D Slots have the same number of paylines, you pretty much know in advance how the betting system will look like. In this game, like in all the others, the 30 paylines can be activated completely or partially, and the player has the liberty to decide the number of coins and their value. The line wager goes up to $5, where 5 coins of $1 would be used. Add it all up, and you get a $150 maximum wager per spin.

Normally, the slot has a top jackpot that is worth about 400 times the line bet, meaning a maximum of $2,000. However, the wild symbol has a multiplier that can be used multiple times. Get three wilds in a top jackpot combo, and the result is a 8x multiplier applied, and a prize that is now worth $16,000.

Design and symbols

Under The Sea is full of life, of the underwater variety. You get a mermaid as well in the picture, while all the other symbols are different types of fish and other related images. The fish don’t look like the ones you’re used to seeing, each one with its own personality instead, smiling or grinning at you. The characters look like they were taken out of Nemo, the animation movie, or another similar cartoon. It’s a gorgeous design, but then again that’s usually true about all underwater themed slots.

Symbols: Pearl (wild), Ship (scatter, 60x), Treasure Chest (bonus), Mermaid (400x), Green Fish (300x), Yellow Fish (200x), Blue Fish (100x), Orange Fish (50x), Brown Fish (25x) and Shark (25x).


Is It Worth Playing?

With big multipliers and prizes above average for BetSoft, plus a fantastic design and theme choice, Under The Sea should be a game that you don’t want to miss out on. If you enjoy 3D slots and you’re used to the smaller payout potential, this game is better in that regard.

This Under The Sea slot is offered by all online casinos with BetSoft software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
