Check Out NetEnt’s Newest Creation Secrets of Atlantis Slot
NetEnt has announced the release of yet another new video slot game to enrich their collection, called Secrets of Atlantis. As you already guess the game theme used for their latest slot can be found in the many legends about the lost city of Atlantis and all of its glory and riches.
The first detail you will notice in this game is that the reels are set on the ocean floor, right at the heart of Atlantis. You have been brought there by the beautiful mermaid, which is also the wild symbol in this game.
The rest of the symbols include jelly fish, crabs, sea turtles and the precious gemstones, which along with the seashell have the highest payout. Since the mermaid is the main symbol of the game it is expected to see some extra functions attached to it. Here the Mermaid has a Nudging Wild function, meaning that it will nudge horizontally or vertically and will cover the entire landing reel.
Also players will notice that wins in Secrets of Atlantis are formed both ways, left to right and right to left. Considering the fact that there are 40 active pay lines in total, going over 5 reels and 4 rows, this function alone can award some decent payouts. Also as you spin the reels you will notice that the symbols can also come stacked across the reels, which further enhances the importance of the both ways win design.
The jewel of the game however is the Colossal Symbols re-spin feature, along with the Highlighted symbols feature. This two features function as one, because the highlighted symbols actually trigger the Colossal Symbol re-spin feature, once they land in full length over the 3 central reels.
As the highlighted symbols are removed one giant colossal symbol is put in their place and the rest of the reels re-spun once. The re-spins continue until one winning spin is won. This may not seem like much, but the wild symbol can also land as a colossal symbol and will nudge to cover the entire central reels. This way a big payout is almost guaranteed.
What We love
We love the overall design that is used on Secrets of Atlantis, combined with all of the bonus features. This makes the game interesting and challenging to play, as you progress one step at a time to the point where all of the features land perfectly in one spin and award a big payout.
Everything is perfect, from the 40 active pay lines, the both ways win design, the nudging wild up to the colossal symbol re-spin feature.
What we Do not Like
We didn’t find anything that really didn’t fit our taste, so we think Secrets of Atlantis is just perfectly designed the way it is.
Most definitely. Playing Secrets of Atlantis can be very fun and challenging, but also very profitable at the same time. The maximum possible payout of 1,600 x total bet seems lower than on some other NetEnt slots, but should be easier to achieve in one perfect spin.
We can’t wait for that spin to land on our screen soon.
