Under the Sea by Betsoft – Slot Machine Review
Under the Sea is one of the beautiful slot machines from Betsoft’s collection, and what better theme to implement in such a fashion, than one that deals with the ocean and its many gorgeous creatures. It’s a fun game, with animated symbols and beautiful mermaids, a perfect recipe for a good time.
You might not be impressed with the game’s rewards at first, but take into account the possible multipliers coming both from wilds and free spins, and up to $32,000 could be up for grabs on just one line. Bonus games are also available, and they can add some extra winnings to the total. The usual 30 lines over 5 reels are available, a system that’s been used in a lot of Betsoft games.
While you get 30 active lines from the game, you’re not required to use them all if you don’t want to. It’s your decision, and if you want to reduce the amount you wager, this is one of the areas where you can make changes. Another is in the number of coins that will go to each active lines, or in their value. You get up to 5 coins per line, and their highest value is $1 for each. The complete range for the game’s bets is $0.01 to $150.
Under the Sea Jackpot
Several multipliers are involved, so while a single winning combination might offer only $2,000 in the base game, get some wilds and the free spins involved, and as much as $32,000 could be yours on just one line.
It’s one of the slot machines where I’m OK with the Return to Player percentage as well, being announced at 95.4% by Betsoft. Since a lot of their games do a lot worse, it’s one area that I always pay attention to. In this case, I’d say it’s an adequate number, not a great one.
It might not be the sort of slot machine where innovation is strong, but the quality of the features is undeniable, especially once you take a look at the sort of multipliers that can get involved.
Pearl Wild Symbols
With the exception of the scatter or bonus symbols, all others can use the Pearl Wild in their combinations. The symbol will be a substitute for other types of symbols needed in its present landing position. Add to this the fact that one wild gives you a 2x multiplier, two wilds apply one of 4x, while three wilds on the same line will increase the prize by 8x.
A Ship icon will be your scatter in Under the Sea, and it’s going to be the way to the free spins, provided that you land at least three. A small cash prize will come even in exchange for just two scattered Ships though.
The number of Ship scatters determines whether you get 8, 12 or 15 free spins. What’s common for all of them is the 2x multiplier that’s applied to all wins.
The bonus feature isn’t missing either, and it’s a part of the slot that you can reach with help from special Treasure Chest symbols. You need only three, in order to get the feature. The mission is to find the treasure and to get paid as a result.
3D graphics are part of the design in Under the Sea, and their quality is high enough to make this an appealing slot for pretty much everyone. The Slots3 games will all have these high-quality symbols, though others offer a lot more animations and even cut-scenes. Here, you get symbols which will become animated when they’re involved in winning combinations.
Theme wise, you get the ocean and its creatures. A Mermaid is one of the symbols that appear, along with sharks or fish which are smiling at you. Pearls, sunken ships and treasure chests will be used for the feature symbols.
I think you have plenty to enjoy in Under the Sea, a game with high-end graphics, big multipliers and a decent Return to Player.
