Aquanauts Review

Slot machine players have looked for treasures in countless places before, including at the bottom of the ocean, so some of the elements present in Aquanauts are not entirely unique. However, with divers as the main characters, in this case, there is a unique element that could get the attention of players. The slot was created by Games Global (acquired Microgaming’s platform recently) and Alchemy Gaming, being an exclusive for the former company’s platform.

Aquanauts gets a setup with 5×5 reels, on which you will find 3,125 ways to win. It’s got huge potential, of up to 50,000x the stake, along with a proper RTP of 96.26%, but the volatility is obviously high. The features to mention, include the Rolling Reels, wilds, free spins, and the Upsizer.

Betting and Prizes

Your bets in Aquanauts start from a RM0.30 minimum and could be increased to reach a max value of RM21.

Aquanauts is one of those few slot machines that go beyond what’s expected, at least in terms of what you can win while playing it. A top jackpot of 50,000x the stake is mentioned as a possibility, though I wouldn’t hold my breath trying to win that much. Highly volatile, this slot machine pays back to players 96.46% of what’s wagered, if we go by its expected lifetime RTP.

Aquanauts Game Features

First, you form combinations via ways to win, landing 3 or more symbols on adjacent reels, left to right. Next, the cascading reels mechanic triggers, removing the symbols that were winners, and allowing new ones to drop in available positions. If new wins come next, then the rolls continue to trigger as well. What’s interesting here, is that each roll brings with it a multiplier boost by 1x. The more rolls you get, the bigger the multiplier, but it will reset at the end of the round.

Echo Rolls are random, and they will fill all available positions (as a result of a win) with a single type of symbol, either wild or regular. This brings you a win.

The W logo serves as the wild, so you’re going to get some help from it when forming new combinations. It’s also possible to have 5 wilds on as many reels, so they form their own combinations and pay 10x the stake then.

As for the main feature, it offers 8 free spins, provided that you have 3 triggering scatters in view. A Wheel spins first, to decide what kind of modifiers are included (multipliers, Echo Rolls, more free spins). The Upsizer option allows you to buy better modifiers for the upcoming free spins.

Theme & Design

It’s a beautiful game, with 50s-style comic book images used for many of its major symbols. There are the divers as major symbols, along with sharks, submarines, an octopus, squids, and more. A decent design, overall.

Conclusion

Aquanauts looks like a great game for you to check out, a slot machine that has the graphics, features, and top payouts required to make it interesting.
