Play Secrets of Atlantis Slot early!

Betsafe Casino has already added the next upcoming slot from release from NetEnt titled Secrets of Atlantis, with an official release date of the 24th August 2016,  if you are looking to check out this brand new slot before this date then make sure to head over to Betsafe Casino where you can play this slot for play or real money.

Secrets of Atlantis is an underwater themed slot from NetEnt which uses a slightly larger than normal 5×4 reel set with 40 fixed paylines with pay both ways functionality, there is no special bonus round in this slot, instead there are numerous special features that can occur in the base game which includes features such as Nudging Wilds, Highlight Feature, Colossal Symbols Re-Spins.

It’s worth noting that the minimum bet is just 20 credits which pays for the 40 active paylines on this slot, so take that into consideration whilst looking through the paytables.

The reels feature heavily stacked symbols including some high paying premium symbols such as the Golden Pearl symbols which mean wins tend to be less frequent but higher in value when several blocks of matching symbols land on the reels, coupled with the extra features in the base which will assist in creating better and more frequent wins.

If you are a fan of online slots such as Twin Spin then Secrets of Atlantis may well appeal, with a lack of a main bonus round to be aiming for, but a larger chance of some big base game hits.

Secrets of Atlantis slot – Special Features

There are several interesting features which can occur during the base game which can help create wins, all of these are summarised below.

Nudging Wilds

There are stacked wilds present on the middle reels in the form of a large Mermaid symbol, when these land even partially on the reels they will be nudged either up or down to cover the entire reel in wild symbols, this Nudging Wild feature can also occur when the Colossal Symbols feature is active too, nudging up or down 3 reels of wild symbols on reels 2, 3, 4.

Highlight Feature

On the middle 3 reels of the slot, you will notice there are some special Highlighted Symbols on the reels (white background) if the stacks of these symbols land to cover the middle reels entirely then this will trigger a Colossal Symbol Respin.

Colossal Symbol Respin

The Colossal Symbol re-spin feature converts the middle reels into 1 giant reel, this contains enlarged symbols (3×4) including the special wild Mermaids, the reels will respin and pays will occur from left to right or right to left if any combinations are created on the reels, and as noted earlier if the special Wild symbol lands during the Colossal re-spin it will also nudge to cover the entire middle Colossal reel.

Overall Opinions

Secrets of Atlantis is not one of our favourite slots from recent NetEnt releases, we much preferred the exclusive Wild Wild West slot from NetEnt which is also available at Betsafe Casino, with a lack of a main bonus round to aim for we felt that the slot felt slightly underwhelming whilst playing, although there is definitely some excitement to be had when the Colossal Re-spins feature occurs.

With an RTP (Return to Player) of 97.1% you are sure to get some decent playtime, but remember that this slot can be quite streaky in terms of the wins, so bet accordingly.

During playtesting we didn’t manage to score any wins over 100x stake, but they are certainly attainable with multiple 5 of a kind wins possible on 40 paylines.
