The developers of the Deep Sea Treasure online video slot were obviously inspired by the much loved genre of animated animal films, like Finding Nemo and Shark Tale, when creating this five-reel offering.
The style of the graphics and animation could easily have been taken straight out of a Disney, Pixar or DreamWorks production, with symbols like the clownfish, baby turtle, puffer fish, and shark clearly bearing uncanny resemblances to Nemo, Squirt, Bloat, and Bruce from “Finding Nemo”.
Other symbols to be found on the ocean floor, which is where the Deep Sea Treasure reels are situated, include a yellow starfish, a pink octopus, a ship’s anchor, and the standard high-ranking playing card symbols.
The Deep Sea Treasure reels have 20 paylines for players to wager on and are set amongst a colourful array of coral and other aquatic plants, with sunlight streaming down from above the surface of the water.
Wager Limits and Jackpots on Offer
Deep Sea Treasure online video slot coin values start at just 0.01 credits but players may wager up to a maximum of 500.00 credits per spin, if they select the max coin value and enable all 20 paylines.
Up for the taking in the Deep Sea Treasure slot is a top jackpot of 500 times the wager. This top prize is paid out when five shark symbols appear together on an active payline.
The Shark and the Puffer Fish are Special
The Bruce-like shark mentioned earlier plays the role of the wild symbol in the Deep Sea Treasure slot. As such, the toothy-grinned beast is able to take the place of any other symbol except the scatter to help make up winning combinations.
In addition, the Deep Sea Treasure wild symbol comes with a multiplier of up to 5x and remains in play during free spins.
The other special symbol in the Deep Sea Treasure slot is the puffer fish, who looks innocuous enough he forms part of a win or activates free spins. When this happens, the puffer fish scatter does his party trick of blowing up like a spiky balloon.
The Puffer Fish Pick-Em Feature
At least three puffer fish symbols must be landed anywhere on the Deep Sea Treasure reels in order for the pokie game’s free spins bonus to be activated. But, before, Deep Sea Treasure players can claim their free spins, they must choose from an array of fish presented to them on a new screen. Their selection will determine the number of free spins – which may be as many as 50 – awarded them.
Thereafter, Deep Sea Treasure players play through their free spins until they have run out. But the bonus round does not end here – players must then choose one of several deep sea objects offered to them in order to obtain a mystery multiplier for their free spins winnings.
Note that players do not have to enable all 20 paylines in order to qualify for this Deep Sea Treasure bonus but that playing fewer lines will diminish the amount of benefit that can be drawn from it.
