The music reminds you of the fun platform computer video games of times gone by, while the sound effects are highly evocative and transport players to the ethereal underwater world.
The colourful fish make fun sounds when you win a payout, including chirps and laughs, while the trumpet sounds to congratulate players when they hit a big win. The maximum payout in Aquarium is 5,000 coins for lucky players who hit the right combination of 5 scattered seahorses on the reels.
