Time for a treasure hunt
Playson may be the new kid on the block in relative terms and may not operate on the same scale as some of the big hitters in the world of pokies, but time and time again it manages to make waves - and it has done it again. The idea of an undersea treasure hunt is always going to be a winner and you could be too with a pokie that is big on fun, creating oceans of entertainment across five reels and nine paylines.
Play on your laptop or PC, or give the mobile version a try on your tablet or phone. Whichever way you choose to play, there will be no shortage of splashing entertainment, although you might just feel like you have descended onto the set of SpongeBob SquarePants! Don’t worry, however, as a Krabby Patty might just make the perfect reel-time snack.
Free spins anyone?
Apart from the light-hearted entertainment value, the main attraction for many Aquatica fans are the free spins on offer if three pearl-holding oyster shells arrive anywhere on the visible reels. The feature offers the chance to win as many as 50 free spins, although the game is volatile and you should be on your guard. To start with, you will get 25 free spins for your first three pearls; will them to roll in once more during the feature and you will get the same again.
Take the plunge and double up
There is also the chance to double wins thanks to the gamble feature offered after each winning spin, but are you brave enough to take the plunge? All you have to do is guess the right colour of a card before it is shown. You will also need to be on the look-out for those lucky submarines. Get five on a payline and a bumper payout will be on its way.
The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine may have had the fun factor but it fell short on the winning potential - unlike Aquatica.
Uncomplicated undersea entertainment
Another major attraction of Aquatica is its sheer simplicity. You don’t have to worry about complex bonus features and multi-level games, making it ideal if you like pokies that don’t need Mensa membership to qualify for a win. The imagery is equally light-hearted, with cartoon-type fish, aquatic creatures and more colour than you would find on the Great Barrier Reef!
Those tropical fish would be hiding their faces in their fins if they could see this bombardment of eye-popping pinks, yellows and purples. The soothing soundtrack proves a pleasant antidote to the visual party on the screen, although it does take a bit of imagination to work out how the Mexican-sounding trumpets fit in!
