EGT is a very active iGaming developer that has so far released over 160 pokies, as well as a few table games and video poker games. It continually adds new titles to its already impressive library and recently announced the release of Blue Oceans, a sea/mythology-themed pokie with crisp graphics and exciting gameplay.
The game has already become available in free mode on EGT’s official site. We played it for a while and decided to share our experience, so the players know what to expect when the game becomes available at their favourite Australian online casino.
Blue Oceans Details
As the title suggests, Blue Oceans takes place underwater amongst the colourful corals. Apart from sea creatures, the symbols include some mythology figures as well, the most rewarding of which is Neptune that serves as both the game’s wild and scatter symbol.
The game plays on a standard 5x3 layout with an adjustable number of paylines (between 1 and 20). The maximum win is a 5,000x line bet, and the RTP is estimated at 96.06%.
Blue Oceans features Jackpot Cards, a 4-level mystery jackpot game that can be triggered randomly after each play. A different card suit represents every jackpot level:
- Clubs — 1st Level
- Diamonds — 2nd level
- Hearts — 3rd level
- Spades — 4th level
Once triggered, the player will be presented with 12 face-down cards. The game is played until three matching card suits appear, and the player is then rewarded with a corresponding jackpot. The qualifying bet for triggering the jackpot game can be anywhere between one and one million credits.
Free Spins and Gamble Feature
As mentioned, Neptune serves as the game’s wild symbol and replaces all symbols in a winning combination. The wild is a scatter at the same time, so landing three Neptune symbols in a single spin will also trigger the free spins round.
The player will be awarded ten free spins and gets to choose one of the high-paying symbols as an expanding wild (Horse, Octopus, or Dolphin). Every time the wild is part of a winning combination, it will expand and cover the entire reel on which it landed. Neptune continues serving as the wild as well and rewards a 1x multiplier even when it’s not part of a win.
Blue Oceans also has a standard gambling feature. Every win can be gambled by choosing red or black. If the card drawn is of the correct colour, your win will be doubled. Players can gamble an infinite number of times during regular wins, but free spin wins can only be gambled twice.
EGT still hasn’t released a date at which we will see this game become available for real money. Nevertheless, we can expect to find Blue Oceans pokie on Australian casino sites in the coming weeks, so stay alert.
