Gameplay and Visuals
The game has five reels on three rows and offers up to 25 pay lines. The layout has been designed to look like an old-style sea chart, and it really adds to the atmosphere of the game. This is a low volatility game that offers a Return to Player ratio of 98.6%, which gives the chance of some big wins, although smaller wins may be harder to come by. However, when you do land a win, it should be for a larger amount.
The most you can stake on a single spin with all pay lines active is $250 with the minimum being 1p per pay line, or 25c if all pay lines are selected. There is no progressive jackpot on this game, and the most you can win is 670x your unit stake, giving a total jackpot for a $250 spin of $167,500 or 167.50 for the minimum bet of 25c.
Getting a win is as straightforward as landing three identical symbols, with the game including eight standards and two bonus symbols. The symbols in this game are represented by the kind of creatures you would expect to find in an old-fashioned sea-faring adventure, including a mermaid, large and small sea serpents, a sea turtle, a giant squid and a lobster.
The large sea serpent is the wild symbol and will substitute all other symbols on the reels to form a winning combination, except for the bonus symbol. The game also offers the player the chance to stack wild symbols for bigger wins, and these stacking wild icons are represented by a ship or green monster that only lands on reels 2,3 and 4.
The compass symbol is the bonus symbol and landing three or more of these on a pay line will trigger the free spins feature, and you will receive ten free goes for three compass symbols, 20 for 4 and 50 if you land all five.
This is the only bonus feature contained within the game, although what it lacks in bonus features, you can be sure that you will gain some big wins if you are fortunate enough to land five scatters and receive the 50 free spins.
