Deep Sea Treasure Slots Machine
You’ll certainly be tapping your toes to the slightly calypso sounding backing track as you play this under sea themed slot from Blueprint Gaming. This is a 20 win line video slot which looks great, with cartoon-like fish and 3D animations. While there are not too many different features, those that are included can make a big difference to your bankroll. These are wilds which add random multipliers to your wins – and a special multiplier which is applied to your entire win at the end of the free spins bonus round. Like all Blueprint slots, the setup and general game-play is extremely smooth and professional.
With coral reefs either side of the reels, and a lot of colorful fish – the underwater theme is nicely done on this slot. Below you will find the important information on how to win, how the game is set up and how it compares to other slots in this popular niche.
Playing Deep Sea Treasure
Wins listed on the pay table can be multiplied by the wild symbol. With multipliers of up to 10x applied to any win which includes a wild, the actual amount on the pay table does underestimate your actual wins! You can win up to 10,000 coins for landing 5 of the shark symbols on one of the 20 win-lines. This is the standout win, with most of the others smaller than this (in the 200 to 500 coin range before the multipliers).
When a shark is involved in a win a 3D animation where it comes out from the reels in a biting motion is triggered. Alongside this you’ll see a number 2x, 3x and so on – which is applied to that particular win. The combinations of clown fish, anchor, turtle, starfish and octopus with the cartoon shark wild will give you the biggest wins. There are also playing card symbols which make up the smaller wins.
The puffer fish is the bonus symbol. This has an entertaining animation where he puffs up and has eyes that dart around. If you hit 3 of these you will get a free spins bonus. This comes in 3 stages. First of all you pick one of the puffer fish. This will show you how many free spins you earned. The ones you did not choose will be revealed once you pick.
Next you’ll go to the free spins game which will play through to a calypso type soundtrack. Wild sharks still work here, so many of your wins will be multiplied. You can also trigger more spins during play with 3 puffer fish once again.
When your spins are over the most important part of the game kicks in. You are taken to a new screen with a big octopus on it. This creature has a number of items of treasure around it, and you get to choose one of them by clicking on it. This will reveal a multiplier which is then applied to the total of wins you accumulated during the free spins bonus. This can be up to 12x, putting the potential gain from the bonus into the very high category.
How Deep Sea Treasure Works
Beneath the coral, colorful fish and entertaining animations you will find a 20 line slot with 3 rows of symbols on each of the 5 reels. There are 20 win lines by default. While you can lower this number to 10, 5 and even 1, I recommend you stick with the full amount to give the shark multiplier wilds the best shot at making up multiple wins. You can spin from just 1c per line, up to a giant $500 a spin. As with all Blueprint Gaming slots, auto play is offered in increments of 10 spins.
What stands out about the graphics for me is that the fish and creatures on the reels have a bit of character to them. The 3D animations are only short, though they bring Deep Sea Treasure to life in a way that many other underwater slots do not really manage. The puffer fish is a particularly well done mini-animation, though the octopus treasure pick-em part of the bonus round is the stand out of the entire game.
Deep Sea Treasure – Conclusion
This game is up there with the best underwater slots for me, and is one game that I do plan on returning to at some point down the line. While there is only a single bonus game, the combination of the shark wilds and octopus multiplier at the end mean that this can be very lucrative.
