Orca Slot from Novomatic

The first thing you’ll notice with Orca is just how good the graphics are – especially compared to the usual plain layout of Novomatic slots. The underwater setting is both around and underneath the reels, coming into view as they spin. The theme is Killer Whales (Orca is the proper name for them). There are stacked symbols, wilds and scatters and a free spins game where extra wilds are added to the reels. Unusually for Novomatic, there are 50 win lines for this game which uses a 5 by 4 reel setup.

A big payout of 50,000 coins (based on 1 coin per line bet) is possible during the base game. To win this you need to fill the entire 5 reels with Orca symbols. Fortunately, they come stacked on the reels, so you’ll often have large chunks of the reels covered (and hopefully several wins). This is the top paying of the regular symbols, and is worth 1000 coins for the full set of 5. You’ll get 200 coins for 4, 40 coins for 3 and 10 coins for just 2. Keep in mind that you’ll often be triggering multiple wins over the 50 win lines when comparing these prizes with other slots.

  • How to Win on the Orca Slot

    Next come 2 groups of 3 creatures. There are 3 penguins sitting on an iceberg, and also 3 seals. Both have animations when they create wins and both pay out a top prize of 500 coins for the full set of 5. Two colorful fish come next on the pay table at 400 coins for 5, with playing card symbols ace down to nine making up the smaller wins.

    Wild symbols are (confusingly) a south American type golden mask with the word ‘Wild’ across the top. These symbols will substitute for everything except for the scatters to create extra wins. With 50 win lines in play you will have plenty of opportunities to use these wild symbols.

    Those scatters are the tail of a whale with a sunset behind. Hit 3 of these and you’ll trigger an instant 200 coin payout, and also enter the free spins bonus game.


    Have a Whale of a Time with the Orca Bonus Game

    The main difference from the base game with the 10 free spins is the greater number of gold mask wilds on the screen. These will often combine with the stacked Orca symbols and create several wins per spin. If you hit 3 more of the ‘tail’ scatter symbols during the bonus game, then 10 more spins will be added to your total. As with many Novomatic slots you’ll need to pay attention to spot the transition back to the regular game – especially if you are using the auto play option.

    Aquatic Design and 50 Line Setup

    This slot is beautifully created and would stand out in any online casino setting. When you keep in mind that Novomatic are known for plain and simple slots – the step up with the graphics is even more impressive. The main scene shows the sunlight streaming down to an underwater setting, with various fish and some junk on the sea floor.

    When you start to play the symbols really come to life. My favorite animation is the hopping / dancing group of penguins, though you might prefer the fish or the seals. There are sound effects to match the theme too. Between spins you will hear the crashing of waves and screeching of seagulls. I also recommend you check out the jumping Orca animation. This is especially effective when you hit multiple wins with this symbol.

    The 50 lines are adjustable on this slot, though I recommend you stick with the full amount. This helps you to take advantage of both the stacked Orca symbols and the extra wilds during the free spins bonus game. You can choose your coin size from just 1c per line and up. As usual the Novomatic gamble after a win and auto play options are available.


    Overall Experience

    Even if you would not normally play Novomatic slots, Orca is worth a try. The graphics are the main draw, though behind the stunning underwater setting there is a solid and enjoyable game. The free spins bonus round is the main attraction, though there is plenty going on in the base game too. With stacked symbols, wilds and 50 win lines in the same game, you’ll know that the potential for some extra big wins is there.
