It's no secret that NetEnt continuously crank out great games and after the massively successful Theme Park Tickets of Fortune slot came out just a couple of weeks ago, we're previewing the ultimate underwater slot that is Secrets of Atlantis. Launching at all good NetEnt casinos on the 24th of August, there's plenty to look forward to. The five reels and 40 paylines deliver plenty of wins and features too. There are Nudge Wilds, re-spins, a highlight feature – delivering speed and entertainment in buckets. We know we're excited, are you?
The Undying Theme Of Atlantis
What's up with ancient lost civilizations and NetEnt using them as inspiration for their mobile slots? Just think of Gonzo's Quest, a slot that is based on looking for the lost civilization of El Dorado. Now, Atlantis is the next on the cards of this brilliant software developer. More specifically, the Secrets of Atlantis mobile slot that's being released on the 24th of August, still a while away, but plenty of time to review the game thoroughly before getting started.
As you might expect, the theme of an underwater Kingdom is quite peaceful and serene. The audio track to the game is very tranquil, we just hope not too tranquil to lull you to sleep! Actually, there is little risk of that because the gameplay is packed with action and a fairly brisk pace to keep you interested and on your toes at all times.
That said, an Atlantis theme is hardly original anymore and it might fatigue some players even more. Sure, there are the sea creatures and the beautiful mermaid floating about too, but the rest of it is far from unique or remarkable.The five reels definitely pack a punch, but the symbols of pearl shells, underwater animals and blingy gems are predictable.
In a nutshell, its a game that you'll immediately feel familiar with within two minutes of playing: it's up to you to decide whether you like that familiarity or need a bit more excitement from your mobile slot gambling. We feel like NetEnt could definitely have tried a bit harder with the graphics and the reel animations, but the features are really the most important part of any mobile slot. Let's check them out.
Features To Score Mega Wins
The winning potential is what should interest you and we think that this time around, NetEnt won't disappoint. Just like with their past mobile slots, the Secrets of Atlantis game is all about the features – of the deep, that is. With 40 fixed paylines, you know they mean business and the multiple win boosting features just go to prove it:
- Nudge Wild Symbol — the mermaid will appear to cover an entire reel; Collosal Stacked Wild will appear during re-spins instead
- Highlight Feature — lights up random symbols on reels two, three and four to trigger re-spins
- Re-spins with Collosal Symbols — a giant 3×4 symbol block to achieve big wins
- Win Both Ways — winning combinations are counted both left to right and right to left, doubling your chances of a win
All in all, the Secrets of Atlantis promises to be a good NetEnt slot, and definitely one to look forward to. With the welcome features of Colossal Symbols, Free Re-Spins and more, it's designed and released specifically for mobile devices, so you can rest assured it will work beautifully on any phone or tablet you happen to own. Not only that, the mobile slot looks superb and plays great too.
