The online slot which is called Lord of the Ocean from Novomatic first appeared in land-based casinos on slot machines of the Gaminator class. A colorful game about the lord of the seas, Poseidon, is included in the top 10 best slot machines from the developer. With the development of online casinos, GreenTube studio adapted this game for an online launch. Despite the redesigned interface and improved graphics, the video slot can be distinguished by its characteristic sound accompaniment, which creates the atmosphere of a gambling hall with "one-armed bandits".
A five-reel slot with three rows of symbols gives the gambler wide possibilities to choose the spin value. The gambler can change the number of active lines from 1 to 10 and bet on each from 0.01 to 5 credits in the casino currency. Thus, the maximum spin value reaches 50 credits.
The prize combinations are lined up on the active lines from left to right from the leftmost reel. The size of the win you can find in the paytable, the numbers in it change as the line bet increases or decreases. It is convenient for those gamblers who want to play Lord of the Ocean slot for money in an online casino, but do not want to think about calculating using the coefficients. The developer's stated return to player (RTP) rate is 95.1%.
The game provides a round for doubling, which can be started every time when a win combination is made. After that, the Gamble button appears on the control panel, by clicking on which, the gambler gets to a new screen. In the center of the field there is a deck of cards, the gambler needs to guess the color of the suit of the top sheet in the pile by clicking on the button with the corresponding inscription. If the answer is correct, the prize is doubled and you can try again. Also, the gambler at any time can refuse to continue the risk game, take away the prize and return to the regular mode.
The plot of the game is dedicated to the sunken Atlantis, which is hidden at the bottom of the ocean under the water column. A mysterious gate leads to the lost world, behind which are the ruins of once magnificent buildings decorated with statues. The main heroes are Poseidon, the lord of the ocean, and the beautiful Mermaid. In terms of the theme and the symbols involved, the video slot resembles the Mermaids Millions slot machine from Microgaming.
Low-paying symbols with card values J, Q, K and A form chains of three or more identical icons on the active line. More valuable signs are a sunken statue, a treasure chest, a Mermaid and Poseidon, the ruler of the ocean, form winning combinations of two or more icons in a row.
The function of the wild and the scatter in the game is performed by the same symbol. This is a golden magical decoration inlaid with precious stones. It complements the combo of any signs and also brings independent payouts for sets of 3 or more icons anywhere on the playing field. Another function of the scatter is to activate the bonus.
A series of ten free spins is activated by three or more scatters. Before the free spins start, a magic talisman appears in the center of the screen, in the center of which a random standard symbol is displayed. When using free spins, it is assigned the status of a bonus sign.
The prize round is played without spinning the reels: before each new attempt, the playing field is covered with an elegant gold pattern, which soon disappears, and combinations of symbols appear under it. In this mode, the bonus sign expands to the full height of the reel and is paid in combo as a scatter symbol even without making a continuous chain.
The secret of success in the bonus game consists in the using of an expanding symbol, which increases the chance of total filling the field with the same image. At the same time, a usual wild cannot complement combinations of bonus signs.
The "Lines" and "Total Bet" buttons at the bottom of the screen cause pop-up windows to appear where you can set the suitable parameters. The automatic game mode is activated by pressing the Auto button without selecting the number of spins until the user forcibly stops the reels.
By clicking on the "Menu" button, you can download the complete rules of the game, look the paytable or disable the start of the doubling round. The availability of a test mode allows you to play Lord of the Ocean slot machine for free and without registration. The modern version of the slot is adapted for smartphones.
