The wombat says: Aquatic Treasures slot from Gold Coin Studios has been developed exclusively for Microgaming. And, as you might have guessed, it is an underwater-themed game. If you fancy learning to scuba dive but can’t be bothered with all that equipment – then this slot will be right up your street. There´s also the Fishing Cash Pots slot and Fishing Frenzy slot if you like water in your game.
Aside from immersing yourself in the underwater world, you’ll also be treated to some cool Expanding Wilds that cover entire reels from top to bottom plus max possible wins of 357x our bet.
What are you waiting for wombat fans? Come on, dive in!
Look and Feel
If you think this slot looks a bit like Ocean’s Treasure slot from NetEnt, you’d be bang on the money Wombat fans.
Your transparent reels float in a shimmery green abyss, while sea life swims past from time to time including silhouettes of stingrays and some little fishies.
Meanwhile your soundtrack is so relaxing it might just make you horizontal – with all the new-age whale music and the odd bubble from the sea. Grab a pillow, you might need it.
It’s easy on the eye and quite relaxing to play.
Aquatic Treasures slot comes with 5 reels 3 rows and 20 pay-lines, just like the Augustus slot from Neon Valley Studios. There’s a decent bet range on offer too; from 0.20 to 100.00 credits per spin which will cater for all kinds of bankroll.
Your reel icons include gemstones in purple, blue and green as your higher paying icons, plus the 10, J, Q & K royals form the playing card deck. Land 5x of the sparkling purple sea stone and you’ll net yourself 7.5x your bet. Another option for you is the Silver Seas slot if you like this one: also a Microgaming joint venture, again with Gold coin Studios.
Wild and Scatters
The friendly-looking dolphin is your wild icon here and will expand to cover the whole reel whenever it lands. But, if 2x or more wilds land next to each other, they will combine to make one mega Wild. Nice!
This helpful smiley creature will hit reels 2, 3 and 4 and substitute for everything else on the Pay Table except the scatter symbol. And speaking of which, the scatter is the white shiny pearl surrounded by 2 golden dolphins.
Free Spins and Bonus Features
Land 3x or more of the pearly scatters and you’ll trigger off the free spins. 8x spins are now yours and extra wilds will be added to the reels during the bonus for the chance to net some even bigger pay outs.
Best of all, if you land another 3 scatter icons during play you’ll retrigger your spins.
Double Up Gamble Feature
Feeling lucky? After any base game or free spins pay out, you can decide to gamble your winnings by clicking on the gold double-up at the bottom left of your screen.
Guess either head or tails and if you pick correctly you’ll get x2 the amount. Get it wrong though and you’ll lose it all… Ouch.
Aquatic Treasures slot isn’t the most feature-packed game out there, but we reckon it’s a solid option for slot newbies – with that 357x your bet max win.
Spin the reels if you feel like being soothed by the ocean’s calm sounds. Or even if you fancy a low-variance flutter.
Otherwise you might find this a little on the tame side…
