King of Atlantis from IGT offers 5 reels, 40 pay lines and the chance to scoop a huge 25 million credits. Poseidon, complete with trident, is the first image to appear on screen as the game loads. A bright, shining background provides the backdrop, with golden rays beaming down and a sea bed rich with sparkling gold coins. While there is no music, there is enough going on as the reels spin to more than compensate for this small oversight.
An underwater paradise is a great way to describe this high-end game. Pay lines are fixed and there are a range of prizes to be won simply for landing three or more matching symbols on the reels. The mermaid is the most valuable, with the dolphin coming in at a close second and a further 6 symbols to look out for.
As with the majority of similar slots games, the wilds will replace all other symbols except the bonus. Choose 20, 40 or 60 Gigantic Wilds, complete with the rather powerful sound of the harp. Each is worth a different figure due to the sheer number of credit options available for players exploring this game. Although there is a distinct lack of a Scatter, Gamble Features and Bonus Game, the free spins option is a really exciting addition to play.
Land the trident bonus symbol on the first reel, alongside the Poseidon card, and players will be rewarded with 8 free spins. Although these cannot be triggered again during the round, the wilds will remain in place. However, when utilising the maximum of 60 wilds, it is possible for these to completely fill 2 reels, resulting in a talk from Poseidon and, of course, a lucrative credit prize too.
This is certainly not the only game designed with an underwater theme and won't be the last. However, the majority of these feature a slightly different focus, such as buried treasure, beach fun or marine life. King of Atlantis is also not the only themed game featuring Atlantis itself. Despite this, the designers have managed to achieve a game with a very individual identity and plenty of mystery.
Gorgeous Back Drops and Fun Game Play
There is so much to be won in this game, despite the lack of jackpots, scatters and bonus games. There is no auto play function, something which will disappoint some players. However, all in all this game is simple to play, fun and has been beautifully designed to include some pretty spectacular and pretty backgrounds. The wild card system is an exciting twist too. Players can download this game for desktop, mobile and tablet, so it is a really versatile option.
