Deep Sea Treasure
Deep Sea Treasure Slots a Visual Delight
Deep Sea Treasure is a watery video slot machine produced by the slightly lesser known game developer, Blueprint Gaming. The slots game unfolds over 5 reels and 20 paylines in an underwater environment complete with ocean floor, underwater rocks and coral reefs. The symbols swimming about on the reels are an octopus, a starfish, a turtle and some orange tropical fish. Some underwater features such as an anchor are also represented, as are the 9, 10, J, Q and K card symbols. The symbols are beautifully, and slightly comically drawn, giving the game a light-hearted feel.
Wild and Scatter Symbols
The Wild symbol in Deep Sea Treasure is a shark that notably propagates the image of a large toothed, and dangerous fish, but the Scatter symbol, delightfully, is a puffer that blows up displaying all its spines when landed. No doubt with plenty of tetrodotoxin being generated.
Three or more of these puffer fish Scatter symbols activate the highly rewarding free spins round.
Landing the Scatter symbol is the financial objective of this slots game, and the Bonus game starts off with selecting a particular puffer fish from several on offer, to determine the number of free spins. After the free spins round is completed, and the initial winnings determined, a further selection of deep sea treasure chests are presented by the Octopus. Selecting one of these chests will award the player with a random multiplier with which the winnings achieved during this feature are multiplied.
The Winning Options and Spins
The aforementioned Shark Wild symbol, in the base game substitutes for any symbol in creating winning combinations, apart from the Scatter symbol of course, but in the free spins round, landing a Wild symbol applies a random multiplier up to a maximum of 5. Five Wild symbols appearing on a single activated payline will reward the lucky player with a substantial 10 000 coin jackpot. At the maximum line bet this could amount to a large win.
Blueprint Gamings’ slot machine are well known for solid graphics, novel features and distinctive bonus games, and Deep Sea Treasure is characteristic of this reputation. The game settings in Deep Sea Treasure online slots game are highly variable, with the coin denomination range going from a meagre 0.01 coins to a substantial 25 coins. This translates to a maximum bet size of 500 coins.
The Game Summary
The game interface is also typical of Blueprint games, and is simple, intuitive and clear. The return to player percentage has been published by several casinos offering the game as 95.74%, which not exceptional, but, as they say, since it is not published by the game developer should be taken as a guideline only since the game itself may be configurable.
Nevertheless, despite outward appearances, Deep Sea Treasure is not a standard slots game. The acquisition of free spins is what makes it particularly interesting, since the major winnings from this round is really only determined at the end, via the aptly named deep sea treasure chests. Adding a higher level of volatility to the game this aspect makes for an exciting and potentially lucrative slots game.
