November 5, 2016
Australian players love ocean themed online pokies and Playtech has a fascinating selection of those. There are characterised by the deep blue of the ocean and symbols of creatures found beneath the waves. But each online pokie has its own individuality. Three of the best are reviewed here that can be played at Mansion Casino and Omni Casino.
For a long time Great Blue has been the landmark ocean themed pokie from Playtech. It is simple but visually appealing at the same time. The ocean is home to both docile and aggressive creatures and you will find both in Great Blue. The thematic symbols include pearl in a shell, turtle, seahorse, starfish, brightly coloured tropical fish, shark and whale. The whale is the wild symbol with a 2x multiplier property and you can see some amazing animations in the win combinations. The pearl triggers the bonus game. You first select two shells from the five that are displayed on the second screen. These reveal the number of free spins awarded.
Dolphin Cash has the reels set in a dynamic ocean background with fish swimming and the water rippling. The online pokie is better known for its innovative Shifting Wilds feature. The dolphin is the wild symbol and it first lands on reel 5. Then with every spin it moves one reel to the left. Therefore you are assured of a wild symbol for five consecutive spins. Dolphin Cash also has the Playtech XtraWin feature. You increase the total bet by 50% and the wild symbol will clone itself into two when it lands on the fifth reel. Then two wild symbols will move leftwards at the same time.
Wacky Waters is the latest ocean themed online pokie from Playtech and it has a comic slant. The wild symbol is Albert the blowfish and it also awards the top line payouts. The other sea creatures represented include shark, octopus, starfish, lobster, seahorse and fish. The hermit crab and anchor are the bonus symbols. When Albert lands on the centre row of reel 3, he adds up to six more wild symbols on the reels. The Cash Crab feature triggered by hermit crabs is a pick objects bonus game on the second screen. The Albert’s Underwater Bonus is triggered by the anchor. You help Albert to escape from the anchor and win payout multipliers, free spins and extra wilds. These come into play in the Wacky Waters free spins.
