The legend of the lost city of Atlantis is such a legend that it’s no secret. How we have all dreamed of getting our scuba gear on and exploring this mythic city hidden in the depths of the ocean. Thanks to legendary slots developers Net Entertainment online gamers can explore the depths with gusto in the Secrets Of Atlantis Slot. A five reel, four row, 40 pay-line slot that pays both ways and has us dripping with excitement.

Gameplay

NetEnt loves an intro, so all NetEnt fans won’t be disappointed with the epic intro that leads us from the water’s surface down beneath the waves and to the bottom of the ocean. Set amongst pillars and temples, in the watery distance we can see a glimmering city that beckons invitingly to us. Very much in the foreground, a beautiful Mermaid Wild floats in the centre reel. She is our Stacked Wild symbol and Nudges to become a full Stacked Wild if any part of her appears on any symbol. Substituting for all symbols.

Otherwise our symbols form winning lines as usual, but paying both left-to-right and right-to-left. I’m pleased to say that there are no 10s through Aces here – all symbols are well-drawn and incredibly visual. Our low-payers are beasts of the sea – a Jellyfish, Turtle and Crab encircled in a bubble – while our high-payers are gem-like versions of the same. A deep sea Pearl sits breathtakingly in her clam as the game’s top-paying symbol.

Bonuses

In the Secrets Of Atlantis Slot, not only does NetEnt offer us 40 pay-lines that pay both ways, but also a well-devised bonus system that elevates our base game play. Reels 2, 3 and 4 appear highlighted in the Highlight Feature. If we land a spin with all three centre reels highlight we trigger the Colossal Re-Spin Feature. This will see those three centre reels re-spun with Colossal Symbols filling the entire 3×4 set of rows and columns.

If the reels land with an entire Colossal symbol filling reels 2, 3 and 4 we earn an additional Re-Spin on top of collecting our winnings. Players can do so continually until only partial Colossal Symbols are displayed. However, even partially displayed Colossal Symbols can deliver decent wins, depending on the win combos completed. Our Mermaid Wild also appears as a Colossal Symbol. And again nudges if she is partially displayed to cover the entire 3×4 grid, guaranteeing a big win.

Summary

NetEnt loves in-game bonus features, and the pay-both-ways system across an incredible 40 pay-lines means there is plenty of opportunity for base game wins. Couple that with the Highlight Feature and Colossal Symbols Re-spin that brings extra excitement to this adventure. Together with the beautiful Wild Mermaid, which means in the Secrets Of Atlantis online slot NetEnt have created an entertaining and high variance title without a dedicated bonus round in sight.
