If we were out kayaking, the last thing we’d ever expect would be getting slapped in the face. With an octopus. By a seal. But that’s exactly what happened to one unlucky paddler off the coast of New Zealand. And while we’d love to see more sea mammal battles, we’d also like to see some aquatic slots battles. So we dived under the sea to check out Iron Dog Studio’s Siren’s Kingdom and compare it to NetEnt’s classic slot Secrets of Atlantis. But which seafaring slot will surge to the surface?

A Slap, A Splash, A Spin, A Win

Hearing the siren’s call, we head to the ocean depths on Siren’s Kingdom, a five reel, 30 payline slot. It’s a different take on a watery theme, with Iron Dog heading to Hawaii on its Wai-Kiki slot but instead basing that release on sumptuous shores rather than in deep depths. In Siren’s Kingdom, the red-headed mermaid is the slot’s Wild and certainly makes sweet music when she helps form a winning combination. The Octopus Scatter is also particularly tasty, especially when it sends us sopping free spins. So while it’s fun spinning away on this under the sea adventure, if we swim out a bit further, there’s even more to enjoy courtesy of NetEnt.

Secrets of Atlantis is a five reel, 40 payline slot that again has a mermaid Wild, though this time when she appears she takes up the entire column to help create even more wins. As well as Colossal Symbols Re-spins and Colossal Stacked Wilds, this slot is a little bit closer to underwater myths and legends. I mean, when were the sirens mermaids? Come on Iron Dog, get your Odyssey out and give it another read! Oh and there’s one big mermaid who deserves a little mention ?

Mermaid For Us

Both of these slots are great underwater adventures, Bonus features, mermaids (have we ranted about the sirens enough already?) and plenty of wins. In fact, landing a big win on one of these slots is as impactful as a seal whacking us in the face with an octopus. Kind of.
