They say we have only explored and charted about 5% of Earth’s oceans, so who can really say what mysteries await in the depths. The mighty great white shark, the ancient coelacanth and possibly even the mysterious giant squid all lurk below.
In Octopus Treasure by Play’n Go, you come face to face with one of the more well-known creatures of the sea, the aforementioned octopus!
Theme and Symbols
The theme of this video slot is set underwater as you would expect but where it really drives the setting home is through the visuals and the audio.
The musical backtrack is menacing and imposing, it makes you feel like you’re about to fight the giant octopus for the treasure it’s guarding. There’s a bubble sound effect that comes from the special symbols that appear on the grid that further reinforces the idea of an underwater odyssey.
The graphical fidelity of this game is phenomenal. The octopus in the background is animated in such a way that you’re aware of its presence but it isn’t too distracting. The art work of the symbols is stellar and everything fits the theme quite well. The unique icons are also animated very well and further helps bring the grid to life.
It’s clear to see that developer Play ’n GO have injected their usual level of quality and polish into this title.
Betting Options and Features
A standard 5 reel, 3 row video slot is what you can expect from this game but don’t let that deter you, there is still much on offer from this title.
The game boasts a fairly decent 20 paylines for you to take advantage of along with the chance to win up to 5000x your bet.
But that’s not all: there’s some pretty interesting features in this vast blue ocean.
There is a Wild symbol represented by some coral with the word “WILD” written across it. This special symbol can substitute for any other reel image, except of course, for the scatter symbol.
The scatter icon is represented by a pearl in a clam, very much pushing the idea that it is super valuable.
Every now and then a key will appear on your grid, should this happen the octopus will use one of its tentacles to pull down a treasure chest and another to grab the key and unlock the chest.
What’s inside you ask? Some shiny bonus spins of course!
From time to time the octopus will give you a helping hand by transforming some of your symbols to help you get some matches, which is incredibly kind!
Once again Play ‘n GO has knocked it out of the park with another stellar video slot. The underwater theme is always a nice setting but they’ve taken it a step beyond with the addition of the giant animated octopus and the booming soundtrack.
The generous paylines coupled with the interesting features all help make this a very well rounded video slot that can be played both in desktop browser and on mobile.
