Great Blue from Playtech: Slot Review - get your wet-suit on

Visit the vast ocean depths and meet Great Blue and his fishy friends deep down below! It is a 5 reel slot game made by Playtech.

This game centres mainly on life down below in the ocean depths. It has an aquatic theme and although there are many nature-based slot games out there, this has a certain charm to it.

The game is based on a Killer Whale called Great Blue and his fishy companions include sharks, turtles and even seahorses!

It is a 5 reel slot game that has 25 paylines and comes equipped with some snazzy features that will keep you underwater for quite some time!

Special Features

The game is pretty straightforward for playing but has some neat features that provide excellent replay value the more you play.

The first feature is Free Spins. You can trigger it by landing three more of the Pearl Scatter symbols on your reels. This awards you with 8 free spins and then you have to pick 2 out of 5 shells correctly and this will give you a whopping 33 free spins and a 15X multiplier!

Additional free spins can be landed by getting 3 or more of the Pearl Scatter symbols.

It is also worth noting that Great Blue is the wild symbol and if you land 5 matching wild symbols then you will get a 10000 bonus and the wild symbol doubles all wins!
Definite catch of the day material here!

The second one is the Gamble feature and it is a guessing game of sorts. You have to guess if the next card on-screen will be red or black. The cool thing about this bonus game is that you can double up to a limit of €2,500. So if you want to risk big then the reward is big too!

Theme and Graphics

The game is a joy to look at and our aquatic friends are superbly illustrated on the reels. Great Blue is big and cute and all of his/her companions look wonderful as they move up and down the reels.
The animations are excellent and watching the bubbles pop up on screen, it really immerses you deep down in the ocean depths.

The music is upbeat and cheerful and suits the simple approach of the game down to a tee.
