Secrets of Atlantis from NetEnt: Slot Review - can you unearth the treasures of the lost city?

This game is based on the mythical lost city known as Atlantis. According to legend, Atlantis sank to the bottom of the sea due to having far too much treasure. You now have the opportunity to visit this place and claim as much of this booty as possible!

It is a 5 reel, 4 row, 40 payline slot and has some very nice features that will keep you hooked down on the seabed for quite some time!

Special Features

A cool feature of this game is the Nudge Wild Symbol. This is a Mermaid symbol that may be fully or partially displayed, it all depends on how the reels land after a spin. If only part of the Nudge Wild shows up on active rows then the Nudge Wild will be “nudged” up or down to cover the entire reel. A very unique take on Wild Symbols there!

The Highlight feature is randomly triggered when any of the reels 2, 3 and 4 are highlighted. If all of theses reels are highlighted together then the Colossal Symbols Respin feature will trigger. In this excellent feature, reels 2, 3 and 4 will morph into one reel with Colossal symbols on them. If this reel is fully highlighted then you will receive an additional Colossal Symbols Respin.

I did enjoy how both aforementioned features actually work seamlessly as you play. For instance, if you land a partial Colossal Stacked Wild during a Colossal symbols Respin then the Colossal Stacked Wild will get nudged up or down to cover the 3 middle reels. A stroke of genius there if you ask me!

Theme and Graphics

The game’s underwater city theme is superbly presented and it really does have the look and feel of an underwater paradise. The symbols display wonderfully on the reels and we are treated to crabs, jellyfish, mermaids and even clams showing up on them.

The animations are smooth and the graphics really do evoke an underwater kingdom lost to time. Just to mention the music, it is very upbeat and there is just a hint of a female Siren singing in the background.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 40 paylines, an amazing RTP of 97.3% and you can win up to 32,000 coins.

Below is a summary taken from the PayOut Table from the game. The amount won for each combination depends on the value of the bet when you spin the reels.
