Lord of the Ocean Slot Machine Game Overview
Lord of the Ocean is a slot machine perfect for new players. Played across 5 reels and with up to 10 active win lines, players can enjoy highly customizable bets and very lucrative free spins while playing one of the most popular online slots in recent years.
In terms of bonus features, you will not find too much in the base game. You will, however, find a scatter symbol that also acts as a wild symbol in this game. This scatter/wild pays out up to 2,000 times your stake when you land 5, and you can choose to gamble any wins you get.
The gamble feature is a classic double or nothing bonus game, and you will pick either a red or a black card. If you bet on the correct color, you will double your winnings, and you can keep gambling up to 5 times here. However, if you bet on the wrong color only once, you will lose whatever you brought into the bonus game with you.
Free spins in Lord of the Ocean
As mentioned, this game is mostly about the free spins feature, and this is not unusual for games in the book-series tradition. You need to land at least 3 Gate scatter symbols on the same spin to trigger the free spins feature, and this will also give you a win of either 20x, 200x or 2,000x upfront, which is not a bad start at all.
You start off with 10 free spins either way, so the only thing that varies is the up-front payout you land. You can also retrigger the free spins, and get 10 new spins by landing 3+ scatter/wilds during the feature. There is no upper limit or cap on how many times you can retrigger this feature.
As you probably know from other slots in the book-series, a special symbol will be chosen among the regular symbols before the bonus rounds play out. This will become the expanding symbol during the feature, and it will expand to cover the full reel wherever it lands (as long as it means a winning combo is created).
Like Book of Ra, Lord of the Ocean has been entertaining players for a relatively long time and it came as no surprise when they announced that it was to form part of the spine of their online offering. The ten win lines and five reels may be familiar and nothing too special when it comes to Novomatic, but the quality of the graphics and features are what really set the game apart from the crowd. The Lord of the Ocean himself, for example, is a highly detailed symbol visually and one of the most important in the game as he is responsible for some of the largest payouts.
Three or more bonus symbols take players to a free spins round with ten on offer, but as always there is a twist. Before the spins start, a symbol will be selected at random. Every time this symbol appears during the bonus game, it will expand to cover the entire reel. In practice, this means that spinning in five in a row of the chosen symbol effectively pays out ten times the value thanks to the ten win lines and this is comfortably one of the most lucrative prizes in the Novomatic range.
