Look and Feel
As players might expect from a NetEnt property, Secrets of Atlantis looks great. The game takes its inspiration loosely from the mythology of Atlantis, and presents an eerie underwater backdrop showcasing the decaying ruins of the lost city, with an ethereally beautiful soundtrack, including mysterious sound effects and dreamy music.
The symbols decorating the reels follow the underwater theme, with lower value symbols including a crab, turtle, and jellyfish all encased in bubbles. The higher value symbols are represented by stylized jewels that recall the shapes of the crab, turtle, and jellyfish, and are similarly colored red, green, and blue. The game’s highest value symbol is a pearl in an oyster shell, worth up to 400 coins for five matching symbols. There is also a stacked wild in the form of a beautifully painted mermaid.
Secrets of Atlantis offers 40 fixed paylines, and bets are controlled through the “Level” and “Coin Value” selectors. There are autoplay and max bet options available, with the possibility of stopping autoplay spins early if required. The minimum bet per spin is 20p, with a ceiling of £200 per spin and a maximum coin value of 1.00 and ten possible bet levels.
The game’s standout feature is its Highlight feature, which randomly highlights positions on reels 2, 3, and 4 on every spin, and works to boost the chances of winning on every bet. If the highlights appear completely stacked at the end of a spin, the Colossal Symbols Respin bonus is activated.
The Colossal Symbols Respin bonus means that reels 2, 3, and 4 transform into one giant reel featuring massive “Colossal” symbols, which are transformed from blocks of 3×4 symbols. This only happens in the Colossal Symbols bonus game, and offers players the chance for every symbol to earn one free spin. It’s possible to earn more Colossal Symbols bonuses during these rounds.
Secrets of Atlantis also features a mermaid wild, which is a full length stacked wild portrait that also acts as a nudge wild, meaning the wild can be nudged up or down one space on a reel to fill all positions on the reel and hopefully resulting in big wins! Wilds may also act as nudge wilds during Colossal Symbols Respin rounds.
Overall, Secrets of Atlantis integrates its bonus features very well into the main game, and offers players an immersive and engaging gameplay experience, with the potential for lucrative rewards.
