Atlantis Megaways slot, from Aussie developer ReelPlay, is set underwater and inspired by Greek mythology.
As the name suggests, it features the Megaways game engine from Big Time Gaming, which has a unique random reel modifier mechanic to alter the number of symbols showing up on the reels on any given spin, from two to seven, to create more ways of winning. (A whopping 117,649 in all maximum, but at least 324.)
See if you can unlock the treasures that lie beneath the surface! And enjoy the uplifting soundtrack while you’re at it.
How to play
You’ll find a good betting range here, from 0.20 to 25.
Using the Autoplay function, you can set up to 999 automatic and uninterrupted spins, freeing you to sit back and enjoy the action.
Symbols include the standard playing-card values A through 10, here appropriately decorated in seaweed in a nod to the game’s theme. Among the higher payers are creatures of the deep including a seahorse, octopus, dolphin and lionfish, gorgeously designed and perhaps a little different from the usual icons in underwater-themed slots.
The Greek god Poseidon is the most rewarding of the bigger payers – land six in a combo to bag 100x stake.
The Megaways cascade system mechanism sees winning icons whisked away from the reels to be replaced with a fresh batch which tumbles into the vacant spots. This chain reaction continues for as long as you continue to land winning combos.
Atlantis Megaways Slot Special Features
Appearing on the top bonus reel, the Wild is the sunken temple, and in typical fashion, it replaces any symbol bar the Scatter. You’ll only see it on the top bonus reel.
The Scatter in Atlantis Megaways is the shiny treasure chest icon, which will come with a specific value on it.
Pearl Jackpot Respins Perk
Land six of the Scatters to activate this round. The Scatters remain fixed in place, while you get to enjoy a trio of respins. Should you land any further treasure chests, the respins tally resets to three. This continues until there are no more respins or there is a Scatter on every spot on the reels.
Either way, the total value on the chests is totted up and shelled out. You either win a cash reward worth up to 100x stake, or one of the jackpot values, as described below.
If you hit the jackpot as mentioned above, you win the following:
- Mini jackpot – 10x stake
- Minor jackpot – 50x stake
- Major jackpot – 250x stake
- Grand jackpot – 2,000x stake
Note that while you can win the smaller two sums more than once in a round, the Grand and Major jackpots are limited to one win per round.
Return to Player
Atlantis Megaways is a mid-variance offering with an RTP or Return to Player that’s pretty decent at 96.09%.
There’s strong payout potential here, thanks to the features. Overall, Atlantis Megaways slot may appeal more to casual gamers than high rollers. Equally, it won’t be one for you if you settle for nothing less than a free spins round.
Some reviewers have described it as a mere clone of Hypernova Megaways. But it’s certainly a delight to look at. Give it a go, see what you think and let us know what you thought. Take it for a whirl in free demo mode first of all.
