Play Secret of Atlantis slots for free or real money - no pop-up ads, no spam
The story of an advanced, Atlantean society, existing off the coast of Europe and shaping the world was something that captured many minds, and has now come to be the key theme of this 5x4 slot with 40 fixed paylines. Here, we have Secret of Atlantis, a superb NetEnt slot machine that is totally free to play.
No matter how hard humans try, some mysteries have simply continued to elude us throughout the ages. While we’re far from our ancestors who lived in caves and feared thunder, our knowledge of the world, while exhaustive in some areas, is sorely lacking in others.
This game offers a highlight feature that can lead into a re-spin with an absolutely massive symbol taking up the centre stage, and nudge Wild that can move oh so slightly to fill out the reel it lands on.
The user interface offers various shades of blue, which everything cleanly labelled and marked for your convenience. The visuals certainly aren’t lagging behind, with plentiful marine wildlife scattered on the reels, while the ruins of an ancient city are visible in the backdrop, long since sunk at the bottom of the ocean someplace. One small asset of this title we weren’t too thrilled about were the animations. They’re serviceable, but felt just a little bit lazy.
You have a full reel of unique symbols to play around in Secrets of Atlantis. A jellyfish, a turtle and a crab can be seen wandering about as low paying symbols, several gemstones of different shapes and colours, as well as a shell with its valuable pearl open for the taking as higher paying icons, befitting of the treasures you would undoubtedly find in this ancient, long forgotten city.
The Nudge Wild is a relatively simple special feature to understand. The symbol itself covers an entire reel at full size, but it can appear partially on the reels. When that happens, it will simply nudge itself into place, pushing out any symbols beneath to make sure it takes up the full reel and increases your chances of winning.
At the same time, while playing the game, you will notice one, or more, reels are always highlighted. If the second, third and fourth reel are completely highlighted by the end of a spin, it rewards a Colossal symbol re-spin. As it says on the tin, it creates a massive 3x4 symbol, which then pays out and gives you a single re-spin, with the possibility of earning more by the highlight feature appearing on one of the three reels the Colossal icon is taking up.
While it’s certainly no worn-out free spins bonus we’re used to seeing in every title by now, we’re not entirely sure if it’s good enough to act as a replacement. The idea of a massive symbol that rewards a re-spin is awesome, and the possibility of that Colossal icon being any symbol, including a Wild, is without a doubt something that will capture many imaginations.
All in all, the features are good, but they’re rare, which contributes to the game’s medium volatility. Secrets of Atlantis offers a 97.07% RTP to its players, gorgeous graphics worthy of NetEnt, and decent gameplay with a few hick-ups here and there.
