Play Lord of the Ocean Online Casino Slots for Free or Real Money
Inspired by Greek Mythology, Lord of the Ocean by Novomatic is a classic video slot set deep inside the blue realm and featuring mighty Poseidon as the game's highest value symbol. If you are not really a fan of petty, vengeful gods and their shenanigans, you will probably remember him as Little Mermaid's grandfather and Triton's dad.
Out of all the slots made by Novomatic, the Lord of the Ocean might one of the best. Or at least, the most popular. It is very similar, in some ways, to Book of Ra, but has extra features and charm, which has to be a good thing.
The blue-haired beauty and the symbol second in value that you will most certainly not recognise - unless you are a true scholar, in which case we humbly apologise - is Poseidon's partner in crime and wife Amphitrite, goddess of the sea and one of 50 daughters of Doris, the sea nymph and Nereus, the oldest son of Sea and Earth (Pontus and Gaia). How's that for a family tree?
Lord of the Ocean has 5 reels and 10 adjustable paylines which can be set using the + and – commands at the very bottom of the game screen. The minimum number of coins that can be wagered per line is one and if you feel that this is not really challenging, you can maximise the bet to 5,000 coins on a single line, making the max bet 50,000 coins per spin. The game is estimated as a medium volatility slot and comes with the return to player percentage of 95.1%.
In case you are feeling lucky, Gamble feature can be used after every winning spin for a chance to double the won amount up to 5 times. All you need to do is guess the colour of the card facing down – should you fail, the money will be deducted from your balance and you will be returned to the base game.
Once the bets are all set, players can get the advantage of Auto Play button and avoid having to click the spin button every time. The option will not void the Gamble feature and it can only be stopped manually since there are no advanced Auto Play setups available.
The Scatter symbol has a dual value, functioning as the bonus-feature triggering icon and replacement of other symbols. Three of the Scatters will trigger 10 Free Spins, during which a special expanding icon will appear – this icon cannot be replaced by the Scatter.
The expanding symbol is determined at random before the Free Games session begins. While the bonus rounds are in progress, the selected icon will stretch across three reel positions; the icon will have the same value as in the base game but will be paid even if it lands onto the non-connecting reels.
Triggering Free Games may take some time and somewhat longer time spans between the bonus rounds are known to happen. When you finally manage to activate the Free Spins, expanding icon is not guaranteed and it is not uncommon for the bonus spins to expire without reels being covered by the relevant symbol.
On the other hand, base games winnings can be pretty decent and the players can expect higher value symbols to land in decent intervals.
Even though Legend of the Ocean is released back in 2008, when it comes to visual representation, payout hit frequency, and bonus features, it can still compete with the new slots. If we could change but one thing with this slot, it would definitely be the bonus feature rate of occurrence, although, with a bit of luck, the relatively sporadic free spins sessions may be compensated with the main game wins.
More Free Demo Games
When you play the bonus round in Lord of Ocean slots, you get an initial 10 free spins. This can be re-triggered during the bonus game, so you could end up with 20, 30 or even 100 free spins in total, if you were really lucky.
The bonus round is free spins in style, but the symbols dont spin. Instead, they reveal themselves like a scratch card. At the same time, the music is cinematic and makes you feel like you are part of a Hollywood movie. Something like you would get in Lord of The Rings (sounds familiar!)
Like in Book of Ra slots, you get expanding symbols in the bonus round. A lot depends on which symbols you are given at the beginning of the bonus (the ones that will expand). Some massive wins are possible if you get the right symbol.
To play real money, you most likely need to be in an EU country, or the UK, because Lord of the Ocean is not yet released for real cash play in the US or Canada. But, you can enjoy very similar games at our recommended casinos, many of which you might actually find more fun.
