Atlantis Rising Slot Free Play
Theme of The Game
The depths of the oceans hide many things, and while there are all the expected creatures, treasures and sunken ships that you’d count on, the stories say that there are also remains of ancient civilizations to be found there. That’s what slots like Atlantis Rising are all about. In this particular case, we’re seeing what happened with Atlantis, a city that the legends mention, as having sunk in the ocean long ago. It appears to be thriving down there, being ruled by a king and a queen, both of them main characters of the slot, and top symbols.
Besides images of the King of Atlantis, and of the Queen, other symbols used will include the Compass, a Jellyfish, a Turtle, the Seahorse, and three gemstones. Rising Wilds and Tridents are going to be used for the slot’s features.
It’s one of Microgaming’s new releases in 2021, a slot machine that’s been designed for them by SpinPlay Games. This partnership is likely to bring us plenty of new games in the future. Previous titles include ones like Diamond King Jackpots, or 9 Blazing Diamonds (regular and WowPot versions).
How To Play It
Atlantis Rising doesn’t have to be expensive to play, it costs only $0.20 at a minimum, to spin the reels. It can be costly though, if you can afford it, as wagers of up to $100 are possible.
You’re looking at 5×4 reels, so it’s a bigger than average game area, where you can find 25 active pay lines. To get a win, 3, 4 or 5 symbols need to be aligned on an active win line, beginning from the leftmost reel.
One of the features that you’re likely to come across, is the Rising Wild. It looks like a bubble, which shows up in random locations, either in a regular or 2x multiplier form. When it lands, it starts moving up, one position at a time, until it leaves the reels. You get to use it for 1 or more paid spins then, and it can be helpful enough, particularly if you get the multiplier version, which doubles wins.
As the Rising Wilds are overlays, they can land on top of regular symbols. If that happens for the top-paying Compass icon, a Wild Blast will occur. This transforms all adjacent symbols into regular or multiplier wilds (they don’t rise though).
Wild symbols are going to be substitutes usually, but with the Wild Blast helping out, it’s possible to create combinations of their own, and they pay as much as the Compass does.
You do get free spins as well, but only if you have a minimum of 3 Trident symbols scattered around. With 10 to 20 bubble picks delivered by these scatters, you make your selections and you can get up to 5 free spins or up to 3 extra picks, from each one. There is even the possibility to retrigger the free spins.
This is not the sort of slot machine that you’d expect to become rich in. 500x the stake is the most that’s promised for a single spin, and even those rounds are not very likely to occur. On the other hand, it also has low-medium volatility, so there is little risk for your balance in the short run. RTP is set to 96.20%, which I’m also OK with.
Overall, Atlantis Rising feels like the sort of slot machine that should be fun for a beginner, or for anyone that doesn’t have a high appetite for risk.
