Lord of the Ocean
Lord of the Ocean Slot
This is a richly designed and colourful slot from Novomatic. For me this one stands out from their other games on two fronts. First, the detail of the symbols and general smoothness of the play. Secondly, there are some additional features, including an expanding wild, which I have not come across in Novomatic’s titles before. The setting is mythological, with Poseidon featuring heavily. This slot does have the potential for big pay-outs too. It is a higher variance game, and will best suit those players who prefer their slots less interactive and more focused on big prizes. Like many Novomatic slots, this game has 10 pay lines.
The graphics are as good as I have seen on any slot by this manufacturer. Attention to detail and the overall balance on the reels really make a difference to the atmosphere of any slot – and this one pulls it off well. Even the frame of the game, with Atlantis and shipwrecks are nicely done. You can switch off the standard (horrible) bleeping ‘tune’ which Novomatic uses for all games. This leaves the clunk of the reels and the much more listenable tunes for wins in place. There are some themed sound effects, though these are fairly limited.
Free spins are worth waiting for in this game. You’ll be assigned a wild symbol, which expands to fill all 3 positions on a reel when it hits. The setup of this bonus game is a little odd (see below), though it does result in some outsized wins.
