Ocean Rush Slots
Before seeing this slot, I was starting to think that all EGT slots were broadly the same. The themes are varied of course – it was just that the general look and feel of the games (detailed symbols with animations, free spins and so on) are quite similar. Ocean Rush stands out – and in a good way. This underwater themed slot is far more ‘cartoon-like’ than other games by EGT. It also has an element of humour (especially with the animations) which the other games can lack. There are plenty of opportunities to win big too. These include a free spins game with multipliers, and pick-em scatters – along with the card suit progressive jackpots which this software house uses for all of their games.
As you might expect from an underwater theme, the slot is very blue. There is a background design featuring corals and seaweed, and the reels are a bubble strewn blue too. The symbols are both colourful and character full. These include an orange crab with big eyes, lipstick-wearing starfish, somewhat goofy looking shark, pink octopus and even king Neptune – complete with big green beard. When you hit wins, the animations are fun. King Neptune booms out ‘Welcome to my kingdom’ and others have small sequences of their own. Look out for the wild symbol, with the speedy grinning zebra fish. There are even better animations when you trigger the bonus game, and need to choose from 12 clams before starting the spins part.
