Great Blue Slots
Great Blue has a well-designed theme that offers a bright blue background of the ocean. Reels appear in a lighter blue and offer various fish symbols including sharks. Most symbols become animated once featured in a win, which can occur over its 25 paylines. There are five reels and multiple betting options below them, which includes many coin values, multipliers and the ability to adjust pay-lines for lower bets. The game rewards more once bonus features take action. During the main game wilds and scatters appear along with a free spin bonus. Line up these wilds from left to right for a payout of 10,000 coins. We found the theme interesting and were delighted by the animations as it was unexpected. The game can be enjoyed on iOS and Android mobile devices as well.
Great Blue has standard features other than the free spin bonus. The wilds do not offer anything that you won’t see in other video slots. The bet options and other game settings put players in control, which has always been a great benefit with Playtech.
The game wilds appear as the whale on any position, on any reel. These symbols provide more payouts as they can stand in for other symbols and finalize more winnings, meaning the wilds can also extend rewards by making the combination bigger and offering a higher payout. All game symbols can use the wilds, but the scatters as they do not require any pay-lines or special order to reward.
Scatters appear as the pink pearl symbol. Get at least 3 scatters anywhere to activate the free spin bonus game and additional wager multipliers upon activation. The game will reward eight free spins, but allow you to play a picking bonus before they start. The picking bonus will display five shells on your screen. Players get to choose two shells, which can consist of additional free games and multipliers. The game states up to 33 free games and a multiplier of 15x can be rewarded. We managed to activate the feature three times and at most we received 20 free games and a 3x multiplier, which isn’t a bad combination, but we wouldn’t recommend aiming for the multipliers and free spins displayed by the game.
Great Blue was an enjoyable game with winning occurring regularily during standard spins. Free spins come along from time to time and can be highly rewarding with the picking bonus taking place before the feature. We found the feature can be triggered again in free spins, which is a great way to make up for shortcomings with the bonus game. Our rating: 82/100
