While DC may have its fair share of troubles making successful movies and catching up to Marvel, nobody can deny that they are the dominant force in the slot market. All it took was to sign a deal with Playtech for a series of games, varying in themes and gameplay, but all tied together with a unified DC Super Heroes progressive jackpot, one that was shared between every title. Both superhero fans and gamblers that love progressive jackpots can rejoice, as Aquaman joins the ranks of this prestigious group. The slot is played on a 5x3 playing field with 243 ways to win. The game’s bonuses include two re-spins, free spins with transforming symbols and multipliers, and four progressive jackpots.
How to PlayMaking a good looking title that is not taxing on hardware is not particularly difficult, and Playtech’s latest release is the perfect example of this. The background image is entirely static, using a screen effect to make it seem as if the players are actually underwater. We like the animations that play during screen transition to special features, especially the free spins one. Aquaman is played on a standard 5x3 playing field, where pays are awarded by collecting three or more identical symbols in adjacent positions from left to right. The slot has two re-spin special features, that can be combined together, and a free spins bonus that has icon replacement and multiplier Wilds.
Betting Options and PayoutGamblers can wager between $0.25 up to $500 per spin, which is an amazing betting spread for both casual players and high rollers. The game has a high variance and an RTP of 95.99%, slightly below the average compared to other titles by the same developer. The maximum win is worth 2,000x your total bet, not including the progressive jackpot.
Symbols and Extra FeaturesSymbols include playing card royals 10, J, Q, K and A, alongside several of Aquaman’s villains, as well as Mera and Aquaman himself. His golden trident is Wild, while the golden crown of Atlantis is Scatter. When Aquaman completely covers the second reel, he throws his trident on the playing field, turning three adjacent icons into sticky Wilds. The reels will re-spin until a winning combination hits. In the same way, Mera completely occupying the fourth reel triggers her re-spins. She chooses a random symbol to lock in place, and re-spins the reels. If more of that icon appears, they are locked in place and the playing field is spun again. Landing both Mera and Aquaman at the same time plays both re-spins. Three, four or five Scatters reward 8, 12 or 16 free spins, respectively, with the possibility to retrigger and get more. During these extra turns, a golden Aquaman can appear. Collecting enough of him transforms the villain symbols into Aquaman icons. Also during free spins, Wilds can have a 2x, 3x or 4x multipliers appear when part of a winning combination.
Our VerdictPlaytech could have made a boring progressive slot and called it a day, but instead, they went the extra mile. Adding extra special features, superb visuals and genuinely fun gameplay to keep gamblers invested. For us, it is an easy recommendation – if you like chasing progressive jackpots, you will not be disappointed.
