Great Blue Slots

Featuring an underwater theme, Great Blue has been around since 2009, with the mobile version of the slot released by Playtech in 2013. The 5 reel 25 payline video slot takes players to the world of deep sea creatures, making its appearance on the game screen to form winning combinations and award free spins and multipliers. And while the graphics may not be impressive, you are likely to enjoy relaxing ocean sounds and simple game play.

How to play Great Blue

There are quite a few selection online gamers need to make before they start enjoying this video slot, with coin value, lines and bet per line buttons set to determine their total bet. They can subsequently press spin, bet max or auto start to begin, with info tab taking you to paytable displayed in a second screen. Whale Wild replaces all game symbols except for Scatters to form winning combinations and also doubles any payout, while paying out for two or more matching symbols as well. Pearl Scatters award payouts regardless of their position, multiplying your total bet between 2 and 500 times when two or more of these occur on the reels. Gamble option can be used to increase your line wins, with correct guess whether the next card is red or black doubling your winnings.

Betting Options and Payouts

Don't be disappointed by the fact there are only six coin values available - $0.01, $0.02, $0.03, $0.04, $0.05 and $0.10, since players can select up to 25 paylines and maximum 10 coins per line. This basically means you can bet anywhere from $0.01 to $25 per single spin of the reels. You can also select up to 99 spins using the auto start option. Payouts on regular symbols or not that impressive, with top payout being 750 coins, although you will receive double the amount if a Whale Wild substitutes in a winning combination. Unsurprisingly, this is also the highest paying icon in the game, awarding whopping 10,000 coins for five matching symbols on an active payline.

Symbols and Extra Features

A plethora of adorable sea creatures populate the reels at all times, and these include sharks, sea turtles, sea horses, starfish and tropical fish, with standard playing cards Nine, Ten, Jack, Queen, King and Ace completing the list. When it comes to special game symbols, these are represented by Whale and Pearl. Two, three, four and five Pearl Scatters appearing in any position multiply your total bet 2, 5, 20 and 500 times, whereas at least three of these trigger the Free Spin round. Players are automatically awarded 8 free spins and 2x multiplier, whereas they get to pick two shells for up to 33 free spins or up to 15x multipliers.

Great Blue on Mobile

As of recently, Great Blue can also be played on the move, using iOS or Android devices, with the game losing none of its appeal when it is enjoyed on the latest handheld devices. The main difference is that mobile game is played at fixed 25 paylines, but the payouts and extra features remain exactly the same.

Our verdict

Great Blue is a simple slot machine that ensures good, clean fun on desktop, mobile and tablet, but it still provides players with enough opportunities to striker it rich. With Wild icon doubling all wins and awarding up to 10,000 coins and Scatter payouts multiplying your total bet up to 500 times, this seems more than we have bargained for. On top of that, potential 33 free spins and 15x multipliers during bonus round should be enough incentive for online gamers to try it out.
