Playtech invites you to explore the depths of the ocean and experience the serenity and contentment of life under the sea. Just like in their original Great Blue slot, you can enjoy the mesmerising sound of the water in tandem with joyful and rhythmic spinning music – it’s a lovely slot, welcoming you into the home of millions of sea creatures.
The upgraded slot, Great Blue Jackpot, also has the standard 5×3 reel layout, but it offers greater bonuses and much more fun.
The theme is closely connected to sea creatures and the joyful – yet tranquil – life that they lead beneath the waves.
Gameplay and Layout
The game is dominated by a lovely blue colour, fitting given everything takes place under the sea! The reels are made of several shades of blue, like little water houses for the symbols they contain. There are corals and other sea flora in the background, producing little animated bubbles.
The game has an average RTP of 95%. The minimum bet is $0.01 and the maximum is $12.50. The maximum jackpot is a million coins, however, so don’t go thinking this is some low-stakes game! There are 25 paylines, and here are the game’s symbols:
- Whale (Wild)
- Pearl (Scatter)
- A, K, Q, J, 10, 9
Pearl Bonus Feature
The pearl (or the seashell) symbol is a scatter that activates the Pearl Bonus game, but only if you land three scatters at the same time on the reels. This will activate the default 8 free spins and adds a 2x multiplier!
However, it also activates a pick-and-win game where you get to choose the two (out of three) closed seashells and open them up. Each seashell has some kind of modifier for the free spins, and this is applied immediately after selection. This round can grow to contain 33 free spins and multipliers worth up to x15.
Jackpot Bonus Feature
The jackpot bonus feature is randomly activated. However, the higher the wager, the higher the odds of the jackpot game being activated.
This bonus feature includes a mini-game where you get 20 tokens and 4 progressive jackpot offers. Each jackpot is marked by a sea animal (whale, shark, turtle, and fish), and when you collect all three coins for the animal corresponding a jackpot, it’s yours!
There’s no getting away from Deep Blue Jackpot’s basic aesthetic, but if appearance doesn’t matter to you, then it’s a great game. For us, any game boasting a progressive jackpot is worth a go!
