Descend into deep waters on the slot from NetEnt in search of the Ocean’s Treasure. Brace for an encounter with a fiery underwater goddess as she reigns the reels as stacked wild in the main game. Enter the free spins to discover the long lost treasures that she has been guarding for eternity and reach level five to benefit from a win multiplier of x12 that can lead to wins of up to 1,200 times your bet on a single spin.
Ocean’s Treasure is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 15 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. You can delve into a mythological world on desktop or mobile from 0.15 to 300 credits per spins. The game has medium volatility with an RTP of 95.99%.
Loading the game will see you entering a mystical underwater world with a game window carved out of corals with two eternal soldiers standing guard on either side. The scenery comes alive in the bonus round with a red Kraken appearing on top should you be lucky enough to reach the top level in the free spins. A goddess with a golden trident dominates as a stacked wild on the reels while a mainly classical soundtrack is trying hard to add suspense to the gameplay.
The pay symbols start at the low end with the card royals from J through to A, awarding 4x to 10x your stake for a single five of a kind. They are followed by treasure room keys, ancient compasses, a message in a bottle, and a gem arrangement with golden ornaments. Hit five on a line to win 30x to 100x your stake.
The game has two wilds. The stacked wild appears as an underwater goddess with a trident in the base game only while a regular wild marked with the tip of the golden trident can land in the free spins as well. Both substitute for all regular symbols bar the scatter which is a royal treasure chest.
Ocean’s Treasure Slot Features
My first reaction to this NetEnt creation was that it looks like a clone of Steam Tower, a reasonably successful slot the Swedish studio released back in 2015. And indeed it is a semi-clone as the stacked wild is no longer the trigger for the one and only feature but also the multipliers can reach now x12 in the free spins. A rather poor showing when that is all they can come up with after four years of the original wandering through the casino lobby.
Well, let’s get through it all as there is not really much to report. Hitting chest scatters on reels one, three and five will get you 10 Free Spins with an x3 starting multiplier. There is no retrigger but any regular wild landing on a free spin will award +2 free spins, up to a maximum of 102. However, just like on Steam Tower, you will always get just +2 even when multiple wilds appear on the reels in a single spin.
The same goes for the multiplier meter on top of the game window. It fills up by one section when one or more wilds land on a free spin. Completing a level will see the win multiplier increase from x3 to x5, x7, x9 and ultimately x12. Reaching level five will reward you with an extra coin win of 100x your bet. Hitting a five of a kind of the top symbol with the x12 multiplier will pay the maximum win in a single spin coming at 1,200 times your bet.
After reviewing Piggy Riches Megaways just days earlier, I was hoping to see something equally exciting with their next planned release. However, the crew at NetEnt seems to have taken yet again the lazy road and opted to recycle one of its oldest slots in their portfolio. While they increased the potential multiplier in the bonus round, slot connoisseurs know very well that it is really tough to reach the upper levels with the highest multipliers. Well, I guess Steam Tower fans won’t be too unhappy about this semi-clone as it will give them an alternative when the steampunk is not in a good mood. The question remains whether the underwater goddess will let them plunder the ocean’s treasure.
