Enter the world of Neptune, the Roman god of the water and the sea and the equivalent of the Greek god Poseidon, on the slot from Plank Gaming released under Microgaming. The mighty God will rise randomly from the raging waters to grant missing symbols for a win or the third scatter to trigger the free spins where you are guaranteed a win in each round, up to 5,000 times your stake.
Neptune Rising is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 10 fixed pay lines. Play with the gods on desktop, mobile and tablet from 0.10 to 50 credits. The high variance game has an RTP of 95.92%. The provider limited the maximum win potential to 250,000 credits.
A thunderous night at sea with dark clouds creating a harrowing scene will greet you when you open the game. The frameless reels impress with sharp HD graphics and stunning animations such as the lightning strike when Neptune makes his appearance. Loud thunders interrupt the otherwise heroic yet suspenseful sounding audio.
You will start off with the mundane card royals from 9 through to A, paying 10x to 12.5x your stake for a single five of a kind. It becomes more mythological on the high level with a treasure chest of gold coins, a dolphin, a sea horse, Siren and Neptune himself. Pays for hitting five on a line are also increasing to 25x to 75x your bet.
The wild symbol is Neptunes trident, substituting for all other symbols except scatters. It is the top-paying symbols with 900x your stake for a single five of a kind. Scatters are an ancient Roman coin with Neptunes counterfeit.
The Random Neptune Rising Feature
Neptune will randomly rise from the depth of the raging ocean on any losing spin to either grant the missing symbol that will lead to a win or will add the third scatter to trigger the free spins round. The feature cannot trigger during the bonus feature.
The Neptune Rising Free Spins
Three or more scatters on a spin will award 10 free spins which can be indefinitely retriggered. Additionally, you will win 5x, 75x and 750x times your total stake for three, four and five scatters respectively. Prepare for Neptune to appear with an earth-shattering thunder on every spin in the bonus round. He will reveal randomly stacked symbols on the front reels that will guarantee minimum two-symbol or three-symbol wins on every free spin. Since the chosen winning symbols are fully stacked, the wins are awarded for all 10 paylines, except when scatters are selected.
- Two-Reel Wins: 9, 10, Siren, Neptune, scatter and wild are picked for two symbol wins.
- Three-Reel Wins: J, Q, K, A, dolphin, treasure chest and sea horse are picked for three symbol wins.
More matching symbols landing on a pay line on the adjacent reels will further increase the win. This new pay mechanic will guarantee a minimum win in the free spins of 25x your bet, which is rather commendable.
The slot game from Plank Gaming to be released on Microgaming’s Quickfire platform could become quite the favourite. Although high variance, it promises a sizeable win in each bonus round. That is something we haven’t see so far. Yes, we have some slots like Raging Rhino from WMS where you have a 10x bet feature guarantee but that is nowhere near the minimum the Neptune Rising slot offers.
