Wacky Waters Pokie Review
There is more than a hint of resemblance to some cartoon classics in this latest underwater themed pokie from Playtech. A suggestion of Spongebob here and a nuance of Nemo there, although the game itself is not suggesting that it has any connection to either. Anyway, this 5 reel game with (only) 15 paylines offers plenty of fishy fun beneath the waves.
This game is fully mobile ready from the get-go, and in fact uses touch screen technology to enhance some areas of game play, but we will get to that a little bit later. Apart from the cute animation and boppy soundtrack this low variance pokie features a few nice little bonus games which always serve to liven up proceedings.
About The Game
Coins Range:0.01 to 2.00
Fee Spins/Multiplier Better:No
Puffin’ Up Feature: the wild symbols in this game take the form of one of the less celebrated underwater dwellers: the Blowfish. Apart from making an appearance as a substitute for regular symbols, there is also a little extra bonus on offer here from Playtech.
If the blowfish lands on the centre reel then he will expand and ‘pop’ to release between one and six blowfish across the reels. If you are playing on a smart phone you get to blow up the blowfish by touching him with your finger, which gives a more interactive feel to the game even if it doesn’t really change the outcome.
Cash Crab Feature: again the game manages to avoid the typical ocean dwellers by selecting the humble Hermit Crab as the scatter symbol. When three of these timid creatures show up anywhere on the reels you get to pick one to reveal a cash bonus.
There are 2 picks if you find 4 crabs and 3 picks if all 5 show up across the reels. You can win a maximum prize of up to 100 times your bet, so make your choice wisely.
Albert’s Underwater Bonus: when three anchors appear on rows 1, 3 and 5 then you have unlocked this bonus mini game. Choose one of three paths for Albert (that’s the name of the blowfish mentioned above, by the way) to swim up by moving the anchor from side to side. As our hero ascends he can pick up various multipliers, free games and extra wilds before he runs out of air.
This is a top quality pokie from Playtech, with its cute animations the basis for a fun game with lots of wins across the reels. The bonus games and multiplying wild symbols allow you to find some pretty big wins, and as the game was designed with mobile and desktop equally in mind it works beautifully on both. Take a deep breath and head under the sea for some aquatic entertainment.
