Brand new from Genesis Gaming is this underwater-themed online slot which takes us deep beneath the ocean waves in the company of the eponymous Deep Sea Diver. While at first glance it may appear to be a fairly standard ocean-themed game, it includes an ‘oxygen tank’ feature which allows players to swap credits for features and it’s all explained below.
Deep Sea Diver is a five reel slot with three rows and twenty five fixed paylines; the player’s view is that of the diver – there’s a metallic frame around the reels and bottom-dwelling plants drifting in the background.
There are four high value symbols – a small fish with massive teeth, an eel, a jellyfish and a pearl/oyster combo; 9, 10, J, Q, K and A are the lower values.
The Victorian-style diving helmet is wild – not only does it substitute for all other symbols except the scatter, it will payout for just two appearing. The scatter is represented by the oxygen tank – this is key to the features.
Landing oxygen tanks will earn the player credits which can then be swapped for bonus features; the more tanks you land per spin, the more credits you earn and these are proportional to your stake:
- One Tank – 1 credit
- Two Tanks – 10 credits
- Three Tanks – 75 credits
- Four Tanks – 400 credits
- Five tanks – 2500 credits
When you’ve collected sufficient credits these can be swapped for one of three features. Once selected you can then spend variable amounts improving that bonus, for example more free spins and more multipliers. The following bonuses are available, all of which are free spins opportunities.:
- Reef Dive – Select the number of spins you want to purchase (up to 50) and the multiplier level (up to 20x).
- Wreck Dive – Select the number of spins you want to purchase (up to 20) and the number of extra wilds (up to 10).
- Deep Dive – Select the number of spins you want to purchase (up to 15) and the multiplier level (up to 20x). Additionally any wilds will freeze and remain in place for the remaining spins.
Deep Sea Diver Online Slot Playing Tips
The big question is when to cash in your credits and go for the features – we recommend trying out a variety of different strategies to see which suits your style of play bets. We’re inclined towards the Deep Dive because of the freezing wilds.
We like the level of player interactivity in Deep Sea Diver and this is a game which should provide plenty of longevity. The graphics are of a reasonably high quality and there’s a very high RTP of 97.00%.
