Malta-headquartered content provider BGaming’s latest slot release, Big Atlantis Frenzy, can already be found in select online casino game lobbies, and according to its developer, it “captures the best mechanics of fishing slots” and is “enhanced with a line of features that increase players’ engagement.”
Optimized for mobile, the medium-high volatility video slot is playable on all devices, offering 96.70 percent RTP and a maximum win potential of up to 4,320x the stake.
The charming underwater adventure follows the launch of Penny Pelican and is the sequel to Dig Dig Digger, which was launched by BGaming in June 2021 and was created in collaboration with Belarusian and Russian actor and TV host, Vadim Galygin.
Here, players are whisked away to the mysterious sunken island of Atlantis in search of riches, and with help from an eccentric underworld archeologist, who they will recognize from last year’s mining-themed release, hope to uncover some big wins!
Game Symbols & Features:
Thanks to a unique “reel size change,” feature, players can choose a reel size from among 5×3, 5×4, and 5×5, and the number of paylines that correspond – up to 20 –, as well as the win potential of their bet. There is a buoy located above the reels that will allow players to select the number of rows they prefer. The feature is in addition to the traditional Wilds, Free Spins and Bonus Symbols.
The game’s symbols, which appear to be floating in crystal blue waters, include icy blue J-A royals as the lower value symbols, while a vase, a bejeweled pendant, a golden helmet, a large gemstone, and a pot of gold comprise the premiums. The latter is the highest paying symbol in the game and is worth 100x the bet for five-of-a-kind. Winning combinations are formed by landing three or more matching symbols on adjacent reels, starting from the leftmost reel.
Wilds & Special Fish:
There are four wild symbols and each one shows the game’s main character with a different look. Wilds can appear on any of the reels and they replace all symbols except for the Fish and Bonus symbols. The fishing boat serves as the game’s scatter symbol, and there are also special fish symbols.
Appearing in both the base game and the bonus round, the special fish symbols have a random value attached to them. And during base gameplay, if at least three of them land on a payline, their total sum will be awarded.
Free Spins Feature:
Activating the Free Spins feature happens by landing three or more scatter symbols on a payline during the same spin. The number of free spins awarded depends on the number of triggering scatters. During this round, fish symbols can appear on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5 and if they appear with a wild symbol, their sum is collected and paid out.
For every fourth wild symbol that lands on the reels, an additional 10 free spins will be awarded, as well as a multiplier of x2, x3, and x10, respectively.
Depending on the jurisdiction, the Bonus Buy feature can be utilized by players for a cost of 50x the stake. Choosing this option directly activates the free spins feature without having to wait for the three scatter symbols to land.
Commenting on the new release, Kate Puteiko, BGaming’s Product Marketing Lead, said they want their slots to be “charged with joy” and are “constantly working on new types of entertainment” for their players.
“The Big Atlantis Frenzy is an example of such an approach, it is the perfect mix of fun and outstanding features.”
As mentioned, players are already familiar with the archeologist character from the 2021 Dig Dig Digger online slot, the protagonist, however, was modified for Big Atlantis Frenzy into an eccentric marine world explorer. The main characters from the two games were both created and voiced in partnership with the Eastern European showman, Vadim Galygin, as noted.
The performer helps to make the game more engaging as he cheers players on, speaking in the manner of the French marine explorer, inventor, filmmaker, and conservationist, Jacques-Yves Cousteau.
With his own thoughts on the second collaboration, Galygin said…
“The whole team, the designers, the analytics, and the developers are all on the same wavelength, and the synergy of this collaboration is fantastic. I was happy to join the team again and impressed by BGaming’s approach to players’ entertainment.”
According to the provider, fans can expect another big launch in July via an updated version of the December 2020 hit Lucky Lady Moon that has been enhanced with Australian developer Big Time Gaming‘s (BTG) popular Megaways mechanic.
