Blueprint Gaming, a UK-based casino software developer and multi-platform gaming content supplier, has released Rise of Atlantis II, the sequel to the original hit, Rise of Atlantis, an Atlantis-themed slot featuring the supposedly submerged city of Atlantis because the Greek gods were displeased.

Mystical visual:

True to its name, the main theme of the slot is the aforementioned city of Atlantis and Poseidon, god of the sea. The game takes place in this sunken city, with Poseidon holding his powerful golden trident to the left of the reels. Additionally, the game may be played on any device.

The scatter pays mechanic is applied here, where wins are made when players make a combinations of 8 or more matching symbols anywhere on the reels on a grid containing 6 reels and 5 to 8 rows, which further triggers the cascading feature.

The basic low-value symbols are the purple, blue, red and green gems, while the high-value bonus symbols are the vase, pillar, crown, trident and Poseidon himself. A combination of 12 or more low-value symbols is worth between 2x and 8x, increasing to 10x to 50x a player’s bet for a combination of 12 or more high-value bonus symbols.

Moreover, the game has a mid-high volatility, a default RTP of 96.01% and a maximum win of 10,000x a player’s bet.

Slot features:

Cascade – when players make a winning combination, this feature is triggered. Upon activation, each symbol that was part of said winning combination will disappear from the reels, and then new ones will appear descending to fill the empty spaces. This feature stops when there are no more winning combinations in sight.

Rising Multipliers – throughout a base game spins, this feature may be randomly triggered. As soon as it is activated, the multiplier will float to a random position and if a winning combination is made with it in sight, a multiplier from x2 to x100 will be rewarded. However, when there are no cascading wins made, every rising multiplier will be added up and added to the total win.

As soon as a win is rewarded, the rising multiplier will climb one position till it finally exits the reels.

Poseidon’s Call – this is another feature that may be triggered randomly, but, throughout a winning cascade in the base game, causing the row height to increase by an extra row. However, the subsequent cascades have the opportunity to raise the height of the rows further, up to 8 rows.

If there are no more winning combinations, the reel setup gets is reset to 6×5, and if players trigger the bonus game while the rows are increased, the bonus game will begin from that rows height.

Free Spins – this one is triggered when players land 4 or more Scatters. However, they may get a certain number of free spins according to the number of Scatters they used to trigger the feature. Throughout the feature, if players hit 3, 4, 5 or 6 Scatters, they will receive 5, 7, 10 or 15 additional free spins, individually. There is also an option to re-randomize the row height throughout cascades with a maximum height of 8 rows and the progress will stay during the entire feature.

When players land increasing multipliers, their values will grow with every step taken, up to 1,000x, and when there are no more winning combinations, the multipliers are added up and applied to the total winnings.

Extra Bet – this one is triggered if players choose to pay 25% more of their wager size, which further improves the odds of them triggering the bonus game.

Bonus Buy – in order to trigger this feature, the player should want to get to the Free Spins immediately. There are several options:

  • 100x – bonus game activation;
  • 350x – the Ultimate Rise bonus game activation, meaning that only increased multipliers are active;
  • 850x – the Poseidon’s Fury bonus game activation, where players begin with a 6×8 grid and trigger only increased multipliers.
