Get out your diving gear because online casino software developer Pragmatic Play is taking us on an aquatic adventure in its latest title, Wild Depths, where colorful, wide-eyed fish swim carefree among all sorts of coral deep beneath the sea, and Extra Spins, Wilds and Scatters help provide wins of up to 5000X the bet!
Set in a scene reminiscent of Pixar’s 2003 hit Finding Nemo, this 5-reel, 4-row video slot has 40 paylines and a higher than average RTP of 96.48 percent. The new game is playable on desktops, mobiles and notepads, and winning combinations are formed by landing at least three matching symbols on adjacent reels starting from the far left.
Fish & seashells:
The game’s lower paying symbols include 10, J, Q, K and A card icons. Landing five matching symbols is worth between 1x – 1.5x the bet. Medium paying symbols comprise a red starfish, purple seashell and a green seashell and landing five-of-a-kind pays between 2.5x and 5x the bet. Blue, yellow and orange fish are the higher pays and landing five matching symbols is worth between 7.5x and 20x the bet.
In order to land larger catches in Wild Depth, you’ll need the Bubble, which serves as the game’s Wild and appears on every reel sans the first reel and substitutes for all symbols except for the clam with giant pearl Scatter. Wilds help to complete winning paylines and come with a x2 multiplier, which is applied to each winning combination they are part of. If a win includes more than one wild, multiplier values multiply between each other.
Courtesy of the Roaming Wilds feature, creating a win with one or more wild symbols see them remain on the reels after wins. The symbols float up to the next position on each subsequent spin until they float away.
As mentioned above, the Scatter is a clam with a giant pearl, and in the base game if you land three of them you will activate the Extra Spins round, as well as 6, 9, or 12 Extra Spins.
What’s more, if you hit at least three Scatters during the Extra Spins round, it will cause an instant payout and reactivate the feature, which will see players provided with five additional Extra Spins. You can also trigger a respin by landing a Wild symbol during Extra Spins.
Yossi Barzely, Chief Business Development Officer for Pragmatic Play, explains via company news that as one of their first slot releases of 2022, they wanted to make Wild Depths “as inclusive of an experience as possible” for a variety of player types.
“The jovial underwater theme is reinforced by a rich collection of exciting features, each enabling the player to land a big catch.”
The new underwater adventure closely follows the addition of new Baccarat and Speed Baccarat tables to the multi-product content provider’s live casino baccarat offering and its comprehensive content deal with Latin American operator Locosbet.
Pragmatic Play has now released two new slot titles in the New Year, with Magician’s Secret launching earlier in January. Both of the new games enhance an already impressive portfolio of more than 200 HTML5 slots including such hits as Crystal Caverns Megaways, Smuggler’s Cove, and the wildly popular John Hunter and Big Bass Bonanza series.
Next up for the hard-working developer is Gold Party, which is due to drop on January 20th!
