Is there anything else I should know about Neptune Rising slot?
The game uses coin symbols to deliver the free spins round.
Plank Gaming are new to use, but this game is very easy to play.
The control panel runs along the bottom of the screen, with, from left to right:
A menu control that opens up all of the game options, including the help and pay-table features.
Then the betting controls allow you to choose a bet amount.
A maximum bet button sites to the left of the spin feature, with an auto spin feature to the right. This feature allows you to set a number of spins.
At the right is the win window and finally your cash balance.
The pay table tells us that lower-paying symbols pay out from pairs upwards.
- They are 9s and 10s paying 2, 5, 25, and 100-times stake.
- Jacks and Queens pay 5, 25, and 100-times stake.
- Kings and Aces pay 10, 50, and 125-times stake.
- Treasure chests and dolphins pay 15, 75, and 250-times stake.
- Sea horses pay 20, 100, and 400-times stake.
- Finally, the sirens and the Neptune symbol pay 5, 25, 125, and 750-times stake.
- The scatter is a coin that also pays 2, 5, 75, and 750-times stake. Three scatters trigger the free spins round.
- Wilds come in the form of the Neptune trident and deliver the top prize, 9,000 coins, on top of a winning tree from 10, 250, and 2500.
The Neptune Rising feature triggers at random on any non-winning spin. Neptune comes up from the seas and turns some symbols into the symbols for a prize.
Neptune can also rise to deliver the final scatter to deliver free spins.
In the free spins round, Neptune rises at the start of the round putting a random symbol on all of reels 1 and 2, or 1, 2, and 3. This can also include scatters and you can retrigger the feature.
This is a nice game on a theme that players seem to enjoy and want more of.
Ancient Roman civilisation may have been awful in lots of ways – it was a slave society for starters – but we love to tap into their dreams and legends, and so we have Neptune, the sea god with his trident. Beautiful sirens, chests of treasure, dolphins and sea horses (that are literal horses!) complete the watery picture of this nicely designed set of symbols.
The game is very easy to understand and works very well on mobile screens because it has big, clear symbols and design.
The bonus rounds offer something a little bit different from the usual run of the mill bonus games. Yes, there are free spins, but chucking in a guaranteed win feature is something everyone is going to welcome. You’re going to love Neptune coming up from the depths in the base game too, with the possibility of many near-miss spins being converted to wins.
The top win isn’t world-shakingly big, but it’s generous for a low-to-medium variance game, which are relatively few and far between in the current market.
This game is a refreshing change from a producer who we haven’t seen much of yet, but if Neptune Rising is anything to go by then we’re going to hear much more from Plank Gaming (and their dull name) in future!
