Goofy-looking fish and a wide-eyed blonde mermaid populate the watery reels of Betsoft’s online slot game Under the Sea. If you think the game’s name innocently references “The Little Mermaid,” think again: This one is at very least a direct homage. (We’re pretty sure the Nemo-resembling clownfish is no coincidence, either.)
Said underwater nymph – nameless in this online slot – is naturally the highest-paying symbol in the base game, with 400x the line bet the prize when lining up five of these girls on an active payline.
Happily, Under the Sea includes three special symbols. The oyster-and-pearl serves as the wild, offering between 2x and 8x bonus when making up winning combinations. The sunken ship symbol gets the player between eight and 15 free spins when at least three appear on a bet-upon ‘line.
Finally, the treasure chest is a bonus symbol, entering the player into the “Pick a Chest” bonus round. (No, you can’t choose the blonde heroine’s bikinied bodice…) This one’s a “pick ‘em”-style game that awards coinage in the hundreds to thousands. Can you say “booty”?
