The Aquaman slot takes you deep into the underwater world, following the fortunes of Aquaman, the King of the lost city of Atlantis. This progressive slot is made by Sunfox Gaming, a Playtech subsidiary. This game comes from the DC Comics series, which also brought you slot titles such as Batman and Wonder Woman.

Main characteristics

Aquaman includes five reels, three rows and up to 243 ways to win. The game uses four displays in its game window, with the city of Atlantis as its backdrop. Aquaman and his wife, Princess Mera, crop up at various points in the game, accompanied by fitting aquatic sound effects. These two characters are the top symbols. The wild symbol of the game is a gold trident set on a red tile. There are also scatters which can appear on all reels – you’ll see them displaying ‘Free Games’.

Bonus features

There are a whole bunch of bonus features to look out for on Aquaman, and here we detail them. Ocean Rush Respins are triggered by filling reel four with the stacked Mera symbol. She then chooses one of the symbols on the reels and locks it, before repinning the reels. Any new symbols which match will then also lock and this carries on until there are none left.

Trident Wild Respins are set off when reel two is filled up with the stacked Aquaman symbol. The superhero then throws his trident on the reels, stabbing three wild symbols in the process. The reels then spin until a win is achieved. It is possible to trigger the Ocean Rush Respins and Trident Wild Respins features with the same spin.

Then there’s the DC Super Heroes Progressive Jackpot, which is split into the Mini, Minor, Major and Grand totals that you can see at the top of the screen. Entry to this jackpot game is random, and once achieved, you will win a prize after matching the required amount of colours in the ‘honeycomb’ pattern. Higher stakes give you a better chance of entering the DC Super Heroes Progressive Jackpot.

The verdict

While Aquaman may not look as flashy as some of the newest titles on the market in terms of its graphics, it stays faithful to the classic design of the DC Comics book, which gives it a timeless charm. If you play slots for the possibility of a massive win, you should note that Aquaman can pay out handsomely. If you strike it lucky with a win including a 4x multiplier from the wild and Aquaman, you could win 2,000 times what you staked. The two respin features – which pop up often – are another element which keeps the player immersed deep in the underwater world of Atlantis with Aquaman and Mera. Aquaman is a title with some attractive bonuses and the lure of many generous Aquaman symbols, unlimited free spins and multipliers which the ‘Free Games’ features offer. All in all, a nice addition to the Playtech range which can appeal to comic book lovers. review here
