An Underwater Themed Pokie Featuring Wild Boosts and Free Spins
Ocean Magic is a pokie featuring all of the delights of life under the sea. A range of sea creatures swim about the reels, including whales, jellyfish, turtles, sea horses and different coloured starfish. Players will also be very interested by the presence of a treasure chest, which offers its own distinctive rewards. Bubbles play a major role in this pokie, these acting as wilds and can produce many more wilds around them. Enable the ‘bubble boost’ feature and these wild bubbles are everywhere.
Main features that make this game entertaining;
This IGT designed pokie features lively action on every spin, with those bubbles playing a major role. Here are the reasons to give IGT’s Ocean Magic a spin:
Throughout both the base game and the feature you’ll see a number of bubbles appearing randomly on the reels. These golden bubbles will turn into wilds when the reels stop spinning, substituting for any other symbol apart from the treasure chest bonus. The bubbles will float up one place on the reels for each subsequent spin until they float off the top of the reels.
Occasionally a bubble will float up and land on one of the ‘Ocean Magic’ logo symbols. This will give you a huge boost as all of the symbols attached above, below and diagonally will now become wild too, creating up to eight additional wilds – giving the opportunity of a mega win.
At any time, you can choose to turn on the ‘bubble boost’ option. This doubles the cost of a spin, but will add excitement to the game, as up to 7 additional bubbles can be added randomly at any time. With bubbles everywhere, you’re almost guaranteed a series of wins.
The main feature of the game is triggered by landing 3 or more treasure chest symbols anywhere on the reels. You’ll now head to a screen featuring floating bubbles and you’ll have 5, 10 or 20 picks of the bubbles based on activating the feature with 3, 4 or 5 treasure chests. Each pick at this point will award you either between 1 and 5 free spins, or 1 or 2 additional picks.
This feature will start with bubbles at the base of both reels 1 and 5, and can be retriggered at any time, up to a maximum of a huge 750 free spins.
Ocean Magic features a 5×4 reel set and an impressive 50 win-lines, ensuring the wins come thick and fast (especially with all of those wild bubbles). The highest paying symbol shows the title of the pokie and pays 300 coins for the maximum five in a row. This logo symbol is also the only one in the game which pays when you land just two in a row. The various sea creatures pay between 100 and 75 coins, with the starfish bringing up the rear, each paying a top prize of 35 coins.
The cost of each spin is 50 coins initially, rising to 100 coins when the ‘bubble boost’ is activated – certainly a recommended action, giving you the full Ocean Magic experience.
Ocean Magic plays out against a backdrop showing the bottom of the ocean. To the left of the scene you’ll see a sunken wreck of a boat, while reeds and corals move gently in the foreground. The scene moves from a deep blue at the bottom to a fiery orange at the top where the sun reflects off the top of the sea. The range of sea creatures on the reels adds life to the ocean floor, while an atmospheric water-fuelled soundtrack is the perfect accompaniment.
IGT have designed an engaging and original game in Ocean Magic. The pokie is all about those bubbles, as they rise up slowly on the reels, leaving wilds everywhere in their wake. Check out the big wild boosts when those bubbles land on the title symbol. With an exciting free spins round, where you’ll earn the number of spins in a pick me feature, there is a lot to like. Enable the ‘Bubble Burst’ option and this game will certainly float your boat!
