MegaJackpots Ocean Belles — A New Progressive Slot by IGT
It’s summertime, and we are all looking for a way out of the busy city life. Ideally, we need to be somewhere where we can dip our toes into the ocean and enjoy the hot summer sun with a margarita in our hands. IGT understands that people like to play summer slots when it’s summer, so they made something that will not only give you that special holiday feeling but also reward you with big wins if you are lucky.
First of all, there is one thing that makes this slot very interesting, and that is the fact that it has a retro theme. Although the reels are set on a boat located in the middle of the ocean, the main character is actually a pin-up girl with a sailor cap. In other words, the game has that vintage 50’s feel to it that further adds to its entertainment.
Design-wise the game is a combination of contemporary and vintage. The animated ocean water in the background is a clear sign that IGT has some really good designers who keep up with the latest trends. Furthermore, animations on the reels are smooth, and the slot itself uses cutting-edge underlying technology. The symbols on the reels all have that vintage pin-up look that will make you feel like you are on a cruise in the 50s.
The game features a total of five reels and three rows — pretty much the standard set of reels which the majority of online slots offer. Some of the symbols that you can see on the reels include various kisses, globes, sailor caps, and more. Furthermore, the game also features low-paying symbols such as 10, J, Q, K, and A. Finally, there are two special symbols, which are belle Vicky and belle Betty.
One of the features that make this game stand out is the Synchronised Reels feature where you get a chance to create more combinations after one random reel gets stacked with symbols. Furthermore, the game also has a feature called Wild Stays 2 Pays, which is activated after you collect 2 Red or Golden Kiss symbols. After you get them on a single reel, that reel will turn into a wild for the next two spins, paving the way for you to win more money. The best thing about this feature is that it can happen to more than one reel at the same time.
There is also a bonus feature called Player Decision Free Spins, and it is triggered if you get three or more lighthouse scatters on the reels. You are presented with three options after that, with each option giving you a certain combination of random wild reels and free spins. For example, if you land three scatters you can choose five free spins with three random wild reels as the first option, 15 free spins with two random wild reels as the second, and 30 free spins with one random wild reel as the third option.
Finally, the game gives you an opportunity to take a shot at the progressive jackpot. The higher your bet is, the better the odds of you actually winning the slot. In order to win it, you need to get a total of 5 Golden Kisses, with one kiss in every reel. The minimum amount of money you can win in a progressive jackpot is $500,000. Therefore, if you are a summer lover who likes the pin-up era, make sure to give this slot a couple of spins and explore its features.
