Game Play in Neptune’s Gold Slots Takes Place Underwater
As Neptune was the Roman god of the sea, all the action in Neptune’s Gold slot game takes place deep in the ocean. The symbols are all in transparent boxes, and through the boxes we can see the clear blue waters of the sea bed, which is littered with the remains of an old flooded city. There are two tall columns, maybe from a destroyed temple that bank each side of the reels, and various other bits of cracked temple stones. Graphics and sound effects all enhance the underwater atmosphere of Neptune’s Gold.
Deep Sea Symbols
The lower value symbols are the classic playing cards from ten to Ace. All of them have different fish and various crustaceans curled around them, like eels and an octopus as well as fish. There is a Seahorse, a Dolphin, King Neptune himself and a beautiful Mermaid as well. The Wild symbol is an opened oyster shell containing a pink Pearl, and the Scatter is a Gold Dish.
The Wild can substitute for any other symbol in a winning combination except for the Scatter, and if it does contribute to this winning sequence it will multiply any wins by two. The Gold Dish Scatter gives a payout for even two appearing on the reels together. Two Scatters will give you one extra credit, and four will give you fifteen credits. If you are lucky enough to find five Scatters on the reels you will be awarded a huge two hundred credits to go towards your ultimate payout. All wins pay out reading from left to right.
Treasure Chests Lead To the Free Spins Round
The free spins bonus in Neptune’s Gold is activated by landing three or more of the Treasure Chest Bonus symbols anywhere on the reels. You then play a small extra game to find out how many free spins you will get, and what value multiplier.
You will be taken to a new screen and asked to pick one of the Treasure Chests that will reveal the number of your free spins. You will be given any number of free spins between four and seven. You then are taken to see the inside of the Treasure Chests, with the pile of golden treasures. You pick one out of six gold objects to find your multiplier, which will be between three and six times. The free spins bonus round then begins.
Slot Machine Details
Neptune’s Gold is a five reel slot game, with twenty pay lines, and is produced by the leading developer Amaya Gaming. You can bet from a penny up to about fifty dollars on each pay line. You can actually minimise your pay lines, as the Scatter symbols will still be active enough to give you the same chance of triggering the free spins bonus round. The top jackpot that can be won in Neptune’s Gold is over twelve thousand dollars, and is a pretty good win if you are lucky, but it does not appear very often. You will also find an Autoplay button on the lower right side of the screen, if you wish to set it for a required number of games.
