The long-lost city of Atlantis is the inspiration behind the IGT video slot titled King of Atlantis. In this online slot, you have two bonus features of interest and they include Poseidon Free Spins and a Wilds feature that is tied to your staked amount. Continue reading the review to learn more about how the Wild feature works.
This online slot game is base on the lost sunken city of Atlantis, so all the action takes place underwater. There is a 5×5 reel structure with a total of 40 paylines in King of Atlantis. In the background is a picture of the seabed where lots of gold coins can be seen spread all around.
The borders of the reel set have a golden frame and the symbols on the results are theme-related. These symbols include a dolphin, a seashell and a carrot top mermaid. Other symbols are an amphora, a mysterious stone, a crown, a harp and a ring. For the Wild icon, you have Poseidon and this Wild can be seen on reels 2 and 4 only.
Whenever the Wild appears on these reels it will displace the symbols found there to help with earning you a combo win. However, there is a Scatter symbol represented by a Trident which the Poseidon Wild cannot displace. The Poseidon Wild is as wide as 2 reels so it will actually appear on reels 2 and 3 as well as 4 and 5.
Land the Trident Scatter symbol on the 1st reel and then Poseidon Wilds on other positions on the reel set to activate the Poseidon Free Spins feature. You will earn 8 free spins while the Poseidon Wild symbols involved in activating the feature will be frozen in their spot for the duration of the free spins. However, the free spins feature cannot be reactivated.
In King of Atlantis, you can increase the number of Poseidon Wilds you have on the reels. This will happen when you increase your stake in the game. Initially you begin with 20 Poseidon Wilds. However, by increasing your bet by as much as 25 coins there will be 40 Wilds added to the reels which will rise to 60 Poseidon Wilds eventually.
The Wild symbols of King of Atlantis play a vital role in ensuring that you land combo wins and boost your payouts. This slot has rich graphics and very nice underwater sound effects.
