Dive deep into the astounding underwater world of the Sea Hunter and dare to explore the riches of depths in the Play'n GO's video slot launched in December 2017. This time, the software provider takes us to the bottom of the ocean where numerous creatures dwell and bring us profit. There are no playing card symbols for a change.
The developers have gone out of their way in designing Sea Hunter with paying attention to each detail. The colors and graphics are alluring with fish swimming around in the backdrop. If there is any downside to the slot machine, it is in its music score as it does not resonates with the general feel of the game.
Play Sea Hunter
All symbols are depicted as sea creatures. Low-paying ones are various fish species including blowfish, angelfish and clownfish, mid-paying symbols are represented by turtle and jellyfish while big guys like stingrays, octopi and whales award biggest prizes. However, the most lucrative symbol is Wild represented by a Naval mine. It substitutes all symbols and three of these on a payline pay 25x your bet.
How to Play
Resembling a classic slot, Sea Hunter features 3 reels and 5 fixed paylines. A bet value ranges between $0.05 to $100 per spin.
To win a prize, cover any of 5 paylines with symbols of a kind.
In this fast-paced game, chances of winning seem fairly high since the theoretical return to player is 96.64%.
Strategy & Tips
Since there is no Scatter symbol, Wild is the one you will want to see on the reels as often as possible, because it will not only replace any symbol but also make it easier to obtain winning combinations.
On both sides of reels there are cannons with meters that increase by one with each winning spin. A non-winning combo restarts the meters.
After 2 consecutive wins, Growth Gun is activated. The cannon shoots at one random symbol, upgrading it to the next value symbol. The Wild cannot be upgraded.
After 4 consecutive wins, the Sticky Shot feature is triggered and after one symbol is chosen, all symbols of a kind including Wild become sticky and award one re-spin.
Wild Warhead is enabled with 5 wins in a row. Up to 3 Wilds are fired onto the reels.
The fourth power-up is the Multiply Mortar feature requiring 6 wins in a row to reward you with one free spin guaranteed to pay a prize, with the possibility of multiplying it by up to 15x.
With Sea Hunter available on all devices and playing smoothly, you will want to keep trying to surface the treasures hidden in the ocean depths on the go, too. Bear in mind that although the RTP is fairly high, you will have to be armed with patience and a fair amount of luck. The payouts don’t come as often as expected and power-ups are not that easily achieved.
