Under the Sea
The bottom of the sea is full of mysteries. From long lost shipwrecks to weird and wonderful marine life, there is still so much for us land-dwelling humans to discover about the world underwater. And well, while we wouldn’t go as far as to suggest that there are actually golden dolphins swimming about down there but, then again, stranger things have been found in the deepest depths of the ocean.
This online slot machine from Lightning Box takes spinners on an adventure into the shallows of the sea to a beautiful coral reef that is populated by some stunning creatures. There are seahorses, tropical fish, sea turtles and manta rays. These marine specimens all appear on reels which are designed to be placed in an underwater scene, complete with bubbling animations and coral reef frame.
If we were to analyse this game from a purely visual perspective then we would have to say that the game isn’t exactly the most visually stunning underwater themed game out there. That isn’t to say that the slot machine isn’t nice to look at, but punters will certainly be more impressed by games such as Johnny the Octopus by Softswiss or Ariana by Microgaming software.
Dive for Treasure
Stellar Jackpots with Dolphin Gold may have 40 paylines but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it is a low variance slot machine. In fact, the game leans more to the middle volatility range, offering a decent payout rate without making players wait too long before they can celebrate a winning spin.
From the looks of the paytable, some spinners might be a little bit underwhelmed. That is because the slot machine jackpot in the base game is just 500x the value of the line bet, and that is awarded when five matching manta ray icons appear on one of the 40 paylines. After that, the next most valuable icon is much lower on the paytable scale with a full-payline payout of just 125x.
The minimum bet in this slot machine is 0.96 credits while the maximum possible wager in the game is a fairly hefty 120.00 credits.
Double Dolphin Wilds
The base game wins in this online video slot might not be the most exciting in the business but, then again, we have yet to talk about the game’s bonus feature. After all, the words “Stellar Jackpot” are included in the title!
First of all, this slot machine features a wild icon in the base game – depicted by a blue dolphin symbol – which will substitute for other icons on active paylines to complete winning combinations. This wild only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 and it will double the value of the wins whenever replaces a normal symbol.
This wild icon also has the potential to trigger a special round of free spins because whenever 6 or more appear, a series of up to 21 free games will be activated. It is during these free spins that players will finally catch a glimpse of the magnificent golden dolphin because this special wild symbol will appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 to create wins with double payouts.
This slot machine belongs to the Lightning Box Stellar Jackpots series, meaning that it offers three fixed jackpot prizes to lucky spinners. The bonus side game is triggered completely at random, taking punters from the bottom of the ocean to the cosmos of space where they must shoot down icons and advance through six levels to reach the jackpot level.
Out of This World Jackpots
Stellar Jackpots with Dolphin Gold is a captivating online slot machine which will take punters on an underwater adventure with some exciting gameplay features. Admittedly, the size of the base game prizes do seem a bit out of sync with the game’s volatility level but punters can hope for some double wild wins or even a chance to win one of three huge jackpots.
