The Lost City
Many of us have undoubtedly heard of the ‘lost city’ in one capacity or another, with various television, film and literary depictions helping to fuel our imaginations. While the destination is wholly fictional, the magic it instills in us makes it such a wonderful place to envision, and so expectations are placed on any medium trying to capture that whimsical mystery. Thankfully, Playtech appear to have done a good job.
Their interface is graphically pleasing, without being ultra modern, allowing for a nice respite from overzealous HD imagery that tends to take away from the joy of gameplay. The choice of aesthetic isn’t as immersive as it could have been, but by using familiar symbols, such as the 10 and K, users feel right at home even if they’re used to playing more conventional slots.
Girl with the Pearl Earrings
The queen of these waters acts as the wild, but when she appears in a three or more grouping, the Pearl Bonus is activated, which can lead to a serious amount of treasure. There’s a slight catch though: you can only land her image on the second, third and fourth reels.
Also, users don’t engage in a traditional pick me selection, but rather the game picks nine clams for you, each of them opening to reveal pearls of different monetary amounts. It’s a simple bonus, which requires minimal interaction, but it can bring it decent wins for all who access it.
Playtech have been mightily generous in their gameplay, gifting users another bonus round to take advantage of during their playthroughs, the Atlantis Temple Bonus. This, again, is a pick me feature, but now you get to interact with the options provided; the table before you will give you some free games, multipliers and so on.
You’ll then enter into a free games period, which you’re able to win some extra rounds should you land the Poseidon symbol on the third reel. As we said about the last bonus, it’s not an all exclusive extravaganza, but it helps build up that final payout.
Paying the Toll
The cost of betting in this slot starts off rather low, at 0.25 credits, but soon skyrockets up to 500.00, however you have to bear in mind that the more you pay, the better your wins. This is one of those moments when you have to decide whether you want to risk lots of your funds for a small chance of getting mega bucks, or whether you want to play it safe. Personally, seeing as the maximum paying tile is still worth 500 credits when staking the low punt, we’d say keep to the money you can afford.
Atlantis Queen is a stunning slot machine, and one that gives a decent amount of variance without overwhelming users with its varied selection. The betting range is decent, and the controls are easy to navigate. All in all, a well rounded slot from the minds over at Playtech.
