The Lord of the Ocean slot game is one of the oldest and most popular from the developer Novoline. The well-known game principle of Book of Ra is used here in an underwater world. As a classic among the slots of Novoline, Lord of the Ocean should of course not be missing in any online casino where the games of Novoline are offered. The game has a payout ratio of 95.10%, which is rather in the middle range for an online slot.
In essence, the gameplay of Lord of the Ocean online slot does not differ from that of the cult game Book of Ra, which is also known to come from the house of Novoline. Lord of the Ocean is played on five reels and up to ten variably adjustable paylines. Depending on the symbol, at least two or three identical symbols must appear from left to right on an active payline in order to achieve a win in this game.
The scatter and wild symbol in this slot is represented by a kind of spinning disk and combines both functions. When at least three of these discs appear anywhere on the screen, 10 free spins begin. Before the free spins, a random bonus symbol is selected. This symbol can expand completely on any reel it appears on during the Free Spins. The requirement for this is to see the minimum number of the symbol that would be needed for a regular win. If this is true, the bonus symbol expands and all paylines generate the corresponding line win. More triggering scatters do not provide for winning more free spins, but they do provide for a higher scatter win. The free spins can be extended as many times as you want by appearing at least three more scatters, while retaining the bonus symbol selected at the beginning.
There are no other features in Lord of the Ocean slot machine. However, winnings can be wagered in the card risk. In this, you have to predict whether the next card drawn at random will be a red or a black one. If the prediction is correct, the wagered risk amount is doubled. If not, the amount is wiped out and the card risk is ended. The maximum amount that can be bet in card risk is 500 times the total bet.
Since the paylines in this slot can be set completely freely, there are quite flexible betting options. It must be played with at least one and can be played with a maximum of ten paylines. This results in a minimum bet per game of €0.04. The maximum bet per spin amounts to 100€.
Unsurprisingly, the best paying symbol is the ruler of the seas, Poseidon (or Neptune, depending on which mythology you prefer) himself. If he is seen five times in a row on any of the activated paylines, he generates a win of 5,0000 times the line bet.
The female sea creature, perhaps meant to represent his daughter or a mermaid, when also appearing five times on an active payline, generates 2,000 times the bet per line as a win. The same prize is awarded to the player if five scatters appear anywhere in the game. With the other two picture symbols, the winnings are not quite as high. Nevertheless, both the sunken treasure chest and the weathered statue generate 750 times the bet per line as winnings when they appear five times.
Unfortunately, the playing card symbols also used for this slot provide significantly lower wins for full lines. For A and K, it is 150 times the line bet that is awarded as a win. With Q, J and 10, on the other hand, it is only 100 times the line bet that is generated as a win.
Despite the already very high maximum winnings in the base game, the free spins can provide significantly higher winnings. Since the selected bonus symbol expands in them, full screens are made possible. A full screen with the ruler of the seas thus results in a maximum win per spin of 5,000 times the total bet in free spins.
Online casinos, which offer their players slots like Lord of the Ocean, usually also offer a whole range of online casino payment options. Among the best-known, besides the credit card, are probably Skrill and bank transfer.
The slot machine is quite rightly one of the most popular games from Novoline. Although the gameplay is the same as Book of Ra, the thematic design and the design of the free spins create variety. The high maximum winnings provide lasting excitement. It is particularly pleasing that the paylines can be selected variably and the bets can be placed up to a high maximum. This ensures gaming fun, both for beginners and high-rollers. From me, an absolute recommendation for all fans of Novoline slots. The web adaptation of Lord of the Ocean is very well done.
