Ocean's Treasure: Slot Overview

It is NetEnt’s turn to take players beneath the ocean's surface to a mystical aquatic kingdom. Down there, players have the chance to uncover treasure courtesy of a multi-level bonus game with ever-increasing rewards. Visually, it holds its own, but eagle-eyed players might notice a strong similarity with an older NetEnt slot called Steam Tower (2015). They are close in both stats and features, though not quite full-on clones.

When it comes to theme and looks, the two slots are apples and oranges. Picture Atlantis in the Aquaman story, and you will have a good idea of what to expect. This is a full-blown underwater kingdom of statues, seaweed, gardens, and tentacled beasts. Down here there is no Aquaman though. This is the domain of trident bearing Nereid's, or nymphs of the sea, who help string wins together.


NetEnt has a reputation for producing good looking slots and Ocean's Treasure is another one of them. Fantasy creatures abound in this kingdom. An ominous-looking creature (a Kraken?) rests above the grid, and two benign guardians guard the 5 reel, 3 row game area. The overall audiovisual effect is great, atmospheric and makes you want to play. Before anything, however, players need to select a bet which starts at 15 p/c per spin and moves up in unusual increments to a maximum of £/€300 a pop.

The rules on the sea bed are straight forward. Form a combination of three or more matching symbols on the 15 paylines to trigger a payout. The paytable is part classic, part new. J-A royals represent the low pays and are decked out with underwater decorations like seaweed. A small touch, but it makes them fit in perfectly. The high pays, meanwhile, are nautical icons such as keys, compasses, and messages in bottles. The gold and diamond lump is the premium symbol which returns 100 times the stake for five of a kind. The Nereid's are wild which can substitute for any other pay symbol. It only appears during the main game and comes in 1x3 size which can cover a full reel. There is also another 1x1 trident wild which can substitute for pay symbols and comes into its own during free spins.


The math model pumping life into the game has a medium volatility and an RTP of 95.99%. Both stats are similar to that found with Steam Tower, though with an RTP setting slightly lower than what we're used to from NetEnt. When it comes to features, the two slots are comparable though Ocean’s Treasure has had its free spins round padded out with larger rewards.


Ocean's Treasure: Slot Features

Regarding Ocean’s Treasure, it does look fantastic – the Norse mythology theme takes you under the ocean. With an inspiring and enchanting soundtrack, the reels are encased by warriors and octopus tentacles. Symbols include A, K, Q and J royals – you’ll also see keys, compasses, scrolls inside bottles as well as precious stones.


The latter pays 6, 35 or 100 x stake for 3, 4 or 5 in combination. The trident symbol is the regular wild and appears in both the base game and Free Spins feature – it replaces all symbols except the scatters. There is also the stacked wild, represented by Sigyn (goddess and wife of Loki) which only appears in the base game.



Free Spins feature

Ocean’s Treasure comes with a Free Spins feature – this is triggered when you get 3 treasure chest scatter symbols anywhere on reels 1, 3 and 5 simultaneously. With 10 free spins awarded, you will begin on level 1 with a 3x multiplier.


If 1 or more regular wilds appears on the reels during the feature, the free spins tally increases by 2. Furthermore, a Level Meter is filled by half – do this again to advance to the next level. There are 5 levels in total with the multiplier increasing each time:

Level 1: 3x multiplier
Level 2: 5x multiplier
Level 3: 7x multiplier
Level 4: 9x multiplier
Level 5: 12x multiplier


Furthermore, you can see wilds to give you 2 additional free spins each time – there’s up to 102 free spins to be earned in total. Also, if you reach level 5, the kraken will give you a bonus is 100 times your stake.


Ocean’s Treasure: Slot Verdict
Ocean's Treasure is a rather conventional slot. It's a straight forward, simple and plays with a quick pace. Moreover, it looks great, has a dramatic soundtrack, and decent potential. It might not be as highly volatile as hardcore players might prefer, but it is still capable of serving up some tense action. While Ocean's Treasure may not exactly be cutting edge, there is nothing off-putting about it either.


Directly comparing the two, Ocean's Treasure offers bigger multipliers and greater overall rewards, yet Steam Tower remains the more immersive slot. While the design team has done a great job in creating an underwater world, Steam Tower wins out in the atmospheric stakes. Still, Ocean's Treasure is an entertaining slot. It feels more volatile and players can potential pick up rewards of 1,200 times the stake per single spin with the help of the x12 multiplier. Which one you prefer will ultimately come down to taste but there is one very important factor to consider and that is RTP - Ocean's Treasure comes with a 95.99% RTP while Steam Tower comes with a significantly more generous setting of 97.04%.


Overall, Ocean's Treasure is not a bad game and offers high build quality along with decent features. The base game isn't the most exciting, though stacked wilds do help when they drop. With that said, we do encourage you to have a look at Steam Tower if you haven't already. It may not be quite as volatile, but with a much higher RTP it's mathematically superior.
