Aquanauts Slot (Microgaming)

Aquanauts Slot (Microgaming) slotSlot machine developers don’t seem to get enough of the treasures theme, and so far, we have been treated to all manner of creativity, from searching for these treasures at the bottom of the ocean to scary adventures in the jungle.

Aquanauts is the latest slot to borrow from this concept, and as a Microgaming title, we expect to see lots of fun things, and great payments from the slot.

Let’s dive deeper and see what the developer has offered players this time around:

Game Set-Up

Aquanauts has a setup that comprises 5x5 reels, with up to 3,125 ways to win. The features inside include some great things like Rolling Reels, free spins, wilds and the Upsizer.

Betting and Prizes

For real money bets on Aquanauts, you need at least $0.30 per spin, while the maximum that can go to each spin is $21.

Aquanauts offer a very good payment potential, and you can expect to walk away with a top jackpot of up 50,000x stake.

It is a highly volatile slot machine though, but the developer has considered a decent RTP of 96.46%.

Aquanauts Slot Features

You start by forming winning combinations with the help of ways to win. This is done by landing at least 3 icons on adjacent reels (left to right). Once you form the winning combo, the cascading reels mechanic is triggered, and it comes in to remove the winning icons and drop new ones in their place.

This process is continuous and will only stop once there are no new wins. What I love most here is the fact that, with each roll, you get a multiplier boost of 1x. This means that the more the rolls, the higher the multiplier value. However, this resets at the end of that round.

You will get the Echo Rolls randomly, and these will come in and fill all existing positions (resulting from a win) with a single form of symbol. This can be a wild or a regular symbol, and you can get a win from it.

The W logo is the wild feature. This is the symbol that will assist you to form new combinations. You can get up to 5 wilds on different reels, and this way, they form their own combinations which pay up to 10x the stake.

Free spins are the major features of Aquanauts. Up to 8 free spins can be triggered by landing 3 scatters in view. At first you get a Wheel to spin, which then reveals the kind of modifiers that is available of use (Echo Rolls, multipliers, or more free spins).

With the help of The Upsizer option, you can purchase better modifiers for the other subsequent free spins.

Theme & Design

Aquanauts is a beautiful game that offers 50s-style comic book icons as part of its major symbols.

The symbols are in the images of divers, sharks, submarines, squids, and an octopus among others.


Aquanauts is a well-designed slot machine by Microgaming. I love the great features inside, not to forget the generous top payouts that make it interesting to play for real money.
