Neptunes Quest Slot Machine
Try WMS Slots
WMS has a new slot release, inspired by Roman mythology. It tells the story of Neptune, the God of Freshwater and the Sea. The aquatic kingdom of this mythological God is beautifully portrayed in this slot by WMS. Neptune’s Quest will give you some splashing rewards, an engaging gameplay and wonderfully-crafted special features.
The first thing you will notice as soon as you load the game is that there is an unconventional reel layout. You will see that the first two reels are divided into two different areas, each containing four symbols. These eight individual positions count as individual reels, numbered 1 through 8. The last three large reels containing 6 symbols each are numbered 9, 10 and 11.
Although it sounds complicated, it is not really. You still need to form winning combos the same way as you do in other slot games, by matching symbols.
There is a Wild in the slot, presented with the Octopus symbol. The Octopus can give you the highest prize in this slot, in case you manage to land 5 Wilds on the reels. The Wilds also act as replacements for regular symbols in the formation of winning combos, however, they do not replace for Scatters.
The Scatter is presented with a photo of Neptune’s underwater world, which will only land on the three large reels. 3 Scatters can give you 5 Free Spins, however, you can access the Free Spins in another way, also. You will need to get 4 matching symbols on at least one set of the smaller reels, either on 1 through 4 or 5 through 8 reels.
In case you meet both requirements for triggering the Free Spins, you will, in fact, get 20 Free Spins plus you will get an enormous payout of 100x the stake for achieving that!
You will also see Expanding Wilds on the largest three reels, but only during the Free Spins.
Theme & Design
Theme-wise, the slot looks perfect. You will be mesmerized by Neptune’s underwater world, where mermaids, water bulls, fish, starfish, shells, octopuses and Tridents are present. You have a symbol representing all of them, however, you will also see playing card symbols, which will be the lowest-paying symbols.
In the background, you will see Neptune’s magical underwater world, depicted with perfection and in detail, just like in the ancient stories.
Wagering & Paylines
The number of paylines is unusual, as well, since there are 100 paylines involved in this slot. However, for those 100 paylines, you only have to pay half the coin amount, ergo 50 coins. Provided each coin is worth from $0.01 to $5.00, the minimum bet you can place is $0.50, while the maximum is $250.00.
Payout-wise, if you manage to trigger the Free Spins with the aid of Scatters and the matching symbols on the two smaller sets of reels simultaneously, and you manage to get the 100x the stake payout, you will get $25,000.00 for the highest bet. However, there are some other impressive rewards that can be won; in fact, you can win up to $125,000.00 in total! That is 500x the stake payout, which is quite amazing.
Neptune’s Quest is quite an impressive game by WMS, with beautifully-designed symbols and breath-taking graphics. The payouts are not bad at all, and the RTP is a dash nicer than the average one. The reel layout is interesting, and it breaks the monotony of the 5-reeled, 20-payline slots. WMS has really done a really good job with Neptune’s Quest and deserves all of our praises.
