Is the Deep Sea Magic slot the most beautiful game you’ve ever seen? Probably not. But will you love the two free spin bonuses within these 5 reels? Almost definitely yes.
It’s not that this Drop and Lock Deep Sea Magic mobile slot isn’t pretty to look at, just that it has that old fashioned look about it that will remind you of the Kronos slot game or even the Rainbow Riches game. Something created about a decade ago, rather than 2020.
Still, you can’t deny that this is a pretty Atlantic underwater casino slot that ticks all the boxes. The mermaid is the wild symbol and can come stacked 3 high to cover a whole reel.
Surrounding it are the sort of symbols you might expect to find; pearls, sea horses, coins, classical harps and Urns, all making you dream of long ago cities that have long submerged under the sea.
You have two types of scatters. The pyramid shows up on reels 2 to 4 only, and getting 3 is all it takes to trigger 6 free spins. However, these come stacked, meaning that if you catch more than 3 you get a bigger multiplier – a +1 multiplier for each scatter on screen.
You can expect to play with a minimum of 3x multiplier on 6 free spins, but we’ve caught 6x and 7x multiplier to know that more is well within the range.
Unfortunately, much like originals like the Kitty Glitter video slot or the Zeus slot review, a multiplier doesn’t always translate to big wins. This is the feature with the biggest wins, but it is by far the most unreliable.
We know that the multipliers are where you’ll get the bigger wins, but the Drop and Lock feature in this Deep Sea Magic slot is by far the most exciting bonus.
That’s because three crystal ball scatters will trigger 3 free re-spins of the reels. You need to catch as many crystal balls as you can, and they will reset if those symbols show up. If no more crystals pop up in 3 spins, the round ends. So far, so much like the Divine Fortune slot and so many others out there.
But no, something special happens here. The crystal symbols always drop to the bottom of the reel and lock into place. If you manage to get a whole line of symbols, you collect the instant cash win, and you get more space for more symbols. If you collect multiple lines in a row, you can get a x2 or x3 multiplier on the total prizes collected.
It’s a joy to watch and you can easily get 50x to 500x your bet on a good round. No, it won’t keep you playing, but it might be enough to make you dive for more.

Wild: The mermaid is the wild symbol and can appear single, double or triple in height. She only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. She substitutes for all symbols except the Crystal Ball and the Pyramid symbols.
Scatters and Free Spins: The pyramid is the scatter symbol and only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. Landing one or more pyramid symbols on all three reels will award you 6 free spins and you automatically win 5x your bet.
For every triggering scatter you catch, you also increase the multiplier of the free rounds by 1. So if you get all 3 reels covered in scatters, you'll get a 9x multipliers.
You can re-trigger the bonus games.
Drop and Lock Bonus: The crystal balls are also scatter symbols. Land three or more anywhere on the reels and you'll trigger a special bonus. You'll have 3 respins to catch as many blue or orange crystal balls. The blue ones have value of 2x your bet or less, the orange ones have value of over 2x your bet.
If you manage to land more crystal balls, you reset the spins to 3. If you manage to land a row of crystal balls, you clear that row and collect the cash prizes. You keep collecting cash prizes for as long as you keep clearing rows and getting more symbols.
Landing multiple complete rows in the same spin will multiply the total cash amount by the number of rows; so 2x or 3x.
Take 3 spins in a row where you get not more crystal balls and the feature ends.
Don't let the old fashioned look fool you, this Deep Sea Magic slot game still has plenty of magic left on these reels, especially if you catch some crystal balls along the way.
There is something wonderfully familiar about Williams slots; you know what you are going to get.
The base game may be a little slow and the graphics may look a little dated, but the two free spin features are hard-hitting enough to convert anyone to deep-sea diving.
Deep Sea Magic is a 5x3 reel slot with 50 paylines, wilds, and two types of scatters that trigger two types of free spins bonuses, one with multipliers and the other with instant cash rewards.
