Will this Splashtastic mobile slot make a splash in your wallet? Maybe? It’s a little unclear…
Before we into themes and features of this 3 reel slot machine by Reaslitic Gaming there is one thing we have to be honest about.
We did the math, and if you get the top winning symbol on all five reels you will win 250,000 in cash – which is 1,250 times your bet.
However, the game rules state that if you can’t win more than 50,000 in the free spin bonus round – which would only be 250 times your bet or getting the high paying symbols on one payline.
So is that a rule for the free spin rounds only? Or is that the top win of this Splashtastic slot overall? It’s very unclear, and as such, we automatically removed a star rating because it makes a big difference and we can’t tell you either way.
Ultimately, when you start playing on a 3 reel classic slot you know you get a simple game at heart, and that is generally reflected in the animations.
Hot Cross Bunnies slot by Realistic Gaming is a great example of a fun, classically drawn theme, that manages to subvert expectations.
This Splashtastic 3 reeler isn’t that; it’s basically a late Summer slot, released in October when it clearly would have been perfect in July sometime.
You’ve got all the fish from Finding Nemo present in an Aquarium surrounded by a pretty beach sandy scene that makes you think of family holidays.
With only 3 reels and 5 paylines, you know that your main chance of getting those wins is going to be by simply getting a three of a kind win.
And this slot game doesn’t try and change that, though it does add a nice free spin bonus round which has multipliers but in a strange way.
Basically, whenever the pearl scatter symbol shows up on reel 3, it will double your total free spin win at that point. So it’s kind of a multiplier, except it’s not the single win on screen, but all your free spin pot getting the multiplier.
If only we knew what that top win could look like, we may be tempted to come back. As it is, the wins we did manage to get were fairly minimal and there were very few surprises.
The Sea Hunter slot by Play’n GO is a far more attractive alternative, in our opinion.

Free Spin Bonus Round: When you get a sea symbol on reel 1, a pearl on reel 2, and another sea symbol on reel 3, but on an active payline, you'll trigger 10 free spins + 2x your bet instant win.
The free spin bonus play as you might expect, with the only little extra being that a pearl symbol on reel 3, at any point, will multiply your TOTAL free spins win by 2.
The most you can win during the free spins is 250 times your bet.
We really wanted to like this Splashtastic mobile game for what it was: a simple classic 3 reel machine with the occasional free spins.
But as we suspect that top win is actually closer to 250 times your bet, this is not a slot we can recommend without a lot of doubt in our heart.
We didn't see any wins higher than about 50x our bet, and they weren't that common, hence our suspicions.
In short, this is a classic slot with a classic theme and classically poor wins. Personally, we'd rather play on Bullseye which is closer to a fruit machine, but at least you know the wins are definitely there.
