The treasure hiding under this ocean is well guarded by the mermaid. However, Under The Sea mobile slot is all about the under water adventure far more than the treasure.
Let’s start with everything that doesn’t work about Under the Sea slot from BetSoft. It has a very low return to player rate at 93.35% for a low variance slot, in comparison with so many of the others out there (BetSoft’s own After Night Falls is 97% after all).
So does that mean that this Under the Sea slot game has big wins hiding in it’s 5 reels perhaps? Are there 8x multipliers in the free spins maybe? Some way to get big wins? Well yes and no. Yes, in that if you get three wilds to finish a winning payline you get an 8x multiplier. No, in that the chances of that happening are as likely as getting 5 mermaid symbols in a row. Which is what you’ll be looking for to get the big wins in this underwater slot.
Ok, so the chances of a big win are slim, but at least this slots bonus features come often right? We are constantly seeing free spins and click me features all over the reels right?
Nope. Sorry. It takes a good 100 spins at least to get free spins and the click me feature is like a ghost in a sea of reels. We know it exists because we saw it floating by once and the legends can’t be wrong. But we wouldn’t want to testify in court.
Couple of reasons actually. Despite the high house edge, this sea slot pretty much does what it says on the tin. It gives lots of little wins and stretches your budget. The wilds will help you through the periods of not much happening on the fishy 5 reels, as they do come with some great multipliers. We did end up about 20% up from our starting budget at one point, and though we kept on playing, we suggest that if you do the same, you should walk away satisfied.
Under the Sea mobile slot is not meant to get you big wins. The free spins round, when it came, barely gave us 10x our bet at the best of times. Same with the click me feature.
The second reason is that we like the theme. We’ve always been suckers for a beautiful underwater theme, and no one does pretty quite like Betsoft slots. Every character is well thought out and the different colours make them easy and simple to differentiate, allowing you to anticipate wins. It played well on every device, from Android to iPhones, and we even found that that the loading time for this game and it’s bonus rounds wasn’t as heavy as so many of the other 3D slot games from the same provider.
Let’s be honest, it’s not one that we will be going back to often we suspect. But for those of you looking for a little low risk fun… well there is still better out there, but this one is not half bad.

Wild Symbols: You'll be grateful for this pearl symbol far more than any diamond in the world. More often than not, it will come all alone, giving you a decent 2x multiplier when it replaces any symbol on the reels on a winning payline (except scatter and bonus symbols).
However, we've seen come as a pair on a winning payline and given us 4x our bet, which is when we started to pay attention. If you get three on a payline you'll get 8x your bet, though we've not hit it, so we suspect it's more than a little difficult.
Scatters and Free Spins: Get three sunken scattered ships anywhere on the five reels and you'll trigger 8 free spins. This is 99% of the free spins you'll get. If you are lucky enough to get 4 scatter symbols you'll win 12 free spins and 5 scatter symbols will get you 15 free spins. The payout for any wins are doubled, but we rarely walked away with anything more satisfying than about 10x our bet.
Treasure Chest Bonus Round: A simple click me feature triggered by 3 bonus chest symbols, considering how long it took us to find it, you'd think it was hiding some real sunken treasure. However, it doesn't and much like the free spins bonus round, you'll be walking away with about 10x your bet on most occasions. It's very pretty though, with a choice of six chest which you keep on clicking until you hit the collect sign.
It's not the most exciting mobile slot of it's kind, but it's pretty, works well and gives you enough wins back that you'll be able to play for a while. Forget the special features, you'll be looking out for only two symbols in Under the Sea mobile slot; the pearl wild and the blonde mermaid.
