Lord of the Ocean Review
Released by the developers at Novomatic/Greentube, Lord of the Ocean is a highly volatile slot designed to fit the popular 5×3 reel format with 10 flexible paylines. You can choose how many paylines you want to play, but it’s probably best to bet on all of them for maximum effect.
If you’re unfamiliar with Novomatic games featuring expanding symbols, this mythology-themed online game will be the perfect introduction. Inspired by the mighty Greek god of the sea, the game comes filled with artful symbols depicting underwater creatures. The question is, will you dare to dip your toes into the murky waters? Keep reading our slot review to find out how mermaids, Poseidon and a gateway into the underworld will help you find those sunken riches.

Lord of the Ocean Bonus Features
Lord of the Ocean doesn’t have that many bonus rounds, but it does come with a special feature that could bring you some otherworldly wins. The only way to reach those wins is to spin the reels so, get ready to follow mermaids into the deep waters to open the gate into Poseidon’s mighty kingdom.
Wilds and Scatters
Hitting 3 portal looking gate symbols anywhere on the reels in the base game will take you through to the next level of the game and into the free spins bonus round. Landing 3, 4 or 5 gate scatters will also give you a nice payout of 2x, 20x and 200x your stake respectively.
But it’s not just the scatter capabilities that this mystic gateway holds. It also has a wild capacity and will substitute for all symbols except scatters when forming winning lines.
When 3 gate scatters strike the reels at the same time, 10 free spins are awarded to you at the start of the bonus round, so you have more than enough chances to hit some big wins. In addition to this, a special symbol is chosen to emerge as an expanding one.
When you land it on the reels during the free spins game, it will increase 3 symbols high to cover an entire reel and will count as three symbols for bigger wins. And the best thing is they don’t have to land on adjacent positions to be considered a winning combination.
Finally, you can retrigger the entire free games feature simply by landing more gate scatter/wild symbols during the free spins bonus round.
Lord of the Ocean Jackpot
We ran out of breath trying to fish out a jackpot lost somewhere deep in the ocean. But we found out that you can still win pretty big here, up to 5,000x your stake, if Poseidon allows you. You’ll need to fill the reels with 5 symbols of the Lord of the Ocean to reach the game’s max win.
RTP and Volatility
Lord of the Ocean is highly volatile, and that’s a good thing. You might need to hold your breath for a little while, but it will be worth it once those big wins surface from the water. It’s just a shame about the average RTP set at 95.10%.
