Under the Waves from 1x2 Gaming is a playful, under-the-sea themed slot that showcases all sorts of sea creatures along with a few classic features like wilds, free spins, and a pick-me bonus round. While the game doesn’t come with super-sophisticated features or an adventure-filled storyline, it offers plain, ol’ fashioned fun, with a soundtrack that’s both serene and enchanting.
Under the Waves is a 5-reel, 20-payline game that’s playable on all devices. Bets range from $.20 to $100 per spin and the RTP is 96%.
Symbols include fish, whales, sea turtles, a treasure chest bonus, a shipwreck scatter, and a mermaid wild. If you manage to fill the reels with smiling shark symbols, the reward will be the max win of the game, 1,000 times your stake per spin.
When at least 3 scatters land on the reels, players are awarded between 10 and 18 free spins, depending on how many scatters landed. If a wild lands during the free spins, it becomes sticky and locks into place for the remaining free spins.
This classic pick-me bonus round is triggered when 3 or more treasure chest scatters land on the same spin. Players can then pick from a selection of treasure chests, which will reveal cash and/or prizes. The more scatters that land during the triggering spin, the more treasure chests players will get to pick.
Under the Waves from 1x2 Gaming is a simple slot in an age when every developer is trying to outdo the other in terms of bells and whistles. For recreational players and newbies, it offers good entertainment value, and a potential max win of 1000x the stake isn’t too bad of a takeaway. Under the Waves can be played at 1x2 Gaming casinos, online and on mobile.
