Sub-Mariner is a 5 reel (progressive), 25-payline, Cryptologic Video Slot. It comes with a wildSymbol, scatter symbol, multiplier, free spin and has a maximum jackpot win of $100,000.
I rather fear that you are revealing your age a bit if you admit to having read Sub-Mariner in your youth. I am going to pretend not to know that Sub-Mariner's name is Prince Namor, or that he hangs out with the All-Winners Squad, or that I ever read comics during a time when marketing departments thought that calling something the All-Winners Squad was a good idea.
No, instead I will pretend that I found out on Wikipedia rather than through first hand knowledge that the Sub-Mariner rules Atlantis. Because this was all before my time. Did they even have comics back then? Really? Good heavens.
Regardless of the origins Cryptologic have put together a truly beautiful game here. The theme is nautical, the background is full of slowly undulating waves with lots of ships in the distance, and the titular Sub-Mariner himself make several appearances gliding through the water as you play the game.
Cryptologic's Sub-Mariner is a game where it's possible to earn quite a bit of money, not only because the top combinations pay out large numbers of coins, but because the game is linked to 3 progressive jackpots.
The first, called the Hero jackpot, begin seeding at $50. The second, called the Super Hero jackpot, begin seeding at $500, and the third, called the Marvel Hero jackpot, begin seeding at $5,000.
None of these progressive jackpots have a theoretical top end, and they're all networked across all instances of Sub-Mariner at all Cryptologic casinos across the world. You could trigger one of these progressive jackpot at any time, even on a spin that doesn't hit a winning combination.
The game itself is a five reel video slot title that pays out on 25 different lines. You control the number of active pay lines using the handy up and down buttons at the bottom of the screen.
The Sub-Mariner is the Wild symbol. His function is to complete any winning combination that he finds himself part of, and fantastically, he doubles the winnings as well. Incidentally, if three or more Sub-Mariners appear anywhere on the reels, you earn five free spins with all winnings doubled.
You can play Sub-Mariner for as little as a penny for as much as $5. The top combination is worth 5,000 coins, which at maximum bet is worth $25,000.
