Deep Blue HD is a 5 reel (non-progressive), 9-payline, Viaden Video Slot. It comes with a wildSymbol, scatter symbol, multiplier, free spin and has a maximum jackpot win of $4,500.
Deep Blue is an underwater inspired video slot from Viaden Gaming, a specialist outfit which is known for good value slots. Not only does this one offer great value but also includes wild graphics, free spins, scatters and the chance to win 9,000 coins in one fell swoop.
As you’d expect this slot is set underwater and as such benefits from a bespoke reel casing which gives a deep sea atmosphere. The top of the slots background is the surface of the ocean, whilst the bottom is the seabed complete with kelp and bubbles which flow to the surface. The designers have utilized these air bubbles along the fringe of the reels as line markers and the buttons have been given an iron-clad, submarine inspired, look.
Reel icons have also been given a bespoke appearance to fit in with the aquatic theme. They include 9, 10, J, Q, K, A, jellyfish, crab, seahorse, angelfish, dolphin and pearl icons which can appear on any reel.
Other Viaden slots typically offer penny bets whilst this one ups the stakes a little with its 0.10 to £/$/€4.50 betting range. These are setup using lines and bet per line options located beneath the reels.
The Dolphin graphic has dual responsibilities on the Deep Blue Slot. Predominately it is used as a wild symbol, acting as a substitute for all other symbols except the scatter. It doubles any wins it contributes to and pays out prizes with combinations of two or more icons on an active payline. The 9,000 coin jackpot is awarded if five Dolphin icons appear on an active payline.
Deep Blue scatter icons pay out 2, 5, 20 or 500 times your total bet when 2, 3, 4 or 5 icons appear on the reels. It also awards 15 free spins when at least three are present, during these free spins all wins are tripled. This dual function makes scatters much more useful on this slot than many of its competitors.
This is an ideal slot for low to mid stakes gamblers, if you are after a penny slot then you’d be better off considering some of the other Viaden Slots which offer a lower betting range.
