Return to the time of vintage glamour with the lovely ladies in MegaJackpots Ocean Belles – an IGT jackpot slot with 5 reels and 75 paylines. Red or Golden Kiss symbols are collected to give you wild reels – there’s also free spins where you choose to play with up to 3 random wild reels on each free spin. With large stacks of symbols, it comes with a progressive jackpot which is guaranteed to pay you half a million at least.
MegaJackpots Ocean Belles is a 5 reel, 75 payline progressive jackpot slot from IGT that can be played from 75p to £750 a spin across all devices. Returning to the time of vintage glamour with lovely ladies, you can benefit from wild reels, free spins with up to 3 random wild reels as well as a life-changing progressive jackpot.
Visually, MegaJackpots Ocean Belles is rather stylish – set on a cruise ship with the deck and ocean behind the reels, symbols include A, K, Q, J and 10 royals as well as globes, ship wheels, binoculars, captain hats, belle Vicky and belle Betty. There’s another belle (in a blue top) who is the most valuable symbol – 5 on a payline will give you 4 times your stake. This symbol also appears 2 high.
MegaJackpots Ocean Belles comes with a Synchronised Reels feature – each reel benefits from large stacks of the same symbol. Before each base game spin, a reel with 1 of the stacked symbols is randomly chosen. Any symbol, bar the scatter, the Red Kiss and Golden Kiss symbols can appear stacked – this can occur on multiple reels too. Basically, it increases your chances of forming winning combination.
There’s also a Wild Stays 2 Plays feature which is triggered when you collect 2 Red Kiss or Golden Kiss symbols on a reel – when 2 have been collected, the reel on which they appear will become a wild reel for the next 2 spins. This can happen on more than 1 reel for plenty of wild reels.
MegaJackpots Ocean Belles also comes with a Player Decision Free Spins Bonus feature – this is entered when you get 3 or more lighthouse bonus scatters anywhere in view. You then choose from 3 options depending on how many scatters you triggered the feature with – you choose the number of free spins and random wild reels:
|Bonus scatters||Option 1||Option 2||Option 3|
|3||5 free spins with 3 random wild reels||15 free spins with 2 random wild reels||30 free spins with 1 random wild reel|
|4||10 free spins with 3 random wild reels||30 free spins with 2 random wild reels||60 free spins with 1 random wild reel|
|5||15 free spins with 3 random wild reels||45 free spins with 2 random wild reels||90 free spins with 1 random wild reel|
If you were to trigger the Player Decision Free Spins Bonus feature with 5 scatters, you could choose 90 free spins but only 1 random wild reel – alternatively, 3 random wild reels from 15 free spins would be a better choice as your chances of winning increase quite a bit. Whatever option you choose, you can retrigger the feature up to 4 times meaning up to 450 free spins potentially. Saying that, 75 free spins with 3 random wild reels on each free spin is the best outcome in my opinion.
MegaJackpots Ocean Belles also offers you the chance to win the MegaJackpots progressive jackpot – the higher your stake, the better the odds of landing it. You can win the progressive jackpot when you see 5 Golden Kisses collected under each reel! Each Golden Kiss symbol will stay under the reels until the jackpot is won or until the Wild Stays 2 Plays feature is triggered. The minimum you’ll win from the progressive jackpot is £500,000!
Overall, MegaJackpots Ocean Belles looks great – variance wise, it’s low to medium with maximum wins of 300 times your stake on each spin/free spin (if you fill the reels with wilds and the high value lady). It’s all about the MegaJackpots progressive jackpot which is highly unlikely – there’s a chance though. I would rather play IGT’s MegaJackpots Star Lanterns which offers the life-changing jackpot and offers bigger payouts in the base game/features.
