Aquaman is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot from Playtech that is part of the DC Comics series. Available to play on all devices from 25p to £500 a spin, it comes with respins with locked wilds, locking symbols with respins and a free spins feature where Golden Aquaman symbols transform villain symbols into Aquaman for enhanced wins. There’s also 4 progressive jackpots to be won.
Visually, Aquaman takes its inspiration from the comic books and not the blockbuster film. With the underwater Atlantis in the background, symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J and 10 royals as well as 3 different villains. You’ll also see Mera (the red-haired warrior) and Aquaman himself – the latter is the most rewarding symbol giving you 20 times your stake for 5 across a payline. The trident is the wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols bar the Free Games scatter.
When it comes to bonus features, you have the Trident Wild Respins feature which is triggered when you land the Aquaman symbol fully on reel 2. Aquaman then throws his trident onto the reels as they respin – in the process, 3 adjacent symbols transform into locked wilds. The reels then respin all with all locked wilds stick in position until you get a winning combination.
Look out for Mera landing fully on reel 4 as this will activate the Ocean Rush Respins feature – Mera then randomly selects a symbol which becomes a locking symbol with the reels respinning. If more of this symbol land, they lock in position with the reels respinning again. You can land Aquaman fully on reel 2 and Mera fully on reel 4 to combine both features for bigger wins.
Aquaman is mainly about the Atlantis Free Games feature which is played when you get 3 or more scatters on the reels simultaneously – 3, 4 or 5 scatters will give you 8, 12 or 16 free spins respectively. During the feature, collect Golden Aquaman symbols to transform villain symbols into Aquaman – 4, 8, 12 or 16 Golden Aquaman symbols will replace certain villains for increased winning potential.
Furthermore, a winning combination involving a wild symbol will subject your win to a 2x, 3x or 4x multiplier! Lastly, 2, 3, 4 or 5 free games scatters will reward you with 4, 8, 12 or 16 additional free spins. There are no limits to how many extra free spins can be won.
Finally, and as part of the DC Super Heroes Jackpot network, you can win 1 of 4 progressive jackpots in the DC Super Heroes Jackpot Game feature – any spin can trigger the feature. You will come across 20 Jackpot Icons which you then pick from – when you complete a collect area, you will win that jackpot. You have the Mini, Minor, Major and Grand Jackpot with the latter the most lucrative.
Overall, Aquaman is another good slot from Playtech – I like the 2 respins features but the bigger wins will come in the Atlantis Free Games feature as you can benefit from plenty of high paying Aquaman symbols, multipliers up to 4x and unlimited free spins. Medium variance, you can win up to 2,000 times your stake if you manage to get wins involving Aquaman and the 4x multiplier from the wild. If you like the DC Comics range, I recommend you try Suicide Squad or Justice League which are excellent.
