Nemo’s Voyage Slot Review
Nemo’s Voyage is a 5 reel, 40 payline slot by WMS Gaming which can be played from 40p a spin to £200 a spin. This is the first Phantom EFX slot to be released – Phantom EFX provides slot games for mobile and social players (such as Facebook) with their most popular title being Zeus II – these games can be found at Jackpot Party Casino which is available on Facebook, iOS, Kindle and Android. Anyway, this game can’t be found in land based casinos so it’s quite a treat for online slot players such as myself.
Nemo’s Voyage is based in the deep eternal night of the sea with untold treasures of lost civilisations to be found by those who are brave enough to embark on the adventure. It has a different and exciting wild feature every time you plunge to a certain depth, the trip to the bottom of the ocean can reward you with huge prizes. The more you play Nemo’s Voyage, the bigger the potential to win more (suits me perfectly).
This game is all about wilds as there are wilds, 2x wilds, 3x wilds, pressurised wilds, stacked wilds and wild reels – these are known as Wild Ocean features. To the right of the reel set you will see the Nautilus submarine which is located on a depth meter. Each spin during the descent of the Nautilus moves it down the depth meter. The Nautilus will pass a ‘lock’ which closes and a wild feature initiates until another lock is passed. You will see a pressure gauge displayed at the top of the depth meter with the needle moving one tick to the right on each spin when the Nautilus descends.
Increase Pressure moves the needle to the right until the next spin triggers the descent of the Nautilus. When the Nautilus ascends, the needle moves to the left (Decrease Pressure). Every stage engages a different Wild Ocean feature where an alternative reel set is used. The depth meter is made up of 5 section each containing a certain number of slices.
When you’re a quarter of the way to the bottom of the depth meter, you will trigger Multiplier Wilds. All wild symbols become 2x or 3x wilds giving you wins multiplied by those numbers. When you are half way down the depth meter, you will trigger Pressurized Wilds – all wild symbols become Pressure wilds meaning on symbols on the reel where a Pressure wild is, will become wild too (like an expanding wild basically).
When you’re three quarters to the bottom of the depth meter, you will trigger Stacked Wilds meaning all wilds are now stacked. A number of adjacent positions on reels 2 to 5 will be replaced with stacked wilds. When you reach the bottom of the depth meter, you will trigger Wild Reels. Ever spin at the bottom of the depth meter will make 1 to 3 reels completely wild which can lead to huge wins.
There’s also a Free Spins Bonus feature which can be activated when you get 3 Bonus symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 – here you will get 8 free spins. Look out for the Giant Squad who appears at random to wrap its tentacles around the reel and rip off a number of symbols – they then turn into Persisting Wilds which remain throughout the whole feature which can again give you big wins if you get a few.
Once you play Nemo’s Voyage, you will see that all the above is quite symbol. The further down the depth meter you go, the bigger the prizes on offer due to the wilds you can get. I love the fact you can get Wild Reels when you reach the bottom of the depth meter – I managed to 3 wild reels for 3 spins which led to a 400 times stake win!
There isn’t another WMS slot that is similar to Nemo’s Voyage which is great as it’s unique. I found the game to be medium variance with the potential for big wins possible whilst not completely destroying your bankroll – it has a nice balance to it and I suspect Nemo’s Voyage will become very popular. Getting the free spins feature wasn’t easy but wins tend to be good – on average between 30 and 50 times your stake.
