Atlantean Gigarise Review
Atlantean Gigarise is a mythical-themed slot that's all about expanding reels (known as Gigarise reels). The game starts with 243 ways to win and can expand up to a total of 32,768 ways to win if all of the reels expand high enough! In addition to the Gigarise reels, this slot features a bonus game, free spins feature and no fewer than five jackpots!
This slot, as you would expect is set deep under the ocean in the lost city of Atlantis. Fish swim by the ancient ruins of this once grand city. The reels themselves are set into the ruins of an ancient temple which is flanked on either side by grand Doric columns.
Low paying symbols in this slot are your standard 10, J, Q, K, A whilst high paying symbols are all items associated with Atlantis and ancient Greece... These include a sunken pot, a harp, a sword and shield, a warriors helmet and a gem-encrusted broach. The game's wild symbol is an ionic column with the word WILD underneath it. The scatter symbol is an oyster with a shining pearl sat within it.
Upon first playing this slot each reel is set at the following heights... 3 symbols on reel 1, 4 symbols on reel 2, 6 symbols on reel 3 and 3 symbols on reel 4... Every time a Trident symbol lands on the game reels that specific reel will grow by one symbol (up to a maximum of 8 symbols). The reel sizes will not reset between spins and if players manage to fully grow a reel to 8 symbols and then land a Trident symbol on it then they'll trigger a bonus game and that reel is reset to 3 symbols.
If players change their stake at any time during gameplay then the reels will reset to reflect that stake size, however, if you go back to one of the previous stake sizes then the reels will revert to whatever size they'd reached before.
In terms of navigating the slot, there's an action bar that features coin value buttons, a max bet button, spin and autospin. If players press the blue + button on the far left-hand side of the game screen then they'll open an expanding menu that features the paytable, game settings, game rules and sound settings.
This low/medium volatility slot has an RTP of 96% and a maximum win of 4,370x the player's stake, which is alright but all-in-all nothing groundbreaking. Base game symbol values are quite low, most big wins will come by way of the free spin feature. However, the biggest wins will come during the bonus game when players can trigger one of 5 different jackpots.
Atlantean Gigarise is an interesting game, the Gigarise mechanic is engaging and we thoroughly enjoyed trying to increase the size of the reels in an attempt to unlock all 32,768 ways to win. The free spins were generous and the bonus game/progressive jackpots are just far too good to miss out on. Don't pass on this slot if you're after something truly different.
