Ocean Oddities is a cute little online slot from RTG, that although has a bog standard layout and feature set, has a funny little theme. The game has the usual five reels and twenty five paylines, with standard extras such as a free spins round that is launched by a scatter and a wild symbol. The games twenty five optional paylines can be played for as little as 0.01 and as much as 5 for coin values, This makes Ocean Oddities a slot that will appeal to those not only with a sense of humour but also all budgets.
Cute Cartoon Graphics
Ocean Oddities slot won’t be wining any prizes any time soon for it graphics, they are already a bit dated. With all the exciting 3D high definition options out there, players could be excused from passing over a number of RTG’s slots, Ocean Oddities included, for games that are much more visually stimulating. The graphics are all in drawing style, and done to look cartoony, which does go with the theme. The slot is a very cheerful one, with loads of bright colours and interesting characters. The scene behind the reels is an underwater beach with some rather strange looking mushroom type things. The reels themselves are sand coloured and go well with the theme.
What exactly are oddities of the ocean? In this slot case, they are some very odd characters that look a bit like they have been though up by RTG developers who were smoking more than their socks. The characters in Ocean Oddities don’t even really tell a story, they are just all rather odd in themselves. Along with the faintly disappointing deck of cards symbols at the bottom of the pay grade, we have things like a snail riding a racing sea horse, a crab carrying a no trespassing sign, a sea urchin, a barking shark and King Cod. The king is the games top paying symbol awarding you with a pretty standard 2500 coins.
Odd Couple of Specials
Comparing to some games at online slot casinos Australia, this slot only has two special features. The first is the games wild which is in fact that barking shark. He is so called because he is a shark with a dog collar and a droopy tongue reminiscent of our land based canine friends. This odd shark will double all wins that he forms a part of during the free spins round, as well as substituting for any other symbol in the game except for the scatter. He can only be found on reels two three and four though.
The scatter in the slot is a pearl in a clam shell with the games name emblazoned on it. This is found on any reel and will pay out scatter wins for even one of them, multiplying your total bet up to fifty times. It will also launch the free spins round should you find three or more of them also anywhere on the reels. Here you will only receive ten free spins, but these can be retriggered during the round. Don’t forget that Rex the wild also pays out double during this feature, which may end up in you winning the standing jackpot of 40 000 coins when Rex forms a win with the Cod King.
