IGT MegaJackpots Ocean Belles Slot Review and Free Play

Join a group of glamorous gals on a retro sea cruise in MegaJackpots Ocean Belles. This 5 reel, 5 row, 75 payline video slot has been created by IGT and combines classy vintage design with some cracking extras. Chief among them are the stacked wilds and a bonus round where you can choose from a range of free spin and wild reel combinations. You could also land life changing sums courtesy of the MegaJackpots element. Set sail on your PC, tablet or mobile from between 75p and £375 per spin.

The old school design here has a real 1950s feel. The setting is the deck of a cruise liner where you’ll find lower value A to 10 symbols alongside a globe, a ship’s wheel, binoculars, a sailor’s hat and the Ocean belles, Betty and Vicky. The most rewarding symbol is the blonde belle in the blue jumper who spins in stacks that are 2 symbols high. Land 2, 5 of her on a payline and you’ll receive an award of 4 times your total bet.

MegaJackpots Ocean Belles sees large stacks of symbols on each base game spin – known as the Synchronised Reels feature, this can lead to bigger wins due to more of the same symbols being present at any one time.

Each time the red lipstick kiss symbol lands, it fills 1 of the 2 meter positions beneath that reel. When both are filled, the Wild Stays 2 Plays feature is activated – you’ll be awarded a stacked wild on that reel which will remain in position for the next 2 spins.

The main feature is the Player Decision Free Spins Bonus feature. It’s triggered by landing 3, 4 or 5 of the lighthouse bonus symbol on the same spin.  You’ll then be offered a selection of free spin/wild reel combinations:

Trigger with 3 Scatters Trigger with 4 Scatters Trigger with 5 Scatters
30 Free Spins with 1 Wild Reel 60 Free Spins with 1 Wild Reel 90 Free Spins with 1 Wild Reel
15 Free Spins with 2 Wild Reels 30 Free Spins with 2 Wild Reels 45 Free Spins with 2 Wild Reels
5 Free Spins with 3 Wild Reels 10 Free Spins with 3 Wild Reels 15 Free Spins with 3 Wild Reels

 

The wild reel(s) can change position on each free spin – with 4 retriggers available, you could play with a total of 450 free spins with 1 wild reel per free spin or 75 free spins with 3 wild reels per free spin. I would opt for 3 wild reels as it increases your chances of winning the maximum 300 times bet payout on each spin/free spin.

MegaJackpots Ocean Belles is part of the MegaJackpots network so you’ll also have a shot at landing a potentially life-changing prize. To trigger the biggie, you’ll need to land 5 golden lipstick kiss symbols, 1 under each reel. With at least half a million on offer, it’s paid out more than £3 million before!

There’s plenty to like about this sea cruise. The vintage visuals are well done and the jazzy soundtrack fits the theme rather well. IGT has added some pretty good features too, especially the Player Decision Free Spins Bonus feature where the wild reels can really get things moving. Add the MegaJackpots into the mix and you’ll want to join the Ocean Belles on their seafaring adventure.

Unfortunately, it’s not rewarding enough in the base game or features (300 times bet max win) – for that reason, I’d rather play NetEnt’s Hall of Gods or Playtech’s Age of the Gods.
