Play ‘N Go Sea Hunter Slot Review and Free Play

Sea Hunter: Demo

Dive into some extremely volatile waters on the hunt for sunken treasure in Sea Hunter. Created by Play ’N Go, it’s a well designed 3 reel, 5 payline video slot that comes with a quartet of power ups that deliver symbol transformations, streak spins, added wilds and a win spins with multipliers of up to 15x. Stakes range from between 5p and £100 per spin.

As usual with Play ’N Go video slots, there’s little cause to grumble concerning the design of Sea Hunter. The ocean floor, complete with treasure chests and an assortment of sea life, forms the backdrop to the action. The reels are set within a pair of depth meters and include 8 different aquatic symbols.

You’ll see goldfish, puffer fish, jelly fish, turtles and skates spinning around the reels. Most rewarding is the whale which pays 15 times your stake if you land 3 on a line. Helping to create those winning combinations is the mine which replaces all other symbols as well as offering awards of 25 times your stake.

You’ll notice that there aren’t any scatters here – the features are instead triggered by landing winners on consecutive spins. The more you winners in a row, the better the power up. There are 4 of them in all:

  • Growth Gun feature – land 2 winners in a row to trigger this extra. A cannon fires at a symbol. All instances of that symbol are upgraded to the next most rewarding and a new payout is made.
  • Sticky Shot feature – this becomes active after 4 winners on the bounce. 1 symbol is shot at by the cannon – all instances of this symbol are locked and a re-spin follows. These continue as long as a new matching symbol joins the cluster. When no new winner is added, the final payout calculation is made.
  • Wild Warhead feature – the Wild Warhead is triggered following 5 wins. Between 1 and 3 wilds are added to the reels on the spin that follows.
  • Multiply Mortar feature – a guaranteed win spin is awarded after 6 successive wins. The cannon blasts at the reels to reveal multiplier which can send that win rocketing by up to 15x.

Sea Hunter may be very easy on the senses but don’t let it trick you into thinking it’s a gentle game. It’s anything but. These are the equivalent of shark infested waters as far as volatility is concerned. This is an extremely high variance game. Expect some lengthy winless spells. Get on a roll with the power ups though and some potentially spectacular results are possible – with nearly 1,000 times your stake on each on each spin.

We enjoyed this explosive underwater adventure. The high variance means it’s probably not for players trying to eke out a limited bankroll. With its good look, range of extras and volatility, Sea Hunter is an ocean quest well worth undertaking. If you like volatile/underwater themed games, Novomatic’s Lord of the Ocean cannot be beaten.
