Playson Aquarium Slot Review and Free Play

Aquarium: Demo

Sometimes we want all the bells and whistles a video slot can offer, at other times we want something a little more simple – Aquarium fits into the latter category. It’s a basic 5 reel, 30 payline game that might lack features but it can still deliver some high variance thrills. Play on your desktop, tablet or mobile from between 15p and £90 per spin.

The setting here is a bubbling fish tank full of coral, plankton and a school of grinning fish. There are 7 different brightly coloured fishy symbols on offer here, the best of them being the sea horse who will get you a very handsome reward of 166 times your stake if you manage to land 5 of them across a payline.

Keep a special eye out for the goldfish – it’s hard to miss him really as he’s sporting a mighty quiff that Elvis would have been proud of. The goldfish is the wild and though not offering any awards in its own right it does substitute for everything bar the scatter when it hits on reels 2, 3 or 4. The orange starfish is that scatter. It offers payouts of 5, 50 or 500 times your total stake if you manage to land 3, 4 or 5 of them anywhere on the reels on the same spin.

You’ll see we haven’t mentioned any free spins, multipliers or pick me rounds. That’s because there aren’t any. That’s right – there’s precisely zero on offer in the way of bonus rounds or traditional features.

That lack of extras might make you think that this was a gentle, low variance video slot. In fact, it’s anything but. The volatility here is high – expect lengthy spells when your bankroll will sink to the bottom of the tank. Get a big scatter win though and the coins can quickly build.

Aquarium is very easy on the eye and ear. The bright visuals are nicely drawn and the soothing backing track is a nice match. The lack of features won’t appeal to everyone. If you after something where you can just sit back and hit autoplay, then Aquarium should do the trick. I would recommend you try Alice in Wonderslots from Playson which has bonus features as well as Novomatic’s Jewels of the Sea which also takes place underwater.
