Wild Depths immerses players in new high stakes video slot action

Grab your scuba suit because Pragmatic Play’s newest release, Wild Depths, takes players on an underwater voyage where thousands of vibrant fish float without a care in the world amid different kinds of coral deep under the sea. In addition, Extra Spins, Wilds, and Scatters can give winnings of up to 5000X your wager!

This video slot, equipped with 5 reels and 4 rows, offers 40 paylines and a higher-than-average RTP of 96.48%, and is set in a scenario similar to Pixar’s 2003 film Finding Nemo. Winning combos are produced by lining up three or more identical smybols on adjacent reels beginning from the far left in the new game, which is playable on PCs, notebooks and mobile devices.

Wild Depths

Seashells and fish

The lesser paying symbols in the game are the 10, J, Q, K, and A card images. The value of lining up five identical symbols varies between 1x and 1.5x the stake. A red starfish, purple seashell, and green seashell are medium-paying symbols, and lining up five of the same color wins you between 2.5x and 5x your wager. The higher-paying fish are blue, yellow, and orange, and lining up five identical symbols pays between 7.5x and 20x the stake.

To capture bigger fish in Wild Depth, keep an eye out for the Bubble. This acts as the game’s Wild and appears on all reels save the first, substituting for all symbols except the clam with gigantic pearl Scatter. Wilds assist in the completion of winning paylines and come with an x2 multiplier that multiplies the combination in which they are found. When two or more wilds appear in a win, the multiplier values double.

Gameplay features

When you line up one or more wild symbols, they stay on the reels after the win thanks to the Roaming Wilds feature. On each consecutive spin, they slowly float up to the next place until they drift away. As previously stated, the Scatter comes in the form of a clam with a large pearl, and landing three of these in the regular game will launch the Extra Spins round, which includes 6, 9, or 12 extra spins.

Furthermore, hitting three or more Scatters while in the Extra Spins round will result in an immediate payout and reactivation of the feature, giving players an extra five Extra Spins. During Extra Spins, getting a Wild symbol will also cause a respin.

According to business press, Pragmatic Play’s Chief Business Development Officer, Yossi Barzely, intended to create Wild Depths “as inclusive of an experience as possible” for a range of player types as one of the company’s first releases of the year.

“The jovial underwater theme is reinforced by a rich collection of exciting features, each enabling the player to land a big catch.”

New Pragmatic Play releases

The new undersea experience follows the multi-product content provider’s launch of additional Baccarat as well as Speed Baccarat tables to its live casino baccarat offering, as well as its full content contract with Latin American operator Locosbet.

In the New Year, Pragmatic Play has published two new slot titles, the first of which being Magician’s Secret, which was released earlier in January. Both of the new games add to a portfolio of over 200 HTML5 slots that already includes hits like Crystal Caverns Megaways, Smuggler’s Cove, and the immensely successful John Hunter and Big Bass Bonanza series.

The hardworking developer’s next project is Gold Party, which will be released on January 20th.
