About Megajackpots Ocean Belles
Ocean Belles themes its base game with a mildly saucy, naughty 1940s maritime style, placing its five reels on the deck of a luxury yacht. Seventy-five paylines form the rigging on which winning combinations can land from a spin, with eleven regular symbols forming the crew on the reels. These comprise five Royals (A to 10) for the junior ratings, whilst a globe, ship’s wheel, binoculars, captain’s hat and two saucy shipmates, Vicky and Betty, rustle up the bigger wins.
For its Wild behaviour Ocean Belles does things a little differently, sealing that special way to win with a kiss. Kiss symbols can land on any reel, either in traditional seductive red or in gold mode. Each that lands is collected into two possible slots under each reel. Fill those two slots and you’ll transform the reel above into a fully Wild affair, which will stay in play for the next spin too after which the collected kisses that triggered it are gone with a sigh. Naturally the Wild reel can substitute for all other symbols, the only exception being this game’s Bonus Symbol (a postcard of a lighthouse) that leads me neatly to . . .
Three, four of five scattered Bonus Symbols in view is Ocean Belle’s ticket into a round of enriched free spins, but with a lovely little choice on how you enjoy those spins. Common to all your choices is the power of Wild reels in play on every free spin, that randomly change position on each game. To play with more free spins you can opt for just one random Wild reel activated. But you can balance having two or three random Wild reels in play with fewer total free spins respectively if that’s how you roll! It’s a nice choice to have and, of course, the more Bonus Scatters that trigger the feature the larger the haul of free spins you’ll get to play with overall.
That covers Ocean Belle’s intrinsic rewards, but what of its link to the ultimate reward of the MegaJackpots progressive it can bring? That is the dream that can come true if you wish upon the Golden Kisses I mentioned earlier. Should luck let you collect five Golden Kisses, one stowed in view under each of the game’s reels, that event will drop the progressive jackpot that’s stacked up in that moment. And let’s not forget this is IGT’s globally networked MegaJackpots prize that is seeded from half a million quid, therefore routinely has built into a multi-million pound pot before some lucky punter gets the gift of that golden snog. Pucker up now!
