Pragmatic Play releases exciting new video slot Wild Depths

Wild Depths is a Pragmatic Play aquatic slot adventure that places players in an innocuous-looking setting to discover life beneath the oceans. 

More about Wild Depths 

It is essentially a cartoon rendition of life beneath the seas, in the vein of Finding Nemo, where the local people pose little to no risk. Visually, it also bears some resemblance to Relax Gaming’s failed chart-topper Deep Descent. On the gaming front, Wild Depths is equipped with a few elements that, while simple on their own, work rather effectively when combined. All included are multiplier wilds, roaming wilds, re-spins, free spins, and a progressive win multiplier.

Volatility is the primary reason for this, and with a rating of 5 out of 5, it is pretty high. The RTP is high at 96.48 percent on the default setting, and players can theoretically expect to activate the bonus game every 120 spins. The entire deep-sea dive experience is available on any device, with stakes ranging from 20 cents to £/€100 every spin.

There are 40 pay lines to land winning combos of at least three of a kind across the 5-reel, 4-row game area. The paytable continues the bright, effervescent style with chunky neon. The low pays are 10-A royals, the mids are three shellfish, and the premiums are three cheerful-looking fish. Winning combinations of five symbols are worth 1-1.5x the stake for low characters, 2.5-5x for mid marks, and 7.5-20x for premium symbols. Wilds are critical to catching large fish in Wild Depth. They appear on all reels save the first and can be used in all logos except the scatter. Wilds are always accompanied by an x2 multiplier, which is applied to all winning combos in which they appear. When more than one wild symbol is used in a win, the multiplier values are multiplied together.

The scatter symbol is the pearl in the oyster, which appears on all reels. Landing three, four, or five of them pays out 2x, 15x, or 100x the total bet and activates six, nine, or twelve free spins. When a wild symbol appears during a free spin, it initiates the same roaming wild/respins pattern described previously. Additionally, each time a respin occurs, a win multiplier increases by one. 

This multiplier is applied to all respin winnings and resets after the respin sequence when all wilds have left the grid. Scatters remain on the reels during the bonus round, and landing three of them delivers an unlimited number of additional free spins.

Quotes from the Press Release

“As one of our first slot releases of the new year, we wanted to make Wild Depths as accessible as possible for a variety of player types,” said Yossi Barzely, Pragmatic Play’s chief business development officer.

“The cheerful aquatic theme is complemented with a plethora of fascinating elements, each of which assists the player in landing a large catch.”
