Dive underwater and embark on a quest for Atlantean treasure in NetEnt’s newest release – Secrets of Atlantis!

Explore a Drowned City Long Forgotten
Secrets of Atlantis is a 4-row, 5-reel, 40-fixed payline video slot set against a clear view of an underwater city. The symbols consist of sea creatures and even a mermaid which blend into the aquatic environment. While there are sound effects when the reels spin and on wins, there is little to no music to speak of.
NetEnt offers flexible bet options across its online video slots. To choose a Total Coin Bet ranging from 20 – 200 coins, select a Bet Level (1 – 10). To choose a Total Cash Bet ranging from 20p – £200, select both a Bet Level and a Coin Value (0.01 – 1.00) at Betive Casino. Secrets of Atlantis lists values for Total Bet, Balance and Win in both coins and cash beneath the reels. Pays are listed in coins only and can be found in the Paytable accessible via the ‘i’ icon. Pays remain fixed despite changes made to the Total Bet.
Secrets of Atlantis has 8 slot symbols consisting mostly of sea creatures. There is 1 special symbol, and that is the Mermaid Nudge Wild which can replace any regular symbol. The 7 regular symbols have the potential to appear as enlarged ‘Colossal’ symbols during Re-spins. Colossal symbols take up a 3 x 4 area in the center of the 4 x 5 reels increasing the potential for higher paying winning combinations. Listed in order of highest to lowest value, they include: Oyster, Ruby Crab, Emerald Turtle, Aquamarine Jellyfish, Crab, Turtle and Jellyfish.
This online video slot has the added benefit of ‘Win Both Ways’ gameplay. So, get 3+ matching symbols starting from either reel 1 or reel 5 to form a winning combination. As seen in other NetEnt slots, wins are auto-calculated by the game by multiplying the Bet Level by the coin Pay listed in the Paytable. Multiple payline wins are added up for a larger Total Win each spin.
Secrets of Atlantis keeps things interesting and profitable with its balanced game design.To profit along a single payline, get 4+ Oysters or 5+ of any regular symbol. That may sound pretty low, however, multiple payline wins, Win Both Ways gameplay, Re-spins and Wilds work to maintain that sweet 97,1% RTP.
The highest paying symbol of Secrets of Atlantis is the Oyster which awards (400, 50, 20) for a Bet Level selection of 1. This symbol gives this online video slot the potential to award up to 4000 coins along a single payline and up to 160,000 coins along all 40 paylines. Secrets of Atlantis boasts a top prize of up to 320,000 coins achievable with a combination of the Oyster symbol and Bonus Features. At Betive, that is a potential to win up to £320,000.
NetEnt slots typically offer an Autoplay ranging from 10-1,000 auto-spins. Set it to stop: on any win, if a single win exceeds a set amount or if cash balance increases/decreases by a set amount.
Secrets of Atlantis’ Game Settings include: Quickspin, Left Hand Mode (mobile), set spacebar to spin (desktop) and view Game History. Press spin again to freeze the reels speeding up gameplay. Use Game History to relive big wins!

Discover the Secrets of Atlantis
While watching Secrets of Atlantis’ Win Both Ways and Colossal symbols Re-spins in play, NetEnt’s popular Starburst slot comes to mind with parallels such as the potential for symbols on reels 2-4 to transform into matching symbols. That said, Secrets of Atlantis emerges as its own unique creation due to key differences in design including the inclusion of Nudge Wilds, the Highlight Feature and obvious variation in theme.
While testing the demo version of Secrets of Atlantis at Betive, this online slot produced 2.5 Main Game wins every 10 spins. Of those wins, 44% were profitable with the largest win being a Mega Win amounting to 44.8x the Total Bet.
