The Mega Moolah legacy continues in Atlantis

For thousands of years, human beings have been fascinated by stories of Atlantis and other cities believed to have sunk below the waves long ago. Atlantean Treasures, the forthcoming latest instalment in the legendary Mega Moolah online slot series, will offer chances to explore that ancient location and plunder its treasures!

Created for Microgaming by Neon Valley Studios, the new game will offer the powerful progressive jackpot in a fantastic new format. The slot goes live at River Belle mobile casino on 25 February, 2020.

Rewarding Marine Marvels

Whether a 2,300-year-old myth recorded by Plato, or the stories of the Solomon Islanders, people around the world believed – some still do – that entire civilisations sank. What is even more interesting is that some places, such as India’s Mahabalipuram, actually do have a basis in history.

While we wait for archaeologists to find Atlantis, Mu, and all the other sunken lands, we can enjoy what Neon Valley Studios has done with the Mega Moolah slot concept.

On this new slot the 5 reels and 10 bidirectional paylines are set in the murky depths of the ocean. Next to the Atlantean Treasures reels is a giant oyster shell, inside of which is not just one measly little pearl, but an entire cache of sparkling treasures. Of course, your attention really will be on the reels, where you can see a blue BAR, a blue 7, a pink and orange fish, a purple and orange fish, a blue seahorse, a green anemone, and an orange starfish.

If lucky, you may even encounter the mysterious mermaid that has made her home among the ruins of Atlantis. You also might get your hands on a few of the gleaming yellow pearls that are essential for triggering the new online slot game’s Progressive Jackpot bonus round. The bidirectional paylines means winning combinations can form from left to right, and from right to left.

Powerful Expanding Wild

Encountering the mermaid on the Atlantean Treasures reels could be an exciting event. She appears on reels 2, 3, and 4 only, and when her symbol lands, it is the same size as the other icons.

However, the mermaid is an Expanding Wild. Within moments, the symbol will expand, and it will fill the reel it landed on. A standard-sized Wild is powerful because it can substitute itself for other symbols. How much more powerful then are Expanding Wilds like the mermaid in Atlantean Treasures?

Wild Respin Feature

The Atlantean Treasures mermaid’s powers do not end with expanding on reels and substituting for other icons when it can help them create a win. Whenever her symbol lands, she will also award you a Wild Re-Spin.

The mermaid will stay exactly where she is for at least one Re-Spin. If that spin produces another Wild, you will receive yet another Re-Spin with the Wilds stuck in place.

The Progressive Jackpot Round

The golden pearl progressive trigger symbols act like Scatters on the reels of Atlantean Treasures. They can appear on reels 2, 3, and 4 only, where they land by being superimposed on any of the regular symbols.

The online slot’s Progressive Round will trigger when you collect enough of the pearls. Instead of spinning reels for your chance to win the Mini, Minor, Major, or Mega Jackpot, you will need to spin the famous Mega Moolah bonus wheel.

Dive In To Win

When Atlantean Treasures goes live at River Belle on 25 February, the new online slot will accept bets between the 0.10 and 200.00 minimum and maximum limits. At 92.08%, the RTP may be ever so slightly steeper than you may be used to, but the medium volatility game does have a juicy 21.69% hit rate. Neon Valley Studios joined Microgaming’s developer’s club in 2019, and it wasted no time in releasing its first slot, Aurora Wilds. The studio is focused on producing story-driven gaming content that entertains as much as it rewards, and it looks it is going to manage that quite nicely in Atlantean Treasures.
