Ocean Rush Is an Underwater Spectacle
Ocean Rush is a five reel, fifteen pay line slot game developed by Euro Games technology. The background, as the title suggests, is deep blue water complete with lots of bubbles. There is also a background design of underwater flora like seaweed and corals, and the symbols all relate to the sea.
The symbols in Ocean Rush include the great King Neptune himself, with a big green beard, and there is also a beautiful Mermaid. You will see a bug eyed orange Crab, a Starfish with red pouting lips, a pink Octopus and a coyly smiling striped Fish. These symbols are all designed in an amusing cartoon like way, and all display some fun animations in the event of a win, including King Neptune roaring “Welcome to my Kingdom”. The animations get even better when you trigger the Bonus game.
Wilds are Valuable Symbols
The Wild is the Zebra Fish, and is the highest paying symbol in Ocean Rush as well as being able to replace all other symbols in a winning combination. You will earn a bIg prize for three or four Wilds appearing at the same time, with five Wilds appearing together on an active e pay line giving you a really large payout. If you land a winning combination that includes a Wild as one of the symbols, that win will double the amount listed in the pay table.
King Neptune and the Lovely Mermaid are the next most valuable symbols, and for landing five of each there is a big prize waiting. Next in value are the Shark and Crab, the Starfish, the Octopus and the stripey Fish as well as the Treasure Chest. There are no playing card symbols in this game.
The Free Spins Bonus Round
Ocean Rush has two Scatter symbols, the Clam and the Pearl. These two symbols will compete with each other in an on screen pick them game, where you choose one of them to reveal a Scatter prize. There will be a huge win if you hit all five of either of these two Scatters. There are symbols that represent a Lucky Dive, which appear only on the last three reels. If you hit all three you will activate the bonus free spins game.
You will receive between seven and twenty free spins, with a multiplier of between one time and five times for every win that you make. To see the exact number of free spins that you will get, you will play a pick them game which will show you a screen containing twelve Clams. You can click on them, each revealing either a multiplier or a number of free spins, and you can keep clicking until you find one that says Play. This is where the animations in Ocean Rush really become entertaining. This multiplier is in addition to the one you will get for a winning combination including a Wild symbol. A message will appear, showing you your total wins.
The Progressive Jackpots
Ocean Rush also includes the EGT speciality progressive jackpot cards game. You will see four black boxes above the reels, which are progressive jackpot amounts. You choose from twelve playing cards until you land three of the same suit.
The amount of the jackpot that you win will correspond to the amount of the suit that you have chosen, and it can be really lucrative.
