Octopays Video Slots Game

Octopays is a Microgaming video slots game with a classic underwater theme. The game offers five reels and a unique 243 ways of winning, as well as numerous free spin, bonus, and multiplier features.

Set in the depths of the ocean, background animations include fish and sea creatures swimming around a rusted wrench. The animation features are combined with high graphics and various sound effects to enhance the underwater feel.

The symbols in Octopays are also true to the underwater theme, and include octopi, treasure chests, helmets from divers, sharks, fish, as well as the standard poker symbols running through from nine to the aces.

The Betting Basics

Octopays allows for a wide betting range, and players can choose coin denominations from 0.01, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20, and 0.50. Players can also choose to play up to ten coins per pay line.  Alternatively, players can select the ‘Bet Max’ feature to allow for the highest bet being selected, and then the game will spin the reels automatically.

The betting itself is also underwater-themed, as the ‘Spin’ button appears in the shape of a ship’s steering wheel. If players have not selected ‘Bet Max’, they will have to click this button in order to spin the reels after they have placed their bets.

Once the reels have come to a stop, any winning combinations will pay out. Winning combinations are determined in line with the pre-set pay table. Players may access this pay table to learn more about the winning combinations through the settings function on the main screen. Here they will also find further information on the game’s bonus features and wild symbols.

The Wild Symbols and Bonus Features

Octopays has two wild symbols.

The first wild symbol is an orange baby octopus. The wild symbol can be used to replace any of the other symbols on the reels, except for the bonus symbols, in order to create the best possible winning combination. However, this wild symbol can only appear on the second or fourth reels of the game.

The wild symbol may also be used to activate a bonus feature. If the octopus appears on the second and fourth reel in a base game, this will activate the Kraken Feature. In this feature, players will be awarded with twelve free spins. During the free spins, additional effects will appear on the screen to entertain the players.

There is also a second wild symbol in Octopays, which is the bonus wild symbol. This is represented by the squid, which can appear on the third reel during any bonus rounds and act as a substitute for any of the other symbols during game play.

The Multiplier Eel

Something to look out for during the Octopays slots game is the moray eel. If the moray eel appears among any of the symbols in the reel, it acts as a multiplier. The moray reel multiplies any win by two, as long as either the moray eel or the baby octopus is in the winning combination.

Note, however, that the baby octopus does not act as a multiplier if it forms part of the winning combination.
