Great Blue Jackpot looks and sounds better, but the bonus features are where players will see the biggest difference. It’s worth pointing out that in the sequel they have done away with the gamble feature. But they’ve added in some other elements as we’re about to find out.
We’ll start with the basics, that’s the wilds. They’re represented by the whale, which is also the highest paying symbol in the game. Aside from substituting other symbols, the wild also doubles the win for any combination it participates in. Wilds can also be stacked.
Great Blue Jackpot slot also features a scatter which is represented by the seashell and pearl. 3 or more of these symbols will trigger the Pearl Bonus feature. At the start of this bonus round, all players receive 8 free games and a x2 multiplier. Players must then select 2 out of 5 seashells to reveal extra free games and multipliers. This can amount to a total of 33 free games and 15x multiplier. During the Free Games feature, bet per line and number of paylines cannot be changed. 3 or more scatters during this round will trigger an additional 15 free games. Multipliers won’t apply in this case. Once complete, players receive their total winnings and return to the base game.
