Sometimes you just want a bright, cheery mobile slots game with not a lot of thinking. Playn’ Go has read your mind with Pearl Lagoon as they have rounded up the most lovable sea creatures and herded them into a simple slot with an aquatic theme.
This is a five-reel game with pay-outs on 20 win lines. Drop as little as 0.01 coins into the blue water to start and you can play as many as five coins per line. There is no progressive jackpot but the top in-game prize jiggles your bank to the tune of 5,000 coins.
This coral reef is a happy place. The closest you come to a conflict is the inclusion of the Crab. Otherwise, everyone’s favourites are on hand: Seahorses, Clownfish, Sea Turtles, Angel Fish and Dolphins. A peppy Calypso-flavoured soundtrack accompanies the denizens of the deep as they swim around under the waves. Even the minor playing card symbols seem to be swaying in the current.
The Dolphin is the Wild in the Pearl Lagoon and it will replace any of the other fish, reptiles and crustaceans and if in doing so creates a winning combination the award will be doubled. If a school of five Dolphins swim onto the reels that will result in the top prize of 5000 coins.
The Scatter is the Oyster bearing the namesake pearl which is revealed when two or more Oysters show up on the reels and, in the game’s only bit of animation, the shell opens to reveal a perfectly round, shining pearl. If three or more Oysters appear on the reef a bonus round of 15 Free Spins is triggered. During bonus play all wins are tripled and the feature can re-trigger up to a total of 60 free games. If the Dolphin joins in the fun for a win the payout is 6X your stake.
The inhabitants of the Pearl Lagoon are not adverse to a game of chance and you can gamble your most recent winnings on the turn of a card. Guess the colour for a doubling of your bank and the right suit will pay 4X. Now that was worth strapping on your snorkel.
