7 Oceans pokies is a 3-reel 1 payline pokie machine with a thematic twist developed by Microgaming. This pokies will take you to the bottom of the sea; where you can spot a nice big chest of treasure sitting among the corals and the fishes. By spinning this simple game for line wins of up to 20,000 game credits can be collected. There are no bonus distractions such as free spins, wild symbols or gimmicky side games, just pure classic spinning entertainment.
In this pokies game, you will find a combination of retro game symbols with a generic thematic setting. This time, the vintage calibre reels are placed under the sea; with a game screen that depicts an ocean floor that is decorated with bright corals while starfish; clownfish and other tropical fish swim around in the deep blue waters.
The reels themselves are fairly unremarkable; presented as 3 simple reels while subtle use of glared lighting to give a faux 3D effect; so it’s hardly going to compete with some of the contemporary 3D video pokies out there in the graphics department. Nonetheless, upon the reels; players will find a series of familiar pokie machine symbols; such as single BARs, double BARs, triple BARs, a blue 7 and a red “7 Oceans” logo icon.
The overall aesthetic of 7 Oceans isn’t going to win the pokie machine; any awards for innovation in design anytime soon. However, the two-dimensional symbols; and ocean-bed scene are presented with bold clarity and plenty of colours to ensure that players’ eyes have something vibrant to look at.
You will also be able to see the pokie machine’s full payout schedule upon the same game screen as the reels; meaning that they won’t have to keep switching back and forth between the different screens during the game. However, at first glance; this paytable may seem a little bit confusing with three different sections; that are lit up depending on your wagering strategy.
Players can play with 1, 2, or 3 coins in 7 Oceans; and the number of coins you have in play will determine the winning potential that the game has. For example, if you only have 1 coin placed on the single payline; then you will only be able to win the smaller line bet multipliers in the “1st coin” table. If you play with 2 coins then you will only be able to win the bigger prizes listed in the “2nd coin” table. However, if you go all out and play with 3 coins, you will be able to win the prizes shown in the “2nd coin” and “3rd coin” boxes.
The benefit of playing with all 3 coins are evident in the fact that this enables players to line up rows of matching 7 icons or combinations of 7 icons for much larger wins.
Bets are made in coins, each of which having a range from $0.25 to $5. 7 Oceans is free of bonus games, wilds and multipliers it is full of Bar symbols keeping you up and running and not letting you lose yourself in the oceans’ depths. With 8 winning combinations, a maximum bet of $15 and – most pleasantly – the biggest jackpot of 4,000 coins, 7 Oceans lets you feel the power of the elements and hone your treasure-hunting skills to the full.
