Gods of Seas Triton's Fortune: Slot Overview
Triton was the son of Poseidon and Amphitrite and lived with his folks in golden palaces at the bottom of the sea, where he was ruler of the depths. Triton is usually depicted as a merman, often blowing on a conch shell to control the waves, also wielding a trident from time to time. Being born into godly royalty meant a pretty good existence, though one possible downside for Triton was being overshadowed by his father. However, there are earthly tributes to him in the form of fountains, statues, and now an online slot from Microgaming partner Foxium.
Gods of Seas Triton's Fortune is based around the ocean-going god and is set in his domain far beneath the water's surface. Down here, there's a bunch of coral, rocks, sand, a couple of pillars in the background, though no golden palaces this time. The 5-reel, 20-payline game grid is transparent, not that there's a whole lot to see behind it. In free spins, the view darkens, and the soundtrack steps up to become quite stirring, like a choral number from an old school Greek myth movie. At first glance, Gods of Seas Triton's Fortune comes across as a pretty light game while also appearing to be another 9 Masks of Fire style slot suggested by the list of prizes above the reels and the number of scatters needed to win them.
Medium to highly volatile, Gods of Seas Triton's Fortune is playable on all device types, providing stakes from 20 p/c to £/€120 per spin. As for rest of the stats, hit rate comes in at 29.23%, which means a win every third spin on average. The RTP comes in different variations, so be sure to check the paytable to be on the lookout for the 96.2% version as it is the most generous one.
Nine regular pay symbols appear throughout; five are lower value 10-A royals, while high pays consist of black pearls, lyres, amphoras, and treasure chests worth 6 to 15 times the stake for a five-symbol winning line. A mermaid wild appears on all reels to substitute regular pay symbols, helping to complete winning combinations. If wilds create winning lines themselves, they are worth up to 25x the bet for five of them.
Gods of Seas Triton's Fortune: Slot Features
Cracking the top money occurs by landing as many Triton Symbols as possible, thereby collecting their associated cash prizes. This is possible during the base game or free spins, assisted by a Triton's Fortune and a Triton's Favour feature.
Landing at least 6 Triton symbols in the base game triggers a cash prize, and more symbols mean more money in your pocket. Triton Symbols land in any position, so 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, or 15 of them in view result in a cash prize worth 2, 4, 7, 14, 20, 35, 60, 150, 400, or 2,000 times the bet respectively.
Scatter symbols appear on reels 1, 3, or 5, and three of them in view triggers the free spins bonus game. Before it begins, players spin two wheels. The first wheel awards the number of free spins, from 7 to 15. The second wheel is Triton's Favour Wheel, which reduces the amount of Triton Symbols required to win a cash prize - this may be anything from 1 to 5. For example, if the wheel lands on 3, then 12 scatters would be needed to win the top 2,000x prize, and so on. The bonus game is retriggered if 3 scatters appear, awarding the same number of free spins as were initially won from the Free Spins Wheel.
One extra feature is Triton's Fortune which may randomly trigger on any spin. When activated, it places a number of Triton Symbols in random positions on the reels. Scatters do not land during the Triton's Fortune feature.
Gods of Seas Triton's Fortune: Slot Verdict
The last time we encountered Foxium was on the run through gnarled, tangled forests alongside hard men and women with big, curved swords and mighty moustaches. Cossacks The Wild Hunt was a tour de force of imagination and execution, so it was always going to be interesting to see how Foxium would follow up. It's a dilemma, though. After finding success, do you attempt to do something better or ease up for a bit? Trying to go big and missing the mark can cause doubts to fester. Aiming for the mid-ground is safer in some ways, but doing so too often causes people to suspect one-hit wonder status.
Foxium's gone for the second option, and like many in the Microgaming fold, has picked the 9 Masks of Fire model. One intriguing development is the Triton's Favour wheel. What you are given from here can be quite useful in achieving better cash prizes as the number of scatters required is decreased. Significantly decreased if you manage to land on the '5' segment. On the topic of payouts, Gods of Seas' 2,000x potential is the standard figure for this sort of game. Perhaps if Foxium had increased the top prize, the way Just For The Win has in their 'Gold' games, it might have upped Game of Seas' desirability.
Ah well, they can't all be hits, and after Cossacks, it seems Foxium's has switched on autopilot to sling a 9 Masks of Fire-type game. Players into this style should be appeased, and Triton's Favour is worth a look, but it's hard to avoid the feeling Gods of Seas Triton's Fortune is unlikely to make a big splash.
