We will never be able to get enough of the underwater them on casino slots and one of the main reasons for its enduring popularity is the way that developers seemingly have an uncanny knack for creating some truly outstanding titles as part of it. The theme itself is also one of the most flexible, with plenty of scope for new additions and creations to the range, and Subtopia is definitely something a little different to what we have come to expect. Rather than focusing on fish and treasure, this one is all about exploration and sets the scene with some great graphics, together with some highly appealing core features such as the scatter compass and multiplier meter.
What to Expect
The game is by no means difficult to play and kicks things off by making use of what we consider to be one of the most appropriate win line configurations for mobile action, that being twenty lines in total. Various character symbols are joined by playing card icons to fill the board with winning potential, and players will be able to make full use of the wild card for the purposes of completing wins large and small.
Subtopia was one of the earliest games in the NetEnt range to make use of a base game bonus and while it is inherently very simple, it can definitely be effective. A multiplier meter is displayed on the main screen at all times and it will land on a random number on each and every spin. Unsurprisingly, the ‘1x’ indicator is the one that you will see most often, and that means no multiplier, but given that the symbols are generally pretty valuable in their own right, we certainly cannot complain too much and see any boosts as being a bonus.
It is rare to see a NetEnt slot with no free spins round and Subtopia does nothing to change that, and triggering them is a pretty standard procedure too in that you will need three scatters in view. Rather than a set number of spins, players can instead keep on playing until their multiplier meter hits the newly added skull and crossbones symbol. In testing, we found that the bonus round would sometimes not even reach double figures in terms of spins, but on other occasions we ended up with more than forty.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
Whether or not you will enjoy Subtopia largely comes down to how much you value consistency. This game is at completely the opposite end of the spectrum to the likes of Starburst, where you have a pretty good idea of what to expect and when. Here, random multipliers and a free spin round that could be massive but at the same time could be ridiculously short will prove to be exciting for some players and disappointing for others. Then again, there is plenty of randomness in mobile slots as standard, so there is no harm in taking things to the next level occasionally!
