Great Blue


The Great Blue slot doesn’t disappoint, staying true to its name and giving us a whole lot of blue and as you might’ve expected, a focus on the ocean life. The game was designed by Playtech and it has 25 lines on 5 reels. There isn’t much of a setting here, the blue waters of the ocean being placed right behind the reels and overwhelming the design a bit. The various shades of blue that are used here don’t make for a great design, though many other slots with a similar theme do much better. The features do look very good, with the wild symbol offering a multiplier, and with the scatter symbol resulting in free spins with multipliers of up to 15x.


Graphics & Theme

The design in Great Blue is nothing special, mostly because of the heavy use of the color blue, in various shades that are not always that well chosen. We have the blue ocean at the top of the screen, with oxygen bubbles rising up to the surface, then we have the lighter shade of blue that is used on the reels, and finally, we have more than half of the symbols in blue as well (the playing cards). The choice of colors is not the only problem that we find in the game’s design, the symbols not having the kind of quality that we would’ve wanted either. Overall, the game is average in every respect when it comes to the way it looks. Some of the symbols do look somewhat better though, especially the blue whale, the tortoise, fish and the shark.

Special Effects

A beautiful blue whale is the game’s main symbol, easily recognizable as the wild symbol, since it is clearly marked as such. It will do two things for the player, both of them typical for a wild. The one that you can always count on it doing is the substitution that allows it to help form additional combinations, in this case with a 2x multiplier attached. The second thing it does here is its offer of cash prizes, whenever 2 to 5 of these symbols appear on an active line, in consecutive order and starting from the leftmost position. These payouts go up to 10,000 times the wager per line, meaning up to $5,000.


The second big feature of the game is the scatter, represented by a beautiful pearl shell. This is another symbol that will offer payouts, only instead of line multipliers we get bet multipliers, of up to 500x. The scatter has an important role here, a trigger for free spins.

As many as 33 spins can be won by players if they have the required three scatters on the screen, with multipliers also going as high as 15x. Overall, a great feature and the potential for profits can be huge.


Give Great Blue a chance if those features look good to you, there is every reason to think so. The design is going to disappoint though, so you might want to look for another game if you want a great looking slot to play on.
