Where to play?
The lovely ladies of MegaJackpots Ocean Belles revive the era of vintage glamour. As you set sail on the seven seas, these free-spirited pin-up girls will keep you company.
Does it sound cheesy? Well, that is just the introduction to International Game Technology’s (IGT) MegaJackpots Ocean Belles progressive slots; wait until you see the rest! Armed with 75 paylines and 5 reels the winning potential on a single spin is a life-changing £500,000! In typical IGT fashion, bets start at £0.75 to £750 per spin, playable on mobile devices (Androids, iOS, tablets).
There is an abundance of activities on the reel set, and rightfully so because few slot machines can top a progressive jackpot like this. Built into its mechanic is a Synchronised Reels (stacked symbols) feature, a Wild Stays 2 Plays, and a Player Decision Free Spins Bonus.
The visual fidelity of Megajackpots Ocean Belles is powerful, and it is further embossed with colourful symbols; not to mention those beautiful ladies. The ocean and a cruise ship serve as the backdrop for the reels. Symbols on the screen are cards from 10 to Ace (low value), globes, lighthouse scatter, binoculars, captain’s hat, Betty, Vicky, girl in a blue shirt, scatter, Red, and Golden Kiss. The symbol offering the biggest win is the girl in the blue top, and you’ll pocket a payout of 4x your stake for 5 of them.
The RTP or average return to player percentage of MegaJackpots Ocean Belles is around the 95.2% mark.
The Synchronised Reel feature is primarily a large stack of the same symbol that appears on the reel that is randomly selected. All the symbols can appear stacked, except the scatter. When a stacked symbol pitches, it enhances your payout. Our biggest win in the main game was £7.50 at an average bet of £1.50 per spin, it is two stacked symbols combined with a few lower valued symbols. Having said that, it takes a while before the game really gets going because it is a progressive feature.
Wild 2 Stays to Plays
You’ll trigger the Wild Stays 2 Plays bonus round when 2 Golden Kiss or 2 Red Kiss symbols appear. Not only will they become wilds but they’ll stick to the reels for the next 2 spins. Bear in mind this can occur on more than 1 reel.
MegaJackpots Ocean Belles presents you with a free spins feature titled the ‘Player Decision Free Spins Bonus.’ You’ll trigger it when you get 3, 4 or 5 lighthouse scatters at any position on the reels. The Free Spins can be triggered up to 4 times, and therefore, a maximum of 450 free spins can be gained. You can decide how many free spins and wild reels you want. It all boils down to the amount of scatters that appear:
- When 3 scatters appear, you can pick 5, 15, or 30 free spins with up to 2 random wild reels.
- When 4 scatters appear, you can pick 10, 30, or 60 free spins with up to 3 random wild reels.
- When 5 scatters appear, you can pick 15, 45, or 90 free spins with up to 3 random wilds.
MegaJackpots Ocean Belles gives you a shot at winning the MegaJackpots progressive jackpot. To be eligible for the progressive win, you must wager the maximum £750 per spin. The progressive jackpot is earned once you have collected 5 Golden Kisses beneath each reel. The good news is that they’ll stay under the reels until you trigger the Wild Stays 2 Plays feature or when you win the jackpot. The smallest jackpot is a gigantic £500,000!
MegaJackpots Ocean Belles has eye-popping visuals, but what makes it unique among progressives is that its volatility ranges from low through medium to high. The base game wins are not as good as we would have liked, and the probability of winning the progressive is quite remote. We prefer IGT’s MegaJackpots Star Lanterns where the base game payouts are better, and its jackpot is genuinely life-changing.
MegaJackpots Ocean Belles IGT FAQ’s
Can you give me any tips?
Yes, we can. Although Hall of Gods from Net Entertainment has no bearing on this game’s theme, the fundamentals of playing a progressive slots remain the same. Set a bankroll aside, check the game’s RTP, how many bonus rounds it has, play it with free credits, and ask the casino if their welcome bonus can be used to play progressive slots.
It is imperative to ask the operator if progressive wins are paid in full. Luckily all our IGT-powered online casinos pay progressive wins in a single payment, which is quite a feat in this industry.
