Secrets of Atlantis™ slot inspired by Plato’s lost island
I just can’t imagine that the small island I live on will disappear into the Mediterranean Sea for whatever reason. And even if it did, I’m sure it won’t appear in a story as ‘a peaceful utopia holding wisdom that could bring world peace’. Don’t get me wrong, I love my island, even though I wasn’t born and raised in the country, I did find my home on this island. But, for a long period of time, it has been behind to the rest of Europe and daily life shows. The island is catching up, though, but I don’t think it is able to bring world peace. Plato did believe there was such an island, or at least he imagined there was, and we know this legendary “lost” island as Atlantis. This lost island has been a mystery and an object of fascination for thousands of years. What historians don’t know is that only one know the secrets of Atlantis, hence NetEnt will soon introduce the Secrets of Atlantis™ slot at the numerous NetEnt Casinos.
Plato’s Atlantis summary
Within a few paragraphs, I’ll be telling you what to expect from the Secrets of Atlantis™ slot that will be launched 24th August at the majority of the NetEnt Casinos. Before I give you a slot preview, I better get deeper into the subject the Secrets of Atlantis™ slot has been inspired by. For two reasons as it might be handy that you, just in case you don’t yet, know what Atlantis is. More important, because the subject of this new NetEnt slot, or actually the idea of a lost island like Atlantis, has been captivating dreamers, occultists, and New Agers for many generations.
As NetEnt mentioned already in its slot description attached to the YouTube preview video above, Plato’s Atlantis is described through the character Critias in his dialogues in an ancient tale about a likely mythical island that sank, in a night and a day, into the ocean around 9,600 B.C.
Plato (c.424–328 B.C.) mentions the island in the dialogues “Timaeus” and “Critias”, through the character Critias, in which it is described as an island larger than Libya and Asia Minor put together. If, and I emphasise the word ‘if’ here, Atlantis indeed exists, Plato believed it was located in the Atlantic just beyond the Pillars of Hercules (also known as Strait of Gibraltar).
The legendary “lost” island of Atlantis is often idealised as a powerful and advanced kingdom holding the wisdom we humans are longing for, especially when is told it could have brought world peace. Plato’s Atlantis, though, seems way less idyllic when described as “a technologically sophisticated but morally bankrupt evil empire, attempting world domination by force”.
Even though Atlantis was believed to be protected by the god Poseidon, Atlantis could not escape its fate. Just as the Greek island of Santorini was destroyed by a volcanic eruption around 1,600 B.C., the ancient tale claims the same happened to Atlantis. Divine punishment led to earthquakes and floods after which Atlantis sunk into a muddy sea.
Secrets of Atlantis™ slot features
Quite a tale right? It’s impressive how the story keeps people busy for thousands of years already! No wonder NetEnt decided to dedicate its next new video slot to Atlantis, finally revealing all true secrets. Therefore, it’s time to submerge yourself in the underwater world available in the Secrets of Atlantis™ slot, featuring all kinds of sea creatures including crabs, turtles, jellyfish, clams and pearls while a mysterious mermaid has a very important role to play in the secrets of Atlantis™ slot.
NetEnt would never ever bring a new video slot into the world of iGaming without a new and innovative slot feature as never seen before. The Secrets of Atlantis™ slot is no exception and a very original Highlight feature can be expected as soon as this new NetEnt slot is launched on 24th August. The Highlight feature seems one to look out for as something special is about to happen when all three middle reels are highlighted during the Main Game. It seems that the Colossal symbols Re-Spin is triggered when all three middle reels are highlighted. When indeed is the case, the three highlighted reels will transform into a 3×4 Colossal symbol. If the Colossal symbols show a crab, for example, all three reels will be filled with crab symbols resulting in huge winnings depending on the value of the symbol.
I assume that the Nudge Wild feature has something to do with the Mermaid involved in the Secrets of Atlantis™ slot. The mermaid will appear on the reels, but sometimes a piece of here is missing. The Nudge Wild feature is able to make the mermaid appear fully. The mermaid will then be nudged up or down after which the entire reel will be filled with the Mermaid Wild substituting for other symbols available in this new NetEnt slot.
Additionally, there’s the Both Way Wins function in which winning combinations will be available from the left to the right, as well as from the right to the left. This, in combination with the fourth symbol on every reel, will be responsible for many more winnings while playing the Secrets of Atlantis™ slot or its mobile version Secrets of Atlantis Touch® that will be released the exact same date.
