If you live on a small island like I do, covering just over 316 km2, you once in a while have thoughts about a tsunami and what will happen to an island this small. Luckily, a thought like this occurs only once in a while and with my island being as safe as it can be in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, I’m not worried about a future disaster at all. Still, I can’t imagine that an entire island disappears in the sea, just like it never existed. Plato believed there was an island that disappeared into the ocean in a night and a day in 9,600 B.C. or he imagined such an island and described it in one of his writings. This particular island has been the inspiration source for another great NetEnt slot game which is telling the story of the legendary “lost” island Atlantis.
Plato’s Lost Island
As a writer, I have a vivid imagination, but I’m pretty sure mine doesn’t come close to that of Ancient Greek philosopher Plato. Plato was a smart man who founded the Academy in Athens, one of the first institutions of higher learning in the Western world. His writings, including the dialogues “Timaeus” and “Critias”, explored justice, beauty and equality also containing discussions in aesthetics, political philosophy, theology, cosmology, epistemology and the philosophy of language.
As I said, Plato was a smart man and I can’t blame the historians for being fascinated by Plato’s creation called the lost island of Atlantis. Plato who lived from 424–328 B.C. mentions the island in the dialogues “Timaeus” and “Critias” in which the character Critias describes the island larger than Libya and Asia Minor put together located in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean although some believe it was located in northern Europe. Wherever the island was located, this lost island has been a mystery and an object of fascination for thousands of years for many people. It might be the legend or the idea of a lost island like Atlantis that has been captivating historians, dreamers, occultists, and New Agers for many generations.
Although the oldest free-standing structures on Earth can be found on Malta and views can be pretty idyllic, I’m sure that the description of the island doesn’t come close to that of Atlantis. The legendary “lost” island of Atlantis is often idealised as a powerful and advanced kingdom holding the wisdom we humans are longing for. Many believed Atlantis could have brought world peace. Sounds like a picture perfect, but in fact, Plato’s Atlantis was way less idyllic as it was described as “a technologically sophisticated but morally bankrupt evil empire, attempting world domination by force”. According to Plato’s writings, Atlantis supposed to be protected by the god Poseidon. If his description was correct, I’m not surprised that Atlantis, eventually, 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 resulted in destroying earthquakes and powerful floods that made Atlantis disappear into a muddy sea.

Depending on how the reel lands, the Nudge Wild will be fully or partially visible. If partially, a nudge will be activated and the Mermaid will be nudged up resulting in her covering the entire reel where she acts as a Wild substituting for any other symbol. The same nudge is activated when the very attractive Colossal Nudge Wild appears partially on the reels during a Colossal symbols Re-Spin. During a Colossal symbols Re-Spin the three middle reels will transform into one reel filled with Colossal symbols. If the reel with the Colossal symbols is fully highlighted, an additional Colossal symbols Re-Spin is activated. This act of generosity will be activated during your entire session if all three middle reels are highlighted.
