Great Blue is a 25 payline, 5-reel video slots. It offers you 28 winning combinations with an abundant of stacked wilds, free spins, scatters and bonuses. This slots machine is powered by Playtech released on the 5 February 2009.

The software provider that powers Great Blue video slot is Playtech. Since its release it has become extremely popular with players, it offers a maximum jackpot win of $500,000 and regular payouts. We were struck by its vibrant and invigorating look.

Great Blue is an ocean themed slots with a kaleidoscope of sea creatures like a Sea Turtle, Seahorse, Shark, Turtle, Whale (Orca), Shells and Starfish as symbols on the reels. It can be played for free or for real money. For every coin wagered another payline is enabled. Note that you are paid out for winning combinations on enabled paylines only.


The maximum jackpot payout is 10,000 coins and the second highest jackpot is 2,500 coins. The Paytable indicates possible winning combinations for each symbol. All payouts are done in coins. To convert coins to credits multiply the amount of coins by the size of the coin denomination.

Wilds and Scatters

The Orca symbol is the wild symbol. In other words to complete the winning combinations it substitutes other symbols. The Orca symbol does not substitute the scatter symbol and does not complete scatter winning combinations. The Orca wild symbol can appear stacked on all five reels.

The wild multiplier is the Orca symbol. It simply means that winnings are multiplied by 2x when the Orca wild symbol appears in the winning combination. The scatter symbols are the Shells and Pearl. The scatter symbol on a permitted line does not win since it must first be scattered anyplace on the reels.

When three or more Clam Shell scatter symbols appear scattered anywhere on the five reels, the free Spin Bonus game is triggered. There’s a difference between the line bet and the total bet. The line bet indicates the amount of cash you’re wagering on a single pay line. The total bet indicates how much cash you are spending in a particular game round. Card symbols such as Nine to Ace also appear on the reels.

Great Blue Free Spins Bonus Round

Three scatter symbols activate the Pick Shells bonus game on the second screen. This bonus game is played on the second screen. The Free Spins Bonus Feature is triggered when it appears on the spinning reels. To win 33 free spins you must hit 2 out of the 5 shells in the bonus game. During the free spins, wins are multiplied up to 15 times.

Coin Denomination

The coin denomination starts off with $0.01 to $5. The maximum coins per payline are 10 and the maximum possible bet is $1,250

Gamble Bonus Game

You wager on any regular prize in the game. If a winning combination appears the ‘Gamble’ and the ‘Collect’ buttons are enabled. To increase your prize click on ‘Gamble’ or ‘Collect’. If guess the correct card colour (Red or Black) you have the option to collect the cash won or to gamble again.

Skill Stop Feature

The Skill Stop Spin Feature enables you to stop the spinning reels with just a touch of the button by clicking the “spin” button. If you click on the “Spin Button” all the reels will automatically stop spinning. Not only will this land you additional wins but it also triggers the Bonus Round Feature.

In summary. Great Blue video slots offers eye-catching graphics. If I take into account out the amount of cash this slots paid out since its release I can honestly say it’s one of the loosest slots across all gambling platforms. It offers loads of customization options, huge payouts and stacked wilds on every reels. Highly recommended.
