Subtopia is a rather random, 5-reel max 20-pay line online slot from NetEnt. It has a sub-aquatic, nautical feel, as you are plunged below the ocean waves in search of mystical treasures… or at least beneficial jackpot bounty to get your casino account bulging with coinage. You hop aboard the good ship Subtopia and get the reels spinning. The symbols are playing card values from ten to ace, as well as your fellow submarine crew members. To secure a win, you just need to land three or more identical symbols on one of your active paylines, although there are a number of bonus features available to increase the chances of you splashing the cash into your casino wallet.
You need to launch things off by selecting the value of your coin from 0.01 to 0.50, your 'bet level' from one to ten, and the number of lines you want in play from one to twenty. The higher your coin value, bet level and the number of lines, the higher the cash amounts you stand to win. Once you're happy, hit spin to see if you'll sink or swim.
Payout & bonus rounds
Jacks and tens are the lowest payout in this game, at x5 your stake-per-line for three of them. The top money-spinner is a wild-haired chap proudly clutching a golden idol, who will pay you x2,000 if five of him pop up on one of your pay lines.
That golden idol we've just mentioned acts as the wild symbol and substitutes for all other symbols aside from the scatter symbol and the 'Free Spins Multiplier Meter' symbol.
Speaking of that 'Free Spins Multiplier Meter' symbol, this appears at random and awards a x2, x4 or x6 multiplier to all free spin wins.
During the main game another multiplier pops up at random, awarding a x2, x3 or x5 bonus to all wins.
A spinning compass symbol acts as a scatter symbol, and landing only two wins a jackpot prize. Three or more awards a random number of free spins during which all prizes are multiplied by another multiplier that depends upon the number of scatter symbols you land.
Sadly, Subtopia is pretty sub-standard when compared to many of NetEnt's other slots. The action is sub-par, even with all those multipliers bouncing around. If you start playing Subtopia, chances are you'll soon want to sub-stitute it for a different slot entirely, and before all your funds have been sub-tracted from your casino account.
