Octopays Slot Machine

It would come as a bit of a shock for those who don’t really understand why so many players (literally, millions of them) fanatically follow slots and everything they stand for. Contrary to popular perception, the underlying motive (so far as we understand it) for this is not to earn big bucks in quick time, but it is just to get away from the banalities of mundane life for an hour or two. Like most things, when adopted in moderation, slots can really help one stay focussed by staying distracted.

This focus can come in many varieties – from high adrenaline rush to careful management of paylines, and from incredible gameplay graphics to soothing ambiances. And if it’s the calm and tranquillity you are after, Octopays is one slot that’s going to fit your slotter’s hand like a tailor-made mitt!

In An Octopus’s Garden

Well, who can forget the catchy jingle that the Beatles wove around a fictitious octopus and his underwater retreat?

We can bet high and handsome that while playing Octopays, you are going to feel as happy as you did while listening to Ringo Starr’s raspy vocals! It’s one of the best Microgaming slots EVER – and come to think of it, we can’t even put a finger on what it is that makes it so cool!

Non-intrusive graphics that carefully create a submarine ambiance and minimalistic sound effects that really go well together with the theme are the highlights of this slot. Believe it or not, when this slot is launched on the screen, pay-out potential is going to be the last of your concerns (and, quite rightly so, because you can spin the reels just for fun, without wagering!).

But This Octopus Does Mean Business!

You may not think too much about pay-outs here, but it hardly means that this slot doesn’t pay off. It does, and in some style, too!

First thing’s first – 243 fixed ways to win is a great deal to have for five reels, just because it relieves you from the headache of manipulating paylines. Some players may argue that it takes the only skill out of the gameplay. It may be just to say that, but online slots – we all need to concede this frankly – are all about luck, and it would be foolish to think otherwise!

The coin values range from 1 cent to 50 cents (too low, we hear you!) and you can wager a maximum of 300 coins ($150) per spin, which is not at all bad.

The maximum you can hope to take away from Octopays – without counting bonus features and special symbols (more to follow about this) – is 8,000 coins. So, in theory and thought, for wagering the highest amount, you stand to make a cool four-grand fortune while virtually enjoying business-class marine hospitality!

Take that, land-based casinos!

Symbols Right From The Sea-bottom

Regular symbols that you are going to play with here are all deep-water creatures, from various octopi to sharks and sea turtles to sea monsters.

The minimum number of symbols that you need to match anywhere (no paylines, remember?) is three. Unfortunately, only horizontal combinations from left to right count here. There’s no place for vertical or diagonal matching here, and you have every right to rue that fact.

That’s Not (at all) All!

Regular symbols are cute and everything, but the real meat is put on this skeleton by special symbols in Octopays. The wild here is a Baby Octopus that can be swapped for any of the regular symbols, anywhere on the screen. It appears only on even-numbered reels (2 and 4).

Microgaming has put a nice little touch here with a popular feature called ‘Kraken Bonus’. We all know how scary Krakens can be, but while playing Octopays, you will be praying hard just to see one of them, because they carry 12 free spins – no conditions and no asterisks!

To unlock this feature, you will have to end up with two wild symbols – one each on reel 2 and reel 4.

Regular scatter of another Mega-Kraken can appear from time to time to provide you with free multipliers and spins – but it’s admittedly very rare to see even one, let alone three or four of them.

Our Word

If you are a slot veteran with high-rolling coffers, Octopays can just stoke your interest if you are ready to wager big every time.

It seems quite strange to note but the game's highest player popularity is currently to be found in Belgian Casinos - who knew the Beatles were so popular there?

That said, we would highly recommend Octopays to players from all countries who don’t mind small margins and great fun – with some peace of mind to boot!

Really, you can’t put a price tag on that now, can you?
