The Great White Slots

Not many creatures have it in them to be fierce yet alluring, outrageously powerful yet tantalizing, enormous yet susceptible, terrifying yet terrific and efficient yet flawed. If a list of all such creatures was to be drawn up, there is a high chance that the great white shark will top that list, ipso facto.

Such is the cult and legend around this species of marine life that even the best of artists – from Hemingway in The Old Man and the Sea, to Steven Spielberg in Jaws – have found themselves at the mercy of their aura.

Of course, if you really want to know what it is that makes the great white shark such an enchanting figure, you can tune into special documentaries by the Discovery Channel or National Geographic. But if you just want to take a first-hand look at the charisma of this scarily beautiful species, log on to The Great White, a shark themed slot by SkillOnNet, where playing is easy and winning is even easier.

An Underwater Strangeness

There are quite few slots out there that try to tap into the strangeness and charisma that the seas hold within them. Even the biggest of developers like NetENT and Microgaming have found it irresistible to keep their catalogues of slots without some marine-themed slots.

But throughout our extensive coverage and review of various slots available in the iGaming arena, never have we come across a slot that is solely and so specifically dedicated to shark, more precisely the great white shark.

That’s the first thought that took us by surprise and stoked our anticipation. And to be fair, the slot didn’t really disappoint us as far as the appearances are concerned. The clever use of white and blue colour scheme is indeed laudable, while a tinge of red here and there only serves to remind us that the protagonist here – the great white shark – is not one to be taken too lightly!

The Great White Gameplay

Much of the awe that The Great White holds, as a real-money slot as well as a free spins slot, seems to come to an abrupt end once you get past the initial blitz of impression.

When you carefully start to dissect the gameplay, the veneer appears too thin to hold on any longer, and the obvious chinks in the armour of this slot start making inroads into the repute that has been so carefully built up so far.

The first signs of wreckage are the very format of the gameplay. With 3 reels and 3 paylines, one would be forgiven to ask the developer who it is that the slot was primarily designed for.

It is surely not profitable or big enough to attract high-rollers. It also isn’t good enough to allow rookies a chance to get a feel for slot. So, we can only infer that the major target player-ship that the developers had in mind while designing The Great White has to be that of adventure-seekers.

Wager your Blood – NOT

In a virtual world, it would be OK to say that you are required to wager your blood in this slot that features blood-thirsty great whites at the forefront. In reality, however, all you would be doing is to wager some coins on three meagre paylines.

Each of these lines can be activated by putting at stake one coin for it. This means that at no point you are allowed to wager more than 3 coins. With coins value being bracketed tightly between 5 cents and $1, the range of real-money value you can put at stake here comes to be between 15 cents and $3.

There you go – this will give you a better idea of why it is that The Great White tends to disappoint many slotters!

Symbols Used

Symbols used here are all allusions to the life on and under the sea. Life jackets, anchors, periscopes, monocular, the Great White itself and some fish species carrying wonderful blue colour make take turns to make appearances.

Quite surprisingly, the highest paying symbol here is the blue fish – not the central pivot of the slot, the Great White. It pays out 600 coins for 3-on-3 sorts of combos.

Take a Bite

In theory as well as in practice, The Great White is the kind of slot that you play once or twice and then forget all about. What disappoints us more is that the unique theme of this slot seemed to have a great deal of potential initially – much of which appears to have been squandered away with a middling gameplay that features no special symbols.
