Play OCEAN SPIN today!

Play the new Ocean Spin(TM) slot series here! Linked progressive jackpots & wave after wave of fun!


The symbol-driven Ocean Spin feature is awarded when any 3 or more scatter symbols land. Floating prize bubbles that wander fluidly across all screens become a horizontal wheel-spin that runs across all connected cabinets. The awarded player can win any one of the following:

  • Credit Prizes: Various credit prize amounts that scale according to player
  • Major Bonus or Mini Bonus: Fixed amounts scaled to player
  • Mega Jackpot or Maxi Jackpot: Linked progressive amounts with higher odds at higher bets.
  • Free Games: Depending on the base game, players can win 5 to 30 free games during the Ocean Spin feature. Pirate’s Riches adds an additional trigger symbol during free games, increasing the odds of the wheel bonus. In Kingdom’s Treasures, players can win additional free games with only two or more scatter symbols. It’s an ocean of possibilities!


Here’s a deep dive: Players earn credit prizes emblazoned on coin symbols, which are claimed in conjunction with the Wheel Bonus. During primary play, bonus credit prizes are based on the total accumulated in a single spin. In free games, however, bonus credit prizes accumulate for the duration of the feature. The wheel bonus is a chance to spin for credit prizes multiplied by the wheel multipliers shown above the reels.
