Golden Tides Slot Review

Have you ever dreamed about diving so deep into the ocean that you come across magical creatures such as mermaids? Well, 2by2 Gaming has done just that by creating a slot that is guaranteed to take you for a dive into the unknown!

Our story takes place deep down the ocean where the sun rays illuminate the coral reefs scattered all around the seabed. The reel set, which occupies most of the screen, is bigger than the ones found in most well-known slots. It is complemented by a teal and yellow outline leading up to the logo sitting on top written in bright gold font.

Regarding the mechanics, the game operates like most other slots. That is, the reels start spinning altogether and come to rest one at a time in a consecutive fashion. The otherwise dull gameplay is enhanced by the addition of multiple mystery features but more on these later on.

Slots featuring the ocean and sea life, in general, have been particularly popular since the beginning of the online slot industry. If you are interested in such games then you can check out “Octopus Treasure” by Play’n GO as well as “Subtopia” and “Secrets of Atlantis” by NetEnt. For now, though, let’s take a closer look at how the game in question works.

How to Play Golden Tides

The game consists of 4 rows and 5 reels with 40 fixed paylines. As with other 2by2 Gaming slots, the controls are found at the lower part of the screen giving players the ability to adjust the active bet amount, spin, tweak the audio settings, enable the autoplay function, or enter the in-game menu for further information.

Moving on to the bets, staking starts at $0.40 and goes up to $40 per spin. Golden Tides is a high volatility title meaning you can expect to get some pretty high wins from base game spins. That said, the maximum exposure is 1,200x while the RTP is fairly good at 96.04%.

Golden Tides features 4 low paying, 2 medium paying, and 4 high paying symbols. The first are represented by card values J-A followed by a sea shell and an oyster while the most rewarding symbols come in the form of four mermaids.

The slot’s special symbols are:

  • Wild – Represented by the game’s logo, the wild will appear on reels 2 and 4 substituting for all symbols except for the scatter.
  • Scatter – Represented by the treasure chest, getting at least 3 of these symbols will trigger the free spins feature.

Game Rules

Golden Tides Features

Thanks to the game’s high volatility, big wins are more likely to occur during the base game than usual. Let’s find out a bit more about the special features!

Mystery Feature

During each spin, each of the reels contains a stack of mystery positions which are replaced by a random game symbol except for the wild and scatter. All the mystery symbols are replaced by the same game symbol for a given spin. This increases your chances of landing a winning spin.

Mystery Feature
Golden Mermaid and Wild Mermaid

This feature is triggered during the base game whenever a full stack of wild symbols land on reel 2 and/or reel 4. All mermaid symbols will convert into their associated golden forms and pay according to the gold symbol paytable instead.

The wild mermaid feature may trigger randomly during the base game causing all mermaid symbols to convert into wilds. The golden mermaid and wild mermaid features can both trigger on the same spin.

Free Spins

Getting 3, 4, or 5 scatter symbols will trigger the feature awarding 10, 15, or 20 free spins respectively. The player will be offered two options to choose from. These are:

  • Golden mermaid free spins – All mermaid symbols pay according to the golden paytable.
  • Frequent feature free spins – The golden and wild mermaid features will occur with a higher frequency.

Getting 3 or more scatters will reactivate the feature awarding 10, 15, or 20 additional spins based on the number of landed scatters.
