Deep descent is a breathtaking underwater-themed slot from Relax Gaming. Released on the 3rd of August, the game features soothing tunes, colorful cartoonish graphics, and slow-paced gameplay that go well with the deep sea theme. The action takes place on an expandable 5-reel, 3-row grid with an initial 243 ways to win. Deep descent is a high volatility slot with an RTP of 95%. Here, winners are created by landing 3 to 5 matching symbols across a payline, the diver symbol is an exception to this. It is the most valuable symbol in this game and pays from 2 to 5 on a payline.
There are 3 bonus slot features available to players here, the wild respin feature, the collection feature, and the deep descent progression feature.
- Wild Respin Feature
In this game, the wild can land on reels 2 and 4, and on reel 3 when all the levels are unlocked. They function as regular wilds do, to substitute for all the other pay symbols to complete a winning combination. But this isn’t the only function they subserve. Every time a wild symbol lands, the wild respin feature is triggered. The wilds come with numbers attached, the number can be anything between 2 and 5. The number is what determines how many respins you get. The triggering wild remains locked in place while the feature is on. Landing wilds during the feature extends it.
- Collection Feature
Before each spin, a random lower value symbol is assigned as a special collectible symbol. If this symbol forms part of a winning combination, the participating symbols are collected to fill a meter. Fill the meter to descend to the next level in the game.
- Deep Descent Progression Feature
This is triggered by filling the collection meter. The meter fills when you collect 7 symbols and this takes you down to the second diving depth level. Here, an additional row is added to the grid and this increases the number of ways to win from 243 to 1,024. A wild symbol is added to the reels also, awarding you with 4 respins. Collecting 21 symbols takes you even further down to the third diving depth. An extra row is added to the grid, giving you 3,125 ways to win. A wild with 5 respins attached also lands on the reels.
