Theme of The Game
It seems like Playtech has been on a really good streak, since they have been announcing and launching a huge bunch of games since the year started.
Mythological Greek gods, Ace Ventura, The Flintstones, Top Gun, Polynesian culture, a Japanese videogame style slot, and now a game that looks like being inspired by Nemo and his aquarium friends even if it is not an actual faithful copy.
Wacky Waters’ grid is decorated with colorful and comic-like undersea symbols, like sharks, octopuses, clownfishes, shrimps, seahorses, starfishes, and many more.
The visual design is made with the intention of making a colorful yet simple layout for the game. However, it seems it might be too simple. The whole design seems something you would find in your kid’s coloring book rather than something worth of a slot machine.
With almost 17 years of experience, Playtech has a vast experience in developing games that have met all of the player’s tastes and requirements for their satisfaction, allowing them to build a portfolio with a really huge range of games that go from the most conventional 5 x 3 grids to the rarest ones with the most original features, inspired in trademarked themes like comics, movies, Hollywood celebrities and even sport players.
The company has been working in a new system called Playtech One that will interconnect all of the platforms available (web browser, personal computers, smartphones and tablets, iOS and Android) so you can access all of their games with the same account and the same wallet. Although, it seems like the only game that will have this feature will be Tiki Paradise, for now, as it is still in beta processes.
How to Play It
Wacky Waters is featured with a traditional 5 x 3 reel and 15 different pay-lines for you to come across the different combinations available.
Your bet is placed in each single pay-line and you can adjust this bet in a setter placed on the bottom of your screen, however, you can’t change the amount of pay-lines you will be working with. The user interface is quite simple and straight forward as it is commonly found in the most traditional slot machines.
On the bottom right of your screen you will be able to find the auto-spin button that we all know allows you to sit back and relax while the game spins automatically the reels for you as the magic happens all by itself, along with the turbo boost mode that will shorten all of the animations to accelerate the game mode to save you some time, and the easily recognizable spin button.

The game has a feature called Puffin’ Up which convert Albert The Blowfish into an expanding wild whenever it appears in the middle reel (the third one) from 1 to 6 extra wilds taking over the whole reel. It is completely random whether it takes 2, 3 spaces or the whole reel.
The scatters, which are the Cash Crab, activate a pick feature where you can choose one of the three or more Crabs you hit to deliver instant cash prizes. The amount of picks you will be able to make will depend on the amount of Crabs you managed to hit.
Last but not least, the Bonus symbols (the anchor) that appear on first, third and fifth reels will trigger a mini-game that involves guiding Albert to pick many power ups, such as free spins, multipliers and many expanding wild symbols. During this free spins, the Puffin’ Up and the Cash Crab features will be available and the anchors will reward you another 8 free spins.
If you manage to combine 5 of the Albert The Blowfish symbols you will get 3000 times the amount of your wager.
Even if the design of the game is too simple or sober, the special features gives the game an incredible boost of profitability and playability. I believe this game is for the ones out there looking for a traditional game that, no matter the visuals, can get you great amounts of money.
