A completely different world exists below the oceans. Both beautiful and awesome at the same time it has attracted explorers from time immemorial. Leading online casino software providers have taken up different facets of the ocean world and created fascinating slot games that enthrall by their sheer visual appeal. This article describes the best of these ocean themed online slots.

One of the simplest ocean themed slot games is Great Blue from the software provider Playtech. The reels are set below the ocean and deep blue color pervades the screen. The beautiful side of the ocean is revealed through symbols like Pearl in Shell, Sea Turtle, Seahorse, Starfish and Tropical Fish all in bright colors. The dangerous aspect is depicted through Shark and Whale Symbols. The Whale is the wild symbol. It not only doubles payouts but performs some amazing animations. The Pearl in Shell symbol triggers the bonus game. First the players are taken to the ocean bed that has five closed shells. Players pick two of them to determine the number of free spins, which are then played out.

Ocean Dreams from software provider Realtime Gaming (RTG) has very similar symbols as Great Blue but is richer in games features. Also the islands that lie amid the oceans play an important role. The Orca is the wild symbol. Five Orca symbols appearing in an active payline offer a jackpot payout of 40,000 coins. The Golden Orca is a special wild symbol that appears only on Reel 3 and doubles payouts. The Island symbol triggers the free spins. If the player gets five Island symbols 100 free spins are awarded. During the free spins all Orca symbols change to Golden Orcas and double payouts. The other symbols in RTG Ocean Dreams include Fish, Seahorse, Sea Shell and Crab. The slot game has the standard RTG Win-Win Bonus feature and two randomly triggered progressive jackpots.

The ocean bed is home to treasures from ships sunk long ago and searching for this lost treasure is the focus of the Rival Gaming slot game Ocean Treasure. Hence the symbols on the reels depict accessories that help in this search like Compass, Flipper, Snorkel and Scuba Gear. However, the fantastic sea creatures are not totally missing. The Puffer Fish is the wild symbol and also doubles the payouts when it assists in making winning combinations. The Clamshell activates the Pearl Bonus game in which the player picks a number of clamshells on the second screen to win bonus credits. One of the highlights of Ocean Treasure from the software provider Rival Gaming is the background audio of gurgling water that adds realism to the atmosphere.

The ocean has also been a subject of intense fantasy. A common conception of the ocean has been as King Neptune's realm with the sea creatures as his subjects and the mermaid as the princess. This theme has been portrayed by the software provider Microgaming in the slot game Mermaids Millions. King Neptune is the wild symbol and the Mermaid is the scatter symbol. There are symbols depicting sea creatures like Seahorse, Crab and Octopus and also symbols representing the wealth of the ocean such treasure chests and pearls. Mermaids Millions offers both a free spins feature and a bonus game on the second screen.
