It’s high time to revisit the depths of the oceans blue, slots-style, in Rival Gaming’s Whale O Winnings online slot machine game. Always a popular milieu for casino games, the deep blue is beautifully portrayed cartoon-fashion in this one. Dominated by shades of blue, the Whale O Winnings slot game features a symbol set with fairly typical stuff like seashells, treasure chests and sea urchins – also a bag of money with dollar sign for no reason other than its inclusion in an online slot. Highest-paying among these is the chests, good for 5,000x the payline bet when landing five on an active payline.
The player may wager anywhere between 1¢ and $125 on a single spin across the 50 paylines. The titular Whale O Winnings symbol hangs out by the side of the gameboard, becoming animated in response to big wins in the “base game.” This character also acts as the wild, paying out wacky totals (but no one’s complaining) of 7x, 77x, 777x or 7777x the payline bet for the appearance of two, three, four or five, respectively, on an active payline. As the wild, the whale symbol also tacks on a 3x bonus multiplier on any wins it helps makes up.
Meanwhile, the chummy dolphin (which in actuality is not nearly as fun-loving and altruistic a beast as members of homo sapiens often like to imagine, but that’s a story for another time) serves as the scatter. Landing three or more dolphin symbols earns the player 10, 15 or 50 free spins which are, nicely, retriggerable.
Whale O Winnings is certainly a nice enough online slot, done up to the typical high-quality standards of Rival Gaming software, though definitely a low-frills game. It’s also low-variance, i.e. many smaller payouts with relatively low jackpots. Also a bit disappointing in this low RTP (or Return To Player), which is reportedly below 95%. Nevertheless, Whale O Winnings is still afun enough play for a little while – and a decent introduction to the potential of Rival slots. Whale O Winnings: Dive into slots gaming
