How to play SubtopiaClick here for a print friendly version
When you play Subtopia, you do not need to hold your breath nor invest in diving gear even though it will feel as if you are on an underwater adventure. Like most games by NetEnt, the animations are colorful and engaging, while the music adds another level of entertainment to the game. Like the deep sea, this game is shrouded in mystery. Winnings are randomly multiplied by up to five and free spins are determined by the multiplier meter. In other words, nothing is set in stone and every game can be different than the last. Because of the simplicity of the gameplay, it does not matter if you are a slot-game newbie or veteran. Everyone can enjoy playing this video slot game with a RTP of 96.07%.
Before you can hit the spin button and start your underwater adventure, you have to set your bet lines, bet level and coin value. You can play one to 20 bet lines at a multiplier of one to 10. Picking a value for each is as easy as hitting the arrows next to the Lines, Level or Coin Value box. Once you have your bet determined, simply hit the spin button to watch the reels come to life. This is not the only way you can play the game. If you want to make a certain number of spins at the same bet level, you can use the autoplay button. This can help speed up the game and might increase your luck. If you really want to increase your chances of winning big, however, you need to use the max bet button. This plays the highest bet level at your current coin value.
The real question you need answered is, how do you win in Subtopia? Each symbol has its own payout level. For example, if you get four Ks on a single bet line, you would win 25 coins. If you got four captains, however, you would win 150 coins. You can look over the payout value for each symbol by heading over to the paytable. Remember, your winnings are multiplied by your bet level. In other words, if your bet level is five, those 25 coins from four Ks would turn into 125 coins. Before each spin, a random multiplier between one and five is determined, and this is also used to multiply your winnings. With all of this multiplication it is no surprise that the theoretical return-to-player rate is 96.1 percent. It’s important to remember that in order to win you have to have successive symbols starting from the leftmost reel. This means having a K on reels two through five would not get you anything. Wild symbols can be used to substitute for any symbol besides scatter and free spin multiplier meter.
While diving into the depths of the sea, you can win free spins. If three or more scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels during a regular spin, the Free Spin feature begins. This feature is played at your current bet level, but it can be multiplied by a random multiplier that will show up on reel five. Free Spins ends when the crossbone symbol appears on the multiplier meter. You cannot win extra free spins during this gameplay.
