Under the Sea
Under the Sea is a lovely little online slot game that doesn’t take itself too seriously. The five animation-filled reels in this Betsoft game are set against a constantly moving background of gorgeous, colorful corals, sea plants swaying in the underwater currents and bubbles rising to the surface. The sound of waves lapping the sea shore is ever present and helps create the atmosphere of a summer vacation, as do the Hawaiian tunes that play out as you spin the reels.
The main attractions for Free Slots Pro players of this underwater slot game are the animations and sound effects. But Under the Sea does also come with a Treasure Chest Bonus Game, as well as Free Spins, a Scatter and a Wild.

How to Play
Interestingly, when we experimented with this game it was the first from Betsoft on which we initially hit the wrong button on the control panel when trying to operate it. (For your reference, if you wish to increase or decrease the value of your “coin” bet – but remember: no real money changes hands at all here at Free Slots Pro – just click on the wooden signpost at the bottom right of the screen).
Other than that, this game is as simple to use and enjoy as most other Betsoft slots. The sea shell and underwater animal icons at the bottom of the reels make up the control panel. Hit the pink sea shell to spin the reels, hit the yellow starfish to put down the maximum bet and spin at the same time (you might as well do this, as all spins are free of charge here anyway!).
Special Features and Ways to Win
Under the Sea isn’t, when compared to other Betsoft games, jam-packed full of special features. There’s a Wild symbol (the open clam shell with a perfect, shiny pearl inside it) and a Scatter symbol (the sunken ship). The Scatter symbol triggers the Free Spins rounds.
What will be of more interest to Free Slots Pro fans is the interactive Treasure Chest Bonus Game, triggered by three or more Treasure Chest symbols landing anywhere on the reels after a single spin. The Treasure Chest has been cast off from the sunken ship and is now lying on the seafloor packed with riches. Your job is to hunt it down and find the treasure.
Music, Audio and Graphics
Although this isn’t one of Betsoft’s cutting-edge 3D games, it does have lots of appeal in terms of fun animations and attractive and cheerful characters on the reels. The fish party, laugh and dance when they land on activated paylines. The game’s summery music and beachy audio and atmosphere puts you in the mood for a vacation.
The Last Word
We give this underwater slot a seven out of ten. It’s well-constructed, entertaining and fun. It would have gotten more points if it had had more special features.
