Atlantis Rising, but the Wilds are in this new release from Las Vegas-based SpinPlay, creators of Amazing Link Zeus and 9 Blazing Diamonds. This time the partnership with Microgaming has brought players something different with Wild Blasts, Free Spin Picks, and Rising Wilds features that look like a lot of random, bubbly fun.
Atlantis Rising has a majestic look and sound to it. The soundtrack would fit well in any epic fantasy movie. The colours are vivid blues, purples, pinks, and greens. The underwater background is filled with trident-wielding, fully armoured statues and brilliantly coloured jellyfish.
The low-pay symbols are three different gemstone runes. The high-pay symbols are the King, the mermaid, the sea turtle, the jellyfish, and seahorses. These are all beautifully drawn symbols worthy of an underwater kingdom. The compass is the regular wild symbol, and the Trident is the scatter symbol.
The Rising Wilds in Atlantis Rising are shimmery rainbow bubbles that appear randomly, float over the game grid, and settle in a reel. After each spin, the bubbles move up one position until they disappear off the top of the grid. Wherever the bubbles alight, that symbol becomes the wild for that spin. Rising Wilds very often has multiple bubbles on the grid at once, therefore multiple wilds.
This can lead to numerous winning paylines, but as noted above, only the highest win pays out. The Wild Blast feature is activated by a Rising Wild bubble overlaying the regular compass wild symbol. This causes all adjacent symbols to become wilds or 2x multiplier wilds. This is only for one spin, though, and these wilds do not become rising wilds.

The Free Spins Pick Feature in Atlantis Rising occurs when players land at least three Trident scatter symbols, although it’s possible to land up to five. The more scatters landed, the more bubbles players get to pick from to win free spins. Three scatters award ten picks, four scatters award 15 picks, and five scatters award 20 picks. Players go to a screen with rising bubbles and the chance to pop the number they won based on the number of scatters they landed. Each bubble contains a possible 1-5 free spins or 2-3 additional bubble picks.
The Free Spins Pick Feature can be retriggered during the free spin round, and these free spins are added to the number remaining, which can lead to a phenomenal number of free spins.
Atlantis Rising is perfect for casual or new players who are looking for enjoyable, engaging graphics and easy-to-understand game mechanics. There’s no rocket science here, but Rising Wilds is a fun game to spend some time with. The sounds and graphics are decent, and the Rising Wilds, Wild Blast, and Free Spin Pick feature keep the game interesting.
The stakes are lower, which means players won’t lose or win large amounts but can just enjoy playing the game.

The low to medium volatility means that high-rollers looking for that adrenaline rush should probably play something else. But it’s a great way to get started for players new to video slots or for those looking to while away some time without needing to re-mortgage their house.
