Expedition for the Lost City has come to an end, Atlantis has been discovered in all its glory with all its riches up for grabs.
Red Tiger is a provider that doesn’t need an introduction, their games have already proven to be powerhouse additions to casino world entertainment and so once again, a new tale is born, this time taking place underwater. On the surface, Atlantis slot looks quite basic, but there are secrets and a certain beauty hidden deep below, so without further ado, let’s dive straight into this one.

Design and Gameplay
The visual style of Atlantis is similar to a lot of other Red Tiger games, it is cartoony, colorful, and bright. All the action, of course, is happening deep down below on the ocean floor. The layout is neatly placed between two ancient pillars, adding an extra layer of immersion.
In the backdrop, we can see remains of the Lost City itself, with gold and riches scattered around the seabed. To top everything off, music that we hear in the background can be summed up with one word – tranquility.
Atlantis uses Red Tiger’s very own RTG Core game engine, so there is no doubt about the performance of the game. It runs smoothly with stable FPS (Frames per Second), with an ensured quality across multiple platforms.
Symbols and Payouts
To keep up with the latest trends, Atlantis utilizes the Cascade mechanism, meaning that all the winning symbols disappear and are quickly replaced by new ones. This in return can add an extra fun factor to every spin as you can rack up a sweet win combination.
All symbols have different values. Four lowest symbols are card suits covered up as gems. The rest of the symbols are oceanic themed with the top symbol being the golden city, which pays 150x for a five of kind.
In total Atlantis offers 30 win lines, but the overall experience receives a serious enhancement from the Cascade feature, as this adds more chances. The game comes with a high hit rate and high volatility, so in theory, you shouldn’t run out of some good action. RTP is 95.77%, so we are walking a middle ground with this one. Max payout is just over 5000x and this seems to be their main selling point on this slot.
Still on the topic of payouts, what about ‘’pay in's’’? Well, they are nothing too revolutionary, betting range is 0.10 – 20EUR, once again an average rating.
Atlantis Bonus Features
Now that the main game is pretty much covered, let us get into the sweet part of it all, the hidden treasures, Atlantis Bonus features. Unfortunately, we only have 2 additional features with the first one being the Treasure Chest.
Treasure Chest is a random symbol that needs to drop at the bottom of the row to be activated. If it is not at the bottom on the first spin, when it lands, it will be on the next one, because it always carries over to the next spin. Once at the bottom, the Treasure chest will expand into a full reel wild. This wild will then stay on your screen for as long as you score a win. The said wild can also come with an extra multiplier reaching up to 5x. Only one Treasure Chest can be active at a time.
At the end of the day, it all comes down to the Golden Spins feature, this is where you will take most of the treasures. Landing three Gold Spin Scatters will trigger the feature. Suddenly the screen becomes covered with a golden glow and you know, that things are about to get really shiny.
We start with 10 Free Spins and landing an additional Gold Spin Scatter will award an extra one. Treasure Chests have a more serious role now, as the multiplier doesn’t reset, as it is in the base game. In theory, this means that the multiplier doesn’t have a set limit. For example, if you land your first chest with a 3x multiplier, the next chest will already start with 3x + 1-5x and so on.
Atlantis is an old soul trying to fit in a new world. The gameplay and features are quite basic and there is no real innovation overall. There is a feeling that most of high rollers and action seekers might skip this one....but they shouldn’t.
Atlantis brings in a classical approach to slots, and yes, we could argue that the Cascade feature is the only saving grace, but even without it, this slot can provide quality entertainment. Atlantis won’t please everyone, but it still can be a worthwhile experience.
