Great Blue Overview

You'll first notice the sharp and excellent graphics when you launch Great Blue slot game. The graphics are pretty neat and quite advanced. Visually and aesthetically the game is quite soothing and calm. You will see bubbles appearing on the reels and surrounding them and this only adds to the feel that all action happens under water.

In terms of controls and user interface, the game is quite straightforward and user-friendly. There are five reels and three rows with a total of 25 paylines, so in that respect the game doesn’t differ much from other slots with a similar outline.

How To Play Great Blue

Great Blue appeals to players regardless of their bankroll. You can play this game with as little as 1p per payline, in which case your overall stake would come to just 25p. The maximum amount that you can wager per payline is £5 and in that case one spin would cost £125. However, if you play at a maximum stake rate you will be able to win much higher prizes, so if you are willing to take a risk and wager more, it might be worth it, provided that you manage to hit a nice winning combination.

 

You don’t have to activate every payline, i.e. you may decrease the number of active paylines and play with just one active line, or any number between one and 25. Bear in mind that if you decrease the number of active lines you won’t win anything if a winning combination is arranged across a payline that hasn’t been activated, so we suggest you decrease the amount you wager per payline, instead the number of active paylines.

 

There are few buttons that you can use if you want to set and adjust the stake per payline. First you can set the range that you want to wager per line, then there’s a second button (line bet) which gives you the opportunity to select the exact amount you would like to place. By pressing the ‘lines’ button you can alter the number of active paylines. Finally, there’s the ‘bet max’ button that you need to press if you want to bet at the highest stake under the currently selected option. There’s also an auto play button labelled ‘auto start’ and you can use the ‘+’ and ‘-‘ buttons to set the number of auto spins.
