A Calming Slot Featuring a Free Spins Bonus Feature and ‘Close Enough’ Added Boosts
In a day and age where meditation and calming techniques are high on many people’s agenda, Sea of Tranquillity will be the perfect slot for many. All of the symbols relate to relaxation and sleep, which is certainly an original idea for a slot. On the reels you’ll find a ship gliding through space, fireflies, an owl in the moonlight, a sleeping moon and a nightcap (as in the hat, not the drink!). A serene and beautiful looking lady also features as one of the leading lights of the game.
Sea of Tranquillity is an ideal slot to enjoy after one of those busy days, with the following range of features:

Although the base game features three symbols on each reel when the spinning stops, you’ll also find glimpses of the symbols above and below each reel. You might at first think this is a little frustrating, as it simply shows you what you might have won. But you’ll soon realise it’s much better than that.
Any time a wild symbol appears in one of the ‘Close Enough’ spots, it will then expand to fill the entire reel. This can be a huge boost, especially when you consider that there wasn’t a single wild on the reel outside of the ‘Close Enough’ area.
When a bonus feature appears in the ‘Close Enough’ it will then move onto the reels, ensuring that the free spins feature is made that much easier to activate.
The bonus symbol features a golden moon against a red background, and in keeping with the rest of the slot, he is happily asleep. To activate the free spins, you’ll need to land two or more bonus symbols on adjacent reels from left to right, with the following awards.
During the free spins, the ‘Close Enough’ feature continues, adding wild reels to the spins, as well as giving you the opportunity to retrigger the feature at any time.
With five reels and 30 win-lines, the cost of each spin is 30 credits, with players opting to choose the coin value that works for them. The highest paying symbol in the game is the wild, which appears as a green comet. As well as substituting for any other symbol apart from the bonus scatter, it will pay 1,000 coins for the maximum five in a row. Being stacked so often (due to the ‘Close Enough’ feature) you can hit these big wins over a number of lines.
Similarly, the top three standard symbols in the game are stacked three high. These feature the serene lady, the ship in the night sky and the owl. A golden compass, the fireflies and the nightcap make up the mid-paying symbols, while playing card symbols complete the low end of the pay table.
The background to this WMS designed shows a purple space-like scene, featuring a succession of planets, one much like Saturn with its rings. The purple colouring does give this scene a dream-like feel, with this theme continued onto the reels. The sound track is gentle and has an ambient feel – check out the echoey sound effect of a single drop of water falling into a lake whenever you hit up one of the menus.
Sea of Tranquillity is an enjoyable and original slot. In a world where slot gaming is usually fast paced and energetic, the pace is slowed nicely here, and you have a very different slot experience. The ‘Close Enough’ feature adds to the individuality of the game, while free spins are always a winner. This is the perfect game for your final slot session of the day.
