Sea of Tranquillity

Sea of Tranquillity by WMS

Sea of Tranquillity is a new game that WMS brought out in late 2015. It has the usual five reels and thirty paylines, all of which are optional. Each line can be played for as little as 0.01 up to 5 coins. The highest bet value is 150 coins per sins for all of the lines. This makes Sea of Tranquillity a very appealing game to players of all budgets. The modern graphics and smooth game play will appeal to players of all experiences too, since the game is simple enough to be enjoyed by beginners but detailed enough for advanced players.

Smooth Graphics

Sea of Tranquillity is a very new game, and this can be seen in the graphics. The game loads with a very pretty animated moon which could be taken straight from an animated movie. The rest of the game follows suite, with symbols and a background that look like a children’s book illustration. The background to the reels is a purple lunar scene which shows the pale cream reels off to their best advantage. The player info at the bottom of the screen is also theme based, and has been done in purple swirls reminiscent of a dream scape. The music that accompanies the reels is very relaxing, and may put you to sleep if you are tired or playing the game late at night.

Dreamy Lunar Theme

The premise behind Sea of Tranquillity is the moon and sleep time. The actual Sea of Tranquillity is a basin on the moon’s surface that is surrounded by high lunar peaks. In the case of Sea of Tranquillity the slot, we are more focussed on the moon as a catalyst for sleep and a home to the Man in the Moon. The reels are filled with symbols such as nightcaps, lightning bugs, ships, owls, a woman and a time dial. The base symbols are from a deck of poker cards and are quite standard except for being done in different colours.

Close Enough Feature

Sea of Tranquillity has a nifty little feature that has just been created by Williams Interactive. Dubbed the Close Enough feature, this feature is essentially an activator for special features such as scatters.  Above and below the active game is a limited view of the adjacent row and the symbols that fall on it during a spin. If a wild or a scatter fall here they will still become active even though it is technically not in the game. Wilds that benefit from this feature will become expanded to fill the whole reel.

Wilds and Free Spins

The wilds in Sea of Tranquillity are expanding and stacked. If they appear on a reel they will expand to cover the whole reel. They will also do this if they are activated by the Close Enough feature. Wilds can replace any other symbol on the reels except the scatter.

The scatter in Sea of Tranquillity is a sleepy looking crescent man in the moon. This guy can be found on all reels, and will grant a certain amount of free spins depending on how many scatters were displayed. Along with the spins will come a multiplier that can go up to as much as 25x. During the free spins round the owl the girl and the ship will all substitute for each other, essentially creating their own little wild pack. This can be retriggered by finding two r more scatters during the round.
