Game: Fu Ru Dong Hai
Advantage play potential: Medium
What Makes it Special: Bubbles are wild, but landing atop an Fu Ru Dong Hai symbol makes a lot more wilds appear. Bubbles hang around until they’ve moved off the screen, even if a player cashes out.
Last week, I talked about an Asian-themed clone of Icy Wilds. This week, I’ve got the Ocean Magic equivalent, Fu Ru Dong Hai. Ocean Magic fans will find a lot to like about this, mainly because it’s the same thing 😉
Understanding the Game
The game is a 50 line, 50 credit base game. But for double the bet, you can activate the Bubble Boost, which provides more bubbles more often.
Bubbles can be added on any spin, and each spin move up one square on its reel. Once it reaches the top of the reel, on the following spin it goes away.
The Bubble Boost can trigger on any spin, and will place one or more bubbles onto the screen, adding to whatever may be already present. On the non Bubble Boost bets, they can float on and off the screen, but are added with less frequency.
Bubbles serve as a wild space, adding to their value, but it’s when they overlay a Fu Ru Dong Hai symbol. At that point, all of the spaces around that symbol, including diagonally, fill with a bubble, with bubbles continuing to remain wild.
Depending on the placement and what lines up as a result of it, the pays can be pretty great.
Free Spins Bonus
Three or more bonus symbols trigger the free spins, which works the same as Ocean Magic – you get picks based on the number of symbols landed, and those picks can yield spins or more picks. When you exhaust your picks the free spins will begin.
The same Wilds Feature exists in the bonus round, so if you overlap a bubble with a Fu Ru Dong Hai symbol bubbles will appear all around it.
Understanding the Advantage
You’re looking for left behind bubbles. The more of them, the closer to the bottom of the reel, and the more to the left they are, the better. Bubble Boost will be more likely to have them, given the frequency of bubbles initiated, but with as many as 10 betting options it helps to cycle through and see what’s available.
