Neptune Rising slot from Microgaming

Neptune Rising slot from Microgaming
In 2019 Microgaming collaborated with Plank Gaming studio and released the nautical Neptune Rising slot machine. It is featuring the stormy tempered mythological Roman God of the water and has nothing to do with the most distant and cold planet in the Solar System. The dark reels are set in front of a murky blue sea, only lit by a pale moonlight and the occasional thunder and lightning, naturally brought about by Neptune himself. The dramatic soundtrack guides you on your heroic way to the deep sea treasures you are chasing and amplifies the frowning atmosphere of the slot.

Besides notorious Neptune himself, you will find an unruffled, seductive siren, a peculiar seahorse, a treasure chest, and a decorated dolphin on the reels. But the one you want to see is Neptune’s trident, which represents the Wild and will pay the epic 900x the total stake when five of them land on a pay line. Neptune Rising slot machine is a Medium-High Volatility slot and comes with an RTP of 95.92% - slightly below industry standard but shouldn’t keep you from diving into it, as it has plenty of other positives which can be revealed to you.

Personal testers’ opinion

  • Although the animation of Neptune rising is beautifully executed, we did not fall in love with this slot for 2 reasons. Reason N: 1 is that there are more exciting games in Microgaming’s portfolio. Nowadays is difficult for newer slots, to live up to the players' expectations. We are all spoiled, aren’t we? Overall, it’s a standard slot and we don’t see something genius here, or let’s put it this way: the efforts made, do not bring something ‘new to the table’.
  • We think there is something wrong with the math model at Neptune Rising online slot. And that is our reason N: 2. The low number of paylines, the low hit frequency, plus low RTP, and long waiting for the Free Spins all works so that you are gradually losing your credits. The super-rich 5OAK combos for Wilds (900x the total bet) and for Scatters (750x the total bet) seem placed in the paytable just for the show, and the max potential of 5000x the total bet (claimed inside the game) is just too good to be true with this medium-high variance slot. You most certainly will not get the lucrative results mentioned above. The rising function pays decent in the base game, but not enough to bring recovery from the long series of losing spins. It is hard to trigger the Free Spins, and after rewarding you with some 80x -140x the total bet in them, the machine is just gulping those credits swiftly back if you don’t break your session.
  • Altogether, after multiple sessions with demo and real credits, we can conclude that the chance for large profit at Neptune Rising slot machine is very slim. We give neutral recommendations for bonus money wagering and for playing with real cash.


  • Wild Trident - It replaces all the symbols, other than Neptune Golden Coin Scatters.
  • Neptune Rising Feature - could be randomly activated in the main game and is constantly active on each spin in the Free Spins bonus.
  • In the main game - just when you’re disappointed by a non-winning spin, Neptune rises up from the waters and offers you a symbol to complete at least one winning combination. In case of nearly triggering Free Spins, Neptune will hand you the missing Scatter.
  • In the Free Spins - 3+ Neptune Golden Coin Scatters will award you 10 Free Spins, which can be re-triggered. During the bonus spins a boosted Neptune will rise every time, placing identical symbols on the first 2 or 3 reels. Those reels will be held while the remaining reels will re-spin, guaranteeing a win.
