Progressive jackpot history
Prepare to hear the Jaws theme music as you dive deep underwater to check out the great depths of the ocean in Playtech's Great Blue Jackpot slot. The game puts you deep underwater, where the blue water starts to become black. The game has some bold visuals, but also has progressive jackpots tied to it. The game has four prizes in total, and the Great Blue Shark Progressive Jackpot is the second-largest of these prizes.
The slot itself is a sequel of sorts to the popular Playtech game Great Blue, which very closely resembles this title. The game is completely underwater, with some air bubbles shooting up from the depths in an un-named ocean. The game's symbols include standard slot symbols (10, J, Q, K, A) as well as seahorses, starfish, angelfish, turtle, shark, oyster, and killer whale. The symbols look nice enough, but you can tell they are a bit dated, as newer games present their symbols in crisp high definition.
Features in the Great Blue Jackpot include wild symbols, scatters, and free spins. There isn't a gamble feature like the original game, which is a bit of a letdown. These features are more or less basic, but they do make the game more enjoyable than some other slots we've played recently.
The big reason to play this slot though is the progressive jackpots. The Whale Jackpot is the largest, and this Shark Jackpot is the second-largest. As of the publication of this write-up, the prize does get hit relatively frequently, with prizes ranging from a few thousand to well into the five-figure range. Smaller prizes like the Turtle and Fish Jackpots are hit more frequently, but offer smaller prizes as a result.
If you want to test your luck, then you should strap on some fins and jump off the boat with this interesting game from Playtech.
