Under the Sea Game Characteristics
Under the Sea has a coral reef setting for its partitioned, green-framed 5X3 grid. The bubbles on the margins show the 30 left-to-right adjustable paylines.

Under the Sea has ten symbols. Three special symbols: the wins-multiplying substitute is a submerged “wild” oyster shell containing a pearl; the free games-unlocking scatter is a treasure-filled brown shipwreck; and the click-and-reveal bonus game-triggering feature is a submerged, rusty treasure chest.
Seven ordinary symbols: blonde mermaid; and smiling green-and-black fish, yellow fish, purple fish, clownfish, brown trout, and purple whale.

Sound effects: trilling, creaking, and bubbling. The cinematic 3D graphics: effervescence, shimmering ocean, self-opening chests, swaying sea weed, ascending blobs, wriggling fish, and seeping sunlight.
