20,000 Leagues Slots is a gorgeous under sea slot that is a little wonky around the edges but has a bold pop to it all that keeps things fresh and interesting. It combines well done art with solid game play mechanics and decent pay outs. We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with it, mostly wishing that they’d integrated the reel graphics a bit more, as some feel a bit floaty and out of place.
If you like money, hate sharks, and love the sea, this game’s for you. You’re the target audience, so jump right in so they can have the marketing data they need to make more.
The premise of 20,000 Leagues Slots is 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, or so they claim. It’s more like Jaws Lite, which is okay by us. Everything is more towards that end, sans the suits of cards. Maybe fish play poker? We’re not sure, but they’re there cluttering up the graphics alongside all else.
Graphics in 20,000 Leagues Slots are bold and fine. Everything is crisp, clear, colorful, and compelling to look at, which makes your time spent playing all the easier because of how easy they are on the eyes. The sharks look like they could get you and everything comes together well enough. The suits of cards are not very well done by comparison, but they’re better than nothing and we don’t blame them for that.
The UI is nothing to write home about, but it doesn’t get in the way of the game, so we’re okay with it. Logo’s a little plain too.
Gameplay in 20,000 Leagues Slots is standard. At 5 reels and 25 pay lines, it does not break the mold there, chosing instead to keep things classy in ways we can respect.
Betting here ranges from a penny to $10, making this an accessible slot that anyone can jump into in hopes of winning a lot of money without worrying about necessarily breaking the bank in the process. Max bets cap out at $250, which tends to be how we rolled when we played it a bunch for our review. We love that we can bet high here, as we found ourselves getting lucky most of the time.
The bonus round is nonexistent, instead giving you free spins. That’s fine, as that’s what we mainly want in a slot anyway, aside from those spins turning up good.

Who is this Game For?
This game is suitable for players of all types. In particular, it should appeal to:
* Players new to digital slots and looking for something relatively accessible
* Moderate intensity players that have gotten their feet plenty wet in the online slots world and are looking for something a little more involved
* Jaded slot vets
* People that mostly want to win a bunch of money playing digital slot games
* Players looking for slot nostalgia for the similarities and differences this slot has to other games
* People more used to normal video games that are looking to get their feet wet in the world of online slots
Who is the Game NOT For?
Although we enjoy this slot, it is not for everybody. In particular, it may not be your cup of tea if this describes you in any fashion:
* Averse to winning money online
* Looking for something truly innovative in the genre
* You find the theme in any way offputting
Is it Buggy?
In the time we spent playing this game, we did not encounter any bugs, problems, or errors. The same cannot be said for all slots of this genre, so we commend the developers for a job well done on that. We also encountered no issues in processing winnings or payments, and everything ran very smooth just like you would expect across many varied devices in a variety of ecosystems and operating systems.
20,000 Leagues Slots is an underwater themed game that doesn’t exactly sink, but doesn’t swim all that far either. If you like the ocean and bold graphics and sharks, this game’s for you. If you hate sharks, this game’s also for you because it’s somewhat like Jaws in that it’s themed around killing theme. If you like money, feel free to jump right in, as it paid out fairly well. There isn’t anything overtly wrong with the game, so we can give it an easy recommendation.
If you’ve got some spare time and aren’t in a position to swim that far down in the ocean, this game will fit the bill just nicely. Just don’t play it underwater. Sharks will stare at you and it’ll get weird, like eating beef on a farm.
