Octopays Slot

Play for real money

Dive deep underwater in Octopays, an aquatic video slot from Microgaming. This peaceful slot gives you 243 ways to win as well as an intense free spins feature. You can see Octopays in action for free right here on this page, or sign up at any of the below Microgaming casinos if you'd like to play for real money.

Before you start spinning, choose a bet size you're comfortable with. You can simply use the arrows beside the “Bet” meter to do this, or break it down into coin size and coins per line by clicking on the word “Bet”. Push “Spin” to begin, or use “Auto Play” to spin without interruption in a way that works for you.

As the various symbols swim down the reels, you'll receive payouts for getting matching symbols from the leftmost reel to the right. Since Octopays uses the 243 ways structure, symbols just need to be on adjacent reels to pay out. The Wild Octopus appears on reels 2 and 4, making it easier to score wins.

If you get both Wild Octopi on a single spin, you'll trigger the Kraken Feature. This triggers 12 free spins with all sorts of extra wilds. If the Scary Fish appears, all Octopi will “ink” themselves and transform into 2x wilds.

I first came to hear about this game many years ago, from a friend, but I wasn't really interested in Microgaming games, so I never bothered about it. Then I heard about it again, this time in Askgamblers forum, about 3 years or so ago, and that caught my interest a little bit. Not a lot though, just a little bit, but enough to make me play on the game for the first time to try it out. Was it good the first time? Well, for some other thing, the first time is always the best, hahaha, but where Octopays was concerned, nah, it wasn't that good. I didn't win anything that time. Only after several more plays on the game did I finally made my first small win on Octopays, with a 100+x bet win. Since then, I did play Octopus on and off, not often, but rarely.

Octopus is the Wild symbol in the base game, appearing only on reels 2 and 4, and triggering the Kraken Feature game when both appears. It's a Free Spins game by another name. What disappoints me the most is that this Wild symbol is a totally dumb Wild symbol. It doesn't pay for itself, it doesn't double any wins, it doesn't become stacked, it doesn't expand, it only substitute other symbols except for the Kraken symbol. Worse still, there are no Scatter symbol in the game, thereby losing even more winning chances. No wins for Wilds. No wins for Scatters. Sheesh! As for the other symbols in the game, the Chest pays 26.6x the total bet, the Diver's Helmet pays 20x, the Shark pays 13.3x, the Anchor pays 6.6x and the rest pay from 5x down to 3.3x, all per total bet for 5 of each kind. Sad to say, but Octopays has a very low paytable, and that doesn't look good at all to me.

When the Octopus lands on reels 2 and 4 at the same time, the Kraken Feature game is triggered. 12 free spins are awarded but without any multiplier. Each free spin may get up to 4 Octopus Wilds randomly placed onto the reels, except on reel 3, where the Kraken may appear. All wins with the Kraken Wild are doubled, but all wins with the Octopus Wild are not doubled. The Free Spins game cannot be retriggered. What the argh! This Free Spins game, without any multiplier , without any retriggers, and with only 1 win-doubling Wild symbol, makes for an uninteresting feature game. Very disappointing indeed!
Just as I had expected, the very low paytable, plus the poor winning chances in the Free Spins game, all added up to disappointing game plays. From the many Free Spins games that I had won and played so far, not one single win was above the 100x bet mark, excluding my earlier 100x win some years ago. Although some decent wins of 30x - 50x could be won, those simply weren't good enough to compensate for all the lost money the game had eaten up. Nosirree. Octopays shall remain in the deep waters for me. It isn't worth playing at all.

Octopays is 5 reels and 243 ways to win video slot game from Microgaming software and the only thing that I loved about it was the serene music, nothing more. Since this is a 243 ways to win slot I had, not very high, but I had some expectations from it. This turns out to be a very boring slot, and not impressive at all. I had some great experiences with similar games to this one, but not with this exact slot.
The payouts during the base game are not that impressive. I wanted to see the free spins round because usually games can surprise you during the free spins. But, I have lost almost all of my money and there was no sign of free spins. So I thought I will continue playing the game even though I will not win anything. It was so obvious. The octopus symbol appears only on the second and the fourth reel and the free spins are triggered only if these two symbols appear at the same time. At first I thought it would be easy to trigger the free spins since all you need are two scatters, but no. It took me more than 400 spins to trigger the free spins. I got 16 euros in one spin and all of the other spins were empty. I triggered the free spins again and got only 32.80 euros.

Later I was getting free spins more often but I was not able to return all the money that I have lost while playing this slot. I did play on a min bet per spin, but still this is so little. My balance was dropping so fast so eventually I was moneyless and I could not continue playing the game. I do not think that I will play this video slot game again because there are so many games that are more interesting than this one.
Octopays is great game made by Microgaming. I play it sometimes because I love how this game looks.

I like how this game looks, and also I really love theme. Ocean, and those cutest things in the world - octopuses(very small octopuses!). I sometimes love to see on youtube on some animals, and few times I saw octopuses, this creatures is really cute.

I like that there is 243 lines, but it is a bit different from regular games. There is no huge payouts on symbols, there is no stacked or expanding wilds. Very easy to play without praying for wilds. Wilds by the way here appears only on reels 2 and 4.

I like freespins feature. It is triggered when wilds on reels 2 and 4 appears in same time. For this you got awarded with 12 freespins. During freespins big octopus or kracken or how to call this big a bit scary creature add on reels more wilds on any reels, just by random. Also there can appear fish on reel 3 which also wild and multiply wins by 2. Very decent feature, couple of times I won more than 100 bets on it.

Normal play seems not so great, and I never wins more than 20 bets in it. But such wins come really frequent and did not allow game to steal lot of money from balance. Feature seems the key to hit something good. I rate this game with 9 stars. There is only thing I will list in thumbs down. But overall it is very good game.
I took one star from rating because payouts during normal play is very low and you can't get any really super mega big win. Just many small wins which can be good and do not allow you to lose fast, but time after time and I got tired from such small wins.
Octopays it is interesting microgaming slot, which of course also presented at quickfire casinos, so places where to play this game is more than enough.

Well, it is pleasure to describe you about another 243 lines slot game by microgaming, which is different from typical 243 lines games, and which I am like.

At base game there is no any special feature. There is wilds on this slots, but wilds appear only on reels 2 and 4, and do not have any special feature, and do not have any multipliers. Also due to low amount of wilds, base payouts are very good and big, top paying symbol paying something like 150 x total bet if I remember paytable of this game without any mistakes.

There is special freespins feature at this slot game, it can be triggered when wilds land on reels 2 and 4 at same time. 12 freespins awarded, and freespins are awesome feature here. First of all, before start of each spin big cracken can place up to 4 wilds on reels. At 243 lines game it can make really good payout. Also at reel 3 can appear special fish, which is also wild and has 2 x multiplier. So generally, while playing freespins you just need to get 4 wilds, and hope for a fish at middle reel - this will give awesome payout, due to good payouts of usual symbols, and due to 2x multiplier.

My experience with slot is great, I played it a lot times, and have many features more than 100 x total bet. Best one was about 350x total bet, and it is still not perfect result, but very good. I never saw 4 wilds placed during freespins, but many times has 3 wilds plus special fish on middle reel. I like this game, and it is great to enjoy it, one of the best microgaminmg 243 lines game, if exclude the dark knight, immortal romance, and thunderstruck II.
Sometimes it is hard to get freespins feature, lot of spins required.
This is another 243 ways to win slot from Microgaming, the minimum bet is 0.30 euro and I played it a couple of times. I want to say that I like the symbols of this slot, also the theme is very interesting and entertaining. With 17 euro left in my 32Red Casino account, I opened this slot and I started to spin. The Kraken feature appeared very early, only a couple of minutes passed, I was awarded 12 free spins, I was expecting to win a small amount because I trigger it too early, but no, it gave me a decent win of 26 euro. About 30 minutes later, I triggered again the free spins but this time gave me only 11 euro and my account balance started to decrease. There is no bonus game in this slot, so you have smaller chances to win decent amounts, also there is a wild symbol but it appears only on reels 2 and 4.

I didn’t like that they chose to put poker cards symbols in this slot, the theme was great but I think that these symbols haven’t got their place here. I will give a 9 for the graphics, I will play this slot more often because I am tired already to play Immortal Romance and Thunderstruck II and to not win something.

The features aren’t so good because there is no bonus game or a random feature as the Immortal Romance or other 243 ways slot have, only a wild that appears only on reels 2 and 4 and doesn’t pay so well, I will give only a 7.
The payout rate isn’t so good, only 4 symbols are paying well in the main game, the other ones, the cards symbols are paying small amounts, I don’t like it so I will give only a 6!
Octopays is shortened for "Octopus Pays" ( According to me ) and one can take that in literal sense too because in this lot actually the octopus pays you some hard cash. This is another Microgaming slot with 243 ways to win and 5 reels. The theme of the slot is set amid the deep sunken ship where there are different sea animals that have found their residence in this ship. All the symbols are inspired from the sea animals like Octopus and other small fishes and also from equipment found on a ship.

As one would expect from a 243 ways to win slot, this slot has average to good returns on the base game. From good i mean almost 25X the total bet on the base game itself which is much greater then other slots. I have always been fond of MG slots because they not only offer good graphics and sound but also a feature rich slot with very good returns... This slot is no different and apart from the base game it has a feature that can give you hefty amounts of cash. Also, a noticeable thing on the slot is that there are no scatter symbols or you can say the wild symbol is the scatter symbol itself and appears only on reel 2 and 4. If the wild symbol simultaneously appears on reel 2 and 4 it triggers the bonus game called " The kraken Bonus round" where a giant octopus appears from behind the reels to award you some cash. The bonus round gives you 12 free spins with the giant octopus from behind the reels placing up to 4 random wilds on reels 1,2,4 and 5. On third reel appears an extra wild in the bonus game which when appears gives you 2X your winning combinations. Every spin the wilds are placed on new reels giving you greater winnings on whole. Although the slot promises for up to 4 extra wilds on the slot , i personally have not got more then 2 of them on the reels but still accompanies with an extra wild on reel 3 and 243 ways to win you will at least end up 100X your total bet. The returns from the slot sometimes are disappointing to and my lowest being just 10X bet which was $6 on a bet of $0.6 per spin. i would say average pay out from the bonus game is about 50X of the total bet.

Recently , i was playing on comeon casino on the same slot and i triggered the bonus round which paid me approx. $60 on a bet of $0.3 per spin which is almost 200X the bet. Luckily i have the screenshot for the same which i will upload here too. Overall this slot will keep you entertained for quite some time and i would give it definitely a 9 on 10.

Octopays is microgaming slot, and it was released back in 2013. I remember myself spinning and spinning this slot a lot of time on different microgaming casino, and right now i realize that i do it almost with every new game, lol, i am addictive to new games or something like this, because i am always play new games just right after it is released. Also i believe that i am lucky player for new games, because most times i am finish with nice profit.

When octopays was released, i start with redbet casino and 50$ deposit. So 50$ to play new slot, it is always good. I play at 0.60 probably 4-5 hours, and finish with 320$ on my balance, which was paid on my skrill account in 5 minutes. Okay, now i have even more money, and i just continue play this game at different casinos. Did not had a lot of luck, but i remember that i finish that first day with around 300$ + in winnings. Believe or not, but i am usually win on new slots, except new netent games, last one good for me was wild rockets, won 500$+ on first day. Octopays has 243 lines, and i am happy that it has not many wilds, only on 2 and 4 reels, by the way feature triggered when they come in one spin. Payouts for single 5 of a kind is good, because as i say there are not many wilds. Feature is amazing, big octopus can place more wilds on reels, or on middle reel can appear another one fishy wild. This is exactly game which i need, because variance is medium, and because i like the games when 5 of a kind pay something more than 10 x bet.

Conclusion: Really great game, with interesting feature, and medium variance. It is always nice to give this octopuses few spins, and few times they save my balance from zero result. I recommend this game and i give it 9 stars, almost 10, but 10 only for legends :)

I tried Octopays slot several times on my gambling sessions in microgaming casinos.The slot is 243 ways and features sea world and all sort of underwater animal symbols.It is relatively newer slot and very nicely designed.

My first time on octopays was when i had big wagering requirements so i jumped from slot to slot to check which one will be most suitable for wagering my bonus.Unfortunately octopays was not the one i was looking for. I played it for around an hour but won only one the kraken feature(free spins) and few small 3 of kind wins.There was a lot of empty spins that brought nothing and the free spins i won did not payed closely enough to get me to stay on octopays slot.

Free spins are triggered when you get octopus on reels 2 and 4,you get 12 free spins and during them a little tentacle comes out and places octopus wild on different reels except on reel 3. If the octopus does not pay it swims away.On reel 3 ugly fish may appear and act as wild and if you have it together with octopus in a wining combination they get inked and multiple win by 2. I had no luck in free spins and that octopus always landed where it did not complete any win and just swam away after.

Other then kraken bonus there is no other cool bonuses on this slot so it is pretty boring to play it for a long time.I guess it is for those people who don't really care about bonus features and just want to win base game wins.I am definitely not among those people and i like slots that have many bonus features to keep me entertained and focused to keep playing it.

For my conclusion i will rate it in my 3 categories.First payouts did not impress me at all(could be just my bad luck though) and i rate them 6/10,second fun i had playing on this slot rate is 4/10 and the last win big with small bets i rate 5/10

Octopays is a way wins of 243 paylines video slot. I appreciate the background and the light music Microgaming made for Octopays but to tell you the truth I don't see myself using this for wagering requirements or playing it for hours.

One thing I know is it got me very bored to start off and the closest wins I have received had been only for 4 of a kind combinations on base game. The 5 of a kind cannot be seen in this underwater adventure when I placed it for $0.90 bets. I tried to play it for 20 minutes more then I started to lower my bets to $0.60. There are much more pays appearing in this bet including the scattered wild octopus. That is one of the things that made me disinterested in the slot...it is because there are just two wilds on Reels 2 and 4 that occur typically almost never. The wilds aren't all over the place to create winnings easier.They act as both the Scatter and Wild of Octopays. Microgaming should of at least made these wild octopus' stacked. I know it's probably easy for the trigger but had they thought of two more wilds attached at both ends of this octopus it can be easy to make winnings and produce a feeling that I may or may not hit a home run on the trigger. Just a broken part of stacks showing on both reels of 2 & 4 would make hitting the trigger effortless at least by 40%. That's the idea I would want on this slot to say the least. Wild and scattered octopus' are always hiding in the dark and most likely in each spin I made I would have to line the combinations naturally without the assistance of wilds. Many other successes can overpower Octopays because they do so well at paying in the main game and have a HIGHER chance of hitting the feature.

The Octopays feature is a very hard to come by Kraken feature that gave me 12 free spins only. It featured wild octopuses on random positions to create winning combinations.....they aren't held sticky for the duration unfortunately. When there is a symbol of an eel on Reel 3 it gives not only a substitute win of 2x but if I find there are octopuses on the reels, these orange fellows produce ink that doubled the win I have. I only had $31 total from 12 Free spins and this trigger took 45 spins before I can get it. Good music, nice underwater background, tough to land Kraken Feature, ideal bet of $0.60 is recommended and less than decent wild octopus appearances. The Underwater wonder of Octopays has been granted a fair 5.3 out of 10! Diving into "other" way win slots know the true definition of paying out!
I don't really like to bash a slot since every user has different experiences with one mainly due to the luck element. However, Octopays must be one of the most boring slots I've ever played. Before I started to play this game I had high expectations since it was a 243 ways to win slot from Microgaming.

I've had some very good results with games like Immortal Romance, Dark Knight, The Finer Reels of Life and some other games with the same concept. However, those experiences weren't reflected by Octopays at all. I've played this game with a bankroll of 400 euros on 90 cents bets. The minimum bet size on this game is 30 cents by the way.

The game features several fishes and treasures you would be able to find in the deep ocean. On reels 2 and 4 the octopus symbol appear. These two symbols trigger the free spins if they appear at the same spin. You would think it would be easier to trigger the free spins, since you only need 2 scatters.

However, it took me like 800 spins to trigger the bonus feature. During my game play I did have lots of smaller wins though of 20x, 30x bet size and that was prolly the only reason why I wasn't close to go bust. Anyway, when those two scatters appear the Kraken feature gets triggered which is 12 free spins and random wilds that can be placed on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5.

Unfortunately all I won was small combinations and the symbols that got turned wild didn't have a huge effect on my winning. I won like 40x bet size during free spins thanks to x2 multiplier.

Quite shameful considering I had spent like 340 euros on it to only win 36 back. Well, that's just sometimes the way it is. Needless to say I never played this game again after this mental and financial catastrophe lol.

Octopays gets a 5/10 rating from me.

The only video slot, in my opinion that pays average big with 243 winlines. First time i played this game was at betat online casino. Little octopuses appear on reel 2 and 4 and trigger the free spins feature. When the feature is triggered, the big octopus appears on the background and the free spins start with random wild symbols (sometimes they don't appear thou).

My experience with the free spins was great, on the third free spin, i got 3 wild symbols on reel 1 and 2 and 3 wild symbols on reel 4 and 5 and that was my first big win with this video slot. Big win? Yes it was very big, it could be bigger if the eel appeared on reel 3, the eel symbol double your winning. but unfortunately it did not appear.

This game is the only one i know that just needs 2 scatter/wild symbols to trigger the bonus feature. I wonder if the free spins can be re-triggered in the free spins feature itself? The wild symbols unfortunately are not sticky wild because otherwise you can win a large of amount of money with this game.

The biggest win i ever won with this game was 130 euro with only 0,60 per bet/stake. It''s a pity that not every online casino has this game on their game list.
I know this game for a few months but I played it very often because i find it very joyable. The soundtrack is fantastic to hear and the graphics are quite high.

Although the game is very simple but i can play it for hours. In fact i have played this game for more than 3 hours. Why? I don't know, maybe because of the music that hypnotize your brain but still i find it a great game to play, for fun or winning. Either way, i also recommend this one for all my fellow gamblers. I am sure you will enjoy this game as i did. but that''s just my opinion.
Octopays was released in 2013 or even 2012 year by microgaming ( unfortunately can not remember on which year , but this is not so important). When slot was just released, i am obviously decide to try it out on 32red casino ( best microgaming casino i believe, so i like to test out new games from microgaming there).

I should say that i am always like 243 lines games, and octopays offer this 243 lines + wild on 2 and 4 reels. Also if you managed to hit this octopuses on 2 and 4 reels in one time, of course you will get freespins. I am always like to play this slot, because apart from many other 243 lines slot payouts for 5 of a kind is nice. In free spins you can even get more wilds, and you can get a fish symbol to get another wild and multiplier.

I should say also that i had mixed emotions and mixed experience with this slot, i had absolutely amazing runs on this octopays slot, and had incridible bad runs. Best run was probably a year ago, when i deposit 30$ and took 100% bonus, i play only this slot with different bets, and managed to finish wagering requirements with sweet 300$ which i withdraw. Worst run was when i lost 120$ balance at 0.60 bets without getting this octopuses on 2 and 4 reels in one time, oh i was soooo angry, you can not even imagine how angry.

I definitely like this slot and if you never try it i recommend you to do this. Also if you bored with slot machines like thunderstruck II and immortal romance, or dark knight and playboy, this slot will be sweet for you, because it has absolutely another idea, it works another, and of course you can not get 'shitstorm' on this slot :) Really, i think this is one of the best microgaming release that i can remember, and i am proud that when it was just released i was one of the first who try this slot.
