Get Ready To Battle Relax Gaming’s Sea God

Read out impartial review of the Relax Gaming pokie known as Sea God

British developer Relax Gaming and Stakelogic came together and created the Sea God pokie. The game revolves around the Greek sea god Poseidon and takes place in his underwater realm. Sea God is suited to those who are not fans of high variance machines but who want a little more risk than a poker machine offering low volatility.

We put the game, which comes to an online casino near you on June 3, 2021, through rigorous testing. This is what we found.

Sea God Fundamentals

Most online pokies play out on a 5×3 real, but Sea God is different. Relax Gaming opted for a 5×4 layout with 20 possible win lines. It is good to see developers stray from the norm because it keeps matters fresh for players.

The 5×4 layout expands to 5×9 during the Super Reels feature; we touch on that later on.

Sea God comes with medium volatility and a 17% hit rate as standard. That hit frequency means you should see a winning combination every five to six spins, on average. All this adds up to a 95.21% RTP, so a house edge of 4.79%. This is certainly not the worst out there, although there is room for improvement.

Recreational player and seasoned pokie pros are well-catered for with a range of bet sizes. They range from $0.20 per spin up to $100. We are a little disappointed with the maximum payout, however. The maximum win per spin is only 1,162x your bet, so between $232.40 and $116,200.

Sea God Symbols

It should not come as a surprise that everything about Sea God is water-themed. The game takes place underwater, inside the lair of the legendary Poseidon. There are ten paying symbols in total, with royals (jacks through aces) making up the low-value symbols. Higher-value symbols include the game’s logo, horses, dolphins, ships, silver coins, and a Pantheon.

You need a minimum of three matching symbols to trigger a win, with five the most you can match.

Poseidon himself represents the wild symbol. It substitutes for any other regular symbols and can, along with any other symbol, land stacked on reels, making full grid combinations possible.

What Are The Game’s Features?

Being able to gain a boost with the Super Stake option is one of the first things you notice about Sea God. Choosing Super Stake doubles your bet, which increases the maximum cost to $200 and boosts the pokie’s stats.

The RTP increases slightly to 95.23% and the hit rate to 19.72%. This, in turn, reduces variance ever so slightly. Furthermore, Super Stake makes landing bonus symbols more likely, increasing your chances of landing the free spins feature to 1 in 43 spins.

Those free spins trigger after landing three, four, or five scatter symbols anywhere on the board during the base game. You receive eight free spins regardless of how many scatters triggered the feature, but they come with a 2x, 10x, and 50x prize, respectively.

The free spins bonus starts on a 5×4 layout but expands to 5×9 if a scatter drops on the middle reel. It stays like this for three spins while adding an extra three free spins to your tally.

Super Reels is what Sea God refers to when the reels expand to 5×9. This happens randomly and locks in place for three spins, extending your win lines to 45. Stacked symbols land with a higher frequency during Super Reels.


Relax Gaming got the visuals and sounds correct with Sea God. The game looks and sounds great. The random Super Reels feature is cool, and the free spins rewarding, especially with Super Reels in play.

But, and it is a Kim Kardashian-sized but, the mathematics model is all wrong. The RTP is on the low side, which is half expected with a medium variance machine. A per cent or two higher would make Sea God more appealing.

The 1,162x maximum payout is meagre compared to most pokies you find in online casinos, even ones with low-to-medium variance. Sea God is fun to play, do not get us wrong, it just is not financially rewarding and does not even pretend to be so.
