Neptune Rising – Plank Gaming – Review and play for free.
Plank Gaming’s Neptune Rising is a beautifully designed slot with a deeply evocative soundtrack and graphics.
This is a game you want to stick with for a while.
It’s volatile so you’ll need some time to explore everything the game has to offer.
You’ll be glad you did though.
This game is among the top 3 in terms of requests to play on our Casino Stream.
The game is set in the ocean realm of Neptune.
It’s a 5-reel 10-payline slot.
The base game is decent. The addition of frequent teases as Neptune Rises from the waves to thunder and lightning is a really nice touch.
Neptune can randomly grant wins or scatters.

If you play slots a lot you’ll feel a sense of familiarity with the game’s mechanic as it pays more than a passing nod to the fantastic Fairy Queen from Novomatic.
Like that game you’re unlikely to experience everything without putting some time into it. It is well worth it though.
I’ve read a couple of middling reviews on other slot sites for this one. I can only imagine they haven’t played the game enough to uncover it’s hidden depths (no pun intended).
Neptune Rising – Conclusion
This is a bit of a corker as long as you give it enough time and spins.
The guaranteed wins in the free spins make this really compelling and means you’re not going to bomb out of the bonus round feeling disappointed.
If there’s one criticism it’s that the max wins could have been higher.
All in all though a fantastic achievement for a fledgling studio and we look forward to seeing more.
If you do rebrand this it would be amazing if you could chuck in a Bonus Buy.
Give it a try (you can play it for free at the top of this review).
