As the title would indicate, there is a beach theme going on here! The interface is very cute and clever, with the game screen depicting a sandy beach and the reel symbols being washed onto the shore in waves rather than spinning into view.
As the title would indicate, there is a beach theme going on here! The interface is very cute and clever, with the game screen depicting a sandy beach and the reel symbols being washed onto the shore in waves rather than spinning into view. The reel symbols include Treasure Chests, Oyster Shells, Conch Shells, Starfish, Clam Shells and generic playing cards symbols from Aces down to Tens. The best paying symbol is the Treasure Chest, which is worth 2,000 credits if you spin in 5 of them in to an active pay-line. The Oyster Shell is the next best symbol and it is worth the 1,000 coins if you spin 5 of them into an active pay-line.
There are a couple of different types of Wild symbol in Beach. The Driftwood Wild symbol is a symbol that can appear anywhere on Reels 1, 2, 4 or 5. The Driftwood Wild will substitute for all other symbols except Scatter symbols.
The Octopus Wild symbol is a fairly unique (and very cute!) feature that will appear only on Reel 3 and only during the Free Spins Round. With every wave that hits the shore during the Free Spins Round, the Octopus Wild will also land upon the shore with an X2 Multiplier. Once the symbols have landed, the Octopus will look around and pick up two symbols to swap around in order to make a winning combination or a winning combination of greater value. If there aren’t any winning combinations available, the Octopus will jump to the left-hand side of the screen and wait for the next wave.
The Message in a Bottle Symbol is a Scatter that will appear anywhere on screen. When 3 or more Message in a Bottle Scatters appear simultaneously, they will trigger a Free Spins Round, or rather, a Free Waves Round. 3 Message in a Bottle Scatters will earn you 8 Free Waves, while 4 Scatters will get you 16 Free Waves and 5 Scatters will result in 24 Free Waves being awarded. The X2 Multiplier in the Free Waves Round also means that the potential jackpot pay-out in Beach is 4,000 coins.
The Return to Player (RTP) for Beach is 96.8%, which is very good value for a Video Slot. The interface is quite novel and a nice break from the norm. The graphics are excellent and the theme is very engaging and sure to keep players interested. Combined with the great value, you should find Beach a very enjoyable game to play.
