Wild Water Online Slot
Wild Water was presented to us by Net Entertainment, and by judging from their previous submissions we can now expect above average slot machine games to join their brag list. This 60’s based, surfer-style online slot machine game has 5 reels and 20 paylines. Most of the symbols are stacked, and there is a wild, a scatter and bonus features. This isn’t a progressive slot however with a large 400 000 coin jackpot it doesn’t really matter.
A 60’s Themed Online Slot Game
The Wild Water slot is based in the 60’s era, and to top it off has a very strong surfer presence. The background is set on the beach with crisp and clear blue waters, golden sands, palm trees and of course a commemorative VW van on the side. The reels take precedence and hold colourful 60’s style surfer icons as well as beach related symbols too. There are 2 female and 3 male surfers. The females include a surfer chick with a blue swimsuit, and the other in orange; the male surfers include a surfer in red, one in green and the other in yellow. There is also a shark symbol, a silhouette surfer symbol and a surfer riding a wave.
The sound effects are very relaxed with typical sounds of the ocean, as well as a ‘Beach Boy-ish’ sound clip that plays every time a winning combination is landed on.
How to Play Wild Water
The betting size is set at a minimum of 0.01 and goes up to a maximum of 0.50, with a maximum bet of 200 coins. When placing your bet you will see that the paylines are already set at a maximum however you will still be able to set your level at 1 to 10.
A noticeable factor in this game is that the 5 surfer symbols are stacked symbols. All this means is that the symbol displays down all 3 rows creating one big image, the up side of this is that it helps in creating winning combinations.
3 or more of the same surfer symbols will guarantee a win. For example if you end up with 3 red surfers then you’ll be paid out 15 coins, if you get 5 red surfers then you’ll be paid out a total of 500 coins. The red surfer symbol pays out the most, the orange surfer pays out the second highest, the yellow pays out the third highest, green pays out 4th highest, and the least paying surfer symbol is the blue. The silhouette surfer symbol pays out the most across the board with a maximum of 2 000 coins if you have 5 of these symbols displayed on your reels at the same time.
Wild Water Bonus Features
The wild symbol in Wild Water is the shark symbol. The shark symbol will place itself randomly on the reels on any payline to try and create a winning combination. The only symbol it can’t replace is the scatter symbol.
The scatter symbol is the surfer dude riding a wave and just below him is the word ‘scatter’ in case you needed reminding. 3, 4 and 5 scatter symbols will reward players with 15, 30 and 60 free spins respectively.
The Surf’s Up Bonus rewards you with a 20x multiplier if you land with a mix of any of the 5 surfer symbols across the reels.
The Surf Team Bonus is when all 5 of the surfer symbols are displayed on the reels; this has a x200 bet multiplier.
