Beach : An Unexpectedly Unique Video Slot from Net Entertainment
Judging by the title alone, some would expect this Beach video slot to be just another one of those beach-themed real money slot games. It would be best not to pass this up if one is looking for a truly unique, one-of-a-kind slot from Net Entertainment.
Beach Waves, Not Spins Bring Around Payline Combinations
Instead of the standard reel-spinning actions, Beach video slot presents spins in the form of waves rushing onto the shore. Here, marine objects are arranged in three (3) rows and five (5) columns. A Treasure Chest, a Letter in a Bottle, an Oyster Pearl, a Conch Shell, a Starfish, and a Plain Shell make up the high-paying icons that form the 20 selectable paylines. The waves rushing forth and back change the positions of the reel icons, including the usual A, K, Q, J and 10 symbols.
Octopus Wild Symbol that Swaps, Substitutes and Pays Double
Another first of its kind feature with Beach video slot is the animated Octopus Wild. The delightful creature randomly appears and executes not just substitution actions but also icon-swapping motions. The Swapping occurrence is not just for visual effects but for the purpose of creating the highest possible winning combinations, in order to generate the highest total win from a single spin.
The amazing Wild Octopus appears randomly in column three (3) only. It does swapping motions to two (2) of the nearby icons positioned in reels 2, 3 and 4. In the event that the animated Wild Octopus appears in a wave outcome without a potential payline combination, the animated symbol temporarily steps out of the Beach screen. It waits for the next wave outcome/s until the best winning payline combination comes along.
As an added treat, all payline wins created with the help of the Octopus Wild Symbol are doubled by a 2x multiplier.
Net Entertainment also added a regular Wild Logo symbol to make sure that slot players can have as many wild substitution occurrences as possible.
The Letter in A Bottle Free Waves Message
Since the Beach video slot icons are washed in and out of the shore by waves, the appearance of three or more Letter-in-a-Bottle Scatter symbols in any spot of the washed beach, activates “Free Waves.” The number of free waves awarded depend on the number of Letter-in-a-Bottle Scatter symbols that triggered the bonus round. To which three (3), four (4) or five (5) Scatters award eight (8), ten (16) or twenty-four (24) Free Waves, respectively.
The Letter-in-a-Bottle Scatter symbol, the Wild Logo, and the animated Octopus Wild symbols remain active during the rush of Free Waves. Denoting therefore that Beach slot players have great opportunities of optimizing the outcomes of the “Free Waves” event.
In case the Octopus Wild is waiting in the wing when the “Free Waves” occur, the bet-free round kicks off immediately. This means the animated Octopus Wild will continue with the icon-swapping and substitution actions during the “Free Waves” Game.
