Beach is a fun little animated slot with a very light hearted feel. The game does not have any complicated bonus features, only the basic wilds and free spins. The five reels have the usual amount of symbols and can be played for as little as 0.01. Ten bet levels allow you to choose how much you wish to spend on the twenty optional paylines, ending with a maximum wager of 200 coins per spin. Beach is a simple slot, best aimed at beginners to the slot world and players who wish to while away a relaxing afternoon.
Free Waves are basically free spins, but because this slot does not spin per say, they are called waves instead of spins. These are triggered by finding three or more message in a bottle icons anywhere on the reels. The amount of free waves or free spins is directly related to the amount of scatters that you find. The more scatters the more free waves. This can go up to twenty four free waves for finding five message in a bottle scatters.
Sea Creature Symbols
All of the symbols in the game are theme based, even the lower ones that come from a deck of playing cards. These have been done to look like sea worn pebbles. From there we have a sea shell, a starfish, a conch shell, a clam with a pearl and a treasure chest. The treasure chest is the highest paying symbol in the game and will award the standing jackpot for five of them in a row.
Beach has two wild symbols. The first is sign that says Wild on it with a very familiar crab. The crab looks suspiciously like he should have a flame haired mermaid friend with a green tail. This wild behaves normally and replaces all other base symbols in the game to create more winning combinations similar to when playing for bingo for money.
The second wild is a pink octopus. He can only be found on reel three and will run happily onto your reels, swopping symbols around his immediate vicinity to create more winning combinations. He also comes with a 2x multiplier for any wins that he helps to create.
Happy Creatures Graphics
Beach is very obviously a cartoon style slot. All of the graphics are happy and full of bright colours. The creatures that populate the reels all have big eyes and happy smiles. The reels look a bit different to what you may be used to as they do not have any borders to them. All of the symbols are set just in the surf line of a beach with the waves washing over them. The reels do not in fact spin, but the actual waves bring in the new symbols from above, as real waves would bring in flotsam and jetsam.
Beach works very well on a mobile device as its smooth animations do not have too many details in them to make playing them on a smaller screen a pain.
