Playtech created the Sunset Beach video slot machine just in time for the summer of 2014. This game features a sandy beach background, with five reels, 20 paylines, and the opportunity for players to play four slot machines simultaneously to ensure four times the fun, and four times the paylines. The game is played on four different reel sets simultaneously. The theme is simple and beach-based with girls in bikinis providing the primary entertainment.
Playtech have sensibly kept the game simple, which is essential in a situation with four different 20 payline reel sets on the screen. Each machine has Stacked Wild symbols and, naturally, given the theme, these are the women in bikinis. These symbols appear on the middle three reels, and, if they appear in all three positions, they become an expanding wild and clone across and down to the next machines. Therefore, an expanding wild appearing on the top right reel set will also clone on to the two bottom machines but an expanding wild on the bottom left reel set will only clone to the bottom right reel set.
Stacked Wild and Scatter Symbols
The blonde, brunette and redhead girls, clad in bikinis, act as Stacked Wild symbols on the Sunset Beach slots game. These symbols expand to cover an entire reel before they are cloned from the machine and appear on to the same reel on next machines. Wild symbols only occur on reels 2, 3 and 4, substituting for all non-feature icons.
The redhead girl on a surfboard is the Scatter symbol. The Scatter symbol does not unlock a bonus game or free spins round. Its purpose is rather to award an instant prize payout equal to 10x, 50x and 150x the total bet for three, four and five of these icons scattered in any position on the game screen.
Free Spins Bonus Round
Sunset Beach video slot does have a Free Spins round. A Free Games symbol appearing anywhere on reel 3 on all four machines triggers the Free Spins round. A total of 15 free games are then played simultaneously on all four machines, with each Free Games icon occurring anywhere on any machine during the feature winning additional 2 free games on all four machines. This feature can continue indefinitely, and is hence the objective and most profitable feature of Sunset Beach..
Sunset Beach Game Details
The game itself is one of reasonably low volatility, and many cloned, stacked Wild symbols can actually occur without any resultant winnings being achieved on any of the four reel sets. Nevertheless, while the Stacked Wild symbols are only on reels 2, 3 and 4, a Wild brunette on Reels 1 to 5 will pay you 3000 coins. Accompany this achievement with the Expanding Wild symbols on Reels 2 to 4 and the payout then becomes significant.
With respect to the coins values in Sunset Beach video slots, the range is from 0.01 to 25 per payline. Due to this game consisting of four top rated slots machines effectively, all four reel sets must be played, or activated. Similarly, all available paylines must be played.
