Wild Water Slots Review
- Betting Options
- Ease of Play
- Game Features
Ten to one you’ve heard the saying ”Surf’s Up Dude”. With Net Entertainment’s latest slots release it is indeed. Wild Water is a 5 reel, 20 payline, non-progressive video slots that offers a total jackpot payout of 400,000 coins, free spins, delectable bonus rounds, wilds and scatters. The game can be played for fun or for real cash.
When I saw the title of this slots, the first thing that came to mind is The Beach Boys. Songs like ”Surfin USA”, ”Surfer Safari” and ”Surfer Girl” started bouncing around in my head. The characters that feature across the reels are all surfers each with their own unique style and sporting that typical 60′s hippie look. The overall theme of Wild Water is further complimented by its authentic sound track. Aside from the surfers and hot babes in skimpy bikinis, additional symbols that strut their stuff across the reels are a scary looking great white (wild symbol), volleyball and surfers riding the waves.
Since it’s a typical NetEnt slots, Wild Water comes with the usual refinements such automatic spins, audio options and a detailed pay table. The betting options are quite extensive too. The slots caters to low, medium and high rollers, bets can be made from as little as $0.20 up to a whopping $50 per bet.
Without a doubt my favourite section of the game. You can land as many as 60 free spins during the initial stage of the game. When the wild expands across the entire reel it contributes to a winning spin. Suffice it to say when this happens large payouts ensue. Let’s put it this way, if lady luck smiles on you and you hit 2 or 3 expanding wilds on multiple free spins, brace yourself for a handsome payout. I like this feature because 3, 4 or 5 on the same line awards 15, 30 or even 60 coins. The moment the free spins kick in you can also benefit from shark wilds.
The stacked symbols across the reels offer more lucrative payouts. The moment all five symbols appear across the reels ”The Surf Team Bonus” and ”Surf’s Up Bonus” feature is triggered. If you trigger The Surf’s up Bonus you’ll receive up to 20 times your stake. This is where the big money’s at: The Surf Team Bonus feature. If you trigger it you can win up to 200 times your initial bet.
Wild Symbol and Special Features
I must admit our surfer friends are brave to enter the water especially if a mean looking shark is patrolling the surf zone. The Great White shark is the wild symbol. Normally this shark is to be avoided at all cost but not in this case. In a winning combination the wild symbol (shark) substitutes all the other paying icons.
In summary. Wild Water is as radical as they come. I’m sure it will appeal to players who enjoy slots with an adventurous surfing theme. The game has a lot going for it, especially if one takes its lucrative free spins, multiplier and exquisite bonus game into account. Just a pity it’s not a progressive jackpot, also, expect many dead spins. It offers 5% to the house.[addtoany]
