Sunset Beach Slots
It’s evident from the moment you start playing this game that it’s certainly not a standard slot. Instead of just one set of reels, here you’ll find four and they all play along at the same time. On these reels you’ll find three central female, bikini clad characters that spend much of their time at Sunset Beach. There is the blonde with large blue eyes who wears the green bikini, the dark haired lady with the smouldering eyes who wears the purple striped two-piece and finally there is the red head in shades who wears a bikini that matches her hair colour.
As you might imagine, the backdrop to the reels is a beach scene. Garlands of flowers lay on the sand, while the gentle tide washes up on the shore. The baking hot red sun sits behind the title of the game which is a mixture of red, yellow and purple. The four sets of reels are stacked in a two by two box shape and each has a slightly transparent background so the beach scene remains in view. The symbols have something of a cartoon feel, especially when the ladies start dancing on the reels to the accompanying disco music, giving the game a bubble-gum pop type feel.
How to Play & Real Money Versions of Sunset Beach
Obviously with 4 sets of reels in play, there are a lot more win lines to contend with. The number of lines is set at 20, although this number is for each of the four sets of reels, meaning you will be paying for 80 lines at each spin. Therefore, you’ll multiply your chosen coin size by 80 for each game. When you hit spin, all 4 reels will set off at the same time and will come to a stop one at a time, with the top left set of reels stopping first.
To land a win, you’ll need to hit three or more symbols on a win line from left to right – here you’ve got the chance of claiming different wins at each of the 4 sets of reels. The highest paying symbols on the reels are the three ladies and should you hit 5 in a row you’ll win 3,000, 1,500 and 1,000 coins respectively for the dark haired lady, the redhead and the blonde. They are joined by a cocktail, a can of drink in ice, a beach ball and the playing card symbols from Jack to Ace. Each of the playing cards is designed with a floral pattern that you might find on a Hawaiian shirt or a hula skirt.
The three ladies also double as the wild symbols in the game. On occasions, each one will appear stacked on reels 2, 3 or 4 at any of the four slots. If this stacked symbol takes up an entire reel, it will also clone itself onto the corresponding reels of the subsequent slots. For example, if this happens on the first set of reels, the stacked wild will appear on all 4 reels, while if it happens on the third set of reels, just the third and fourth set of reels will have the expanded wild.
The auto play option offers you the chance of having the game play without interruption for 10, 25, 50 or 99 spins, however many players will enjoy the final option where the slot will continue to play until the feature is landed.
A surfing lady acts as a standard scatter and pays 150 coins for the maximum 5 symbols. However, it’s the ‘free games’ symbol which is the much more exciting. If this appears on the third reel of each of the four sets of reels you’ll enter the feature. This sees you gain 15 free spins with all four reels in play, effectively giving you 60 free spins in reality. Look out for the ‘free games’ symbol again during the feature, as each one that appears will give you an added two spins.
It’s always a good thing to come across a slot that is highly original and PlayTech have certainly achieved this here. With four sets of reels in play throughout, the excitement levels remain high as you have to have four times the focus to follow the action! The cloning wilds act as a nice addition which adds spice to the game too and the free spins feature is certainly one of the more profitable rounds you’ll find online. Graphically, it’s not the best game you’ll play, but for a fun action-packed half an hour, this game might just be ideal.
