Beach is a slot by Netent and the title of the game probably already gives away the theme and setting. Beach doesn’t have reels and rows, as the symbols wash ashore. When it really gets exciting, the symbols don’t wash up with one single wave but are brought to land with multiple waves. The maximum potential win stands at 40,000 coins and, in total, there are 20 pay lines, making it an interesting slot. The wild, the special feature and free waves all make this game even more interesting.
How to play Beach?
Beach is in no respect a simple slot. It has no reels, the symbols wash ashore and the beach functions as the playing grid on which wins need to form. It uses quite some standard symbols which range from the ten to the Ace. The animations all have to do with the theme and include shellfish, oysters, starfish, driftwood, treasure chests and more. The driftwood on the first, second, fourth, and fifth reel is the wild. This wild symbol can substitute for any other symbols except the scatter. The animation for the scatter is the letter in a bottle. The scatter can take you to free spins. If an octopus seated upon driftwood lands on the third reel, a special feature will be activated.
Bonus game and special feature on Beach
When three bottles wash ashore, you receive eight free waves. If you have four bottles, you get 16, and for five bottles, you get 24 free waves. Calling it free waves instead of free spins is both fun ánd accurate. During free waves, you can also win additional free waves. This allows you to continue playing for free even longer!
The special feature on Beach has everything to do with the wild symbol that can only land on the middle reel. This wild symbol is a piece of driftwood with an octopus sitting on top of it. Not only is this wild symbol capable of finishing wins, it can even choose to have two animations switch places in order to form a win. Unfortunately, this feature won’t come around very often. However, if it does become active, you will be very happy it did.
Pay lines and possibilities on Beach
The default number of active pay lines on Beach is the total number of pay lines: 20. However, you can play with fewer active pay lines. Another way of altering your total wager is by altering the coin value and the number of coins per active pay line. Beach also has an autospin function which you can configure in such a way that it turns itself off automatically once you reach free waves.
Besides the maximum potential win of 40,000 coins, Beach does not have a direct jackpot. Unfortunately, you cannot significantly bump up your wins, except for with the special feature on the third reel. On the other hand, you might not really need to bump up your wins that much. The sounds of the ocean, the entertaining animations, and the fun layout will already bring so much joy that monetary gain is only of secondary importance.
