While the Wild Water™ video slot was launched in March 2014, it took a while before mobile players could enjoy this retro-styled slot game as well. In the month that NetEnt could have been celebrating the third birthday of the Wild Water™ video slot, the mobile version arrived at the mobile casinos, taking players back to far-out days of the 60’s and 70’s when beach bums ruled the waves.
Looking for a sunny beach adventure on the reels, Wild Water Touch® certainly allows you to soak up some sun. This sunny beach adventure brings you everything the desktop game has been doing for three years already including a Return to Player of 96.4% with bets being as low as 0.20 and as high as 100.00 per spin. The long-forgotten Cowabunga! expression, originally from the 1940’s, makes a comeback in Wild Water Touch® and so does the hippie culture known from the 60’s. This mobile slot takes you to a sandy beach, accented with palm trees and an old hippie van, creating a relaxed atmosphere to spin the reels.
A Beach Boys kind of soundtrack adds an upbeat feeling to Wild Water Touch® while a narrated voice screams out surfer’s slang. It’s time to grab your surfboard and bathing suit, ready for a ride back to far-out days of the sixties. Playing Wild Water Touch® you’ll experience a retro-styled game in which NetEnt didn’t hesitate to show off with some innovative slot features.
Wild Water Touch® features
If you think Stacked Wilds are Awesome, I’m sure you’ll enjoy Wild Water Touch®. This mobile video slot features a lot of them with all beach dudes and dudettes having their own Stacked symbol. Among the hippies, you’ll also find Wild Substitutions and Scatters. Excellent as these type of symbols will be responsible for extra winnings. Wilds will be able to replace other symbols while the Scatter is responsible for the activation of the Free Spins feature. This could be it, but NetEnt always knows how to add that little extra to a game that makes it even more Awesome! In this case, I’m talking about the Surf’s Up Bonus and Surf Team Bonus.
In both, main game and the Free Spins feature, surfer symbols appear as Stacked symbols on the reels. These Stacked symbols can either partially cover a reel with one or two symbols at the time, or it can take over an entire reel right away. Until the launch of the Wild Water™ video slot, this type of symbol was exclusively reserved for Stacked Wild features, which changed with the launch of this beach-themed video slot.
There’s some weird Sharky business going on in Wild Water Touch®. Usually very unattractive to meet while in the sea, you’ll be pleased to meet as many sharks as possible. In the role of the attractive Wild symbol, it will appear in two different ways. As a regular Wild and as a Stacked Wild. Both will substitute for all other symbols in Wild Water Touch®, except Scatter symbols, although in Free Spins, Wild symbols automatically expand to cover the entire reel.
As attractive as usual, the Free Spins feature is one of the highlights in this summer-themed NetEnt slot, already activated with three or more Scatter symbols. Not just a few Free Spins, no way dude, you can win up to 60(!) Free Spins. Cowabunga!!! Even I am impressed by this number which doesn’t occur often in an online slot. You’ll need all five Scatters to activate all 60 of them, but if you manage, waves of wealth will be the result.
Surf Team and Surf’s Up Bonus Wins
Stacked symbols, two Wild types, and up to 60 free spins available during Free Spins, I would believe that there’s no space left for any more beach fun on the reels, but I’m wrong. NetEnt found a way to include the Surf Team and Surf’s Up bonus wins as well, activated when any combination of all five surfer symbols or all five different surfer symbols appear on all five reels. The Surf Team bonus win pays when all 5 different stacked surfer symbols appear, covering all of the reels. The Surf Team bonus pays a massive bet multiplier of x200! The Surf’s Up bonus win pays when any combination of 5 surfer symbols cover all the reels. The Surf’s Up bonus pays a bet multiplier of x20.
