Cowabunga baby! You’re going for a sunny beach adventure! Winter or summer, it’s time to grab your surf board, swimsuit, and goggles, because the Wild Water™ slot will be taking you back to far-out days of the sixties going to the seventies, when beach bums ruled the waves. Make sure you use enough sun screen while getting ready for a the best seventies party on the beach you’ve ever attended. Thanks to this summer-themed video slot it only takes a few seconds to land onto the beach, where you’ll be accompanied by a bunch of beach girls and surf dudes, including six-packs, of course.
Back in time
After Groovy Sixties™, Funky Seventies™, Super Eighties™, and Disco Spins™, you know get another chance to get back in time. I’m a bit confused, though, because this game has characteristics of the sixties, as well as from the seventies, a nice mixture though. There are hippies, surf dudes, a funky seventies sound, and for a change, you’ll be happy seeing a shark.
Meet summer, the best time of the year! A popular theme used before in Beach, originally designed by NetEnt with an all-new animated wave that washes symbols ashore, making Beach one of a kind. More summer can be found in Tiki Wonders, inspired by all the beauty of Hawaii. So you see, thanks to NetEnt it can always be summer, at any time and wherever you are, simply by playing these summer-themed video slots. The Wild Water™ slot is maybe the most typical one from this category as sun, sea and the beach is all included, as well as the sounds of waves and gulls. So grab your surfboard, summer shorts or bikini, and enjoy the high waves in Wild Water™.
With 20 bet lines, Wild Water™ can’t be called special, as no Both Way Win feature or anything like it is involved. Comparing the Wild Water™ slot to older titles in a NetEnt Casino, you’ll notice that you don’t get the chance to adjust the n of bet lines and because of that a minimum bet of 0.20 is available. A good thing if you would ask me, simply because the intention of the game can be ruined by playing with just a few bet lines. After all you do want to leave the NetEnt Casino of your choice with a positive balance. Besides that, all the other features in Wild Water™ will make up for it, I promise, and don’t worry about the betting options as there are plenty of other betting options available. What about the 10 bet levels and six different coin values, perfect to steadily increase your total bet up to a maximum of 100.00.
The Wild Water™ slot features Wild Substitutions, Free Spins, two kinds of Bonus wins, Multipliers and Stacked Surfer Symbols. In both, main game and Free Spins, surfer symbols appear as stacked symbols on the reels, which means they can take over a whole reel right away. Stacked symbols can either partially cover a reel with one or two symbols at the time, or it can cover an entire reel. Till now this type of symbol was exclusively reserved for Stacked Wild features, but now for the first time used for regular symbols too, responsible for yet another original gameplay, which can only be found in a NetEnt Casino.
For the first time you’ll be actually happy to see a shark, which appears in two different ways. One of them is the regular Wild, the second one is Stacked, just as the Surfers symbols are. Regular Wilds can appear on any reel in the main game and in Free Spins. In both it substitutes for all other symbols in Wild Water, except Scatter symbols, although in Free Spins, Wild symbols automatically expand to cover the entire reel, responsible for many additional winning combinations and with that extra winnings.
So far just a few Netent video slots are designed without a Free Spins feature, but luckily Wild Water isn’t one of them. This means three or more Scatter symbols, appearing anywhere on the reels, will activate Free Spins. Not just a bunch of Free Spins, no way dude, you can win up to 60(!) Free Spins. Cowabunga!!! I’m actually surprised by this large amount, only seen once before in Wild Turkey, simply because Wild Water is already packed with so many extra features that I wouldn’t expect a maximum amount of 60 Free Spins to be won. Of course five Scatters are necessary for it, while three of them activate 15 Free Spins and four Scatters will activate 30 Free Spins. And if not enough Free Spins is enriched with the Stacked Wild symbol as well.
Surf Team and Surf’s Up Bonus Wins
In both the main game and in Free Spins, Surf Team and Surf’s Up bonus wins are activated when any combination of all five surfer symbols or all five different surfer symbols appear on all five reels.
All surfer are separately responsible for your winnings, but just when you think this video slots is already filled to the brim with extra features, NetEnt just adds another bonus win to the game. As never seen before yet in any NetEnt video slot, you’ll be awarded when all single symbols appear together in one spin. This means that when all five Stacked symbols, of three of course, cover up the five reels, you’ll be awarded with the Surf team Bonus Win of x200 your current bet.
Surf’s Up Bonus
Although you rather see them as a team with all five surfers present, a mix of them will do as well as a x20 Multiplier will be awarded.
What can I say, the Wild Water™ slot is for everyone, offering you an energetic feature packed game where anticipation builds after every spin. Just enjoy this cheerful summer-themed video slot which can easily be found at the NetEnt Casinos, just try to catch the smell of sun screen dude, and you’ll end up on the beach in seconds, riding the waves!
