Beach by Net Entertainment offers medium to high wins, with animated symbols and a return to player percentage of 96.8. It is a 5 reel, 3 row, 20 pay line slot machine with free waves, wild symbols, and octopus wilds. Beach has a maximum jackpot of 40,000 coins. The game is filled with features to help provide a higher payout or up to 24 free spins. The animated symbols help bring entertainment to the player during the special rounds.
Game Controls Game controls are fairly standard with regards to slot machines. There is a pay table option that shows the maximum wins with and without multipliers. It also shows the bet, level, coin value, and amount of coins a player has. Players can modify the bet level, the coin value or simply choose max bet. There is an autoplay and quick spin option.
Beach Game Play Game play is fairly simple in the base game. Players need to choose the bet level and coin value they wish to play and let the game spin them to a win on any bet line up to 20. The most one can get in the base game is 5 treasure chests to pay out 2000 coins.
For special features there is the Octopus Wild, which introduces one of the cutest octopus images you may see. It can appear on column three at any time during the game as a way to help you win. If it does appear, the octopus will provide the highest possible win for you as it substitutes two symbols nearest to it. If it finds a suitable swap, the symbol leaves for the next round. However, if there is nothing suitable to swap it waits on the left side of the columns until a new wave brings in a win. All wins in this feature are doubled.
Another feature is the scatter with free waves. The scatter symbol is a message in a bottle and it needs to appear 3 or more times in the columns. When it does the cork will pop and out comes the free waves. With 3 scatter symbols a win of 8 free spins is possible. Four symbols reveals 16 free spins and five symbols yields 24 free spins.
There is another wild symbol; it is a crab attached to a board with the word “wild” written on it and a sea star stuck to one corner. This symbol can substitute all others except for the scatter and Octopus. The crab is animated to jump off the board when it shows a win.
