Beach is a 5-reel, 3-row, 20-payline slot game that comes to us from Net Entertainment and oddly enough, provides a relaxing way to enjoy an afternoon playing on the “beach”. NetEnt outdid themselves this time with a very innovative animation of an ocean wave. Players virtually sit in the sun with toes buried in the sand, wishing for an Octopus Wild to pop up on the shoreline allowing you to switch out two symbols to get a huge win! This game can be played on your Mac, Linux, Windows, and Android or iOS platforms, whatever works for you!
The graphics on Beach is unique to this slots game because with every spin an ocean wave rolls down planting the symbols right into the sand, just like a swath of seashells washing up, with the soundtrack of waves rolling in. At times all symbols seem to drift gently down together; and at other times the symbols just roll into shore, one at a time between waves, just like the timing in the sizes of waves in real life. The symbols include a variety of colourful seashells, shiny stones, an open oyster showing a pearl inside, and a starfish. The playlines are depicted as lines carved into the sand.
The sounds in the background are mesmerizing, taking you right out to sea on the rolling waves with the occasional peeps and squawks of the sea birds. When you get a big win you’ll hear a the cheerful music of steel drums, carrying through with the tropical beach theme.
The return to player of Beach is 96.8%, which is nearly (but not quite) good enough for our top 15 list of best paying online slots.
Bonus features of the Beach Slot
This game has two Wilds: one is some Driftwood that has “Wild” carved into it with a tiny pink crab perched on top. This Driftwood Wild substitutes for all other symbols, to finish a payline. The other Wild is an Octopus and he’s the main player at the Beach who helps you get the biggest wins by replacing two symbols on the reels. The Octopus only pops up on the 3rd reel, but it also can replace other symbols to finish a payline. Any wins you get using the Octopus Wild comes with a nice 2X multiplier.
The Scatter is a Message inside a bottle and if 3 or more pop up anyplace on the reels you win: 3 Scatters wins you 8 Free Waves, 4 Scatters wins you 16 Free Waves, and if you get really lucky and 5 Scatters pop up you win 24 Free Waves.
Freebie Slots review of Beach by NetEnt
Beach is quite an enjoyable slot from Netent with some unique features. The free spins bonus feature can be both exciting an lucrative and the Octupus Wild feature is very original, in true Netent style. There is a non-progressive jackpot, symbolized by a Treasure Chest, which pays 2,000 coins just on the first wagering level. But it will pay out 20,000 coins when 10 coins are wagered per line. When you match this up with the Octopus Wild, which automatically comes with a 2X multiplier, you can win as much as 40,000 coins. All in all this is a fun game for anyone wanting to spend a relaxing afternoon on the beach in the sun with a chance at a very good wins and a minimal risk of getting sunburnt.
