Wild Water Online Slot Information
Wild Water is a groovy 60’s-themed online slot game from Net Entertainment. The game is set in an island beach paradise during the Swinging 60’s, and features a number of surfer characters dressed for the era that appear stacked on the reels.
The bonus features in Wild Water include scatter and wild symbols, stacked symbols, expanding and stacked wild symbols, a Surf’s Up bonus multiplier and a Surf Team bonus multiplier, as well as a free spins feature that offers up to 60 free spins. Wild Water also offers a progressive jackpot of up to 400,000 coins.
Graphics and Themes
The game is based on a relaxed tropical beach scene, complete with a clear blue sky, a deep azure sea, palm trees and a retro red VW camper van to add a touch of authenticity to the theme. On the reels are a number of male and female surfers, who are separated by different coloured beach outfits in styles that were trendy during the 60’s. There is even a long-haired hippy surfer donning a peace sign pendant and a headband featured for added effect.
The reels and pay lines are framed by pieces of driftwood and are reminiscent of an island beach scene, and the pay table has been kept simple and bright to add to this fun atmosphere, as does the addition of an energetic 60’s surfing soundtrack.
The reel symbols of Wild Water consist of 5 stacked surfers and a single basic symbol, the silhouette of a woman surfing a wave against the setting sun, which does not appear stacked. Also featured are a shark wild symbol and a surfer scatter. The stacked surfers appear across a full reel, and include red, orange, yellow green and blue dressed characters, each standing next to a radio, picnic basket, volleyball, bongo drum or a beach bag, respectively.
The wild shark symbol serves as Wild Water’s wild symbol. This symbol will expand to fill the whole reel when landed, helping to create extra winning combinations by substituting all other game symbols. The only symbol that the wild does not substitute is the surfer scatter symbol.
Scatter Symbol and Free Spins Feature
The surfer symbol is the game’s scatter symbol. 3 or more of these symbols landing anywhere on the Wild Water reels will trigger the free spins bonus feature.
Once the free spins feature has been activated, players will be awarded between 15 to 60 free spins, depending on how many scatter symbols activated the feature. Additionally, the wild shark symbol will become a stacked wild during the feature, helping to create further wins.
Surf’s Up Bonus Feature
The Surf’s Up bonus feature is triggered when any combination of the 5 stacked surfer symbols appears on each of the Wild Water reels. These symbols must be stacked and must cover the entire reel on which they appear, and when this occurs, players will be awarded a multiplier of 20x their bets.
Surf Team Bonus Feature
The Surf Team bonus will be activated when each of the 5 stacked surfer symbols appears on the reels. Again, these stacked symbols must cover the entire reel to award players a win multiplier of 200x their stakes.
