Symbols and multipliers
The Beach slot features both regular and bonus symbols. The former ones produce combinations and the latter ones possess some special capabilities.
Regular symbols of the slot:
- A treasure chest is the symbol that earns you the highest payouts. For a combo of 3, 4 or 5 chests you will earn the multipliers of 40, 200 or 2,000 respectively
- A shell with a pearl pays 25, 125 and 1,000 for a combo of 3, 4 and 5 symbols
- A purple shell — 25, 100 and 750
- A starfish — 20, 75 and 500
- A white closed shell — 20, 60 and 350
The lowest-paying ones are the gemstones with denominations of playing cards:
- "A" pays 5, 40 and 125 for 3, 4 and 5 symbols respectively
- "K" — 5, 25 and 100
- “Q” — 5, 25 and 75
- "J" — 5, 20 and 50
Your winnings are calculated by multiplying the combo's factor by your bet per line.
- The Wild symbols depicted by a crab on a board lands on the first, second and fourth reels. The Wild does not create any combinations of its own. Yet it can substitute for other pictures in successful combinations, except for the bonus ones
- The Wild depicted by an octopus, lands on the third reel only. This symbol competes winning combos as well. This is when your winnings for successful combos will double. The octopus also transposes the pictures landed next to it on the second, third and fourth reels. This is the way a combination is formed on a payline
- The Scatter — is a bottle with a letter in it, which triggers up to 24 free spins. To launch a series of free spins, you need to land 3, 4 or 5 of these symbols in any positions on the reels
If 3, 4 or 5 Scatters represented by a bottle with a letter land anywhere on the reels, you will earn 8, 16 or 25 free spins respectively. In this round no credits or coins will be deducted from your balance, and the winnings will be added in accordance with the bets that were placed prior to launching the round. The round also features an opportunity to extend the series of free spins. You will need to land three symbols with the bottle with a letter again.
The Beach slot can tempt you with its two unique Wild symbols, one of which has the multiplier of x2 and is capable of transposing the adjacent pictures. The slot also features an extra round of free spins.
