Beach™ Video Slots Tutorial
Beach™ is a video slot that is built up of 5 separate reels, with 3 rows, 20 bet lines and 10 different bet levels. The win lines run from left to right, and the game has 3 bonus symbols, being the Octopus Wild™, Free Wave Scatters and Wild Symbols.
How to Play the Beach Slot Game
The Octopus Wild is a special Wild symbol that can substitute all other symbols except for Free Wave Scatters and Wild symbols. The Octopus Wild™ only appears on reel 3 and is able to swap the position, except for its own position, of 2 neighboring symbols on reel 2, 3 and 4 to create the highest possible win. All wins created by the Octopus Wild™ are multiplied by 2 (2x).
In case the Octopus Wild™ can’t swap 2 symbols to make a winning combination, it keeps its position on the third reel, leaves the game screen and waits on the left side while one or several re-spin(s) of reel 1, 2, 4 and 5 follow, until he’s able to make a winning combination by swapping 2 symbols. All other winnings during the re-spins without swapping will be added to your credits normally.
Free Wave Scatters
Free Wave Scatter symbols activate the Free Wave mode. Free Waves are Free Spins which you will receive by at least 3 Free Wave Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, whether during the main game or during the Free Wave spins. For 3 Scatters you’ll receive 8 Free Wave spins, 4 Scatters will give you 16 Free Wave spins and 5 Scatters will activate 24 Free Waves. The Free Waves will always be played with the same coin value and bet level as was played in the round that activated the Free Wave mode and Free Waves you win during the Free Wave mode will be added to the Free Waves you already won.
Also during the Free Wave mode the Octopus Wild might appear to make winning combinations by swapping 2 adjacent symbols. The difference with the Octopus Wild™ feature during the main game is that in the Free Wave mode the re-spins are free, ie no Free Waves will be discounted for the re-spin.
Wild symbols are symbols that replace other symbols, except for Scatter symbols and the Octopus Wild™, to create a winning combination. The Wild symbols of the Beach™ video slot can appear on reels 1, 2, 4, and 5 and either during the normal main game as during the Free Wave mode.
Beach™ Slot Bet Limits
The Beach™ video slot is automatically played with 20 fixed win lines and you can pick from 10 different bet levels and 7 different coin values.
The bet level is the number of coins you play with on each bet line. The coin value is the amount of money one coin is worth. So, the bet level will be multiplied with the coin value to determine the bet amount per spin.
The coin values you can choose from in Beach™ are: 1 cent, 2 cents, 5 cents, 10 cents, 20 cents, 50 cents and € 1. When you multiply the coin value with the bet level you can calculate the minimum and maximum bets for the Beach™ video slot.
Minimum bet: bet level 1 = 20 coins and coin value 1 cent = 20 cents
Maximum bet: bet level 10 = 200 coins and coin value 1 euro = 200 euros
Pay Table / Win Plan
To see when you will win something or which symbols are part of a winning combination, you can view the pay table. The pay table exactly shows how many coins you win for which combinations on a win line. As mentioned earlier, a win line always runs from left to right. You can view the pay table by clicking the PAYTABLE button. This button can be found at the bottom left of the screen. Only the highest winnings on a bet line will be paid. When winnings occur on more than one win line, they will be added up.
