The Wild Splash
Tired of slots with complicated gameplay? Say no more! Welcome to the easy-breeze NetEnt surfing themed slot filled with the jolly and relaxed atmosphere of the 60s and the 70s. Wild Water’s gameplay is very simple and very retro. If you are fed up with zillions of lines and tricky betting options that you are going to love Wild Water. It’s as classic as any slot may get.
But the design and graphics are exclusively modern here. NetEnt employs real big-time artists. Every graphic element, starting from the background and to the smallest control knob on the panel are perfection.
Wild Water features standard five reels with basic 20 lines. The lines are fixed. Winning requires hitting a combo of identical tiles on the reels you have pre-chosen. All the combos have to start on the leftmost reel. All the regular tiles here are stacked. They occupy not one, but all three stops on one reel.
The surfer tiles feature full-size surfers with their surfboards. The Woman in a Blue Bikini with a Blue Surfboard is paid 75x for the set of five. So does the Flower Power Long-Haired Dude in Green Trunks. Five African-American Dudes in Yellow Trunks are paid 100x.
A Woman in a one-piece Orange Swimsuit with an Orange surf is paid 250x for five. And the highest-paid of all the icons is the Guy in Red Trunks with a Red Surfboard. The five-tile combo is worth 500x.
Hitting standard one of a kind type combos with stalked tiles is a hell lot of trouble. So there are two mixed combos. If you hit any five Surfers of the reel, such combo’s worth 20x. The tiles shouldn’t be all different, some may reoccur. If you hit a combo of all different surfers, this combo will be paid 200x the bet. But all the tiles in that combo have to be different.
Apart from the regular gameplay, you may also enjoy some nifty bonus perks at Wild Water. Take the highest-paid tile of the slot. It’s the Golden Surfer Girl. This tile is not stalked, it’s a regular one-stop tile, but it comes with the biggest payout of the slot: 2,000x for the five.
Another great bonus feature is the scatter. It’s a tile with a Guy surfing on top of the wave. It’s signed ‘Scatter’ just in case! This tile is a regular-size tile. If you hit five Free Spin Scatters, you will be awarded 60 free games. For the set of four, you will get 30 spins. And the minimal combo is three of a kind and is awarded with 15 free games. Also, the Scatter is а free spin activator. To trigger the bonus feature, just hit three of those anywhere on the reels.
A gameplay with stalked tiles is hard to imagine without a Wild. At Wild Water, the Wild is the icon with a Shark. It substitutes any symbol but the scatter. In case there are several combos possible with a replacement, it substitutes only the highest winning combo on the reels. When the wild appears in the main game mode, it is a regular size tile. But when it appears at the Free Spin Mode, the wilds turners stalked.
How to bet at Wild Water? The drill is standard but comes with some surprises. First, you have to choose the value of a single coin. It varies from 0.01 credits to 0.50. Afterwards comes the tricky part. Decide which level you are going to bet on.
There are 10 available. So if you bet the minimal: one coin worth 0.01 at the first level, it will be 0.20 credits total. 0.01 per line. If you bet max, 0.50 worth coins at 10th level, your total wager will be 100.00 credits. Figuring out the wins is also easy. Just multiply the payout table value for the combo by the coin value and the level your win will be right there at the end of the equation.
Have you been longing for some fun in the sun? Dream of a relaxing holiday by the water? Maybe you want to revive the younger days of your childhood or youth when life was easier and more serene?
Time without cell phones and mobile computers when you enjoyed spending time on the beach surfing with your pals rather than at home with your laptop. Those were the days! There is no coming back to them, but a little jolly walk down the memory lane wouldn’t hurt! Enjoy the journey!
