Beach Life Slots

Published: 11/07/2012

There are plenty of reasons to love the beach, and Playtech’s Beach Life slots provide even more. Offering the software developer’s very highest progressive jackpot, this game’s endless outing of surf and sand turns every player into a sun worshipper, hoping to see the one brilliant combination that can result in instant riches.

The very first thing one notices about the Beach Life slot is how colourful it is compared to most of Playtech’s innovations. Heavy use of bright reds, blues and yellows sets a festive atmosphere, well suited to the fun ahead. The game uses the common five-reel, 20 payline format, but even the payline identifiers are rendered as colourful bits of candy and toggles are represented by shiny pieces of quartz like those that might be found beach-combing.

Winning combinations are formed by matching three or more Ice Cream treats, of which there are five varieties: Rainbow Pops, Single Scoops, Fudgesicles, Soft Creams and Ice Cream Sandwiches—all garnished with fruit, mint, wafers and the like. Higher awards are given for lining up two or more Surfers, Divers and Sunbathers on an active payline. The payouts range from 1X to 500X for wins with these symbols.

San Castles are the scatter bonus symbol for Beach Life slots. They pay 2X, 5X, 50X or 200X, respectively, whenever 2, 3, 4 or 5 of them appear anywhere on the reels. Payouts are multiplied times the entire bet and added to any line wins. There are also Sunken Treasure symbols that trigger a Bonus round when three or more appear on any active payline. Regular slot play is halted and an underwater scene appears with colourful coral surrounding a dozen Sunken Treasures. The player chooses three to reveal rewards.

The most important symbol on the reels is the Blazing Sun. It is wild and substitutes for any symbol except the Scattered Sand Castles and Sunken Treasure bonus symbols. Lining up 2, 3, 4 or 5 Blazing Suns on an active payline pays multipliers of 10X, 200X, 2,000X or 100,000X times the line bet. If all five of the wild symbols show up on the twentieth payline, the progressive jackpot is awarded.

The credit denomination for Beach Life slots is fixed at $0.50. Select up to 20 paylines and wager one credit per line for a maximum bet of 20 credits or $10 (Bet Max). Start the game by clicking on “Spin.” Winnings are displayed in the “Win” section below the fifth reel, and the Current Balance appears in the lower left-hand corner of the screen. The game has an Autoplay feature, which can be accessed via the menu tab to enable repeat bets.

Slot games are often described in terms of volatility. This is a function of the frequency and the amount of the payouts. In this regard, Beach Life slots are considered to be highly volatile. They do not pay out often, but the amounts awarded can be truly life changing. The progressive jackpot starts at just $50,000, but because it occurs so infrequently, the amount keeps growing daily.

In fact, the average jackpot win on the Beach Life slot to date has bee $2.7 million and the largest payout was $4,800,298. When the Blazing Suns line up on any other payline than the twentieth one, the reward is still quite satisfying--$50,000. That’s not bad at all for spending a little time by the sea.
