Summer time and the spinning is easy. Get your swimwear on and head down to the beach with this summery slot machine from Euro Games Technology. There are 5 reels, 20 paylines and a whole load of good sunshine vibes thanks to an array of hot game symbols. The top jackpot of Summer Bliss weighs in at 100,000 credits and there is some bonus action too thanks to free spins with tripled wins and extra wilds.
This slot machine presents players with a bit of feel good factor with its bright beach setting. The water is crystal blue, the sand is golden yellow and there isn't a cloud in sight. As you peruse the beach, you will find everything you need to relax – perhaps an ice-cold cocktail or a million dollar yacht? You will also come across some wildlife such as starfish and meet some beach-happy people with two icons representing female sunbathers and another showing a bleach haired surfer dude who is taking advantage of the huge waves off shore.
All of the symbols are adequately light and airy to evoke that carefree atmosphere of Summer Bliss. Plus, the game will show interesting animations whenever certain winning combinations are formed while exotic Latin style music will play to take players far away from their everyday lives.
There are two special symbols involved in this Summer Bliss slot machine by EGT. One of these is the surfer fella who acts as a wild symbol to replace other icons to make wins. He won't replace the scattering wave symbol, however. That is because this rip-curl icon doesn't need to appear on any particular payline to reward players with a 250x total bet multiplier.
If you can manage to surf three or more of these waves, then you will be awarded with 15 free spins. Ok, so free spins aren't anything new, so what's the big deal? Well, these free games come with tripled wins, plus the two female sunbather symbols will become extra wilds. So, essentially, you will have three wild symbols to help you boost your betting balance in the right direction. We believe that is what the kids nowadays would call “gnarly”.
The top jackpot of Summer Bliss is also rewarded by the surfer wild symbol, five of which on an active payline will payout a 5000x line bet multiplier. Going down in value and there is quite steep drop to the next most lucrative icons, which are the two sunbathers. Five of each will pay 1,000x the value of the bet per line. From there, the values simply half in value as you go down the payout schedule. The yacht, for example will pay out no more than 750x, the starfish and cocktail offer 500x and the A, K and Q symbols give 250x. The lowest valued icons are J, 10 and 9, all of which pay 125x for five of a kind.
With 20 paylines available, spinners will find that this slot machine hits a good balance between frequent wins and big prizes. You can, however, play with less paylines with a small range of options including: 15, 10, 5 and 1. The line bet values are also quite limited in scope with 1, 2, 5, 10 and 20 credits available to place as a wager per active payline.
Sometimes when you are hitting the surf, you have to take a risk – do you go for the big waves or stick in the shallow waters? Well, punters will be able to go big with a double-or-nothing gamble game which can be played whenever you win less than 35x the value of your total bet. Simply guess whether the face down card is red or black to double your win from the last spin or bail out and lose it all.
As with most EGT slot machines, there is also a “Jackpot Cards” game. This is randomly activated and gives spinners the chance to win one of four mystery jackpots. Simply find three matching suits from a field of 12 playing cards and you will unlock the jackpot corresponding to that suit.
This Euro Games Technology slot machine is very enjoyable to play, simply because it is filled with lots of good summertime vibes. The bonus is that this game also offers some top notch spinning action thanks to a set of free spins which will triple all wins and introduce extra wilds into the equation. So, if you're after some great gambling action, or you simply want to escape to a warmer climate for a while, then Summer Bliss might just be the slot machine for you.
