Wild Water is an absolutely gorgeous 5-reel, 20-payline game created by the amazing artistic talent at Net Entertainment. It takes you straight back to simpler days surfing along the Pacific Ocean with your friends in the retro-fabulous 1960s and 70s.
Wild Water allows you to splash back in time wherever you wish: with Linux, Windows, or Mac on a laptop or desktop computer.
One unique thing about Wild Water is that all the main symbols are stacked, meaning they're complete figures that can cover more than one spot on the reel. It also means that the entire symbol has to appear over three columns for it to be included in a win. These main symbols feature five lovely renderings of surfers in retro swimwear.
The highest value symbol is your classic sunglasses-sporting surfer dude, in red trunks with a red surfboard in his hand. The next value down is a pretty woman with dark hair in an orange swimsuit. The middle-value symbol is a cool guy in yellow standing in front of a yellow surfboard. The next-to-lowest symbol is your typical hippie guy in a mostly green setting, with hip-length black hair, a peace symbol around his neck, and a drum at his feet. Finally, the last symbol is a pretty lady in a light blue bikini, leaning against a light blue surfboard.
The highest-paying symbol of all, though, is the smaller square Golden Surfer. It can appear on any reel, in both the main game and Free Spins, and causes your winnings to add up quickly.
The background scene has the ocean on one side and a classic VW van on the other, flanked by palm trees and sand. A groovy, vintage rock-n-roll tune plays in the background of Wild Water and it's highlighted with the sound of ocean waves gently splashing against the shore.
A Jaws-like shark popping out of the sea represents the Wild symbol and it substitutes for every other symbol except the Scatter, and will substitute for the highest winning combination on the bet line. The Scatter symbol features a surfer on a golden surfboard set against a turquoise-colored wave. Three or more of these will activate Free Spins. Three gives you 15 free spins, four allows 30 free spins, and five will grant you an amazing 60 free spins. In Free Spins, the shark Wild symbol automatically expands to cover the entire reel.
A couple of bonuses are built into the game's design. The Surf's Up Bonus occurs when any mix of surfers fully cover the reels. Then the game will pay you a generous x20 bet multiplier, however, the entire figure must be visible on the screen. In the same manner, land on one of each figure at the same time-the entire surf team at once-and you will have achieved the Surf Team Bonus, which pays out an impressive x200 multiplier of your bet.
Wild Water provides 10 bet levels coupled with 20 fixed bet lines and coin values that range from .01 to .50. The minimum bet you can make is .20, while the maximum bet is 100.00. Wild Water is also a good high paying slot machine as you can also win a big coin jackpot made up of 400,000 coins.
This game is one of the simpler slots, but it's very visually pleasing and the soundtrack is fun to listen to. Basic, easy-to-navigate buttons click smoothly and the display windows clearly keep you on top of all your vital statistics whichs helps your playing strategy: current bet, bet level, coin value and the number of coins you have left to play. A sliding volume control lets you turn the sounds off or on, and Advanced Autoplay settings are easily applied to control the game.
Wild Water flows with retro fun on your laptop or other computer that's set up with a Windows, Mac, or Linux operating system.
