Beach slot review – Netent

Beach is a 20-line online casino slot machine from Net Entertainment.

It has colourful graphics, a novel reel feature and an innovative Symbol Swap feature.

Here’s what Netent have to say:

In Beach™, soft waves gently bring shells, starfish, and treasure chests to
the shores. As soon as there is a medium or high win, the winning symbols
animate – something is always happening on this beach!
Beach™ is a 5-column, 3-row game with 20 bet lines (fixed), featuring Free
Waves, Wild symbol and the Octopus Wild. The Octopus Wild feature works
hard to help the player to the highest possible win by swapping symbols on
the columns.

Beach reels or waves


And, ermm, that pretty much sums it up.

This is a high paying slot (over 97%) and it looks really good so it’s going to get a lot of play.
The way that the reels come in as waves isn’t going to be to everyone’s liking (it isn’t to mine but friends love it).
The point with traditional reels is that they mimic (to an extent) the old mechanical reels, and people trust mechanics more than they trust electronics, rightly or wrongly, the like of Baddamedia slots have been experimenting with innovative reels but aside from the avalanche reels seen in slots like Crystal Forest, D&D and Gonzo’s Quest I don’t think there’ll be a long term future for this type of feature.

What does have a future is the Symbol Swap feature. In beaches a friendly octopus will pop by and rearrange your symbols into the best win possible – and he pops up all the time!

A really nice addition to netent online slots and one which we’ll hopefully see more of.
