Slap on your suntan lotion and prepare yourself for some sizzling payouts in Playtech’s Sunset Beach, an innovative video slot that features four sets of reels that are spun independently in each game. With each gameboard featuring five reels and 20 paylines, players’ stake is naturally multiplied by four to cover each individual set of reels, but the flipside of this is they’ll have four times as many ways to win. The slot also features a great free spins feature that is active across all four machines, while stacked wild symbols can be found on reels two, three and four to create colossal payouts.
Sun, sea and sand is the name of the game in Sunset Beach, with the slot taking place in front of a pristine beach that is being gently caressed by rolling waves. The symbols that feature on the reels include cocktails, surfers and chilled drinks, with three beach babes also appearing as stacked icons that can turn whole sections of the gameboard wild if they fill an entire column. A sunset icon on the game’s central reel triggers a free spins feature when it appears on all four gameboards, while an incredibly funky piece of background music plays throughout to really capture the beach party spirit.
The main bonus feature in Sunset Beach is a free spins mode that is activated whenever sunset bonus symbols anywhere on the central reel of all four slots simultaneously. This initially awards 15 free spins, with any subsequent sunset symbol on any machine adding two more spins to your total. Stacked beach babe symbols that appear on reels two, three and four are also capable of awarding huge payouts, especially when they cover the entire column. When this happens, the symbol stack will transform into an expanding substitute wild, immediately awarding a number of bonus payouts.
Despite featuring four individual slot machines, Sunset Beach plays just like any other Playtech title in that players can use plus and minus arrows to control their bet per line amount. With stakes ranging from £0.01 to £1.00, players’ chosen wager is then multiplied by 20 paylines and multiplied again by the four slots that are in play, meaning the total cost per spin varies from £0.80-£80.00. An autoplay button enables players to launch up to 99 consecutive spins, while turbo mode can also be switched on to provide faster gameplay.
A novel video slot idea that is incredibly well executed, Sunset Beach offers players four times the fun of any other Playtech title. Though this results in the game costing slightly more to play each spin, it also gives players far more ways to win – especially when the free spins feature is activated, as this can provide a potentially unlimited number of games across all four sets of reels.
