About Sunset Beach
The visuals on Sunset Beach hit that sweet spot between too much detail and just the right amount of fun, without having to overly rely on that classic casino trope. There are symbols on the reels that are representative of a long, hot summer with the standard poker icons looking like they might be carved out of a slice of Hawaiian shirt. The win animations on this game are a particularly nice touch, carrying flashes of neon brilliance onto the reels, whilst the endless out to sea horizon in the background creates a first class atmosphere.
Musically the Sunset Beach slot has more than just a little drop of funk about the proceedings. During the base-game spins there’s a hot licking guitar track that picks out the beat, giving the proceedings a good kick of pulse. This is accompanied by spangled synthesizer noises that do your win combinations justice and when you hit one of the expanding hot girl sequences in a winner, a delicious drop of bass heavy tune will accompany the action.
The base game on Sunset Beach is a little on the unusual side. It uses four sets of standard five reel slots. These work in sequence. The game in the top left hand corner stops in first then the top right, then the bottom left, before the slot in the bottom right finally gives up its reel positions. Across each slot there are twenty pay-lines, giving you a total of eighty lines across all reel sets. Here you can hit special expanding combinations as well as old school scatters that pay you out for three of a kind combos anywhere in view.
In the Sunset Beach base game if you can land a symbol stack that is entirely made of one of the hot beach babe top jackpot symbols then this will trigger an animation that covers the entire reel. This then translates to cover the corresponding reel on all subsequent reel sets and operates as an expanding wild. This is a very cool little feature that can turn any spin on Sunset Beach into an absolute winner. You can even hit multiple expanding wilds that build up to a huge winning crescendo on the last reel set.
Hit a free games symbol on reel three of all reel sets to activate the Sunset Beach free spin round. This takes you to another set of four reels where you’ll get to take your free spins with enhanced winning potential. During your fifteen free spins you can re-trigger the bonus by hitting another four scatters across all reel sets, which will add another four spins to your total.
