Basic Graphics

The graphics in Wild Water are not 3D or high definition. Instead they have been done to look like a drawing from an old book. Very well illustrated, despite not being modern, they fit with the retro 1960’s surfing theme very well. All the characters look like they are taken straight from a young boys book on surfing. Behind the reels is a pretty scene of the ocean and a 1960’s VW Bus surrounded by palm trees and golden sand. The sound track to Wild Water is a pretty typical 60’s Rock n Roll track, with the sound of ocean waves overlapping everything.

Surfs Up Theme

As mentioned the theme of this retro slot is one of surfing, but in the 1960’s. All the symbols represent this, and there are no base deck of cards here. All the main symbols in Wild Water are stacked, which means that they take up more than one space on more than one reel. The down side to this is that you have to get the entire symbol over three columns for it to make a part of a winning combination. The highest paying symbol is the classic surfer dude with red swimwear and a long board. Next in line is a lady surfer with orange swimwear. The three lowest symbols are a cool looking guy with a yellow board, a hippie guy with a green background and a drum at his feet and a pretty lady in a blue bikini respectively.

Surfing Special Features

Wild Water has a few special features, including a Jaws looking shark that is the games wild symbol. He pops up out of the sea and replaces all other symbols except the scatter. The games scatter is a golden surfer on a board against a sea blue background. This symbol activated your free spins, the amount of spins being awarded depending on the amount of scatters found on the reels. During the free spins round the Shark wild will automatically expand to cover an entire reel.

Wild Water also has a bonus feature when you find any mix of the surfer’s covering all the reels. If this happens you are awarded a 20x multiplier that is applied to your initial bet. This only happens if all of the surfers in their entirety cover all of the reels. The Surf team feature is triggered when you land one of each figure at the same time, representing the entire team, and you will receive a 200x multiplier of your bet.
