Sam on the Beach Slot Review
Remember Electric Sam from his Troll Forest Casino? Well, he and his family are back, and this time they’re holidaying in the Caribbean in this slot game called Sam On The Beach! For those of you who don’t know who Electric Sam is, we would recommend you give Elk Studio’s Electric Sam slot machine a try – and then you will understand why we are so excited about his next adventure in this game!
So, welcome to the Caribbean with Sam, Sandra, Maggie and Uncle Ted (Sam’s older brother)! Be prepared for some high octane action with the potential for massive wins in Sam On The Beach.
But before you join them, it would be best to find more about this game so you can maximise your chances of winning!
Gameplay for Sam On The Beach is very straightforward: you set your bet and click on spin. Of course, betting in Elk Studio’s games is very different from traditional slot machines. You need to choose one of the four betting strategies:
- Traditional Betting: You can stick to the regular betting style of choosing the amount you wish to bet on your spin.
- Jumper:When you land winning combinations, the bet amount will increase by 2x – up to 4 levels. If you lose, the bets are all reset to the original value.
- Leveller: Your bet level will go up by 2 if you lose 5 spins in a row. This can happen twice to reach a maximum of 10x your original bet. When you land a win, the levels are reset.
- Booster:Your bet level goes up by 1 after every loss – up to 4 levels (10x your bet amount). And then when you land a win, the bet is reset.
It is also wise to remember that this game has an RTP of 96.30% and its volatility is on the higher side. So, you will go through periods where you with nothing or very little. And then there will be a burst of wins! So, we would suggest that you keep your bets small so that you can spin a larger number of rounds until you get those bigger wins.
Once you have selected your betting mode, you simply click on Spin to begin your adventure with Sam and his family!
To win at this 5-reel game, you need to land at least 3 of the same symbols in a payline. The good part is that this game gives you a massive 243 different ways to make a winning combination, which really increases your chances of activating the bonus features and landing bigger wins.
However, the amount you win will depend on the type of symbols you land in a winning combination. The low-value symbols (the neon crab, seahorse and sea star) will give you lower wins – even if you land all 5 of them on the reels. It’s the higher-value symbols (Electric Sam, older brother Ted, his wife Sandra and his daughter Maggie) that will give you the big wins in the base game. Of course, the biggest wins will come from the bonus features.
Additional Game Features
The additional game features are what will get you that massive 2,275x win! So, let’s find out more about them.
Beach Memories Re-Spin
If you get lucky and all 4 family members land on a single payline, you will trigger the Beach Memories Re-Spin feature. If this happens, you win a re-spin and all the 4 characters turn into Sticky Wilds and remain on the reelscape. You can stack this feature up to 3 times, leading to the possibility of significant wins!
Free Spins Bonus Feature
This is the big reason why you should play this game. If you land Scatters, which is Uncle Ted’s Bell symbol (from his treasure ship!), then you trigger this feature. 3 Bells give you 5 Free Spins, 4 give you 10 Free Spins and 5 Scatters on the reels give you 15 Free Spins!
If the Bell appears when the Free Spins feature is active, then you win even more free spins!
When the Free Spins feature is active, you get Electric Treats:
- Electric Sam Sticky Wild: If Sam lands on your reels, he turns into a Sticky Wild!
- Uncle Ted Sticky Multiplier: If Uncle Ted lands on the reels, he will reward you with 2x or even 3x multipliers on your wins.
- Sandra Bonus Multiplier: If Sandra lands on the reels, multipliers are increased to as much as 10x!
- Maggie Imploding Symbols: And if Maggie lands on the reels, she will clear out all the low-value symbols on the reels, and more symbols will cascade down!
Sam On The Beach’s game design is exactly what we have come to expect of Elk Studios – outstanding! The background is a sandy beach with blue skies and palm trees flanking the reelscape. The reels are transparent and you can clearly see the background through them. The low-value symbols are neon shapes, while the high-value symbols are pictures of Sam the Troll and his family.
The high definition graphics are seriously fantastic! And the soft Caribbean music that plays in the background adds to the holiday atmosphere of the game. The animations in this game are entrancing! You could stay glued to this game just for its graphics, music and animations!
