Ride the waves and become a slot surfing pro

With free spins, in game bonuses up to 200x and stacked symbols, this Wild Water slot is more volatile than most other NetEnt games.

This is a different kind of 5 reel, 20 paylines slot machine. Certainly different from what you might be used to if you’re a fan of the more traditional NetEnt slot machines, like Hall of Gods or Wild Turkey.

But first things first. You’ll open up these reels and find yourself travelling back in time to the laid back hippie 1960’s / 1970’s. This surfer theme is incredibly well done, with drift wood paylines bordering the reels and faded pastel colours full of happy floral designs.

Add a backing soundtrack that has that Beach Boys feel about it, and the surfer dude congratulating you on a good win, and you’ve got yourself a well thought out surfing game.

The cool stacked symbols

The second thing you might notice with the Wild Water video slot is that most of the symbols come stacked, 3 symbols high, across the five reels. And that’s each of the surfer dudes and ladies that pay out.

The only ones that don’t are the wild Shark symbol, the surfer scatter and the highest paying golden sunset surfer. Because it’s the highest paying symbol and they want you to work for your top prize.

These stacked symbols, mixed with the wilds, allow for bigger wins in the base game and can lead to something special when the free spins turn up.

Jaws makes a surprising appearance

With 3 surfer scatters you can get 15 free spins, 4 gives you 30 and 5 scatters give you the maximum of 60 free spins.

We’ve gotten 3 on many occasion, and 4 on some other rare moments, but rarely five.

Reason being that even on 15 free spins, you can get fairly lucky, especially when the shark shows up out of nowhere. So 60 free spins can accumulate some serious wins.

The reason for that is that whilst the shark wild will help your balance tick along in the base game, it’s in the Wild Water free spins that this fishy beast comes alive. Because if it appears on any winning payline then it will expand to cover the whole reel.

Add the already stacked symbols, and you’ll be amazed at some of the incredibly impressive big wins, some over 300x your bet or more. We’ve found some Mega Big Wins and seen some Super Mega Big Wins hiding in this Wild Water video slot.

You’ll have to budget for around 150 – 200 spins in order to catch the free spins round and ride that wave to get the winnings and the trophy.

Hit the right wave and you can get mega wins, scatters and free spins

Enjoy the Wild Water bonus games

Random bonuses are the second type of feature you’ll find hiding in these five reels.

There are two types. The first is the Surf’s Up Bonus that gives you 20x your bet if you cover each reel with any mix of surfer symbols.

It’s a nice touch, but we’ve blinked and missed it at times, as you can easily get that much on a good spin.

What you’re really looking for in this Wild Water slot game is the unicorn of wins, or the ‘perfect wave’ of wins to keep to the metaphor, in the Surf Team Bonus.

This pays out an incredible 200x your bet. That only happens when you are lucky enough to line up all of the 5 different surfer symbols on each reel.

It’s rare, but exciting, and certainly helps top up your balance till you hit a golden free spins round.

High variance with huge potential

With a small betting range of 0.20 to 10 in real money the Wild Water slot machine might not be as appealing to bigger gamblers looking to bet more. If you want a higher betting limit, then an IGT or WMS slots might be your best options.

That said, one of the biggest complaints that many people have is that if you’re not very patient, this game can eat your budget and give out grains of sand as wins.

So betting a little lower than usual and budgeting for a good 200 spins is not a bad idea.

Because what you have here is an impressive high volatile slot fun with a funky laid back theme. It’s a little different in style, but if you’re looking for different, then this NetEnt slot game might be for you.

Still waiting for mobile and tablet

Unfortunately if you like the idea of playing Wild Water slot on your phone or tablet, then think again. You won’t be able to find it at mobile casinos and will only be able to play via your desktop or laptop.

Which is a shame as NetEnt have many more complicated slots on their Touch platform than this one, so we don’t see why they’ve ignored Wild Water.

That said, if you are in the mood for some laid back fun, have the time to hang ten and look bodacious doing it, then Wild Water slot machine is just for you.

With huge wins possible in the base game and the free spin rounds, if you like bigger hitting video slots, then give this one a try today.
