You know how sometimes you find yourself craving a seriously simple and old-fashioned slot? Something that’s not all about complicated features and add-ons, but still has real entertainment value? So do we, which is why we know it’s often pretty hard to find. But that was exactly the purpose of SunTide – Microgaming’s take on the simple yet effective. And we’re happy to say that as far as we’re concerned, they’ve done a good job ticking both boxes.
As with the fruit machines of old, it’s a tale of lemons, bells, melons, diamonds, bar symbols and so on. It’s a stripped-back five-reel slot with 9 playable paylines and everything is presented boldly, brightly and beautifully. Things are spiced up a little with scatters, which takes it out of dull-and-boring territory and into the big leagues. You can choose any number of paylines, coin values range from 0.01 to 2.50 and when you’re ready to hit the beach, you know what to do!
Payout & bonus rounds
You’ll probably want to cross your fingers for as many of those lucky diamond symbols as possible – five in a row and you’re in for a glorious jackpot of 1,000X your wager. Right at the bottom end of the pay table comes the usual cherry symbol, which will net you 3X your bet if you land three in a row.
Wilds take the form of the golden coin and are good for taking the place of any symbol in the game, with the exception of the scatter. Wild symbols hit during normal play will sometimes appear on the middle reel and expand to cover the whole thing. This can also happen across reels two and four during free spins.
As for the scatter symbol, it’s that gorgeous sunset you’ll be on the lookout for and you’ll only need to see two of them in any positions at all to win a prize. Free spins to the tune of 15 are awarded for three or more scatters and can also be re-triggered during free play.
All in all, SunTide is a bit like the classic English summer. It comes out of nowhere to deliver the goods, though runs out of steam far before its time. With SunTide, it has that kind of immediate playability that’s simply outstanding – a few spins in and you’re hooked. But at the same time, it doesn’t have the kind of depth required to have you coming back for more on a regular basis. That being said, for casual gamers and those just getting started with online slots, it offers the perfect balance of simplicity and playability.
