Seemingly set in tropical climes due to the huge orange sunset and silhouettes of flying gulls behind its five reels, ‘Sun Tide’, by Microgaming, is brought to you by Egypt Slots.com and is sure to bring us all a little warmth in chilly times. It is a high variance game and offers a 96.5% RTP (return to player) rate, with bets as low as £0.09p and as high as a modest £22.50, but also threatens a potential x 1111 multiplication of wager for its most successful player. Just imagine if you will, playing a traditional fruit machine at sunset, looking out towards the sea, in a bar, built on the beach of a tropical island, and that is pretty much the experience you are going to experience here.
With a very traditional five by three set up on the reels and nine paylines over its five reels, the symbols you will be looking to match in this nice, simple game are precious diamonds, traditional sevens, sparkling gold bars, bells and fruity symbols of tradition, oranges, lemons, watermelons, cherries and strawberries, just like in the good old days. However, modernizing things up a little is the wild symbol, which in this case is a gold coin with ‘S’ inscribed in its centre. This coin can substitute for all the other symbols except for the scatter which is characterised by a beautiful tropical sunset. During the base game the wild symbol can increase onto reel three to fill all the positions when there’s a winning combination to be created.
Play SunTide Bonus Features
As this is a sunny escape from the norm, but a pretty traditional online slot, bonus features are a little sparser compared to many, more technical games and when they are triggered are quite simplistic (which may not be such a bad thing for many). As well as the scatter and wild symbols that we discussed above, the only other extra you are going to get is a ‘Free Spin’ feature.
The ‘Free Spin’ feature can be triggered by achieving three or more of the sunset scatter symbols, somewhere on your reels and if you accomplish this achievement this you will receive a sunny 15 free spins. During this round the gold coin wild symbol will become a growing wild on reels two, three and four and then you can achieve even more spins as the expanding scatter can be retriggered by rolling additional scatter symbols.
Games Similar to Sun Tide.
As we have already said, ‘Sun Tide’ is, on the whole, a pretty traditional game, so you can expect that there are lots of similar, old school games being modernized into online slots out there. Games such as ‘Giant Seven’ or ‘Fruits and Sevens’ both by developers Novotech or ‘Fruit Slots’ by Microgaming also offer a nice traditional experience with a new, sparkling, modern twist.
