Appearance and Sound Effects
SunTide is designed like a traditional slot game with five reels and three rows. The game is bright and colourful with bold colours making it stand out from the crowd. The game is set against a warm sunset on a tropical island with a large sun glowing behind the reels and birds silhouetted by its light. Below the reels, there is the box where the stake and balance will be shown as you spin. On the reels, are the symbols you may associate with a retro style fruit machine. These include sevens, diamonds, bells, gold bars, oranges, cherries, watermelons, lemons, and strawberries. There is also the Gold Coin wild symbol and the tropical sunset scatter.
On SunTide there is not a large number of special bonus features, however, there are few little special touches. Firstly, there is a wild symbol. This is the symbol with the Gold Coin with the letter "S" on it. This symbol only appears on reel three, however, it has a very special purpose as you spin. The wild gold coin symbol can substitute for most other symbols on the reels to help create winning combinations. The wild gold coin is also an expanding wild. What this means is that when it can help complete a combination, it will grow to fill the entire third reel.
The main bonus feature on SunTide is the free spins bonus. This is the most common bonus feature you see on Microgaming slots, and it is triggered when three, four or five of the scatter Tropical Sunset symbols land in a single spin. For triggering the bonus, SunTide will award fifteen free spins. During the free spins, the Wild Gold Coin symbol will appear on reels two, three and four and is an expanding wild on each, massively increasing the chances of creating a wild enhanced combination. The free spins also can be re-triggered by landing three more of the Scatter Tropical Sunset symbols.
Playing on Mobile Devices:
SunTide can be played on desktop, mobile or tablet devices.
For players who like the feel and style of older more retro slot games, then Suntide will be a perfect choice. There is not a lot in the way of bonuses, however, the free spins can be a potentially very rewarding bonus feature.
