Baywatch Online Slots Game By Playtech
For those of us who are old enough to remember, during the early 1990’s there was a TV series called Baywatch. Baywatch involved a lot of scantily clad people running around the beaches of Las Angeles rescuing drowning swimmers. The original cast included people such as Pamela Anderson, Yasmin Bleeth and David Hasslehof. Baywatch the slot is all about this original cast TV series featuring appearances from some of the well known actors and actresses.
Baywatch has five reels and thirty paylines. Each line can be activated or not, depending on your choice. The lowest wager amount allowed per line is 0.01 coins, and goes all the way up to 25 coins per line. Baywatch is a game for players of all budgets as it falls into the penny slot category.
Baywatch was a 90’s series, and the slot reflects this in its basic style of graphics. All of the graphics are 2D and look very similar to some old school slot machines still found in brick and mortar casinos. To the left of the reels stands Pamela Anderson in her trademark red bathing suit, with only her hair being animated. This does give a kind of creepy look as if she has frozen and is staring at you. The reels of course are set on a sunny beach, with ambient bird and water sounds in the background.
Lucrative Life Savers
The symbols in Baywatch the slot are of course taken from the series. Not all of the icons found on the reel really do fit in however. The very base symbols are taken from a deck of cards, but have been done to look like surfing logos. The rest of the pay table is made up of Baywatch characters such as CJ, Matt Brody and Neely Capshaw. Below them on the pay scale are various life preservers and some drowning people.
The life guard tower is the games scatter symbol which will launch one of the bonus rounds. CJ or Pamela Anderson is the games wild as well as being the highest paying symbol.
The life guard tower can be found on all of the reels, and will grant you a number of free spins if you manage to find three or more of it. During this round you may find extra wilds, or a number of bonus features launched by finding three life guards of the same type on reel three.
The Caroline Holden bonus grants you six added spins with all prized accumulating a three times multiplier. Matt Brody will get you six extra spins and some extra wilds. Neely Capshaw holds six extra spins with an initial 2x multiplier that increases every time she shows up.
This is a separate symbol that appears only on reel five. When it does a mini game is launched where you get to choose one of two bonuses. The CJ feature gives you extra respins with sticky wilds, or you can choose a Pick me feature where you have to match three symbols to win a prize.
