What is this mobile slot about?

Sam is back! And this time he’s heading for some tropical weather, and hot, hot wins in this Sam on the Beach mobile slot.

If you’re a fan of Elk slots you might remember a little casino game called Electric Sam.

Here you met the king of the trolls, and his family, with all their love of neon fruits. Well loved by fans, Elk Studios decided to create a follow up with this Sam on the Beach slot machine.

Though the love of neon electric light still holds true, this time you’re deep in the Caribbean as Sam and his family go visit his uncle in paradise.

An improvement on the original slot?

In many ways, this Sam on the Beach slot game is very similar to the original Electric Sam.

Both are 243 ways to win machines, both have the same number of free spins triggered by the bell scatter, and both use the logo as a wild symbol.

So why play Sam on the Beach instead of the original? Because Elk recognised that Electric Sam was loved by players thanks to it’s cool features in the free spins and unusual theme.

They kept the theme light and fun, and the exact same features… except added two very important extras.

Sam on the Beach slot celebrates family

Specifically, Uncle Ted, who during the free spins hands out sticky multipliers – ie. unlike Sandra who only gives you a multiplier on that win, Ted gives you a multiplier which will stay for the remainder of the Sam on the Beach bonus games.

Not just that, but the real hat trick is the Beach memory re-spins, where you’ll get 4 wilds sticky on screen, and a free spin to boot. You can even re-trigger the sticky wilds and get 8 or even 12 on screen, leading to some really decent wins.

We actually had great fun playing this Sam on the Beach online slot, though it won’t make you a millionaire, it does hold wins over 2,000 times your bet, which are worth chasing.

Much like the Taco Brothers slot, this is a fun, easy playing game with the chance for a decent return. What more could you want?

In-game bonus features

Wilds: The Sam on the Beach slot logo is wild and replaces all other symbols on the reels except for the scatter bell.

Beach Memory Respin: A horizontal line with a combination of all four family members (Ted, Sam, Maggie and Sandra) triggers a re-spin, with those four symbols as wilds.

If you get the four symbols again in the re-spin, you'll get another 4 wilds and another re-spin.

Scatters and Free Spins: Get 3, 4 or 5 bell scatter symbols anywhere on the reels and you'll trigger 5, 10 or 15 free spins respectively.

Granted, 5 free spins isn't much, and if that's all you get you probably won't win that much, but the goods news is that just one bell during the bonus games will give you +1 free spins.

More importantly, a win using any of these symbols will also trigger the bonus feature of:

  • Sam: He electrified random symbols and turns them into wilds, usually 1 or 2, sometimes 3 or 4. They stay sticky through the bonus game.
  • Sandra: She gives you a multiplier of anything from 2x to 10x on any win on that spin
  • Maggie: Maggie fires her harpoon towards any low paying symbol, giving you another chance at bigger win as more symbols cascade from above to replace those she disintegrated.
  • Ted: Ted grant a multiplier of 2x to 3x, and then leaves his radio behind, so any wins that uses that 'case' will automatically get a multiplier. This multiplier stays sticky for the whole free spin rounds.

The best is when you get a combination of these characters feature in one spin.

In-Game Strategies: All Elk slot machines have built in slot strategies that automatically adjust your bet level depending on what you're trying to achieve and which slot you are playing.

For this Sam on the Beach slot game our recommendations are:

  • Bet a % of your balance: either 1%, 2%, 5%, or 10% depending on brave you are feeling. We tend to like about 2% until we get a big enough win that we can increase it to 5%.
  • Booster: A risky strategy, but one that usually pays off as you increase your bet by one level after a loss, Be careful however, this can quickly drain your budget if big wins don't come round quickly.
  • Leveller: raises your bet after 5 consecutive losses, which considering this is a fairly mid variance game, can lead to the big wins being played on a higher bet. Still, you don't go 5 spins without a win that often in this mobile slot game.
  • Jumper: this raises your bet level after a win (and resets after a loss). You best avoid this one as you don't have quick successions of wins in order to make this an effective strategy.

 


Closing thoughts

With a lighter, brighter, theme, and Uncle Ted delivering some extra special multipliers, this Sam on The Bean slot on mobile and online is an improvement on the original Elk game in everyway.

It still doesn't have the really big wins that would have made this a 5 star slot review, but if you use those helpful Elk Gaming slot strategies built-in within the game, and hope for a good family reunion re-spin, we're sure you'll fall in love with these quirky trolls.

However, if you are looking for bigger, riskier, spins and wins, we'd also heartily recommend the Poltova slot online by the same provider.
