Bask in the glow of a sunny afternoon, as Microgaming goes back to basics with this SunTide mobile slot.
What does the sun have to do with melons, strawberries, bells and bars? Nothing more than with another famous 9 payline Microgaming slot Summertime.
There is simply something about classic fruity symbols that make this casino software think of sunny orange clad days – and overall, it works.
Fruit machines don’t need specific themes, but if they are going to have one, why not something that immediately brings about a happy feeling?
Any game that has seven’s, bells and bars, usually tends to keep things simple. The SunTide slot is no different, basically what you really want are a couple of really good five of a kind symbol wins.
The way to get there during the base game is with the wild symbol, which shows up on all five reels, but expands on reel 3, much like you’d find in the Crazy Cow slot.
But things get very interesting during the slots’ free spins, because the wild now expands on reel 2, 3 and 4 – leading to bigger chances for bigger and easier wins.
The thing is, mostly you’ll just be sunbathing in a warm glow as you get occasional good wins, and wait for the free spins – and even when they show up, it’s no guarantee.
Still, not many 9 payline slot machines hide over 3,000 times your bet in the bonus games, so this is one Microgaming game that deserves more attention than it will probably get.
Mostly because whilst you wait for the fast action of the free spin games, this can sometimes feel like a sleepy sunny afternoon. Not bad per say, but not quite the feel you seek whilst playing mobile phone slots.
Still, those looking for some old fashion, simple, fun, can find some surprising good times hiding in this SunTide slot game.

Wild Symbol: The gold coin is wild and replaces all other symbols except scatter. The symbol shows up on all reels, but on reel 3 will expand to cover the whole reel during the base game.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3, 4 or 5 scatter trigger 15 free spins. You won't get any multiplier, but the wild symbol now expands on reels 2, 3 and 4, leading to better wins.
Plus the scatter shows up a little more often, meaning you can re-trigger this slot feature - not often, but we've done it, so not impossible either.
Everytime we see a 9 payline slot machine, we can't help but compare it to the great Thunderstruck slot that captured our hearts a decade ago.
And whilst the SunTide mobile slot doesn't quite live up to those standards, there is no doubt that with those expanding wilds, and bright graphics, it lives up to it's name.
A sunny fruity casino game, that has tides of sudden hot wins, with low periods of waiting for symbols to get juicy.
