Beach bums rule the wave in this colourful Wild Water slot that’s all about big symbols and big wilds.
Whilst the soundtrack to this NetEntertainment slot game is fairly fun, reminiscent of the beach boys, you’ll soon want to shut down the noise after the 50th ‘Radical Man!’ and other generic soundbites, after each win.
That said, this Wild Water mobile slot beautifully captures a certain 60s and 70s nostalgia that brings to mind a sunny day by the sea, where catching that perfect wave, and perfect win, is just one… shark attack away?
Once you get use to the fact that all by the highest paying symbol stand 3 symbol high, a little like in the Iron Man 2 game, you’ll notice that the scatter and the free spins are everywhere.
We rarely go 100 spins without catching those waves, and it’s just as well, as that’s where the big wins show up, thanks to an expanding wild in the form of your friendly neighbourhood jaws.
Because that’s what every good 70s beach movie needs, according to this Wild Water slot.game; a man eating shark jumping out of the waves.
This Wild Water online slot hasn’t been very well loved by NetEnt game fans, which is a shame.
Some find it a little slow, others don’t appreciate the fact that those big stacked symbols are a feature onto themselves.
After all, if you find them perfectly line up next to each other, you get 20x your bet, and if you find one of each next to each other, a brilliant 200 times your bet.
Granted, it’s not our favourite NetEnt slot of all time. That candle is still held firmly in place by the Jack and The Beanstalk slot game, but there’s plenty of fun to be had in these Wild Waters.

Wild Symbol: The shark is the wild symbol and replaces all other characters on screen.
Stacked Symbols: There are 5 surfer characters on screen, and each comes stacked 3 symbols high. Not quite as high as Wolf Rising slot, but it does mean more frequent wins over 20 paylines.
Surf Team and Surf's up Instant Cash Win: Any mix of 5 surfers symbols fully stacked across the 5 reels pays 20 times your bet.
However, get one each of the surfers fully stacked across the five reels, and you'll get 200x your bet.
Scatters and Free Spins: Get 3 or more free spins on the reels, and you can trigger up to 60 free spins! However, you'll more likely win around 15.
But that's ok as the wild expands to cover the whole reel if it can create a win. And the wild symbol shows up surprisingly often.
This Wild Water slot for mobile is a bright sunny affair that, despite the annoying sounds, gives you a good chance at getting some great wins.
This is mostly thanks to those free spins, and that crazy expanding shark, but also by the fact that most of the symbols here come stacked.
Not the cleverest of slots, but much like a sunny day at the beach, still a good time to be had.
If you want something a little cleverer, the Jungle Spirit slot by the same provider is a notch above the rest.
