Come October 12th we will be heading back to summer thanks to the new Baywatch slot by IGT. Here’s everything you can expect, and more.
Let’s be as clear as possible. This Baywatch slot has absolutely nothing to do with the 2017 movie flop with Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron.
This is all about the original TV series of David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson fame.
The fact that this IGT mobile slot is coming in the same year as the film is either clever marketing, or pure coincidence.
Either way, let it not be said that IGT don’t know how to give people exactly what they want: a big fat dose of nostalgia.
And we don’t have a video of the game, because IGT tend to release those details fairly late to the game being released.
So instead, we have something waaaaay better instead:
Are you ready? If you sang along to that theme tune, then there’s no doubt in the world that you are.
Get 4 deposit bonsuses, plus free spins on great NetEnt slots, the moment you register.
In fact, if like us, you were one of the millions who sat in front of the TV eagerly following every bouncing… plot… then we suspect you’ll want to know a little more.
This bit is for those of you who may not quite understand the charm to this lifeguard TV series.
And to be honest, there’s not much we can do. You’re either too young to remember the show, in which case, we can’t say you’re missing out too much.
It’s pure cheesy 90s melodrama. Maybe go play on the Family Guy slot instead, nothing we say will convince you to play.
Or perhaps you did live through the period, but never really got hooked.
In which case, if a TV show running from 1989 to 2001, airing in 148 countries and every continent except Antartica, didn’t get to you, we doubt we will.
This is for Baywatch fans, of which there are plenty, so don’t feel too guilty about leaving now and reading about the new Blood Sucker 2 slot from NetEnt.
Honestly… kinda, but not really?
This is Baywatch remember. The main draw to this show was mostly sitting right under Pamela Anderson’s face.
You get 5 deposit bonuses totally £€1,200 in extra cash, plus 20 free spins on signup.
Let’s not try and kid ourselves that IGT need to be that respectful to the original TV series.
To be honest, the theme is a little generic. You get a vista of a blue ocean framed by sandy shores, and the low paying symbols are general life guard paraphernalia.
It’s a little cartoony, and even the four main characters look like they had a fight with a few too many airbrushes, and lost.
But, in a way, the slight cheesy look might work well for them – after all, until we showed you the video above, which one of us had that clear a memory of what Baywatch looked like?
This is always the hardest bit to judge, because whilst you can easily say whether you like the look of something, until you play a slot, how can you know if you love the game?
We are still a few weeks from that however, so we’ll do our best to be as judgemental as possible, based on very little information.
The obvious is the two game features that happen randomly during the base game, and come as standard during the free spins.
And whilst getting lots of reels wild sure sound like a lot of fun, it’s the Teamwork feature that intrigues us.
Because when we say it turns into a ‘double symbol’ we don’t mean like in the Flowers slot when you can get 10 of a kind wins.
No, IGT are doing something altogether different, ‘upgrading’ a single lifeguard symbol to pay as if it were two lifeguard symbols.
It should, in theory, create easier and bigger wins. In theory.
How it will work in practice, we’re not sure, but it will be fun to try out. After all, as far we can recall, we can’t remember seeing a similar feature in other phone slots out there.
Should you save every penny you usually reserve for gambling and keep it in a pot until October 12th?
No. No you shouldn’t.
This Baywatch slot machine looks like fun, but short of being the kind of gal/guy who still has a David Hasselhoff poster on their bedroom ceiling, this isn’t that revolutionary.
But whilst you wait for the beach of Santa Monica Bay, there’s plenty of other contenders.
For one, the closest we can think that might re-create the same sort of gameplay is the brilliant IGT Sherlock Holmes movie slot, which we gave 5 stars when it came out last year.
Now that’s pretty big praise.
Best place to play has to be Casumo casino, where you get all the IGT games and more, with plenty of surprising adventures.
Plus they also have the HoffMania slot from Novomatic, if you’re looking for a little cheesy nostalgic kick.
Not to mention that a £€1,200 5 deposit bonus and 200 free spins that will no doubt keep you busy till the 12th of October.T&Cs ApplyStart Playing at Casumo »
