Just like Sam's first outing, the design in Sam on the Beach is impressive - the reels include a selection of lower value neon signs and more importantly, members of Sam's family. Joining Sam are his dreadlocked brother Ted, his wife Sandra and daughter Maggie. The clan are central to the features on offer here and there are plenty of them.
Beach Memories Respin feature - land all 4 members of the family on the same row and you'll trigger a respin. This feature can stack up to 3 times.
Free Spins Bonus feature - land 3, 4 or 5 of the ship's bell symbol and you'll be awarded 5, 10 or 15 free spins. Whenever a bell lands during the feature, another free spin will be added to your total. The free spins also include some Electric Treats - each character offers their own special something extra:
- Sticky Wild - random sticky wilds are awarded when Electric Sam lands during the feature.
- Sticky Multipliers - these can double or treble payouts and become active when Ted lands during a free spin.
- Bonus Multiplier - every time that Sandra lands, a multiplier will increase. This can boost your payouts by up to 10x.
- Imploding Symbols - daughter Maggie fires her harpoon. Lower value symbols implode to improve your chances of landing a high value combination.
Just like the original, Sam on the Beach is a glossy affair as far as design goes. The bright and colourful visuals are done 3D style and work very well.
There is plenty of variety on offer here too - the 243 ways to win game engine plus a shot at a re-spin keeps the base game action bobbing along. More interesting is the Free Spins Bonus feature where the extras on offer from the family members certainly spice up the action. This is a fairly volatile game with the variance in the medium to high range.
Electric Sam's maiden outing, Electric Sam, proved popular with players. Expect more of the same in Sam on the Beach which combines nice design with some nifty extras.
