Sam on the Beach is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot powered by ELK Studios. Playable from 20p to £100 per spin across desktop, mobile and tablet devices, the game is based on Sam who featured in ELK Studios’ Electric Sam which was released in 2014. This time, he’s in the Caribbean with his family!

You are taken to a Caribbean beach with blue skies and palm trees as the backdrop – visually idyllic, symbols on the reels include lower value crabs, seahorses and sea stars all in neon. You also have bells and members of Sam’s family – Maggie (Sam’s daughter), Sandra (Sam’s wife), Ted (Sam’s older brother) and of course Sam. It comes with a soft soundtrack reminiscent of a Caribbean party island.

When it comes to bonus features, there’s the Beach Memories Respin feature which is played when you land all 4 members of the family on the same row. You will then be rewarded with a free respin with Sticky Wilds replace the 4 family members. The good news is that this feature can stack up to 3 times!

The main attraction is the Free Spins Bonus feature which is played when you land 3, 4 or 5 of Uncle Ted’s treasure ship bell symbols – you will receive 5, 10 or 15 free spins. Taking place at night time, look out for the bell appearing during the feature as an additional free spin will be added to your tally.

Furthermore, you can benefit from Electric Treats as each family member has their own special feature which is triggered when they land during the feature. Here are the details:

  • Sticky Wild – Electric Sam lands during the feature to give you sticky wilds.
  • Sticky Multiplier – Ted lands during the feature to give you 2x or 3x multipliers.
  • Bonus Multiplier – when Sandra lands on the reels, she will increase the multiplier by 1 up to 10x.
  • Imploding Symbols – Maggie appears to clear away he low value symbols from the reels.

As you can see, the Free Spins Bonus feature is where the bigger wins will come from – especially if you manage to get a multiplier up to 10x! Sam on the Beach is a medium to high variance offering with a maximum in of 2,275 times your total stake. If you like beach themed slots, I also recommend you try Quickspin’s Spinions Beach Party which is also high variance.
