Sunny Shores is a 5 reel, 27 payline slot that is powered by Yggdrasil Gaming. Playable on a 5×5 reel set from just 10p a spin across desktop, mobile and tablet devices, it has a feel-good theme as it’s a combination of a video slot and social game.

Visually, Sunny Shores is colourful and vibrant – everything you’d expect from a summer themed release. Set in a tropical paradise, symbols on the reels include fruit and a bouncing cartoon sun. In Yggdrasil Gaming’s own words, it looks like a tropical version of Teletubbies! As for winning combinations, they can be created from the far left and far right side.

When it comes to gameplay, Sunny Shores is all about the Expanding Sunny Wild feature – each Sunny Wild that lands anywhere on the reels will expand in at least 2 opposite directions. The expansion can be 1 or 2 wilds in each direction with expansions occurring vertically, diagonally and horizontally. If you’re lucky, you can benefit from up to 16 new wilds. If the expansion exceeds the reel set, it will continue on the opposite side.

When a new Expanding Sunny Wild lands on the reels, you will trigger the Sunny Wild Respin feature – you will be rewarded with a free respin with the expanding wild remaining sticky on the reels. If you get another Expanding Sunny Wild, you will get another respin. The respins continue until no new Expanding Sunny Wild appears.

With no free spins feature, Sunny Shores is quite a simple game which is all about the Sunny Wild – the features trigger regularly which is good but it’s a low to medium variance title which is more about entertainment that big wins.

Despite being a good game, Yggdrasil Gaming has developed better slots with the volatile Vikings Go Berzerk highly recommended. If you like summer themed games, Thunderkick’s Sunset Delight is recommended.
