What Can You See at the Sea?
This game presents you with a five reel and four row layout, therefore providing a slightly larger interface than is considered the norm for video slots. On these reels, you’ll find some very colourful icons, all of which are, of course, related to the idea of being on holiday at the sea. So, you’ll become accustomed to reels filled with beach balls and parasols, extreme green jet skis, a cocktail of the most tempting nature, as well as both a surfer dude and a blonde beach babe on vacation. Other icons include the standard A, J, K, Q, 10 and 9 symbols, and one or two others which initiate special features in the game.
In addition to the standard layout, gamers will be able to place wagers on 40 separate pay lines, if they so choose. These are customisable, allowing you the opportunity to reduce them to as low as you want. The game’s coin value is set at $0.01, but the bet you’re able to place per line is changeable. Therefore, you can alter this up from its minimum of a single coin per line to the maximum of 100. This allows a maximum wager of $4,000 per spin to be placed. Meanwhile, the addition of an ‘Autoplay’ button allows you to spin the reels a certain number of times consecutively at the same wager level.
It’s a shame that Novomatic felt the need to include its fairly annoying arcade tones in this product, as it has the potential for so much more in terms of soundtrack.
How to Find Your Seaside Treasure
The wild icon in this game is represented by the flashy sun, which will substitute for all other icons on the reels, except for the bonus. It’s a wonderfully animated icon, and often appears stacked on the middle three rows, leading to the possibility of even stronger and/or multiple pay outs.
In addition, there’s a gamble feature which has been integrated into the game. This is triggered at the end of every successful winning combination in the base game, and allows players the chance to double their winnings. Opting to go ahead with this will see you presented with a deck of playing cards, and it’s up to you to guess whether the next card to be turned over will be red or black. A correct guess doubles your winnings, while an incorrect guess will see them lost.
Finally, the image of the thermometer acts as Costa del Cash’s bonus icon, and this has the functionality of a scatter symbol. Therefore, should three or more of these appear anywhere on the reels, you’ll trigger the 10 freespins with the ‘Hot Beach Bonus’ included. This dictates that during the freespins round, the win multiplier for all prizes is increased by one for each freespin. That means it has the potential to increase up to times 10.
Fun in the Sun
Costa del Cash will provide all players with a very vibrant and intriguing game, complete with excellent extras and pleasing game play. The inclusion of its standard soundtrack noises seems a little bit lazy and doesn’t contribute anything to the actual product itself. However, if you’re able to get past this (or utilise the mute button), you’ll find that there’s a compelling game to participate in a few spins of, with the potential for vast pay outs.
