Let’s take a trip back to the 1990s and the classic television show Baywatch. There was very little not to like about this tale of Californian lifeguards – the scantily-clad girls and boys who watched over the LA beaches, the sunshine and the gripping story lines. Well perhaps the story lines weren’t that special but the show ran for twelve years so this was clearly a popular show. Fortunately Playtech has taken the wise decision to convert that show into an online slot with a range of bonus features.
The first thing you’ll notices that the Baywatch slot does not feature the most famous member of the cast – David Hasselhoff – but it does have five reels and twenty paylines. Those with good memories will remember the three characters featured here – Caroline Holden, Matt Brody, and Neely Capshaw – and they, along with a speedboat, a jet ski and a rescue board make up the high value symbols.
Special symbols include a CJ Parker wild, a Baywatch logo scatter and a flashing yellow light bonus symbol.
Landing the yellow flashing light anywhere on reel five will reward you with the following choices:
- CJ Parker Respin – you get one free spins with up to four extra wilds added to the reels.
- Lifeguard Mini-Bonus – unearth sand covered lifeguard symbols until you find three matching characters to receive a prize based on that person.
Twelve free spins will be yours if you can land three of the Baywatch logo scatter symbols anywhere on the reels; this is a fairly basic prize with no multipliers but it is the gateway to three other features if you can land one of the three main characters stacked on the centre reel.
- Caroline Holden Feature – you’ll receive six spins with all wins tripled and the Caroline symbol replaces the other characters.
- Matt Brody Feature – six spins are yours but a wild will be added to the reels before spins one, four and six and remain in place until the end of the feature.
- Neely Capshaw – six spins will be awarded and each time Neely appears on the reels the multiplier will increase by one – the total prize will be subject to that multiplier.
Baywatch Online Slot Playing Tips
The bonus feature is triggered by the scatter symbols so if you want to play with small stakes you can reduce the paylines as much as you like. You will win proportionately less during those features though.
This is a well-designed slot with loads of bonus features to keep you entertained and it remains constantly popular at Playtech casinos. The music can be a little grating but you can easily mute that if necessary.
