More about the Software Provider
Elk Studios produces online slots using statistical models from its studio in Stockholm, Sweden. It also brings its characters to life with beautiful art and elegant animations. Elk Studios is also a "mobile first" slots manufacturer, which means that all of its games are designed to play, look, and sound amazing on mobile devices.
In October 2013, Elk released its very first online slot – The Lab, which was followed by Electric Sam, Champion's Goal, Taco Brothers, DJ Wild, Bloopers, Poltava, and several other entertaining titles.
Appearance and Sound Effects
Sam on the Beach is set on the sunny island of Hawaii, and the game screen gives you a splendid beachside view of the sea, palm trees, mountains, and yachts, as well as a fun Caribbean inspired soundtrack.
The paytable symbols include the four members of the lovable troll family – Sam, Sandra (the wife), Maggie (Sam and Sandra's daughter), and Ted (Sam's brother). Each of the four characters comes with their own special feature called an Electric Treat, which we'll explain in the next section of this review. The other symbols include the game logo, a bell, a crab, a starfish, and a seahorse.
Bonuses and Special Features
The Sam on the Beach logo is the wild symbol, and it can help you make winning combos by replacing all other symbols except the bell.
The bell is the scatter symbol, and when three, four, or five bells appear anywhere in view, you get five, ten or fifteen free games respectively. Furthermore, every additional bell that appears during the feature awards another free spin.
If you manage to land Ted, Sam, Maggie, and Sandra in any order in a horizontal line, the Beach Memories Re-spin Feature is triggered. It awards one re-spin with four Sticky Wilds.
When you create a winning combo in the Free Spins Feature of Sam on the Beach using one of the four character symbols, that character's Electric Treat is initiated. Maggie uses her harpoon to destroy low paying symbols on the reels and allow new ones to fall down and take their place. Ted sets down his radio which gives you a Sticky Multiplier when three or more of his symbols appear. Sandra gives you win multipliers when she lands three times on the reels in the same spin, and Sam electrifies random symbols to turn them into Sticky Wilds.
Sam on the Beach uses five reels, three rows of symbols, and 243 paylines, and has an excellent RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 96.30%.
The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-friendly game controls when played on mobile devices.
Like Electric Sam, Sam on the Beach is one of those online slots you'll want to return to time and again. It's got a great holiday vibe, a superb RTP of 96.30%, and a trio of bonus features (the Sam on the Beach Wild, Beach Memories Re-Spin, and Free Spins) that help to make every single spin a pleasure.
