Shark Bite slot review
If you were sick of the sight of Finding Nemo-esque online video slots doing the rounds, along comes slot developer Cryptologic with its own take on the world of anthropomorphized fishies, sharks and starfish.
Shark Bite, a 5-reel, 25-payline slot borrows heavily from Nemo, Shark Tale et al to give you an underwater world where the clown fish are cute and the sharks a little bit scary.
Starfish and stingrays make up the reels, with aquatic 10-through-Ace symbols also jostling for space down in the crystal-clear depths.
The lines are fixed in this one, remember, so you’ll be forking out $0.25 a spin minimum, but when you see the bonuses on offer, you’ll probably be glad of the betting.
Jaws is the Wild
The Shark symbol is the game’s Wild, and it appears on Reels 2-5, substituting for every symbol other than the scatters. But hang on – that toothy horror has more up his gills than it first looks, as he expands horizontally across the reels to give you more wins.
Find the Treasure to Win 10 Free Spins
Both Scatters appear on Reels 2-4 only. First, hit three Treasure Chests to activate a free spins round with 10 spins awarded. Hit them again in a single spin and the free spins will re-trigger.
This Is One Feeding Frenzy You Will Want to Witness
Hit two or more Bonus Gems Scatters anywhere on Reels 2-5 during the free spins, however, and you’ll trigger the feature Feeding Frenzy bonus. Essentially a Pick Me Bonus game, you are awarded three picks from various schools of fish – choose different schools to win bonus prizes.
Although the reels, strangely for Cryptologic, look a bit scruffy and jerky, you know what you’re getting with Crypto – assured, professional and with great bonuses.
And if this slot has got you in the mood for underwater fun, you’re in luck – there are plenty of alternatives out there: Play 'n' Go’s watery adventure, Pearl Lagoon, and NextGen’s superlative underwater adventure, the Enchanted Mermaid slot, are both worth a shout.
