Beach is a fun and colourful online video slot game by Net Entertainment, the leaders in online games and software. The theme of this game, as the name infers is all about a tropical beach and the washed up objects and aquatic creatures one might find along the shoreline. In keeping with the theme of the game, when players press the spin button a giant wave comes along and washes away the reels, depositing a new set of reel symbols. The backdrop to this slot is a tropical paradise with blue waters, sandy beaches and a couple of swaying palm trees.

The game includes a number of bonus features in the form of a wild symbol, a multiplying second wild symbol, a scatter symbol and a free spin bonus round. On the reels players will find a host of aquatic creatures and shoreline items. Some of the highest paying symbols in the game include a conch shell, a clam shell, a treasure chest, a starfish and an oyster shell. The treasure chest is the highest paying symbol paying out 20 000 coins if all ten coins are inserted. If the octopus is used in the winning combination the jackpot is doubled to 40 000 coins.
Driftwood Wild Symbol
The wild symbol in Beach is the driftwood with the crab attached. The wild symbol appears on all reels except for reel three which is designated to the second wild symbol.

The only two symbols the driftwood wild symbol cannot substitute for is the octopus substitute wild and the bottle scatter symbol.
Octopus Wild Symbol Number Two
