Shark Wash Overview
Relax Gaming has released a new slot game called Shark Wash. Which feels it took its inspiration from the movie Shark Tale and the soundtrack that came with it, called Car Wash.
We see all sorts of sharks with cleaning supplies and also some kind of big boss shark. It’s a fun and colorful theme.
You will find 5 reels that are each 4 symbols high and the game uses 1024 ways instead of lines. Any combination of three or more of the same symbols, starting from the first reel, count as a winning combination, no matter where on the reels.
This game also comes with cascading symbols. Meaning that winning symbols are removed from the reels, the rest of the symbols fall down and new symbols fall on top, creating the option for another win. This keeps repeating until no new winning combinations appear.
Besides standard suits symbols and the different sharks, you will also find wild symbols and bonus symbols on all reels.
Shark Wash comes with a maximum payout of 5.000 times your bet and is a high volatile slot game.
Shark Wash Features
Countdown Wild Feature
Wild symbols all come with a counter between 1 and 5. The counter will countdown after each winning cascade the wild symbol is used in. And the wild will stay on the reel until the counter hits zero. So in fact it acts as a sticky wild.
When a wild symbol reaches zero and is removed from the reels, the starting value of that wild symbol is added to a multiplier meter on the left. The multiplier on this meter goes up each time you fill a complete circle with wilds. The multiplier applies to all winning cascades after that. This meter can go up to x5.
Free Spins Feature
3, 4 or 5 bonus symbols will award 7, 10 and 15 free spins respectively.
During free spins the Countdown Wild Multiplier doesn’t reset between each spin and can only go up.
Each bonus symbol appearing during free spins will add 1 more free spin.
If the Bonus Buy option is available in your jurisdiction, you are able to buy the free spins feature for 80 times your bet. This will guarantee at least 3 bonus symbols.
We are used to get some insane releases from Relax Gaming, like for instance Money Train 3, which could go up to 100.000 times bet. This is not the case with Shark Wash.
Shark Wash is just a fun release. But is in no way a boring or bad game. I really enjoyed this slot. I like those, sort of, sticky wilds and that multiplier. And especially during free spins the game can really get exciting even.
For me this is a nice new release with a fun theme and great features. Definitely worth a try.
