Spring Break Online Slot Game
Spring Break is an online slot game created by renowned casino software developer Microgaming. This slot is based on the American tradition of college students heading to sunny beaches around Easter to spend their Spring Break eating, drinking and having fun.
The game contains 5 reels and 9 paylines, and offers both scatter and wild symbols. The game’s bonus features include a free spins feature that awards players 15 free spins and a 3x multiplier on the respective wins, and also a gamble feature.
Graphics and Sound Effects
Spring Break is centred on a beach-based getaway for college students, and Microgaming has kept this in mind when designing the game’s graphics. The game is set on a simple deep blue background with a golden pay table framing the screen. The reels are also solid blue in colour, which draws attention to the colourful reel symbols which are all reminiscent of beach barbecues and carefree evenings spent at beach parties.
These Spring Break reel symbols are 2-dimensional and cartoonish in appearance, and feature vivid colours that are fitting with the fun, summery theme of this online slot. Also accompanying the game’s relaxing atmosphere is a soundtrack reminiscent of a packed beach, in which seagulls call as they fly overhead and a group of holiday makers laugh and converse.
On the reels are a number of items and characters one might expect to find while on a leisurely seaside Spring Break. There are a few symbols depicting various fast foods, including slices of pizza, hamburgers, nachos and burritos, as well as melting red ice lollies, a red hot barbecue and clusters of beers. Additional Spring Break reel symbols include characters such as a group of sunbathing women in bikinis, a group sitting on benches along the beachfront and watching the sunset and a surfer in a red beach buggy.
The ‘Spring Break’ logo serves as the game’s wild symbol. This logo wild symbol can substitute all other reel symbols with the exception of the scatter symbol to create winning combinations. Furthermore, all winning combinations containing a wild symbol will be doubled.
Scatter Symbol and Scatter Pays
The Spring Break scatter symbol is the ‘Beach Party’ symbol. Landing 3 or more of these symbols anywhere on the slot reels will activate the Beach Party Free Spins feature, and 2 or more of these symbols appearing on the reels will award a multiplied value of between 2x and 500x the total bet.
Beach Party Free Spins Feature
Once the Beach Party Free Spins feature has been triggered, players will be instantly awarded 15 free spins. Any wins won during these free spins will be tripled thanks to a 3x multiplier, and players can also retrigger this Free Spins feature by landing 3 more Beach Party scatter symbols on the reels during the feature.
Spring Break also offers a gamble feature, which allows players the chance to double or quadruple their most recent win. Players must correctly guess the colour of a hidden playing card to double their wagers, or must pick the correct suit of the card to quadruple their wagers.
