The Fantastic Shark School Online Pokie

April 15, 2018

Superposing the world of humans on the realm of animals has always created fantastic online pokies. One of the best at Australian online casinos is Shark School from Realtime Gaming. It is all the more popular because it is set deep under the oceans where sharks go to get an education. You can play this comically crafted online pokie with hilarious win animations at online casinos like Fair Go and Majestic Slots.

An epic theme requires an epic setting. Shark School has 5 reels, 4 rows and 50 paylines. The reels are set in the locker room. The stacked wild symbol is the octopus as a teacher. He appears only on reel 1 but substitutes for the scatter symbol as well. The scatter symbol is the school building. The high paying symbols are four senior student sharks who are the school bullies. One of them is a football back and another is a gym freak. These symbols appear stacked on the reels and start paying from combinations of two like symbols. The sharks also pay in mixed combinations. But the payouts are smaller and they start from combinations of three symbols. The smaller fish as the new students deliver the medium payouts. The playing card icons are the low paying symbols.

Three or more scatter symbols in the same spin trigger the bonus feature. You pick one of the scatter symbols on the reels and win one of three features. Swim Fishy Swim awards 25 free spins at tripled payouts. But there is a chase that plays outside the reels. If the shark catches the fish then the free spins end prematurely. If the fish can make it safely, you get the full free spins and 200 times the triggering bet as well. The Bad Sharky feature awards 3 re-spins to 10 re-spins. On each re-spin one of the sharks covers reel 3. If a fish on the reels gets eaten by a shark, then that fish will change to the shark symbol. The Don’t Eat the Teacher feature awards up to 25 free spins that start with a 2x multiplier. If a shark appears on reel 5 and the octopus on reel 1 on the same row, then the shark will try to eat the teacher. If the teacher becomes food then the free spins will end prematurely. But if the teacher survives, then the free spins continue with the multiplier increased by 1x.
