The SunTide pokie is an online pokie that was made by Microgaming and it found its way into multiple Australian online casinos March 2016. This game has a Summer/Sun/Ocean/Tropical/Fruit theme with 5 reels and 9 winning paylines and it has a massive fixed jackpot worth 75,000.00 coins to play for. You can play on this pokie in the real money mode or in the free play mode and you can pay for one spin on this game from as little as 0.09 coins up to a maximum of 22.50 coins.
This game has both Wild Symbols and Scatter Symbols. The Wild Symbol is the Gold Tablet and the Scatter Symbol is the Sunset. This Wild Symbol can land in any position across any of the reels and it has the ability to substitute all of the symbols on the reels apart from the Scatter Symbol to help generate new winning combinations. Whenever this Wild Symbol shows up on the centre reel (reel 3), it will instantly expand to fill the entire reel from top to bottom.
The main Bonus Feature on this pokie is a Free Spins Bonus Round and this will only ever trigger when three or more of the Sunset Scatter Symbols land in any position across any of the reels. The great news about this Free Spins Bonus Round is that you will receive a total of 15 Free Spins which can be retriggered and the Expanding Wild Symbol that normally only ever shows up on reel 3 during normal play can now show up on reels 2, 3 and 4. When all three of the middle reels are filled with Expanding Wild Symbols, the payout can be massive.
The other regular symbols to keep an eye out for on this game include Cherries, Strawberries, Lemons, Watermelons, Oranges, Single Gold Bars, Bells, Purple 7s and Diamonds. The Diamonds and the Scatter Symbols are the two joint-second highest valued symbols on the reels and five of either of these matching symbols showing up across any of the active paylines will instantly trigger a 2,500.00 coin prize.
The highest valued symbol on the reels is the Wild Symbol and when five of these show up across any of the paylines you will instantly be awarded a massive 25,000.00 coin prize. Just four of these showing up along any of the paylines will trigger a guaranteed 2,500.00 coin prize instead and there is no way that you can adjust how many paylines each spin is played with, therefore each spin will always be played with the full amount of paylines active.
There are some adjustable settings and useful features available on this game which allow you to keep track of your game history and your win history. You also have the option of being able to view your balance either as coins or as coins & credits. If you have enough balance and don’t want to keep manually pressing the spin button, you can adjust the autoplay feature and this will allow you to play up to as many as 500 autospins.
