Sunny Shores, released on May 24, 2017, is a casino game made by Yggdrasil Gaming. Generally, the setting for the Sunny Shores partially resembles that of the developer’s June 2017 slot named Spina Colada; Sunny Shores is among Yggdrasil’s few fruit slots, alongside games like Winterberries (January 2016), Fruitoids (May 2018), Pumpkin Smash (October 2017), and Pyrons (2014). Sunny Shores’ rival games include China Shores from Konami and Sunny Money from Eyecon.
Hereby, the term “Sunny Shores” refers to the featured exotic sunny shoreline in the background. The Sunny Shores’ players seek three, four, or five matches among its eight win symbols.
Sunny Shores Game Characteristics
Sunny Shores, whose volatility rating is 26%, has 27 fixed pay lines and a square (5X5) grid; normally, these 27 pay lines would have been multiplied by the chosen coin value to get the cash bet, but those values are multiplied by 25 coins instead.
The Sunny Shores symbols are: a yellow emoticon of a Sunny Wild (this is a substituting and a free spins-triggering symbol), a pearl in a pink oyster shell, a strawberry, a bunch of black grapes, a ripe pineapple, a bunch of three bananas, a pear, and a watermelon.
After a paradise-inspired introduction video, players learn about: the Sunny Wild symbol that can be duplicated as much as 16 times at a go on the grid; and the pay lines that pay both from left to right and vice versa, excluding five matching symbols. The Sunny Shores players proceed to the game panel whose coin values are: $0.004, $0.01, $0.02, $0.03, $0.04, $0.05, $0.06, $0.07, $0.08, $0.09, $0.10, $0.20, $0.30, $0.40, $0.50, $0.60, $0.70, $0.80, $0.90, $1.00, $1.30, $1.50, $1.70, $2.00, $2.50, $3.00, $3.50, $4.00, and $5.00.
The total bets for the Sunny Shores are: $.0.10 (minimum total bet), $0.25, $0.50, $0.75, $1.00, $1.25, $1.50, $1.75, $2.00, $2.25, $2.50, $5.00, $7.50, $10.00, $12.50, $15.00, $17.50, $20.00, $22.50, $25.00, $32.50, $37.50, $42.50, $50.00, $62.50, $75.00, $87.50, $100.00, and $125.00 (maximum total bet).
The Sunny Shores’ payouts for three-of-a-kind, four-of-a-kind, and five-of-a-kind, respectively, are: pearls pay X25, X60, and X100; pineapples pay X20, X50, and X200; strawberries offer X15, X40, and X150; bananas give X9, X25, and X90; grapes offer X8, X25, and X80; watermelons offer X7, X20, and X70; and pears give X6, X20, and X60. The non-progressive jackpot is $40500.
Although not a regular symbol, the Sunny Wild can be duplicated to the left, right, upwards, and downwards. During this duplication, which starts from the centermost wild symbol, the sunny symbols can be expanded twice or four times then added in opposing sides namely either left and right or upwards and downwards; however, there is a rare occasion when they can be added in the four directions.
The Sunny Shores software is good, and the instrumental beats-based sound effects are soothing. The motion graphics make playing Sunny Shores cheerful, ranging from the welcoming free-and-easy introduction video and sprinklers; to the scenery formed by the palm trees in the backdrop of the waterfall and blue ocean, which can trigger a soul searching mood when playing Sunny Shores; to the sunny wild emoticon executing the stone skipping-like bounces on the exotic beach, before diving in the seaside paradise.
