Baywatch

If you were old enough to watch television in the 1990s, then this theme of this Playtech developed slot machine game will need no introduction. Based on the popular lifeguard television series of the same name which starred David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson (to name but a few celebs), this game is sure to have a very broad fan-base. Baywatch is played over 5 reels and there are 20 adjustable paylines for you to tinker with. Baywatch also carries a non-progressive jackpot worth 2,000 coins which is well worth a punt. Speaking of punts, players can expect to be able to wager anything from 1p per line per spin on this television show sensation, up to a capped maximum bet of £1,000 per spin. Players do have to contend with a rather low RTP (return to player rate) of just 93.67%, though.

Special features

Baywatch makes its most famous cast member (Pamela Anderson’s CJ Parker) its wild symbol. Wild symbols can replace all other symbols barring other special icons.
The Baywatch logo is the slot’s scatter, and this icon can trigger special features, just like the flashing yellow light symbol can on the fifth reel. The former can see a free games feature activated, whilst the latter opens up the Rescue Feature. In the Rescue Bonus, players will get to enjoy the CJ Parker Re-spin (1 re-spin with up to four extra wilds) or the Lifeguard Mini Bonus (match three main characters to pocket an instant win prize).

Bonus features

The Baywatch scatter can trigger a total of 12 free spins when it appears at least 3 times on the reels in any position. Landing one of the main characters as a stacked icon on the central reel opens up more bonus opportunities, though. Caroline Holden offers an additional 6 spins with 3x multipliers, and Caroline icons replacing other characters. Matt Brody offers 6 spins with extra sticky wilds on specific spins. Neely Capshaw promises 6 spins with increasing multipliers every time that Neely appears on the reels.

Overview

Baywatch is just as much fun to play as the television show was to watch. Far more tasteful, with less wobbly bits than the series, there is no reason why anybody can’t pick up and play this Playtech developed slot.
