Suntide

suntide-slot-logoMicrogaming tried to bring us to the Caribbean with their new creation: Suntide. This new online slot machine has an incredible beachy atmosphere with the sunset as a background in a profound and deep orange, is not the first company to choose the beach as their creative muse in order to design a layout for a game, so there is not anything exceptional about it.

What I did like a lot is that you won’t find the classic symbols, the basics 9 through A, instead you’ll have a variety of fruits that will make the coast experience a lot more rewarding. They have developed in this 5 reel game fruits in the sort of oranges, cherry, watermelon, lemons, and strawberry.

Developer

This is a British-based company that has been around since 1994, they actually developed the first real online casino in the world, talking about breakthrough companies. Their experience in the online casino business is massive: over 800 games and still counting.

They have gradually made a reputation for themselves from game to game, and they have come up with innovative and rare games throughout their existence. They have received numerous awards in a rather long but fulfilling time in the industry.

How To Play it

They didn’t come up with something new in this product launch when you talk about playability. Even though the first sense that they try to stimulate is the sight, with those cool and very well picked colors, they leave it like that.

You need to spin and there is a button for it located on the lower right corner of the screen. You will have the classic buttons including an autoplay function for the long lasting playing hours and your credit balance, bet balance and your win balance is available from left to right.

Special features

I have to admit that the thing I love the most from the folks in Microgaming is their originality. But, in spite of me, this title has a lot of similarities with Summertime and it was tremendously difficult to find anything new and innovative from Suntide.

But there are some things that might redeem this title. First of all, the music is perfectly coupled with the layout and the design. This is a must in this era; you cannot overlook the power of the looks in a game.

Besides the layout, I really love when they set aside the classic symbols like 9, 10, J, Q, K and A and try to make something extra. Very clean and enjoyable, a good interface but that’s about it. Trying to scratch the surface of a very simple game to find something good I think is about fair to name the simple and easy way of playing this title.

Maximum Payouts

It’s a boomer that there aren’t multipliers and the coin range is limited from 0.09 to 22.50. The jackpot is absurdly limited, is only 8,000.

Summary

Basically, the people in Microgaming tried to make a classic game without creating too much. This is clearly a mistake of reading the era and how the players think nowadays. Perhaps, this is a long-standing debate on how the companies must focus their attention in order to gain an important market shares.

This simple, yet fun, theme is repetitive and isn’t original at all. The beach and the sunset it has been used a lot, and it will continue to be used in the future. It will give you the sensation of being in the beach with a really soothing atmosphere, but I don’t think that without more interactions with the player this title will stand out from its competition.
