Shark Bite Slots

Shark-BiteShark Bite might put the fierce predator of the oceans in the center of the action, but the design doesn’t show him off that often. It’s more a game about the beauty of the ocean, about the creatures that inhabit it and the plant life and corals that are present there. Underwater themed games are often a lot of fun and a pleasure to look at, and it’s the case with Shark Bite as well. Cryptologic is the developer that created this slot.

You can bet on 25 lines, the game having 5 reels to host them all. You will find a bonus game which is triggered through the free spins, along with scatter symbols and expanding wilds. The jackpot of Shark Bite is worth $10,000.

Features of Shark Bite

The beauty of the design isn’t the only thing that the game has to offer. A wild symbol that can expand horizontally will appear at times, along with scatter symbols, free spins and a bonus game.

One of the things I enjoyed about Shark Bite is the expanding wild. It doesn’t expand like wilds from other slots. Instead, when it appears on one of the last four reels, it will expand horizontally and to the right. All the symbols which are on the same row and to the right of the wild will become wild as well. With the exception of the scatters, the wild replaces any other symbol and assists you with the formation of new combos.

Free Games Feature

The Free Games scatter is a symbol that can appear on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels. You need it scattered on all three reels, to get the free games started. 10 free games are awarded when this happens.


One advantage of the free spins, besides the fact that they don’t cost you anything, is that combinations form both by appearing from left to right and from right to left. You can’t retrigger these free spins.

Feeding Frenzy Bonus

This feature starts only if you get the right symbols while in free spins mode. It needs the Bonus symbol to appear at least two times, on the reels 2, 3 or 4.


A total of 3 picks are offered and you have to choose from the school of fish and then you get paid. Once the picks are over, the game takes the total score obtained and uses it as a multiplier on the total bet. Up to 30x the bet can be awarded as a prize.

Betting options and jackpots

You are not allowed to change the number of lines that are used each round, so you always have 25 active. One coin is used for each payline, with a denomination that you choose, within the $0.01 to $10 range. The total can be as small as $0.25, while the maximum is $250.

With a $10 coin used per line, you can win up to 1,000 coins, worth up to $10,000.

Design and symbols

While the shark bite is visible in one of the symbols of the slot, that’s the only place where the theme is truly visible. Without it, the design focuses only on the ocean and what lies at the bottom. A sunken ship is shown behind the transparent reels, with schools of fish swimming around. Various sea creatures and fish are used as symbols, and even the playing cards have them.


Symbols: Shark (wild), Treasure Chest (scatter), School of fish (bonus), Shark Bite Logo (1,000x), Oscar Fish (750x), Purple Fish (500x), Hammerhead Shark (500x), Starfish (300x), Plant (100x), Ace Snake (75x), King Snake (75x), Queen Snake (50x) and Jack Snake (50x).

Is It Worth Playing?

Yes, it’s an enjoyable game, with only themed symbols and decent graphics, plus some interesting features, but also with average top payouts.

Shark Bite can be found at any Cryptologic casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
