Shaaark! Slots

Shaaark!Shaaark will put in front of you a theme that is cool, but which no developer has tried prior to Wager Gaming. A shark attack is something that a lot of people fear when they get into the water, but which happens in very rare occasions (odds are 1 in 3.74 million). They’ve chosen a pretty cool design for this shark attack slot machine, so it’s a title that you will enjoy looking at, even though you might not want to be in the middle of the action, like you would with other slot machines where the action takes places on the beach.

Shaaark gives you a chance at a prize worth $40,000, not quite as valuable as in other slots from Wager Gaming. The bets you place to get there are made on 25 lines or less, while the 5 reels available inside will give you features like the free games, the multipliers, scatter symbols or wilds.

Features of Shaaark!

The Shark is the game’s wild feature, while its Fin acts as the scatter. These two symbols are the only ones that can give you something extra, the first one being a substitute and jackpot trigger, while the second feature can award prizes and free spins with multipliers.

The Shark shown in the wild symbol is a vicious creature, in full attack mode and showing a huge set of teeth. What you can expect from a wild symbol is for it to act as another symbol, when it appears on a payline where that action would result in the formation of a new combination. For example, if you have three symbols arranged on the same line and on the first four reels, and the wild is located exactly in the spot where the fourth would be needed for the combo to form, it will do so and you will get a new combo and its prize. The wild is also capable of forming its own combinations, though the odds are quite small, especially since the top jackpot is awarded by it.


The Shark Fin is used by the game as the scatter symbol. What gives this symbol its name is the ability to be on multiple reels and in random positions on them, and still give you a cash prize and free spins. 2+ Fins are required for a cash prize, while free spins need 3+. The most you can win directly from the Fin symbols is 100x the bet.

Free Games Feature

The 3+ scattered Fins will get you 10 free spins when they appear during the same spin. For the duration of these spins, prizes are multiplied by 2. Some of the symbols will become Shark wilds for the duration of the wilds, increasing the odds of getting the top jackpot and more prizes overall.

Betting options and jackpots

You are allowed to place your bets on as many lines as you want, out of the 25 available. You are required to use one coin for each one, a value that can’t be changed. The thing that you can work with to decide the line bet value is the denomination of the coin, which goes between $0.01 and $10. The biggest wager available to you is worth $250.

The prize is one of the few things that disappoint, at least when it’s compared with the typical Wager Gaming title. It has 4,000 coins to offer, or up to $40,000 cash.

Design and symbols

I’ve enjoyed the design of Shaaark, thanks to the quality of the individual graphics. The themed symbols were good enough that I even missed the boring playing cards that the game uses. The background picture shows you a beach with people panicking on it because a shark has been sighted in the distance. On the symbols you also see the shark and people that are in danger or in panic.

Symbols: Shark (wild, 4,000 coins), Shark Fin (scatter), Man (1,000 coins), Seal (250 coins), Bitten Surfboard (200 coins), No Swimming Sign (200 coins), NGG-789 (150 coins), Ace (150 coins), King (100 coins), Queen (100 coins), Jack (100 coins) and Ten (100 coins).


Is It Worth Playing?

The graphics are your best reason to play it, while the features are standard for this developer and the payouts are below average. I’d try it if I were you, it’s a fun way to unwind, despite the sharks.

Shaaark! can be found at any Wager Gaming casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
