Winning Waves Slots

Winning-WavesA surfer’s dream, Winning Waves is a Wager Gaming classic slot machine. The theme choice might be cool, but the actual implementation of the design doesn’t manage to make it as appealing. Still, I’m pretty sure this is the only classic slot with a surfer theme, and if you love the waves this might just be the thing that keep you busy a few hours while indoors.

It might be a 1 line/3 reel game, but for the top jackpot of up to $35,000 the symbols can even form combinations in diagonal. Other than that you’re not going to find anything special in the game, the slot offering no features.

Features of Winning Waves

Winning Waves belongs to a category of slot machines that try to be as close gameplay wise to the original pub slots that were available in casinos and bars worldwide just a couple of decades ago. Those were not complex machines, so features couldn’t be introduced in them, but with the arrival of the digital world and Internet based games, the slots are no longer as limited. This is not one of the modern 3 reel titles though, despite the graphics being different.

Betting options and jackpots

Up to five coins may be used on the only payline that is included, but the problem is that only the top jackpot gives you a different amount in exchange. The other symbols still award a single prize, no matter how many coins are selected. Each coin reaches a value of $10, but it starts at only $0.01. The maximum bet is $50.

The top jackpot is offered for three Sun symbols, which are arranged either in diagonal or horizontally. It’s like the game uses 5 lines when the Sun is involved and 1 line for any other symbol. Each of the five ways that the Sun combo can be arranged will give you a prize that varies between 600 and 3,500 coins ($35,000).

Design and symbols

The game has as a theme the world of surfing, with big waves shown in the background image, as they’re being ridden by a couple of surfers. The beach might not look that inviting, but the waves do invite you to try them yourself. The symbols are for the most part related in some way, some of them being classics but including surfboards in them (the Bar symbols).

Symbols: Sun (3,500 coins), Blue 7 (250 coins), Triple Surfboard (100 coins), Double Surfboard (50 coins) and One Surfboard (10 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

It’s an unusual slot, the reason being the way it uses one line for most symbols and five for the top jackpot. If you’re curious give it a try, at least it will not be like every other slot you’ve played.

The Winning Waves slot machine is offered through the Wager Gaming platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
