Sunny Shores is one of the freshest Yggdrasil Gaming slots and it comes with a “feel-good” guarantee from the game studio. Released just in time for summer 2017, Sunny Shores will warm up you up for your vacation with its colourful, positive, and captivating design that aims to add a dash of tropical paradise to whatever location you find yourself in.
Apart from the cheerful audio and sunny visuals, the game also packs some interesting, yet simple, features to help you get one step closer to that summertime happiness. Just don’t expect it to turn your life around with a massive cash prize.
As with most Yggdrasil Gaming’s slots, you know that you can expect great design quality with plenty of attention to details. Sunny Shores doesn’t fail to deliver on the quality the game studio is known for, although it differs from some of its more advanced games like the Power Plant slot.
Sunny Shores is a simple game, at its core, that lacks free spins or other lucrative features like multipliers, but that's the whole point. Set against a turquoise sea on a stranded paradise beach and featuring 5-rows of tropical fruit and sea symbols like oranges and sea shells, the idea of Sunny Shores is to entertain and relax, rather than make you incredibly rich.
However, this doesn't mean that you can't land some interesting prizes. With a betting range of £0.25 - £100 and the Expandable Sunny Wild which expands both ways, there’s still some decent cash to be won at the slot, although no massive jackpots. And since it’s mobile and tablet friendly like all new Yggdrasil Gaming slots, you can play it even while stretching out on the beach.
Sunny Shores comes with an RTP of 96.2%, which makes it a reasonably rewarding slot. Thus, you can expect to enjoy a fair amount of returns, especially in longer sessions, although not as high as some other slots on the market which near the 98/99% returns zone.
When it comes to packing features, Sunny Shores doesn’t offer plenty of extras to it players, although that’s the whole point of the game. Without any free spins or multipliers, Sunny Shores puts the biggest spotlight on its only weapon – the Wilds features:
The key feature in Sunny Shores is the expandable sunny wild. Every time one of the sunny wilds lands on your reels, it will start expanding horizontally, vertically, or diagonally in at least 2 different directions, turning 1 or more symbols into wilds while on its way. But the twist is that the sunny wild can also re-emerge on the other side if it falls off the left or right side of the reels and add even more wilds for bigger wins.
Apart from expanding across the screen to boost your chances, the sunny wild symbol will also trigger the sticky wild re-spins feature. Once it does, the expanded wild will lock into its position and give you one free re-spin. If you land a new expanding wild during the re-spin, you’ll get another re-spin and another until there are no more expanding sunny wilds on the reels. So, if you’re lucky enough, you can line up some decent cashouts.
Yggdrasil Gaming are all about creating slots that you can enjoy both for the gameplay as well as the returns, and Sunny Shores is no exception to this “rule”. The game is exceptionally designed but also simple to a point of not overwhelming you with its features or graphics. Of course, the lack of plenty of extras will surely not speak to a lot of players, but this really isn’t a game meant for slot pros looking for the maximum experience. Thanks to the win-both-ways feature, the wilds, and a reasonable RTP, the games offers steady amounts of action for those looking for a great leisure slot.
