Sunny Shores Introduction
Everything about this game is totally charming, from the intro animation to the cheery little suns that light up the wheels. The backdrop is a really cute cartoon tropical island and the bouncing animated fruit dancing to the catchy soundtrack are designed to make you feel good. There’s a wide range of betting options too, because Yggdrasil's Sunny Shores is not your typical 5 reel slot.
Here we have a 5x5 grid, with 27 fixed paylines and wagers from as little as 0.01 credit all the way up to 125 credits, and a wide range of multiplier prizes from 60x for 5 juicy pears across the reels up to 300x for a full house of glistening pearls. This may not satisfy the real high rollers but it’s a game that’s perfectly pitched for those who enjoy a low volatility pokie where you hit smaller wins often.
Sunny Side up
The base gameplay of Sunny Shores is quite straightforward as you aim to land winning combinations across the reels, paying out from the far left and the far right side allowing you to win both ways. But the symbol you’re looking for in Sunny Shores is that bouncy little sun. This is the wild symbol and behaves like any wild symbol does, substituting for every other symbol in the game.
But that’s when the fun starts, because this bouncy little ball of fun then expands across your reels to cover at least 2 and up to 4 spaces in any direction. Theoretically, it’s possible to cover the entire 5x5 grid in Sunny Wilds. Better yet, they’ll earn you a respin and they’ll be sticky as the wheels spin again. It’s a simple little feature but a clever one, and stands to reward the right player with some big, big wins.
Of course you don’t just have to play Sunny Shores on your desktop because it’s been optimised for your smartphone and tablet too, whether you’re running iOS or Android. This is the perfect kind of pokie to go mobile with, as it’s so easy and fun to play when out and about.
From the opening animation of the bouncy little sun to the simple but fun gameplay, there’s a lot to love about Sunny Shores. Yes, all that perkiness - and the jaunty theme tune - might make it just too cutesy for some, but when those suns start expanding across the grid and the fruit start bouncing you can’t help but smile as you rack up another big win.
Although the multipliers are reasonable, this probably isn’t a game for the high rollers who like to get their adrenaline pumping. Instead it’s a perfect game for the casual player, and has bags of charm that makes it a really fun game.
