If there’s an award for the most colourful slot games, then the Coral Island video slot is probably going to be on the short list. Some sun glasses might be needed when playing this game but you might get to see some sunshine of your own if getting some big wins playing this EGT slot thanks to its massive payouts.
‘Coral Island’ is a five-reel online slot that has three rows of symbols and ten pay-lines. The reels are transparent so that means we can see the ocean in the backdrop to this slot but no fish or other aquatic creatures making an appearance. Those ten pay-lines are a fixed amount but you do need to set your stake which is an easy task. The minimum cost of playing this at an online casino is 0. and the most that can be wagered is. Ensure that you wager amounts that you can afford to live without if the wins don’t come your way.
The symbols in this slot fit in perfectly with the theme. There are dolphins, seahorses, crabs and other creatures that Sir David Attenborough would recognise far better than most players. There’s also the nine to Ace playing card symbols which are the low-paying symbols in this slot. It’s the dolphin who is the wild symbol though he looks anything but wild to be fair. This can substitute for other symbols and help create some wins and when that does happen, the value of the wins is doubled. If two wilds form a winning combination, that win is only doubled not quadrupled. It can’t replace the scatter symbol which is the actual island.
If you can get three of the scatter symbols landing anywhere on the reel, then this sees the punter receiving a total of 15 free spins. Those free games will be played at the betting level that you were employing when triggering the bonus round. Any wins that you get during those 15 free spins will be tripled so hopefully there will be a fair few coming along. It’s possible to re-trigger those free games so if that happens, with the tripled wins still in force, this free spins round can become even more lucrative.
As with a lot of EGT slot games, this game contains a Jackpot Cards progressive jackpot. There are four of them which are in rising amounts of cash to be won; the club, diamond, hearts and spade. The chance to win these progressive jackpots, the size of which rises after each spin and can be seen in boxes above the reels, arrives randomly but is more likely if playing at a high stake. You are then shown 12 playing cards and the player must choose them one by one until three of the same suit are revealed and that’s the jackpot you win.
The ‘Coral Island’ slot game also has a gamble feature. This appears when a win comes along in the base game but that win must be less than 1750 coins. That’s good because it takes away that moment when you insanely decide to try and gamble a top win. As is the case with several other slot games, this is the chance to double your win by correctly guessing the colour of the next playing card. It’s either going to be red or black and it’s pure chance if you can get this right. The big problem is that an incorrect guess will see the gambler lose their win even before it gets into your account balance.
There’s a fair amount happening in ‘Coral Island’ which can be played on your PC or iPhone. That saves any nasty surprises when you start playing for real. Access the paytable via the info button underneath the reels. This gives lots of details including how much each winning combinations pays. For example, five of the starfish symbols see you cash out 750x your line bet but remember if a wild symbol helps get you that win, it’s doubled to 1500x. The paytable also gives details of the Jackpot Cards and free spins round. it’s also important to see the game in action so take the chance to have some free Coral Island slot machine games.
There are several other slot games that have similar gameplay to ‘Coral Island.’ You can test out the Novomatic slot ‘Wild Thing’ which also has ten pay-lines, a free spins round and a gamble feature. Also try out the EGT slot, ‘Route of Mexico’ which has double the pay-lines but also has the Jackpot Cards progressive jackpot feature, a wild symbol on each of the reels and a free spins round though this one includes a stacked wild.
Another entertaining slot from EGT that can provide its players with some big wins. The free spins round can be very lucrative, especially if it can be re-triggered. The Jackpot Cards feature can also be profitable and at least with the gamble feature there is a limit on the wins that can be gambled. Definitely worth giving a good play.
