Microgaming Launched Suntide Pokie Machine

suntide-slot-logoSuntide appears to be a modern game with classic inspiration, and in more ways than one. It has 5 reels, but there are only 9 paylines on them, while the symbols and the theme are mostly fruit based.

You will discover symbols with Bar icons on them, with strawberries, lemons, oranges and others that are quite often used in pub pokie’s with fewer reels and paylines than this one has. It comes from Microgaming and it’s one of their newer titles, so I would’ve expected a lot more from it than what it offers. It does have better features than most 9 payline pokies though, including free spins, scatters and expanding wilds.

What We Love

The pokie’s design looks fresh and the symbols, though classics, were at least made in a good enough resolution and with enough details to make them easy on the eyes.

The list of features starts with the expanding wild, which sounds good in theory, but in practice you only get this symbol on the 3rd reel.

If it does appear there, it can expand and take over the entire reel, giving you a better chance to form a winning combination. All that is left is for you to have the two other symbols on the first two reels and on the same line. The image which is used for this wild is that of a gold medallion.

The other major symbol in the base game is the scatter, which is simply marked “Free Spins”, and which can trigger the free games by landing in a minimum of three locations.

As a scatter symbol, it’s less important where on those reels the symbols land, and that’s great in this case, since only 9 paylines are used on the 5 reels. You get 15 free spins in this pokie, if the requirements are met, during which the middle three reels can all have expanding wilds on them.

What We Do Not Like

I’m sure that modern pokie machines with classic looks are enjoyed by plenty of people, otherwise developers wouldn’t make them anymore, but I’m personally not a fan. There are a lot of superb designs being released these days, and Suntide’s design, while not entirely bad, could be from 5 years ago just as well.

Worth Playing?

As long as you enjoy this kind of game, with few paylines and with classic influences in the design, Suntide could be an OK title to try out. Don’t expect it to compensate with its features though, they’re not that impressive either.
