Shark Frenzy is a new casino slot from Slotmill that takes us down the ocean’s depths, where we cooperate with a shark to net some big wins. The ocean/underwater theme is, perhaps together with Ancient Egypt, the most commonly used setting in slots. Generally, it focuses on fishing, as we’ve seen in the Big Bass Bonanza series and Fishin’ Frenzy, to name some of the most popular releases. Thus, we always hold back our excitement upon entering a new ocean game. Thankfully, Shark Frenzy is quite different from visually similar games, with its 3 different feature buys and a boatload of potential. Let’s dive in!
Shark Frenzy is a video slot from Slotmill that features a setup of 5 reels, 5 rows, and 30 paylines. Players can choose between making a Min.bet of 0.15 and a Max.bet of 60. The game has an RTP of 96.13%, placing it just above the industry average on that metric. It’s played at medium/high volatility and can net you a max win of 7777x the bet.
The ocean is full of surprises, such as the features Wild Shark, Scatter Symbol, Respin Frenzy, Free Spins, and Fast Track Buys.
Entering the game, you’ll instantly notice one of its biggest draws. The bright, cartoonish colors create a pretty environment and a lovely atmosphere. Instead of using a solid frame, the grid positions are made clear by what looks like a chessboard, making it easy to follow. Once again, we’re highly impressed by Slotmill’s graphical production.
Shark Frenzy can be played on all common mobile devices and desktops. A winning combination is created by landing 3 or more matching symbols on consecutive reels within the game’s lines, starting from the leftmost reel.
The lower-paying symbols consist of J, Q, K, and A. A full line of 5 with these pays 4x-5x the bet. The higher-paying symbols include five different fish, paying 15x-60x the bet. A shark acts as the Wild symbol, and a chest as the Scatter symbol. Treasure symbols can also land, but can only be collected during Respin Frenzy.
What is the max win in the slot Shark Frenzy?
You can win up to 7777x the bet.
What features are available in the slot Shark Frenzy?
The features are Wild Shark, Scatter Symbol, Respin Frenzy, Free Spins, and Fast Track Buys.
The Shark symbol is a Wild symbol that can substitute for all regular paying symbols. If it lands, you will also trigger the Respin Frenzy.
Landing 3, 4, or 5 Scatter symbols triggers 6, 8, or 10 Free Spins, respectively.
The Respin Frenzy is triggered by landing a Wild Shark. This activates a respin, where only Treasure symbols and Bonus symbols can land on the reels. The respinning will continue as long as a new symbol lands. After each respin, there is a chance the Shark will add additional Treasures to the grid. When you fail to land a new symbol, the respins end, and the Shark collects all visible Treasure symbols, which has a value of 1-500 times the bet.
During Free Spins, the Shark symbol lands a lot more often. There is also an overall respin multiplier that increases by one every extra respin during Respin Frenzy. This will multiply all the coins collected after a respin comes to an end. During the regular Free Spins, the multiplier is reset after each Respin Frenzy round.
The following feature buys are available for purchase:
15x: Guarantees a game round triggering Respin Frenzy.
100x: Guarantees a game round triggering the Free Spins bonus.
200x: Guarantees a game round triggering the Super Free Spins bonus, where the respin multiplier does not reset.
Slotmill doesn’t release game as often as many other providers, but we still consider them to be a top-tier provider. Their games are always of the highest quality, both visually and mechanically. Earlier this year, they released Chilli Bandits, which provided players with a unique environment and innovative features. Since then, we’ve been looking forward to the studios next release, and thankfully, Shark Frenzy did not disappoint.
The game’s visuals capture your attention with its crispiness and colors, which is the first step for any slot game. It doesn’t really matter how big potential or fun mechanics a game has, unless the frame is, at least, decent. But of course, after the audience’s attention has been captured, the gameplay has to prove its worth. In Shark Frenzy, it does. The game feels more like a medium volatility game rather than high, as there’s a lot going on with frequent features, etc. However, don’t let that fool you into thinking there’s no potential. The treasure values combined with the progressive multiplier can escalate quickly and net you some big wins.
Shark Frenzy by Slotmill is a beautiful slot game that takes place in the deepest depths of the ocean, where big wins are lurking behind every coral.
