A Festival of Colour and Light

If you like your online slot games to be a riot of colour, you’ll fall in love with Beach Life from Playtech. If you want to imagine yourself lying on a beach, soaking up the sun, slathering on sun lotion, and enjoying an ice cream or ice-cold cocktail, this 5-reel slot game has all the atmosphere you need. Play to win the progressive jackpot and the beach life could be yours permanently.

Beach Life

The Playground

 As you might expect, the playing screen features all aspects of beach life. The sand is golden, the sea is blue, and it all comes complete with swaying palm trees and sun umbrellas. All the player controls are along the bottoms of the screen. The paytable is on a hidden screen. The very enticing progressive jackpot clicks over in the top left-hand corner.

Play for Free

It’s always a good idea to try a new game in free/demonstration mode before making a deposit at a casino or bingo site. This is the opportunity to learn the game controls, see how the game plays out, and see the various winning combinations. It’s also good to try out a 5-reel game if you have only ever played 3-reel games or online poker games such as 2 Ways Royal.


Beach Life is a 5-reel slot game with 20 paylines. Symbols all have a beach theme with various ice lollies, various ice creams, a surfer, a scuba diver, a girl sunbathing, a treasure chest, sandcastle, and a sun wearing sunglasses; everything guaranteed to make you smile especially when they turn up in a winning combination.  

Of the basic symbols, the surfer, the sunbathing woman, and the scuba diver appear less frequently but have higher rewards in a winning spin.

The value of the bet cannot be adjusted and unlike other slot games with multiple paylines, the number of lines in play is fixed. Because of the fixed nature of the wagering, every player should understand the value of their wager. This is not a cheap slot game! The lure is there with the progressive jackpot but also, because of the hefty wager, the frequency of winning games is very good. There is also a good frequency of bonus games.

Bonus Games and Features

The sandcastle symbol acts as a scatter. When two or more sandcastles show up anywhere on the reels, cash wins are triggered, increasing with the greater number of sandcastles appearing.

The sun symbol is a wild card that substitutes as any other basic symbol (i.e. any but the sandcastle or treasure chest).  Combinations with the sun are the most valuable in Beach Life.

The third bonus is the sunken chest bonus, which is a “pick me” type bonus game. When the treasure chests are lined up in a combination to trigger the bonus, you get to choose from a selection of chests to reveal the treasure they contain – i.e. a cash prize. The number of picks you receive depends on how many sunken chests you land.

The Progressive Jackpot

The progressive jackpot builds as the game is played by anyone, anywhere, in any online casino. There is only one way to win the jackpot and that is to land five suns on the 20th payline. As you might imagine, this is a very elusive combination, but it can be done. The jackpot has been known to reach in excess of 8 million dollars (and the equivalent in pounds sterling and euros).

Beach Life is easy to play, and returns are decent considering the fixed nature of the wager and paylines. If you love the thrill of the chase, the progressive jackpot is an exciting prize.
