Beach Life Progressive Slot From Playtech


Beach Life was the first big progressive jackpot from Playtech. It drew high traffic at online casinos like Omni Casino and Mansion Casino. The traffic has slowed down a bit with the advent of other big Playtech progressive jackpots like Jackpot Giant and Gladiator Jackpot, but the Beach Life statistics are still amazing.

The average payout on this progressive slot game has been just over $3 million. Jackpot Giant averages over $6 million, but that is through a solitary hit. The best average below Beach Life is about $1.7 million for Funky Fruits and Spamalot. The biggest hit on Beach Life has been a whopping $8.2 million. The average time between hits is six months. The progressive jackpot resets at $50,000. Traffic is low initially but it picks up once the progressive jackpot ticker approaches the million dollar mark.

The beach theme is extremely popular. Beach Life uses bold and colourful symbols that are evocative of beach activities. The high paying symbols are snorkeler, lady getting a tan and surfer. Instead of the usual playing card icons, Playtech uses different mouth-watering ice creams for the low paying symbols. The line payouts are on the lower side compared to regular online slots because of the progressive jackpot payout. Beach Life has three special symbols. The sand castle is the scatter symbol that awards payouts multiplied by the total bet. The treasure chest is the bonus symbol. Three or more bonus symbols on any active payline trigger the bonus game on the second screen. You have to select a number of treasure chests from the 12 displayed on the ocean bed. Each selection awards a bonus.

The most important symbol in Beach Life is the sun. It is depicted with a pair of shades on, as if it is getting blinded by its own light. The sun is the wild symbol and it also awards the top line payouts. The jackpot payouts are hit when you land five sun symbols on an active payline. If you land them on the 1st to the 19th paylines then you win 100,000 times the line bet. In order to win the progressive jackpot you need five suns on the 20th payline. Remember, you need to activate all 20 paylines if you want to be eligible for the progressive jackpot. In Beach Life you wager one coin per payline of fixed $0.50 denomination. So you need to bet $10 for the progressive jackpot.
