Summertime is one of two games which Microgaming has created with this name, though here we have the simpler version, not the one which is part of the Mega Moolah series and its progressive jackpots - Mega Moolah Summertime. The game we’ve got here comes with 9 lines, it has 5 reels and as its major features it manages to put forward free games, a wild, a scatter and even some multipliers. The theme is the one that you might expect, based on the summer and on things like the Sun, but also on plenty of classic icons, mostly with fruits. It’s a slot which can apparently pay up to $50,000.
Betting and Prizes
The wagers that you can place in this game, will go up to $45, but no higher. Still, this is enough to get you to wager up to $5 for a single line, since this slot machine has only 9 lines total. You can have a maximum of 5 coins in a single wager, with coin denominations reaching $1.
Summertime slot can pay extremely well, with 50,000 coins being the biggest reward which is promised in it. You can get this because the slot returns the line bet 10,000 times to you, which will mean a prize of $50,000, and that’s just what awaits you in the base game.
Summertime Slot Features
That big payout, which I mentioned already, will arrive thanks to the Summertime logo, a symbol which behaves like a substitute for any other, though only if its location permits it. Payouts of 10x to 10,000x are on the line if the symbols align and form a combo just with their own wilds. In other situations, when wilds are forming other combos with regular icons, they will double the value of the wins.
The Scatter, a sign shown on a beach, will be used in just that kind of role, as a symbol that doesn’t matter where it makes its appearance. It only needs to land in up to five positions, and it will give you its reward, which will reach a value of up to 500 times the bet.
Besides that cash payout, you will be offered 15 free spins as well, where wins are all tripled. Hopefully, this applies to the top jackpot as well, which could get up to $150,000 this way. The 15 free spins can be activated once again, the requirement being the same 3+ symbols.
Theme & Design
I’m not exactly impressed with the look of Summertime, but it’s not a bad one either, which is what I expected when I found out that its theme relies on classic fruit symbols and on just 9 lines. It looks better than that though, with modern looking fruits and a couple of logos. There are also bells, chips, fire like 7s and diamonds among the symbols.
Summertime delivers some very good payouts, excellent features which include multipliers, and graphics which at least have the good sense not to stand in the way.
