We all know the story of Jaws, which was really the first summer blockbuster movie ever released. This slot game seems to be inspired by that story, and while it is quite fun in its appearance, with cartoon bathers trying to have fun and dodge the shark, you’ll no doubt be looking out for the beast as much as they are.
Wager Gaming came up with this idea, and we have to say we don’t recall seeing another slot with a similar theme before, which is pretty surprising.
What’s the story with reels and paylines?
You get 25 lines to play on with this slot, and the number of reels is the same as you might expect – five of them.
What can you bet on this slot?
You can only play a single coin per line here, but that shouldn’t cause you many problems. The value of that coin can be altered from one cent to as high as ten dollars.
Does Shark have more valuable symbols in play?
Yes, and you might guess one of these symbols is a shark. It looks quite menacing but it’s a cartoon, so there is a limit to the terror it can make you feel! Five of these brings in the top prize of 4,000 coins if they appear on a single line. It is also the wild – as you might guess – which means one shark can help you make up other winning combinations.
The shark’s fin sticking out of the water is the scatter. Two or more trigger a prize, and three or more trigger some free games.
Can you play a bonus round?
The free games number 10 in total, and any prize won here is doubled. You do have a chance to retrigger the free games by finding another three or more shark fins as you play.

There is a nice mix of symbols in this game. While they have resorted to the rather uninspiring K, Q and A-style symbols, you will also see more relevant symbols relating to the theme. These include a bather in a rubber ring, a surfboard with a bite taken out of it and a no swimming sign.
Watch out for these and you could bag a few prizes. And remember, in this game, it’s actually good news to see a few sharks! Good luck… and stay out of the water….
