Shifting Seas Features

Every win and every Boost shift causes the rightmost reel to disappear, and a new reel will appear on the left side of the reel set. Symbols part of wins are removed, other symbols fall, and new symbols drop from above to fill any empty spaces. All symbols in the reel that was previously located in the leftmost position will be copied into this new reel.

When a special wild symbol is either part of a pay way or pushed out of the game area, the corresponding special wild feature is activated. These are;

Symbol Rush Feature – Randomly transforms 4 – 8 symbols on any reel into identical new symbols.

Wild Surge Feature – Randomly transforms 1-3 symbols on any reel into wild symbols.

If a shift win pushes out the bonus symbol, it will trigger the Bonus Game. Awarding 8 Free Spins, this feature starts when the Shift Win feature ends. During spins, if a Shift Win pushes out the bonus symbol, it awards 4 extra Free Spins. The Wild Reel feature can also appear on any reel, initially appearing on the first reel after a Shift Win. The Wild Reel will move one position to the right. This reel follows the movement of the reels and carries a multiplier starting at 1x. If a Shift Win pushes out, the wild reel feature is reappears on the leftmost reel. Upgrading the multiplier of the wild reel by 1x and awards an additional spin.


Overall, I think this slot is a well made release by the studio and includes some new fun mechanics. This includes a max win capped at 15,000x and a Free Spins feature with moving reels. Be sure to try out the game for yourself on release and check out our exclusive casino offers.
