Playable from $0.10 per spin, the 2017 release features a 5×5 layout, while the 27 fixed paylines that pay both ways provide lots and lots of opportunities for punters to land hefty payouts. The Yggdrasil product is visually impressive, and houses crisp and colourful graphics and a joyful soundtrack that will make your time on this fabulous beach even more enjoyable.

The name Sunny Shores describes the slot perfectly, and you will have the impression you are spinning the reels in a real tropical paradise. Even though there are no standard additional features, like Free Spins, gamers can benefit from expanding Sunny Wilds and free re-spins, which carry plenty of chances for amazing payouts.

Game Symbols

We are positive that the symbols used in the Yggdrasil title will make your mouth water, since they represent a perfect combination of tasty fruits everybody love. First of all, there will be lots of Oranges, Strawberries, Bananas, Grapes, Watermelons and Pears. Since we are located on a sunny beach, than it is no surprise that a Pearl is used as the symbol that pays the most, so we would recommend to all gamers to go on a Pearl hunt for maximum payouts.

There are no Scatters, only expanding Wilds, represented by the Sun, a symbol that substitutes for all other symbols and triggers free re-spins.


Sunny Shores features a 5×5 grid and offers 27 fixed paylines, which pay both from left to right and vice versa. It means that gamers need to land at least three matching symbols on a payline starting from the leftmost or the rightmost reel to win a payout. The number of coins you can place per bet is fixed at 25, but gamers can alter the coin value, going from $0.004 to $5. The minimum punters can wager is $0.10, while the maximum possible bet is set at $125. Such a wide betting range will definitely attract both penny punters and high rollers.

Once you chose the bet that is most appropriate to your bankroll, you are ready to hit the Spin button. If you are one of those spinners who don’t have to worry about the size of the bet, simply press the Max Bet button. For players who like to sit back and enjoy the show, Autoplay offers an infinite number of automatic spins.

Bonus Features

Since there are no standard additional features like Free Spins, or other Bonus games, we advise you to look for the expanding Sunny Wilds that will warm your hearts every time they appear on the reels. The Sunny Wild will always expand in at least two opposite directions. It can expand vertically, diagonally and horizontally, and the expansion can be one or two Wilds in each direction. The most you can get from one expanding Wild is a total of sixteen Wilds at once.

After the expansion has occurred, the Sunny Wild will trigger a Sunny Wild Respin feature, while remaining locked on the position during the free re-spin. If Lady Luck is on your side, you will land another Sunny Wild during the re-spin, which means that you get an additional free re-spin. This can happen more than once, so, as long as you are landing Sunny Wilds, expect a free re-spin in return.


Power Plant is a low variance slot with a RTP of 96.2%. For big payouts, try to land as many Pearls as you can, since fie of them on a payline will get you 300 coins, or up to $1,500 if you set the coin denomination to the max. The Orange is also quite generous, offering 200 coins for the maximum combination, while the Strawberry rewards punters with 150 coins for five of a kind.


Since the good people of Yggdrasil are standing behind the Sunny Shores video slot, we will not waste your time praising the exceptional visuals, because almost all Yggdrasil products boast topnotch graphics and animations. Due to the fact that the 2017 release pays both ways, the winning combinations are landed more easily. The biggest downside of the slot is that there are no additional features, and we like our slots packed with action. Nevertheless, the expanding Sunny Wild and free re-spin can provide players with lots of excitement and, what is more important, with plenty of lucrative payouts. This can prove to be a perfect summer slot, since it offers a relaxing gameplay with no complicated bonus features, which is all you need when chilling on a sunny beach.
