NextGen Gaming isn't a name you hear a lot, but if they continue to release titles like the Shaaark! slots, then that ought to change pretty fast. The Shaaark! slot machine seems pretty unassuming with its five reels and 20 paylines, but a few spins on the Shaaark! online slots is all it takes to see the game's well above average.
Players can enjoy the Shaaark! slot machine for as little as a penny per credit, making the game's entertainment value that much more impressive. We like what symbols the game does use, but having five filler symbols set beside only seven themed symbols does make it seem like the designers phoned that section in a little. The Shaaark! slots' top prize of 4000 coins for five shark wilds is pretty good, and while there aren't a lot of other big pays, the paytable overall is pretty generous.
Shaaark! is a slot game that is played on a 5-reel screen that shows three rows of symbols. Payouts are granted for matching combinations that start from the first reel on the left and continue on adjacent positions to the right. Wild symbols, shown by the dangerous shark, can substitute for any needed regular symbol. The free games have doubled wins and the shark symbol can bite other symbols to turn them wild.
Before jumping into the action, the bet size must be set to match each player's requirements. This has a wide range since it is the result of the number of active lines (up to 20) and the size of the bet per line. Pressing 'Spin' will place the bet and start a round.
Apart from the shark wild, the Shaaark! online slots also offer a shark fin scatter that appears frequently. Two or more of such symbols pays a bet multiplier, but three or more will get you into the free spin feature. All of the Shaaark! slots casinos award 10 free spins at 2x with a fun random shark feature. During the spins, a shark circles and randomly bites, turning symbols into wilds. Unfortunately, these random wilds can be very hit or miss as far as value, but it's nice that the feature can be retriggered on a free spin.
The Shaaark! slot machine animations are fun and funny, and the sound effects are too, and it's the game's clever touch that will ultimately lure us back for another session. Some Shaaark! slots casinos also offer the SuperBet feature which introduces more wilds for an extra bet.
Play at a Shaaark! slots online casino like Silver Dollar Casino, and you might also be able to enjoy the game in a slot tournament format. Overall the Shaaark! online slots are very likeable with little room for improvement. That's why we rate the Shaaark! slot machine 9.25 out of 10.
Although 'Shaaark!' doesn’t have a jackpot, it has a strong bite with the top combination payout being worth 4,000 coins for five wilds on a line.
