Summer Vibes Accumul8 Slot Review 2022
Pull out a sun lounger, feel the sun on your skin and enjoy the view in Light & Wonder’s hottest new release, Summer Vibes Accumul8!
Summer-themed slots are coming out the of woodwork thick and fast at the moment which makes sense given the change in seasons, so it comes as no surprise that Light & Wonder has followed the crowd with Summer Vibes Accumul8. When we think of summer slots we’re instantly drawn to Quickspin’s Spinions Beach Party but you may prefer new titles like Blender Blitz and Tropical Bonanza, but will Summer Vibes Accumul8 fit in with these titles?
Summer Vibes Accumul8 brings forward a new and exciting Accumul8 mechanic that awards players with with wins if 8 matching symbols appear without needing to be connected. Sun Scatters trigger the Free Spins round with up to 20 Free Spins available and Beachball Multipliers offer plenty of potential, up to x250! Now if this doesn’t float your boat then maybe the Bonus Buy option will do the trick (or not if you’re in the UK), still there’s something for everyone.
Although the Accumul8 mechanic is similar to Sweet Bonanza, will Summer Vibes Accumul8 be as successful? Let’s play on and find out!
Summer Vibes Accumul8 Base Game and Features
Summer Vibes Accumul8 is a 6×5 Video Slot with Accumul8 ways to win. In order to form a winning combination, you will need to land 8 or more of the same symbol types in any non-adjacent positions on the grid. The minimum bet available here is £/€0.20 per spin and the maximum bet available is £/€10 per spin, with a small choice of bets in between the two.
Summer Vibes Accumul8 features Cascading Reels. Each time a winning combination is formed, all winning symbols will be removed from the grid and new symbols will fall down via a Cascade. Once a cascade occurs, there is a chance of creating even more winning combinations.
In terms of symbols, the highest paying symbol in Summer Vibes Accumul8 is the Bucket, followed by the Hat, Shorts and Flippers. Low-paying symbols fall to 5 individual Ice Lollies. The Brown Ice Lolly has the highest pay value, followed by the Red, Purple, Green and Blue Ice Lollies. There is no Wild symbol present in Summer Vibes Accumul8.
There is nothing exciting to report in terms of features given that Summer Vibes Accumul8 doesn’t have any. This is slightly disappointing but all is forgotten once you access the Free Spins round which more than makes up for the lack of Features.
Summer Vibes Accumul8 Free Spins
Landing 3, 4 or 5 Sun Scatters in any position on the reels triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 10, 15 and 20 Free Spins respectively.
During the Free Spins round, Multipliers in the form of Beach Balls will come into play which opens up a whole new window of potential. More on these below.
From time to time Beach Balls with a random Multiplier between x2 and x250 can apear on the grid.
Each time a Multiplier symbol lands in view, it will remain on the grid until no further Cascades occur. At the end of a Cascade, the Multiplier value will be applied to the total win for that particular spin. If more than one Multiplier is present on the grid, both Multiplier values will be added together and applied to all wins for that particular spin.
Landing 2, 3, 4 or 5 Sun Scatters during the Free Spins round, awards an additional +3, +5, +10 and +15 Free Spins respectively.
Summer Vibes Accumul8 Bonus Buy
For those outside the UK, you may benefit from a Bonus Buy option. The Bonus Buy grants you access to the Free Spins round where you will be awarded 10, 15 or 20 Free Spins.
The Free Spins round can be purchased for a very generous 75x your current bet.
Summer Vibes Accumul8: Our Verdict
Summber Vibes gives you all of those sweet, summer vibes that we all yearn for in the summer months. Sadly, we can’t all jet away to paradise considering the state of our airpots, but Summber Vibes will do nicely as a substitute.
Light & Wonder has done a fine job of curating a perfectly serene summers evening, but let’s put down those cocktails for just a second to talk about gameplay. The Base Game of Summer Vibes can feel a little bit slow and calm at times, not unlike a sunset on sunny beach, but in Free Spins the party starts with multipliers that gives Summer Vibes significant potential.
More than one multiplier is what you’re looking for in Summer Vibes, and if the conditions are right then you’ll spring from the deck chair in celebration of what could well ba a nice win.
Light & Wonder are a very diverse developer; among their portfolio sits many an interesting title like Invader Megaways, Spartacus Megaways and of course, Cluedo and Monopoly favourites. Yet, every now and then even they might stray away from the trusty originals in favour of a little vacation.
Overall, Summer Vibes probably won’t live on as the biggest smash hit to ever grace the world of slots, but significant potential and a feel-good factor makes it both enjoyable and dependable.
