SunTide is a Microgaming’s pokie that represents the mixture of two game formats: a classic 3-reel pokie and modern 5-reel solutions. SunTide has a familiar 5x3 system mixed with classic symbols like fruits, bars and diamonds, and this stylistic fusion will be highly appreciated by many, if not most, categories of players. The pokie has some up-to-date features including free spins, scatters and expanding wilds, all focused on enriching your gameplay with multiple winning opportunities. Most importantly, the game has a massive $25,000 jackpot that will surely get your attention.

This highly energetic five-reel pokie has three rows and nine adjustable paylines. The game takes you back in time to the era of one-armed bandits but at the same it has a bunch of new-age features that cannot be found in pokie machines of older days, in addition to entirely modern graphics. Thanks to this wonderful mix, you get an exciting pokie that offers the chance to grab big sums of money.
Most of its symbols are brightly colored ripe fruits that will tempt you with their delicious look. The fruits include (in ascending order of their winning values) cherries, strawberries, lemons, watermelons and oranges, all requiring a three-symbol match to pay out. The coin prizes produced by the mouth-watering fruit symbols range between x3 and x180.
Bars, bells, sevens and diamonds belong under the group of high-paying symbols as they generate payouts from x15 to x1000 for three to five of a kind.
SunTide is a perfect pokie for those who like low and medium-sized bets. By adjusting the number of coins (1–5), a coin denomination ($0.01–$0.50) and the number of lines, you can make a bet anywhere between $0.09 and $22.50 per spin. Clicking the Max Bet button sets all the bet options to their maximum values and this action does not make the reels spin automatically, in contrast to many other pokies.
A gold coin acts as wild symbol that completes winning combinations for all non-feature symbols. The wild can also form its own combos if two or more of them stop on an active payline left to right. Furthermore, the wild may come into view as a stacked image but this is true for the central reel only during the base game. However, in free spins the expanding wild has more benefits to be further described below. Five wild symbols landed on a line award the pokie’s highest jackpot of $25,000.
Scatter and free spins
Another awesome symbol is a scatter that shows a sea and palms at sunset. Unlike all basic symbols and a wild, scatters pay in any position when 2 or more of them appear. Hitting five scatters, you get up to $2250, depending on your bet size. Besides, 3+ Sunset symbols initiate 15 bonus free spins that can be retriggered from within themselves. During free spins, wilds can expand up and down on reels 2, 3 and 4, thus there’s the possibility of having the entire three reels covered entirely with wilds. The maximum possible win in the feature reaches an astonishing 150,000 coins!
The pokie is designed to fit the budgets of low-rollers. Due to its mixed classic and contemporary gaming model, it will be appealing to fans of both 3-reel and 5-reel titles.
