Is there a more chilled out vibe than that of the surfer? What better way is there to take it easy than to relax and take in this cool world than by playing Wipeout, a 5 reel, 10 payline game from Barcrest with all kinds of groovy features that will make you feel like hanging ten, dude! It's the only thing more rad than actually grabbing a board and trying to ride the waves!
Although this game might have a few years under its belt, while playing you will nevertheless feel as though you are on the beach hanging out with the surfer babes and dudes. The interface is very beach-like; it will transport you to the surfer heaven. It also probably comes as no surprise that the symbols are all surfing-related. The icons include a tsunami wave, a hippie van, a sun sticking its tongue out, a surfer dude, and the normal array of higher-scoring playing card symbols and numbers. If all of this is not enough to put you in surfing/chill-out mode, then perhaps the laid-back music will put you in the mood!
In terms of bonus features, Wipeout chooses to keep it pretty clean and simple. There are two bonuses of note - a scatter symbol and a wild icon. The latter substitutes all symbols aside from the scatter (the surfer dude) and does not serve as a win multiplier. Three, four or five free spin icons anywhere on the reels activates the - you guessed it - free spins bonus, during which the icons and payouts are modified to give you greater chances of winning.
While learning how to surf might seem like rocket science, figuring out how to play Wipeout is anything but. Adjust the number of paylines and the stake per line to make your initial bet. Once you have done this, click on the "spin" button to make the reels start spinning. From here, it's a matter of hoping for the best!
