Shark Meet Slot Game

Play for Free

There are lots of dangerous creatures lurking beneath the waves, and the premise of Shark Meet–a four-reel, 16-payline slot machine—is that these aquatic menaces occasionally get together to make a competition out of devouring humans. It’s certainly an odd theme for a virtual slot, but I’ve come to expect the unusual from the designers at Booming Games.


Price to Play

Shark Meet has 16 paylines, and all of them must be activated during the game. If opting for real money play, the denominations include 0.03, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20, 0.50, 0.75, 1.00, 1.50, 2.00, and 3.00.

If you’re looking to play the game for as little as possible, the 0.03 per line wager results in a total cost of 0.48. For those who are feeling lucky, the highest possible wager is 48.00.

These betting options make the game ideal of low to medium level players. If you’re a high roller, you’ll probably want to seek out a more expensive title for your next session.


Shark Meet Paylines

Whether you’re a veteran gambler or a novice, it helps to understand what’s going on with a slot machine before playing it. This is where the pay table comes in handy, as it presents a detailed rundown of the symbols, their cash values, and any bonus features that might be available. Before you commit money to a slot, always take a look at these screens.

The pay table changes to reflect the player’s wager, so the numbers you see won’t always be the same. In the following examples, however, I’ve wagered 0.20 on each line, for a total bet of 3.20 per spin.

  • Silver Starfish – Pays 0.40 for three matches and 1.60 for four.
  • Gold Starfish – Pays 0.60 for three matches and 2.40 for four.
  • Pufferfish – Pays 2.00 for three matches and 10.00 for four.
  • Jellyfish – Pays 3.00 for three matches and 15.00 for four.
  • Bucket of Champagne – Pays 4.00 for three matches and 30.00 for four.
  • Hammerhead Shark – Pays 16.00 for three matches and 32.00 for four. This is the game’s scatter symbol, so it can create payouts without having to be in order on the lines. When three or more appear on the reels, the free spins bonus is activated.
  • Trophy with Severed Foot – Pays 6.00 for three matches and 50.00 for four.
  • Toothy Shark – The most valuable symbol available, it’s represented by a smiling shark with rows of intimidating teeth. Pays 100.00 for three matches and 2000.00 for four. This is also the game’s wild symbol, so it substitutes for all other icons except the scatter.

4-Way Pay

This feature is always active, so there’s no need to worry about triggering it. In order to receive a payout, you’ll need to get identical matching symbols on any of the screen’s four side. Lines 1 through 4 pay left to right, while lines 5 through 8 pay right to left. Lines 9 through 12 run downwards, while 13 through 16 pay upwards.


Multiplying Paylines

In addition to paying in different directions, paylines also have a variety of multiplying values. These include the following:

  • Lines 1 through 4 = x1 multiplier
  • Lines 5 through 8 = x2 multiplier
  • Lines 9 through 12 = x3 multiplier
  • Lines 13 through 16 = x4 multiplier

I especially enjoy this feature of the game, as it allows players to multiply their winnings without taking any additional action. I’m sure other elements of the game are meant to compensate for this, but it’s still worth seeking out.


Free Spins Bonus

Hitting three or more scatters awards the player with 10 free spins and initiates the most common of all slot machine bonus features. These complimentary games can be re-triggered, and this is accomplished by getting yet another combination of scatter symbols on the reels.


Gamble Option

When you get a winning payline, you’ll have the opportunity to double your money by choosing the gamble option (a common feature on many titles from Booming Games). In order to do so, just click on the “Gamble” button located on the lower right of the main screen.

The gamble screen presents three jellyfish. The one on the left is colored lime green, while the one on the right is a combination of purple and red. Your objective is to pick one of these and hope that the center jellyfish transforms into your selection.

If you choose correctly, your current win is instantly doubled. Otherwise, you forfeit your current win before being returned to the base game. Lucky players can choose to gamble their money up to 10 times in a row, or until their winnings total 10,000.00.


Conclusion

For players on a budget, the Shark Meet slot game from Booming Games is an excellent option. The four-reel design might be viewed as a negative for some, but there are more than enough features to compensate for that. My favorites include the four-way pay and multiplying paylines, as they increase overall winnings without requiring any additional action on the part of the customer.
