For 9 glorious seasons (1989-1999), the beautiful and hunky lifeguards of Los Angeles County entertained TV audiences with their dramatic rescues and personal drama on the show “Baywatch.” The show’s two principle actors, Pamela Sue Anderson and David Hasselhoff, would go to become household names. Playtech introduced its Baywatch slot modeled after the beach life in So. Cal with the show’s popular actors playing key icons in game-play mode.
The Baywatch slot comes with 5 reels and 20 pay lines with the Pamela Sue Anderson character representing the game’s only wild symbol. This symbol comes stacked on reel 3 and substitutes for all other symbols except the scatter symbol (Baywatch lifeguard tower) and the “Rescue Feature” symbol. If the rescue feature symbol appears anywhere on reel 5, the player gets a bonus option of a re-spin or a matching game for cash.
If three scatter symbols show up anywhere on the reels, the player is awarded 12 free spins with stacked wilds representing three of the show’s main characters being provided on reel 3. Anytime reel three shows up filled by one of these characters during the free spins round, the player is rewarded with additional spins plus escalating multipliers.
