Baywatch is a Playtech poker machine based on the TV series that was popular in the 1990's. The game features several of the characters from the series including CJ Parker, Caroline Holden and Matt Brody.
Unfortunately the "Hoff" does not play a part on the game. Perhaps he is too busy doing episodes of Celebrity Apprentice or more likely Playtech just didn't want to pay his licensing fee.
To play all lines your have to bet a minimum of 20c and you can go right up to $1,000 per spin at some casinos. The max bet is 20 credits and you cannot bet additional credits on the lines, instead you move up credit levels to increase your bet.
Pamela Anderson's CJ Parker is the wild symbol and pays up to 3,000 credits if you manage to get five on a line. She appears in stacks on reels 2, 3 and 4 so you can win the jackpot on up to 5 lines for a 15,000 credit win.
A Rescue Feature symbol appearing anywhere on the last reels gives you the choice of two bonuses. These are either re-spins or a Lifeguard Rescue bonus. Pick the re-spin and you get 2, 3 or 4 extra wilds can be added to the screen.
The Lifeguard option is a match three to win style feature where you can win up to 10x your total bet. In our opinion the re-spins are the far better options as you can win a lot more.
Getting three or more of the Beach Hut scatters anywhere on the screen wins 12 free games with three Lifeguard features. The free games can also be re-triggered with three or more scatters adding another 12 spins
During the regular free games there are stacks of Lifeguard symbols on the middle reel. Get a stack of the same Lifeguard and you win the following features.
Caroline Holden Bonus
Get a stack of Caroline symbols and you get an extra 6 free spins with all wins tripled. During this feature the Matt and Neely symbols are removed from the reels and extra Caroline symbols are added.
Matt Brody Bonus
A stack of Matt Brody symbols wins 6 spins with Matt symbols as extra wilds. On the 1st, 4th and 6th spin a wild symbol is added to the screen and held for any remaining games.
Neely Capshaw Bonus
Trigger the Neely Capshaw feature and you get another 6 free spins where any Neely symbol on the spins adds a X1 multiplier to the starting X2 multiplier. At the end of the spins all wins are multiplied by the final total.
