Baywatch has been one of the most favorite choices of the players among the 135+ video slots. With favorite TV stars like C.J, Hobby, Caroline, etc. saving lives, the max win comes a humongous one of 9,99,99,99,999 which is a summation of all transactional and bonus wins. Thankfully, this is one of the IGT slots with a moderately high RTP of 96.25%. Along with medium volatility, the game could help in achieving higher payouts. Moreover, the game is donned with bonus features, some of which include tidal wins, free spins, teamwork feature, symbol replacement feature, etc. that brings payouts. This is comparable to other popular slots such as Wolf Run, offering bonus wins till 50,000x. The betting range between $2-$3,000 is quite daunting and suits high-rollers. The betting range lies between 15 fixed paylines and 25 coins. However, the top win of the game is something to be on the lookout for. Some of our earlier reviewed slots like Wild Life, and She’s A Rich Girl, although offer high payouts of $250,000, are nowhere near Baywatch's max win.
Players can use the Baywatch demo mode before indulging in real money.
