Beach Life

5-Reel, 20-Line SlotProgressive Jackpot

5-Reel 20-Line Progressive Single Coin Slots

The objective of Beach Life online slot is to match symbols on the different paylines across the reels.

To Play the Game:

  • Begin by selecting the number of paylines. Do this by pressing the Bet Button on the bottom of screen or by selecting the number of lines you wish to play from the corresponding numbers on the sides of the reels. Each time you select the Bet Button it will increase the number of paylines by one, up to a maximum of 20 lines.
  • The Total Bet per spin is calculated by the Coin Size (Line Bet) x Number of lines.
  • When you have selected your paylines and bets, press Spin to spin the reels and start Beach Life online slot game. You can also choose Bet Max to spin the reels at the maximum number of lines for your chosen line bet.
  • When the reels come to rest, any winning combinations will be highlighted on the reels and credited to your balance. Information on all winning combinations and their values are displayed in the Paytable. This can be accessed by selecting the Paytable button from the bottom left of the screen. Multiple wins on different paylines are added together and displayed as a Total Win.


Paylines are the differently shaped lines that a winning combination must follow across the reels.  The different lines can be viewed by actively pressing the Bet button. There is also a set of graphics displaying the layout of the paylines on the Paytable screen.

Please Note: a winning symbol combination must be on an active payline. These must start on reel 1 and be in an unbroken chain of at least 3 symbols. Scatter Wins do not need to be on active paylines to pay. These will be discussed later in this text.

Please Note. For the purpose of this game there is a difference between the Line Bet and the Total Bet. The Line Bet is the amount bet on each payline. The Total Bet is the Line Bet multiplied by the Number of Lines.

About Payouts:

All payouts are listed on the Paytable. The payouts for Symbol Wins are multiplied by the Bet per Line. Only the highest win is paid on an active payline. In the case of multiple wins on different paylines, these will be added together and paid as a Total Win.

Wild Symbol:

  • The Wild Symbol can substitute for all other standard symbols to help form winning combinations.
  • The Wild Symbol does not substitute for the Bonus or Scatter Symbols.
  • A line of 2 or more Wild Symbols can have its own standalone value. This acts within the rules of a normal symbol win: must be from left to right, unbroken chain etc.

Progressive Jackpot:


Beach Life online slot features a Progressive Jackpot award. To win it, you must land 5 Wild Symbols on the 20th Payline, thus you must play all 20 paylines to be in with a chance of winning the Progressive Jackpot. If you match 5 Wild Symbols on any other payline you will be awarded 100000 x Line Bet.

The Progressive Jackpot is funded by a small percentage of each wager – from all players, over a period of time and playing Beach Life at different online casinos – being paid into the fund.

A base amount of 100000 x coin size is provided by the casino to ensure that the Progressive Jackpot will still be a large amount even if it was won twice in quick succession. This base amount is called the Seed.

Please Note: In some Progressive Jackpot slots you must make a specific bet to be eligible for the award. The eligibility requirements for Beach Life are listed in a table below.

Please Note: In the event of a disconnection in the middle of a spin, you will be returned to the same point in the game with all bets – including Progressive Jackpot – remaining the same when you continue your spin.

Please Note: if the jackpot is removed, for reasons such as the casino discontinuing the game, the casino is obliged to inform you of this fact.

Progressive Jackpot for Beach Life online slot:

Seed (the base amount provided by casino) – 100,000 x coin size.

Contribution rate (the amount of each player’s wager that funds the jackpot) – 3%.

Win Condition (how to win the jackpot) – land 5 Wild Symbols on the 20th Payline. This payline must be active.

Win Requirements (how to be eligible for jackpot) – play for Max Bet, i.e. play all 20 paylines.

Please Note: The Progressive Jackpot Level is displayed at the top of the game screen.

Scatter Symbol:

The Scatter Symbol – represented by the Beach Sandcastles – does not have to appear on a payline to be considered active. If you land two or more Scatter Symbols anywhere on the reels you will win a cash amount. The Wild Symbol does not substitute for the Scatter Symbol.

Please Note: the payouts for Scatter Wins are multiplied by the Total Bet. These payouts are displayed in the Paytable.

Bonus Symbol:

The Bonus Symbol – represented by the Treasure Chest – must land on a payline to be active. If you land 3 or more Bonus Symbols on an active payline:

  • You will be taken to a new screen.
  • The screen will display 12 Treasure Chests.
  • You will be given the same number of picks as the amount of Bonus Symbols that were matched in the triggering spin.
  • Each Treasure Chest you open will reveal a cash amount. These amounts are added together and paid as a Total.
  • When you have used all your picks, the other Treasure Chests will open to reveal what is inside them. The Bonus will end and you will return to the main reels.


The following buttons appear along the bottom of the game screen:

Paytable – select this to open up the Paytable screen, which gives information on payouts and displays a graphic of the paylines.

Bet – the Bet Button will let you adjust the number of lines played per spin.

Bet Max – activates the maximum number of paylines and spins the reels.

Spin – press to spin the reels and start the game.


As this is not a multi-player game you will not be able to chat with other players. However, a casino administrator from William Hill Casino may use the chat function to ask and respond to questions.

The bottom of the screen displays the casino tool bar. You can use the tool bar to view information and perform the following tasks:

Casino Balance

This displays the current credit available to you in your William Hill Casino account.


Select this to open up the Cashier and access banking facilities, which includes withdrawal and deposit options. You can also use the Cashier to view your casino transaction history.

Play for Real Money

This option will allow you to switch from Fun Mode or Offline Mode to play for real money. Choosing it will either take you to the Real Money login page, or take you to a page where you can sign up to a Real Money William Hill Casino account.


Selecting the Menu button allows you access the following options:

  • View your game history for the current session at the casino.
  • Options – will allow you to set the game’s audio and visual settings.
  • Help - will load this help text.

Online Support

Select this option to speak to a Casino Advisor about any issues you have when using the casino.


Select this button to close the current session and return to the casino lobby. If you are playing in a new window the function will be marked as Close. If you are playing in the same window as the lobby the function will allow you to switch to the Lobby.

Shortcut Keys

You can use shortcut keys on your computer keyboard instead of using your mouse cursor.

  • Tab – Allows you to move between and highlight buttons on screen.
  • Enter – Allows you to select the function for the button that is highlighted, i.e. acts like clicking on a button.
  • Spacebar – Spins the reels, i.e. starts a new game at the same bet as before.
  • Esc – Exits the game and brings you back to the William Hill Casino lobby.

Note on Disconnections:

The game software has been designed to remember the outcome of the last bet prior to any disconnections. Therefore, if you become disconnected during a spin or when playing a bonus feature, you will be able to return to that point in the game on re-establishing a connection.

Note on Large Wins:

Wins of over $10,000 (or the equivalent in other currencies) are considered to be Large Wins and must be verified by a casino administrator before being credited to your account and/or becoming available for withdrawal.

Note on Malfunctions: If there is a malfunction or error when playing Beach Life, all bets are void with the stake being returned to the player.


The Autoplay function allows you to set a series of spins consecutively at the same bet, meaning you can play the game without pressing the Spin Button for each round.

There are 2 Autoplay options, Simple and Advanced.

When using Simple Autoplay:

  • Select the Menu button.
  • Pick the number of Auto Spins you would like to play. When all the spins have been played the Autoplay will stop.
  • You can end the Autoplay at any time by selecting ‘Stop’.

To Access and Use Advanced Autoplay:

  • Select the double arrow on the left of the main Autoplay option to open up the advanced Autoplay menu.
  • You can set the Autoplay Feature to play through until a certain cash amount has been won on a single spin.
  • You can set the Autoplay to play through until a certain accumulative cash amount has been won across a series of spins. You can also let it play through until your casino balance has reached a certain level.
  • You can set the Autoplay to play through until a certain amount of loses have been made, i.e your casino balance reaches a certain amount.
  • You can set the Autoplay to play through until the Beach Life Progressive Jackpot has been awarded to you, or another player.

You can also use this Advanced Menu to speed up or slow down the delay between the spins.

During Autoplay the Spin button also acts as a pause button. Therefore to cease Autoplay you must press the Stop button rather than Spin. To change the Autoplay settings you must select Stop and go back into the Autoplay Menu.

Player Input:

The idea of Autoplay is that allows you to perform other tasks whilst playing an online slot. However, as there are points in the Beach Life slot that require your input, such as the Bonus Round, the Autoplay will pause in these circumstances and wait for you to act.

If you enjoy the thrills of online roulette, try Beach Life, you are bound to love it!
