Shark School slot was released in 2014 by developer RTG. It’s a 5 reel slot with 50 paylines and stakes go from 0.01 coins with just one payline activated up to 250 coins of your chosen currency with the max bet and all paylines in play. The exact variance is unknown but thought to be around 95% with a medium volatility. To find out whether or not we recommend taking Shark School for a few real money spins or not please read on for our full review and look at the stats and pros and cons of this casino slots game.
Overall Review and Ratings
- Sound Effects
- Value For Money
We like the Shark School slots game mainly for the variety in the bonus rounds which keeps things interesting. The graphics don’t really compare to modern day slot games but they are decent enough and the sound effects and music are also on par for a slot machine released in this time. You’ll likely find that you get a brief period of play on this slot but it’s not so likely to become one of your favourites.
- 3 Different Bonus Round Games
- Grouped Wilds
- Uniquely Themed
- No Progressive Jackpots
- Graphics Can’t Compete With Modern Day Slots

Graphics and Sound
The graphics consist of fun, cartoon drawings of various sharks and sealife dressed in US High School attire with some blocky looking playing card symbols like you might find in an 80s computer game. Shark School is set on an underwater background with bubbles floating to the surface on either side.
The sharks species on the symbols include a Great White shark with a waistcoat and silver neck chain, a hammerhead shark dressed in gym gear lifting a dumbbell, a Great White with a High School type waistcoat/sweater and a pointed nosed shark with a cap on. The other symbols include 4 different types of non shark fish and your usual 9, 10, J, Q, K and Ace playing cards. The Wild symbol is an octopus with a scholars cap on and the Scatter is the School Building.
Sound effects are pretty standard for an RTG game and you’ll hear the obligatory cranking of reels as you click the spin button. The music also has an 80s teen movie type feel to it, though perhaps it doesn’t maybe it’s just me that’s thinking that!
Bonus Round and Free Spins
The bonus round is triggered by landing 3 or more scatter symbols. Here you get a Pick Feature where you click on one of the Scatter symbols to reveal just which bonus games you’ll get to play. These include the following:
Swim Fishy, Swim: Here you try to help a little fish escape being eaten by a shark. Each time it avoids being eaten you get a free spins. If you manage to go 25 free games without the little fish being eaten you’ll get a 200x bonus of your initial bet.
Bad Sharky: This produces one Wild reel on the slot and at the end of each spins Bad Sharky will swim along and attempt to eat any fish symbols. If he successfully eats them then they also turn into Wild symbols. You’ll get between 3 and 10 spins.
Don’t Eat The Teacher: This starts with a 2x multiplier and increases with each free spin. To keep the free spins coming the teacher symbol must not be eaten by a shark symbol on the same line. If you can go 25 spins you’ll also get a bonus of 100x your bet.
The Wild symbols are grouped together on reel one only. This can certainly help you land some decent wins but we didn’t feel like they landed in quite as much as we would have expected.
