Net Entertainment developed, and has recently introduced Lucky Angler to their large list of online slot games they’ve already released. This icy-cold online slot game has 5 reels and 15 paylines from which to make up some rewarding winning combinations. You can expect a wild symbol, a scatter and a free spins bonus feature. And if you’re lucky enough to strike it big you can also expect a maximum jackpot of 20 000 coins.
A Fishermans Dream
As you enter the slot, and as you’ve gathered from the name of the game, you will be hit with strong fishing-styled theme. Along the edges you will see some cracked ice, and at the top of the screen you’ll see what look like a small town along the iced lakes banks. Almost everything on the screen is in some shade of blue; the only additional colours can be seen amongst the different symbols. The symbols that you can expect to see are the red perch fish, an orange catfish, a blue bass, a green crayfish, and a brown boot. The other symbols include 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace that look as if they’re all coated in a thick layer of ice.
The sound effects are perfectly suited to the theme with what sounds like under water air bubbles escaping to the surface. With every winning combination that’s landed on there’s a 2 second hype that plays to commemorate the win.
How to Play Lucky Angler
The first thing you’ll need to do is select you betting size. The betting range is between 0.01 – 0.50 per payline with a maximum of 10 coins per payline. Once that’s done you can click on the big round spin button to set the reels in motion.
If you’re new to the game and don’t want to play for real money until you have tested the proverbial waters so to speak then you can choose the demo or free play version which will give you time to familiarise yourself with the setup like many players choose this option before playing online pokies real money NZ.
Most online slot machine games tally winning combinations from left to right; Lucky Angler though allows winning combinations from both ways. You will need to match a minimum of 3 of the same symbol sin order to strike a win. If you match a maximum of 5 that’s when you’ll get paid out the highest payouts per symbol.
The red perch fish pays out the most at 2 000 coins, the orange catfish pays out 1 500 coins and so the symbols decrease in value as you go down the list. There is pay table available for you to click on to familiarise yourself with the payout schedule if need be.
A Sticky Wild, a Scatter Symbol and Free Spins
The gold fishing lure is the wild symbol. It can substitute for any symbol on reels 2 and 4 to help make winning combinations. The only symbol it cannot substitute is the scatter symbol.
The scatter symbol is the barracuda fish; you will need 3 of these symbols anywhere on the reels to activate the free spin bonus feature.
If you end up with 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols then you will win 10, 15 or 20 free spins respectively. During the free spins the wild fishing lure wild can land on reels 2, 3 and 4. It’s considered to be a sticky wild and will literally stick on the reels it lands on to increase winnings throughout the free spins.
