Games developer Microgaming has taken on the arduous task of bringing chilly fishing to the reels with their Alaskan Fishing online slot. This slot features 243 ways to win over its five reels, which means standard paylines are not used here. You can win just by landing matching symbols in adjacent reels. Those reels are set underwater and on the surface, players can see a snow-capped mountain through a gap in the tree line.
Before you set foot in the Alaskan tundra, you should first regulate your bets. By clicking on "+/-" you will set coins size which ranges from 0.01 to 0.05, and "Coins" is used to set the number of coins per line that you wish to bet. "Max Bet" is used to set the maximum bet available. "Spin" will set the reels in motion, and "Autoplay" option is used to turn the reels without any pause for a pre-determined number of times.
Set in the Alaskan tundra, Alaskan Fishing is accompanied by a soundtrack that will put you in the mood to sit back and be as still as possible while you spin the reels, waiting for a bite. The graphics here are not at all eye-popping, but nevertheless, the symbols portray Bi-Planes, Fishing Boats, Eagles, Grizzly Bears that are enjoying a salmon, and of course, a variety of fish.
While the Fly Fishing Bonus and the Stacked Wilds land more often, the free spins are fairly challenging to come by in this slot. For any slot player who likes the 243 Ways to Win style, this is just as good as any other and is along with the same level as titles with identical formats.
While not especially graphically stimulating, all the animals are rendered well and this slot is pretty amusing to play. The background music is very relaxing until you land a win and then, it surprises you with its energy.
All the symbols are fishing-related and we have a baited hook, a reel, a fishing boat, a seaplane, an eagle and bear. In addition, there are two different types of fish and a trophy. The fishing tackle box triggers the free spins, the fisherman triggers the bonus game and the Alaskan Fishing logo is a stacked wild.
The Alaskan Fishing wild symbol is stacked in both the base game and the bonus game and this means the symbols will sit on top of each other, creating extra chances for winning combos.
Fly Fishing Bonus
You’ll need to land the fisherman on reels one and five to trigger this bonus game and then you’ll get to pick five posts in the river to fish. A random multiplier is then applied to the winning amount of between 2x and 15x.
This is where the big money can be had. To activate this round, you need to land three, four or five of the fishing tackle bonus symbols anywhere on the reels.
15 free spins are now yours for the taking and anything you win will be doubled during this feature. You can re-trigger more spins from this round and you can also trigger the Fly Fishing bonus from here.
