Lucky Angler: A Snowy Catch Online Slot Review
Progressive Jackpot: No
As the title suggests, this slot game has to do with fish. It is set in an underwater scene, beneath a frozen lake. You’ll be sure to appreciate the interactive backdrop, which shows fish swimming underwater and the sun’s rays shining from above. And when you spin the reels, you’ll hear the sound of water flowing and bubbles popping. These background sounds definitely help draw you into the underwater scene.
The game has 5 reels, 3 rows, and 15 paylines, and is playable on both desktop and mobile devices. But perhaps the best thing about this slot is that it allows you to land winning combinations from both directions. With most slots, you can only land winning combinations from left to right, but in this case, you could also win from right to left.
Gameplay begins with setting your bets. Set you preferred coin size by clicking on the Coin Value tabs, and the number of coins to bet per spin by clicking on the Level tabs. To bet the maximum allowable amount, click on Max Bet. Set the reels into motion by clicking the Spin button in the middle of the control panel. For a chosen number of uninterrupted spins, click on Autoplay.
The game’s low-value symbols are the usual playing card symbols A, J, K, Q, and 10, but they are designed like they were carved from blocks of ice. High-value symbols are all theme-related, including a lobster, a red fish, a catfish, a blue fish, and a boot with the eyes of a sea creature peeking out.
The game also has a Wild symbol, which depicts a golden artificial lure in the form of a small fish, with the word “wild” printed across the bottom. This symbol can substitute for the other symbols in the game, with the exception of the Scatter symbol. The game’s Scatter symbol is a school of fish with the word “scatter” emblazoned across the bottom.
One of the most interesting bonus features of this game has to do with the Wild symbol. If you land a winning combination with the Wild symbol included, it will become a sticky Wild, freezing in place and staying there for as long as you keep landing winning combinations.
Another bonus feature is the Free Spins feature, which gets activated when you land at least three Scatter symbols on the reels, giving you 10 free spins. If you land four Scatter symbols, you get 15 free spins, and if you land 5 Scatter symbols, you get 20 free spins. You also get an automatic sticky Wild in the middle of the 3rd reel, which remains frozen in place for all of your free spins.
Even better news is that you still get a chance to land sticky Wilds during the free spins. And unlike the base game wherein Wilds only appear on the 2nd and 4th reels, the sticky Wilds can appear on reels 2, 3, and 4 during the free spins. Additionally, you can re-trigger the Free Spins feature by landing more Scatter symbols on any of your free spins.
