With 15 Paylines and five reels across three rows, Lucky Angler Slot is a NetEnt-powered slot you can win both ways. This nicely balanced, medium-variance game is a graphically stunning affair set underwater in a frozen body of water, with fish swimming away behind the reels and the sun shining down in the base game.
You’ll find a great free spins feature here, alongside a Scatter, sticky Wilds, the chance to reel in a whopper of a jackpot, and a lot more besides! Expect some suitably watery sounds to accompany the game.
How to play
Coin sizes in Lucky Angler Slot range from a penny to 50p; in all, there are five different coin values. You can also set up to a thousand automatic spins.
Play from as little as 30p a pop, or for up to £150 a spin, so you can enjoy whatever your budget. This flexibility extends to the game being playable on PCs as well as tablets and other mobile devices. The good news is that you get to win both ways, i.e. the game pays out both from left to right and vice versa, as long as you have three matching icons in a row.
Set your bet before you begin fishing in the frozen lake and before matching symbols to make your way to the surface. What lies beneath could include an old boot, golden fish hook, lobster and animated fishies – if you can handle the sub-zero conditions! You’ll also find Arctic animals, letters and numbers.
A sticky Wild in the base game displays on Reels 2 and 4, where the sticky Wild is part of a winning combo. (Sticky Wilds are similar to standard wilds, although they stay on the screen for the following and subsequent spins, and it’s more usual to find them in bonus rounds rather than base play. They are your best friend here.)
You’ll see the fish as it’s hooked then reeled in to become a frozen ice cube. It stays that way (i.e. sticky) for as long as you keep landing wins.
Lucky Angler Slot Bonus rounds
This is typically where you can enjoy the bigger wins in Lucky Angler Slot. It triggers when you land at least three of the Scatter (fish) symbols.
Three Scatters gives the player 10 free spins, four gives them 15 free spins and five gives a total of 20 free spins. You can trigger extra free spins during the feature, and these are added to the total number of free spins.
The sticky Wild feature applies during this round, only this time in Reels 2 through 4. But you also get a free sticky Wild that stays on Reel 3 during your free spins.
There’s also a change in atmosphere since this round takes place by moonlight.
Return to Player (RTP)
At 96.4%, RTP hovers around the average, or even very slightly above, so we’ve definitely seen worse.
Try it for free before you play for reel (pun intended!) money. But we reckon chilling out (quite literally) has never been this much fun.
Lucky Angler Slot is colourful and imaginative, with smooth gameplay. Add in user-friendly controls, with all betting information clearly displayed and you can see why it’s one of NetEnt’s most popular offerings.
