The Wombat says: Fishing. Not a sport this Wombat is acquainted with, what with me a being a vegetarian and all that. And I’ve never been to Alaska either. You’re more likely to see me swinging my bat on Cricket Star slot machine – another excellent slot, I might add.
For those you who like the ‘catch of the day’, or simply enjoy travel to freezing cold and far off lands, then Alaskan Fishing slot might just float your (fishing) boat. If not, you can always try Playboy slot game – it’s an altogether racier affair.
I asked my cousin (who’s a keen angler) how playing slots compares to a day spent at one with nature – with nothing but a rod and a box of tackle for company. His answer: ‘Spinning the reels is just as exciting as reeling in a whopper – just a bit less wet’.
So now we know.
But back to the game. Will Alaskan Fishing slot have enough play to ‘hook’ you in? Or will you it let you down like an old boot on the end of a cast off? Let’s spin the reels and find out.
Alaskan Fishing Slot Game Play
Alaskan Fishing slot is from Microgaming (of Win Sum Dim Sum fame), it comes with 5 reels and ‘243 Ways to Win’.
‘243 Ways to Win, what’s all that about?’ I hear you ask. Well, Wombat Fans, it’s pretty simple; land a combo of 3x or more matching symbols on consecutive reels anywhere from left to right, and you win. It’s like having 243 pay-lines but without all the hassle, and could help you ‘catch’ some cracking wins.
Your symbols on the reels include; a big old grizzly bear with a fish in its mouth, an eagle swooping down, a seaplane, a great big bloody salmon, another huge fish, a fishing rod, some colourful bait and a winner’s trophy.
The Scatter in the game is the fishing tackle box. Land 3x of these to trigger off your Free Spins Round. The Alaskan Fishing Logo is your Wild symbol in this slot, and will substitute for all other symbols on the reels apart from the Scatter. It will also appear stacked both in the base game, and during the Free Spins bonus. Bonza!
Last of all is the Fisherman symbol. To set off the the Fly Fishing bonus game, you need to land this cheerful bloke on reels 1 and 5 at the same time.
Fly Fishing Bonus
Once you’ve triggered the Fly Fishing bonus, you’ll be transported to a peaceful lakeside spot where you’ll get to pick 5 different places (out of a possible 10) to cast your reel and fish for extra cash wins. There are 3 prizes; the Small Fish, the Medium Fish and the Big Fish. Once you’ve finished the round, a random multiplier of between 2x and 15x is added to your wins, too!
You could be having a whale of a time!
Free Spins Round
15 Free Spins are yours in this cheeky little bonus Wombat Fans, plus anything you win will also be doubled here! You can also re-trigger the Free Spins in this round, while the Fly Fishing Bonus can be set off during play too. Brilliant!
The graphics aren’t the best in Alaskan Fishing slot, but we quite like the theme – it makes a change from the standard Irish slots. The Free Spins round is also generous and with those Stacked Wilds you could get lucky.
Microgaming launched this slot in August 2015, and it’s still going and still a popular game at Wombat Casino.
Plaice your bets! Sorry, we couldn’t help it…
