The wombat says: Set in a frozen underwater lake, Lucky Angler- a Snowy Catch is a NetEnt slot with a decidedly fishy theme. This wombat’s not a huge fan of fishing for sport, but fishing for cash is a whole other thing! What will you catch in these icy waters Wombat Fans? Hopefully a lot more than just a spot of pneumonia… Let’s spin and see if we can’t reel you in a big un’.
Look and Feel
The fun animated graphics are awesome in this slot, and the reels are set on top of the frozen lake with some very cheeky little fishies swimming around behind the reels – all under the thick layer of ice above! One of the best cartoon games we have seen (well the Turning Totems slot is pretty damn good too).
The base game is played with the sunshine shining down on the reels, but the reels turn dark for the Free Spins round. The soothing sounds of water lapping the frozen shore finish of the wintery vibe.
Lucky Angler slot has 5 reels and 15 pay-lines from NetEnt- those people behind the Mythic Maiden slot. This game is a 243 Ways to Win game – meaning wins are paid out from both left to right and right to left.
Your standard 10, J, Q, K and A make up the low-paying symbols, and look like they’ve been carved out of ice, while a whole host of colourful marine life make up the rest of the slot’s symbols.
A cocky red fish, another chirpy-looking blue one, a gormless green lobster and a very smiley yellow cat fish are your main icons. The Wild symbol in the game is the golden fish with a hook for a mouth – presumably there to help you pick up extra cash!! Your aim is to hook a big jackpot like you’d do in Dolphin Gold Stellar Jackpots, so cast away and start fishing.
There’s a Sticky Wild feature in the base game which we like! The Wilds appear on reels 2 and 4 and are triggered off when the Wild symbol is part of a winning combo. You’ll see the fish being hooked and reeled in and then turned into an ice cube! It will stay frozen as long as you keep making winning combos on the reels…
Lucky Angler Free Spins and Scatter
The bonus round takes place under the moonlight (how romantic?) and the number of spins you’ll get is determined by how many of the Fishy Scatters you landed in the first place. So; 3x will give you 10 Free Spins, 4x will give you 15 Free spins and 5x will give you a brain-freezingly good 20!
You’ll also see a Sticky Wild symbol in the middle of reel 3 which is permanent throughout the feature. You can re-trigger the Free Spins if by landing another 3x or more Fish Scatters during the feature.
Lucky Angler Touch
Lucky Angler is available for iOS and Android tablets and mobiles! Net Ent’s Touch platform optimises slots for smartphones, maximising the user interface (that’s the screen to me and you) to include the same excellent features that the desktop game offers. Worth a go if you like to spin on the hop!
A very popular NetEnt slot this one, and the Sticky Wilds really come in handy during the Free Spins. What with the fishy theme and all, there’s lots of scope for a pick ’em up Bonus game which is sadly missing from the slot, but you have to remember that you can win from left to right and from right to left on this game. No one’s perfect. Well, except for this wombat of course.
Wombat score: 4/5
Loses a point for no Bonus round.
