Creature from the Black Lagoon Slot Review
NetEnt is known to be one of the powerhouse players within the online casino universe. They have created a brand for themselves and are continuously seeking to find new and innovative casino games to bring to the table.
One such a game is the Creature from the Black Lagoon slot. Despite its long name, this game keeps a very standard slot play of 5 reels across 20 paylines. It is however still a great concept, one that has been executed with great precision and intricacy. The game is based on the very popular 1950’s film of the same name, that features the monstrous Creature from the Black Lagoon. NetEnt has managed to incorporate the narrative and feel of the movie throughout this concept.
All you need to know about gameplay
Playing Creature from the Black Lagoon is simple enough. You have to place your bet. The betting minimum that one can place is as low as $0.20 a spin and the maximum is $100. Once you have decided on your bet amount by setting the coin denomination and selecting your paylines, you have the opportunity to make some serious money.
This game features a free spin bonus round, that grants you access to some free spins, which can the be triggered and re-triggered again. Getting access to this round is simple enough, all you need to do is match three, four or five symbols. The matches are from left to right and will determine how big your payout will be. 3 symbols give you 10 free spins, 4 symbols give you 15 free spins and 5 bonus symbols give you 20 free spins. Another key feature to keep your eyes peeled out for is the Target Symbol that appears on reel 5, this occurs when the creature makes its cameo on the right of the screen. Using the target to hit the creature ensures it loses its health points which are depicted on the bottom of the game screen. There are four levels of the creature’s health and each level has various winning opportunities.
There are three Wild Symbols. These are sticky or spreading Wilds, which means when they appear they remain on the board, triggering four more re-spin action. Wilds will also replace any other symbol except for the scatter symbol. The unfortunate thing about the Wilds is that they don’t have payout multipliers. The other symbols in this game include a pair of binoculars, Lady Kayis, an old looking camera and a few more other symbols.
Aesthetically the game isn’t really much of a wonder. In fact, it is basic in all regards. It does look very appealing, although the graphics aren’t the best out there. They are however 3D animated and the color palette is suitable to the slot’s narrative.
This game is perfect for someone who isn’t looking for too much of a challenge. It is simplistic and that works for it. You do have the potential of winning some money, be warned though many players have reported dry spells during the play and that activating free spins can be a little difficult.
