Fishing is not something you would expect to find in a slot, but for all you avid fishermen and women you are going to love this game. Boku Slots has been riverside with the team from Microgaming to bring you to the briny depths in Alaskan Fishing. So, prepare your rods and tackle, because we are off to fish and we aren’t coming back until we reel in the biggest catch.
Alaskan Fishing is a 5-reel, 243 pay line slot game that lives and breathes all things fishing. It has an amazing RTP of 96.63% and this more than makes up for the over drawn graphics and tinny soundtrack. If you miss the lure of the river in the winter months and wish spring would hurry up, then why not pass the time away here instead.
Bet Amounts – Betting begins at 1p on coin level 1, making your total spin cost just 60p for a 243-pay line spin. Or you can increase your bet amount up to 5p and your coin level up to 10, making it just £15 for a 243-pay line spin. Combine this with the impressive RTP and you have potentially got a winning combination right there.
Wild Symbol – The wild symbol is the Alaskan Fishing Logo, it substitutes for all symbols except the scatter and the bonus symbol. It’s a stacked wild meaning when it lands it creates more chances of winning. Finally it’s also the highest paying symbol, meaning collect 5 across a winning pay line and you will receive a pay out of 500x the bet amount.
Scatter Symbols – Your scatter symbol is the box of fishing tackle and landing 3 or more of these across an active pay line will trigger the bonus spins game. It will also award you 100x your bet amount if you land 5 of these across a winning pay line.
Bonus Symbol – Should you land the fisherman symbol on reels 1 and 5, you will trigger the bonus game. This is where you will get to enjoy some online fishing. The bonus symbol also awards a 400x bet amount win when landing 5 across a winning pay line.
Bonus Spins Feature – Having landed 3 or more scatter symbols on Alaskan Fishing you will trigger the bonus spins feature. You will be awarded 15 spins during the feature regardless of how many scatters you land, as long as it is above 3. Any win during the feature is doubled and it can be retriggered by landing the scatter symbols again in combinations of 3 or more. The fly fishing bonus game can also be triggered during the bonus spins feature and if it is triggered at the same time as the extra spins, then the bonus game will play first.
Fly Fishing Bonus Game – To trigger this bonus game you need to have landed a fisherman bonus symbol on reels 1 and 5. Once you have done this the new screen will load and you will be given the choice of spots to fish from. You can choose 5 of these and hopefully make a big catch. At the end of each round a random multiplier is added to your win between 2x and 15x.
Now for some Alaskan Fishing may be a bit boring as fishing isn’t for everyone; we get that. But for what you are getting for your bet amounts it really is worth overlooking the fishing theme and just enjoying the game play for what it is. The graphics are a little too busy for our liking, but it will appeal to those who enjoy fishing and the great outdoors.
