Take yourself back in time to the 1950’s and a movie that made people scared to venture into the water. We may not have been around when it was first aired, but at Boku Slots we love a good old fashioned scary movie. So we were excited to see how Creature from the Black Lagoon transitioned into a slot game. We should have known we had nothing to fear, because this game was designed by the team at NetEnt.
Creature from the Black Lagoon is a 5-reel, 20 pay line slot that offers a ghoulishly great RTP of 96.5% for its players. It has an Amazonian jungle theme with a soundtrack to match and let’s not forget the awesome video clip of the creature lunging for you, at the beginning of the game.
Bet Amounts – Betting on Creature from the Black Lagoon begins at 20p per spin, if you’re using the lowest of the adjustable scales on coin value and coin amount. The highest bet that can be placed is £100 using max bet on all scales.
Wild Symbol – The wild symbol is depicted by the game logo and can appear randomly at anytime and anywhere on the reels. It substitutes for all other symbols except the scatter and the target symbols.
Scatter Symbol – Your scatter symbol says free spins on it and by landing 3 or more of these anywhere on the reels, you will trigger the bonus spins feature.
Bonus Spin Feature – Having landed three or more scatters, you will trigger the bonus spins feature. You will be allocated several spins dependent upon how many scatters you land as shown below:
- 3 scatter symbols will award 10 bonus spins,
- 4 scatter symbols will award 15 bonus spins,
- 5 scatter symbols will award 20 bonus spins.
Here is where it gets fun, because once you trigger the spins a video clip showing the creature grabbing Kay will show and the spins begin. You will see a target appear at random on the reels and each time it does, a hit is made against the creature. Each number of hits garners you a reward as shown below:
- 0-2 hits – wilds become sticky and remain for one spin,
- 3-5 hits – wilds spread one place to the left and all remain for one spin,
- 6-8 hits – wilds spread one place left and right and remain for one spin,
- 9 hits – wilds spread one place left and right, remain for one spin and you are allocated 10 more spins.
The bonus spins feature on Creature from the Black Lagoon is fabulous, because it’s a different way to interact with the game and gain more spins at the same time. We really don’t have anything bad to say aside from it’s a shame the soundtrack wasn’t the one from the original movie, but we can’t have everything can we?
