Lucky Angler Video Slot review
Lucky Angler A Snowy Catch is a NetEnt-powered slot game with 5 reels and 15 paylines – the game is a Win Both Ways slot too! The game is set in an underwater view of a frozen lake with fish swimming in behind the symbols. As usual with NetEnt slots, the animations and graphics are brilliant. You can play from as little as 30p to as much as £150 a spin.
The base game is played in the sunshine – the game benefits from a great Sticky Wild feature – when a sticky wild symbol (only on reels 2 and 4) forms part of a winning combination, the fish is hooked and reel in to freeze into an ice cube and stick on the reels. The wild then remains on the reels as long as you have a winning combination.
The Sticky Wild feature also applies in the Free Spins feature and appear on the 3 middle reels. You can trigger the Free Spins feature by getting 3 or more Fish scatters anywhere on the reels. 3 scatters will give you 10 free spins, 4 will give you 15 free spins and 5 scatters will give you 20 free spins. You will also notice that the feature is played in the moonlight and the Sticky Wild symbol remains sticky in the middle of reel 3. You can also get more free spins during the feature too.
Lucky Angler is available to play both your PC/laptop as well as your mobile/tablet device. Most wins will come in the base game but the bigger wins will come in the Free Spins feature. Over 90% of free spins will give you a win which is good. The maximum is a decent 685 times your stake.
This is a medium variance game in my opinion where I’ve won over 350 times my stake in the Free Spins feature (I did have 4 sticky wilds for 7 winning free spins though!). If you like Sticky Wilds, you also try NetEnt’s Dead or Alive which is much higher variance. If you like expanding/sticky reels, you can’t go wrong with WMS’ Black Knight II though (my personal all-time favourite).
