Alaskan Fishing Slots Review
Fishing is one of the most popular pastimes in the world so why not make a video slots game out of it? Well that’s just what hugely successful Micrograming have done and let’s hope when playing this, you can land yourself a really big catch.
This is a non-progressive five reels slots game with 243 ways to win. Those winning combinations stay throughout the game so there’s no decision to be made here over how many lines you want to play. Your simple decision is to conclude the size of your stake and the number of coins you want. The minimum bet is £0.30 and the maximum bet here is £300 a spin, simply decide on staking this if you can really afford to lose it.
The theme of the game is totally adhered to in the choice of symbols. We have the Alaskan Fishing logo, a bear with a fish in his mouth, an eagle, several fish, a tackle box, a fisherman casting his line, a sea plane, a trophy and fishing equipment. The graphics are pretty good and the accompanying soundtrack is quite pleasant especially when you get a good win and that also gets you some good animations too.
Playing the game is pretty straightforward and this has two modes in which to play, namely regular and expert. You can change which mode you want to play in by clicking on the rather small button at the bottom right of the screen. The expert mode allows you to have an autoplay feature where you can set up either five or ten automatic spins of the reels.
There’s also a statistics button you can press that shows you how long you’ve been playing and your top three wins.
There are two bonus features in this game involving the wild and scatter symbols. The wild is the Aslaskan Fishing logo and the good news is that these are stacked so that gives you a really good chance of building up some good wins. If you can get the wild symbol on reels one and five then this triggers the Fly Fishing Bonus Round. This is a Pick Me bonus game where you have five picks to make and there are bonuses between 2x and 15x up for grabs.
The tackle box is the scatter symbol in ‘Alaskan Fishing.’ You need at least three of these on the reels at the end of a spin in order to trigger the free spins bonus. You’re given 15 free spins and the stake you bet in the spin that triggered the bonus round continues to be the one used during the free spins. The other good news is that all wins are doubled during this bonus round.
These aren’t the most complex bonus rounds you’ve ever seen but just to get used to playing them, try to have a few free games to get you used to just how the game works.
There’s certainly some fun to be had in this game so it’s definitely worth a play. The bonus rounds can be profitable and the presentation of the game is impressive.
