Creature from the Black Lagoon slot
Today we are taking you back to back with a review of one Netent’s branded video slots. The slot was released close to 2 years ago now and is indeed quite interesting! The theme is based on a movie that was made back in 1954. For being branded on such an old theme, the slot is still very stylish with fresh new graphics that is inspired of them movie instead of taking pictures directly from the movie.
Creature of the black lagoon is quite a high-volatile slot, the free spins feature can get completely covered in wild symbols if you are lucky enough. This doesn’t happen very often of course, however when it does it can surely pay over 1000 times the bet amount.
There are a few features worth noting in the video slot. First off we have the single wild symbol that is present both in the free spins feature and in the base game. Whenever a wild appears anywhere on the reels you get 1 re-spin. Note that this can be triggered several times in a row, so if you get 1 wild, then you get another wild in the re-spin, it will re-spin once again. The re-spin feature does occur both in the base game and in the free spins feature.
The free spins feature is somewhat progressive in this slot. If you manage to get 3 free spins symbols in the base game, you are awarded with 10 free spins. At the bottom right of the game, you will see the creature’s avatar and a health bar, the main objective is to kill the creature by getting trigger symbols on the 5th reel in while in free spins.
For every 3 times you manage to attack the creature, your wild symbol evolves to cover more area on the reels. The wild symbol can evolve 2 times, first to cover 2 positions in the slot, and secondly to cover 3 positions, if you manage to hit the creature 3 more times after evolving the wild 2 times you kill the creature and is awarded a cash price on top of all the winnings you gather in the free spins feature.
This video slot is surely one of my favorites, I have played it quite frequently ever since it was released and I am just so happy with how the mechanics work. The bonus feature somewhat reminds me of Jack and the beanstalk, however the winnings are focused on less free spins in this feature.
