Focus on Creature from the Black Lagoon
Horror movies back in the 1950s were a whole bunch different to those we know and (in some cases) love, but even so, The Creature from the Black Lagoon had a captivating quality to it…a sort of quiet, slow-burning tension as the lead characters try to tame the mysterious beast.
Happily, NetEnt have managed to capture that atmosphere perfectly in this medium volatility game, which has an RTP of 96.47%.
As you work your way through the murky depths, you will note that the 20 paylines on your 5×3 gameboard are fixed in place.
But you can still modify your stake per spin in Creature from the Black Lagoon. Coin values range from $0.05 to $0.50 and there are ten different bet levels, and so your minimum wager per spin is $1.00 and the maximum is $100.
Gameplay of Creature from the Black Lagoon
Thankfully, you don’t actually have to take on the Creature in this most atmospheric of video slots, and you don’t even have to get your feet wet either.
Stay on dry land and spin the reels, hoping to match three or more of the same symbol on an active payline, starting from the leftmost reel and moving to the right.
Winning Symbols on Creature from the Black Lagoon
You may not be familiar with the main characters from the movie, but they make up the foundation of Creature from the Black Lagoon’s most basic payouts. Other icons represent the tools you might need to take down a beast from the deep, such as a knife, an underwater camera, an oxygen tank, and binoculars.
The special symbols in this slot have their own cool animations, with the wild bursting out of a box bearing the game’s name – that’ll give you a nice shock when it first happens, and the free spins symbol bubbles up from the depths.
There’s sticky and spreading wilds too, with the former ‘sticking’ to your reels during re-spins and the latter taking over whole reels to enhance your winning combinations. All wilds can substitute for other main game symbols too.
Bonus & Free Spins
Three or more of the free spins symbol on your reels will trigger the bonus feature of the same name – you’ll earn 10 free turns for three symbols, 15 for four, and a handsome 20 for a full line of five.
The object is to shoot down the Creature using your harpoon, which you can do by spinning the target symbol. Land ten targets and you will be handed ten free spins for your troubles.
Throughout the bonus game, all three of the wilds can appear on your reels and you may also be awarded re-spins as well!
