You think fishing is too boring for a slot machine? Think again. With fish that come alive and try to bite off your hands or entice you in with the sound of their lures before giving it all back at once (with interest), this game will have you hooked from reel one.
From popular slot game developer Microgaming (Bookie of Odds and 9 Masks of Fire) does this one live up to some of their other titles or will you come away from the water empty handed?
It’s time to get your winter gear on for this Alaskan Fishing slot game! The background of the reels is a cold looking outdoor scene with snow-covered mountains with a deep dark forest behind. Alaskan fishing holidays are all about fun, and the high-low symbols reflect that. Fishing gear dominates both sides of this board with a boat on one side for low values and a trophy for big fish caught at the other end. Trout makes up most of these numbers while bears, eagles, trout seem to have been captured by those playing along! The sound of water slapping against the boat and distant animal sounds make for some decent soundbites. The animation is an excellent touch, with fish leaping out of the water in front you, bears roaring and bait flapping in the water.
The all ways pay slot, also known as 243 ways to win is a place where symbols can land anywhere on the reels in order to generate wins. This can provide many victories but you won’t necessarily get a huge amount per combination with the highest wild logo offering 500x your stake for 5 while trophy offers 350x.
The max bet is only £/€/$15 too! This could put some of the high rollers off but big payouts can be achieved if you are patient, just don’t expect the jackpot straight away. If proof’s what you need, look at the RTP an amazing 97% which is way above average.
Like many of Microgaming’s slot games, there are a couple of types of bonus on offer, pick and win game and free spins. The stacked wilds come in the form of the game’s logo and can appear stacked up to three high when they take over whole reels!
To win the free spins bonus, all you need to do is have three tackle sets land anywhere on the reels. This will set up 15 free spins that payout double! On top of this, if two fisherman scatter symbols appear at once in any area then you’ll be asked to pick which one has a prize under it with 5x-15x potential payoff; make sure not miss these opportunities and keep an eye out for those fishermen when they show up!
Alaskan Fishing is a slot machine in which you can generate 243 different wins. This game has all of the bells and whistles necessary to keep it interesting, but not too many that will overwhelm players with features they don’t understand. The high RTP means there’s likely some form of reward for playing this game!
