The name of this online slot is bound to get players interested and as soon as you see it a big smile will appear on your face. It’s a colourful looking slot from Barcrest with three progressive jackpots and The Big Bite feature and there are plenty of chances to get wins that look as delicious as a lobster on your plate.
This slot has compatibility with mobile devices as well as your PC and has a great look to it. As is the case with many aquatic themed slot games, the reels are transparent and we can see some fish swimming in the background. Above the reels are three lobsters showing the size of the big jackpots plus a fisherman desperate to catch something as long as it’s not a boot.
The symbols are quite large and will certainly grab your attention. This slot has five reels and on its three rows are a fixed amount of 20 pay-lines. The minimum stake for this game is just 0.20 and the maximum bet 500 if you have a high limit. Just stake an amount that won’t cause any financial worries if you don’t hook many winners.
In the base game, there are a couple of fish, one of which is orange and the other yellow. That’s what they are described as in the pay table which is extremely helpful and full of details about the rules of this game. That’s only been mentioned just in case you think this reviewer hasn’t a clue what type of fish they are, mind you if they’d been cod or plaice I’d have been in there like a shot. We also get to see the Jack to Ace playing card symbols and the Reel ‘Em In logo.
The wild symbol isn’t a fancy looking one, it simply says WILD in red on a blue sea background with a yellow and black border. Not too fancy looking but it’s the best symbol as it can substitute for the other symbols apart from the scatter but only appears on the third, fourth and fifth reels and can win players lots of real cash.
There are plenty of profitable features in the ‘Reel ‘Em In Lobster Potty’ video slot. The Reel ‘Em In bonus is triggered when five sandy background appear on the five reels. A reel then becomes active with a series of fish hopefully appearing, all with different monetary values. The wins keep coming until that dreaded boot appears.
The Lobster Pots Bonus is also triggered when you get five sandy backgrounds on each and every reel, strange how an aquatic themed slot depends so much on sand. This time you get to see the Gold, Silver and Bronze lobster pots and it’s only the third reel that spins. It will choose a lobster and that’s the progressive jackpot you win and hopefully it’ll be the Gold one and this could be as high as 500 times your stake.
This being a Barcrest slot it includes the Big Bet feature and this can produce some large wins but at a higher stake. Players pay for five spins with an increased chance of getting winning combinations. There are three options available for players and special features come into play such as more wild symbols but it does cost a fair bit. The first option costs players 20 to activate with five spins and more wild symbols on the reels. Go for a stake of 30 and there’s the Big Bite Bonus feature and with 50 there’s the Mega Big Bite Bonus.
Time to tell you about the Big Bite Bonus feature which can be triggered at random and if I was that fisherman it’d be time to get worried as a shark suddenly appears and turns one symbol into a wild with a 2x multiplier. If the Mega Bite Bonus feature is triggered then the transformed symbol will have either a 3x, 4x, 5x or 10x multiplier so big wins could be on their way, particularly if being triggered right at the start of the Big Bet spins. Punters need to be careful with the Big Bet and don’t let it wreck your playing budget.
There are other slot games out that can be played at an online casino that are similar in gameplay. Test out another Barcrest slot ‘Monopoly; Bring the House Down’ which has 40 pay-lines but is also of medium variance and offers players the chance to win some free spins. If you like slot games that have progressive jackpots then you should try the Ash Gaming slot ‘Batman and Mr Freeze Fortune’ where there are four on the line on every spin.
A rather complicated game and it is important to have some free Reel ‘Em In Lobster Potty’ slot machine games before trying this with real cash. It looks great and thankfully the repetitive soundtrack can be muted. There are plenty of ways to get wins in this slot and it’s good to see bonus features with tasty multipliers so this is a top game that’s well worth playing.
