Lucky Fishing is a bright and cheerful 5-reel video slot based on the popular theme of fishing. Fans of games such as Reel Em In and let’s Go Fish’n will love this as it relates to the long line of fishing games that have been massive hits in Vegas and casinos around the world.
There is a fun bonus (ouep, it is based on fishing), and the possibility of a decent size 10,000 coin to win from any turn. The graphics are bright and cartoon, and as with all Octopus gaming slot machines the game works very well.
When you don’t spin the reels, the sound effects are very similar to a fishing trip. Only a sound bird can break the peace. There’s a happy look when you spin, which got a little boring after a while. Cartoons like graphics are in the background of this slot, and include some nice touches, for example a crab that takes a look under the pay table Button and a frog that looks at you from time to time. The symbols are very bright and seem a little messy on the first view. You will soon be listening in the boot, worm, float, cane and various fishing people across. There are also animations on the reels, with the crab that is worth watching.
In addition to the fishing game, there are wild and scatter symbols in play. There are no free spins in this particular game however.
This slot uses the standard Octopus Gaming 20-line installation (you can choose from these), with a 1c to $5 per line bet line. This gives a rotation cost of 20c to $ 100 for all lines. There is a Settings button that allows you to turn off sounds or animations and you can press Auto-play if you want.
Most Octopus game slots have a huge winning combination, in addition to many means and smaller. In Lucky Fishing this is the wild symbol of wide-eyed crab. Land 5 of these on one line, and you will win 10,000 coins, 4 are worth 1,000 coins, 3 get you 100 and even 2 have a 10 coin payout. Wild symbols also combine with any of the regular symbols below to complete wins-although they do not replace scatter symbols or bonus symbols.
The game is quite simple. You can take the role of happy fisherman, and decide where to throw. He’ll throw away his line and pick up a fish that will have a coin value. This repeats itself over and over again, with more coins accumulating, until sooner or later you will get a “game over” symbol instead. This makes for an entertaining break from the main game-and of course is perfectly in line with the general theme of fishing.
