Creature from the Black Lagoon
The Creature from the Black Lagoon is the latest to emerge from Net Entertainment’s partnership with Universal to produce slot machines based on their extensive catalogue of film properties. It follows on from the likes of Frankenstein and Scarface and is based on the 1954 film of the same name.
There are 3 wild symbols in the game. These act as a ‘sticky’ wild in that they trigger a re-spin and whilst doing so, remain stuck on the board in the position that they appeared in. Should additional Wild symbols appear the original wilds will remain and respins will be awarded again as long as there are wild symbols appearing.
Three or more Free Spins symbols activate the free spins round (surprisingly). 3 symbols award 10 spins, 4 – 15 spins and 5, 20 spins. Additional free spins can be won during the round.
During the free spins feature, you will get random target symbols. When these appear, you get to take a shot at the creature and will reduce its life by one block on the meter at the bottom right of the screen. Get to a padlock symbol on the meter and you’ll unlock a “Spreading Wild”, though during our review play, we didn’t really see this appear on the playing area.
