Reel ‘Em In Lobster Potty is brought to you by Barcrest and has 5 reels and 20 paylines. Playable from 20p to £500 per spin on all devices, you cast your line to catch a big one as there’s plenty of bonus features, including wins of up to 500 times your stake, in this angling themed offering.
Visually, Reel ‘Em In Lobster Potty has cartoon style graphics and is quite simple – set at sea, you will see a fisherman on his boat just above the reel set. Symbols on the reels including playing cards A, K, Q and J as well as a selection of fish. You will also see a wild symbol which replaces all symbols bar the scatter.
In terms of features, you have the Reel ‘Em In Bonus feature which is played by getting 5 sandy backgrounds on all 5 reels – reels from 1 to 5 can become active with those reels containing cash amounts, blanks and Boot symbols. The latter is uses to close the reel. The feature continues until all active reels are closed.
There’s a Lobster Pots Bonus feature which is also triggered by getting 5 sandy backgrounds on all 5 reels – you will see Gold, Silver and Bronze pots with the middle reel (reel 3) only spinning. It then spins and stops to highlight a lobster – you will win the amount associated with the chosen lobster. This can be up to 500 times your total stake.
As a Barcrest slot, it has a Big Bet feature where you play 5 linked spins at a cost – it benefits from a More Wild, More Often feature where there’s an increase in the number of wild symbols appearing on reels 3, 4 and 5.
You can also benefit from the Big Bite Bonus feature which is triggered at random – a shark will appear over a reel and then turns 1 of the symbols into a 2x wild. You can also trigger the Mega Bite Bonus feature randomly where the shark will choose a reel and turn 1 of the symbols into a 3x, 4x, 5x or 10x wild – the wild amount is selected randomly. This means that your 5 linked spins can use 10x wilds!
Reel ‘Em In Lobster Potty is an entertaining slot from Barcrest which is medium variance – I found the bigger wins to come from the Big Bet feature especially if you trigger the Mega Bite Bonus feature with the 10x multiplier wilds! If you like the theme, IGT’s Lucky Larry’s Lobstermania 2 is highly recommended.
