NetEnt’s Creature from the Black Lagoon Slot

The Creature from the Black Lagoon slot is powered by NetEnt and was created in partnership with Universal. It’s a 5 reel 20 payline game that can be played from 20p a spin to £100 a spin. The game is based on the 1954 monster horror film which became a huge success back in the day. The main character is a prehistoric, half-human creature (Gill-man) which appears in the Free Spins feature where you can get re-spins and spreading wilds.

Creature from the Black Lagoon Theme/Symbols

Visually, the Creature from the Black Lagoon online slot takes you to the heart of the misty Amazon rainforest. With the Black Lagoon in the background, it has a certain cinematic/vintage feel which perfectly portrays the classic 1954 film. With an eerie soundtrack playing, the reels are set on a map.

Low value symbols include knives, cameras, oxygen tanks and binoculars. Then you have 4 characters from the movie – there’s Lucas, Carl, David and Kay. Kay is the most rewarding symbol giving you 1.25, 12.5 or 37.5 times your stake for 3, 4 or 5 in combination.

The Creature from the Black Lagoon logo symbol in green is the wild which substitutes for all symbols except the Free Spin and target symbols. Being a simple 20 payline slot, wins are formed by seeing 3 or more matching symbols on successive reels beginning from reel 1.

Re-Spin feature

In the base game, wild symbols can appear randomly – when it appears, it becomes a sticky wild. The Re-Spin feature is then triggered with 1 re-spin awarded with the sticky wild in place. If more new wilds appear, the process is repeated to give you more re-spins. The re-spins continue as long as more wilds appear.

Free Spins feature

Creature from the Black Lagoon is all about the Free Spins feature where the prehistoric, half-fish, half-human creature captures Kay and takes her to his underwater lair. You will trigger the feature when 3 or more free spins symbols appear anywhere on the reels:

  • 3 symbols = 10 free spins
  • 4 symbols = 15 free spins
  • 5 symbols = 20 free spins

Look out for the target symbol on reel 5 as the creature appears to the right of the screen to be shot. There is a health meter on the bottom right hand corner showing the creature’s health status. When the creature gets hit, the creature’s health deteriorates. There are 4 levels to the health meter though:

  • Level 1: if 0-2 target symbols are collected, any wild symbol appearing on the reels will act like a sticky wild and remain on the reels for 1 re-spin.
  • Level 2: if 3-5 target symbols are collected, the 1st spreading wild is activated. Wild symbols will spread horizontally 1 position to the left and remain on the reels for 1 re-spin.
  • Level 3: if 6-8 target symbols are collected, the 2nd spreading wild is activated. Wild symbols will spread horizontally 1 position to the left and right and remain on the reels for 1 re-spin.
  • Level 4: 9 target symbols are collected and will trigger an extra 10 free spins. Also, wild symbols will spread to the left and right!

Creature from the Black Lagoon thoughts

Despite being released in 2003, the Creature from the Black Lagoon slot looks great – NetEnt has since revamped the game to be available on smartphone and tablet devices (from the 15th of January 2020). High variance, it has an RTP of 96.47% which is pretty good.

In terms of win potential, you can win up to 750 times your stake on each spin, re-spin or free spin – this is achieved if you fill the reels with the high value Kay symbol. The likelihood increases with the Re-Spin and Free Spins features due to sticky wilds and spreading wilds in the latter.
