Creature from the Black Lagoon Slot Review
Creature from the Black Lagoon is powered by Net Entertainment and created in partnership with Universal. It’s a 5 reel 20 payline slot 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.
In the base game, wild symbols can appear randomly (there are 3). When they do appear, they act like a sticky wild and remain on the reels for a re-spin or re-spins. The re-spins ends when no more new wilds remain on the reels. I’ve managed to win over 200 times my stake from sticky wilds being on the reels.
The Free Spins feature is 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 will give you 10 free spins, 4 symbols will give you 15 free spins and 5 symbols will give you 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 – in level 1, if 0-2 target symbols are collect, any wild symbol appearing on the reels will act like a sticky wild and remain on the reels for 1 re-spin. In 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.
In 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. At 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!
I found Creaturee from the Black Lagoon to be a medium variance game – it gives out plenty of small wins with wins from the Free Spins feature being on the smaller side. Saying that, I’ve managed to win handsomely – 200 times my stake on a couple of occasions. The game doesn’t come close to other NetEnt slots like Piggy Riches and EggOMatic in my opinion, but a welcome addition.
