Game Description

Are you ready for a trip down a very long memory lane? The days when in 1954 Universal delivered to us the horror movie that took over the world. Ladies and gets it is time to welcome the latest NetEnt slot entitled Creature from the Black Lagoon.

A scientist and her crew have taken a trip to the Amazon River, only to discover one of the most mysterious of creatures, half man, half fish, a creature that has no mercy and will claim the lives of everyone it meets.

NetEnt have kept the same characters and theme from the horror movie but added some twists and potential wins, enough to offer you a modern spin on a vintage classic. The result? A pretty good slot that promises entertainment and great wins.

We are off to hunt and hopefully defeat the Creature from the Black Lagoon in a very Indiana Jones fashion. Joining us?

Technical Characteristics

Creature from the Black Lagoon is a 5 reel and 20 pay line slot machines that is powered an brought to you by gaming legends NetEnt. Available on all gaming platforms, the fun and your mission to destroy the vicious creature can be taken anywhere. Graphically the slot machine is impeccable with its storyline revolving around Kay, David, Carl and Lucas, the main cast from the original motion picture and the high pay line symbols in the game. During your base play a soft music will accompany through your journey along with a louder music buzzing should you land a winning combo (which to be fair, is super frequent. The interaction with the player is unique when it comes to the winning combos and you will enjoy some cheesy one-liners from the crew such as: ‘"Sitting out here, waiting for some monster to appear," and "What was that? I don't know!" But they again we remind ourselves that all NetEnt slot have that regal vibe about them. Two thumbs up NetEnt!

Your Amazonian adventure starts from a small bet of 0.20 and the maximum bet is that of 100.00 per spin, should you be in the mood to go all in and play at the maximum stake.

Apart from the main characters acting as symbols, you will also enjoy symbols such as a vintage camera, an oxygen tank, a hunting knife and binoculars; of course items that you would expect an explorer to take with him or her to an adventure. In case you were asking about the wilds and free spins; you will recognise clearly the Wild and the Free Spins symbols that are labelled as such. Expect the wild symbol to burst in front of your eyes from a green box printed with the game’s name, whilst the free spins symbol will throw some underwater bubbles your way.

Bonuses and Rewards

When it comes to bonuses and rewards, this video slot pays well. Let’s talk about the free spins. We all love some free spins every now and then after all. Once you land free spins, poor Kay is abducted by the dark creature and lured to an underwater dungeon where your bonus round takes place. 3 Free Spin symbols will grant you 10 free spins, 4 symbols will award you 15 free spins whilst the holy grail of all free spins 20, will be awarded once you land 5 symbols anywhere on your reels.

On the right hand side of your screen you will notice the creature’s health meter that will establish the creature’s health. The more wins you secure the more the creature’s life fades away; this is where the real fun begins! (We are so sorry PETA) There are 4 levels to the creature aka Gill-Man’s health, the better the level you reach the better the amount of winnings and coins you can land. During level 1, if up to 2 target symbols are landed, any wild symbol granted on your reels will indeed act as a sticky wild and remain on the reels for 1 re-spin. Reach Level 2 if you collect 3-5 target symbols, your 1st spreading wild will be activated, with wild symbols spread horizontally on your reels for another 1 re-spin. During level 3 should you collect 6-8 target symbols, the 2nd spreading wild comes to life and will remain active for another re-spin. And finally reaching Level 4 will see you collect 9 target symbols and instantly awarded 10 free spins, with wilds symbols spreading from left to right in an inferno of winnings combos. (Come on you deserve it!)

After playing this game we managed a very welcome 200x our stake which is not bad for first time playing this slot machine. The main winnings derive from the free spins rounds, the wins are smaller in size but regular, question is, do you feel you have what it takes to take down the Creature of the Black Lagoon? You will always be a conqueror with this medium variance slot machine, and we bet you will enjoy it as much as we did!
