Creature from the Black Lagoon Slots

Creature-from-the-Black-LagoonBased on a movie that has over six decades of history behind it already, Creature from the Black Lagoon was great fun when it first came out, and it’s just as much fun in the form that Net Entertainment gave it when they’ve decided to turn it into a slot machine. It’s one of their usual superb designs, but they didn’t use a modern style for it, that would’ve been sacrilege. Instead, you get a truly retro game, with the drawing style and the pin-up model both being from the 50s, as it should be.

This game has among its features a range of decent options, with free spins, scatters and sticky wilds being all part of it, along with a payout of up to $3,750. It was created by Net Ent, it has 5 reels and 20 paylines.

Features of Creature from the Black Lagoon

The list of features available in the game might not be too long, but it’s good enough to offer you a fun experience, with sticky wilds, free spins and scatter symbols being enough in this case.

The wild symbol is the first of the feature symbols, with the logo of the game used for its image. There are three variants of the wild, with different colors placed in the background, but they work largely the same. One of them is a regular wild, the other two are spreading wilds that will expand and cover the reel. On top of that, the wilds are also going to be sticky symbols, remaining in place for one free re-spin. The target and the free spin symbols can’t be replaced with a wild, but the other symbols all benefit from their presence.


Free Games Feature

The scatter symbol is very easy to recognize, as it is marked directly with the words Free Spin, written in letters that appear to be made out of ice. As this is a scatter symbol, its exact location on the game’s reels doesn’t matter, only the total number of symbols being taken into account. You need between three and five Free Spin symbols, to get the 10 to 20 free games available.

As you progress in the game, you’re going to discover that Target symbols appear from time to time, and that you can either get an extra 10 free spins with their help, or 1-2 different spreading wilds.


Betting options and jackpots

The bets of up to $100 that you place in this game are enough to cover the 20 paylines with bets of up to $5, where 10 coins of $0.50 are its components. A total of 200 coins of $0.50 make up the maximum wager. The smallest denomination allowed for one coin is $0.01. The smallest wager is worth $0.20, all lines required to be part of a bet.

You can walk away with prizes of up to 750 times the bet you made, or 7,500 coins, but in cash it translates only to $3,750. The beautiful redhead is the one that can give you this prize.

Design and symbols

One of the biggest advantages of this game is the true retro design that Net Ent used. They seem to have done a lot of work to make sure this is a game that you will associate with a movie launched in 1954, and it shows in the quality of the design. The 50s style means that you get pin-up models, objects made back then and men that have the clothes and haircuts of the time. The lagoon and the forest surrounding it are visible in the background, the coloring of the scene being the right kind for that era as well.

Symbols: Logo (wild), Free Spin (scatter), Kay (750x), David (600x), Carl (500x), Lucas (400x), Binoculars (125x), Scuba Tank (125x), Camera (100x) and Knife (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

It doesn’t really matter if you’re a fan of the movie or not, the design and the rest of the game stands on its own, despite having rather low top payouts. It’s a game you will not regret experiencing, even if it’s only for a couple of spins.

The Creature from the Black Lagoon slot machine is offered through the Net Entertainment platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
