The slot game war released on 24.5.2017 and, as of now, is only available in selective online casinos. If you want to try this new slot machine you can find it on Thrills casino.
The Angler is a 5 reels and 20 paylines slot machine, available on desktop, tablet, as well as most other mobile devices. The min and max bets players can lay – range from 0.20 to 100, depending on the currency played. Also, the coin size ranges from 0.02 to 1. As the name suggests, the slot game’s theme is all about fishing. A manly looking angler sporting fisherman’s clothes stands on the right hand side of the screen. The reel set resembles a fishing net, while the background show a lovely view of a lake between some imposing looking mountains.
The high value symbols on the reels all relate to the slot’s theme. These symbols feature the angler, himself, as the highest paying symbol. Moreover we have a hammerhead shark, a turtle, as well as a green and a red fish. All high value symbols can appear stacked on the reels. J, Q, K and A make up the low value symbols. The scatter symbol is a clam with a shiny pearl inside, and only lands on reels 3, 4 and 5. The slot game also has a bonus symbols in the form of a bucket full of fish. Finally, the wild symbol is a red octopus which can only land on reels 2, 3 4 and 5. Wilds can substitute for all other symbols except the scatter and bonus symbols.
Players can trigger the free spins feature by landing 3 scatter symbols, simultaneously, on reels 3, 4 and 5. Triggering this feature will award 8 free spins. During the free spins, any wilds that land will stick in place for the duration of the spins. Finally, players can re-trigger the feature by landing 3 additional scatters during one of the free spins.
To trigger the bonus game, players must land 3 bonus symbols (buckets of fish), anywhere in view. Triggering the bonus will make the angler jump on a boat and go fishing. This fishing trip is a picking mini-game, and here the player has two choices. The choices are “Pull” or “Reel” and the player will have to pick either of them. Each pick will result in the angler getting or not getting a fish. The goal is to get 3 fishes, in which case the bonus will end, and the player will win a cash prize.
The slot machine also has a gambling option which allows players double every win. After any standart win, players can click on the “Double Up” button which will activate the gambling mini game. Here the players can flip a golden coin and select heads or tail. Players can choose to gamble all the win or just half of it. Picking correctly will double the gambled amount, while picking incorrectly will make the player lose the gambled amount. There is no limit to the number of gambles the player can make consecutively.
The Angler is a medium volatility online slot machine with an RTP of 96%. The max wins possible can be made during the free spins feature thanks to the sticky wilds. The slot looks gorgeous, with superb animations, excellent graphics and a top quality design. The game-play and soundtrack are also, both, very soothing. All in all, a very straightforward online slot, which looks excellent and has a good winning potential. So if you like fishing but don’t have the time to go, head to Thrills casino and try The Angler slot machine instead.
