Submerge yourself deep under the surface of the sea with Reel ‘Em In Lobster Potty. This online slot game was developed by the UK’s top software provider Barcrest, and it’s every bit as entertaining as you would hope an offering from this developer to be. Players will find themselves amidst the abundant sea life below the surface of the deep blue. You can see schools of fish in every shape and colour swim back and forth as you spin the reels, and if you look up, you will see an old fisherman sitting in his boat and waiting for his next catch. The graphics in this offering are sharp and 3D and really help make gameplay a fun experience.
As far as the layout goes, it features your common grid of 5 reels and 3 rows. There are a total of 20 active paylines for you to place your wagers on, but note that these are fixed. Therefore, there will be no fiddling with their numbers. As for the possible betting amounts, they start at a minimum stake of 20p per single spin and range to a very hefty maximum bet of £500 per spin.
There are three Big Bet options in Reel ‘Em In Lobster Potty. Each of them will buy you 5 consecutive spins with some additional benefits:
- The £20 Big Bet will give you more Wilds more often throughout those spins.
- The £30 Big Bet will also give you more Wilds, but on top of that it will also grant you access to the Big Bite Bonus. As part of it, you will see a shark swim by the reels and turn one of the symbols into a 2x Wild. Hence, that Wild symbol will double the payouts for any winning combo it contributes to.
- Last but not least you have the most expensive £50 Big Bet. This one will give you the same benefits as the £20 bet and access to the Mega Bite Bonus. The difference here is that the shark can bring by Wilds with multipliers of up to 10x.
The Wild symbol can substitute for all of the symbols present in this game without any exceptions. However, it cannot appear just anywhere, and on top of that it doesn’t offer any payouts of its own either. The Wild can only land on reels 3, 4 and 5.
Reel ’em in Bonus
When it comes to bonus features in Reel ‘Em In Lobster Potty there is only one and it’s a different kind of bonus altogether. Keep an eye out for the Sandy Background symbol, which can appear in any position on the reels at any point during gameplay. Much like the Wild, it doesn’t offer any payouts of its own, instead, it will be responsible for triggering the Reel ‘Em in Bonus.
For this to happen, though, you will need to turn all 5 reels into sand. As a result, anywhere from 1 to all 5 of the reels will be activated. This means that these active reels will spin together and then come to a stop from left to right. The values of the fish that are on the reels will then be added together and they will appear on the meter below the reel.
If you happen to land a Boot symbol on an active reel, though, that reel will be closed. The feature will then continue all the way until you land a Boot on every reel and they all close. At that point you will receive the cumulative payouts from all the fish symbols.
Reel ‘Em In Lobster Potty is a genuinely entertaining offering, and it certainly doesn’t hurt that the graphics are so good. It’s a decent medium variance offering with pretty good winning opportunities.
