Lucky Angler: A Showy Catch is a creation by NetEntertainment and it comes with 5 reels and 15 fixed pay lines. Ice-fishing is the theme of the slot so the reels are conveniently set under the frozen water surface where all the fish (read: awards) are. Lucky Angler features Free Spins bonus and Sticky Wilds. Furthermore, your chances for making winning combos are enhanced with the Win Both Ways feature. This means that you can win by matching symbols both from left to right and right to left. With the betting values from 30p to £150, Lucky Angler is convenient for both tighter and bigger budgets. Symbols-wise, they include the lower paying card symbols covered in ice and theme-related symbols that make up the higher values which include different kinds of fish and a boot. You can check out the payout values of all symbols on the paytable in the information section of the slot. But we should mention that you should keep an eye on the red fish since it is the highest paying symbol of all. And each combination of 5 matching symbols on a line is a Win Both Ways win and it doubles up the payout value of the symbol in question. There are a few more of good stuff waiting for you in this ice-fishing adventure.
Sticky Wilds Substitutions and Free Spins Bonus
The great thing about Lucky Angler is that you get a lot of sticky wilds that help you create those big icy wins. Wild is a goldfish symbol that substitutes for all other symbols on the reels except for the scatter icon. Every wild can be a sticky wild which appears only on reels 2 and 4 in the base game and on reels 2, 3, and 4 in the free spin round. The catch about these sticky wilds is that they stay put on the reels when they complete a winning combination and stay there until there are no more new wins with that sticky wild. This also applies to the free spins round where sticky wilds appear on an additional forth reel creating bigger chances for wins and just helping you reach those snowy catches underneath the surface of the frozen lake. Those free spins are activated by landing 3 or more scatters anywhere in sight in the base game, as well as in the bonus round which re-triggers the feature. 3, 4, or 5 scatters award 10, 15, or 20 free spins. Apart from the wilds becoming sticky when part of a winning combination as in the base game, the free spins round starts with the sticky wild appearing on the third reel and sticks there until the end of the bonus. So there is one sticky wild that will always have your back during the bonus and be there to help you create your wins.
