The Alaskan Fishing game from Microgaming is one of the most relaxing slots you will come across. For those of you who enjoy a spot of fishing then you will know that nothing beats the peace and tranquillity a day by the lake can bring. Whilst the online slots industry is often fast paced and hectic, this title brings a little more calm to proceedings, and has quickly become one of Microgaming’s most popular slots.
One of the reasons for its popularity is the inclusion of a 5 reel, 243 payline game. These types of games aren’t all that rare, but what you usually get is an extreme of either a massively high variance game or a massively low variance. Alaskan Fishing is one that seems to fall right in the sweet spot making it a popular choice.
The calm shores and lakes surrounding Alaska are where this slot is based. This comes hand in hand with a number of fish including cod, halibut, trout but also animals such as bears, eagles, butterflies. It’s a diverse mix of graphics without a doubt, but it does provide a good mix.
Freespins Bait Box
The gameplay is where the slot has managed to have the most success. First up are your free spins symbol which is the bait box. 3 or more of these will result in entrance to the free spins round resulting in 15 free spins. On top of that, you get a 2x multiplier once in the game and this also allows you to re-trigger the free spins, meaning the final amount of spins could be much higher than just 15.
Interestingly, the free spins symbol also works as a bonus multiplier and this is where you will be able to get in on the maximum bonus of over 1.2 million coins. 5 symbols will result in a bonus multiplier of 100x your maximum bet. So obviously, to get the maximum win, you need to be betting the maximum amount.
Fly Fishing Bonus
The Fly Fishing Bonus can be triggered by getting the symbol of the fisherman on both reels 1 and 5. Once into this feature, it’s a simple pick and play game where you can choose 5 picks with bonuses ranging between 2x and 1x your initial bet amount.
Finally, the Alaskan Fishing log is stacked within all bonus games and free spins round. It will hold as well as you continue to spin whilst the multiplier is added.
