Do you go both ways…?
The most exciting feature is the Both Ways Win. It’s a great feature in the sense that typical winning lines only count combinations from the left to right, but in Lucky Angler winning combinations from both left to right and right to left are counted.
So you can imagine the amount of possibilities, and the surprises. Trying to follow the winning combinations as they form will make your eyes twist and turn – and you will most likely get some surprise wins.
… Or are you a free spinner?
A Free Spin mode is activated when a Scatter symbol appears on any reel. 3 Spin Scatter symbols will give 10 Free Spins, 4 symbols will give 15 spins, and 5 symbols will give you as many as 20 spins. Free spins use the same bet level and coin value as used in the activating round. You can get even more Free Spins during the Free Spins rounds and the result can sometimes make you pretty much useless as the game just keeps on playing itself while the winnings pile up. Free Spin mode will also give a Sticky Wild symbol on reel 3, and more Sticky Wilds can appear on reels 2 and 4.
And what is a Sticky Wild? It’s the mother of all symbols that knows how to connect possible winning combinations by acting like any other symbol. This symbol will save your ass so many times that you’ll learn to love it – like your own mother. When the Sticky Wild symbols form a winning combination they will remain at their place during all spins, even the one with the sticky wilds. So basically your chances of winning will go up multiple times. However, if the Sticky Wild has no use, it will disappear.
And the technical details
There are 15 fixed paylines in Lucky Angler. There are ten bet levels, and coin values can bet set on 6 different levels. The coin values are 1 cent, 2 cents, 5, 10, 20 and 50 cents. The smallest possible bet at bet level 1 is therefore 30 coins times €0.01 equalling €0.30. This is a really low bet for the amount of lines, so you can keep spinning for quite some time. The maximum bet is €150.
