Remember those old-fashioned movies? Not Hollywood films that you might expect legends like James Dean to star in, but the B-movie type films with hammy acting and costumes that would make you laugh (but also sure to cement the film into cult status). Like the Creature from the Black Lagoon, in fact. But don’t limit yourself to revisiting old films and laughing about them. Instead you can experience them. And they are a lot more rewarding in slot form.

Pros & Cons

  • Interactive bonus feature.
  • Authentic and immersive visuals.
  • Additional bonus to Free Spins feature.
  • Leans heavily on B-movie style.
  • Multiple Wilds only appear in Free Spins.

How to Play

With perhaps the exception of Microgaming, NetEnt knows how to do branded slots better than any other slots developer. In this new spin on the 1954 classic B Movie, Creature from the Black Lagoon, you’ll be taken to the swamps of South America, all depicted in classic 50s film technicolour. At the bottom of the screen, you’ll find all the main buttons like in the majority of NetEnt slots. That includes the big spin button in the middle, with betting options and level selections adjustable by clicking or tapping on the arrows next to them. If you’re ever in a pickle, select the ‘i’ button and brush up on the game menu. Then it’s time to sit back, enjoy the soundtrack and old school visuals and watch the characters from the movie bring you some wins. And the creature, of course.

Symbols

The symbols are all made up of the main characters from the movie, along with associated items. The symbols are superbly drawn to depict a classic 50s feel, and achieve in style what the game symbols do in Conan or Vikings. In the Creature From The Black Lagoon slot the symbols include a Scuba Tank, Camera, Knife and Binoculars as the low value symbols. Meanwhile, the high value symbols are made up of the protagonists Lucas, Carl, David and Kay, with the heroine giving you 1.25, 12.5 or 37.5 times your stake for three, four or five in a winning combination. The game title is the Wild and substitutes for other symbols, except the Free Spins symbol, to create more winning opportunities.

Bonuses

While there may only be a 7,500 coin jackpot, the bonuses still add some zest to your slots experience.

Bonus Name Bonus Explanation
Sticky Wilds

You can land up to three randomly triggered Wilds and when they land they become Sticky.

Free Spins

Depending on how many bonus symbols you score, you’ll receive a different number of Free Spins, after seeing the creature grab Kay and take her to his lagoon in an opulent intro sequence. Three symbols award 10 Free Spins, four give you 15 and five yields 20.

Free Spins – shoot the target

During the Free Spins, you’ll notice a Target symbol appear, though not on every spin. Whenever it appears you need to shoot Gill-man and collect these targets for different rewards:

  • Shoot up to two Target symbols and any Wild will remain Sticky, plus you hook a Re-spin.
  • Fire three to five Target symbols and the first Wild is triggered. Then the position to the left of the Wilds spreads out as an Expanding Wild, and you get a Re-spin.
  • Collect six to eight Target symbols and the Wilds spread out evenly, plus you earn a Re-spin.
  • Collect all nine Target symbols and you score 10 extra Free Spins and Wilds spread from left to right across the reels.
