The Angler by BetSoft
Do you fish? Would you consider it a sport? Well, there might be a way to bring it to Olympics standards but that may take years. Before then, let us all agree that it is an activity that many people have enjoyed for years. Better still consider the many fathers who use fishing to bond with their children. Wouldn’t it be great if a slot game was dedicated to this age-old traditional pass-time?
The ideal game has been designed and released by Betsoft. The Angler is the story of a mustacho fisherman, called, Otis. If you are keen, you might easily notice the size difference between Otis and the fishing boat he is riding, a result of quality use of graphics. There is no doubt about the top quality graphics used and the promise of great awards if one plays
Special features & functions
Think of any living thing you would encounter on a fishing trip; green fish, red fish, turtle, small shark and the angler are the high-value symbols of the game. Playing cards J, A, K, and Q represent the low-value symbols you will encounter in the slot. The wild symbol of the game is the octopus and you expect it to make an appearance on reel number 2, 3, 4, and 5. The most straightforward feature you will encounter on the slots is the wild replacing all other symbols on the reels when it appears. Time to fish is another feature which is triggered when a minimum of 3 scatter symbols appear on the first, second and third reels.
The free spins feature will be activated when a minimum of 3 scatter symbols appear on reels 3, 4 or five. Take note of the action of the octopus freezing on the screen as this means more free spins being triggered. Would you take the risk of doubling your wins or losing them all? Well, the double up feature gives players this opportunity and if you are feeling lucky; why now?
How to play
When all the 20 paylines in the game are activated, a player stands a chance of winning impressive prizes, but that is the theory part. Starting a session of play begins with setting a bet of choice. There is a button on the screen with which to place a bet but it must be within the range of $0.20 upwards up to $100.
With such a huge range, this game surely is open to players of all financial ability. An autoplay function allows players to spin the reels even when they are physically not operating the slots and this will come in handy when you have to do two tasks at the same time.
Have you ever held a fishing rod in your hands? The answer to this question will not determine how much you will enjoy yourself playing the Angler. The use of 3D to create the graphics is impressive and so is the chance to win big.
