How to Play Creature From The Black Lagoon Slot
The Creature From The Black Lagoon casino game is a video slot based on the 1954 monster film classic, developed by NetEnt. It has 5 reels and 20 fixed paylines, with bets starting from 20p. You can unlock free spins and benefit from Wild features if you have some lucky spins. The main character in the game is the half-man-half-creature “Gill Man” who has captured one of the explorers, Kay. The other characters on the reels are the explorers trying to rescue her. Unlock the bonus round to defeat the creature in this adventure of a casino game.
If you’re not familiar with the original film, the story is that the creature from the black lagoon has captured explorer Kay and taken her to its lair. The lair can be accessed in the free spins round, which you will find out about later.
The Creature’s Features
There are two big special features within the Creature From The Black Lagoon slot which could help you to make more wins from fewer spins.
The Wild symbols can appear anywhere on the reels and substitute for all standard symbols. The symbol is green with ‘Creature From the Black Lagoon’ written on it. What’s special about the Wilds is that they act as Sticky Wilds, meaning they will stay put on the reels for a re-spin. If more Wilds appear during your re-spin, the re-spin feature will end when there are no more Wilds on the reels.
The free spins symbol resembles frozen blocks of ice and should you land three or more of them anywhere on the reels, you will activate the bonus.
Landing 3 free spins symbols will award you 10 free spins, 4 symbols award 15 spins, and 5 symbols will give you 20 free spins.
A target symbol can appear on reel 5, and when it does, the creature appears on the screen and gets shot. You will see a health meter for the creature on the bottom right of your game. The more the creature deteriorates, the higher the level you climb, and the more features unfold in your game.
- Level 1 – all Wild symbols which appear will be Sticky Wilds which stay for one re-spin
- Level 2 – Wild symbols will spread horizontally one position to the left and remain for one re-spin
- Level 3 – Wilds spread one position to the left and right, staying there for one re-spin
- Level 4 – after collecting 9 target symbols, you will activate an additional 10 free spins
Your total win from the free spins feature will be added to your balance after it is complete.
Creature From The Black Lagoon Slot Gameplay
If you are looking for a vintage expedition, this game may be the one for you. From the tone of the colours to the retro equipment and the design of the characters, there is an amicable dated look and feel which fit the theme of the original film. Made in partnership with Universal Studios, it was bound to be a good homage to the film noir, and the creature looks just as frightening in the game as it did originally.
Prepare for the Expedition
Preparation is key on an adventure like this. The 20 paylines are fixed so you don’t have to worry about those. You can increase the bet level between 1 and 10 which will add extra weight to each of the paylines. The value of your bet will increase as you increase the bet level.
You can also adjust the coin value, which is the value per bet line, depending on how much you wish to stake. The minimum value is 1p per bet line, increasing up to 50p.
The total bet per spin will be displayed on the black and grey banner beneath the spin button, so you can check you are happy with your bet before you spin.
Once you’re all set, commence the rescue mission with the big green spin button.
Winning lines in the Creature from The Black Lagoon slot are played from left to right, and you must match a minimum of three of the same symbols on the paylines to get a reward.
The symbols with the highest value are the characters themselves. Kay, the captive, is worth the most on the reels, paying out a maximum of 750 times your bet level for a five-of-a-kind match.
David, the shirtless explorer, can pay out a maximum of 600 times the bet level for five on a payline across the reels. Carl, the white-haired cameraman, can pay out up to 500 times the bet if you match five-of-a-kind. Lucas with the cigar in his mouth offers a maximum payout of 400 times your bet, should you get a five-Lucas-match across a payline.
The lower-value icons are the characters’ accompanying tools. The binoculars and the extinguisher can pay out up to 125 times your bet amount for landing five-of-a-kind. The camera and the sword offer up to 100 times the bet for a five-match.
