The Angler Slot Video Review

The Angler Free Spins

Free Spins in Betsoft’s The Angler are given in Free Spins Mode. This occurs when 3 Scatter Icons appear anywhere on the 3rd, 4th, or 5th reels. During Free Spins Mode, additional free spins can be won by way of more Scatter Icons appearing on the reels.

Whenever Wilds, represented by the Octopus Wild Icons, appear on the reels, they become Clingy Wilds and remain in place during the remaining free spins.

The Angler is a video slot by Betsoft inspired by sport fishing in theme, and perhaps by popular cartoons such as Finding Nemo in graphic style with cute cartoon characters. You’ll accompany a fisherman named Otis (who stands to the left-hand side of the reels) on a quay above a crystal-clear freshwater lake with hills in the background to reel in some great bonuses and wins. Whenever you get a win, all the symbols making up that win will be contained in air bubbles that pop and Otis will cheer.

Symbols and Features

The Angler, by Betsoft, is a 5-reel, 3-row video slot with 20 pay lines. The user interface includes the following clickables and metres:

  • Volume
  • Game settings (BGM, SFX, Disable Expandicon, Turbo Play)
  • Choose coin (0.02 – 1.00)
  • Select lines
  • Bet per line (1 – 5)
  • Win
  • Max bet
  • Spin
  • Double up
  • Autoplay (5 – 100)
  • Pay table

Standard icons/symbols on the reels include 4 letters (low-paying ones) and 5 sea creatures (medium-paying ones). The highest paying combination of standard symbols is achieved when you get 5 Otis Icons. The pay-out is 1,250 coins.

Special symbols include the Octopus Wild, the Bonus Icon (bucket of fish and fishing rod), and the Scatter Icon (Free Spins). The Wild Icon becomes a clingy wild in Free Spins Mode.

Turning to Special Modes, there are 2 – Free Spins Mode and the Bonus Game.

  1. Free Spins Mode – This is triggered by 3 Scatter Icons on reels 3, 4, and 5. During this mode, additional free spins can be achieved. Also, any wilds that appear on the reels automatically become Clingy Wilds and stay there for the entire duration of the Free Spins Mode.
  2. Time to Fish Bonus Game – When you get 3 bonus symbols on any of reels 1, 2, or 3, you unlock the fishing bonus game. A little animation ensues in which Otis jumps into his fishing boat and coasts out to the centre of the lake. Here, you’ll play a ‘pick n’ click’ game in which you have to choose between ‘pull’ and ‘reel’. The more fish you catch, the bigger the wins at the end of the round. But missing 3 times ends the bonus game. In this case, your wins are calculated and you return to the base game.

There is one more feature worth some attention – the Double Up feature. You’ll play a game of ‘heads or tails’ with a coin on which you can bet either 50% or all of your winnings. There’s no limit to how many times you can do this. This one’s for the big risk-takers!
