- Barcrest’s new slot has bonus games galore and some decent prizes
- Innovative Big Bet mode activates extra wilds and more chances to win
Online slots developer, Barcrest has rolled out a new slot game called Reel ’Em In Lobster Potty. And with five reels and 20 paylines, not to mention a massive four bonus features, Barcrest’s new offering can land you a lot of coins.
Playing in Big Bet mode can activate additional wilds as well as wild multipliers, which can multiply your stake by up to 10 times. With a minimum cost of just 20p per play and a maximum of £500, this mode might well be worth a play if you’re in it for the big bucks.
Angling for prizes
Reel ’Em In Lobster Potty has a relatively simple and somewhat light-hearted design, with a basic backdrop of ocean blue teeming with cartoon-style fish, spread across the reels. The five reels also include all the classic symbols, such as playing cards.
The game boasts two main bonus features: the Reel ’Em In Bonus feature and the Lobster Pots Bonus feature. To trigger the former, the player must land a spin wherein all five reels include sand, instead of sea, as the background.
After doing so, between one and five reels will be start to spin. They will land blanks (which have no function), fish (which will give the player an instant cash prize), or a boot (which will de-activate the reel upon which it lands). Prizes are then added together, and the player will be returned to the main game.
The latter – the Lobster Pots Bonus feature – is also triggered by the sand-based backdrops. But instead of one to five reels spinning, only the middle one will. When it stops, a bronze, silver, or gold lobster will be displayed.
Depending on which lobster appears, the player will receive the bronze, silver, or gold prize – which can result in the player being rewarded an amount that is up to 500 times their initial stake.
Big Bet mode
But if that just isn’t enough, you can turn on Big Bet mode. This linked string of five spins will cost more to activate but can also win you bigger prizes than the regular-mode game. Such prizes include additional wilds bound to the third, fourth, and fifth reels, and the launch of a further two, smaller, bonus rounds.
These are the Big Bite and the Mega Bite Bonus features. The former includes a shark that applies 2x multiplier wilds, and the latter will add 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, and 10x multipliers into the oceanic mix.
But that’s not all the Big Bet mode can do for the player; it increase the return-to-player rate considerably. For example, playing the regular-mode game at £2 or above means a return-to-player rate of 96%, but this is increased to 98% in the Big Bet mode.
If you’re considering playing the new title it’s worth considering that, while it offers plenty of multipliers and additional bonus features, it doesn’t give out any free spins. Does that matter? That’s for players to discover themselves.
Barcrest supplies a number of leading online casinos so, once live, there’s every likelihood it could be playable at the likes of Casumo Casino and Power Spins Casino.
