The Angler is the latest in a long line of 3D Slots from Betsoft. This 20 payline game has both a Free Spins feature and an innovative Bonus game in which you can reel in extra credits courtesy of Otis (the Mustachio'd Fisherman). Overall the game is good solid fun - it's not going to trouble the likes of IGT or Net Ent's best in terms of play-ability, but the graphics and sound are great - worth a spin! Read our full review below.
Slots Temple visitor, meet Otis, Otis meet Slots Temple visitor... If you like hanging around on small boats with big guys who have moustaches then The Angler could be just the Slot you've been looking for! We can't help but think Otis looks a little like Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreation, but that's probably just us... Made by Betsoft The Angler follows in the footsteps of many other 3D games the company for produced over the years.
The Nuts and Bolts
So, as we delve into the tackle box (so to speak) of this game what do we find? Well, it's a 20 line game with five reels. Covering all lines your minimum bet is 0.20 and you can go all the way up to £100 in a single spin if you desire (take the coin size up to £1 and go for x5 bets per line in order to achieve this). The highest value icon is Otis himself (get x5 of him on any payline and you'll win x 1,750 your bet) and keep a look out for Wild symbols which are Octopuses holding 'Wild' signs (obviously).
The music in the game is pretty calm and low key, which is nice change if you've been playing a lot of the more 'hectic' Slots, in fact, parts of the soundtrack put us in mind of the rather dubious 80s ambient hit, Orinoco Flow by Enya (listen to both and tell us we're wrong!) When you spin the reels you get a pleasing underwater bubbling sound - with all this tranquillity you could be out on the lake yourself!
One last thing - make sure you have your sea legs with you when you look at the paytable, it slowly sways from side to side, when studying it we felt the need to pop a sea-sickness tablet...
Free Spins can be activated in this game by getting x3 Scatter Symbols (oysters with pearls) anywhere on reels 3, 4 and 5 - you can also go on to win addition Free Spins within the Free Spin mode. During Free Spins the Octopus Wild symbols become 'Clingy' and remain in position - great news the longer they 'Cling around' the better for you!
Time to Fish Bonus Game
To activate the bonus round you'll need to get x3 Bonus symbols on reels 1, 2 and 3 - once you are in to the feature it becomes a test of your fishing skills as you attempt to reel the fish in or failing that you simply hoick them out of the water and into the boat. It goes without saying that the more fish you catch the more money you win, so you better hope you are more Vince than Howard when it comes to your angling skills (apologies obscure Might Boosh reference).
You'll be awarded 100 credits as soon as you enter the bonus round, so even if you are out of luck you won't go away empty handed.
Double Up Game
The Double Up feature allows you to live dangerously and gamble half or all of your winnings as many times as you like. You just need to Select Gamble all or Gamble 50% and then bet on either heads or tails. A correct guess will see you double your initial bet.
