Alaskan Fishing Slots Game Overview
Alaskan Fishing is an impressive looking slot game, with all five reels enclosed in a wooden frame in front of a blue lake and a pine forest in the distance. Even the buttons used in the game have been given a fishy theme. The symbols are even more impressive when they are part of a winning combination, as the salmon leap from the water and the eagle swoops down from the sky. The sound effects are mostly soothing music, but there is a louder burst with every win. This slot game is a Microgaming creation, and with the five reels, has also 243 ways to win.
Stacked Wilds Can Appear
The symbols in Alaskan Fishing include Fishing Boats, bi-planes, eagles, Grizzly bears eating a salmon, and a variety of fish.
The Alaskan Fishing Logo is the Wild symbol, and can be substituted for any other symbol in a winning combination, except for the Scatter symbol and the happy Fisherman. Wild symbols can appear stacked in the regular base game as well as during the Free spins feature, and can offer great payouts like the Alaskan Fishing base game jackpot of 500 coins. The Wild also shows an animated sequence in the event of a win.
Free Spins Round Triggered By the Scatters
The Scatter symbol is the fisherman’s Tackle Box, and the appearance of two of them on the reels will lead to an instant payout. If you land three or more Scatters anywhere on the reels, the Free Spins bonus round will be activated. You will be awarded fifteen free spins, and all wins made during this bonus round will be doubled. The Free spins round can be retriggered by the appearance of three more Scatters on the reels. The Fly Fishing bonus round can also be activated during the Free spins bonus round, and if the Fly Fishing bonus and the Free Spins feature are activated at the same time, then the Fly Fishing bonus round will play out first, and after that the Free spins round will start.
Fly Fishing Bonus Round
The Fly fishing bonus in Alaskan Fishing is activated when you land the smiling Fisherman on reels one and five at the same time. In this bonus round, you will be taken to a second screen and shown nine possible fishing spots. You will be asked to choose five of them, and given five chances to hook a fish. Each spot comes with a different prize, and every successful bite will award you an instant bonus prize ranging from twice to fifteen times your original wager, depending on the size of the fish you caught. You could end up hooking a tiny fish or a huge sea monster.
Alaskan Fishing will attract all slots players because it offers a wide range of wagering options. Apart from the base game jackpot, there is the possibility of a large payout in the Fly Fishing bonus round, and the potential of a huge reward in the Free spins round.
This is a fairly simple game to play, and can be played for free until you are ready to wager real money. You can select a coin, and then spin the reels to see what combinations appear or what features are triggered, and there are buttons to adjust your bet or to set the autoplay.
