While we’ve always struggled to understand the fascination of fishing, undertaking this activity in the wilds of Alaska does indeed offer a measure of adventure and possible danger; Microgaming have taken on the task of bringing chilly fishing to the casino with the Alaskan Fishing online slot, a game which makes you feel cold even when you’re sitting indoors.
Alaskan Fishing features 243 ways to win over it’s five reels and that means standard paylines are not used here; you can win just by landing matching symbols in adjacent reels. Those reels are set underwater and on the surface we can see a snow-capped mountain through a gap in the tree line.
The fishing tackle box triggers the free spins, the fisherman activates the bonus game and the Alaskan Fishing logo is a stacked wild.
Alaskan Fishing Bonus Features
The Alaskan Fishing wild symbol is stacked in both the base game and the bonus game and this means the symbols will sit on top of each other, creating extra chances for winning combos.
Fly Fishing Bonus
You’l need to land the fisherman on reels one and five to trigger this bonus game and then you’ll get to pick five posts in the river to fish. A random multiplier is then applied to the winning amount of between 2x and 15x.
This is where the big money resides and to activate this round you need to land three, four or five of the fishing tackle bonus symbols anywhere on the reels.
Fifteen free spins are now yours for the taking and anything you win will be doubled during this feature. You can re-trigger more spins from this round and you can also trigger the Fly Fishing bonus from here.
Alaskan Fishing Online Slots Playing Tips
The paylines are fixed so you can’t really promote your chances of getting into the bonus games; keep your stake as high as you can though and it will pay off when those free spins are triggered. The win amounts in the Fly Fishing feature are also based on your total stake.
While not particularly graphically outstanding, all the animals look good and this is an entertaining slot to play. The background music is quite relaxing until you land a win and then it surprises you with it’s energy.
