Creature from the Black Lagoon Slot

Crafting together a game based on a 1954 American black and white 3D monster and horror film is probably a gutsy move to make. After all, one such as Creature from the Black Lagoon is considered to be a classic by many people. However, NetEnt have managed to pull together something which is altogether very impressive, thanks to some great collaboration with Universal Studios. The original film was produced by William Alland and directed by Jack Arnold, and has become something of a cult film within the monster horror genre, thanks in part to the starring roles provided by Richard Carlson, Julie Adams and Richard Denning. And it translates from the big screen to an online video slot beautifully, thanks to much of the design skills from NetEnt. Of course, like the other games by this developer which are done in collaboration with a film studio, it opens up with an introductory video package before taking you to the reels, which presents a murky sort of feel as they sit atop the black lagoon in question. What mysteries could lurk in there?

Don't Swim in the Lagoon!

The game itself takes place on a standard five reel and three row layout, with the title of the film scrawled nicely across the top. This offers up a fairly usual interface for gamers to spin the reels of, and the icons included on these reels are all film-relative. Therefore, you’ve got four different main characters in the form of Julie Adams as Kay Lawrence, Richard Carlson as Dr. David Reed, Antonio Moreno as Dr. Carl Maia and Nestor Paiva as Lucas. These are joined by items used by the cast in the film, such as a set of binoculars to search for the creature, a sharp knife to attack it with, a camera to try and get some snapshots of it, and an underwater oxygen tank to go for a diving hunt of it.

Joining these reels, rows and icons, NetEnt have also added a total of 20 separate pay lines in to the game, and these have been fixed in place, so customisation is not possible. However, players can change around the bet they place per round, starting by using the arrow buttons at either side of the ‘Coin Value’ box. This allows you to adjust the value of this between €0.01 and €0.50 per line. In addition, altering the ‘Level’ amount from between one and 10 will see your wager increase even more, and therefore allows players a maximum overall bet amount of €100 per spin. This can easily be reached with the included ‘Max Bet’ button.

The Creature is Coming for You

The reason why this game is so great is not solely down to its vintage looking reels and icons, or due simply to the inclusion of a creepy and mystery-filled soundtrack. Instead, its special features contribute a lot to this factor. This begins first of all with its wild symbol..or rather, it’s wild symbols. You see, there are more than one. These can appear randomly anywhere on the reels during the main game, and they will substitute for every other symbol except for freespins and target symbols. In the main game and freespins, wilds act as sticky wilds, and in that instance, they’ll remain on the reels for a single re-spin. In addition to the standard wild, there are two different spreading wilds as well, which will spread, as the name suggests, to turn other symbols wild on the reels.

The scatter icon of the game is the ‘Free Spin‘ emblazoned symbol, and three or more of these symbols appearing randomly anywhere on the reels during the main game only, will trigger the freespins round. Three of them provide 10 freespins, four of them offer up 15 freespins and five of them will give you a total of 20 freespins altogether. Additional freespins can be won during the round, and if you collect target symbols, you’ll receive one of the two aforementioned spreading wilds or 10 additional freespins.

To Summarise

Creature… is one of those games that may not look so appealing from the offset, especially if you’ve never watched the actual film. However, we’d advise any avid video slot gamer to try it out and see if it doesn’t call out to you after the first spin. It’s wonderfully crafted, providing amazing graphics and animations as well as sufficient additional features to make game play all that more interesting. Not only that, but it’s got a great and eerie soundtrack, and it should provide an entertaining game for any player.
