Creature From the Black Lagoon is an online video slot featuring 5 reels and 20 fixed paylines, realised by NetEnt in collaboration with Universal Studios. The cooperation was necessary to bring onto the reels a game completely based on the 1954 classic movie.

Fans of the original movie will relish seeing the characters and scenes from the iconic monster horror film as they appear on the slot screen, rendered by impressive graphics with a vintage touch.

Don’t miss the intro! A peaceful song from the film plays softly in the background, while a more intense movie-orchestra refrain plays out whenever a winning combination is completed, which might sometimes also accompanied by a quote from the film.

This game is packed with innovative features that make it in some ways a little more complicated and therefore perhaps intriguing than many other online slot games, such as for example the 3 different types of Wilds.

This is all complemented by a remarkable free spin round with twenty on offer, which could be even more if the creature is successfully killed before the round.

Important Symbols

The game logo represents the 3 wilds, one standard and two spreading wilds. They are distinguished by colour, and can appear randomly anywhere on the reels in the base game, and replace all symbols excluding Free Spin symbols and Target symbols.

In the base game and in the free spin round, Wild symbols will behave as a sticky Wild and will remain on the reels for re-spins or until the free spins end.

The scatter symbol is denoted by the Free Spin icon, which can appear in any position on the reels. It doesn’t need to land on a payline to offer instant payouts. Getting at least 2 scatters will grant win amounts, whereas three or more will trigger the spectacular free spin round in the game.

Finally, the Target symbol which appears in the bonus round is key to progressing through the round, unlocking Spreading Wilds and re-spins in the various level.

Winning Potential

The highest paying symbol is Kay, which will reward players with 750 coins (multiplied by the bet level) when 5 of these appear on a payline. There is a great chance to accumulate huge payouts during the free spin round, especially since the sticky wild feature is in play.

Bonus Features

The free spin bonus can total up to 20 free spins. In this round, a target symbol can appear anywhere on the fifth reel only. When this happens, the prehistoric, half-human creature (Gill-man) will appear on the screen and get shot.

A health meter at the bottom of the screen will display the health status of the Creature. With each hit, the health of the creature will get worse and various outcomes can occur. There are 4 levels to the health meter.

During the level one, the Sticky Wilds are in place and will hold their position for one re-spin. Level 2 offers a spreading wild, expands across the reels from the first position on the left. This is experienced when 3 to 5 Target symbols are accumulated.

The third level, which is reached when 6 to 8 Target icons are collected, presents the second spreading wild, which remains in place for one re-spin. Finally, once at level 4, collecting 9 Target symbols will award an additional 10 free spins.
