Theme and Graphics
Lucky Angler is set on a cold frozen lake with fish swimming behind the background. The graphics and animations of the game are eye-catching and fun especially when a wild comes out on the reels, the wild symbol shows a fish getting caught with a fish hook as it swims away. The icy cold theme of the game tells that it is located somewhere in the arctic where fishes swim freely without getting all frozen. The characters that represent the reels are water creatures that are designed in a funny way which makes the game even more engaging. The game is also complemented by the soothing background sounds of the icy cold water.
Lucky Angler offers lots of possibility of a whopping jackpot as long as you can endure the chill while the water creatures align to hit winning combos on the icy cold reels. In this game, you will be entertained by cute fishes, lobsters, and crabs that are just begging to get caught. The reels are represented by Artic-style graphics, letters, and numbers that need to be aligned on specific combinations for players to qualify for payouts.
The low-value symbols are represented in the reels by the common card symbols such as K, Q, J, A and 10 that are formed in ice while the high-values are represented by red, blue and yellow fishes, a green lobster, and crab hiding on a boot. The wilds on this game are represented by a small goldfish on a hook, while a small school of mudfish represents the Scatter symbol.
The gameplay of Lucky Angler is very much easier compared to catching fishes in real life. To be quite honest, although fishing is fun, it can be a bit boring sometimes with all the waiting, especially without knowing if you’ll catch one. At Lucky Angler, fishing for payouts is just a spin in the reels plus its extra fun and engaging. Before starting the fun, players must place a wager on the game and preset the game set to their preferred mode of the game.

Feature and Bonus
The special features of Lucky Angler are quite basic with the usual scatter, wilds and free spins like in the other games produced by NetEnt. But unlike some games, Lucky Angler is a “win both ways” game which makes it an easy game to play and win at the same time since it pays from left to right and vice versa in the game.
The wild in this game is represented by a goldfish in a hook. Like any other wilds, this symbol will blend in with the other symbols except for the scatter to make more winning combos. The great thing about Lucky Angler’s wild is that it’s a stick wild which means that it will stay frozen on the reels until there’s nothing more to substitute. The wild symbol, however, only appears on the reels 2 and 4 on the main game while it appears on the 3 middle reels during the free spin rounds.
The Scatter symbol will take you to the free spins round but you need at least 3 of them on the reels to get there. The symbol is represented by a small group of mudfish. Having 3 of them on the reels awards 10 free spins on the game, 15 free spins for 4 scatters, and 20 free spins for 5 scatters on the reels.
For a medium variance game, Lucky Angler pays out fair. With a Return to Player percentage of 96.4%, players can expect to win a decent payout from this game. Lucky players get to win too as much as 300 000 coins at the end of the day.
