Creature from the Black Lagoon

This slot is based on the old 1954 horror movie Creature from the Black Lagoon. Thanks to a collaboration between NetEnt and the film studio Universal, the game developers have been able to use an original movie poster for the movie as inspiration for the graphics, which gives this game a lovely 1950s America retro-vibe.

Wild symbol

There is one standard wild symbol in the base game, but if you make it to free spins mode it can transform into an extra powerful wild symbol. Each free spins level have its own unique special power for the transformed wild symbol. (See below)

Free spins mode with monster hunt feature and powerful wilds

If you get at least three free spins symbols in the base game, you will be awarded with free spins. Three free spins symbols give you 10 free spins, four symbols yield 15 free spins, and five symbols will give you 20 free spins.

The free spins mode is inspired by the scene in the movie where Kay is kidnapped by the Creature of the Black Lagoon.

If a reticle (crosshair) appears on the fifth reel when you are in free spins mode, it is your chance to try to shoot the Creature and free Kay. After the shoot, information about any injury to the Creature will be displayed in the right bottom corner of the screen. Each time you manage to hit the Creature, it will grow weaker. This determines the level for the free spins.

  • Level 1

    When you are playing at level one, the standard wild symbol can become a Sticky Wild and give you a re-spin.

  • Level 2

    On level 2, the standard wild symbol can become a Spreading Wild that expands horizontally in one direction and gives you a re-spin.

  • Level 3

    When you have reached the third level, you can get help from a Spreading Wild that expands horizontally both directions and gives you a re-spin.

  • Level 4

    At this level, you have a chance to be awarded another ten free spins. The wild symbol is the same as for level three.
