The most common way to catch lobsters is with a pot, and the Reel Em in Lobster Potty slot by Scientific Games is based on a theme of fishing using these pots and other methods. It has great graphics with well-developed characters and different types of sea creatures, and even the card rank symbols look solid. In terms of gameplay, it has a low-to-medium volatility, and it's a title that will appeal to a variety of types of players.
Game Format and Layout
The format that this game has is the basic one for video slots that uses five reels and three rows. A total of 20 paylines pay from left-to-right only in this game. Scientific Games has set up the betting to be pretty easy too, and you choose various bet sizes for each payline. You can pick to wager between $0.01 and a whooping $25 on each of those paylines, and that corresponds to total bet sizes that go from $0.20 to $500 each. Some sites will limit the maximum bet size to be a lower amount, but the point is that you'll have virtually any bet size available that you want.
All of the wins we describe here are based on bet sizes of $0.20 per spin. You'll need to scale the wins up based on your exact bet size.
The setting for the game takes place out on the ocean with a boat floating on top of the wager and the symbols on the reels under the water's surface. You'll have a random chance for reels to fill with sand, which means the background becomes completely full of a sand texture. This background is really important because it helps to trigger both of the major bonus features in this game: the Reel Em In Bonus and the Lobster Pots Bonus.
Reel Em In Bonus Feature
In this feature, you'll get between one and five activated reels at random, and those activated reels will all spin together to show the same symbols on each. You'll pick up wins based on the fish you catch, and this will continue until you get a boot on a reel. A boot removes that reel from play for the bonus feature until there are no more reels available. At that point, the winnings are added up and are awarded to you.
In this feature, the gold fish is worth 5x, and the sword fish is worth 2x. You'll get 1x for the gold angel fish and 0.6x for the clown fish. The red snapper and kissy fish pay 0.4x and 0.2x, respectively.
Lobster Pots Bonus Round
The main bonus feature in this game is based on the lobster pots themselves from the title of the slot, and you have a chance to win one of three jackpot prizes. You can pick up 100x for the gold pot, 40x for the silver and 20x for the bronze. The pick is chosen by spinning the middle reel only, which will have the three different-colored lobsters on it. The one it lands on is the one you get.
This game has a wild symbol as well. It appears on the second, third and fourth reels only. This symbol does not get its own payouts because it doesn't appear on all of the reels. However, what it will do is give you better odds of hitting winning combinations because you'll be able to use them to get wins that you would have otherwise missed.
Winning Combinations and Payouts
The Reel Em In symbol is the top-paying regular symbol in the game. It pays 5x for five of a kind. You can also score 2x for five of the orange fish or 1x for five of the yellow one. After that comes the card rank symbols, which pay 0.6x for five of the green A or five of the red K. You can earn 0.4x for five of a kind in the purple Q or blue J as well.
Big Bet Mode
This game also has a big bet mode available that gives a better RTP. It requires a larger wager per spin, but you get better regular payouts and much larger wins in the bonus features. It's recommended that you use this option if it fits inside of your bankroll management strategy.
The Reel Em In Lobster Potty slot by Scientific Games has a much different feel than what you'd expect from a fishing-based game. The look is great, and the gameplay is very strong as well. It's a title that has a balanced style of gameplay that will appeal to a lot of types of players, but the bonus feature selection is a bit bland. Overall, this game is best for players who like relaxing, slow-paced gameplay.
