Alaskan Fishing Slot Review (Microgaming)

Love fishing, hate water? Love money, hate putting in effort to earn it? Well, the Alaskan Fishing slot machine from Microgaming may be right up your street. This game looks gorgeous, and it has a decent payout rate too. We can’t fault it!

Alaskan Fishing Slot Overview

How to Play Alaskan Fishing Slot Machine

There are five reels and 243 paylines on the Alaskan Fishing slot. Providing you are betting on all lines (which we recommend), the minimum bet is 30p. The maximum bet is £15. This is a low volatility slot machine. The house edge is 3%. This, essentially, means that you are going to be enjoying a fair number of wins.

This is a beautiful slot machine. It is a bit of a weird theme, mainly because the features do not tie into the actual fishing theme, but it is something that works anyway. The images are very detailed and 100% unique to one another. It is clearly aimed at those slot machine players that love fishing. If you fall into that category, then you are probably going to love this slot. Just try not to expect anything too special on the gameplay front, at least if you are looking for something that is relevant to fishing.

As with most Microgaming slot machines, this one is easy to play. All you need to do is set how much you want to bet and away and you go. Now that we think about it, this is a slot machine that has clearly been designed to pull in people who have never played a slot before. We must say, Microgaming has done a terrific job in this regard.

Bonus Rounds & In-Game Features

There are three features in the game that are just waiting to ‘hook’ you in. (see what we did there?).

  1. Fly Fishing Bonus: The main feature is the ‘Fly Fishing Bonus’. I know that we said that bonuses didn’t really tie into theme of the game, but this comes close. It is a feature that you will find on many other slot machines out there, so we do not really class it as something ‘special’. We digress.
  2. With this feature, a Fisherman symbol can appear on any reel. When this occurs, the ‘Fly Fishing Bonus’ will pop up. You pick five different symbols. You will receive a multiplier of between 2x and 15x, which is not too bad at all.
  3. Free Spins Feature: There is also a free spins feature. To trigger this, you will need at least three ‘free spins’ symbols on the reels. If you get this, you will instantly be awarded with 15 free spins. During these free spins, all of your wins will be doubled. You will be able to trigger more free spins during this game mode. This is a feature that we love and we would love if more casino game providers allowed you to extent the number of spins you can receive!

Wilds appear in the game. They can substitute for all symbols in the Alaskan Fishing slot machine except the free spins and bonus fisherman. Pretty standard stuff here.

Alaskan Fishing Mobile Slot Machine

We could bleat on and on about how great Microgaming are when it comes to mobile slot machines. We could, but we won’t. All you need to know is that the Alaskan Fishing mobile slot is one of the best games that they have ever produced. Obviously, it would not be feasible for us to test it out on every phone and tablet out there.

However, we tried it out on the main ones, and the game is so well optimised. It is basically like playing a mini version of the desktop slot in your hand. Hey, what do you know? We managed to bleat on about it anyway.

Summary – What Do We Think?

If you like your slot machines with a bit of simplicity, then we see no reason why you would not love the Alaskan Fishing Slot machine. We feel that this is one of the best games that you can use the introduce you to the crazy world of slots. You will learn to love all of those free bonuses the game tosses in your direction!
