Reel em in! Lobster Potty is a slot machine from Barcrest / SG Gaming with a very familiar feel. The slot uses five reels and four bonus games to award massive online prizes, and jackpots of up to £500 on the Ladbrokes and Coral version of the slot. Reel em in! Lobster Potty is very similar to Reel King with the way the slot offers the bonus, as well as the gamble that is on offer on the FOBT version of the slot.
The slot has five reels and twenty paylines, with a Big Bet game and four exciting bonus features including Reel Em In, Lobster Pots, Big Bite and Mega Bite bonuses.
This light-hearted and humorously themed slot machine is bright and colourful in its design and can be played in both landscape and portrait mode on your mobile and tablet. The reels include various images of fish and are set against a blue backdrop to make it appear as though the reels are in the ocean. Above the reels there is a fisherman in a boat, with his fishing line cast in the water ready to catch something good. The reel symbols are very clear and stand out against the light-blue background, making Reel em in! Lobster Potty easy to play.
The fun starts when you trigger one of the bonus features. The Reel Em In Bonus feature is activated when five sandy backgrounds appear on all five reels (the same as Reel King). Once triggered, reels from one to five can become active and contain cash values, blanks and boot symbols. The boot symbol will shut down the reel. All reels will remain active until they are shut down. Once the feature is over, the total value is tallied and awarded.
Reel em in! Lobster Potty Pots Bonus
The Lobster Pots Bonus feature on Reel em in! Lobster Potty is triggered in the same way as Reel Em In. In this feature, only the centre reel will spin. Once it stops it will highlight 1 of 3 lobsters: Gold, Silver, or Bronze. The pot that is associated with the lobster will be won. Online the pot values are multipliers, in the bookies on the £500 jackpot slot, the gold pot will be fixed at £500, with the bronze and silver accumulating until they are won.
If you want to wrap your claws around even more winning chances, you can play in Big Bet mode. In this mode, you can increase your bet to get a series of five linked spins with some exciting extras. Among these extras include additional wilds added to reels three, four and five. There is also a Big Bite Bonus feature, during which a shark adds 2x multiplier wilds to the reels as well as a Mega Bite Bonus feature where more wilds are added that are linked to 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x and even 10x multipliers. Big Bets are a common addition to Barcrest / SG Gaming slots, both online and in the bookies. For the higher stake, you will be awarded with additional bonuses as well as a higher RTP (return to player). You need to weigh-up whether it is worth the additional stake, especially if your gaming balance is low. In the bookies the Big Bets still have the same jackpot restriction; capped at £500, however you can bet up to £50 on the Big Bets, so you will need to decide if the stake warrants the low jackpot. When I play Big Bets on slots in the bookies, it is very rare I will play more than £30, and usually stick to £20.
