Somehow, I had missed writing a review on this favourite slot game of mine, or perhaps I had wanted to know more about the game first before writing something on it. That's my style anyway. I don't simply write any review just for the sake of writing it. I tend to put everything that I have on it, into it, into my review, even if it may take quite a while in getting there, as in this case.
This Creature from the Black Lagoon game may have originated from a movie of the same name, I don't know for sure, but it sure does look like it. Like all creatures and monsters movies, they can send chills down your spine whilst watching it, but in a game, nah, you don't get all that, but you do get lots of entertainment from it. Yeah, lots of fun, lots of thrills, lots of eager anticipations, and lots of happiness and disappointments too. At the right time, on the right day, this creature can give you plenty of nice wins, with occasional huge wins, but on the wrong day, it'll probably just eat you up, just like any monstrous creature of the deep would, hehehe. Oh, yeah, I've had my share of both being eaten and feasting too, all thanks to the creature and all those wonderful sticky Wilds. Just look at all my posted screenshots up there and you can imagine what I mean.
There may not be any Expanding Wilds nor any stacked Wilds in the game, but those sticky Wilds can do wonders nonetheless. They can come in the base game and they can come in the free spins game, and this is where you would want them to appear as many as possible, to create lots of nice big wins within one free spins feature game itself! Couple that with an extra 10 free spins, which can only occur once in any free spins game, and you can expect huge wins of over 1000x your total bet amount! The biggest possible win is yet undetermined by me, or by anyone else that I know of, but I wouldn't be surprised at all if this could exceed 2500x or more! My personal best is 905x at 0.40 Euros bet, but my biggest win on the game was 1045.75 Euros on a 5.00 Euros bet, for a much decreased 209x total bet ratio.
Not really what I don't like about this game, but it is something that I have come to realise after playing it for some years now. If high win ratios are what you are after, like 1000x total bet or higher, then your chances would be very much better with small bets of 0.40 or 0.60 Euros. I have played with bet sizes ranging from just 0.40 Euros up to 5.00 Euros bet per spin, and I have tried to improve my personal best ratio of 905x with those bigger bets, but have failed to get it every time! The total amount won may be more, but the win ratio always decreases with the bigger bet sizes! I don't know for sure, of course, but this is what I have noticed from my own observation.
On top of that, how I wished those Wilds could double any wins with it, which they don't, or at least, have a win multiplier for the free spins game, which there isn't any either. The Wilds don't pay for themselves, so at least doubling of wins would be good, and even better with a win multiplier for the free spins. Nonetheless, Creature from the Black Lagoon has remained as one of my most favourite NetEnt games to date.
