The Angler Is The Catch Of The Day!There’s good reason The Angler is one of Betsofts’ most well-loved slot games: and it’s not just because we all love fishing so much: it’s more to do with the super-sized 97.1% RTP and the regular, big wins, even in the base game.
This cutesy, fishing themed video slot game is hiding a secret in its murky depths: at 97.1%, this little pearl has one of the best RTP rates online. Set in the open sea with your friendly angling expert by the reel side, you’d have to be extremely unlucky not to win with stats like these! The base game features 5 reels, 20 adjustable paylines and 9 base symbols.
The highest paying base symbol is the angler himself, of course, who can reward wins of up to 350 coins. Then you also have, in order from highest to lowest paying, the marlin, turtle, puffer fish and the adorable gold fish symbol. Finally, at the bottom, the other 4 symbols are all cards. The Wild is represented by a clingy, red octopus who can substitute for almost any other symbol in the base game.
When you win in the base game, all the winning combination symbols are surrounded by bubbles and linked with rope and sailor knots. The base game also features a coin flip gamble feature, where you are invited to lay either half or all of your most recent win down on a coin flip. This is also an easy way to double your winnings.
There are 2 special feature games available in The Angler pokies. The first is triggered by 3 octopus scatter symbols appearing anywhere on reels 3, 4 and 5. This starts the free spins round, which can also be retriggered and features with sticky octopus wilds during the entire free spins feature, which make for a pretty good catch.
The second special feature is triggered by 3 bonus game symbols on reels 1,2 and 3, which gives you 20 credits to start with and encourages you to ‘reel in’ as many fish as possible. Each fish holds a different mystery reward and the game keeps doing until you choose the one dud fish that lets it all get away.
