Big game fishing in the great American wilderness of Alaska is the backdrop for this 5-reel mobile slot game introduced by Microgaming in 2009. It is not just the anglers and native animals that are landing the big prizes, you too can get hooked and win big.
Alaskan Fishing is one of the first generation of mobile slots that cast away paylines in favour of symbols that provide 243 ways to win. The Alaskan Fishing logo is the most valued quarry in the app, playing the part of the wild symbol that can substitute for every other symbol (except free spins and bonuses) and also potentially deliver the game’s biggest fixed jackpot, returning up to 500 coins.
Impossibly clear mountain streams with giant grizzly bears pouncing on salmon, eagles soaring above snow-drizzled mountains, backcountry float planes alighting on crystalline alpine lakes. You get it all in the wild country served up by Alaskan Fishing Slots. Throw in trophies and pontoon boats and the graphics capture the Alaska seen on nature television but experienced by only the luckiest of fishermen. Calming fishing-paced music purrs in the background adding to the ambience – until a strike when rock-and-roll announces a bonus game.
Wagering begins with plays between 0.30 and 1.50 coins, generating a maximum bet of 15.00 coins. A Bet Max fish screen button can automatically set your desired number of coins in play and also spins the reel. An autoplay feature in expert mode generates either five or ten consecutive spins or you can set your own play limits. It can also be deactivated for a more leisurely jackpot fishing experience. You can win up to 5,000 coins in the base mobile game (all wins pay left to right only) and bounties of 10,000 and 22,500 coins are possible in bonus features.
The Tackle Box is Alaskan Fishing’s scatter; if it appears 3, 4 or 5 times anywhere on the five reels you land 15 free spins. In those spins all wins are doubled and a bonus scatter pays a hefty 100x against a five-free spin trigger. Free spins can be re-triggered during free spin time.
If the Fisherman symbol shows up on the 1st and 5th reel the app’s Fly Fishing Bonus Feature is unspooled. You can choose to take your trusty dog and cooler to five of nine Alaskan fishing holes in pursuit of prize salmon. The bigger the fish you land the bigger your multiplier rewards up to 15 times your original stake. The Fly fishing Bonus can be pulled to shore any time, including during free spins.
