Lobstermania is a standard slot machine game that for years has been present at land-based casinos and fairly recently has made its way to the online arena as well. It’s a 5 reel and 25 payline slot machine game with a maximum jackpot of 50 000 coins. As common in many other online slot machine games, this ocean-themed game also has a wild symbol, a scatter symbol as well as a bonus feature. Not all online slot machine games offer free game play or at least a demo version, however Lobstermania does, which is great for new players wanting to test out the proverbial waters so to say.
How to Play Lobstermania
Lobstermania, powered by IGT, is played with coin sizes of 0.01 to 20.00. The aim is to match as many of the same symbol across the reels as possible. 3 of the same symbol will get you a win. Depending on the symbol that win can be quite rewarding like NRL bets. If you have 5 of the same symbol that’s when the payouts become very rewarding. For example, 5 Jacks will get you a total of 150 coins, and working up the food chain 5 lighthouses will get you 300 coins, 5 boats or 5 buoys will get you 500 coins, and 5 of the Lobstermania logo symbols will get you 1 000 coins.
There is an auto spin option which will allow you to select how many spins you would like to play on a set amount of paylines and the game will play those lines for you until your selected spins have come to an end or until you stop the action.
An Ocean-themed Look and Feel
As you enter the game you will be welcomed with a short introduction video that runs for a few seconds to allow you to get a good idea of the characters you can expect to see whilst playing the game. The first think you’ll notice is the strong ocean-theme that runs throughout.
The colours are bright and vibrant with a background set on a jetty somewhere with miles and miles of open ocean lying ahead. The symbols follow same, each depicting some kind of ocean/lobster-related character. The symbols include a lighthouse, a boat, a buoy, and the Lobstermania logo. Other card-style symbols also feature including the Jack, Queen, King and Ace. The wild symbol is a super cool lobster character wearing sunglasses, the scatter symbol is the lobster trapped in a cage.
The sounds effects are rather adventurous and suit the theme well.
Wild, Scatter and Bonus
Lobstermania, otherwise known as Lucky Larry’s Lobster Mania, has a wild, a scatter as well as a bonus feature. The wild symbol is the lobster wearing a pair of sunglasses, and the scatter symbol is the lobster trapped in a cage.
The wild symbol can replace any symbol on the reels to help form a winning combination. If you’re lucky enough to land with 5 wild symbols then the payout will be 50 000 coins.
The scatter symbol can appear on any reel and if you land with 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols then you will be rewarded with 4x, 25x, or 200x your total bet.
The bonus feature is activated getting 3 lobster fisherman symbols. The bonus feature it will activate is the Buoy Bonus; you will then need to select one of the ‘pick me’ lobster symbols which will reveal 2, 3 or 4 buoys. Each buoy will hold a prize and dependent on which one you choose you could win up to a 250x multiplier.
