International Game Technology has brought out the online version of one of the most popular games they ever created, Lobstermania. Some of the reasons for this slot game becoming such a favourite is because of its great game play, and also the cartoon humour used in the game. The online slots game looks the same as the favourite land based version, with the same animated graphics, like the lobsters, crabs and lighthouses. The soundtrack, the classic “Rock Lobster” song, is also the same.
The Game Details
Lobstermania is a five reel game with 25 pay lines. Players at real money slots can make wagers on each pay line, with a maximum of 75 coins per spin. There is also a massive possible jackpot win of 50,000 credits. The game is easy to play as there are images and instructions which will make sure the new player is comfortable with the rules. All players can play this game, as when they win, they often win big prizes.
The Wild in this game is Lucky Larry Lobster, wearing sunglasses. The Scatter symbols are the Crabs.
The two main features of Lobstermania are two bonus games, one of which features the hero of Lobstermania, Lucky Larry the Lobster, and is called The Great Lobster Escape Bonus Round. The other main bonus is the Buoy Bonus Round.
The Buoy Bonus Round to Catch the Lobsters
When the player finds three winning combinations in the three winning pay lines, the Buoy Bonus round is activated. This involves the player trying to catch all the lobsters, and the bigger the lobster caught, the bigger will be the winnings. The player chooses the Buoys, and opens the lobster pots to see what size lobster he has caught. Each of the Buoys has two or more lobsters in the trap. There are also some empty pots, which will end the round if the player hits one of them. There is also the possibility of the player winning the jackpot of 50,000 coins. In order to win this jackpot, the player has to find the Lucky Larry Lobster symbol during the round, as it will reward him with a five times multiplier. These two bonus rounds are some of the reasons International Game Technology has made Lobstermania into such a favourite in land based casinos, and will make sure the online game continues to be popular with all players.
The Great Lobster Escape Bonus Round
The Great Lobster Escape bonus round will first show the player a screen full of caged lobster symbols. These symbols are important to winning a payout in this bonus round. The icons will just come into view randomly and suddenly, and may come from anywhere on the screen. This does require a certain level of concentration on the part of the player, as the key to winning the bonus round is to spot the caged lobsters as quickly as they appear.
If the player is able to grab three lobster symbols, the bonus game will be activated, where the player has the chance to win big payouts. This bonus round requires the player to help Lucky Larry’s friends escape from the cages. Every lobster that is freed adds to Lucky Larry’s joy, which also increases the value of the bonus winnings. At the end of the round the bonus winnings are added to the player’s total payout.
