Lucky Otter Slot Review

Otter Fishing is a special fishing technique that uses trained Otters to fish. Captain Bob is Fantasma Games‘ very own master of Otter Fishing, and he’s here to show you how it’s really done in Lucky Otter. The brewing thunderstorm is no problem for Captain Bob and his very capable group of Otters!

Join us as we team up with Bob and his team of otters during Otters Go Wild, where a number of otters dive onto the reels during each Cascade, keeping the winning streak going strong.

Along the way, you will come into contact with the Helpful Crab that removes symbols to trigger a Cascade and an Increasing Multiplier that boosts the multiplier by +x1, making the next catch even bigger!

Wild Otters

Above the main reel set is an additional reel set with only Wild Otters present. Wild Otter symbols substitute for all High and Low-paying symbols from the paytable.

When a Cascade occurs and winning symbols are removed, Wild Otter symbols will drop down and fill a number of empty reel positions, potentially forming a new win.

Increasing Multiplier

During gameplay, a Global Win Multiplier starting at x1 is active. Each time a win occurs, the Global Win Multiplier will increase by +x1, up to a maximum of x50.  The Global Win Multiplier is available in both the base game and Free Spins round and is applied to all wins that occur.

Helpful Crab Respin

The Helpful Crab symbol can appear on all reels during the base game and Free Spins round. When the Crab symbol lands in view, it will trigger a Crab Respin feature after all wins are complete.

The Crab symbol will remove itself and a number of random symbols from the reels, triggering the Cascade Feature. Each Cascade will contribute to increasing the Global Win Multiplier.

Lucky Otter Free Spins

Landing 3 or more Scatters in the base game triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 10 Free Spins. Each additional Scatter after the 3rd will award an extra +5 Free Spins respectively.

During Free Spins, the Global Win Multiplier will begin at x2, increasing by +x2 each time a Cascade occurs. The Global Win Multiplier does not reset between Free Spins.

Landing 3 or more Scatters during this time will award an additional +10 Free Spins, plus an extra +5 Free Spins for every Scatter after the 3rd.

Lucky Otter: Our Verdict

Lucky Otter may not look much when you first load it up, but deep beneath the surface are a number of interesting features that will definitely float your boat.

To say that Fantasma has a fascination with animals is an understatement. Out of the many games they’ve produced, the majority of them feature an animal of some kind, including Goats, Dinosaurs, and even Llamas. Lucky Otter is another to add to that collection, but what did we really think of the game overall?

The star of the show is the Otter Wilds and how they can enhance or create further wins after a Cascade occurs. Rather than Multipliers being added to these symbols, Fantasma has added a Global Win Multiplier that increases by +x1 after each Cascade. However, during Free Spins, the Global Win Multiplier begins at x2 and increases by +x2 after each Cascade, up to a maximum of x50.

The only disappointing factor is the max win cap that sits at 4,416x. It’s not the best outcome we’ve seen in a Fantasma slot, but it’s not the worst either. Fantasma Games execute their games beautifully, yet they always seem to fall short in potential as of late.
