The animals are loose in Las Vegas and they’ve each got their own skills to get the cash out of the casino. Time to join the Lake’s Five slot gang.

Elk Studios loves their heist slots. Lake’s Five aims to be a little different from other five reel games the company has produced, however.

It is up to you to decide whether these differences are for the best. Of course, we have our own opinion about it.

The theme: animals planning a heist in the middle of gambling mecca of the world. Yes. We know. The slots designers over at Elk really love their quirky online slots, but this may be a step too far on the believability scale.

That being said, anything can happen in Vegas. Knowing our luck, the next time we are in the city we will see an alligator running away with a bag of loot, rendering this whole paragraph pointless.

We digress. The video slot does look good. It’s one of the Elk Studios slots that really manages to pack a punch with the plethora of colours that it boasts.

The game really comes into its own when you crack it open as the Lake’s Five mobile slot. It is evident that the game was designed for Android, iOS and Windows, though it functions just fine on a PC.

Lake Five slot boasts some unique wilds

The logo for the game is the main wild you want to be on the hunt for. It appears often enough, but since this is a slot edging high volatility, we can’t imagine that it is going to give you the huge wins that you want all that often.

The second wild is the scatter symbol. This is Mr. Lake, an elk. He is not a wild by default. If you get just one of them, it is just a scatter.

If you get two, then they become wild and interesting things happen.

Catch 2 to 3 respins with just 2 scatters

Each time the game respins, the scatters will move one place downwards. This slot feature will continue until one of two things happen:

  1. One of the scatters falls off the reels.
  2. You get another scatter

We love the fact that two scatters give us something. It makes this 178 ways to win game a touch more exciting.

You are probably like us: on the edge of irritation when two scatters pop up and you really want to trigger the bonus round – much like in the Hidden slot.

You won’t get that many respins, 2 or 3 seems to be about the cap, but you should get some nice wins to keep you going.

Save the monkey and get the riches

As soon as you have three scatters on the reels, the heist can begin. You will have ten free spins.

When you get into the heist, you will notice that there are three lock symbols at the bottom of reels 1, 3 and 5. To unlock these locks, you need to get three keys on that reel.

Not all in one go, but over the course of your ten spins. Behind each lock is a different feature in this Lake’s Five slot online.

Each of these will be a varying number of wilds:

  • Reel 1: Walking wilds that move right each time you spin until they fall off the reels.
  • Reel 3: Sticky wilds that remain until the end of the bonus round.
  • Reel 5: Climbing wilds that climb up one row each time you spin.

In addition to this, if the walking wilds run into each other or the walking wild comes into contact with a sticky wild, you will receive either a 2x or 3x multiplier.

We just wish that there were more ways to trigger free spins here as ten spins doesn’t really feel like enough to get the most out of this feature.

Would we recommend this 5 reel video slot?

It is good, but we fear that the volatility of it is going to be a touch too high for most people, not to mention the fact that you are probably never going to make the most out of that free spins mode – a bit like in their Kaiju slot game.

We do love the double scatter wilds and the respins, which keeps the base game lively and interesting.

You can win as much as 2,160 times bet in this Lake’s Five slot game, and the minimum bet is only 0.20 a spin.

So you might be pleasantly surprised when you take a few spins – try it and you’ll see.
