Appearance and Sound Effects
Being an Elk Studio slot there are two things you can guarantee, it's going to look fantastic and that they are going to go into detail with the backstory. The slot game is a story about Mr Lake and is 5 compatriots who want to stop Mr Romano who is illegally trading rare animals as a get quick rich scheme.
The evil masterminds tower stands ominously in the background, lit only by the moonlight in the dark night. On the reels, you have Mr Lakes five friends in symbol form; elephant, alligator, parrot, monkey, and Goldfish.
The first bonus feature on The Lake's Five is the Respin feature. To trigger this, you must land two of the games logo symbol, which is the bonus scatter symbol. During the feature, Mr Lake will appear and transform the scatters into respin wilds.
During the respins the wilds will move one place downwards for every spin. The feature will continue until you either have only one of the scatter symbols remaining on the reels or you trigger the second of the games bonus features, the Heist Bonus Game.
If you don't trigger the Heist Bonus via the respin feature, it will be activated by landing three of the scatter symbols. This is a free spins feature, where you start with twenty free spins, and your goal is to try to free the monkey from the top of the evil Mr Romano's tower.
To do this, you must collect the golden keys as they will unlock cascading wild features and will give you extra free spins. Collecting wilds three wilds on reel one will also unlock the walking wilds feature, where the wilds move one place to the right. For collecting three wilds on reel three, you trigger the sticky wilds feature locking the wilds in place for the remainder of the free spins.
The Heist Bonus Game feature can also be triggered by getting 3 scatters – here, the Lake's Five try to break into Mr Romano's heavily guarded office at the top of the Romano tower in order to release the captured monkey. You begin with 10 free spins.
During the feature, the aim is to collect golden keys as these will unlock cascading wild features and give you extra free spins for every 1 you collect. If you collect 3 keys on reel 1, you will until the Walking Wild feature. You will then see walking wilds move 1 reel to the right after every free spin. For three on reel five, you get the Climbing Wilds feature which makes the wilds climb one row each spin.
If you unlock all the above bonuses, you will free the monkey which will result in a party on the reels.
Elk Studios have again pushed the boundaries of quality with this Lake's Five game. The gameplay is good, the storyline is quirky, and the bonuses are great.
