Play The Angler online: Check out our slot review below

The Angler Introduction is all excited – we go to the lake today for a fishing lesson with good old Otis and The Angler, an online slot created by Betsoft. 

The Angler Game Features

The Angler is a 5-reel, 20 payline hook-line-and-sinker which offers decent payouts. Set your bait anywhere between 20 and 100 credits, on 1 to 5 bet levels and on 1 to 20 paylines, with a minimum bet amount of € 0.01 and a maximum of € 100.

The best thing about The Angler – well, actually there are quite a few best things about The Angler, which we’ll talk about later on in this review – is that it makes angling look like a thrilling sports thanks to its fantastic bonus features and minigames.

Free Spins and Bonuses

With your feet in the lake, you never know what marine being might cling to you. In The Angler, the only thing that’s bound to cling to the reels is the Clingy Wilds.

With three Scatter symbols (pearl symbols) landing anywhere on the third, fourth and fifth reels, you will trigger the Free Spins Mode. The beauty of this feature is you can win additional free spins while you are in this mode, but watch out as the Wilds appearing on the reels will cling to the reels for as long as you keep getting free spins. As you will be able to see for yourself as you pull the reels back, these Clingy Wilds offer huge potential wins as the more they cling, the more they transform other symbols into winning paylines.

Betsoft has also thrown in a little bonus game with The Angler, and it’s far from being a pain in the bass. The Time to Fish Bonus Game will see you get onto a boat with Otis if three Bonus symbols land on the first, second and third reels. You get to test your fishing skills – choose whether you want to Reel them in or Pull them out and if you land three fish before you pull out three nice nothings you get to win a meaty bonus.

Finally, you get to bet your winnings with the Double Up option, a Gamble feature which is available after every standard win. Choose whether to gamble your last win, or whether you want to gamble half of it, choose between heads or tails and double your stake. If you lose, your catch goes overboard. 

The Angler Payouts

There are two sets of symbols on The Icon: aside from the Wild (the octopus symbol) which we have spoken about, the High-Value Icons offer the higher prizes. Land Otis five times on the reels to get 1750 credits (minimum of 500 credits for 3 hits) while the Hammerhead awards you 1000 credits for 5 hits, the turtle 750 credits, the green fish lands you 750 credits and the red fish 375 credits. There are also the standard card symbols which give you decent payouts for 5 hits.

Winning lines are paid from left to right, and only the highest win per line pays.

The Angler Graphics and Sound

The Angler’s relaxing soundtrack accompanies Betsoft’s top-notch, cartoonish graphics. The reels are set against a peaceful lake and mountain background, while the game itself, despite the rather large icons, retains more than an average degree of cleanliness. The Icons at the bottom are also cartoonish and you will have no issue finding out how much you’ve won, wagered and on how many lines.


You’ll have a whale of a time with The Angler – its stunningly smooth graphics are a perfect setup for a game that will have you reeling away in the hope of landing huge catches… erm, we meant wins.
