Lakes Five

Elk Studios have created a crime caper slot game that looks like it has taken inspiration from films like Ocean's Eleven. 

However, instead of George Clooney and his associates, on Lake's Five you have Mr Lake and his five animal friend's elephant, monkey, goldfish, parrot, and alligator. They are tasked with pulling off the slot heist of the century from the evil Mr Romano in his tower, and you are invited along to enjoy the fun.  Players will be able to play Lake's Five for just 10p a spin on all devices, and a top stake will be £100.  The prize on offer for scooping the jackpot is a massive 1000x your stake.

Our Verdict:  Lake's Five is five-reel slot game created by Elk Studios.  The game is instantly recognisable as an Elk slot as on Lake's Five there is pinpoint graphics and big animations that follow a style seen before by Elk.  The game begins with an intro video which sets the scene, however, the animations continue onto the reels as you spin both in the base game and bonus feature.  Like Elk creations before, on Lake's Five there are no traditional paylines, instead, there are 178 ways to win.  This is great, as it creates fast gameplay as matching symbols only need to land on adjacent reels for wins to be formed.

Wild Symbol:  Mr Lake is the wild symbol on Lake's Five. This symbol is a special symbol and can substitute for all other symbols on the reels, except the bonus logo symbol, to produce winning combinations.  He will complete combinations involving the five animal symbols, as well as the bowl of diamonds and the medical bag symbols.

The Respin Bonus:   Lake's Five comes with two bonuses.  The first of those bonuses is the respin bonus feature.  This feature is triggered when two of the game's logos land at the same time on the reels. This will reward some respins, and Mr Lake will come onto the reels and transform the logo symbols into wilds. These wilds when then move downwards as the respins occur and that will continue until only one symbol remains. The Heist Bonus can be triggered also.

Heist Bonus:  The big bonus feature on Lake's Five is the Heist Bonus.  This feature is triggered by landing three of the logo symbols on the reels simultaneously.  This will reward ten free spins will which begin instantly. As the spins play more spins will be awarded for landing key symbols on reels one, three and five.  For each one key, a free spin is given.  Wilds will move one place to the right as you spin and if they land where other wilds are they will award a multiplier of 2x or 3x.  Landing three logos in a single reel will award the following add-ons: 
•    Reel One: Wild symbols move a position to the right.
•    Reel Three: All wilds become sticky wilds
•    Reel Five: Wilds move towards the top of the reels.
