I personally love old movies, from the time special effects didn’t exist yet and movies were for real. And no, I’m not old. I wasn’t born yet when the film, that Creature from the Black Lagoon™ is based on, appeared at the cinemas. I just happen love old movies.
It takes time to appreciate old films, though, because we became rather spoiled. I was even born after the Steven Spielberg films. Jaws is before my time, so is E.T., although I’ve seen this film many times. I certainly do remember Jurassic Park, already packed with loads of special effects.
I haven’t seen Creature from the Black Lagoon™ yet, but after I’ve tried this video slot game, I can’t wait to see the movie as well. My adoration for old films makes me a big fan of these types of video slots too. Like The Invisible Man™ and Creature from the Black Lagoon™, for example.
Admire the way NetEnt did the film justice, as it isn’t an easy thing to do you know. But the Swedish developer did it again, including excellent graphics, music, some cutting-edge 3D effects, making this video slot as close to perfect as one can get.

Creatures of the Black Lagoon™ movie
Created in 1954, Creature from the Black Lagoon™ is a horror 3D film in black-and-white, directed by Jack Arnold and starring Richard Carlson, Julia Adams, Richard Denning, Antonio Moreno and Whit Bissell.
The story itself is about a strange prehistoric beast lurking in the depths of the Amazonian jungle. A group of scientists try to capture the animal, bringing it back to civilization for study.
And while these days they are filmed by IMAX cameras, and 3D movies are completely normal, it wasn’t like that in 1954. Creature from the Black Lagoon™ was originally projected by the polarized light method, responsible for the 3D effect.
The audience in that time wore viewers with grey polarizing filters, similar to the viewers most commonly used today while watching 3D movies in the cinemas. But even though Creature from the Black Lagoon™ was a 3D film, many actually saw the film “flat”, in 2D. Simply because the 3D version was only available in large downtown cinemas.
Besides a classic movie, Creature from the Black Lagoon™ is also one of NetEnt’s monster video slots, although this game would have been an imitated slot without any original features in it.
Thanks to another cooperation with Universal©, NetEnt has the approval to use the original pictures, as well as all main characters. In this case, it includes the protagonist from the old film, the prehistoric, half-fish, half-human Creature.
I love the cooperation between two great entertainment companies, resulting in an amazing game offering all feature you ask for as a player. The betting options don’t bring anything new though although Net Entertainment did well not giving you the opportunity to change the amount of bet lines. This will definitely help you to achieve the bonus feature Creature from the Black Lagoon™ is all about. This means the minimum bet will be 0.20 which can be steadily increased due to 10 bet levels and 6 coin values up to 0.50. This results in a huge amount of betting options suitable for all kind of players, including low rollers and high rollers.
Creature from the Black Lagoon™ features
This latest partnership with Universal© has created another amazingly designed video slot awash with innovative features, including an impressive bonus game. Although before we get there, you have the opportunity to boost wins with Wild substitutions, Sticky Wilds, Spreading Wilds and re-spins.
Wild symbols can appear randomly anywhere on the reels in the main game, and substitute for all symbols except for Free Spin symbols. When a Wild symbol appears on the reels, no matter if in the main game or during Free Spins, it will act as a Sticky Wild and remains on the reels for subsequent re-spin or re-spins. Additional Wild symbols appearing anywhere on the reels, in both, the main game and in Free Spins, also remain on the reels until the re-spins end.
Wild symbol substitution pays the highest possible winning combination on a bet line according to the PAYTABLE.
Meanwhile in the Black Lagoon™…
The prehistoric, half-fish, half-human Creature makes his appearance in Free Spins, capturing Kay and taking her to his underwater lair. It’s up to you to save Kay from the Creature from the Black Lagoon™.
During Free Spins you can attempt the rescue when the Target symbol appears, in the hope of shooting the watery beast. The more target symbols collected, the more the Creature’s health deteriorates and the bigger the reward. This way you can unlock Spreading Wilds and re-spins.
When level 1 of the Health Meter is reached, Wild symbols can appear randomly anywhere on reels 1-4 only. At levels 2-4, Wild symbols can appear randomly anywhere on reels 2, 3 and 4 only. Once you’ve managed to collect the maximum amount of target symbols, 10 additional Free Spins will be unlocked.
