NetEnt presents the Crab Trap slot game where you’ll go fishing for up to 1,000x your bet crab symbols via respins and free spins.
The Crab Trap mobile slot is a 6 reel, 4-row casino game with Scatter Pays. You’ll find a respins feature to collect Money Crab Symbols, up to 15 Free Spins, a 96.07% RTP and a low 0.10 minimum bet.
Its theme isn’t as vibrant as Lobster Bob’s Crazy Crab Shack slot, but it’s well-created, taking you right to the seaside where the fishing for up to 1000x your bet crab symbols begins.
You’ll find low-paying A – J symbols, medium-paying buckets and starfish, and higher-paying welly boots and fishing floats across the 6×4 reel layout.
One more type of symbol that can appear on your spins is the Crab symbol. These can come as singles, 2×2 or 3×3 colossal symbols, with the bigger they are, the bigger the money prize shown.
To collect these, you’ll need to trigger the Respins feature.
This is done by landing Blue Boat symbols which add up to 1 to 5 Golden Trap Frames at a time which stay on screen until the respins are triggered by having 5 traps on screen and a Red Boat landing on reel 4.
You’ll get one respin where when any crab symbols land in the trap, frames will be caught and payout their monetary values.
It’s a feature that occurs often, helping to keep your casino balance in tip-top shape as you wait for the free spins bonus to hit.
In the free spins bonus, you’ll find even more action with the 3 or more Scatters lands 5 or more free spins, with 6 scatters landing you the top 15 free spins.
You can trigger the respins during the free spins, this time with the red boat landing on reel 3 instead of 4.
Any trap frames will stay on the reels for the free spins, helping land those big money crab symbols that could land you up to 1000x your bet.
It’s a bonus game that has the potential for some decent wins, but as the top win is so low for this medium variance game at just 1191x, your bet expects smaller 20 – 50x wins as more commonplace.

Scatter Pays: Landing 5+ high-paying symbols, 6+ medium-paying symbols or 7+ low-paying symbols anywhere on the reels creates a win.
Respins: Blue Boat symbols landing anywhere on the reels adds 1 to 5 golden Trap frames to the reels. When there are 5 or more trap frames on the reels and a red boat symbol lands on reel 4 in the base game, or reel 3 in the free spins, a Respin of the reels is granted. If a crab symbol lands in a Trap frame during the respin, it will be caught, and the money symbol on it will be paid out as a win. If you land another red boat on a respin, you'll get another respin of the reels.
Crab Symbols: Crab symbols can appear across all 6 reels and have money values attached. Single crab symbols can have 1x, 2x, 5x or 10x your bet, 2x2 colossal crab symbols can have 10x, 20x, 50x, 0r 100x your bet and 3x3 colossal crab symbols can have 100x, 200x, 500x or 1000x your bet values.
Free Spins: 3, 4, 5, or 6 scatter symbols reward 5, 7, 10 or 15 free spins respectively. Every three scatter symbols that land during the free spins awards 1+ extra free spins. The trap frames do not disappear during the free spins, and you can reactivate the respins.
Buy Feature: For 50x your current bet, you can buy the free spins round with 6 free spins awarded with 10 trap frames randomly added to the reels.
NetEnt have created a beautiful-looking slot in the Crab Trap slot on mobile.
The scatter pays adds a different dimension to your standard online casino slots, while the frequently triggering Respins feature adds a little more action even if they don't always pay out big.
It's in the Crab Trap free spins where the potential for the biggest wins of the game is but that low top win which could easily have been higher, makes us more likely to play the Kraken's Sky Bounty slot from Pragmatic Play.
Overall fun to play slot, with great graphics and a few exciting features that are good for a few spins from time to time.
Head over to one of our top NetEnt casinos online and take it for a spin, and you might land the 1,000x bet crab.
