This is a Barcrest phone game meaning one thing: this Reel’em In Lobster Potty slot has got some big bets. But will have give you a big catch?
Not all Barcrest slots have the big bet options, and of those that do, not all of them do it well (looking at you Monopoly Bring The House Down)
Our version of being able to enjoy the Big Bet slot without having to use the big bet feature if we don’t have to.
Why is that? Because the big bet usually requires you pay more. In this case anything from 4 to 10 in cash, per spin.
Of course it is. It wouldn’t be a Big Bet game if it wasn’t.
Basically if you choose to play 5 spins at a higher betting price, you’ll get anything from more wilds, more often, to up to 10x multipliers on those wilds.
It’s pretty sweet incentive, and hard to resist. But here’s where we are going to save you a bit of cash.
Yes you do get more wins with the big bets – the return to player rate increases from 96% to 98%, so you do get more money more often.
It’s the same as with all the others, including their last release Dr Jekyll Goes Wild mobile game.
But you don’t trigger the bonus feature more often, which is where you get the big wins in this Reel’em In Lobster Potty slot game.
When all 5 reels turn sandy you get, technically, what we’d call the Reel’em In Lobster Potty free spins.
Except it doesn’t work exactly like that – we give more details in the section below.
But basically, every symbol that lands on the reels gives you a cash reward, mostly it’s fish and you get around 20x your bet.
However, sometimes, this Barcrest slot game decides you’re going to go Lobster catching, and that’s when you can win one of the three jackpots at the top of the reels.
And sometimes, that’s all you need to want to fishing; the hope of catching that big 500 pounds contest winning catch, all in one spin.

Reel'em In Slot Bonus Game: When all 5 reels turn the colour of sand, you'll generally catch this bonus.
Here, anything from one to all five reels will be 'activated' meaning they will spin independently of each other and show you different fish.
Each fish has been assigned a value, so it's like an instant win. These reels then keep spinning, totally the wins you get from the fish, until you land a boot. At which point that reel will 'close'.
The bonus ends when all reels have found a boot.
Lobster Pot Jackpot Bonus: Sometimes, when you turn all 5 reels to sand, the Lobster Pot bonus is triggered instead of the Reel'em In bonus.
Then, the 3rd reel will spin and one of three lobsters will show up, triggering one of the three jackpots on the top of the reels:
Big Bet Spin: These consist of 5 spins you take at a set price. All the wins made during those 5 spins, including any bonuses you've triggered, are paid out at the end of the 5 spins.
We weren't sure about this Reel'em In Lobster Potty slot on mobile at first.
And honestly, if you can't afford the big bets, we'd probably still advise you to play on something a little friendlier on the wallet; say any of the Rainbow Riches phone slots.
But Reel'em In Lobster Potty is one of the few big bet games where we genuinely felt like we could win a decent amount, without needing to go on a higher limit than was comfortable.
Mostly this is because the main bonus feature is triggered on any spin, and you get a chance at 3 decent in-game jackpots.
Though not quite the catch Barcrest would make you believe, there's some treasures in these deep waters if you have a little patience.
