Our Verdict:

Lake's Five is a brilliant slot game with so much to offer.  The game is a five-reel slot with no traditional paylines, but it has 178 ways to win leading to fast and exciting gameplay.  On the slot there are two great bonus features, both packed full of additions as you would expect in an Elk game.  You would also expect wonderful animations and attention to detail in the design of Elk games, and Lake's Five has raised the bar further in that regard. Before you even begin there is the intro video, more like a short clip from a movie. Further to this, there are animations used throughout the game as you spin which just oozes quality.

Wild Symbol:

Mr Lake is the wild symbol on Lake's Five. The wild symbol could be the key to some big combinations during the base game or bonus features as it can help produce winning combinations. It does this by substituting for most symbols on the game.  Mr Lake can't substitute for the Lake's Five logo bonus symbol.

The Respin Bonus:

The respin feature on Lake's Five is not a traditional respin bonus and comes with some added features.  This feature is triggered by landing two of the Lake's Five logos on a single spin.  This will then trigger the respins to begin.  As the spins play, Mr Lake will turn the triggering logo symbols into wilds which will then move place downwards after each spin.  The respins will continue until one of the two symbols disappears, or the Heist Bonus is triggered.

Heist Bonus:

The Heist Bonus is essentially a free spins bonus feature, but like the respin feature there are some add-ons. To trigger the free spins three of the games logo symbol must land on the reels, awarding ten free spins. As these spins play, you will try to break into Mr Romano's tower to free the monkey.  You do this by collecting keys and earning more free spins. You will earn one free spin for every key collected on reels one, three and five. To free the monkey, you must unlock all three of the following add-ons.
•   Collect three Logos on Reel One: Wild symbols move a position to the right.
•   Collect three Logos on Reel Three: All wilds become sticky wilds
•   Collect three Logos on Reel Five: Wilds move towards the top of the reels.
