Creature From The Black Lagoon is an online slot developed by NetEnt. The game, which uses a 5×3 layout with 20 paylines, is based on the classic 1954 horror movie of the same name and was developed in partnership with Universal. It can be played from 20p to £100 a spin and users are tasked with saving the gorgeous Kay Lawrence from the creature’s cold grasp while landing some wins along the way.

Symbols in the game are based on characters from the film. You’ll find Kay, David, Carl and Lucas as well as a pair of binoculars, a dagger, an oxygen tank and a chest. If you’re interested in playing the game, just continue reading our Creature From The Black Lagoon review.

How To Play

Before you can even attempt to save Kay Lawrence from the creature, you need to register at an online casino offering the game and make a deposit. Once you’ve done that, you can load up the online slot and hit the green spin button to start your adventure. However, it’s worth taking a look at your wager and adjusting it appropriately. You can do this by clicking the arrow buttons beside ‘Coin Value’ and ‘Level’.

Users feeling lucky can hit the ‘Max Bet’ button to wager the maximum amount. You can also enable the autoplay feature, allowing you to select the number of times you want the reels to spin. Enabling this feature means you can sit back, relax and watch everything unfold.

Special Features

Creature From The Black Lagoon

There are three different Wild symbols in the game. They all display the slot’s logo but come in different colours:

  • Green: Wild Symbol
  • Yellow: Spreading Wild 1
  • Orange: Spreading Wild 2

The Wild symbols can appear randomly anywhere on the reels in the main game and substitutes for all other symbols except the Free Spins and Target symbols. When you land a Wild symbol in the base game and Free Spins feature, it becomes Sticky Wild and the reels will re-spin. The Sticky Wild will remain on the reel for the following re-spin or re-spins and landing additional Wilds will lead to more re-spins. If this happens, all Sticky Wild symbols will remain on the reels until no more Wild symbols land.

Free Spins

Landing three or more Free Spins symbols triggers the Free Spins feature. The Free Spins symbols can appear anywhere on the reels and the number of Freee Spins you’re awarded differs depending on the number of Free Spins symbols you land. Landing three Free Spins symbols earns you 10 spins, landing four symbols earns you 15 spins and landing five symbols earns you 20 spins.

Target Symbol

During the Free Spins feature, Target symbols can only appear on the fifth reel. When you land Target symbols, the creature appears on the right-hand side of the screen and gets shot. A health meter at the bottom of the screen during the Free Spin feature display’s the creature’s health bar and each hit will take away part of the creature’s health.

The creature’s health bar has four levels that you reach by collecting Target symbols. Each level provides users with different rewards:

  • Level One: Collecting zero to two Target symbols will trigger a re-spin and any Wild symbols will Sticky.
  • Level Two: Collecting three to five Target symbols will activate the first Spreading Wild symbol, spreading horizontally to one reel and remaining there for a re-spin.
  • Level Three: Collecting six to right Target symbols will activate the second Spreading Wild symbol, spreading to one reel on the left and one to the right. It remains on the reels for one re-spin.
  • Level Four: Collecting nine Target symbols triggers the final level and you are awarded 10 bonus spins.

After you’ve reached the fourth level, you can no longer land Target symbols.


Creature From The Black Lagoon is an incredibly fun online slot. Its unique Free Spins feature, which sees you shooting the creature, is something we haven’t seen anywhere else and provides gamers with a unique player experience. The game features excellent graphics and a great accompanying soundtrack. In addition, it’s easy to make plenty of wins in the slot, both during the main game and in the Free Spins feature.

It’s perfect for first-timer and regular players as well as for fans of the original movie. If you’re interested in the slot, which has an RTP of 96.5%, you can find it at Casumo, BGO Casino, Mr Green, Videoslots, LeoVegas, SlotsMillion and more.
