The playing controls are situated across the bottom of the screen, with each button outlined in rope in keeping with the maritime theme. On the right hand side, there’s an option to adjust the graphics quality which is helpful if you’re using mobile data to play. The value of each coin can be set between 1 and 10. With the coin value set at maximum, each spin of the reel will cost you 60 coins.
That’s thanks to the game’s 40 paylines plus the cost of having access to the feature game. There’s also an auto spin button and audio controls, enabling you to mute the jolly but annoying theme tune.
During the base game, 3 matching symbols on a line will be enough to secure a win, though 5 in a row is naturally the preferable option. With the max bet placed per coin, the playing card symbols aren’t worth much; 5 kings will earn you a mere 150 credits. Do the same with the game’s orange logo, which serves as the wild symbol, however and you’ll scoop 8,000. The blue logo, on the other hand, is worth just 1,000 for 5 in a line.
The wild card symbols are at the heart of the game, with each one capable of substituting for any of the regular playing symbols. Look out for multiplier symbols too; these can appear alongside the likes of the boat, the buoy and the lighthouse, applying a 3x or 5x multiplier. This multiplier will apply to any win that lands on that particular payline.
The vivid green jackpot symbol can appear superimposed over any of the regular symbols save for wild. You’ll need 3 or more in a row to notch a jackpot win. That’s how many it takes to secure the Light Trap, but you’ll need 4 symbols for the Full Trap and 5 for the Mother Lode. The value of the jackpot will naturally vary according to the value of the bet per coin. It’s not possible to win the jackpot during Lucky Larry’s Free Spins Bonus. This feature is awarded when you land 3 wild symbols in a row of a certain colour on a payline.
It’s the blue logo that will grant you the free spins, whereas the white logo will activate Bonus Picker. Here you’ll be able to choose between Lucky Lobster’s Free Spins Bonus or Lucky Larry’s Buoy Bonus 2. The Buoy Bonus corresponds to 3 global lobster hotspots – Brazil, Australia and Maine. The workings of this bonus seem unnecessarily complex, but basically you want to aim for Golden Lobster if you can, only one of which can be activated per bonus. The RTP with the slot is stated as being between 92.84% and 96.52%, a precisely imprecise figure.
Lots of fun with Larry
Lucky Larry’s Lobstermania 2 doesn’t look like much, but it turns out to be a fun and potentially enriching game to play thanks to 3 jackpots, multiple wilds and several intriguing bonus games. Lower your pot to the ocean floor and see what you can scoop.
