Personal testers opinion about Lucky Angler slot
This machine has low volatility but keeps the balance well. I want to draw your attention to the probability of getting any winning (hit). This indicator is equal to 39.41%. Lucky Angler slot often gives out the pay combinations, but their amount is not impressive. Usually, they are lower or the same as the initial bet. My maximum winning for one spin was 148x, during the bonus feature average winning 39x my bet. According to the statistic, every 195th spin (0,51%) triggers the bonus feature. Here you can complete wagering requirements (rating is 6.33 from 10). Note that this machine is not popular among the gamblers and usually the prize pool for the big winning is empty. The player can try to bet more here to increase the volatility and winning potential, but this is risky as the empty pool can catch him at this moment. There are a lot of better online slots in Netents line for real money gambling.
