Are you brave enough to help Mr Lake and his five animal associates in this fantastic new crime spoof slot game Lake's Five?  Your role will be to spin up some wins in order to defeat the evil Mr Romano and walk off with the loot in from the big heist.  Lake's Five is an Elk Studios creation, and it has five-reel and four rows.  On the game there are no traditional paylines, instead, there are 178 ways to win which combinations of matching symbols can be created on.

Our Verdict:

Being Elk Studios was always going to mean that Lake's Five was a well-designed slot game.  On the game, there is wonderful animations, great sound effects, and two wonderfully rewarding bonus features.

Wild Symbol:

On this slot game Mr. Lake is the wild symbol.  Mr Lake is a very important symbol as he may be able to help complete combinations of other symbols on the reels.  He can do this because as a wild symbol he is able to substitute for most symbols on the reels including the lower value symbols of bowls with diamonds inside and a medical bag.  He also will complete combinations involving his animal comrade's elephant, alligator, goldfish, monkey, and parrot. A combination of five goldfish is the most lucrative paying out 50x your stake for a five-symbol combo.

The Respin Bonus:

The first of the two bonuses on Lake's Five is the Respin bonus.  The games logo symbol is the key to unlocking this feature, and it will be triggered when two lands on the reels simultaneously.  Mr Lake will then perform a trick of changing them into wild symbols for the respins. After each respin the reels with the trigger, Lake's Five symbols will move one place downwards.  This process will continue until only one of the logos are in view or when the heist bonus is triggered.

Heist Bonus:

This feature is a free spins round, however, being Elk Studios it has a few extra dimensions to it.  To trigger the bonus three or more of the Lake's Five symbols must land on the reels, this will award ten free spins initially.  As the spins play more free spins can be awarded. To do this key symbols must land on reel one, three or five.  For each new key, one extra spin is awarded.  If three or more of the key symbols are on reels one, three or five it will award the following:
•    Reel One: Wild symbols move a position to the right.
•    Reel Three: All wilds become sticky wilds
•    Reel Five: Wilds move towards the top of the reels.
As part of this bonus feature, any wilds landing in the same position will increase the multiplier for any wins up to 3x.  When the feature ends, all wild symbols will walk off the reels leaving a trail of new wilds behind.
