About Lake’s Five
What you’ll notice about Lake’s Five from ELK Studios is that it doesn’t have paylines. Rather, the game has a specific 178 Ways to Win format, so your total wager isn’t calculated based on the number of paylines you wish to bet on. On every spin, you’ll be able to trigger one or more of the 178 ways to win. You can wager anywhere from .20 coins to 100 coins per spin, and there are even-built-in betting strategies to help maximise your winning potential:
- Optimiser: bet level changes based on selected percentage of your balance (1% to 10%).
- Leveller: bet level is increased by two after five losses in a row
- Booster: bet level is raised after one loss
- Jumper: bet level is raised after one win
You can choose any of these betting strategies and select your starting wager based on your personal budget. While there is no guarantee that you’ll secure a huge win, they add a little bit of strategy to the game.
The Heist Bonus game is activated when three scatter symbols (keys) land on the reels, and you’ll get 10 free spins. Every extra key that lands will give you one additional free spin. As you play the game, you’ll collect more keys on reels 1, 3 and 5. Once you collect three keys on each reel ,you’ll unlock the following features:
- Walking Wilds: moves one space to the right every spin
- Sticky Wilds: stays in place on the reels for the free spins
- Climbing Wilds: moves upwards one row every spin
When any of these wild symbols cross paths, you’ll get a multiplier worth up to 3x on that win!
During the base game, another fun feature is available: Wild Re-Spins. When two scatters land on the reels, you’ll get a re-spin during which the scatters turn into walking wilds!
