Video slot released by IGT in 2005
Lobstermania is an all time classic with fun cartoon characters, quirky humor and a great sound track. The best way to understand why this game has been such a big hit over the last decade is to get out there and play it for an hour or so - play all of the great bonus games and you will be a fan forever
Lobstermania is still found in every casino that I have been to in vegas, although it is rapidly disappearing. Whereas most casinos used to have multiple Lucky Larry machines, now many of them only have one.
Also, you will find that many of them have very old and so faded (burned out) screens, as they are so ancient. This is the case for many games now that are legendary, like Texas tea slots and money storm slots. I'm sure we will see the same for older wolf run slots and Cleopatra slots too one day, but they will all still be great fun to play
So, why are such old machines still in Vegas, you may ask. The reason why is very simple - it's an absolutely brilliant game, with one of the most fun (and funny) bonus rounds you will even find in an online slot
Anyway, if you have never played the game, it might be a good idea to get out there quick and play it before it's gone for good. They don't seem to be producing any new ones, so the next couple of years might be your last chance in the main casinos (I'm sure some of the older casinos will hold on to their games for a few more years to come)
Surprisingly, one of the places where I have seen quite a few of this particular game is in the high limit slots rooms. This must be a cult hit with the bigger players out there. Just out of interest, it is has also been prominent in all of the UK casinos I have visited - of course to many of the UK players, this is a 'new' slot machine to them.
One of the bonuses starts when you get three Lobstermania symbols up on a winning line. Once this happens those symbols turn into life guards rings and you then pick one which will reveal the number of buoys you get in the 'buoy bonus'. You can see this game in the video above. Then you pick your buoys and the fisherman (Larry) begins to pull in the lobster pots. some have lobsters (which give you prizes), some are empty and some contain absolute monster lobsters which give you really big bonus wins
