Lakes Five from ELK Studio is a heist movie theme pokie loosely based on the Ocean’s Eleven, Twelve, Thirteen and 8 movies. Instead of 11 smart criminals, Mr Lake the Elk has five animal accomplices in the form of Mike the Monkey, Genie the Goldfish, Alf the Alligator, Elmer the Elephant and Pete the Parrot. The smart and charismatic group are going to use their varied skills as they attempt to take down the evil Mr Romano by breaking into his office, stopping his evil trade in wild animals and making off with some of his illegal proceeds as they do. Can this game lead you to riches? We take an in-depth look at this exciting game, popular for its brilliant back story, bonus features and even a choice of betting strategies. Read our full review below.
This game has a coin bet range of between $0.20 and $100, allowing you to bet up to 20 coins in a spin. The game has five reels across a 5x5 table and offers a stunning 178 ways to win. There’s an exciting Free Spins bonus round, plus a re-spins feature.
As with all ELK games, Lake’s Five is one of the more slick and tastefully designed pokie games on the market. The reels are set against the backdrop of a city skyline at night with Romano Tower clearly in view to the left of the reels.
The basic symbols are made up of the five accomplices of Mr Lake, with Genie the Goldfish being the highest earner. A medical bag and goldfish bowl symbol are two further winners. Bonus Symbols include Mr Lake himself, who acts as the Wild Symbol. The Wild is a substitute symbol that substitutes for all other symbols except for the Scatter or Bonus Key.
The Scatter is the game logo. Two or more of these trigger the re-spins feature, during which the scatters turn into the Mr Lake Wild symbol, substituting for all except the bonus key during the re-spins. The reels with the wilds move one step down with each re-spin. Three scatter symbols anywhere on the screen will trigger the Heist Bonus Feature Game. For this feature the scatter symbols will turn into Bonus Key symbols and trigger 10 Free Spins. Additional Bonus Keys will award extra free spins.
During the Free Spins feature, keys will be collected on reels 1, 3 and 5, awarding Sticky, Climbing or Walking Wilds as they come and releasing the captured monkey. The Walking Wild walks one reel to the right for each spin., the Sticky Wild stays in place for remaining spins, whilst the Climbing Wild moves up one row with each spin. If any wild walks, or climbs, into another, then a multiplier is generated for the next spin.
