Lake’s 5 Slot Review

Released: April 2018

The Lake’s 5 game can be found at casinos offering Elk Studios software. Elk Studios are a small but quickly growing casino software developer primarily focusing on the mobile market. At the present time they only offer slots games. Players should be aware that this software provider includes ‘betting strategies’ as an automated feature. These should be avoided. They offer no mathematical gain to the player and increase the risk of large losses in comparison to your bankroll. As a standard Elk Studios do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within their game paytable. As such we can say that the House Edge of Lake’s 5 is 3.7%.

In order to save his monkey friend, Lake has assembled a crack team to pull off a heist!

Lake’s 5 is a 5 reel game that does not use standard paylines. Instead any 3 or more matching symbols in any adjacent positions on adjacent reels starting from the left side of the reels constitutes a win. This is equivalent to 178 standard paylines.

In the base game there is no Wild symbol when playing Lake’s 5.

There are two bonus features when playing Lake’s 5. The first bonus feature is triggered when you receive 2 of the ‘Mr Lake’ bonus symbol anywhere on reels 1, 3 or 5. When this happens the Mr Lake symbol will become Wild and after you have been paid both reels with the Mr Lake symbol will move down one position while all other reels respin. This process will repeat until there is only one Mr Lake symbol left visible or you receive a third Mr Lake symbol.

The second bonus feature is activated when you receive 3 of the Mr Lake bonus symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5. When this happens you will be awarded 10 free spins. During the free spins each time you receive a ‘Key’ symbol you will be awarded an additional free spin.

If you collect 3 Key symbols on reel 1 during the free spins you unlock ‘Walking Wilds’. Walking Wild symbols are symbols you can receive on reels 1, 2 or 3 for the remainder of the free spins. Each time you receive a Walking Wild, the Wild symbol will move one position to the right with each spin until it leaves the reels.

If you collect 3 Key symbols on reel 3 during the free spins you unlock ‘Sticky Wilds’. Sticky Wilds are symbols you can receive on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 for the remainder of the free spins and that lock in place for the remainder of the free spins.

If you collect 3 Key symbols on reel5 during the free spins you unlock ‘Climbing Wilds’. Climbing Wilds are symbols you can receive on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 for the remainder of the free spins. Each time you receive a Climbing Wild, the Wild symbol will move up one position each spin until it leaves the reels.

If multiple Wild symbols land on the same position during a spin any resulting wins will be multiplied by the number of Wild symbols that are stacked. Free spins end when you have no remaining spins or you reach the maximum win of 216000 coins.


Bonus feature and House Edge wise Lake’s 5 is a solid game. The House Edge isn’t the lowest we’ve seen, but certainly isn’t off putting. The game features are very free spins orientated, but there’s still some fun to be had here with the Wild symbol movements. However this game has “Advanced” betting strategies build into it that we’re just not comfortable with. The word ‘advanced’ suggest better and far from being better, these strategies offer the player no improvement over flat betting. In fact by betting more, mathematically the player will lose more in the long run. This is a really poor practice. We’d be highly critical of any website advocating these types of bogus betting strategies. A game developer doing this is even more problematic. Without this feature this game would naturally rate significantly higher.
