Alaskan Fishing

Any fisherman worth his weight in bait knows how good the fishing can be in Alaska. The salmon and trout just about jump on the pole and yell “take me.” Not everyone can afford to go on that fun and wild Alaskan vacation, but they can have a great time playing the Alaskan Fishing Pokie game from Microgaming.

This game has all the great fishing symbols you would expect to see in Alaska like the fishing boats, seaplanes, fishing trophies, reels and tackles. You also find symbols for the best fishermen in Alaska, the bears and the eagles.

The Features

The avid fisherman/gamer can find 243 paths to a winning spin in the Alaskan Fishing Pokie. The biggest jackpot to be won on this pokie is 1, 215, 000. This makes this a popular pokie for all. This is a five reel pokie and the betting ranges from a penny to five pennies.

The top bet is $300. Of course this really depends on your  betting credit. The gamer can customize their own experience on Alaskan Fishing. Another great feature allows you to continue playing on auto play while you are pulled away from the game.

How To Play The Game

The five reels of the Alaskan Fishing Pokie are set under the water to meet the fishing theme. The imagery, colour and graphics support the theme well; as does the animations. The sound effects, music and fascinating Alaskan background is inspiring.

As a player you will definitely get that feeling of being in Alaska and throwing your line into a cold rushing stream or lake. When spinning the player wants to get as many Alaskan Fishing Logos as they can because this is the wild symbol and can be used for any other symbol except for the Tackle Box symbol, which is the scatter, and the bonus symbol, which is the fisherman symbol. If the player can spin up at least 3 scatters they will win 15 free spins.

While using the free spins the winnings will double. If the player gets the fisherman bonus symbol on the first and last reel the Fly Fishing Bonus Game will be activated.

Bonus To Be Won

The Fly Fishing bonus game is activated with a breathtaking screen of the fisherman standing by a river in the shadows of the beautiful Alaskan Mountains. In the river specific spots are marked and the player must pick five of those spots. Once the spots are chosen the player will lower their line into each spot and pull out their prize. The player has the opportunity of pulling out anywhere from 2 to 15 times their original bet.


The pictures of Alaska are inspiring and the graphics, music, animation and colours all bring the Alaskan Fishing theme to life. Although the Alaskan Fishing Pokie has been around a while and does not offer the precise and vivid visual effects of some of the newer pokies; this game is popular in spite of it and is worth playing.
