Only for toughened anglers: If you love the rough seas and pulling in a great catch in true Ernest Hemmingway style, the Old Fisherman online slot machine is just the thing for you.

Old Fisherman is the perfect online slot game for practiced seadogs at our safe online casino. No need to worry about the perfect storm here: Symbols from the world of fishing and the sounds of the waves provide the background for this exciting video slot from Gamomat. The 5 reels, with your choice of either 10 or 20 paylines, contain everything the Old Fisherman needs for the catch – rope and barrel, a hardy fishing boat, his trustworthy compass, and a tobacco pipe to relax with at the end of his day’s work, as well as the familiar card symbols 10 through ace.


In normal play, the card symbols can get you tidy little sums when they turn up three in a row on any payline, beginning from the far left-hand reel. The compass and tobacco pipe have a little more to offer, and when the fish barrel and ropes show up, they bring you even twice as much. It starts to get interesting when three or more fishing boats ride a payline on the reels, and the Old Fisherman captain is there as a wild symbol on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 to replace any of the other symbols, except the scatter, to make up a winning combination on an active payline.

But the aim of any fisherman worth his salt is obvious: Bring in the haul! In Hemmingway’s novella ‘The Old Man and the Sea’, the ominous catch was a marlin, which proved perpetually unlucky for old Santiago. Not so with this fun online slot game. The fish you need to catch here is a much friendlier king salmon. The salmon is also the scatter on this penny slot, and when he turns up twice, he brings you a cash win. Three or more salmon bring you not only cash winnings – they also trigger a really exciting bonus round of free spins.


If three or more king salmons surface on the reels along an active payline, you win a round of free spins: 3 salmons win you 5 spins, 4 win you six spins, and 5 salmons (aside from bringing you a huge payout in and of themselves) gets you 7 free spins. It doesn’t sound like much, does it? Ah, but the bonus free spin round on Old Fisherman is just a bit different from the free spins you are probably used to on other online slot machines. Here, the reels are arranged differently than in normal game play. You can win additional free spins during the free spin round – up to 140 free spins! You can’t lose there. And there’s a reason that those additional free spins aren’t an old fish tale: You will notice that the barrels and ropes, the compass, the boat, tobacco pipe symbols are often stacked in this round. Oh, and of course the king salmon too! That means that multiple wins and more free spins are a great possibility if you have activated all 20 possible paylines.


Although the gamble feature isn’t available in autoplay mode, it is always an option for you at the end of a winning spin or a free spin round. If you think your catch is worth more than your winnings, you can always take it to market and try to double its value with one of the Old Fisherman online gamble games. There is the classic ‘red/ black’ game, where you have to guess the colour of the next card drawn from the deck, as well as a ladder gamble, where you try to pick a higher value than the computer. You have a fifty-fifty chance to double your winnings when you bet online with the gamble feature. But remember – it’s either double or nothing. You could lose your catch of the day completely.


Old Fisherman is an entertaining online slot machine from Gamomat, the renowned video slot manufacturer. Online betting with this penny slot doesn’t have to be expensive. You can play for as little as 1 cent per payline (from 10 cents a spin) or bet the maximum of € 5 on each of the 20 paylines for as much as € 100. Whatever floats your boat. Or just play the online slots for free in fun mode for a while until you get your sea legs. Then you can ride the tide and gamble for real money online at our legal, safe online casino.
