Big Bass Bonanza by Pragmatic Play
No fishing round-up would be complete without a nod to one of the most celebrated slot fishing series of all time, Big Bass Bonanza. This nautical slot affair throws up a cacophony of anticipation, tension and reward, just like real fishing, whilst you hope the "big one" is coming up any time soon!
Following a 5x3 set up with 10 paylines, the heart of the action lies within the game's Caught Bass Scatter and the Fisherman Wild game symbols. There's also a 2,100x max win potential up for the taking. Landing the Scatter symbol in multiples of 3, 4 or 5 will get you 10, 15 or 20 Free Spins, respectively.
Once you enter the Free Spins Bonus round, a Fisherman Wild symbol is added to the grid; in true Wild style, he can replace all other game symbols except for the Caught Bass Scatter. You’ll also notice in this round that the green fish symbols have cash values attached to them. Each time a Fisherman Wild lands, he collects all the cash values from these fish as a prize total, and if more than Wild lands on a spin, it will also collect!
That’s not all that this bearded fisherman has to offer either. Each time a Wild appears, the Wild is collected in a meter above the reels. Every 4th Wild symbol collected will give you a retrigger to add more Free Spins and increase the multiplier! Now, that's certainly a lot of action for one Bonus Round!
Go Fish! by Inspired Gaming
Inspired Gaming venture below the surface to a colourful coral reel filled with tropical bounty in Go Fish!. First things first, this game follows a slightly unusual format, showcasing 3 standard reels with one wrap-around reel; you'll also find Cascading Reels and plenty of Multipliers and Free Spins.
As for symbols, Standard playing card symbols take up the bulk of the game symbols. Five brightly coloured fish, sharks, and seahorses are the game's higher-value symbols. Look out for the Pink Question mark, which serves as a Mystery Symbol and, to some degree, a Wild. All pink question marks which land on a particular spin will transform into a random matching symbol. The Puffer Fish is the game's Wild, and the Go Fish! icon is the Scatter. Every winning symbol forms part of a cascade.
The game’s eye-catching features include Expanding Wilds and the Whale Whirlpool Bonus, which begins when the whale swims behind or in front of the reels and flips its tail, creating a whirlpool and a new reel combination. Three or more Go Fish! Scatters anywhere in view during the base game award the Free Spins Bonus. Each winning Cascade increases the unlimited multiplier by one. During the Free Spins round, water wheel symbols replace the Go Fish! Scatters on the reels. Getting three or more water wheel symbols in view awards the Water Wheel Bonus. Now that's certainly a lot of underwater action, with a 12,500x max win potential thrown on top!
Golden Fish Tank by Yggdrasil
Okay, this is technically not a fishing slot, but it's so endearing we had to add it in! This game follows a 5x3 reel set up with 25 paylines, and takes us to a fish tank filled with features and tropical fish, and in true Yggdrasil style, the graphics in Golden Fish Tank are of exceptionally high quality. You'll notice the game's lower paying symbols follow the standard playing card set. The higher-value symbols take the form of bright fish. The Yellow and Green Fish is the most valuable standard symbol, with 5 in combination rewarding you with 12.5 x your total stake.
The game's action revolves around the Free Spins round, where you can kick off with up to 10 Free Spins. The number of Scatters you get to trigger the round will reward you with up to 5 Pick Me symbols. These surprise symbols could be extra Free Spins, Random Wilds, Stacked Symbols, a 2x Multiplier, and more Wilds and Sticky Wilds to boost your winning potential!
One thing's for sure; there's a huge variety of nautical-themed slots to choose from. Some are low-volatility classic slots, while others provide a wild, high-volatility journey that offer fantastic potential wins. Needless to say, there's a "reel-y" great fishing based game for everyone!
