Big Catch Bass Fishing Megaways is a new casino slot from Blueprint Gaming in which you’re invited to yet another fishing trip where big basses are our target. This war between Blueprint and Reel Kingdom is getting hilarious. Well, calling it a war might be overexaggerating things, but after Reel Kingdom started with its Big Bass series, Blueprint themselves have been very active in revamping the Fishin’ Frenzy saga. After all, Reel Kingdom has become a top provider due to Big Bass, so we don’t really mind Blueprint trying to reap the rewards of the increased popularity. But as always, we’re hoping to see some innovation going into this new product. Let’s dig in!
Big Catch Bass Fishing is a video slot from Blueprint Gaming that features a setup of 6 reels, 2-5 rows, and up to 15625 payways. Players can choose between a Min.bet of 0.2 and a Max.bet of 100. The game has a solid, default RTP of 96%, but it could be lower depending on which casino you play on. It has a hit frequency of 20%, meaning that on average, you’ll get a winning combination on every 5th spin, and a bonus frequency of 1 in 140, implying that on average, you’ll trigger the bonus game once every 140th spin. Lastly, the game is played at mid-high volatility and can net you a max win of 5000x (or 10000x if you buy the bonus.)
This is a fairly straightforward fishing game, so you won’t be caught off guard by any crazy mechanic. The features are Scatter Symbol, Free Spins, and Bonus Buy.
The game takes place just under the surface in a beautiful, canvas-like lake. Our minds travel to Canada or Alaska, with mountains and spruce trees surrounding the lake. We wish that this was more highlighted, as it’s a beautiful location, but since we’re under the surface, we don’t see much of it. But yeah, sweet music and a relaxing environment, good stuff.
Big Catch Bass Fishing Megaways can be played on all common mobile devices and desktops. A winning combination is created by landing 3 or more matching symbols on consecutive reels, starting from the leftmost reel.
The lower-paying symbols include 10, J, Q, K, and A. A winning combination of 6 with one of these pays 2x-5x the bet. The higher-paying symbols consist of fish, fishing gear, dragonflies, and boats. Six-of-a-kind with these pays 10x-200x the bet. The Scatter symbol is depicted by a bass with “BONUS” written on it.
What is the max win in the slot Big Catch Fishing Megaways?
You can win up to 5000x the bet.
What features are available in the slot Big Catch Fishing Megaways?
The features are Scatter Symbol, Free Spins, and Bonus Buy.
Landing 3 or more Scatter symbols triggers the Free Spins feature.
Landing 3, 4, 5, or 6 Scatters will award 10, 15, 20, or 50 Free Spins, respectively.
The bonus game is similar to any other fishing game. You collect cash values on fish by landing a fisherman, and if you land 4 of them throughout the bonus, you are awarded another 10 spins and an increased multiplier (1x->2x->3x->10x). Thankfully, it’s a bit more intricate than that. Before the bonus starts, you will get to do the Pick A Fish game, where up to 5 upgrades can be revealed:
Tag - Activates a Cash tag on the selected symbol, allowing it to be collected just like a fish.
+Collect - Cash values will be collected multiple times.
Re-Spin - All none Cash and Fisherman symbols will be respun when you land a Fisherman, until you don’t land a Cash symbol.
+Games - Up to 5 additional Free Spins will be awarded.
Next Level - Makes you start on 2x multiplier instead of 1x.
Pick A Fish - Additional Pick A Fish positions will be added to the trail (you’ll get to pick more features if you collect enough Fishermen)
Minimum Megaways - Guarantees a minimum amount of Megaways. Can award 5000, 10000, or 15625 Megaways.
If you want to jump straight into action, the Free Spins feature can be bought at a cost of 100x the bet.
Our excitement about new fishing games faded a long time ago. Blueprint’s Fishin’ Frenzy series and Reel Kingdom’s Big Bass Series pumps out more games than some providers do in total, so we’ve kind of seen everything now. It’s gotten to the point where NoLimit, perhaps the most innovative provider in the game, are releasing Ugliest Catch, which is certain to “roast” all the fishing games.
Alright, we’re done complaining about the overuse of this theme now. After all, it’s incredibly popular, and definitely here to stay. And also, don’t get us wrong. Despite our complaints, we like fishing for cash. The games naturally provide colorful adventures, and the core mechanic is phenomenal in all its simplicity. The addition of picking features is really neat, and although it’s not a new phenomenon, it’s a nice addition to a game like this, making it more interactive.
Big Catch Bass Fishing Megaways by Blueprint takes you out on another fishing trip, where a fun little picking game awaits.
