Wild Fishing Wild Ways is a new casino slot from Jelly, taking us on a fishing adventure not too different from Blueprint’s Fishin’ Frenzy The Big Catch, and Reel Kingdom’s Big Bass Bonanza. One difference is that the 10 paylines have been exchanged for 243 ways to win, which can increase to 1944 ways thanks to growing reels in the Wild Ways feature. The Wild Ways is a big flirt with Fishin’ Frenzy, where the wild fisherman can haul in fish from the reels, paying cash prizes. Catching the biggest fish on the fifth reel will pay 100X the bet. The players will also find a free spins feature, with spins that can be retriggered. It’s time to go to sea once again.
Wild Fishing Wild Ways is a video slot from Jelly with 5 reels, 3 rows, and 243 ways to win. In the Wild Ways feature, reels 3, 4, and 5 can grow 6 positions high, giving 1944 ways to win. The Min.bet is 0.25, and the Max.bet is 100. Wild Fishing Wild Ways has an RTP of 95.1% but also comes in versions of 94%, 91.5%, and 86%. The volatility is mid/high, and the max win is 1209X the bet. This fishing story has a hit frequency of 28.2%, awarding wins a little more often than on every fourth spin.
You’ll notice some sweet tools when you get to know the sea. The features are Wild Symbol, Scatter Symbol, Fish Symbol, Wild Ways, Free Spins, and Bonus Buy.
Wild Fishing Wild Ways takes place in a cute cartoon-looking fishing village. The reels are framed by wood, and a fishing boat is bobbing up and down to the left. Behind the boat are some houses, and in the upper right corner is the open sea. The music is primarily made by guitars and violins in a countryside sound, with some effects sounding like they’re taken from a cartoon. To make a win, the player needs to land at least 3 of the same symbols on adjacent reels, going left to right, starting with the first reel to the left. Wild Fishing Wild Ways is available on desktops, notepads, and mobile phones.
The symbols in Wild Fishing Wild Ways look much like those in Fishin Frenzy. The lower-paying ones are 10, J, Q, K, and A. They award between 0.4X to 0.8X the bet for a win containing 5 symbols. The higher-paying symbols are worm, fishing rod, rubber boat, and a bird looking like a combination of a seagull and pelican. These symbols will award between 1X to 6X the bet for a combination of 5 symbols. The Wild Symbol is a gray-bearded fisherman dressed in a yellow coat. He substitutes all symbols except the Scatter, depicted by a fishing boat. Fish Symbols, worth between 0.5X and 100X the bet, can appear on reels 3, 4, and 5 during the Wild Ways feature.

What features are available in the slot Wild Fishing Wild Ways?
The features are Wild Symbol, Scatter Symbol, Fish Symbol, Wild Ways, Free Spins, and Bonus Buy.
The Wild Symbol, depicted by an old fisherman smoking a pipe, substitutes all regular paying symbols but not the Scatter or Fish. Landing wilds on the first two reels activates the Wild Ways feature. Landing wilds on the first two reels and one scatter on reels 3, 4, or 5 will trigger the free spins.
The Scatter Symbol is a fishing boat saying “bonus.” It can appear on reels 3, 4, and 5. Landing 3 scatters activates the free spins with 10 spins. Landing 2 wilds and 1 scatter will also trigger the free spins.
Fish Symbols have a cash prize which can be won in the Wild Ways feature. The symbols can appear on reels 3, 4, and 5 but are only of value in Wild Ways. You can’t make regular wins with fish. The values of the fish are 0.5X, 1X, 2X, 3X, or 4X on the third reel, 4X, 5X, 6X, 8X, or 10X on the fourth reel, and 10X, 15X, 20X, 50X, or 100X on the fifth reel.
The Wild Ways feature is triggered when landing wild symbols on reels 1 and 2. The wild fisherman will start reeling in the cash value of all fish, starting on the third reel before advancing to the fourth and fifth. All fish will be collected as long as there’s at least one fish on each reel. Fish on the fourth and fifth reel will not be collected if there’s no fish on the third. Wild Ways will trigger the free spins if a scatter lands anywhere on reels 3, 4, or 5.
The Free Spins feature is activated by landing 3 scatter symbols, or a combination of 2 wilds and 1 scatter. The player is awarded 10 spins, and activating the Wild Ways within the feature will award 5 more spins. Wild Ways can also expand reels 3, 4, and 5 up to 6 rows high, giving the player up to 1944 ways to win. The reels will reset to 3 rows on every spin. The free spins end when the player runs out of spins.
For 60X the bet, you can buy a spin that guarantees to trigger the free spins.
It’s not the first time we’re heading out to sea, and most probably not the last either. Wild Fishing Wild Ways is a pretty cute predictable little game. The players don’t have to worry about any surprises spinning the reels. If you’re unfamiliar with Fishin’ Frenzy or similar video slots, you might initially think that the Wild Ways feature is a fresh breeze. It’s a nice feature that doesn’t take long to understand. It’s even more pedagogical in Fishin’ Frenzy, where the fish is hauled over the screen to the fisherman. The round cartoon-looking shapes in Wild Fishing Wild Ways make the game appealing, but don’t expect breathtaking graphics.
The max win of 1209X the bet feels a little low for a slot with mid/high volatility. The Wild Ways can award some big catches, but you probably need to combine the feature with the free spins to scope up the biggest wins. The RTP of 95.1% is another con, being at least a percentage point below the average casino slot RTP. Also, watch out so you don’t end up playing any other version with even lower RTP.
Wild Fishing Wild Ways from Jelly is a fishing adventure with a wild fisherman, hauling in cash-value fish with his fishing rod.
