Wild Marlin! - Big Game Fishing Slot Information

Slot players seem as crazy about fishing as Beliebers are about Justin Bieber. There’s a constant flow of new fishing escapades released pretty much all the time. If you happen to be a fish crazy Belieber, you could for sure turn off the pretty lame music of Wild Marlin! - Big Game Fishing for some Baby, baby, baby tunes. The layout of the game is also familiar to many other fishing games, with the majority of the slot being underwater, while the sealine and some clouds are crammed in at the top of the screen.

There are two fishers, one male and one female, who is also seen in some of the game’s logos. One of them is sitting in a fishing boat at the top right corner, holding a fishing rod. It seems like the player is able to choose which fisher should be hanging out on top of the reels, although we couldn’t choose but were presented with the female in the demo version. The game’s logo is in the top left corner, and the rest is underwater. Diving down under the sea surface, we find corrals in purple, pink, yellow, and other colors. Some colorful fishes are swimming around at a rather comfortable chilling speed. The reels are divided by a thin line in the blue water, and to the left of them is the Epic Strike Bonus Ladder showing you how much you can score in the feature with the same name. To make a win, you’ll need to land at least 3 of the same symbols on a payline, starting with the first reel to the left. The game is available on desktops, notepads, and mobile phones.

The lower-paying symbols in the salty seawater are 10, J, Q, K, and A. They pay from 0.5X the bet to 0.60X the bet for 3 on a winning line, and 1.50X-2X for a complete winning line of 5. The higher-paying symbols are also five. You get between 0.60X and 1X the bet for landing 3 of an anchor, octopus, crab, fishing boat, or captain’s hat. If you make a winning line with all 5 of them, you’ll win between 2X to 5X the bet. The blue and white marlin is the game’s Wild Symbol, substituting for all mentioned symbols. It’s also the most valuable symbol on his own, paying 10X the money for 5 on a winning line. The Scatter Symbol is an oyster with a pearl in it. You need 3 scatters to activate the free spins.

Intro - Free Spins

Wild Symbol

A big marlin is the game’s Wild Symbol. Apart from substituting all symbols, it’s also collected with the Epic Strike Symbol for a possible win in the Epic Strike feature.

Scatter Symbol

The Scatter Symbol is a yellow pearl in a white oyster shell. It can only land on reels 1, 3, and 5. Landing 3 scatter symbols on the grid awards the player 10 free spins.

Epic Strike Symbol

This is a special symbol of a golden coin with a fish on it. The Epic Strike Symbol is collected together with the Wild Symbol after any spin. Landing 5 or more of the two symbols in total awards a win in the Epic Strike feature. Each Epic Strike Symbol is also collected during 9 spins and transformed into Bank’ Em Wilds Frames in the Bank’ Em Wilds feature on the tenth spin.

Wild Symbol

Epic Strike Feature

Every Wild and Epic Strike Symbol that lands on a spin are collected and counted. If you land a total of 5 or more symbols, you’ll be awarded a prize from the Epic Strike Bonus Ladder. This is how much the symbols pay:

5 Wild/Epic Strike Symbols = 1X the bet

6 Wild/Epic Strike Symbols = 3X the bet

7 Wild/Epic Strike Symbols = 10X the bet

8 Wild/Epic Strike Symbols = 25X the bet

9 or more Wild/Epic Strike Symbols = 100X the bet

The prize is paid out apart from any regular winning line.

Bank’ Em Wilds

There’s a counter to the left of the reels under the Epic Strike Bonus Ladder. It counts the spins from 1 to 10 before resetting and starting all over again. Every Epic Strike Symbol that lands on spins 1-9 is collected and transformed into Bank’ Em Wilds Frames. The Bank’ Em Wilds feature is triggered on the tenth spin, changing all symbols within the randomly placed Frames into Wild Symbols. When the spin is over, the counter starts over, collecting the Epic Strike Symbols for the next 9 spins. This feature is available during the base game.

Free Spins

Free Spins

You’re awarded 10 free spins by landing 3 Scatter Symbols anywhere on the reels. During the spins, 4 Bank’ Em Wild frames will be placed randomly on the reels, turning the symbols in their respective positions into wilds. This means that you’ll have a minimum of 4 wilds on every free spin. The free spins can be retriggered by landing 3 more scatters. The feature ends when the player is out of spins.

Wild Marlin! - Big Game Fishing Slot Conclusion

Once again, we have sailed on open waters hunting for riches in a video slot. Wild marlin! - Big Game Fishing isn’t a super adventurous fishing escapade though. The waters are actually really calm considering we’re trying to catch a monster that can weigh over 800 kg. The Bank’ Em Wilds feature is a smart way to create a game within the game, giving the player an extra valuable spin every tenth spin. The Epic Strike feature is another way to win money, giving the player a chance to score up to 100X the bet without making a win the regular way.

The free spins also run smoothly at sea, with the Bank’ Em Wilds frames roaming around, giving us 4 wilds on every spin. Overall, this game has quite a lot to offer. The medium volatility makes it into a relatively serene fishing trip though. If you want some more action at sea, you can check out highly volatile Wild Wild Bass or Golden Catch. The latter also offers a way bigger max win than Wild Marlin! - Big Game Fishing’s 1440X the bet. This game’s RTP of 96.86% is better than both of the mentioned games, and it’s quite a bit above the average video slot RTP.

Wild Marlin! - Big Game Fishing is a casino slot where the immense wild fish can help create wins in several different ways.
