- but why not try one of these?
Sea fishing is arguably a real man’s sport; get up early, load the boat up with beer and sandwiches and head out onto the ocean waves in the slightly optimistic hope of landing the big one. Wild Catch is a great-looking new online slot from Microgaming which takes that theme and runs with it, giving the player two bonus features into the bargain.
Wild Catch is a five reel slot with 243 ways to win and the reels spin below a scene containing the small fishing boat heading out to sea with it’s intrepid fishermen on board. The symbols are all crisply drawn and the lower value ones are 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
Higher value symbols are all theme-related and so from low to high value we have a a humorously-labelled weighing scale, an squid, the fishing boat and a trophy awarded for catching the biggest fish. There’s a swordfish wild symbol which activates the mini-game and the scatter features our fisherman in a lifebuoy.
It’s always good to have two bonus games in one slot and they’re as follows:
Landing three of the swordfish wild symbols will trigger this mini-free spins round and you’ll be awarded five spins with all prizes subject to a 3x multiplier.
The good news is that every time you land a winning combination which includes the wild swordfish you’ll be awarded one extra spin so this can be a lucrative bonus game.
Scatter Feature Free Spins
When this feature starts you have a 1x multiplier but for every winning combo you create which contains a wild, the multiplier will increase by one. The highest possible multiplier available is 10x but you’ll probably need 15 or 20 spins to get anywhere near that. Still, it’s a lucrative bonus round as you can see from the video below.
It’s the bonus games and the graphics which make this game a winner; both bonus features seem to get triggered fairly regularly which is always good news for those players who like the extras.
