Fishin' Frenzy The Big Catch Megaways slot from Blueprint Gaming is based on the original Fishin' Frenzy Megaways slot game from the same developer, later imitated in a way by Pragmatic Play with their Big Bass Bonanza Megaways slot edition. Developers love this theme, indeed we can go back as far as Microgaming's old slot Alaskan Fishing! Here we get the undersea background, jaunty music and naturally a nautical theme to the reels. So can we reel in our bankroll from the clutches of the deep or will this water have already been over-fished?
On the reels...
There are 6 reels of 2-5 rows each resulting in 64-15625 to win on Fishin' Frenzy The Big Catch Megaways slot. Symbols are single except for the Fish although more than one can appear on a reel. The Fish are stacked and pay scatter values each way as long as they appear on the first 3 reels or more in order. They pay 10x bet for each way of 6-of-a-kind, 5x for 5, 3x for 4 and 1x for 3. There are no Wilds in the base game or random modifiers and the symbols pay for 6OAK Pelican 200x, Reel 100x, Ring or Tackle Box 50x with five card values at either 5 or 2.5x for each full way. Your Boat scatter can appear on all reels too and winning tiles are not replaced in cascades.
You need 3 scatters for 10, 4 for 15, 5 for 25 or 6 for 50 free spins. Now you get a Fisherman Wild on reels 2-6 and those stacked Fish now have their greyed-out cash values of 2-50x active. Each Fisherman Wild in view will collect those values once. You get upgrades here too - collect 4 Fisherman Wilds and you fill the meter on the left and get 5 extra spins. What's more, the 7 Fish values of 2 to 50x will upgrade when this happens so the values are 10-50x. Upgrade a second time and +5 spins again are yours and now the Fish are 20-50x. Finally, upgrade for a third time and all Fish will display 50x bet so if you fill the meter again you will only get +5 spins. We are told the win cap is 50,000x bet here but I fail to see how this would be possible, or anywhere near it.
Fishin' Frenzy The Big Catch Megaways slot has a 95.02% RTP and is pretty mundane to watch, play and listen to as it's all about the bonus round. This isn't hard to land but prepare for abject disappointment unless you see at least 15 spins for 4 scatters! In testing, even 25 spins for 5 scatters rarely got more than 2 or the 3 upgrades possible and when I did upgrade all the Fish to 50x them amazingly the Fisherman seemed to have scarpered back to port as he was nowhere to be seen! Trust me, you won't get a big catch here..
