There are some slots out there that really capture the imagination with their name. You think of Betsoft Gaming’s Miles Bellhouse and His Curious Machine or you remember Dr Frantic and the Lab of Loot by IGT. However, there are other slots that choose not to rely on their name to lure players in. The ones that prefer you not to judge a book by its cover. WMS Gaming’s Gold Fish is one of those slots. You pretty much know what you are getting with Gold Fish from the name and by simply looking at it – pond life or possibly more appropriately gold fish bowl life. Still, it is nice to get a game with a bit of originality amongst a sea of Egyptian, Roman and Leprechaun slots.
On the Reels…
Gold Fish is a 5 reel, 25 payline slot that is slots gaming in its purest form. You won’t be surprised to find that the symbols across the reels are represented by different fish and fish-related paraphernalia such as a fish net, coral rocks, sea vegetation, and fish food.
Land-Based vs Online?
Fans of the land-based version of this release will be pleased to hear that its transformation to the online domain has not seen it lose any of its popular features. The five fish that appear as symbols on the reels can each trigger a feature on every spin.
Five Fishy Features
The blue fish has the ability to reward up to 3 Super Scatter Spins. The red fish can trigger a Pick ’em Bonus feature where you can win up to 10x your bet. The purple fish pays out a cash prize that is multiplied by your line bet. You can win up to 500x your line bet with the green fish in another Pick ’em Bonus-style feature. Finally, you can trigger up to 20 free spins if you come across the iconic gold fish with all free spins awarded a random multiplier so you can really hit some big wins.
Win Big with the Fish Food Bonus
These features are not where the game starts and finishes. There is also a Fish Food Bonus which is triggered if you hit three or more of the fish food symbols across the reels. This is another Pick ’em Bonus-type of feature where you must pick and match fish food to feed certain fish and trigger the cash prize linked to that fish. If you manage to feed all of the fish listed then you will have the chance to pick one of three turtles to reveal a bonus cash prize.
Gold Fish has been a very popular land-based slot machine for WMS and its success has seemingly been transferred to the online genre. You will constantly be feeling that you can win on every spin. The five fish features ensure every spin has a potential for a win but the two tiered Fish Food Bonus also gives you a great chance to hit some big wins. This is one for the veterans and newbies alike.
