Go big game, big prize fishing in the 4 Fantastic Fish slot from 4ThePlayer. With 6 reels and 4,096 ways to win, fish symbols contain cash prizes up to 100 x stake. On reel 6, 4 jackpot fish symbols can land which can award prizes up to 10,000 x your total stake. In the Fishing Respins Bonus feature, cash prizes land and reset the respins tally. Scatters open closed reels for more prizes. Fill a reel with fish so the shark doubles the prizes on that reel and allows for more fish to land on that reel. This can lead to 15,000 x stake prizes as a whole. Read more about this unique take on the classic fishing theme in our 4 Fantastic Fish review.

The 4 Fantastic Fish slot is played with 6 reels, 4 rows and 4,096 ways to win. You simply need 3 or more matching symbols on successive reels, starting from reel 1, to get a winning combination. For the highest value symbols, only 2 are needed for a win.

Bet options range from 10p to £80 per spin. Look out for plus and minus buttons either side of the main Spin button which allows you to change your stake easily. All is clear and easy to digest as the Paytable displays symbol payouts in proportion to your bet amount. For non-UK players, there’s an Autoplay function with single win and loss limits.

4-fantastic-fish-slot-base-game

With a big game ocean fishing theme, the 4 Fantastic Fish slot is 4ThePlayer’s answer to Fishin’ Frenzy. Colourful and bright, the aim is to land the biggest catch of the day. It’s not quite the Deadliest Catch TV series as it has a friendlier and more joyous feel visually.

With an upbeat soundtrack, symbols include A, K, Q, J and 10 royals all with fishing hooks on them. The medium value symbols are represented by tackle boxes, fishing rods, crabs, seagulls and fishermen. The fisherman symbol is the best paying giving you 1, 2, 5 or 10 x your total stake for 3, 4, 5 or 6 in combination.

The fishing boat is the wild symbol and substitutes for every symbol apart from the Marlin fish bonus scatter. Other symbols you’ll see include various sized fish which contain cash prizes. There’s also a fish bone symbol and 4 jackpot symbols (more details on these below).

4 Fantastic Fish Mobile

4 Fantastic Fish is a multi-device slot as 4ThePlayer created it using HTML5 technology. Available to play on laptop, PC, tablet and mobile devices, you’re in for a treat if you’re a mobile slots player. You can opt between Classic and Big Reel Portrait Mode. The latter sees the reels take up to 80% of the screen. The reels are stacked on top of each other spinning right to left and paying top of bottom. This unique extra is available across all 4ThePlayer slots.

4 Fantastic Fish Bonus Features

The 4 Fantastic Fish slot comes with 6 bonus features. Fish symbols as part of a win will give you cash prizes. There’s also a Giant Squid that give or improve wins. Look out for 4 jackpot fish symbols for prizes up to 10,000 x bet. Finally, there are respins where scatters open closed reels. Filling a reel with fish will see the shark double prizes and open up more positions for more wins.

Cash Ways feature

4-fantastic-fish-slot-giant-squid-bonus-feature

Look out for fish symbols which contain cash prizes. The bigger the fish, the greater the cash prize. Fish symbols can land on any reel. The cash prizes grow bigger and bigger from left to right. They range from 0.2 to 100 x your total stake.

When you get a winning combination of fish symbols (from left to right beginning from reel 1). The Cash Ways feature is triggered. The total sum of all cash prizes is then awarded as your prize.

The Giant Squid Bonus feature can also randomly activate on any spin. The squid appears and rearranges fish symbols. You are guaranteed to get a fish symbol win or have your existing one improved.

Big Game Jackpots feature

More importantly, big game jackpot fish symbols can land on reel 6. With 4 of them to land, any one will trigger the Big Game Jackpots feature when part of a fish symbol win. Here’s what symbols to look out for and what they pay:

Jackpot Fish Prize
Ultra Sailfish 10,000 x stake
Mega Hammerhead Shark 2,000 x stake
Super Swordfish 500 x stake
Big Tuna 100 x stake

Fishing Respins Bonus feature

4-fantastic-fish-slot-fishing-respins-bonus-feature

To play the Respins Bonus feature, you need to land 3 or more Marlin fish respin scatters anywhere in view. Each reel that a scatter lands on will be open during the feature with the other reels closed. Furthermore, any fish symbols that land on the triggering spin are also locked on the reels (whether it’s an open or closed reel).

You then begin with 3 respins. All symbol positions then spin with new fish symbols landing on open reels locking in place. The respins counter also resets to 3 when this happens.

Look out for the Marlin fish respin scatter landing on a closed reel. That reel is then opened for future respins. This allows for more positions to be open meaning a higher chance of landing fish on them for more prizes. The Giant Squad can appear and move a fish symbol from a closed reel to an open reel and lock it in place.

Finally, you have the Shark feature. This is triggered when you fill an open reel completed with locked fish symbols. A shark swims up the reel and collects the cash prizes from all fish symbols. The total sum is multiplied by 2 and held in the top position of the reel. It will appear as fish bones.

The other reel positions below it are then reopened giving you the chance to land more fish symbols and more prizes. If you fill that reel again with fish symbols, the process is repeated with the shark bones prize doubled too.

Players outside the UK can buy their way into the respins using the Buy feature. This will simply cost you 60 x your total bet.

Originality








The 4 Fantastic Fish slot follows a long line of fishing themed games. Well designed, 4ThePlayer have clever ramped up the fish prize element compared to that in classic slots such as Fishin’ Frenzy (Blueprint Gaming) and Big Bass Bonanza (Pragmatic Play).

In terms of the gameplay, the fish symbols can give you decent cash prizes. The Giant Squid does help you land a win or improve it randomly which is a nice touch. However, look out for the big game jackpot symbols which could land you with a 10,000 x stake bonus (the sailfish). The amounts on offer are much bigger than those on offer from fixed jackpot slots by Pragmatic Play and Microgaming.

The Fishing Respins Bonus feature will deliver the biggest payouts naturally. Hopefully you can land scatters on closed reels allowing for more fish to land. I like the unique fact a shark swims up a filled reel, doubles the prizes and allows for new fish to land.

In summary, 4ThePlayer has managed to combine the popular respins feature with fish cash prizes. Yet again the gameplay is unique. Whilst other respins slots like Money Train 2 offer bigger wins (50,000 x bet), the amounts of on offer in 4 Fantastic Fish really make other similar themed games little fish in comparison.

If you like fishing themed slots with cash prizes, Golden Catch Megaways (Big Time Gaming) offers big gold fish prizes with multipliers, free spins, a 96.53% RTP rate and 31,430 x stake max wins.

Pros
  • 15,000 x stake max wins
  • 4 jackpots - Ultra Jackpot worth 10,000 x bet
  • Unique respins feature
Cons
  • Volatility is very high
