Take to the ocean and try and reel in a big catch of coins in Fishin’ Frenzy. It’s a 5 reel, 10 payline slot from Blueprint Gaming that comes with a bonus round that awards 10, 15 or 20 free spins. Look out for the fisherman scatter in those free spins that adds extra prizes when it lands alongside fish symbols. Play from between 10p and £400 per spin.
Fishin’ Frenzy is a simply designed game. With the ocean in the background, you’ll see the usual collection of royal values (which are shaped like fish) as well as a selection of angling related imagery.
In order of value are tackle boxes and rubber rings which awards up to 50 times your stake per payline followed by the fishing rod which pays up to 100 times your stake. The best of the standard symbols is the seagull which awards 200 times your stake if you see 5 of them land on a payline.
The fisherman is the wild. It substitutes for all other symbols and delivers payouts of 1, 10, 50 or 500 times your stake if you land 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline. There’s also a blue fish symbol which pays 1, 5 or 20 times your stake. These fish come into their own during the feature round.
Land 3, 4 or 5 of the fishing boat scatter and you’ll trigger that Free Games feature – on offer are 10, 15 or 20 free spins. You’ll notice that all of the blue fish symbols come with a cash value attached. If you land the fisherman symbol during the free spins, he’ll reel in any blue fish symbols and collect all of the cash values attached. Each individual fish can deliver prizes of up to 50 times your total stake. Land a good haul of them and you can bag a mighty catch of coins.
Fishin’ Frenzy is a pretty basic game. The visuals are done cartoon style and are simply done. The gameplay is equally straightforward. The Free Games feature can be worth hitting though thanks to the attached values that come with the blue fish symbols.
It’s not something we’ll be rushing back to play regularly but for some simple watery action, then Fishin’ Frenzy does the job. I recommend you try NetEnt’s Lucky Angler which is a potentially more rewarding slot.
