Big Catch Slot Review
Big Catch is a 5 reel 20 payline game produced by Novomatic. The theme of the game is a fishing adventure deep undersea. With the Big Catch Bonus feature you will literally go fishing and try to hook the biggest catch possible. The sound of water and bubbles make the game even more realistic.
Big Catch slot features few fishing symbols: Big Catch logo, rusty anchor and the spongy playing cards (ace, king, queen, jack and 10) which increase you chance of having a winning combination. Big Catch is a medium volatility game. More often than not you will be a winner. The minimum bet amount is 40p and the maximum is £100 per spin for all 20 paylines.
5 Big Catch logo symbols stacked on all 5 reels awards you with 50 000 coins. Apart from the big catch logo symbols, the biggest wins will come from the fishing bonus feature and if you like to gamble, the gamble option can make you double your winnings and if it doesn’t you often get a mystery prize.
The pink starfish is a wild symbol and only appears on reels 3 to 5. It substitutes for all other symbols to make winning combinations. The symbols can appear stacked on all 5 reels. A stacked symbol is when you get 3 identical symbols on the same reel. Stacked symbols increase your chances of winning by completing winning combinations.
This Fishing Bonus feature can be triggered randomly after any win on an active payline. You’ll know you’re in the bonus round when the reels start filling with water. It will be time to go fishing! The fishing line and hook will move across the reels just select a reel and the hook will descend below the reels. Your goal to get the prize catch.
When you hook a fish it gives you a price – the bigger fish you get the bigger the reward. You will keep on fishing until you fish an old discarded boot or until you catch the prize catch. This bonus feature is extremely rewarding as you can win up to 500 times your stake if you catch the prize catch.
There is also the Gamble feature which is pretty standard. However, if you see a mermaid lucky loser symbol, you will get a mystery prize which can also be gambled. The gamble feature is optional, if you don’t want to use it just ignore the gamble button and click on spin. The gamble feature is also available during the fishing bonus.
Even if you’re not a fan of fishing you will be impressed with the game graphics and sounds. What’s even more spectacular are the big wins you can get. It might even change your mind about fishing. I found Big Catch to be a medium variance game with big wins definitely possible. I really like the theme though but still falls short of popular Novomatic slots like Book of Ra Deluxe or Lord of the Ocean.
