Play Reel Catch Slot for Free & Review

Reel Catch is a 5 reel, 40 payline slot from Novomatic that is available to play on all devices from 40p a spin. With an angling theme, it uses a Reel Slide feature where the angler wild expands to take over reel 1 with any swordfish wilds on the other reels moving left to give you guaranteed wins. There’s also a Free Games feature where you can get up to 40 free spins – here, the angler wild reel is fixed throughout meaning any swordfish wilds will move left for guaranteed wins on each free spin they appear on.

Reel Catch is powered by Novomatic and comes with 5 reels and 40 paylines. Playable from 40p to £100 per spin on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, this angling themed slot benefits from a Reel Slide feature where you get an expanding wild with all swordfish wilds pulled to the left. There’s also a Free Games feature where you can get up to 40 free spins with a fixed wild reel.

Visually, Reel Catch is rather basic and reminds me a little of IGT’s Lucky Larry’s Lobstermania 2 – with a pale, blue sky as it’s backdrop and set on a lake, this angling themed offering has playing cards (A, K, Q, J and 10) as well as fishing rod reels, fish floats and lures as well as a bikini clad beauty – she is the most lucrative symbol giving you 25 times your stake for 5 across a payline.

You will also benefit from angler and swordfish symbols which are both wild – they form the bases for the Reel Slide feature. This is triggered when the angler wild lands on reel 1 and 1 or more swordfish wilds land on any of the other reels. The angler wild then expands to take over reel 1 (giving you a wild reel) – he then reels in the swordfish wild to the left-most reel (reel 2) to give you a guaranteed win.

This gets better in the Free Games feature which is played when you get 3 or more boat scatters anywhere on the reels – this will reward you with 20 free spins. Now, when the angler wild expands on reel 1 during the feature, it will remain held for the duration of the feature meaning you’ll have a wild reel for all free spins.

If any swordfish wilds land on the other reels during a free spin, they will move left to give you guaranteed wins. Finally, you can retrigger the feature once by getting 3 or more scatters giving you 40 free spins in total.

I really like Reel Catch as it’s fun and quirky – the Reel Slide feature has the potential to pay out big in both the base game and Free Games feature but your potential is bigger in the latter due to the angler wild reel being fixed for the duration of the feature. I found it to be a medium variance game with potential wins of 500 times your stake on each spin.

It’s not the best slot Novomatic has released but it looks fantastic, is fast paced and has potential to pay out nicely. Spectrum does remind me a lot of NetEnt’s Vegas Party though.
