Lucky Fishing Megaways Slot RTP, Details & Wager Limits

Reels/Paylines: 6 reels + up to 117,649 ways to win

Stakes Range: 20p to £100 per spin

RTP: 96.97%

Max Win: 5,000 x stake per spin

The Lucky Fishing Megaways slot uses the Megaways mechanic and is played on 6 reels with up to 117,649 ways to win. Wins are awarded for left to right adjacent symbol combinations of any size.

It’s important to note that reels 1 and 6 can have 7 symbols, with reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 having up to 6 symbols along with 1 other symbol on the top row. The top row will spin independently to the main reel set from right to left.

Stakes range from 20p up to £100 per spin, thus catering to all pockets. This is a typical range for a lot of Pragmatic Play slots and you simply need to use the + and – buttons below the reels to adjust your total bet.

The Lucky Fishing Megaways RTP is 96.97%, which is well above the industry average. It doesn’t put it alongside the best RTP slots but it’s not too far off. It’s a great figure compared to many other slots around. But please be aware of the volatility. It’s in the very high range and rated as 5 out of 5 by the provider.

The maximum win is 5,000 x your stake. This is best achieved in the Free Spins feature due to the numerous free spins on offer and the increasing win multiplier.

The theme in the Lucky Fishing Megaways slot is clear from the title. The reels are set on a small pier by a lake, with water surrounding the reels and palm trees in the distance. There’s an occasional sound of a fly buzzing around too, which gets a little annoying after a while if you’re not spinning the reels.

The visuals are sharp but fairly basic, with not too much going on. The bold colours on a brown background do make them stand out, though. In terms of the soundtrack, it’s a constant beat with the sound of drums and a Hi-Hat that you wouldn’t usually associate with a fishing slot. Nevertheless, it’s harmless enough even if it doesn’t really match up well with the theme.

Land the Free Spins feature and the setup goes from day to night, with the audio speeding up to add to the overall intensity. A piano is added to the audio, and there are some effects that remind me of some late 90s Jamiroquai songs.

On the reels, the A-9 Royals make up the lower-paying symbols. These are joined by higher-paying fish of different colours – blue, green, yellow and purple. The purple fish symbol pays the most, awarding 0.5, 1, 5, 10 or 20 x your total stake for 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 in combination.

The game’s Wild is a fisherman, which appears on the top row only. You’ve also got Treasure Chest Scatters that can trigger the Free Spins feature and a Fishing Boat that can transform symbols into Wilds.

Lucky Fishing Megaways Mobile

lucky-fishing-megaways-mobile-slot

The Lucky Fishing Megaways has been optimised for mobile, tablet and desktop devices. Using the latest HTML5 technology, smartphone players can play this fishing game on iOS or Android. I would always recommend a laptop or PC though to get the full visual experience with Megaways slots, though.

Lucky Fishing Megaways Bonus Features

There are 3 bonus features to enjoy here, with the Free Spins feature being the main one. You can buy this bonus feature too in most territories outside the UK, and you’ve also got Tumbles, which are very common in a lot of online slots. There’s also a Fishing Boat feature that can turn symbols into Wilds. Let’s run you through everything, starting with Tumbles.

Tumble feature

After every spin, winning combinations will be paid out and then the winning symbols will be removed from the reels. The remaining symbols will fall to the bottom of the reels and the empty positions are replaced with new symbols falling from above. This process will continue until now new winning combinations are formed.

Fishing Boat feature

This feature is where the Fishing Boat symbol comes into play. This symbol will always take up 2 horizontal positions on the screen and can appear only on the top row of reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.

If it lands fully, all symbols on the reels below it are transformed into Wilds, thus potentially leading to some big wins. The feature will not trigger if the Fishing Boat symbol is not fully visible on the top row or does not change position after a tumble.

Free Spins feature

lucky-fishing-megaways-slot-free-spins-feature

Land 4 or more Scatters anywhere in view in the base game of the Lucky Fishing Megaways slot game to trigger this bonus feature. Here’s how many free spins you can get depending on how many Scatters you land:

Scatters Free Spins
4 10
5 14
6 18
7 22
8 26
9 30

Before the bonus round begins, if 1 to 18 spins were won, you may be able to gamble to win more free spins. But this part of the bonus round may not be available in your country.

If you choose to gamble, a wheel spins and stops on either a win or lose position. If you win, the number of free spins will increase by 4. If you land on ‘lose’, then all free spins will be lost. Here are the chances of winning during this part of the bonus round:

  • Gambling from 10 to 14 free spins = 62.81% chance of winning
  • Gambling from 14 to 18 free spins = 70.39% chance of winning
  • Gambling from 10 to 14 free spins = 75.02% chance of winning

The bonus round begins with a 1x multiplier. Every tumble during the Free Spins feature increases the multiplier by 1x. After each tumble, the total win of that tumble is then multiplied by the current win multiplier.

Land 3 Scatters during the bonus round to win 4 extra free spins

Buy Bonus feature

If you’re outside the UK, you can buy the Free Spins feature for 100 x your stake. You will see the option available to the left of the reels in the shape of a fish.

Originality








If you’ve ever played the Power of Thor Megaways slot, you’ve probably already realised that everything feels the same here. That’s because it is a carbon copy of that slot but with a change of theme. That’s not to say it’s a bad thing, because it’s not. Ok, so there are no new and unique features, but it plays really well and it’s certainly going to appeal to players who enjoy this theme.

What’s great about the Lucky Fishing Megaways slot is that the RTP rate is very generous and better than Power of Thor Megaways. It all plays in the same way, with an exciting Free Spins feature that has an increasing win multiplier with no upper limit.

Overall, I enjoyed playing this one, and I was very sceptical beforehand simply due to the number of fishing-themed slots already on the market. It’s not up there with the best around but it’s nowhere near competing with the worst slots either. It’s above average in my opinion, and I just wish there was a little more potential than the 5,000 x max wins on offer.

Looking for fishing-themed slots with the potential to offer much bigger payouts? Check out 4 Fantastic Fish (4ThePlayer) and Golden Catch Megaways (Big Time Gaming). Both come with some great bonus features and max wins of 15,000 x and 31,430 x max wins respectively.

Pros
  • 5,000 x max wins
  • Higher than average RTP (96.97%)
  • Increasing win multiplier with no upper limit
Cons
  • Nothing unique
  • Highly volatile (5/5)
