Trying to land a net full of coins is the name of the game in Perfect Catch, a fishing themed slot from Relax Gaming. Played using a 5 reel, 20 payline game engine, it comes with 3 special fish symbols that award multipliers, cash prizes or stacked wilds before turning wild themselves. There’s also a free spins round where the fish hit more regularly. Play on all devices from between 20p and £100 per spin.
There’s a gentle feel to the design here. Set against an underwater backdrop, you’ll see hook-style A to 9 royal values as well as a selection of objects relating to the fishy theme. There’s a tin can, an old boot and a frog. The best of the payers is the lobster which pays 5, 25 or 125 times your stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.
There are 3 special symbols that can appear on the middle 3 reels only. Each one delivers a special modifier extra:
- Red Fish – this awards a multiplier of between 2x and 5x then turns into a wild. Land more than 1 red fish and the multipliers are combined.
- Yellow Fish – here you’ll receive an instant win of between 1 and 25 times your stake. The fish then turns wild and a new payout calculation is made.
- Blue Fish – this adds 1 or 2 wilds on the same reel. It also turns wild and a new payout configuration is made.
The main attraction is the Perfect Catch Free Spins feature which is triggered by landing the weighing scale symbol on reel 5. Depending on where the random pointer lands, you’ll receive 8, 12, 20 or 30 free spins. The 3 fish appear more regularly during the free spins than in the base game so you can expect plenty of multipliers, bonus prizes and wilds.
The simple sound and visuals might give Perfect Catch a tranquil feel. We found it be a pretty volatile game though with top wins of 2,750 times your stake on each spin/free spin. It’s not a flashy game by any means but the fishy modifiers, especially in the feature make Perfect Catch worth a look. If you like fish (or fishing), Lucky Larry’s Lobstermania 2 from IGT and NetEnt’s Lucky Angler are worth casting a line out for.
