Spot of Fishing
Sea fishing isn’t exactly the most accessible pastimes in the world, especially if you live in the middle of a landlocked country. So why not enjoy the next best thing by spinning the reels of these free Reel Catch slots from Novomatic software. The game takes players out on a boat into deep sea territory where the biggest fish have freedom to roam – will you get lucky enough to get a big bite from one of these magnificent creatures?
Keeping you company on the cruise for wins is a bikini babe with other icons depicting some important fishing gear from baits, buoys and reels. What more do you need? Well, if you are so inclined, you might be a bit underwhelmed by the game’s lack of 3D graphics and special animations but, then again, the game still looks nice and fresh and clean.
Reel Em In
Fishing is all about being in the right place at the right time and players of this angler themed slot can give themselves the best chance of catching a win with 40 paylines that are permanently fixed on the reels. So, if you play for real money, you will simply need to find some matching icons along these win lines from left to right. The most lucrative prize winning combo is a row of five bikini babes because this will multiply the chosen bet per line by 1,000x.
The range of bets available to play with begins with 40 game credits with a max bet worth 8,000 credits. This might seem like a lot but punters should know that the game’s interface doesn’t indicate the currency of the credits in play or how the game credits translate into real money balances.
If you are familiar with playing video slots at online casinos, then we are sure that you are aware that these gambling games tend to come with a range of bonus gameplay elements. Reel Catch is no different and punters can hope to claim some extra prizes with some fun and hopefully rewarding bonus features. To begin with, the game has two wild symbols – a fisherman and a swordfish – the first of which only appears on reel 1 while the latter appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. Whenever both wilds appear on the reels, the angler dude will expand to cover the first reel while the fish wild will move towards him thanks to the reel slide feature.
On top of that, players can trigger a bout of 20 free spins by finding at least three boat scatters on the reels. These scatters don’t need to appear in a payline pattern and they will multiply the total bet by up to 10x when five fall on the reels. If you are lucky enough to find the expanding wild on the reels during the free games feature it will stick in place until the bonus game ends.
The Open Water
Nothing beats being out in the fresh open air with a fishing rod in your hands. If you can’t get out on to the sea as often as you would like then you can at least spin some fishy slot machines such as Lucky Angler by NetEnt, Wild Catch by Microgaming and The Angler by BetSoft Gaming – the last of which is one of the latest releases from the popular 3D slot machine maker.
Catch of the Day?
Reel Catch might not be the most impressive of video slots to look at, but it sure does offer some exciting spinning action with wagers worth up to 8,000 coins for a 200,000-coin jackpot. Helping punters find those big catches are some fun gameplay features including expanding wilds, sliding wilds and a free spins bonus game. The slot is mobile-optimised too, so you could even give yourself a chance to find a winning spin whilst you are out fishing for real fish!
