Hook a Fish!
The interface of the game is presented on a five reel and three row layout, so this is a regular design for gamers to play on. Here, you’ll find the included symbols of the game, which start with the regularly seen A, J, K, Q, 10 and 9 icons. The remainder of the symbols are all thematically relevant, and there are four higher paying icons incorporated. These are the scale for the weighing machine, with different colours representing different fish weights. There’s also the bait hook in the shape of a pink squid, a shot of the fishing boat is the third icon, and finally, the fourth symbol is represented by the first prize gold trophy. This one allows a maximum pay out of 4,000 coins for when five show up on a winning pay line.
In addition to the reels, rows and symbols, Wild Catch also includes a total of 243 different ways to win, and this is not something that players are able to customise. However, you do have the option of changing the amount of the wager you place per spin, which is done firstly by altering the value of a single coin. A range of between $0.01 and $0.50. You can also adjust the amount of coins you play per round, and this offers a choice of between one and 10. Therefore, a maximum overall wager of $150 can be played per round.
Rods at the Ready
This fish-themed game includes a couple of special features, as previously noted, and these start with its wild icon. This is represented by the swordfish, and as a wild icon it will stand in for any other icon on the reels in order to form a winning combination, with the exception of the scatter. It will only appear on reels two, three and four, and if you do manage to spin three, you’ll also trigger five freespins. During this round, all wins will be multiplied by three. During the wild feature, an extra freespin is awarded to you for every wild icon making an appearance in a win.
Further to this, there’s the aforementioned scatter symbol incorporated into the game, and this is the fisherman posing through a safety ring. This pays out wherever it should show up on the reels, and if five come into view in any location on the reels, you’ll receive a maximum pay out of 6,000 coins. Three, four or five of them in scattered locations will provide you with a total of 10, 15 or 20 freespins, respectively. During this feature, all wild wins are multiplied by an initial multiplier of times one, and any wild included in a win will increase the multiplier up to a maximum of ten times.
