Hooking a Big Bass Bonanza™

October 31, 2023

The Big Bass Bonanza™ puts the ancient art of fishing front and centre of its reels and background graphics, as anyone with a taste for the maritime way of life will revel in its look and feel. This is down to some very nice visual touches, such as the reels being demarked by streams of bubbles as well as a soundtrack that blends fishing related sound effects with an upbeat melody that would not sound out of place in a tropical beach resort.

Once players have decided to cast their proverbial line and settle in for an online casino’s version of a spot of angling, they will be treated to 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 paylines, all of which are submerged beneath the deep, blue sea.

The slot’s graphics mainly depict action beneath the water’s surface, as air bubbles rise from the sea floor to demark the game’s reels. The game’s protagonist is a burly fisherman who dons waders and a beany hat to reel in a total of 12 different symbols onto the reels. The most sought after of these standard symbols is the Bobber Float, which can snare a significant win if 5 of them appear on one payline.

Free Spins Feature

In Big Bass Bonanza™, the main special symbols are the Fisherman (Wild) and the Struggling Bass (Scatter). The Fisherman can appear on all reels during the Free Spins round and substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter. If 3 Struggling Basses are netted on the reels, then a total of 10 Free Spins are awarded, with 4 Scatter symbols delivering 15 Free Spins, and 5 Scatter symbols hooking a bumper catch of 20 Free Spins.

When the Free Spins mode is activated, any Fisherman Wild symbols that appear are counted and collected in a bar above the grid. There are 4 stages: with each 4 Fisherman Wild symbols collected, players will move up a stage. Each level up triggers 10 extra Free Spins, which are bolstered further by additional Multipliers ranging from x1 to x10 and are activated when the Fisherman lands together with one or more Fish money symbols.

Dynamite Feature

Dynamite fishing is a unique way of netting large quantities of fish and plays a key role out on the reels of Big Bass Bonanza™ to create an interesting and eye-catching feature.

The feature comes into play when just 1 lone Fisherman Wild symbol appears on the screen during the Free Spins round. This eventuality compels the Fisherman to launch into action with a lit stick of dynamite, which he tosses onto the reels. Upon exploding, the red stick of dynamite adds Fish money symbols across the grid, which will then pay as normal.
