Big Bass Bonanza Megaways Slot Review – Pragmatic Play

It has only been a couple of days since my last Pragmatic Play slot review, the most recent was for the game titled ‘Bounty Gold’. Which has a max win capped at 5,000x and a Respin feature with money symbols. Today we are learning all about ‘Big Bass Bonanza Megaways’, which is set to release November 18th across all sites.

The original game is titled ‘Big Bass Bonanza’, originally released 3rd December. This new release sticks with the original theme choice and familiar visual aspects. The background is set under the sea, with a coral reef setting on either side of the bubbled reel set. Symbols are identical to the original, but with some small modern updates.

Big Bass Bonanza Megaways has a setup of 6 reels by 2-7 rows, this includes up to 46,656 Megaways. This slot is medium variance with a set RTP of 96.70% and a max win capped at 4,000x. You can bet from £0.20 – £100.

Big Bass Bonanza Megaways Pay Table & Symbols

There are 13 symbols in total, this includes 5 low-paying symbols. These are represented by 10, J, Q, K, and A. There are also 4 premium symbols, these are represented by bait boxes, dragonflies, fishing rods, and fishing floats. In addition to these regular symbols is a wild symbol, money symbol, fisherman symbol, and scatter symbol. The highest paying symbol is the fishing float premium, which pays 50x for 6 across all reels. Wilds substitute for all symbols except the scatter and fisherman symbols. Wilds appear on reels 2-5 and on the top row. Money symbols take random money values on each spin when they land.

Big Bass Bonanza Megaways Features

There is a Tumble Mechanic active during every spin. Winning combinations are paid out and all winning symbols are removed from the reel set. The remaining symbols fall to the bottom of the reel set and empty positions are replaced with new symbols falling from above. Tumbling continues until no more winning combinations occur.

Landing 3 or more scatter symbols during a base game spin will trigger the Free Spins Feature. 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7 scatters award 10,15,20,25 and 30 Free Spins. During spins, each fisherman symbol collects values from all Money Symbols on the reel set. All Fisherman symbols that hit are collected until the end of the round. Every 4th Fisherman symbol collected will retrigger the feature, awarding 10 additional spins and a multiplier for the Money Symbol Collection. All wins are increased to 2x on the first trigger, 3x on the second, and 10x on the third. After the third retrigger no more retriggers can occur and no more additional spins are awarded. Randomly when 1 – 2 Fisherman symbols land with no fish dynamite can be thrown on the reel set and fish will appear in random positions. Also randomly when 1-2 Fisherman symbols land with no fish a bazooka will occur and can change all symbols except Fisherman.


Overall, I think this slot is an exciting slot sequel for a popular title and uses the well-known Megaways mechanic. With a max win capped at 4,000x and a Free Spins feature with multipliers up to 10x. Be sure to try out the game for yourself on release and check out our exclusive casino offers.
