Fishing Frenzy Megaways Slot Review – BluePrint
Blueprint has honestly shocked me and got me excited for one of their new releases coming soon. I don’t think many people in the community were expecting this slot. Regardless, I am so happy the provider thought of this concept. Without further ado, let’s jump right into our Fishing Frenzy Megaways slot review.
Set to launch ‘28th April‘ is ‘Fishing Frenzy Megaways.’ The original slot was released back in 2014. Even being 5 years old this slot is still played a lot and showcased on streams. The original is also seen a lot in land-based casinos on slot machines in the UK especially.
This remake has the same visuals, but I can see some improvements to give the sequel a crisp, fresh 2019 look. There is a simple under the sea background keeping most of the attention on the slot itself. I love the look of the new version and can easily see Blueprint are continuing with their Megaways route and I can see why with their latest big hit creations.
Recently released slots Legacy Of Ra Megaways and Temple Of Treasure Megaways shook the community with their volatility and fun gameplay. There are no base game features like the original. Therefore, you are playing for the base game possibility and bonus feature as the main attraction.
This slot has some great volatility with a max win of 10,000x (£250,000), set RTP of 95.02% and up to 50 free spins possible. You can bet £0.10 – £10.00 as the max bet. You can also buy the bonus feature for 100x your chosen stake which is the standard buy amount in most slots. With the addition of Megaways, this slot screams potential.
Fishing Frenzy Megaways Slot Review Symbols & Paytable
This slot has 12 symbols in total which include, 5 low paying symbols represented by 10, J, Q, K, and A. These have the original art style with a theme font and different vibrant colours. There are also five high paying symbols represented by bait boxes, life buoys, fishing reels, and pelicans. There are also different sized fish symbols which appear on reels with a water background and connect no matter what size the fish are. The fisherman symbol is only appearing in the bonus feature and a boat scatter to unlock the free spins feature. The highest paying symbol is the pelican symbol paying 20x for 6 across a pay line.
Fishing Frenzy Megaways Slot Review Bonus Feature
To activate the free spins feature you need to land 3 or more boat scatters anywhere on reels, the more scatters you land when activated, the more spins you are awarded.
- 3 Scatters Award = 10 Free Spins
- 4 Scatters Award = 15 Free Spins
- 5 Scatters Award = 25 Free Spins
- 6 Scatters Award = 50 Free Spins
During free spins, you need the fisherman to land on reels when this symbol lands and fish symbols are present the fisherman will catch them. Fish symbols will all have different cash values starting at 2x-50x your bet size. When the fisherman catches the fish, you will be awarded all the cash values on the fish caught.
If more than 2 fisherman land at the same time, the fish values will be counted twice and so on for more fisherman symbols. This free spin feature has always been unique and fun to play. But very heartbreaking when plenty of fish are on reels ready to be caught, and the fisherman is nowhere to be seen on reels. What a bummer! This bonus has plenty of potential and with the chance of 50 free spins, it could be crazy. With the help of Megaways more fish can now appear on reels and so can the fisherman.
Overall, I had so much fun trying out this slot. I love the original Fishing Frenzy slot, even though the fisherman would never appear, it’s a great slot. The Megaways addition is an excellent idea from the provider and really adds some great volatility, and the slots play differently with this addition. I highly recommend you try this slot out on release on all good casinos.
