Wild Catch Slot Review – Stormcraft Studios
With such a big casino industry there are many new studios opening every year, to show off their own innovative ideas to the casino community. One studio who seems underrated to me is ‘Stormcraft Studios‘, first established in 2016. A game development studio currently based in South Africa, who create content exclusively for bigger studio ‘Microgaming‘. With 6 slot releases so far, including ‘Agent Jane Blonde Returns‘ and ‘Football Star Deluxe‘. Next from Stormcraft Studios is ‘Wild Catch‘, which is available to play now across all sites.
In Wild Catch, we go outdoors to lakes & river for a fishing day. This theme is a unique choice by the studio and a simple one. With a background set in the woods, with a river flowing through and mountains in the distance. Visuals have some great detail, especially within the various premium symbols. I’m glad we have something different visuals & theme-wise form the studio, it is very refreshing.
This game has a setup of 5 reels by 5 rows, this includes 50 set pay lines. Wild Catch is a high variance slot with a set RTP of 96.30% and max win capped at 9,000x. You can bet from £0.20 – £20.
Wild Catch Slot Review Pay Table & Symbols
There are 11 symbols in total, this includes 4 low paying symbols. These are represented by flies, hooks, rod reels and bait boxes. There are also 5 premium symbols, these are represented by 3 different images of fisherman in the waters, a blue-bordered female holding a fish and red-bordered male holding a fish. In addition to these regular symbols is a golden fish scatter and logo wild symbol. The highest paying symbol is the scatter, which pays 250x for 5 and red premium which pays 10x for 5 across a pay line. Wilds can substitute for all symbols except the scatter, wilds are stacked on reels 2, 3 and 4.
Wild Catch Slot Review Features
Rolling Reels can award multiple consecutive wins, winning symbols are removed and new symbols roll in.
The ‘Splashing Wild‘ feature can trigger in the base game. Once triggered the splashing wild can randomly appear to turn reel 2,3 or 4 wild.
Central to this slot is the ‘Free Spins‘ feature, triggered by landing 3 or more scatter symbols during one spin. There are 3 free spins features, 1 is unlocked and the other two are unlocked after triggering the free spins feature a number of times. Once unlocked these features are unlocked forever on your stake. Each wild stack grows every spin after the first spin during this feature. These options are;

Wild symbols are collected after every spin and roll the more wild collected., the higher the chance of triggering. 1 of 3 jackpots will be awarded, Bronze = 10x, Silver = 100x and Wild = 2000x. These jackpots can trigger in the base game and free spins.
