ABOUT FISHIN’ FRENZY: FORTUNE SPINS
Blueprint’s Fishin’ Frenzy: Fortune Spins slot is similar to Fishin’ Frenzy – the earliest game of the series – in many aspects. The betting range for Fishin’ Frenzy: Fortune Spins is set at a minimum of £0.20, while the maximum wager is £10. This is within the same betting range, even slightly better, than Blueprint’s Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways and Fishin’ Frenzy Jackpot King, where the maximum bet is £10.
The maximum possible payout of Fishin’ Frenzy: Fortune Spins isn’t specified, though it should not be too far off of Fishin’ Frenzy’s 5,000 maximum win. More information on the maximum payout will be provided in the next update of our Fishin’ Frenzy: Fortune Spins slot review.
THEMES, SYMBOLS AND PAYTABLE
As we noted, Fishin’ Frenzy: Fortune Spins is similar to the original game and other slot games in the series in many aspects. This includes many of the symbols and bonus features. The game’s regular, lower-value icons include royal card symbols from 10 to A, fish, a tackle box, bonus symbols, etc.
The fisherman icon is one of the slot’s best-value symbols and pays out a small cash win when for each fish symbol that appears on the same spin. You can access the Fishin’ Frenzy: Fortune Spins game menu to analyze the paytable and how much a specified number of special symbols pay.
RTP, VARIANCE AND PAYOUTS
The Fishin’ Frenzy: Fortune Spins RTP is not specified. However, the payout RTP (theoretical return to player) should be in close range of the payout rate of the first game of the series. The original Fishin’ Frenzy has 96.15%.
Blueprint Gaming has not yet specified the maximum payout potential of Fishin’ Frenzy: Fortune spins. Until the details are finalized, players are free to try this fresh edition on selected UK slots sites.
However, this is still considered a well-paying slot as Blueprint has upped the volatility level to medium, compared to the low volatility for Fishin Frenzy: Jackpot King, and low-to-medium volatility for Fishin’ Frenzy. The higher volatility mechanic indicates you will lose most spins until a single or sequence of consecutive wins pays. The win will come close to, or exceed the sum of your lost wagers over a specified period of time.
GAMEPLAY AND FEATURES
Fishin’ Frenzy: Fortune Spins is very easy to master as there are only 10 paying combinations on a conventional 5×3 grid. You can play regularly or set up the game in an auto spin mode for a specified number of automatic spins. The main features are few and easy to learn and include such components as bonus symbols, wilds, and the fortune spins feature.
FISHIN’ FRENZY: FORTUNE SPINS PAYOUTS
Fishin’ Frenzy: Fortune Spins has 10 pay lines, where combinations of between two and five matching symbols aligned from the leftmost reel will pay a win.
If three or more bonus scatter symbols appear on a single spin, a free spins feature will be activated, awarding a specified number of spin rounds. During the free spins session, the wild fisherman will pay for each fish symbol that appears anywhere on the reels.
FISHIN’ FRENZY: FORTUNE SPINS – FORTUNE SPINS FEATURE
The Fortune Spins feature is a proprietary bonus element featured in several of Blueprint’s slots, including 7’s Deluxe Fortune Spins and Luck O’ The Irish Fortune Spins 2.
The catch is – the Fortune Spins are activated only manually and will come at the cost of 20x your bet size. That means, whatever your bet amount is, with the fortune spins feature activated, you stake 20x your bet. Case in point, if you set your bet amount at £1, with the fortune spins the wager will be £20.
When the Fortune Spins are active, you play across four sets of reels where the fisherman symbol is always active. The fortune spins can also trigger the Golden Catch feature where the fisherman catches all fish appearing anywhere on the reels.
All things considered, Fishin’ Frenzy: Fortune Spins is a good-paying slot with interesting features, though it provides no new concepts. The design, symbols, game format, and even some of its main features can be easily compared to other Blueprint’s slot games such as Luck O’ The Irish, Fortune Spins 2, Fishin Frenzy Jackpot King, Fishin’ Frenzy: The Big Catch, and, mostly, to the original Fishin’ Frenzy.
