All About Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways™ Slots
Blueprint are the biggest of the Megaways™ studios right now – their output dwarves even that of the game format’s originator, Big Time Gaming. This time they’ve turned to the world’s wackiest fishing contest as the backdrop to the game. Of all Blueprint’s efforts to date this is one of the weakest – it follows a pretty generic pattern of gameplay and there are no added features to set the game apart, but nonetheless Megaways™ slots fans will no doubt enjoy the ride.
Themes, Gameplay, Symbols and Pay Tables
This slot takes place against a blue backdrop of water and sky. You will see storks, small blue fish, fishing rods, lifebuoys and tackle boxes on the reels, as well as playing card values from 10 to Ace which are, as per usual, attached to the lower payouts. The bird is your go-to high-value symbol, as it delivers a payout worth 200x your stake for a full 6-symbol combination. The next best is the fishing rod, which pays 100x the bet for 6 of a kind. You can join the frenzy from 10p to £10 per spin.
Unlike other Megaways™ slots, Fishin’ Frenzy only has up to 5 symbols per reel. There are six reels in all making the maximum number of lines 15,625 on each spin.
The substitution symbol is the proud fisherman with his triumphant catch. He will replace all standard symbols to help form winning combinations.
A boat heading off into the sunset is the Scatter symbol and a feature trigger. Landing 3, 4, 5 or 6 of the boat Scatters anywhere in view earns you 10, 15, 25 or 60 free spins respectively. During free spins, you will see the blue fish in different sizes, each corresponding to a specific cash prize. Whichever fish is reeled in by the fisherman, its prize will be credited to your account. The most valuable fish is worth 50x the stake.
Whenever you grow tired of waiting for something to happen, you can simply click on the Feature Bet button to the left of the reel set and initiate the free spins round for a cost of 100x the stake. Feature Bet gives you control at moments when Lady Luck seems to have excused herself from the competition.
The Slot Buzz Verdict
This is a very pared-down game from Blueprint, with none of the exciting features of others like Wolf Legend Megaways™. Some of the best bits – cascading wins and multipliers – are missing and the reduced expanding reels makes this a very underwhelming experience. It leaves us wondering if Blueprint threw this together on a Friday afternoon before dashing out to the pub. Worth a spin? Only for those looking to complete the set!
