Big Bass Bonanza Slot RTP, Details & Wager Limits

The action in the Big Bass Bonanza slot takes place on 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 paylines. Land 3 matching symbols on 1 of the game’s 10 paylines, starting from the leftmost reel and you’ll get yourself a winner.

You can try and net a big win at stake levels that range from between 10p and £250 per spin. Autoplay is available if required. You can run between 10 and 1,000 autospins. There are options for quick and turbo spin modes too. Payout levels are shown in cash amounts and change as you alter your stake level. This keeps everything nice and simple to keep tabs on.

The Big Bass Bonanza RTP is 96.71% which is very high for an online slot. The game is also in the high range when it comes to volatility. On a scale of 1 to 5, we’d put the variance at a 4.  The maximum win from a single spin is 2,100 x your total stake.

Theme – Audio & Design Features – go on a fishing expedition

With a fishing theme, there’s a simple, cartoonish quality to the design in the Big Bass Bonanza slot. The visuals here are simply drawn but that’s to be expected given the back to nature feel. With the jaunty backing track in the background, it comes together pretty well.

Set against an underwater backdrop, the blue reels feature brightly coloured A to 10 royals and a collection of higher value, angling-related symbols. In order of value are fish, a box full of tackle, a fly and a fishing road. The multi-coloured float is the most lucrative symbol. Land 5 of these on a payline and you’ll pocket an award equal to 200 x your total stake.

The rather jolly looking fisherman is the wild. He appears in the bonus round only and substitutes for all symbols except the scatter.

The colourful cartoon visuals and straightforward gameplay are a very solid combination for a mobile slot and just what you’ll find in Big Bass Bonanza. It can be played on tablet and desktop devices too.

Big Bass Bonanza Bonus Features

Pragmatic Play has kept things nice and simple as far as features go in Big Bass Bonanza. The only feature is the free spins round. There are some extras attached to your free spins though which means this feature is well worth landing.

Free Spins feature

The Free Spins feature is triggered in the usual manner by landing 3, 4 or 5 fish scatters on the same spin:

  • 3 scatters = 10 free spins
  • 4 scatters = 15 free spins
  • 5 scatters = 20 free spins

So far, so standard. Joining the action during the free spins is the bearded fisherman who is the game’s wild. He substitutes for all the standard symbols when he makes up part of a winning combination.

You’ll notice that the green fish symbols come with cash values attached. Each time a wild lands, he collects all the cash values from these fish as a prize. For example, if you saw fish that had prize worth £2 and £5 attached and there was a wild on the screen, he’d collect those prizes to give you an award of £7.

Better still is if you have more than 1 wild on the same free spin. Each wild collects all the fish prizes. Going back to our example, with 2 wilds on display, you’d collect 2 lots of £2 and £5 for an overall prize of £14.

That’s not all that the fisherman wild has to offer either. Each time a wild appears, the wild is collected in a meter above the reels. Every 4th wild symbol collected will give you a retrigger to add extra free spins and increase the multiplier:

RetriggerWilds CollectedExtra Free SpinsMultiplier
1st4 wilds102x
2nd8 wilds in total103x
3rd12 wilds in total1010x

In order to play with the 10x multiplier, you will need to collect 12 fisherman wilds in total. When it comes to free spins, there’s a total of 50 free spins available. After the 3rd retrigger, no more retriggers are possible.

Big Bass Bonanza Review Summary – try and land a whopper

I enjoyed the Big Bass Bonanza slot. The height of sophistication it ain’t but the cartoon design and simple gameplay are very appealing. It’s a simple game that focuses on the only bonus feature.

The Free Spins feature can be well worth hitting too, especially if you collect enough wilds to catch a few fish bonuses and bring the retriggers with those all-important multipliers into play.

If you enjoy trying to land a whopper, Big Bass Bonanza is a decent enough place to cast off. If you want to go fishing, the classic by Lucky Larry’s Lobstermania 2 IGT is a good game to play. As to is Wild Catch slot by Microgaming.
