Big Bass Bonanza is an upcoming 14th December 2020 release from Pragmatic Play. Based around a fishing theme we see a modifier which brings some bang with it, throwing dynamite into the waters to reveal some, hopefully, big fish with high cash values attached. You also get a free spins bonus round which features the possibility to upgrade to a 10x win multiplier along with 3 potential retriggers.
Value for Money
Although Big Bass Bonanza is marked at 4/5 on the volatility scale it felt like it was lower. After playing through 30 plus bonus round it seemed like you would be very hard pressed to get more than a 100x win out of it. The free spins bonus is quite fun to play and gets exciting once you near the 10x and get a couple of retiggers in. The dynamite bonus was a nice touch but it was very rare to see and hopefully will come up more often in future plays. Overall, Big Bass Bonanza is a reasonably entertaining slot but nothing special and maybe not for those who like to chase the higher volatility slots.
Big Bass Bonanza Stats
December 14th 2020
Big Bass Bonanza is a medium/high volatility slot which is capable of delivering wins up to 2,100x on a 5 reel 3 row grid with 10 fixed paylines. The RTP is good at 96.71%. Spins range from 0.1 coins right up to 250 coins, so whatever your bankroll is you’re sure to be covered here.
During the free spins or base game you may see that a red stick of dynamite appears along with a Fisherman Wild symbol. When this happens it will explode on the reels on a few selected spaces and reveal fish with cash values on them which the fisherman will then collect. It seemed pretty rare that this feature triggered though.
Free Spins Bonus
Land 3, 4 or 5 Scatter symbols for 10, 15 or 20 free spins respectively. During the free spins you will see that there is a meter above the reels. This has fisherman symbol on it and you will need to get 4 of these symbols during the free spins to upgrade the multiplier bonus and also get 10 extra free spins. Every 4 of these symbols which you get will retrigger the bonus and give you 10 extra free spins. There are 3 levels, 2x, 3x and a 10x multiplier if you can get 12 symbols. so, theoretically the maximum number of spins is 50, if you started with 5 Scatters and managed to work your way up through the bonus to 12 fisherman symbols.
Each time you see a fish symbol land as well as the fisherman Wild symbol the cash values displayed on the fish will be collected by the fisherman. If you have the 2x, 3x or 10x multiplier in play then that will be applied to the value of the fish. The dynamite bonus is also active in the bonus, but it rarely appears.
Big Bass Bonanza rolls along to a bouncy type theme tune and reels and looks somewhat lighthearted. The base game is set under the water and you can see seaweed and coral whilst the reels are separated by bubbles rising to the surface.
Lower paying symbols start with a 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace which all pay 10x for 5 of a kind.
Premium symbols are Fish which also have a random monetary value attached to them, then a fishing tackle box, a fly, a fishing rod and a green and red float as the top paying symbol giving you 200x for 5 of a kind.
Wild symbols are a fisherman with a wooly hat on holding a fish and proudly displaying his latest catch. Scatter symbols are a fish on the end of a fishing line.
