Game developer Big Time Gaming (BTG) has released its latest slot, the fishing-themed Golden Catch.
The brand-new game launched exclusively last week with Flutter Entertainment brands like Sky Vegas, Betfair Casino, and others, but will is set for a general release tomorrow (May 11th).
Golden Catch is a MegaWays mobile slot that uses six reels with up to 117,649 paylines. Since it’s based on the MegaWays engine, the number of paylines and symbols change with each spin for unpredictable gameplay.
The slot has an RTP of 96.53% with high volatility, which means you’re more likely to make infrequent large wins over regular small ones. It also requires a bet of between £0.20 and £20, with symbols like purple, red, blue, and green fish, as well as the usual A, K, Q, J, 10, and 9 symbols.
The Golden Catch slot comes with several special features. For example, anchor symbols are Wild symbols that substitute for all other symbols except Scatters, which are used to trigger the Free Spins mode.
Excluding Scatters, every symbol that is part of a winning combination forms a Reaction; they are removed from the reels and replaced by new symbols falling from above, potentially making more wins and continuing the chain reaction until no new wins are made.
On each spin or Reaction, a boat can appear on the second or fifth reels. After each Reaction, any boat above the second reel is removed, and the boat from the fifth reel moves one reel to the left. When winning symbols are removed from the reels, fish Bonus Prizes are shown and awarded for each boat.
Landing three or more Scatter symbols triggers the Free Spins mode with 10 spins for three Scatters and two additional spins for each additional Scatter symbol.
During the mode, boats will appear with increasing Multipliers and prizes are multiplied by the displayed boat Multipliers. Landing three or more Scatter symbols will award more spins.
In a statement to EuropeanGaming, BTG CEO Nik Robinson said: “We think you’re going to fall for Golden Catch hook, line, and sinker. With a delightfully engaging base game and an astounding feature, I think this one will be bigger than Bonanza.”
Samual Downer of Flutter Entertainment, added: “We are thrilled to be BTG’s exclusive launch partner for Golden Catch. Capturing the best of MegaWays and the ever-popular fishing theme, this game is sure to land with our players.”
