Developer Pragmatic Play has announced the launch of a new slot in the Big Bass Bonanza franchise.
Titled Big Bass Bonanza Keeping It Reel, the game follows the titular fisherman as he embarks on another journey to catch fish and wins.
The game uses a 5×3 grid layout with 10 paylines, and it has an RTP of 96.07% with high volatility, so you’re more likely to make infrequent large wins.
Big Bass Bonanza Keeping It Reel requires a bet of between £0.10 and £250, and its symbols include fishing bobbers, fishing reels, dragonflies, fishing boxes, bass, and the usual A, K, Q, J, and 10 symbols. There are also Wild and Scatter symbols too.
The game is available at most mobile casinos, including PlayOJO, Videoslots, 44Aces, Playjango, and other brands.
Like all other titles from the Big Bass Bonanza series, the Big Bass Bonanza Keeping It Reel slot comes with several features, including Wild symbols that appear on all reels during the Free Spins mode and substitutes for all symbols except Scatters.
The bass symbol is a Money symbol. On each spin, the symbol takes a random monetary value that can be won during the Free Spins feature.
Speaking about the Free Spins mode, the feature is triggered by landing three or more Scatter symbols to trigger 10, 15 or 20 free spins. During the base game, when two Scatter symbols land without a third, there’s a chance for one to be added via a hook animation.
The Golden Wild symbol appears during the Free Spins mode. All Money symbols appear too, but they are not collected. Instead, they are stored in a net, and on each spin, a random fish with a random value will escape and its value subtracted.
The Golden Wild symbol collects the current value of the net whenever it lands. All Wild and Golden Wild symbols that land during the feature are collected, and every fourth Wild symbol collected retriggers the Free Spins mode.
When retriggered, 10 spins are awarded with a Multiplier for Money symbols. The Multiplier upgrades to 2xfor the second level, 3x for the third level, and 10x for the fourth level. After the fourth level, the feature cannot be retriggered.
Randomly, when fisherman symbols appear on the screen without fish at the end of a free spin, Money symbols can appear in random positions or a boat can appear and drag a net with Money symbols. Meanwhile, when Money symbols appear on the reel with no fisherman at the end of a free spin, a hook will add a fisherman to the screen.
Finally, you can purchase entry into the Free Spins mode for 100x your current bet. When you purchase entry into the feature, between three and five Scatter symbols appear to trigger up to 20 spins.
Irina Cornides, the Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, said in a statement: “Our favourite fisherman is back in yet another thrilling bonanza of big bites in the latest instalment of one of our most loved slot series.
“Big win potential and the trademark sense of fun that our Big Bass Bonanza games are renowned for are here in abundance, along with extra features and great multipliers.”
The launch of Big Bass Bonanza Keeping It Reel comes as Pragmatic Play continues to release new titles, including Candy Stars, Muertos Multiplier MegaWays, Firebird Spirit, Pirate Golden Age, John Hunter And The Book Of Tut, Aztec’s Blaze, and more.
