Developer and game provider Pragmatic Play has launched Christmas Big Bass Bonanza.
The brand new slot is a Christmas take on Big Bass Bonanza, a classic video slot from Pragmatic Play. The game takes the game’s original fishy theme and merges it with Christmas, seeing Santa Claus take the place of the original angler.
Christmas Big Bass Bonanza uses a 5×3 layout with 10 paylines, and an RTP of 96.71% with high variance, which means you’re more likely to make infrequent large wins over regular small ones.
To play, you’ll need to bet between £0.10 and £250 per spin, and symbols in the slot include Christmas baubles, fishing rods, sleighs, fishing boxes, fish, bass, Santa Claus himself, and the traditional A, K, Q, J, and 10 symbols too.
Like most other Pragmatic Play casino games, Christmas Big Bass Bonanza comes with several special features. For example, Santa Claus acts as the Wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter.
Meanwhile, landing three or more Scatter symbols trigger the Free Spins mode; three Scatter symbols trigger 10 free spins, four Scatter symbols trigger 15 free spins, and five Scatter symbols trigger 20 free spins. During the Free Spins mode, each Wild also collects the values from Money symbols, and all Wild symbols that land is collected until the end of the round.
Every fourth Wild symbol that is collected retriggers the Free Spins mode, adding 10 more spins and increasing the multiplier for Money symbols to 2x, then 3x, and a maximum of 10x. After a third retrigger, the Free Spins mode can no longer be retriggered.
Meanwhile, there are Money symbols in the base game and Free Spins mode. With every spin, the Money symbol and Fish Money symbols take a random value that can be won later. Finally, the game’s Free Spins mode can be bought for 100x your bet.
Julian Jarvis, the Chief Executive Officer at Pragmatic Play, said in a statement: “With Christmas and the holidays just around the corner, we thought our players deserved to experience a festive take on one of our most popular games collections.
“Breathing new life into a series that has become a staple of our offering has been a truly invigorating experience, and we look forward to seeing how our audiences respond to this festive instalment.”
