Overview Of Golden Catch

You’ll fall for Big Time Gaming latest game Golden Catch™ hook, line and sinker!

As the Boats roll in, trigger reactions to reveal Fish Bonus Prizes that will be awarded for each Boat above the reels. Golden Boats multiply Fish Bonus Prizes by 10 and for a reely epic game trigger the Free Spins where Boat Multipliers are unlimited! Can’t wait for the fish to take the bait? Well, you’re off the hook! Use Win Exchange™ for extra chances at triggering the Free Spins! So lets cast a line and see what we can reel in!

Slot Description

Golden Catch has a 6 reel setup with up to 117,649 ways to win with the max reel setup and behind each winning reaction there are different fish waiting to be caught!

At any time one or more Boats may appear above the reels and drop anchor. As reactions occur and winning symbols are removed, one or more Fish Bonus Prizes will be shown. Fish Bonus Prizes will be awarded for each Boat above the reels. Golden Boats in the Base Game multiply Fish Bonus Prizes by 10 so you’ll receive schools of wins! The Fish Bonus Prize amounts are random, based on the number of visible symbols on the reel when it occurs:

·        Two or three symbols – Up to 500 times stake amount.

·        Four or five symbols – Up to 3 times stake amount.

·        Six or seven symbols – Up to stake amount.

Use Win Exchange™ to lure the Free Spins into sight! Whenever you win between 25 and 100 times stake, you have the option to exchange the entire win for the chance to be awarded 10 Free Spins. The chance of winning the gamble is shown in green on a wheel. 

Whenever you win 100 times stake or more, you have the option to exchange 100 times your stake for 10 Free Spins..

Reel in 3 or more Scatters in the Base Game to receive 10 Free Spins, plus 2 for each Scatter beyond the third. The first Boat in the Free Spins has a Boat Multiplier of x1, the second boat has a Boat Multiplier of x2, and so on. Fish Bonus Prizes are multiplied by all displayed Boat Multipliers for some reely big wins! There’s plenty more fish in the sea with 3 or more Scatters in the Free Spins awarding 4 additional Free Spins, plus 2 for each Scatter beyond the third!

Golden Catch Paytable

The paytable in Golden Catch is simple and tells you what each symbol pays in multiples of your stake! Starting with the low paying symbols we have the 9’s and 10’s both paying just 0.25x stake for a full way, the J’s and Q’s pay 0.4x and the K’s and A’s both pay 0.5x.

Moving on to the premium symbols we have the Green lure which pays 0.6x for a full way, the Blue lure pays slightly more at 0.8x, the Red lure pays 2x and in true Big Time Gaming fashion the Purple lure pays a more palatable 50x for a full way of 6.

While I played the big wins normally came not from max Megaways™ but rather minimum Megaways™ with the higher paying fish behind the reactions and especially when the golden 10x fishing boat dropped anchor with the above setup, some monster wins can definitely be achieved that way and I’ve already seen a few from different players.

Final Thoughts On Golden Catch

Golden Catch has an RTP of 96.53% and the maximum win is a very tasty 31,430x stake which just goes to show how games have changed from the old days, imagine winning £6,286 on a 20p bet!


To sum the game up I really enjoyed it, the bonus didn’t seem to be too hard to land and I like the exchange and gamble feature which didn’t feel half as hard to land as Extra Chilli yet this game has double the potential max win which makes it far more attractive to play.

The graphics and sounds were typical BTG and pleasant on the eyes and ears, while not in the league of NoLimit Cities intricate graphics and soundtracks it was just as enjoyable to play as some of there best titles. Would I play it again? Yes I would and yes I will be, keep an eye on the forum for big win which I’m sure I’ll get eventually as I’m going to grind this slot were I can!

Good luck and thanks for reading and remember, there’s always time for one more cast!
