Overview Of Big Bass Bonanza

Big Bass Bonanza is the latest slot from Pragmatic Play and Reel Kingdom and it takes place deep under the sea with all types of fishing tools, from a complete fishing kit that brings a prize of up to 50x your stake to fishing bobbers that can award up to 200x your bet hitting the screen. The 5-reels and 3-rows online slot offers ten paylines, a 96.71% RTP and a Free Spins round that will help you fish around for big wins.

My initial thought’s are that the game looks like Gonzo’s Quest and Fishy Frenzy had an unplanned slot child! Let’s take a closer look…

Slot Description

Big Bass Bonanza is a 5 reel by 3 row slot with 10 fixed pay lines, the aim of the game is to land 3 or more scatters to open the free spin feature round which is very similar to Fishing Frenzy but with a neat way to re-trigger the spins and add a multiplier of up to 10x!

Once the free spin round is awarded you start with 10 free spins and every fisherman wild symbol that lands will collect the fish values as shown below. The fishermen are then collected at the top of the screen and for every 4th wild symbol you re-trigger another 10 spins and the multiplier increases. 

The first re-trigger will double the multiplier to 2x, the second will increase the multiplier to 3x and the third and final re-trigger will award the 10x multiplier with 10 free spins! 

Should the fisherman land with no fish at all a random dynamite feature can activate where up to 3 symbols are turned into fish and the values are collected.

Big Bass Bonanza Paytable

The paytable in Big Bass Bonanza is dynamic and changes with your stake which is how we like it, starting with the lower paying symbols we have the 10’s, J’s, Q’s, K’s and A’s all paying 10x your stake for a full line, do note that’s 100x a line in the feature with the max 10x multiplier.

Now moving on to the premium symbols we have the Green family of bass paying 20x for a full line, the Red tackle box and Blue dragonfly both pay a respectable 50x for a full line, the fishing rod pays 100x and the jackpot bobber pays a whopping 200x for a full line, yes that’s 2000x a line with the maximum multiplier, substantially better than fishing frenzy to say the least!

Final Thoughts On Big Bass Bonanza

Big Bass Bonanza has a fixed RTP of 96.60% and Pragmatic Play list it as high volatility with 4 lightning bolts out of 5, I would agree the game is high variance but still manages to give plenty of features to keep you entertained.

The max payout is capped at 2,100x which won’t be to everyones taste and should you reach this amount the feature will finish and any remaining spins will be forfeited which is a bit of a downer but in reality I think we would all take 2,100x our stake in a bonus with no complaints!

To round the review up it was fun to play, the features were mostly exciting and the fisherman seemed to show up a lot more than Frankie in Fishing Frenzy. The graphics and sounds were also very clear and crisp, overall I’m excited to see what Pragmatic have lined up for 2021 with Reel Kingdom, it seems an interesting partnership so far.

As always, thanks for reading and good luck if you’re having a punt.
