Everyone’s favourite fisherman is back for another instalment with the Big Bass Hold and Spinner slot from Pragmatic Play. Head into the water for yet another chance to win big cash prizes with up to a potential x10,000 waiting to be netted.
The Big Bass series of slots has proven to be a popular franchise from Pragmatic, adding to the rich choice of fishing-themed slots available in the market. Slots from other studios, such as Fishin’ Frenzy has helped to drive up the appetite for this niche, giving Pragmatic a big hit. Some of the other titles in this series have included Bigger Bass Bonanza, Big Bass Splash, and Big Bass Bonanza Megaways.
The action for this slot takes place on a 5x3 board that includes 10 traditional paylines. Unlike some of the other fishing titles, the betting range for this slot is vast, starting with a min bet of 0.10 and increasing up to a maximum of 250.00. Volatility is high, so you can expect to be waiting around in your waders for quite some time before the big catches start to appear.
Part of the excitement of checking out a new slot is discovering new visuals and graphics. As this slot is the latest in a long series of similar titles, you won’t find anything particularly innovative about the design. The reels are submerged beneath the surface, surrounded above by pond plants and reeds, and underwater, there’s a glimpse at the aquatic world.
The low pays are the playing card royals, with no obvious embellishment or decoration. The bubbles between each reel are a nice touch, providing both decoration and function. The high pays include a tack box, reels, floats, dragonflies, and fish displaying a monetary value.
There is no wild that lands during the base game, so you’re on your own when it comes to making a winning line.
Although this slot may appear to be pretty basic, there are a few nice little extras that are lurking in the water.
The first is the free spins round which is triggered when you land three or more scatter symbols. During free spins, a wild symbol may land to help you make more winning lines. However, the wild also collects all of the fish symbols that land simultaneously, awarding you the value they display.
You will also collect the wilds too, and depending on how many you accumulate, you will also be awarded an increasing multiplier. The maximum amount you could win is x10, plus you’ll also receive ten more free spins.
If wilds are on the board but no fish symbols, they may be added randomly by a special bazooka feature.
The Hold & Spinner feature is one of the main bonuses, and it’s triggered by landing three or more money or diamond symbols. The triggering symbols remain in position and you'll have four more respins. Only money symbols and blanks can land; if you land a money symbol the respins will reset. In this Hold & Spinner game, new money symbols are not sticky.
The Big Bass Hold and Spinner slot from Pragmatic Play makes a great addition to the series with a new feature that players will love.
