Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways Slot Review
Fishing may not be the most thrilling theme for a slot, but when it’s combined with the Megaways engine then that opinion swiftly changes. Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways is the latest addition to this increasingly popular genre of game. It’s launched across a number of casinos and brings the thrills of a Vegas Casino to the riverbank. Is this slot a real catch or is it one you’ll be happy to get away?
How To Play Fishin’ Frenzy
Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways is a 6 reel multi win line slot under license from Reel Time Gaming. A spin can generate up to 15,625 possible win lines! Set underwater, the reels host a number of fish related items such as rods, bait and rescue rings. Pelicans and fish can also be found alongside 10, J, Q, K and A symbols. A scatter boat symbol plus a fisherman wild completes the roster.
Wagering on the slot starts at just 10p. This can be increased up to a maximum of £10 by using the wager button that’s set to the left of the slot. Autoplay options are available and these are set by clicking the white arrow button at the bottom right. Autoplay allows the player to set the number of plays as well as limitations based on wins or losses.
Features & Bonus Round
The main feature of Fishin’ Frenzy is the Megaways engine. Each spin has a number of potential win lines based on the combinations of reels and lines. As mentioned above the slot has a real Vegas feel to it. Spins are accompanied by a simple soundtrack and thuds when the reels drop in. Things do get a little bit more lively however when the scatter feature is activated.
Get at least three boats to launch the scatter feature. This results in 10 to 50 free games depending on the number of scatters. During the free spins if the fisherman symbol appears then he catches any fish on the reels. Each fish has a cash tag and this represents the win amount. This bonus is paid in addition to any win lines on that particular spin.
Fishin’ Frenzy is an interesting slot that can take you to both Vegas and the riverbank in one spin. The game itself is simple but complex in equal amounts. The Megaways engine sometimes feels like a random number generator. However the game really does come into it’s own during the bonus round. During our trial play for this review we managed a win that was x80 the wager on a free 10 spin scatter round. That said wins are very infrequent and that doesn’t lend itself to maintaining interest. In many respects this slot does bring fishing to the casino – you can play for ages and not get a bite and then you’re close to a biggie. It’s worth a look but just be wary of poor fish stocks.
