Fishin Frenzy Prize Lines Slot Review
Game developers continue to look for new ways to enhance their already successful titles. Mechanics such as Megaways, Megaclusters, Must Drop Jackpots and Slingo have given extra life to many different slots. Blueprint Gaming are hoping for similar success with their new game
Fishin Frenzy Prize Lines. This new development that brings together bingo and slots aims to broaden the audience and increase interest in Blueprint’s titles. But haven’t we seen a bingo meets slots game before?
How To Play Fishin Frenzy Prize Lines
Fishin’ Frenzy is a popular slot title from Blueprint that has already spawned Jackpot King, Megaways and Power 4 Slots versions. However Fishin Frenzy Prize Lines doesn’t look like a slot game. It’s played on a 5×5 grid and the aim of the game is to create winning lines. The more lines you get the higher up the paytable you go. If you’ve played Slingo before then you’ll know the format. In this game you set your wager (10p to £10) and then click spin. Squares on the 5×5 grid will then either stay blank or fill with fish. Fish are required to make winning prize lines.
Hold Over Symbols
On each game you get five spins and as the Prize Lines mechanic makes use of the popular ‘Hold Over’ symbols feature any fish remain in their squares. During the game you might also get a fisherman who can award extra fish. To win on Prize Lines you need to accumulate a minimum of five winning lines although this only gets you your stake back. Six lines is a x2 win whilst seven lines rewards you with a x5 win. Get 8, 9, 10 or 12 lines and you enter the Frenzy Spins rounds.
Frenzy Spins are played on the same 5×5 grid but this time any fish on view are worth a cash prize. This means that you have 25 chances to win on every spin. The total of the fish at the end of the spin represents your reward. To help you achieve more prize lines the mechanic has a ‘wager on’ element. This means that after your first five spins you’ll be invited to pay for an extra spin. The amount varies from game to game and there’s no limit to the number of respins you can wager on with.
Comparisons To Slingo
Fishin Frenzy Prize Lines is a mechanic which fans of Slingo will instantly recognise. It has a 5×5 grid, paytables and wager on features – the aim of both games is to complete as many lines of the grid as possible. There are differences such as Prize Lines not offering any kind of strategic decision making – i.e. you don’t get to pick any squares. Base game spins on Prize Lines are limited to five plus there are no free spins. Slingo mainly relies on numbers whereas Fishin Frenzy fills up an empty grid with fish.
The Spin On Fishin Frenzy Prize Lines
When we played Fishin Frenzy Prize Lines we found that wins were quite hard to come by. Creating just five lines from five spins just to get your wager back is a tall order. Getting beyond the five lines and even harder one. For the most part we felt that the aim of the game was to get us to wager on – which didn’t ever prove to be a fruitful exercise. The Frenzy Spins round – if you ever get there – does seem to quite good in terms of creating good wins but we’d need to see it more times to verify. Overall it’s a fun game to play and an intriguing alternative to the multitude of Slingo titles.
