Pragmatic Play intends to cash in on the run of fishing-themed slots we've seen recently with yet another Big Bass Bonanza production. Big Bass Splash slot is making its’ debut in the world of online slots in Q2 of 2022, and it looks like it could be a good option if you're into this sort of thing. On top of this, here at PartyCasino, we have exclusive access to the slot before any other casino – coming to us from June 1st to 23rd - so keep your eyes peeled for an early release.
Based on Bass fishing, the game has vibrant graphics and top prizes of 5,000x your stake. It's a volatile game with a decent payout, but that's to be expected given the theme. The top prize is strong, at 5,000x your stake, and while some online slot machines offer higher, the volatility makes the game that much more interesting. Big Bass Splash is played on five reels and three rows, with ten active paylines.
The theme itself is pretty fun, and we like the way that the game has been designed. Graphics are eye-catching and allow the game to stand out, with transparent reels behind which you can observe underwater life as fish glide gracefully past.
As far as symbols go, there are the standard royals, 10 through to A, as well as some more thematic symbols. These include a dragonfly, a bait box, a fishing rod, a truck and, of course, different size fish which form part of the bonus round as well.
The truck is the highest paying symbol, giving you 200 x your stake for five of a kind. This is followed by the fishing rod at 100 x your stake. Next, in order of value, there's the dragonfly, bait box, and two largest fish, which all pay 50 x your bet for five.
The smaller fish all give you 20 x for five, and card symbols pay either 5 x or 10 x your stake.
The two feature symbols are the Wild and the Scatter.
The Wild is a cheerful, bearded fisherman. If you manage to land him, he'll help you form wins by substituting for the necessary symbol to complete a combination on different paylines.
Meanwhile, the Scatter symbol is a hooked Bass leaping out of the water. This monster is the key to unlocking the free spins feature where you can win up to a whopping 5,000x your bet.
You can trigger the Big Bass Splash Free Spins by landing three or more Scatter symbols. Three, four, or five Scatters award 10, 15, or 20 free spins respectively.
During Free Spins, fish symbols become cash prizes, and the fisherman Wild symbol is added to the reels. Each time he appears, he'll collect any fish cash prizes on view. And each fisherman that lands during the bonus contributes to a progressive meter located above the reels.
This meter has four levels, and each time you fill it, you'll be awarded extra spins and win multipliers. The first level awards ten extra spins and a fish prize multiplier of x 2. The second level gives you ten extra spins and a fish prize multiplier of x 3. The third level gives you ten extra spins and a fish prize multiplier of x 5. Finally, the fourth level gives you ten extra spins and a fish prize multiplier of x 10. While the maximum payout is 5,000x your bet, this final stage is a surefire way to reel the big money in.
Big Bass Splash is an upcoming slot from Pragmatic Play with a fishing theme. Although the game doesn't have the biggest jackpot, it does have some fantastic bonuses which make it worth a try. The game is set to be released at the end of June 2022, but until then you'll be able to play it right here at PartyCasino exclusively from June 1st to 23rd. Until then, we’ve got loads of other slots and online casino games for you to check out, and don't forget to take advantage of our generous welcome offer and other promotions.
