Not many games go on to spawn a never-ending slots series, and our casino site has just come into another in the hugely successful Bass Bonanza franchise - Bigger Bass Bonanza! Volatile to the max, in this slot, you're looking at something that'll encourage the high rollers to go for it but also caters to iGamers looking to a conservative approach. No matter what category you fall into, there's a free spins feature that everyone has the chance to trigger, while a new symbol in the series brings you 4,000x your stake.
We’ve always thought the animations and overall look of the Bass Bonanza titles were quite attractive, going with a tropical sunset feel to really give you a craving for some sun-soaked R&R. Bigger Bass Bonanza keeps this going, so we’ll say thanks to iGaming studio Reel Kingdom for keeping the same look. The Reel Kingdom slots studio is a sub-studio of Pragmatic Play, and with Treasure Wild plus Yum Yum PowerWays being two games released last month under the same stable, it's safe to assume this company is on a hot streak. You’ll see that Bigger Bass Bonanza has four rows instead of the three rows in Big Bass Bonanza, while there are 12 paylines on which wins can land. The reels are volatile, so don't expect wins landing all the time, but rather good size win returns when they do land.
Another improvement on the last release is that the maximum win amount has been upped to 4,000x your bet. Even though this is an improvement, we’re still a tad underwhelmed due to rival slot machines in the UK offering much higher jackpots, with maximum stake limits that are kinder to the pocket. The max bet in Bigger Bass Bonanza is £240.00, which, as you'll be able to tell, encourages you to bet big for big wins. The lowest stake you can place is 10p, but this isn’t a place you’ll want to be spending much time as the wins playing this low won’t really be of any serious value.
Playing Bigger Bass Bonanza is sure to get you keen for a trip to sunnier shores, especially when the fisherman gets involved in the action. He can be seen as the wild symbol holding a catch. The wild substitutes all regular symbols to create winning lines, with the only icon it can't substitute is the scatter. Also, look out for fish symbols that fall with £ values attached.
The regular symbols start with the lower-paying, and these consist of playing cards 10, J, Q, K and A. The symbols that carry high values (and when we say high, they really are) are made up of a tackle box, a lure, a fishing rod and a fishing yacht.
There’s quite an enticing free spins feature in Bigger Bass Bonanza. To trigger it, you'll need to land 3, 4 or 5 scatters anywhere on the screen that will award you with 10, 15 or 20 free spins.
When wild symbols land on the same spin as the fish icons that carry cash values, the value displayed on the fish symbol will be collected. The wilds themselves are also collected, and every fourth wild that is collected sees the feature retriggered.
If you manage to retrigger the feature, a 2x multiplier comes into play for all wins, while a 3x multiplier occurs for a second retrigger and a 10x multiplier for a third and final retrigger. You can also catch a golden fish during the feature that has a value of 4,000x your bet.
Unless you’re a whale going for huge wagers and massive returns, you’ll definitely want to spend most of your time in the free spins feature. This is because once in, you have the chance to experience an endless supply of free spins that award more than just wins. There’s multipliers plus cash collections. Is this the casino game for you? You’ll have to cast out in order to find out.
