Where did the inspiration for Big Bass Secrets of the Golden Lake come from?
Everyone’s favourite fisherman is becoming more adventurous with each new release. Following Halloween and Christmas-themed titles, he recently swapped the river for the racetrack in Big Bass Day at the Races.

Returning to the water in a more medieval and mythological setting in Big Bass Secrets of the Golden Lake, he embarks on a legendary quest to retrieve something magical from the mysterious lake.
What features can fans get excited about in Big Bass Secrets of the Golden Lake? What sets it apart from other slots in the series?
The Big Bass series is full of variety, including so many themes and features. But each game has a signature look and feel, which is carried over to good effect in Big Bass Secrets of the Golden Lake. The familiar gameplay and popular mechanics will resonate with fans of the series, while the Camelot-esque theme introduces a fun and distinctive new style. Players can be excited about the two bonus games available, as along with the unique theme, this is what makes Big Bass Secrets of the Golden Lake stand out from other titles in the series. When three or more Scatters land on a spin in the base game, the bonus round is awarded with up to 20 free spins. But before the feature begins, the player is asked to choose one of 12 playing cards, the values of which are obviously not shown.

If a bonus card is revealed, the regular free spins round is triggered – and this experience is typical of other Big Bass Slots, with each fisherman wild that hits collecting the values of all money symbols on screen. If the player picks one of the two Secrets of the Golden Lake cards, however, the enchanted Golden Lake feature will activate. Here, only blanks, money symbols, and fisherman wilds can land, meaning a substantially bigger catch could be reeled in. This element of player choice, coupled with the medieval theme, make Big Bass Secrets of the Golden Lake a brilliant addition to the series.
Where does Big Bass Secrets of the Golden Lake rank among your favourite Big Bass slots?
It’s right up there. I thought Big Bass Day at the Races was a great game, as it exemplified the range and versatility of the series, showing that there’s still so much creative potential to explore. Big Bass Crash did exactly the same when it crossed over into an entirely new product category, and Big Bass Hold & Spinner Megaways set sail with a massive max multiplier of 20,000x - offering potentially enormous rewards from its combination of two popular game mechanics.

Big Bass Secrets of the Golden Lake adds another dimension to the Big Bass range, and it’s particularly exciting to have that chance to enter the Golden Lake feature from the bonus pick having already been awarded free spins. Either mode is fun to play.
