There are a lot of parallels to be drawn between fishing and playing online slot games. Both require patience, perseverance and a little bit of luck to get the big prize that you want. It, therefore, makes sense for video slots to be angling themed. Indeed, this might have been the thinking of creators Blueprint Gaming when designing this classic game. Fishin Frenzy is played on a 5-reel, 3-row board with ten pay lines. To win players must match consecutive symbols across the reels in various combinations.
The big fun of this game is the fishing free spin feature, which grants you as many as 20 free spins. Wilds are also part of the game in a range of fishy symbols. Bets can be configured as low as 1p and as high as £10. The maximum win possible in this game is 2000x your stake. As with Blueprint’s other games, you can play either manually or configure the game to spin for you using the automatic spins feature.
Graphics and Theme
Blueprint have gone for a straightforward but well-executed theme. The board is submerged in water and flanked by two coral reefs, giving players the impression of diving in the briny depths. Symbols as expected take on the forms of various ocean-related iconography. These include pelicans, tackle boxes and fishing vessels. The creators have also made a special effort to give each of the normal symbols (a collection of numbers and letters) various piscine characteristics such as tails.
The music surprisingly is not a sea shanty but the nostalgia-inducing rolling slot music that one hears when in a pub or gambling casino. The bright colours, playful symbols and familiar music create an easy-going atmosphere, similar to what you get during a Sunday afternoon’s fishing. Wins are accompanied by a triumphant jingle and the symbols suddenly leaping into life as the pay line is diagrammed across the reels.
Fishin Frenzy keeps bonus features refreshingly simple. What players need to pay attention to chiefly is the fishing free spins feature. During the base game, players should look to find the Fisherman Wild symbol as this symbol has the ability to replace any symbol bar the scatter. It will maximise your wins on any spin it is active.
This video slot also comes with a free spins feature. Through this bonus is where the big fish prizes can be achieved. The free spins feature is triggered when 3,4 or 5 fishing boat scatters land on the same spin. This correlates to 10, 15 or 20 spins respectively.
Once the free spins feature has been triggered, all the bluefish symbols in the game will now land with a cash value attached to them. To reel in these cash prizes, you then need to land the Fisherman Wild. He will combine all of the blue fishes’ values for one big prize. You can win as much as 50 times your stake for each fish caught. Therefore, this is the place in the game to potentially win big.
Game How to Play
To start playing, you must first set the parameters of your bet per spin aligned with your budget to play. This is done using the control on the left-hand side of the screen, which allows players to increase or decrease their bet per spin. From the menu at the bottom of the screen players can then set the auto-pay settings including win and loss limits. Once this is set, the aim of the game is to match symbols to create wins. This is made more interesting with the triggering of the various bonus features.
