Fishin’ Frenzy Christmas Slot Overview

Fishin’ Frenzy Christmas sees those good folks at Blueprint Gaming put a festive spin on their most famous series (and one of the most well-loved in the slot-o-sphere). That’s right! It’s time for those cute little fishies to dig out their Santa hats, the Pelican to don his scarf, and our favourite slots angler to bedeck his boat in baubles. Christmas is coming, and the prize collection mayhem is sailing into a town near you. If, by chance, you aren’t yet familiar with this smash hit series, you can expect a cartoonish reel experience and one of the most sizzling Bonus Trail/Prize Collection Free Spins Bonuses in the business. Keen to get into the Yuletide spirit, the developer has even thrown in a net-busting Festive Fishing feature – you lucky devils! Reel in a winning haul in this one, and you may be unwrapping a 50,000x max win!

Whether it’s our age or simply too much time spent reeling in cartoon fish, Blueprint Gaming’s flagship series always scores immediate nostalgia points in our book. We love settling into the signature surroundings which, aided by the soothing soundtrack, create a pleasantly relaxing vibe. The game itself is, of course, as great as ever. Many have tried, but few have succeeded in bettering the stellar bonus round, and we loved the added balance to the base game resulting from the Festive Fishing Feature. At 95% RTP, we can never give out top marks, and there isn’t all that much on offer that we haven't seen before, but this old fisherman loved it nonetheless.

Fishin’ Frenzy Christmas Slot Features

Festive Fishing

All Fish Symbols that land leap into an increasingly bulging net above the grid. That net’s getting so full... surely it’s going to burst! Indeed it does, sending Fish flying left, right, and centre and handing you, the lucky player, a Pick a Fish Bonus. Select one of three Fish to win one of the following:

  • Free Spins: 10, 15, or 20 Free Spins
  • Cash Collect: Collects the Prize tag values of all Fish in view
  • Cash Streak: Triggers a Fish Streak Spin, potentially adding more Fish to the reels, which are then collected and added to your balance
  • Extra Fish: Adds extra Fish symbols to the reels to guarantee one or more Fish Symbol line wins

Boat Scatters are the key to the Free Spins Bonus:

  • 3x Scatters = 10 free spins
  • 4x Scatters = 15 free spins
  • 5x Scatters = 20 free spins

Free Spins sees the introduction of Fishermen Symbols, which act as Wilds and collect the values of all Cash Tag Prizes in view. Cash Tag Prizes range from 2x -50x. Hooray for the Fishermen!

Before the round begins, you will be presented with a whole shoal of Fish to choose from. You may select only one, but your new scaley chum will hand you one of the following Bonus Round Boosts.

  • Tackle Box Tags: Adds Cash Prize Tags to all Tackle Box symbols
  • Life Ring Tags: Adds Cash Prize Tags to all Life Ring symbols
  • Fishing Rod Tags: Adds Cash Prize Tags to all Fishing Rod symbols
  • Pelican Tags: Adds Cash Prize Tags to all Pelican symbols
  • +Fish: Adds More Fish to the reels
  • +Fishermen: Add more Fishermen to the reels
  • +Collect: Adds Golden Fisherman to the reels. These awesome anglers will collect all cash prizes in view…repeatedly
  • Re-Spins: Whenever a Fisherman and one or more Cash Tag Symbols land together, they lock in place, whilst all other positions re-spin. This process repeats for every new Cash Tag symbol or Fisherman that spins into view, increasing your chances of a rewarding collect win.
  • +Games: Awards additional free spins

Once the round begins, all Fishermen symbols are added to a Trail above the reels, with a bonus awarded for every second Fisherman:

  • Two Fishermen: Pick A Fish Modifier Boost
  • Four Fishermen: 10 additional spins, with a x2 multiplier applied to all Cash Tag Collect wins
  • Six Fishermen: Pick A Fish Modifier Boost
  • Eight Fishermen: 10 additional spins, with a x3 Multiplier applied to all Cash Tag Collect wins
  • 10 Fishermen: Pick A Fish Modifier Boost
  • 12 Fishermen: 10 additional spins, with an x10 multiplier applied to all Cash Tag Collect wins

Our Verdict The Prize Collect Bonus Trail round is a classic for a reason, and few games do it better than Fishin’ Frenzy. Beginning in relatively calm waters, the excitement and big win potential move through the gears as you add Modifiers and Cash Collect Multipliers to the mix.

Fishin’ Frenzy Christmas Slot RTP & Volatility


Variable RTP




Medium - High

The top-end 95% Return to Player (RTP) percentage is a percentage point below the industry average RTP of 96%.

Sitting on the cusp of the medium/high volatility threshold, the festive-flavoured Fishin’ Frenzy is broadly on par with most of the previous releases in the series. As ever, the game is heavily weighted towards the bonus round, meaning you will need to endure a fair share of dead spins and low-paying wins.

Our Verdict The lower-than-average RTP is the one big drawback of this mega-series and is again in evidence. You should be aware that an alternative, lower setting of 93% is also available. Always consult the information section of the game to ensure you are getting the best deal. The theme of this game always feels light, whilst the bonus-heavy gameplay and excellent win potential are more associated with a high volatility release. As such, the medium/high setting feels about right.

Fishin’ Frenzy Christmas Slot Graphics & Audio


By now, Blueprint Gaming knows not to mess too much with a winning formula and has continued with the familiar colour scheme and symbols. Various shades of blue dominate the palette, although, this time, the lake looks decidedly chilly – lending a seasonal-icy twist to the classic setting. The game symbols remain simple yet satisfying, with the high-pay animations adding a welcome dynamic element to the visual experience.

Where things are a little different from the norm is in the soundtrack. No sign of calypso beats or twangling guitars here. Instead, twinkling xylophones, bells, swooning strings, and trumpets combine to create a classic Christmas ditty. However, it is a case of as you were with the reel effects, which electronically escalate, thud, and clank just as they always have.

Our Verdict No big surprises from the production team. Yes, the Fish have cute little hats on, and the Pelicans dig out their scarves for the occasion, but barring the frosty aesthetic, this is simply Fishin’ Frenzy plunged through a Christmas filter.
