Winning symbols range from lost hooks shaped in playing card values A-J, clams holding pearls, fishing kits, pelicans, and lifebuoys, to coral reefs and sea turtles.
Catching fish symbols via the hooks earns you an instant cash prize, but you have to land a winning combination to get the rewards for the others mentioned above.
For low-paying symbols, you must land at least three matching symbols on adjacent reels starting from reel 1 to cop a win; these are symbols such as the card values, the clam and the coral reef. However, high-paying symbols like the lifebuoy, turtle, fishing kit and pelican can award a payout for two across a payline.
All lost hooks are worth between 0.2x and 0.4x your bet except the Ace-shaped ones, which pay 0.4x to 0.8x your stake.
Clams and sea plants are worth as much as the Ace-shaped hooks, while lifebuoys hold a value between 0.25x and 2x your wager.
Landing 5 fishing kits or turtles can earn you up to 3x your bet. But for 5-of-a-kind of the pelican symbol, you get the highest value of 4x your stake.
If the Fishing Trawler Net symbol appears on the playing field, it'll collect all available fish values. After which, you get the total value multiplied by the sum of all available hook multipliers. However, this symbol only appears in the Free Spins bonus round.
Sometimes a hook will randomly drop down on the reels during the base game to snag one of the cash fish. If the hook lands on a row where there's a fish, it'll reel in the fish earning you its value. The values of the fish you may get are 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, and 10x your stake.
Free Spins Bonus Round
You progress to this bonus round if you land up to 3 scatter symbols on the reels. Note that scatter symbols can appear on any reel; each comes with a random number of Free Spins between 1 and 9. The combined values of the triggering scatters is the number of Free Spins you'll get. Of course, that is if you are successful in unlocking the feature.
A hook will drop down after every spin in this round. And if it catches a fish, it earns a multiplier of +1, which will continue to increase by +1 after every successful catch. The good thing is that there's no limit to the multipliers.
This feature will activate if you land a full stack of fish during the Free Spins feature. The activation will cause only fish symbols to appear on the reels for 3 consecutive spins. As a result, you may be able to increase the hook multipliers.
Big Bonus Hunt
You get this feature by choice. If you decide to play with this feature, you'll get a higher volatility slot, and it'll become more difficult to trigger Free Spins. However, you'll get a prize in return for the struggle if you can eventually unlock it. Here's how - each triggering symbol will earn you a guaranteed 9 Free Spins, the maximum one can get. That means you get
- 27 Free Spins if you land 3 scatter symbols;
- 36 Free Spins if you land 4 scatter symbols; and
- A whopping 45 Free Spins if you land 5 scatter symbols!
