Pragmatic Play’s prolific fisherman has made another return to the reels in the studio’s latest addition to its angling series, Big Bass Bonanza Keeping It Reel


Out now




Big Bass Bonanza Keeping It Reel is a 5×3 reel, 10-payline slot with a maximum win of up to x10,000 the player’s stake. 




96.07 per cent


Low value symbols come in the form of the high end of a deck of cards, with 10 through to Ace. These symbols can offer between x0.2 and x10 the player’s bet, depending on the amount of winning combinations that land on a single spin.

Fish, tackle boxes and dragonflies depict the medium value symbols, offering between x1 and x50 the player’s preferred stake.

High value symbols are represented by fishing rods and floats. If the right amount of winning combinations land in one go then these symbols can offer between x3 and x200. 

Fisherman wilds can drop into play during the free spins feature, substituting for all symbols other than the fish scatter. 

Finally, a leaping fish scatter is available on any reel, triggering the free spins feature if three or more land on the reels at once.


Each medium value fish symbol showcases a cash value that can be won during the free spins feature. 

Landing three, four or five scatters awards 10, 15 or 20 free spins respectively. During these free spins, a fishing net appears at the top of the reels to accumulate all the values of fish symbols that land on the same spin as a standard fisherman wild for the duration of the free spins. 

This fishing net is not guaranteed to payout the accumulated cash values as players need to land a golden wild fisherman that collects this cash prize. With each free spin a random collected fish symbol will escape the net, subtracting its cash value. 

If players land standard wilds in the free spins, they are collected in a meter at the bottom of the reels. For every four wilds that are collected, an additional 10 free spins are awarded to the player, bringing a multiplier of x2, x3 or x10 depending on the amount of wilds collected. 

Randomly during the free spins, bonus features can provide wins where there is no payout potential. If there are no fish symbols on the reels but there is a fisherman present, fish money symbols can randomly appear in play with a special dynamite feature. 

Fish symbols can also be randomly added in this situation by a fishing boat driving across the screen and replacing standard symbols with cash value fish. 

On a random free spin, if there are no fisherman on the board but fish symbols are present, a hook will pull a random reel from beneath the reel set to reveal a fisherman that collects any fish cash values and places them in the accumulative net. 

In the base game, if two scatters land on the reels without a third triggering scatter, there is a random chance for another scatter to be placed on the reels to activate the bonus game mode. 

Players can trigger the enhanced bet feature, increasing their stake by 50 per cent in order to have a better chance of landing scatter symbols.

Furthermore, players can also buy the free spins bonus for the price of x100 their preferred stake.
