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

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

High value symbols are represented by fishing rods and floats. If the correct amount of matching combinations land in a single spin, 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. 

Fish scatters are available on any reel, triggering the free spins feature if three or more land on the reels at once.

Finally, coin and diamond money symbols can appear, displaying monetary values that range from x1 to x2,000 the player’s stake that can be won in the Hold & Spinner game mode. This is triggered by landing three or more money symbols on the same spin. 


Each medium value fish symbol showcases a cash value that can be won during the free spins feature, ranging from x2 to x10,000. 

Landing three, four or five scatters awards 10, 15 or 20 free spins respectively. During these free spins, each fish symbol that lands on the same spin as a fisherman wild will have its prize value collected and paid out immediately. 

When players land fisherman 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 spins are awarded to the player, bringing a multiplier of x2, x3 or x10 depending on the number 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 to increase the spin’s win potential. 

In the Hold & Spinner game mode, players are given four spins on an empty reel set where only the triggering money symbols are available. 

Players will aim to land as many money symbols on the reels as possible, with each symbol that drops in resetting the number of spins to four. 

After all spins have been played out, the player will receive the accumulated value of all money symbols on the reels. 

Furthermore, players can buy access to either the free spins or Hold & Spinner game modes for the price of x100 their preferred stake.
