Inspired Entertainment offers players a wealth of fishing fun with the launch of its fishing-themed online and mobile slot game, Go Fish!.
Go Fish! is a 5×4, 1,024-payline video slot which incorporates a unique reel spin mechanic that sees three standard spinning reels in the centre surrounded by a wrap-around reel that moves right to left around the three standard reels, creating a set of 20 symbols in view.

Symbols in the game include four classic A-J royals offering £2.50 for five of a kind, followed by a seahorse and an array of fish offering between £2.50 and £3.75 for five of a kind. Lastly, the premium symbol is represented by the shark, offering up to £7.50 for a five of a kind win.
Additionally, players may also find mystery symbols on the reels represented by a question mark floating in a bubble. These may change into any regular pay symbol at random when in view.
The title incorporates features such as cascading wins, reel modifiers, a free spins bonus, multipliers and a Water Wheel bonus.
Starting with cascading wins, during the base game and the free spins mode, every winning symbol is part of a cascade. With this, winning symbols on the central reels are replaced by new symbols coming from above. Gaps created on the outer reel are filled through the bottom left position.
Moving onto the Whale Whirlpool reel modifier, during the base game reel spin there is the chance that a whale will swim behind the reels and may return onto the screen in front of the reels. If so, the tail of the whale will flip, creating a whirlpool which will produce a new reel combination. Any wins created will be paid as normal.
Meanwhile, the expanding wild puffer fish reel modifier sees the central reels contain puffer fish wild symbols. These will substitute for all symbols except the Go Fish! scatter. If a puffer fish symbol lands on the reels and no win results, there is a chance that they will expand to fill two-symbols-high by two-symbols-wide positions on the central reels.
If no win results from the expanded puffer fish, there is the chance that they will expand again. This will result in them completely filling the central reels. A win is guaranteed in this case and all winning combinations are paid.
Moreover, the free spins bonus is activated by landing three or more Go Fish! scatters anywhere in view during the base game, awarding eight initial spins. Additional scatters each award two extra spins up to a maximum of 42.
During the bonus, each winning cascade increases the unlimited multiplier by one. Winning symbol combination pays are multiplied by the current multiplier at the start of the cascade.
Featuring a free spins gamble, players can also gamble any free spins won for the chance to win even more. The ‘take’ button shows the amount being risked, while the ‘spin’ button shows the prize for winning the gamble.
The gamble wins if the arrow lands in a green area, and loses if it lands in a red area. The prizes for winning or losing the gamble are shown under the gamble wheel and also on a trail at the top of the screen.
The winning free spins prize can be risked again until the end of the trail is reached. A maximum of 25 free spins can be won from the gamble wheel. If the maximum is reached, the free spins are collected automatically.
Furthermore, during the free spins bonus, water wheel symbols replace the Go Fish! scatters on the reels. Landing three or more water wheel symbols in view awards the water wheel bonus. Here, the screen will transition to show a water wheel which will spin, slow and stop with one of several possible bonus enhancements pointed to and awarded.
