Low value symbols in the game come in the form of the high end of a deck of cards, with 10 through to Ace. If the right amount of matching combinations land in one go then these symbols can offer between x0.5 and x3 the player’s stake.
Medium value symbols are represented by jerry cans and buoys, offering between x1.25 and x5 the player’s preferred bet.
Maps and scuba gear depict the highest-paying symbols for this title. These symbols can offer between x2 and x50, depending on the amount of paying combinations that land on a single spin.
Scatter-paying fish symbols can also land on the reels, paying out between x1 and x5 the player’s stake when three or more land anywhere on the reels at once.
Wild fishnet symbols are also available, substituting for all other symbols other than the fisherman scatters.
Finally, the fisherman scatters triggers a free spins feature if three or more land on the reels at once.
With the free spins feature, landing three, four or five scatters awards eight, 12 or 20 free games respectively. Each reel has a meter above it in this game mode, allowing each reel to have a level between one and three, depending on how many scatters have landed in that column during the free turns.
Scatters that land on the reels will increase these meters by a value of one, while awarding the player with an additional free spin.
As well as the standard fish symbols from the base game, green and red tinted fish can also drop into play in the free spins feature. The prizes that these fish give out will depend on what level the meter above their reels is on.
Depending on these meter levels, the green fish can award between x2 and x100 the player’s stake and the red fish can offer between x4 and x200.
Golden scatters can appear during this bonus game mode, causing the reel it lands on to send its meter straight to the max level of three, while awarding an extra free spin to the player.
Players have the option to buy three different levels of the free spins feature. To activate the bonus game mode with three guaranteed scatters and an RTP of 96.48 per cent, players can pay x70 their preferred stake.
To have the bonus feature with four scatters and an RTP of 97.02 per cent, players can pay x130 their stake. For a minimum of five scatters and an RTP of 96.07 per cent, players can pay x275.
WHAT THEY SAY
Kristian Hassall, Commercial Manager of Blue Guru Games, commented: “At Blue Guru, we believe in strong ideas and narratives and stunning audio-visuals. After releasing a game about space octopuses invading the planet, we wanted to come back down to Earth.
“One of the games team had always wanted to do a fishing game so, on the premise that nobody believes fisherman’s tales, we allowed a departure from our normal narrative-driven games”
