Wild Catch Slot
Cast out your nets to catch a big stack of cash with this fishy themed slot machine from Microgaming. There are plenty of winnings swimming about in the sea thanks to the fact that this slot machine offers its players no less than 243 ways to win. Spinners can also enjoy special gameplay features such as wild symbols, scatter symbols and free spins. So, why not put down your fishing reel and tackle the 5 reels of this whopping slot machine?
243 ways to win
This slot machine is abundant with winning combinations… 243 to be exact. All that you need to do is line up at least 3 matching symbols on consecutive reels without worrying too much about any specific paylines. It doesn’t matter where the symbols fall on the reels, as long as they appear on on adjacent reels from left to right starting from the 1st reel.
There’s something fishy about this slot machine
Wild Catch offers up quite a unique theme which will naturally appeal to the inner-angler of every punter. If you haven’t found the fisherman within, then this game will surely help you discover the joys of reel spinning in more ways than one!
Aesthetically, the game is very pleasant to play thanks to a spread of colourful symbols and exciting sound effects. The slot machine is actually a relatively new addition to the Microgaming repertoire, meaning that players can expect to be treated to some advanced graphics and some seamlessly smooth action.
That said, more effort could have been made to add some animations to the reels. Alternatively, the game could have featured a distinct narrative element to compete with other video slots which take players on truly epic adventures.
How to get a bite
Every good fisherman knows that patience is the key to success. In many ways, the same mantra should apply to playing the slot machines. Because, let’s face it, you’re not going to land a big payout with every spin.
You might get a couple of nibbles though, thanks to the fact that there are so many different winning combinations available. But, before you get too excited, you will have to learn the ropes of Wild Catch…
It’s actually quite simple if truth be told; all you have to do is select the number of coins that you wish to wager and then determine the size of the each coin by toggling the (-) and (+) buttons. The total bet amount will be displayed in the top left hand corner of the screen. Think of this amount as your fishing bait – the bigger and juicier it is, the bigger the potential catch will be!
If you’re happy with the wager, then go ahead and press “Spin” to set the reels in motion. Or, you can use the autoplay feature to set off 5 or 10 continuous spins. That way you can sit back, relax, and wait for a nibble – just like you would if you were really fishing.
Catch of the day
The catch of the day at this slot machine is the wild symbol, which is depicted by a whopper of a swordfish. Not only does this symbol fill in the gaps for all of the game’s normal symbols, but it will also reward you with free spins. In fact, if players catch 3 of these symbols then they will be rewarded with 5 free spins, with all winnings multiplied by 3. Moreover, if you catch another wild swordfish during the free spins, then you’ll get yet another free spin.
The scatter symbol is depicted by a happy chappie with a life ring buoy and he might just send your winnings overboard. Not only is this the most valuable symbol in the game, but it will also trigger some free spins when 3 or more appear on the reels, as such:
- 3 scatters = 10 free spins
- 4 scatters = 15 free spins
- 5 scatters = 20 free spins
Wins which are completed by a wild symbol will be boosted by a multiplier. Starting at 1x, each wild win will cause the multiplier value to increase by 1x up to a total multiplier value of 10x. So, even if you only get a few wild wins during your free spins, you could still be in for some very handsome winnings.
Are you hooked?
Wild Catch is a very lucrative game which will surely attract fans of fishing, but it is also entertaining for players who are more accustomed to the slot reels than fishing reels. There are lots of free spins to be had and plenty of big winnings to be caught with the game’s 243 pay-ways. That should have any slot machine fanatic spun up into a frenzy, hook, line and sinker!
