The Wild Catch online slot game is a standard online slot game that has 5 reels and a boastful 243 ways to win. This stock standard online slot game is powered by Microgaming, and would probably not feature on their top 5 list.
Wild Catch has a fishing theme and the graphics and general game play are close to as simple as they can get. The simplicity of the game doesn’t affect the opportunity to win though, they have wilds, scatters and a jackpot that can reach a payout of up to 100 000 coins.
The Big Blue – Graphics and Sound Effects
Wild Catch online slot has a background setting of a fisherman’s boat out on the big blue ocean, with a couple of fishing rods hanging over the side. The most dominant colour across this game is blue, the background is quite prominently shaded with different colour blues, and the background of the reels are also set in a shade of blue, dark to be exact.
The symbols add a splash of colour with each symbol shaded in bright red, orange, green, yellow or purple.
The sound effects are average, but not memorable, and with every winning combination landed on a 2 second effect will play in the background to acknowledge the win.
A Fishermans Friend – Bonuses
Wilds and symbols can sometimes be considered as bonus symbols. The wild symbol is the swordfish, and if you get 3 swordfishes on your reels then it will activate 5 free spins. Within the free spin games any win that you get will be multiplied by 3 times. The wild symbol can also take the place of any other symbol on the reels in the hopes of forming a win. In this case, the wild symbol will reward you with an extra free spin.
The scatter symbol is the lifebuoy with a fisherman’s head sticking through. If you get 3, 4, or 5 lifebuoys on your reels you will be rewarded with 10, 15 or 20 additional free spins. If the scatter bonus is activated and the wild forms part of win then you will be rewarded with even more free spins.
Wild Catch Symbols and Game Play
Wild Catch is played in exactly the same way as most of the online blackjack games are played. With every spin of the reels we hope that a sequence of the same symbol displays across the reels in order to make a winning combination.
The symbols in Wild Catch include the standard poker-style symbols such as the 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace. The other theme-related symbols include a 1st prize trophy (I’m sure was awarded to the fisherman who caught the biggest fish), a fishing boat, a squid-shaped hook as well as a weighing scale.
To get started you’ll need to select your betting size and how many lines you would like to play on. As with most online casino games it’s said that the more you bet the more chances you have of winning.
The poker style symbols have the lowest payout schedule and the theme-related symbols payout more. The aim is to land with 3 or more of the same symbol to win. 5 scale symbols will award you with 2 000, 5 squid hooks will give you 3 000, 5 fishing boats will get you 4 000, and 5 of the 1st prize trophy will get you 5 000.
