Catch a Big Fish!

If you’re a fan of fishing in the deep blue sea, then you’ll love Novomatic’s underwater fishing slot. Enjoy a serene 94% RTP and a bonus video game where you can fish for 7 different prizes and payouts of up to 20,000 coins.

Gameplay

Novomatic’s Big Catch slot game, not to be confused with THE Big Catch Novomatic slot, is a sweet game with bubbles in both the graphics and the audio and a lively Carribean rhythm when the reels are in spin. You’ll find the same type of tune on many of Novomatic slots, but in this case, it actually fits in with the theme.

Big Catch has 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 paylines, with an RTP of 94%. Most notably, it doesn’t have the standard Novomatic gamble feature, but it makes up for that with a super bonus video game feature. There are 7 base symbols where the Big Catch logo symbol has the highest payouts of up to 10 coins and the anchor is second highest with up to 4 coins. If you get all the reels covered in Big Catch symbols, it can pay out 200 coins.  The rest of the lower value base symbols are playing card symbols from 10, Jack, Queen, King and an Ace. The playing card symbols all like different coloured cartoon coral or sponge with bubbles and laced with reeds. Finally, the cartoony starfish represents the Wild symbol and only appears on reels 3-5

Special Features

The special feature in this game is a real doozy, especially for a Novomatic slot. Novomatic usually produce no-nonsense slot games, which really sets them out from the crowd. On this game, they worked a little extra magic and scored pretty well. Firstly, the bonus game is triggered entirely at random and features much more realistic imagery than the base game. It starts with all the reels filling up with water and then you choose a reel, click on it and reel in a fish from below the screen. There are 7 different fish you can catch with prizes ranging from .40 – 40 coins. You can also just keep on fishing as long as you’re reeling in fish. When you catch the old boot, that’s when the bonus game ends.

Verdict

Although Novomatic have put a little more effort into this game, it still doesn’t stand up to the competition. But you don’t mind the super low 94% RTP and the trade in of free spins for a realistic fishing video game, you’ll get along swimmingly on this slot.
