Fishin’ frenzy is a simple, but popular video slot by Reel Time Gaming
They sold the licence to Merkur and Blueprint Gaming, who subsequently also had success with Fishin’ Frenzy.
Central in this video slot is a sports angler, who tries to catch extra mystery prizes with his fishing pole.
And so now there is also a Megaways version of Fishin’ Frenzy on the market. It is mainly more of the same but cast into a Megaways mold.
Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways gameplay and features
For a Megaways slot, the number of ways to win is quite modest in Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways: up to 15,625 Megaways.
Besides that, everything is tried and true: 6 reels and a different number of rows of symbols per reel with every spin.
Betting starts as low as $€ 0.10 and goes up to $€ 10, per spin.
It is possible to buy in directly to the bonus round, and that will put you back 100 x the total bet.
The level of payout rate depends on which game you play. If you play Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways the regular way (without buying the bonus), the RTP is 96.10%. But if you make use of the bonus buy option, it shoots up to 96.60%. That is quite a significant difference.
The variance in Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways is high but not as high as in most other Megaways. The maximum payout you can win is 10,000 x the total bet.
Symbols and payouts
Remarkable is that there are no wilds in the game.
The highest paying symbol is the pelican, which is worth a maximum of 200 x the total bet, with 6-of-the-same.
The premium symbols (a fly fish rod, a lifesaver and a tackle box) are worth between 50 x and 100 x the total bet with 6 identical ones.
The card symbols 10, J, Q, K, and A will get you between 2.5 x and 5 x the total bet.
And there are also two kinds of scatters: the fishing boats have to activate the free spins, and the big blue fish are worth money prizes.
Free spin bonus:
You need a minimum of 3 scattered fishing boats to win the free spin bonus. Depending on the number of scatters, you earn anywhere from the minimum 10 to a maximum of 50 free spins.
During the free spins, the fishermen play an essential role. Every time they appear on the screen, all the blue fish change into mystery prizes. They are worth at a minimum 2 x the bet, up to a maximum of 50 x the stake.
If you spin multiple fishermen, you will also win multiple mystery prizes.
Our verdict on the Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways video slot
Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways is a bit of a meek slot and certainly not one of the best Megaways slots out there.
It just sort of babbles along, and that is also true for the free spin bonus, and usually, that is the part of a game that has the fireworks.
Nowhere do you get the feeling that a big payout is lurking just below the surface, ready to pop up.
What do you get? Lots of small prizes, perhaps a few medium-sized ones.
2.5 out of 5 stars.
