Pragmatic Play, a top online Casino slot supplier, has announced another fishing trip on its 2020 Big Bass Bonanza franchise. This was after the Malta-based company rolled out Big Bass Hold & Spinner Megaways. Amazingly, this is the tenth instalment to the top-trending franchise, with the developer once again calling on gamers to reel in on the big catch. It’s a follow-up to the Big Bass Hold & Spinner title released in March 2023.
Unlike the initial instalment with 5 fixed reels, this new Megaways title houses 6 dynamic reels with ever-changing symbols. The game also has 3 additional horizontal rows to help players unlock 147,456 winning ways. It features a high volatility rating with an above-average RTP (return to player) of 96.70%.
Players will find familiar symbols on the reels, like card icons, fishing rods, floaters, dragonflies, and more. You only need to match at least three of these fishing-themed symbols to receive a payout reaching 50x the stake.
The tenth instalment also includes the well-known Tumbling Reels mechanic. This function sees all victorious symbols on the reels replaced with new ones falling from the top after a spin. Of course, this could result in a flood of new winning symbols. Moreover, extra winning opportunities could arise if mystery symbols fall to disclose more matching symbols.
Pragmatic Play added the rewarding Free Spins mode as the tradition in initial Big Bass instalments. Players can activate the bonus game rounds by capturing at least three Scatters to win up to 25 bonus games. Note that this isn’t your usual Free Spins mode, as it has extra benefits. During this feature, the Fisherman symbols can come with a multiplier of 2x, 3x, and 10x. The multiplier keeps growing by 10x after the fourth free spin retrigger.
In the meantime, the Hold & Spinner feature could start when at least three Coin Money symbols appear, making a triumphant return on Big Bass Hold & Spinner Megaways. Players receive three respins when these Coins lock to the grid, and the value of each additional Coin is added to the overall win.
Big Bass Hold & Spinner Megaways is an excellent addition to the company’s longest-running game series that has been entertaining players for over three years. The game’s iconic fisherman protagonist features across the entire series, with everything making the most recent tile a milestone release for Pragmatic Play.
Commenting on the game, Irina Cornides, Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, stated: “It’s an honour to be able to introduce the tenth title in Pragmatic Play’s popular Big Bass franchise – and it’s an epic catch! Big Bass Hold & Spinner Megaways is the most thrilling game in the series to date. With an enhanced free spins round that introduces retriggers with multipliers for the first time, the gameplay is supercharged by the Hold & Spinner feature and the star power of Megaways to create plenty of opportunities for players to reel in big prizes.”
