In December 2020, Pragmatic Play partnered with Reel Kingdom to release one of the most played fishing-themed slots today, Big Bass Bonanza. Following the success of this title, the company has since released more than ten instalments, including a Megaways version.
On September 27, the Malta-based game provider announced that the fishing expedition had taken a whole new dimension after releasing Big Bass Crash. In this title, the provider transforms one of its top-performing slots into a crash game.
Bass Crash converts the already well-liked Big Bass slot into the trendy crash gaming format. The game maintains a familiar and well-liked theme, with the bearded fisherman and his boat taking centre stage as usual. However, the latest release comes with a new twist of making split-second decisions, as players cast their lines into the wagers, hoping to reel in huge wins.
The compelling action sees the main character’s fishing line extend into the ocean’s depths. Pragmatic Play says players must place a wager before each round begins and hope for a cashout before the fishing line breaks, ending the game.
In addition, the developer says the game houses the well-known 50% cashout option. This feature lets players keep half of their earnings in play and cash out the other half, allowing them to win even bigger payouts without losing their entire wins.
Big Bass Crash delivers a socially driven gaming experience. It achieves this by letting players engage in a live chat, explore thorough bet histories, and compete against one another on leaderboards. With its verifiably fair mechanics and comprehensive statistics, gamers can develop original winning tactics that increase retention rates for online casinos.
By fusing a concept that appeals to the company’s fans with the Crash genre, Big Bass Crash is a solid addition to the fast-expanding game library. In 2022, Pragmatic Play released Spaceman, one of the best-performing crash games in the iGaming scene.
Commenting on this release, Irina Cornides, Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, stated: “Big Bass Crash™ takes Pragmatic Play’s Big Bass franchise to a whole new level – this time with added excitement brought by Crash mechanics to offer Big Bass fans a unique new experience with our favourite fisherman.
“The returning 50% cashout feature in tandem with social elements encourage interactivity and enable players to personalise their experience in a way that suits their betting style. With speedy outcomes and a highly social atmosphere, we are very much looking forward to seeing players enjoy the latest title in our Crash game portfolio.”
