Big Bass Bonanza Megaways Slot Review

You’re invited to cast your fishing line in search of a bigger catch in Pragmatic Play‘s Big Bass Bonanza Megaways, a 6 reels, and up to46,656 ways to win slot. The 4,000x jackpot slot features wilds, tumbles, free spins, and money symbols.

Big Bass Bonanza Megaways is the fourth edition in the popular series of Big Bass Bonanza slots but the first to use the Megaways mechanic. The artwork preserves the novelty of the original 5×3 (reels x rows) and 10 pay lines slot. Once again, a fishing float is a top-paying symbol, only this time rewarding up to 50x bet on a 6 symbol-strong win line. It is also the only symbol that awards a payout, just 2 symbols long. Other upper-paying symbols include a fishing reel, dragonfly, tackle box, and school of bass, followed by the smaller catch of 5 royals. The happy-go-lucky music of the original makes its return.

The RTP of Big Bass Bonanza Megaways is slightly above average (96.70%), accommodating stakes of 0.20-100. You may also want to check out Juicy Fruits or Madame Destiny Megaways from Pragmatic Play.

A symbol of a fishing net represents the game’s wild. It’s a great catch (pun intended) when it lands anywhere on the top horizontal reel. Of course, the slot uses the MegawaysTM mechanic, where the number of symbols randomly ranges (2-6) on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5, plus the horizontal reel. The numbers of symbols on reels 1 and 5 also vary from 2 to 5. The greater the number of symbols, the higher the ways to win.

After a winning combination, participating symbols disappear, giving rise to a tumble of symbols to replace them. Tumbles continue at no cost, provided that new win lines are created.

The slot also has a special money symbol, with a random value, illustrated as a school of fish. Individual fish symbols may take on random values, as they too act as money symbols. Fish symbols explode and tumble normally in the main game. However, they do not explode during free spins, instead falling to the bottom.

Players will also be pleased to know about the free spins feature activated by special scatter symbols as follows:

  • 3 scatters: 10 free spins
  • 4 scatters: 15 free spins
  • 5 scatters: 20 free spins
  • 6 scatters: 25 free spins

A fisherman symbol can hit during free spins, collecting all visible money symbols. For every 4 fishermen that land, 10 free spins are re-triggered and a multiplier for money symbols increases:

  • 1x on the first re-trigger
  • 3x on the second re-trigger
  • 10x for the third re-trigger

If 1-2 fishermen land on a spin with no money symbols, the game may add money symbols or transform symbols in the playing area.

Big Bass Bonanza Megaways bitcoin slot is smartphone, tablet and desktop optimized, so it goes just about anywhere you do.
