Pragmatic Play – Big Bass – Keeping it Reel – Free Slot Game

Reel Kingdom’s Big Bass Bonanza series has been a tremendous success story so far, and they’ll probably keep churning out new installments until the proverbial cows come home. However, in Big Bass Bonanza: Keeping it Reel you’ll have left redneck country behind, since this installment is closer to the first game than some of the recent releases.

Brand new is the fish prize pot that accumulates prizes in the bonus round, and these are won when you land the golden wild fish prize collector. The multiplier upgrade path is the same as always, and you also get a couple of randomly triggered fishing wild collector and fish prize modifiers during the feature. The 10,000x potential is the highest we’ve seen so far in this series, which alone should make this an interesting prospect for fishing slot fans.

Bonus Features on Big Bass Bonanza: Keeping it Reel Slot

The premium symbols pay out between 20 and 200 times your bet, and you only get wilds and golden wilds in the bonus round. As usual, Wilds substitute for payout symbols to help you complete wins, and we’ll get to the other functions they perform below.

You need 3, 4 or 5 scatters on the same spin of the base game to trigger the bonus round, and that will give you 10, 15 or 20 free spins. In some cases where you only land 2 scatters, a third scatter can be hooked on the screen at random times to trigger the feature.

You must land the Wild and/or Golden Wild symbol to get the cash fish prizes, but any existing fish prizes without Wilds will be added to the prize grid at the top left. On each subsequent spin, a random fish escapes this net, causing the corresponding prize to be subtracted from the total pot.

When the golden wild collects the fish prizes, it also collects the current prize net pot. Both the wild and the golden wild are collected in the multiplier path below the grid. Every 4 wild and/or golden wild symbols collected will bring +10 additional spins and the fish prize multiplier will increase to x2, x3 and finally x10. The feature cannot be retriggered once the x10 multiplier is reached.

There are also a few randomly triggered features in the bonus round. If you land wild collect symbols without any fish prizes present, a dynamite can be hurled on the screen to turn payout symbols into fish prize symbols. The opposite can also happen if you get random collector wilds when there are fish prizes to collect.

You can choose to play with ante bet activated, and this will cost you 50% more per spin. The benefit is extra scatters added to the reel strips, which increases your bonus round chances. Players outside the UK and all eligible people can buy the bonus round for 100 times the bet. None of the above affects the RTP, and the bonus round hit rate averages 1 in 117 spins.

The 200 Spins Big Bass Bonanza: Keeping it Reel Slot Experience

In the base game, you’ll see a regular line win with fish symbols before we trigger the bonus round just before the 1 minute mark. We have at least 3 triggering scatters, and the feature will play for the remainder of the 3-minute highlight video. See for yourself by clicking the play button below.

Rating Conclusion

The Big Bass Bonanza series has already taken some interesting turns deep into redneck country, so we’re guessing that the “Keep it real” part alludes to Big Bass Bonanza: Keeping it Reel returning to the game’s humble roots. However, the 10,000-fold potential isn’t too modest, since it far surpasses all the previous episodes.

The prize pot concept is the other element that distinguishes this release, but it can be a bit frustrating to see it emptied all the time when fish escape. The random elements have been done better before, and visually the game looks a bit odd with the fisherman cheering you on from behind the underwater display. Overall, a decent sequel that was worth it for its great potential.
