Big Bass Splash Overview
If it’s not broken, why fix it? That seems to be the case for more and more slot providers these days. We are seeing much more series of slots that use the same theme and just change the game a little bit.
So is the case with this new Pragmatic Play release, Big Bass Splash. Which, as you might have seen from the name, is another addition to their Big Bass series of games. Which already has titles like Big Bass Bonanza, Big Bass Bonanza Christmas edition, Bigger Bass Bonanza and Big Bass Bonanza Megaways.
These games all come with a fishing theme and all use the same bonus, where a wild symbol collects all money symbols on screen. With of course differences here and there.
Big Bass Splash uses 5 reels which are each 3 symbols high and comes with 10 paylines.
You will find normal card symbols and symbols like different fishing gear, a huge red truck, but also fish symbols, which can appear stacked on all reels. Wild symbols only appear during free spins feature. There are also scatter symbols an all reels.
Big Bass Splash has a maximum payout of 5.000 times your bet.
Big Bass Splash Features
When you land 2 scatters you might trigger a random bonus. Either a hook will come down and pull a third scatter onto the reels. Or the scatter symbols drop down one spot on the reels and the other reels respin to try and get another scatter.
Free Spins Feature
3, 4 and 5 scatter symbols will award 10, 15 and 20 free spins respectively.
Before free spins start you will get a screen where fish swim around and a hook will try to catch these fish. Each fish collected will add an extra modifier to your free spins. If you catch the boot the free spins will start.
These extra modifiers are:
- More Fish – More fish symbols are added to the reels during free spins
- More Fisherman – More wild symbols are added to the reels during free spins
- More Dynamite, Hooks and Bazookas – The chance to hit any of these symbols is increased
- Start from Level 2 – The free spins feature will start on level 2
- 2 more spins – You will get 2 more free spins. Applies to every level
Wild symbols now appear during free spins. When a wild symbol appears together with fish symbols, this wild will collect all values on all fish. More than one wilde and/or fish can appear during each spin.
The wild symbols are also collected in a meter on top. Each time you collect 4 of them you will trigger another 10 free spins with a bigger multiplier. Current rounds are finished before new free spins start. You start with a x1 multiplier and new levels will award x2, x3 and finally x10 multipliers. After this no extra free spins can be won.
During free spins when there are fish but no wild, or one or more wilds, but no fish. A dynamite or bazooka might appear and add the thing you miss.
Scatter symbols don’t appear during free spins.
Some casinos will offer the option to buy the free spins feature for 100 times your bet.
So the basics of this game is pretty much the same as all others. Getting that multilevel free spins bonus and collect fish symbols for some nice wins.
But this game does add three new features. First you have the option to buy the bonus, second you have the option to trigger that extra chance when you get just 2 scatter symbols. And third you have that fishing bonus before free spins start to collect one or more modifiers. Which does make this game a little more interesting, in my opinion.
They have also increased the maximum payout. This was only 2.100 times on the original and even only 4.000 times on the Megaways version.This one goes up to 5.000 times.
So overall they have improved the game. And I’m pretty happy with it. If I would play a Big Bass slot, I think this one has become my number one choice.
