Boat Bonanza Overview
Play’n Go released a new slot game today called Boat Bonanza. And yes this is one of those games that uses a fishing theme and you will fish for cash rewards. Somehow these games always get the bonanza added to it. But maybe that’s just something I notice.
Like I said, Boat Bonanza comes with a fishing theme. Behind the reels we see a shoreline and the reels itself are set over the water, with two boats above them.
The game uses 5 reels that are each 3 symbols high and comes with 12 lines. I know a very strange number of lines, but that’s it.
You will find standard card symbols and all sorts of fishing gear. You will also find fish symbols with a cash value on them and scatter symbols. There are no wild symbols on this game.
Boat Bonanza comes with a maximum payout of 5.000 times bet.
Boat Bonanza Features
Fish symbols appear on all reels and will have a random value of up to 1.000 times bet.
Collecting these fish is done by the two boats that move around above the reels. These boats aren’t active when they are grey. And becomes colored when they are active. When fish symbols land on reels that have an active boat above them the boat will collect all values of the fish. When both boats are active on the same reel you will trigger the Mega Catch and all fish on all reels are collected.
Free Spins Feature
3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols will award 10, 15 and 20 free spins respectively. During the free spins both boats are always active. Now fish can award cash rewards, multipliers that are added to the boats and additional free spins.
When boats collect multipliers they will keep these until the end of the free spins and will multiply all fish they catch. If both boats appear above the same reel you still get a Mega Catch, but now the multipliers from both boats are added.
In addition to what I mention above, each time you catch fish, you are awarded with a free respin. During these respins only fish symbols with cash values appear. As long as boats keep collecting fish the respins will continue. If not, the normal free spins continue.
There are more games that use the same type of theme and the same type of bonuses. These are games from Pragmatic Play, like Big Bass Bonanza Megaways. But also Golden Catch Megaways by Big Time Gaming has some similarities.
Somehow these kind of games are popular. And I have to say, they are very enjoyable.
I like the theme, even though I have nothing with fishing. But especially the bonuses are fun. A bit basic during the base game, but during free spins a lot more interesting since the boats are always active. And can now give respins and multipliers.
Merkur, like for instance Like I started with, somehow these type of games get the name bonanza added. We see games like This is a game I really enjoy. First I really like the theme. It’s very colorful and it looks amazing.
I think it’s smart Play’n Go added a new slot game with this type of bonus. And they did a good job. Boat Bonanza is an enjoyable game.
