Golden Catch Megaways Overview
This new game from Big Time Gaming has been out a couple of weeks already, but wasn’t widely available. It is now, so time to dive in.
Golden Catch Megaways comes with a fishing theme, with standard card symbols, different colored fish and ships trying to catch those fish. On top of a background of a small fishing village and an undersea shipwreck.
The game has 6 reels that are between 2 and 7 symbols high during each spin. This will give between 64 and 117.649 Megaways per spin.
The game also comes with reactions. Meaning that winning combinations are removed and all remaining symbols fall down. New symbols than fall on top creating the option for another win.
You’ll also find scatter symbols, which are golden coins on all reels and wild symbols on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. This wild has the form of an anchor.
Golden Catch Megaways comes with a huge maximum payout of 31.430 times your bet.
Golden Catch Megaways Features
During any normal spin fishing boats might appear above reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.
When you get a winning combination, the removed symbols can reveal fish. These fish will have a cash value and will be collected if a boat is present above the reels.
There can be a normal x1 boat or a golden x10 boat, which will multiply the total value of the collected fish by x10.
Free Spins Feature
You can trigger the free spins feature four different ways.
- 3 scatter symbols will award 10 free spins and 2 extra free spins for every extra scatter symbol
- Win more than 100 times your bet and exchange that win for 10 free spins and an extra cash reward
- Win between 25 and 100 times your bet and spin a wheel to win either 10 free spins or lose your winnings
- Buy the free spins feature for 100 times your bet, this will award 10 free spins
During free spins boats will appear much more often. The first boat appearing will have a x1 multiplier and each boat after that will increase that multiplier by x1, with no limit.
3 or more scatter symbols during free spins will add 4 more free spins.
First let me start by saying Golden Catch Megaways looks amazing. The theme really pops and also matches the mechanisms. But then again all Big Time Gaming slots look amazing.
The base game is fine and can be fun when you have a boat on screen. But the main focus of this game is the free spins feature. Somehow Big Time Gaming managed to create a unique collection bonus with those boats. And this feature can be highly profitable.
It’s also great that you can trigger the bonus with more than just scatters. You can use the win exchange, which was also used on games like Gold Megaways and Wild Portals Megaways. And the option to buy the bonus instantly, like on one of their earlier games, White Rabbit Megaways.
Golden Catch Megaways is another smash hit by Big Time Gaming that I’m sure will be enjoyed for a long time. I would definitely try it out!
