Big Bass Bonanza – Keeping it Reel Overview
I know this new game from Pragmatic Play is called Keeping it Reel, but maybe a better name was Keeping it Going. Because by now this is already the fifth or sixth release on this series of games.
They all use the same theme and variations on the same features and bonuses. But all with a small difference. Beside a standard version they also released a Megaways version, a Christmas version and a Splash version with more added bonuses.
And now it’s time for a version with a much bigger maximum payout and a fun extra bonus.
The game uses 5 reels which are each 3 symbols high and comes with 10 paylines. And as all the others uses a fishing theme, with standard card symbols and all sorts of fishing gear. And fish symbol that can appear stacked on all reels. These are regular symbols during the base game and become special symbols during free spins.
Wild symbols only appear during the free spins feature, scatter symbols can appear on all reels.
Big Bass Bonanza – Keeping it Reel comes with a maximum payout of 10.000 times your bet. Double the other titles.
Big Bass Bonanza – Keeping it Reel Features
Free Spins Feature
3, 4 and 5 scatter symbols will award 10, 15 and 20 free spins respectively. If you get 2 scatters, there is a random chance a third one will be added to the reels to trigger the free spins.
During free spins wild symbols now also appear. These can be regular or golden wild symbols.
Fish symbols have a cash value on them. When one or more wild symbols land they will collect all values from these fish.
When fish symbols land, but no wild symbol is on screen, the values of these fish will be added to a net on top of the reels. Each following spin, this value will decrease, unless more fish are added. When a gold wild symbol lands it will not only collect all values on the fish, but also the total value of the net.
All wild symbols appearing are also collected on a trail below the reels. Each time you collected 4 of them you will trigger 10 extra free spins with a higher multiplier. This will start at x1 and will go up to x2, x3 and finally x10. After the final level you can’t win more free spins. The extra free spins will be played after the first set of free spins.
Besides all this you can also randomly trigger fish when no fish appear, but a wild does. Or a random wild when no wild appeared and fish does.
For 50% extra bet extra scatter symbols are present on the reels.
Some casinos will offer the option to buy the free spins feature for 100 times your bet.
This is another game in the same series of games. And all these games feel very similar, but are a little different from one another. And the games are very popular, that’s why we see so much sequels.
This version isn’t very different from the original. But does come with a maximum payout that’s twice as high as the regular game. So that’s something fans would love. And also comes with those fun golden wild symbols, which can instantly award some huge prizes.
I think they managed to still keep this series interesting without changing too much of the core game. I am wondering how long they will go on, so we will see.
