Big Bass – Hold & Spinner Megaways Overview
Earlier this year Pragmatic Play released a game called Big Bass – Hold & Spinner. Now almost 6 months later they are releasing the same title again, but now with the Megaways mechanism attached. Simply the same name with Megaways added.
I stopped counting how many of these Big Bass games they have released by now. I am guessing it’s almost 10 already. They really love releasing these titles.
You will find 6 reels that are between 2 and 6 symbols high during each spin. And on top of reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 you will find 3 rows of symbols, which close and open at random during each spin. You can get a maximum of 147.456 megaways per spin.
As with all these games, the theme revolves around a guy fishing. You will find all the same symbols as usual. Standard card symbols, fishing gear and fish. There are now also wild symbols, which can appear on the top rows of symbols. And of course scatter symbols on all normal reels. This version also comes with mystery symbols. All these symbols change into one and the same symbol.
Big Bass – Hold & Spinner Megaways comes with a solid maximum payout of 20.000 times your bet and is a high volatile slot game.
Big Bass – Hold & Spinner Megaways Features
All winning combinations are removed from the reels and remaining symbols fall down. New symbols fall on top, creating the option for another win. This keeps happening until no new winning combinations appear.
Free Spins Feature
3, 4, 5 and 6 scatter symbols will award 10, 15, 20 and 25 free spins respectively.
All fish symbols have a random cash value on them. And the fisherman is a new symbol during free spins. When one or more wild symbols land and a fisherman is also present, he will collect all values from these fish.
The fisherman symbols appearing are also collected on meter on the right of 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 x10. After this, each new retrigger will increase the multiplier by x10, so from x10, to x20, to x30 and so on. With no limit. The extra free spins will be played after the first set of free spins are finished.
Besides all this you can also randomly trigger fish when no fish appear, but a fisherman is present.
Hold & Spinner Feature
Special coin and diamond symbols can land during the base game with a random value of between 1x and 2.000x bet. When you get 3 or more coins or diamonds at the same time you will trigger the Hold & Spinner feature.
You are awarded with 3 respins and only coins, diamonds or blank spots can appear. The triggering symbols will stay on the reels. Each new coin and/or diamonds appearing will collect all values from all symbols, even the ones that triggered the bonus.
The feature ends when you run out of respins.
Some casinos offer the option to buy the Free Spins Feature for 100 times bet and the Hold & Spinner Feature for 120 times your bet.
Talk about milking a title dry. Pragmatic Play has released so many of these Big Bass slots, it’s starting to get ridiculous. I’m sorry, I know the games are pretty popular, but enough already, come with something new. Please!
That being said, Big Bass – Hold & Spinner Megaways is now a bad game. In fact they have added everything they ever tries with these titles and added it to this title. Megaways, the familiar free spins feature, a Hold & Respin feature, random added symbols. Everything!
And it also comes with a nice maximum payout of 20.000 times bet.
Overall it’s nothing we haven’t seen before and it’s the same old theme again. But it does work.
