Wild Catch is a fisherman’s dream, a slot machine that takes you out in the middle of the ocean, and lets you try your skill and luck at some fishing. Microgaming has more than one fishing themed game, but this one’s action takes place on the ocean. There also seems to be some sort of competition going on, with trophies being shown among the symbols. You can rely on symbols with scatter or substitution abilities, and you can win free spins and big multipliers to apply to wins. Wild Catch uses 243 ways to win, and it will be capable of paying up to $7,500.
Betting and Prizes
The 243 ways to win are replaced with 30 pay lines, but only for betting purposes. You will have a minimum bet of $0.30, which places $0.01 on each of the 30 lines. The lines allowing for up to 10 coins of $0.50 to be used on them, the maximum wager will be worth $150, at $5 per line.
There is a maximum prize which is the equivalent of 50 times total bet, meaning that at most you can win $7,500 from the scatter. There is also a regular combo of up to $5,000 though, which could be increased up to $50,000 if the right multipliers come along during free spins.
Wild Catch Slot Features
I’d say look out for the Swordfish, if you’re interested in the wild feature. It will not be the kind of symbol that can pay you, and the reason for that is that it only appears on the middle three reels. Still, you can use it as a substitute for any other regular symbol, and you can also trigger 5 free spins with 2x multipliers when all three wilds are in view. Each Wild Win brings you one extra free spin here.
Another way to get free spins here is with the scatter’s help. This symbol shows you the Fisherman, and it appears anywhere on the reels, paying up to 50 times total bet when it does this, but also triggering other features. You can win 10 to 20 spins for free, in exchange for 3 to 5 visible scatters. The Wild Wins start at 1x, but with each new combo formed with their help, the multiplier will go up by 1x, and eventually it could even reach 10x.
Theme & Design
I didn’t find the design style of Wild Catch slot to be an attractive one. The idea is good, and there are a number of well chosen symbols, but the style in which everything is drawn doesn’t make it look modern enough. It’s more like something you would’ve played 10 years ago.
Wild Catch should work well if you’re a fan of fishing, and there are good features as well to be activated, with a bit of luck.
