Graphics, Sounds, and Animations
iSoftBet has created a slot with larger than life reels giving both desktop and mobile players huge 3D symbols that literally pop out of the screen. The backdrop is made up of bright blue and white colours, ice floating in the water and clouds that whisk past above the reels. On the reels, bonus symbols bounce in position as the reels stop spinning, and there are miniature symbol animation displays triggered when a combination win connects. All this is backed up by an upbeat Christmas style theme tune and entertaining sound effects.
Top Casinos to Play the Game:
Fishin’ for Gold is a 5-reel and 25-pay line slot game. Each reel holds 3 symbols and you will need to spin in combination wins and land bonus scatters to trigger a payout.
You will have just 8 regular symbols to line up from left to right. The highest paying symbol is the smirking polar bear which will give you 1,000x, 200x, or 100x your ‘bet per line’ in return for 5, 4, or 3 symbols on a pay line respectively. Other symbols include the Penguin, bucket of fish and gold, old boot, A, K, Q, and J. Combination will only pay out when alike symbols land on the reels from left to right in the following order: 1-2-3 (3-symbol win), 1-2-3-4 (4-symbol win), or 1-2-3-4-5 (5-symbol win).
The value of each combination win is shown in the slot’s paytable. You can click on ‘BET’ to choose whether wins are shown in coins or cash. Either way, only 25 coins will bet per spin so 1 coin per line. Click on the ‘1’ icon to choose the cash value of each coin.
To control your gaming environment, you have the option of sound on/off and an autos spin option that comes with ‘loss limit’ and ‘stop if win reaches …’.
Bonuses and Free Spins
Fishin’ For Gold Bonus: When the golden fish lands on the middle 3 reels, the Fishin’ For Gold bonus game will trigger. You will be taken a screen with 4 characters all fishing in the ice for gold. The polar bear, penguin, and sealion look tight at home, but the 4th character looks cold and out of place as lions are not supposed to be in the artic ices!
Once you pick your character, you will start fishing for:
- Fish for free spins
- Symbols for extra wilds
- Wilds with multipliers
Free Spins: After the fishing bonus game has concluded, you will have caught the number of free spins awarded, symbols that will now count as wildcards, and wildcards with multipliers.
Extra Spins: Land the ‘Gone Fishin’ sign as once you have collected a total of 3 over the course of the free spins game, you will be awarded an additional 2 free spins.
Bonus Chance: When 2 bonus fish symbols land side by side, the bonus chance feature at the top of the reels will expand the green area. The bigger the green area on the meter, the higher the chances are of triggering the bonus game. You can stop the base game at any time and try your luck on the bonus chance meter which will give you free entry into the bonus game if you are successful.
Bet sizes, RTP and Variance
Betting is very easy on the Fishin’ For Gold video slot. Click on the ‘1’ icon to open the betting range. You can set your coin value between 0.01 and 1.00. As this slot is fixed to only allow 1 coin per line over 25 pay lines, the minimum bet is 0.25 and the maximum bet is 25.00 per spin. Your main objective to get your share of the slot’s 96.05% RTP is to hit the bonus round. The bonus game lasts quite some time with 2 stages to get through from which players will land their big wins. As a result, patience is the key which is reflected by the slot’s classification as a high variance game!
Fishin’ for Gold online slot is fun but only if you get to trigger the bonus game reasonably often. With 25 pay lines, there will be enough combination wins to keep you going but there is no wildcard in the base game making things a little harder than most other 25 pay line slots. However, if you hang in there, this slot is well worth playing thanks to its lucrative bonus + free spins game.
