Top 5 Fishing Slots at UK Online Casinos in 2023
Since the beginning of 2023, casino game providers have been on a fishing frenzy, churning out many fishing themed slot games. Fishing games all consist of an angler that reels in big fish for cash wins, and they tend to differ from each other by their bonus features. Fishingslots.co.uk, a dedicated slot review site for fishing themed slots, have been following the trend. Here are their Top 5 fishing slot games for 2023, so far.
- Big Bass Amazon Extreme
Pragmatic Play first launched their infamous Big Bass Bonanza slot back in December 2020. Before the game was launched, it appeared as a clone of another popular game Fishin’ Frenzy. However, it became a cult favourite among casino players. And since then, the Big Bass Bonanza slot series has risen to feature over 10 different game variations.
Big Bass Amazon Extreme is one of the latest additions to the series, released in June. It’s a 5×3 online slot game, with an action-packed bonus game, full of different bonus modifiers. With the notorious bonus trail, players can unlock bonus modifiers which can amplify winnings. Furthermore, players can unlock a win multiplier up to 50x their bet and the game has a max win of 10,000x. RTP for the game ranges from 94.05% – 96.07%.
- Big Catch Bass Fishing
Blueprint Gaming acquired the rights to Reel Time Gaming’s Fishin’ Frenzy trademark. Since then, they have been in constant competition with Pragmatic Play to see who can release the most fishing themed slot games. Blueprint’s Fishin’ Frenzy slots series spans over 15 games and counting. Furthermore, they even created some spin off games from the highly successful series.
Big Catch Bass Fishing was also released in June this year. It too is very similar to Big Bass Amazon Extreme. Featuring a unique bonus trail, players can use the Pick a Fish feature to unlock more bonus modifiers as they progress along the trail. Unlike the previous game, in Big Catch Bass Fishing you can unlock more bonus modifiers throughout the bonus game. Whereas, in Amazon Extreme you only get one chance to pick pots for modifiers before the start of the bonus game. The max win is smaller at 4,000x and the RTP ranges from 92.99% – 96.00%. Lastly, some versions of the game also have the Jackpot King Deluxe progressive jackpots.
- Fishin’ Pots of Gold – Gold Blitz
Gameburger Studios recently released their latest slot game in their fishing-themed games series Fishin Pots of Gold. Starting off originally, as a Global Games studios’ spin off of their popular game 9 Pots of Gold, Fishin Pots of Gold became very popular. Adding a fishing theme with Leprechauns and gold seemed to do the trick. Today, the Fishin Pots of Gold series spans 4 games, and probably more will be added in the future too.
Fishin’ Pots of Gold – Gold Blitz, basically took the orginal game and added Gold Blitz frees spins to it. This feature allows you guaranteed wins in the Cash Collect bonus round. The max win for the game is 5,000x and RTP is 96.25% which is quite high.
- Crabbin For Cash Extra Big Catch
Seeing the success and popularity of the Fishin’ Frenzy games, Blueprint Gaming decided to do a spin off with a crab fishing theme instead. In this game, fish are replaced with crabs, shrimps and lobsters, and crab cages are reeled in for big wins. Here too, there is a bonus trail in the bonus game which can unlock different bonus modifiers and big wins. An additional crabbing game just released, called Crabbin for Cash Extra Big Splash.
The game features a max win of 10,000x and an RTP of 92.5%. Moreover, the volatility is not that high, so wins do come by more frequently. Lastly, a progressive jackpot version is available too, which adds to the appeal of the game.
- 4 Fantastic Fish in Egypt
One interesting fishing-themed game comes from game studio 4ThePlayer. 4 Fantastic Fish in Egypt is a follow up to their original game 4 Fantastic Fish. This game takes on a friendly ancient Egyptian theme, transforming all fish into mummies. Unlike the other 5×3 slot games above, this game has 4,096 pay lines and also has a few bonus features. Volatility is high and the max win is 12,000x. RTP for the games varies between online casinos and ranges from 86.00% – 96.00%.
