Big Bass Bonanza slot consists of five reels on which 10 bet lines are always active. The low-paying symbols are card values from 10 to Ace, while the higher-paying icons follow the fishing theme. Creating winning combinations is easy. You must land identical symbols on a payline across three or more reels starting from the left-hand side. The payout varies according to the type of symbol (low- or high-paying) and the length of a combination. In addition, there are bonus features in the form of bonus spins and a money collection feature. This, and many other online slots also allow the player to change the bet value before each spin. You can do this through the menu button at the bottom left or through the two small buttons on the sides of the main game button.
To activate the Big Bass Bonanza bonus spins feature, you must land three, four or five of the scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. This will trigger the bonus spins feature, and you will be awarded 10, 15 or 20 bonus spins respectively. The Fisherman Wild can appear at any time during the bonus spins, and these are collected in a metre at the top of the screen. Every time four Wilds are collected, the bonus spins feature is re-triggered, awarding an additional 10 spins. Players can re-trigger the bonus spins up to three times in total. During the bonus spins feature, the Fisherman Wild also collects the values of any money symbols that appear on the reels. When bonus spins are re-triggered, multipliers are added to the value of the money symbols collected.
The money symbol is depicted by a shoal of fish, and the cash prize value that they carry will vary at random. You can land this symbol both during the main game and during the bonus spins bonus round. However, during the bonus spins feature, the value of any money symbols landing can only be retrieved by also landing at least one of the Fisherman Wild symbols. If the bonus spins bonus is re-triggered, a 2x multiplier is added to the value of any money symbols collected. A second re-trigger awards a 3x multiplier, while a third re-trigger awards a massive 10x multiplier. If there are no fish in sight, the fisherman can activate the Dynamite feature by throwing a stick of dynamite onto the grid, adding money symbols and netting the fish symbols on the screen.
The Wild symbol is depicted by a fisherman who has just caught a gigantic fish. This cheerful character performs the dual function of being both a wild and a money collection symbol. When he appears during the base game, he acts as a classic wild symbol and can replace every symbol except the scatter. This helps you to create some impressive winning combinations. However, as already mentioned, during the Free Spin bonus game, the fisherman wild also functions as the money collection symbol. When you land wilds during a bonus game, you can collect all the prizes associated with the money symbols on the reels. The Wild symbol is also collected itself during the bonus inside a special metre located at the top of the screen.
