Bigger Bass Bonanza by Pragmatic

So what’s the best game fish to catch and eat? Well, it’s the big bass like the largemouth bass, according to some enthusiasts. Well, I can’t argue with them; game fishing is a sport in itself and requires the right tools and knowledge. The next best thing I can do with bass fishing is playing this Bigger Bass Bonanza slot by Pragmatic Play. Game fishing is the theme of this slot which offers players a refreshing way to spin for prizes.

In this review, I will take you on a fishing adventure but not necessarily to get wet. In this 5×4 slot machine with 12 pay lines, you will need the help of the Fisherman to stack more Fish symbols. There is also a Free Spins Round where the Angler can add Multipliers up to 10x with a chance to re-trigger the bonus up to three times!

Prizes and the game’s jackpots are just waiting for the lucky player. But before you start, join me in my complete review of this high volatility and fun slot machine.

Bigger Bass Bonanza What You Need to Know

As one of the titles under the Pragmatic Play portfolio, we can expect a premium blend of visuals, features, and jackpot. Let’s take a quick snapshot of the game:

PROS

  • High-paying symbols in the game can pay up to 200x your bet
  • You can collect up to 20 Free Spins during the game’s bonus
  • Fish Scatter pays up to 4,000x your bet
  • Wilds are collected on a meter which can add more spins and a Multiplier Wild of up to 10x

CONS

  • Highly volatile
  • Not highly original, shares some visuals elements with Fishing Frenzy
  • The cap on the payout is 4,000x your bet which is even lower than many Pragmatic Play that typically awards up to 5,000x the bet

Bigger Bass Bonanza- Theme and Background

This slot takes you on a fishing adventure for prizes and the game’s jackpot. If you have played Fishing Frenzy slot before, you will find its features and visuals somewhat familiar. The action takes place under the lake with the cityscape in the background.

One of the nice things I like about this game is its visuals and attention to detail. You have a 4×5 grid, and instead of lines that separate each section, you have bubbles appearing from the bottom. Cute. As I spin the reels, I also notice the use of 80s style music that adds more character to the slot experience.

As you swim for potential prizes, look for a line of Fish Scatters which awards the total value indicated. Big wins can also come by collecting a five-of-a-kind for Tackle Box, Fishing Rod, and the Boat!

Bigger Bass Bonanza- Gameplay

This game is actually based on Big Bass Bonanza, also from the same game designer. Nothing changed much in the gameplay except in the addition of an extra row. This is why you have the Bigger Bass Bonanza title, thanks to the addition of an extra row backed by 12 fixed paylines. So does this add to your win potential?

In my experience, this tweak provides you with more ground to work on and land a potential winning combo. Again, you need to collect at least three identical symbols. For bets, the designer also tweaked the betting options to match the number of paylines. In Bigger Bass Bonanza, players can start with 0.12 credits and increase this to 240.00.

Bigger Bass Bonanza- Free Spins feature

Just like many Pragmatic Play slots, Bigger Bass Bonanza is all about the Free Spins. Just follow the Fish Scatters, and when you land three, four, or five, you earn 10, 15, or 20 Free Spins. Aside from earning these extra chances, this bonus also rewards you with a few perks too as explained below:

  • When Wilds land together with the Money symbols during this round, the Angler then collects all values.
  • Wilds are collected and tracked using a meter just above the reels. For every fourth Wild, the bonus is re-triggered with 10 extra spins and a Multiplier. On the first re-trigger, you get 2x, on the second, 3x, and on the third (and last), 10x.

This game improves on the concept of the standard Free Spins round. Instead of Scatters that re-activate the round, you have the Wilds that also comes with a Multiplier of up to 10x!

Bigger Bass Bonanza- My Verdict

Yes, this game is bigger with the addition of an extra row. But when it comes to potential payouts and jackpots, well, it’s a different thing. A quick review of the game’s features reveals a familiar set of bonuses like Free Spins, Wild, and Multipliers. Fans of extra spins will love the reward of up to 20 spins with a chance to re-trigger.

But what I really like about this bonus is the role of the Wilds during the bonus. As you collect the Wilds, you increase your chances of re-triggering the bonus up to three times. But on other aspects, this game drowns in comparison to other titles. The theme isn’t exactly original, and I am disappointed with the game’s jackpot limit of up to 4,000x your bet.

Bigger Bass Bonanza is a visuall-refreshing; unfortunately, it fails to capitalize on its updated title that is bigger and more badass than its predecessor.
