How to Play
Playing Big Catch is easier than threading a worm to a hook. Just hit the start button, adjust your bets and start fishing for wins. The auto-play function is activated through just holding down the play button.
The betting options for Big Catch are adjustable at the bottom of the screen. The bets range from .02 to 5.00 per line, and with the game boasting 20 win lines, the maximum bet is 100 coins per bet. There’s also a gambling feature, should you feel like taking the risk to increase your wins. The pay-out table provides detailed information about the values of the symbols, which are as follows: The Pink starfish is the wild, and will substitute for any symbols. The Big Catch symbol, with the jumping fish, has the highest payout, with a value of 4,000 coins for 5 landed in a reel. It’s followed by the sea anchor, which is worth 1600 coins for 5, and 800 for 4. The numbers and letters decrease in value, but still offer some good wins. The ‘A’ symbol is worth 800 for 5, and the Q and K are both worth 480 for 5. The biggest jackpot is 80,000 coins, which is hit via a full screen of the Big Catch fish symbols, so there are plenty of opportunities to catch the big one in this game.
Theme and Special Functions
The theme of Big Catch is fishing, but is set down under with the fish themselves. The soundtrack attests to this with intermittent gurgling sounds. The design of the game itself seems to draw on recent films like Finding Dory… the fish are designed in a very similar way as are the rest of the characters. The background of the game is set, as mentioned, underwater. The light blue is offset by a beam of light from the surface and bubbles that gently float up. The reels are surround by brightly coloured coral and seaweed that sways with the current. The seaweed also shows up in the characters themselves; the number and letter symbols are designed to look like they’re made of coral, and have a bit of seaweed at their base.
Big Catch is a cartoon inspired game that is great for those who like the sounds and sensations of being underwater, all while looking for that Big Catch. Happy Fishing!
