The Big Bass Bonanza by Pragmatic Play takes you on a very enjoyable fishing trip. Try to catch as many fish as possible in the form of winnings in the online casino.

Somehow we've got a proliferation of those online fishing machines. Just recently we played Bass Boss od Red Tiger and today we have its direct competitor, also a successful fish catcher - Big Bass Bonanza. This online slot is made by Pragmatic Play, and although we're not fishermen, we're happy to play anything that smells fishy... err, has an original theme. So let's see if the Big Bass Bonanza catch is fish for the winning frying pan.

The Game’s visuals

We don't have a lot of experience with Pragmatic Play games yet, so we went a bit into the unknown. The Big Bass Bonanza slot machine was prepared for Pragmatic by Reel Kingdom studio and they pride themselves on pleasant cartoon graphics. And that's exactly what the Big Bass Bonanza is. Its cheerful, colorful visuals are tastefully underlined by the music and overall sounds. The authors nicely tied the online slot with fishing and we liked it all. It's not anything spectacular, but it's good to watch and the time passes very pleasantly.

Basic game properties

The Big Bass Bonanza is a five-reel slot. Each reel features three symbols and there are ten winning lines in total. It's not much, but it's fun. In addition, there are some forms of compensation. The most obvious one is definitely that we have a symbol that pays out in just 2 appearances on the playing field. This symbol is the float. However, the other symbols work according to the traditional scheme, so you need to spin them on the playing field at least three times to win.

The controls of Big Bass Bonanza are very simple, but you can see that it's tailored for mobile play. All the important elements are on the right side, even in the desktop version. So you basically have all the controls at your fingertips. You choose the amount you wish to bet on the next game round using the plus and minus arrows. You even have several options to spread your bet. You are then allowed to choose how you want to play. Whether you control the individual spins, which is more time-consuming, or choose Autoplay. It will play everything for you. We really liked that you can set up to 2 game speeds in addition to the number of spins. We took advantage of this because we found the reel speed too slow.

You can also select the bet amount in the menu. It also offers players additional settings. Battery saving, for example, also clearly shows where the gaming industry is increasingly moving.

Bonus features of the slot machine

Fortunately, there are plenty of bonuses in the Big Bass Bonanza online slot. We were just a little disappointed that they are all tied to freespiny. In a basic game, there is basically no bonus. That is, except that you can get out of it via Scatter symbols into free spins.

For example, the Wild symbol is the fisherman, but you won't see it in the basic game. It will only show after the free spins are triggered. It retains its traditional joker function, so it substitutes for missing symbols on winning lines. But besides that it also fishes.

This is related to the second special bonus, which is the fish symbols. While these can form a winning combination on their own, they can do more in free spins. Each fish also has a certain amount below it in the picture. You get this amount if the fisherman is shown at the end of the spin along with the fish.

But there is more to the Freespins. To get into them, you need to land at least three Scatter symbols. For 3 Scatters you get 10 freespins, for 4 you get 15 free spins and for 5 Scatters you get 20 free spins. We have already mentioned a few bonuses that work during freespins. But there is one more.

While playing for free, a progress bar is displayed above the game screen. You collect the fisherman symbols in it. Every single fisherman symbol that remains on the playing field after the game spin is completed gets added to this table. Every fourth fisherman symbol added will then award 10 extra freespins and add a multiplier. The first four fishermen award an x2 multiplier, the next four award x3 and the last four fishermen add tenfold to your winnings + free spins of course.

Big Bass Bonanza slot machine review

The Big Bass Bonanza is probably not for everyone but it won't just be fishing fans who like it. It has a chance to appeal to anyone. It looks good, the gameplay is fine and the bonuses drop quite often. You can try out the game completely for free. Familiarize yourself with the Big Bass Bonanza at the Betsafe Online Casino and grab something big, in the form of a cool win of course.
