Fishin Frenzy

Summary

Reel in the catch of the day with Fishin’ Frenzy, an original online slot game from the creatives at Reel Time Gaming.  The theme is beautifully presented with underwater reels and little tails on lower-value playing card symbols showing the effort that has gone into the game.  The five-reel, 10 pay-line configuration is fairly traditional, but then again, fishing is a traditional pastime.  Although Fishin’ Frenzy isn’t bursting at the gills with features, the free spins feature is well worth reeling in. 

About the Developer

Reel Time Gaming were founded in Taringa, Australia back in 2009 and have been providing top-flight slot games to online casinos and land-based terminals since then.  The company has always focussed on producing quality rather than quantity but have still amassed a portfolio of more than 100 games spanning a dizzying variety of themes.  If you haven’t already had the fortune of playing a slot from Reel Time Gaming then give one of these a spin:  Knockout Wins, The Diamond Game, Pyramids or Dragon’s Flame - among many others.     

About the Game

To some, fishing is a lifestyle choice, to others it’s the sporting equivalent of counting sheep.  Whatever your position, you can’t help but notice how calming Fishin’ Frenzy is, from the blue reels suspended underwater, to the cute tails and flipper shaped playing card symbols - not to mention the grinning fish.  Meanwhile, premium symbols are inspired by the hobby itself:  a green tackle box, a fishing boat, a life ring and a cheeky heron with a fish in its mouth.

The scatter symbol is an old fish boat heading into the sunse while the fisherman symbol is wild, in the sense that he substitutes for all other symbols bar the scatter. 

Free Spins

Spin three or more fishing boat scatters and head out across the waves for up to 20 free spins depending on the number of scatters in view:

  • Three scatter boats = 10 free spins
  • Four scatter boats = 15 free spins
  • Five scatter boats = 20 free spins

Reel Time Gaming have showcased their creativity here by giving the fisherman symbol a dual role.  As well as being wild, he will also reel in nearby fish symbols whenever he’s in view during the bonus.  The only downside of the Free Spins bonus is that it cannot be retriggered during bonus play.

The Verdict

If you like the idea of going fishing without having to sit in the rain for six hours at a time then Fishin’ Frenzy from Reel Time Gaming might be the slot for you.  The submerged reels, cute artistic touches and friendly fish make the relatively slow gameplay enjoyable and relaxing at the same time.  It would be a good idea not to relax too much though as the RTP on this online beauty is 96.12%.  Not only that but the jackpot is a whale of a prize at 2000x your stake.
