Heavy Bass Slot Overview for Halloween
Pragmatic Play and its partners at Reel Kingdom have re-imagined their popular fishing slot Big Bass Bonanza as Big Bass Halloween in the spirit of the spooky season. The thought of Victor Frankenstein on the topmost tower of a castle, slicing off parts of the original game while lightning crackled outside, and grafting on an oh-so-horror but actually not terrifying at all exterior, came to me. The end result is very funny and fits well with the tone of Reel Kingdom.
‘Something nasty this way swims!’ and a picture of a normally pleasant fisherman with a large, sharp hook set the tone for the game’s humorous introduction. This leads to the dark fantasy novel Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury, which was adapted into a film by Walt Disney. ‘By the pricking of my thumbs / Something terrible this way comes,’ one of the witches says to another as Macbeth approaches in Shakespeare’s Macbeth, suggesting that the term dates back much farther. Since it’s a Halloween-themed game, everything is darker than in Big Bass Bonanza. The waterways are a murky grey, and the sky is gloomy, too.
The standard return to player (RTP) has decreased from the original game but is still rather high at 96.06%. Whether a player is wagering 10 pence per spin up to £/€240 per spin, or spending 100 times their initial bet on the free spins feature, this total remains the same. The ante bet may also be activated, which raises the stake by 50% and gives you an additional chance of hitting scatters. Big Bass Halloween is a 5-reel, 3-row gaming matrix featuring 10 paylines and a medium-high volatility rating.
Big Bass Halloween also uses symbols to convey the spirit of the season. The lowest-paying icons are the royals from 10 to A that have been stitched over, while the higher-paying icons include fish, a tackle box, a crow, a hook, and a life ring. The payout for a straight flush is 20 times the stake, and for a full house it’s 200 times the wager. The wild symbol, seen above as a fisherman with a hook, may replace any other symbol except the scatter. Free spins are the only time wilds appear on the reels.
Slot Machines With a Big Bass This Halloween
Big Bass Halloween Land’s fish icons provide random monetary prizes that may be collected during free games. Fish have odds ranging from 2 to 2,000 times the wager. Free games are awarded for landing 3, 4, or 5 scatters during the main game. When a fisherman symbol appears during free spins, he will gather the values shown on any nearby fish icons.
When a fisherman sign is hit, it is also gathered. You may get an additional ten free spins for every four wild symbols you collect. Fish money symbols have a multiplier of x2 during the base game, x3 during the second retrigger, and x10 during the third retrigger. When the current round of free spins expires, a new round will begin, and the multiplier will carry over. The feature can no longer be retriggered after the third time.
Finally, at the conclusion of a free spin, fish money symbols may appear at random spots for collecting if there is just one wild sign in visible on the screen.
The Big Bass Case for All Hallows’ Eve
In fact, you know what? The Big Bass Halloween party was more fun than anyone had anticipated. The initial reaction was something along the lines of, “Oh fudge this, another fish slot, another one, and it’s a reskin too, a Halloween one…” The downward spiral of sorrow and mental suffering continued until it reached rock bottom. Big Bass Halloween was a jovial little reskin of a classic fishing slot with a Halloween theme, but as is frequently the case, neither the lows nor the highs lived up to expectations. There are a few delightfully in-theme moments in the slot, such as the fisherman who has taken off his happy face to reveal his inner maniac and the stitched-up zombie card royals.
It’s old news at this point what Big Bass Halloween can provide in terms of a bustling gaming area. If you’re not used to this type of gameplay, the regular game might be tedious because it lacks any additional features, but the free spins bonus round is just as fun as ever. The practice of collecting images of fish on currency notes is one that shows no signs of dying off. Big Bass Halloween has lots of it, and it seems to be continuing strong as ever. When a multiplier of up to x10 is factored in, collecting fisherman symbols may pay off in a big way. Big Bass Halloween, like the original, has a win maximum of just 2,100 times the amount wagered, so it’s not exactly big game fishing.
Do we need to do this? Kinda. A replica fisherman zipping about, was it really necessary? No. Despite this, Big Bass Halloween is a somewhat entertaining fishing slot with a mildly entertaining Halloween slant, and it is glad to trick-or-treat players who are interested in trawling through a game presenting this specific combination of themes.
