9 Bass Review
Who doesn't love a good old-fashioned fishing slot? How about one with a fixed jackpot and a free spin wheel? Then you've come to the right slot with 9 Bass.
Developed by Oros Gaming with Microgaming, this fishing slot plays on 5-reels with 20 paylines throughout. Lucky fishermen will unlock wins of up to 2,000x the stake through the fixed jackpots or the free spins round.
In the background of 9 Bass, there is a static image of a lake with the mountain in the distance and the water in front of the reels. On the reels, players will find multiple different fish and bait on the reels fishing in well with the theme.
Sadly, there are no animations throughout and the design does look a little tacky compared to other fishing slots. However, the music is quite catchy and upbeat delivering something more exciting for players.
There are two main goals in this slot. Firstly, players must try to trigger the free spins round and the wheel. The second is the goal to land up to 9 basses for the fixed jackpots. Nothing is too complicated and it's incredibly easy to pick up.
The right side of the screen contains the spin and bet level button, whilst the left side has the paytable and other settings. Players wanting to adjust the sound or gameplay should click here.
With dreadful visuals, we were hopeful that the win potential would be something exciting but sadly that is not the case. This medium volatility slot has a maximum win of 2,000x the stake which is just under the expected average.
Unless players are betting a lot of money, huge wins will not come from this slot. It would've been a hundred per cent more exciting if the maximum win was at least 10,000x the stake or even something just under that.
Thankfully, the RTP for this slot is better than the maximum win at 96.24% which is over the average standard but does not compensate for the low maximum win.
9 Bass is certainly nothing special but that does not mean that it's a poor slot either. The free spins wheel and the Epic Strike are great features that certainly deliver amazing gameplay.
The main issues with this slot are the design and the win potential. Of course, the design can be overlooked if the win potential is incredible - but that's not the case with 9 Bass. This slot is worth a spin for the free spin wheel and fixed jackpots but do not expect this to be your new favourite slot.
