Big Bass: Keeping It Reel Review
After going stateside in Big Bass Splash, Pragmatic Play decided to bring the series back home with the fisherman returning to his rightful place in Big Bass: Keeping It Reel. Like most other slots in this series, Big Bass: Keeping It Reels plays on 5-reels with 10 paylines.
The aim of this game is to trigger the glorious free spins round leading to multipliers of up to x10. It's during this time that players can win up to 10,000x stake - which is the biggest win in the series!
According to the visuals, this Big Bass slot is set near arctic mountains and open water. The top of the screen showcases this as well as the animation of the water flowing. Next to the water, there is a fisherman holding up a fish and animating it.
On the bottom reels, you'll find all the little fish and different sealife creatures at the bottom of the ocean. Unfortunately, there is a cut from the top to the bottom that splits the water and feels like the developers just cut the bottom from the original Big Bass Bonanza. The top is designed with a different style so it feels a little jarring.
All of the symbols on the reels are familiar to players as they are all classic symbols from the game. Underneath the water, there is a cute little crab moving and fish swimming. It's just a shame that the top and bottom look so different and odd.
Thankfully the music more than makes up for it with a jaunty tune that plays throughout. It's upbeat with lighthearted instruments paired with the occasional ambient noise making the slot feel more grounded.
If you have played the previous games, then you'll be completely familiar with all the gameplay on offer. The main goal is to trigger the free spins with the multipliers and addition spins, but there are some modifiers that can trigger to help award wins.
At the bottom of the screen, players will find the spin button and bet level. Non-UK players will find a bonus buy option on the left side which buys an entry to the free spins round.
The Big Bass Bonanza series just keeps on getting bigger and better! Big Bass: Keeping It Reel adds in a decent RTP of 96.07% which is accompanied by a high volatility level leading to larger wins but less frequently.
To make matters even better, the game has a maximum win of up to 10,000x the stake. This can be achieved through the free spins round with the multipliers.
Big Bass: Keeping It Reel is easily one of the best Big Bass Bonanza slots and could even be one of the best fishing slots out there. The gameplay is mesmerising, especially with the free spins round.
Our only issue was the inconsistent design from the top and the bottom, but it wasn't too much of an issue throughout. With a big payout of up to 10,000x the stake, Big Bass: Keeping It Reel is unmissable.
