Club Tropicana Review
If you have ever wondered what the fisherman from Big Bass Bonanza does in his spare time, then Club Tropicana is the slot for you. This luxury slot follows 'Mr Fisherman' as he runs a bar called Club Tropicana.
All you need to enter this club is a membership and a smiling face! There's enough fun and sunshine in this upbeat slot with free spins leading the charge. If you love lighthearted Pragmatic Play slots, then this one's for you.
We were a little disappointed not to hear Wham's 'Club Tropicana' song but we're guessing that Pragmatic Play did not get the rights. Instead, there is a knock-off upbeat track in the background that's decent enough.
As for the visuals, 'Mr Fisherman' stands to the left of the reels with a floral shirt that definitely shows too much hair. He is accompanied by shades, rings and a surfer bracelet showing just how relaxed he can be when he's not catching fish.
Most of the visuals are related to a tropical environment with cocktails, fruit and inflatables that you'd expect to find on the beach. One interesting thing to note is that whilst there aren't any fishing symbols, a hook can appear randomly to add a scatter during the base game showcasing the true roots of this slot.
It's safe to say that if you've played one Big Bass Bonanza slot, then you'll know what you are in for with this slot. The base game doesn't do anything too special as the star of the slot is easily the bonus round.
Landing 3 or more scatters triggers the free spins round leading to up to 20 free spins. Wilds are collected throughout this bonus round and 4 of them will improve the multiplier and reset the spins to 10. It's nothing too crazy but has proven to be entertaining time and time again.
Whilst we know this is not directly a Big Bass Bonanza sequel, it's still within the same universe and follows the game closely. Therefore, we were hoping that this slot would improve upon the statistics from the previous games.
Sadly, that is not the case. Instead, you'll find an RTP of 96.08% which is decent enough but not as high as the Big Bass Bonanza slots. Club Tropicana also contains a high volatility level leading to larger wins but less frequent. This is commonly found in most Big Bass Bonanza slots so we're not surprised to see it here.
The maximum win is nothing too special in this slot but that's not to say that it's terrible either. At 4,000x the stake, you'll be able to see decent wins throughout but nothing as big as Big Bass: Keeping It Reel.
Club Tropicana is a charming slot that will manage to scratch an itch for you if you are looking for an easy-to-play slot with clear inspirations from Big Bass Bonanza.
However, this will not be a slot for everyone. If you are looking for complicated mechanics and big wins, we recommend trying out Rock Vegas. However, if you want a simple slot about a man running a bar in a tropical climate, then Club Tropicana should be your next destination.
