Fishin' Frenzy review
Fishin' Frenzy is a true classic in the world of slots, this popular 5-reel, 10 payline animal-themed slot developed by Blueprint Gaming has been around since 2014 and can be played at all your favourite slot sites as well as on physical slot machines in bookmakers, pubs, bars and casinos around the world, similar to the Rainbow Riches series of games. We'll be honest, Fishin' Frenzy certainly isn't the flashiest or most impressive slot game we've ever played, but it's memorable and has captured the imagination of thousands of players enough to have seen multiple iterations and sequels.
Fishin' Frenzy is a strange old game, it really does look quite simple and at first glance it's easy to feel a little bit underwhelmed by it, but on the other hand, this game is so recognisable it's unreal. Practically anyone who considers themselves a fan of slot games would be able to tell you what a Fishin' Frenzy game looks like. You have to say that Blueprint Gaming has been successful in terms of design, even if this slot didn't blow our minds.
The five rectangular game reels sit in front of a bright blue ocean scene that's surprisingly free of any sort of marine life, which we'll be honest, is a bit odd. Perhaps everything was fished up in a frenzy?
Low paying symbols are your standard 10, J, Q, K, A and high paying symbols include a fishing tackle box, a lifebuoy, a fishing rod reel, a seagull and fish. The special symbols include a fishing trawler as the scatter and a fisherman as a special symbol that collect fishes for extra wins.
This slot plays just as you'd expect any standard Blueprint Gaming title to play. Players can access the game's paytable and change their stake on the left-hand side of the game reels, on the right-hand side of the reels players can set up to 100 automated spins and hit play.
This low/medium volatility slot is perfect for players that want slower-paced gameplay that will see them maintain their bankroll for a fair while. It has a pretty average RTP of 96.12% and a maximum win potential of 5,000x the player's stake, which is pretty average, however, at the original date of release, this was one of the better-paying slots.
Fishin' Frenzy is a cult classic, it isn't the best looking, feature-filled online slot out there, but we do have to give it the respect it deserves. If you're after an easy-to-understand online title that has a genuinely thrilling free spins bonus feature then you'll be more than happy with what Blueprint Gaming has to offer here.
