Gold Fish Feeding Time Review
When people think of fishing slots, they immediately think of a lone fisherman searching for the biggest catch. Light & Wonder had other ideas with Gold Fish Feeding Time as this slot focuses on adorable little goldfish just waiting for their daily feed.
Playing on 5-reels with 50 paylines, Gold Fish Feeding Time takes players to the bottom of the ocean to find the cutest fish in hopes of triggering one of the seven special bonus rounds as well as the mighty fixed jackpots. Looking for a fishing slot with a little less bite, then Gold Fish Feeding Time may be the one for you.
Set at the bottom of the ocean, this slot is absolutely bursting with pastel colours and visually stunning plant life. Above the reels, there are three wholesome-looking fish with a red clownfish, a goldfish and a green angel fish.
These characters also appear on the reels followed by other symbols such as feeding scatters, turtles and treasure chests. Players will notice that the view of this slot is quite strange as the reels are absolutely tiny and there is a lot going on screen. It definitely feels like the actual reels should be larger to allow the player to see what is going on.
Despite this, the overall visuals are quite impressive and more tasteful than we expected for a fishing slot. The music in the slot feels like elevator music with a jazz score played throughout which just adds to the calmness of the slot.
When we started playing this slot, we did not know what to expect. The overall design and visuals of the game suggest that there isn't a huge amount going on but this is not the case. There are seven different bonus rounds with special bonuses as well as four fixed jackpots which is absolutely remarkable for an online slot.
The general user interface is quite hard to navigate as the buttons are absolutely tiny. The spin button is centred underneath the reels and the bet level is just to the right of it. Anyone struggling can find the paytable section above the reels, but there are 16 different pages with information so it can be quite frustrating to look through.
Gold Fish Feeding Time delivers with the gameplay but falls short slightly with the win potential. During our gameplay, we only found the maximum win to be 1,000x the stake through the fixed jackpots but this is not enough for some players.
This game is a former land-based slot and has been converted to the online space which is why the maximum win could be so low. Thankfully, the RTP definitely makes up for this with a solid amount of 96%.
Do not judge a book by its cover. That is the lesson learned in Gold Fish Feeding Time as this slot may look quaint and innocent, but it's overflowing with intense gameplay moments through the epic bonus rounds.
We were expecting something barren of features and were pleasantly surprised. If only the win potential matched the impressive gameplay, then Gold Fish Feeding Time would have been a masterpiece from Light & Wonder.
