Mega Greatest Catch Review
The Mega Greatest Catch slot from Evoplay is a fishing-themed game that's packed full of fun extras. While this genre has been done many times before, Mega Greatest Catch is a cuter and laid-back take on the very popular theme.
Meet your sleepy skipper, Harry, and take to the lake in your little fishing boat. From there, cast your rod and see what you can catch. With 5 reels and 4 rows, there are a lot more symbols in play than with many other games, and the fish, scatter and wild symbols add some extra fun to the base game.
The free spins round is where the action really starts to get going, and although Harry never seems to wake from his slumber, this is certainly your time to reach for that mega catch!
As mentioned, there is nothing particularly new about this game in terms of theme. That said, the graphics and symbols are particularly well done, and we love that you can see your boat bobbing away at the top of the screen with all those wonderful symbols floating around in the depths below.
While the gameplay is varied and dynamic, the overall pace of this game is rather slow and relaxed, which ties in nicely with the very lazy Harry, who is snoozing away in the boat at all times. There is a jolly but calm, almost French-sounding soundtrack to the game as well, so if you like to take your time and really enjoy your slots, then this game could be the perfect one for you.
As far as fishing-themed games go, this one really stands out. It’s far more reminiscent of a relaxed day out on a lake than of going up against creatures from the deep in order to wrangle yourself a prize. But don't let the tranquil pace fool you! There are still plenty of opportunities to bag yourself some pretty serious wins with Mega Greatest Catch.
Evoplay’s Mega Greatest Catch is a pretty standard slot in terms of how you play. With 5 reels and 4 rows, there are 20 symbols in play in the base game, but the rules are still pretty much the same as any other slot game.
Your aim is to match symbols across the reels, left to right, in order to form a winning payline. We would have liked to have seen a few more paylines on offer here, but 12 is still a pretty decent amount. And the addition of scatters and wilds, along with the fish symbols, makes the base game rather exciting to play.
If you're lucky enough to land 3 or more scatter symbols, you can go into the free spins round. Incidentally, this is where that 10x multiplier lies, which is the key to taking home the Mega Greatest Catch jackpot. We also really like the Fishing and Dynamite features, which spice proceedings up quite a bit.
Overall, this is a fun game that's not as crazy on the graphics and sounds as many other slots, and we really enjoyed having a good session with Mega Greatest Catch.
With 12 fixed paylines, this isn't the most dynamic of slot titles at first glance. And with medium to high volatility, you could be waiting around for a while to see a decent win. That said, with a very generous jackpot of 10,000x your stake, and many different symbols and features in both the base game and free spins round, taking home a huge cash prize is definitely not out of the question.
Furthermore, this game is particularly generous when it comes to its free spins. If you land 3 scatter symbols, then you automatically receive 10 free spins to use in the free spins bonus round. This is a lot more than you might see with some other games, so your overall win potential is really rather good with Mega Greatest Catch.
To summarise our experience, we had a really good time with Mega Greatest Catch. The graphics and sounds here are enough to engage you from the moment you open the game, and things really start to heat up in the free spins round.
We were a little disappointed to see just 12 paylines on offer, but with so many special symbols and added extras, along with a massive 10,000x top prize, Mega Greatest Catch has the potential for not just a great evening's entertainment, but also the chance to win a truly fantastic cash prize.
