Let’s Go Fish’n Slots Machine
For those who like outdoor pursuits and being close to nature, fishing is perhaps the perfect pastime, where you can while away the hours on a riverbank, hoping to make that elusive catch.
In a surprising twist perhaps, fishing has also translated well into the digital age, with a number of high selling fishing based video games hitting the market over the years, as well as an ever growing number of slots based upon the subject.
This slot by Aristocrat is based upon a sea fisherman, a particularly happy looking chap wearing a life jacket and a camouflage style hat, who is joined by a far too happy worm (does he realize he is attached to a hook and about to be eaten by a fish?), a demure looking seagull and various pieces of fishing equipment.
How to Win on the Let’s Go Fishing Slot
In the base game wins come your way when landing three or more consecutive symbols from left to right on one of the chosen pay lines. The happy fisherman is the highest paying symbol of all, worth 1,000 coins when hitting five in a row, while the seagull is next on the pay table at 500 coins. Both the worm and the fishing equipment pay out 300 coins for the maximum five, while you’ll also find the playing card characters from Jack to Ace on the reels.
Unusually, you won’t actually find a wild on the reels of the base game. Wilds are commonplace in the base game of online slots, so to find a game where there are none is a surprise, although they will make an appearance during the feature of the game.
The final symbol on the reels is the logo of the game and this acts as the scatter symbol. If you land three anywhere on the reels you’ll win 50 coins, land four and 250 coins will come your way, but land the maximum five and you’ll gain the largest payout of the whole game at 1,250 coins. However, this isn’t the end of it, as three or more will also see you enter the free spins bonus feature.
At the start of the feature you’ll find five random characters fishing on a pier – among these are Sneaky Sam (who is a dog), Busy Bobby, Fishwife Fran, Lazy Larry and Lucky Lucy. You’ll pick one and then they all start fishing. As well as catching fish, they will also catch gold symbols and whichever they catch will now be wild throughout the free spins. You’ll have between 3 and 10 free spins in total, but these can be re-triggered by landing the scatter symbols again.
How the Let’s Go Fish’n Slot Works
This Aristocrat designed slot follows the somewhat standard 5×3 configuration found at the majority of online slots today. The game has a total of 25 pay lines, however as well as paying the usual 25 credits for each spin; you can increase this to 50, 75, 100 or 125, which will increase both the stake and the payouts. You’ll have the option of paying as little as just 2c for each credit, all the way up to $2. A handy auto spin option allows you to set the game playing automatically for 5, 10, 20, 30 or 50 spins.
The slot is set against the backdrop of a particularly nice day at sea. Small white clouds scatter the bright blue sky, while waves gently ripple on the surface of the sea. The viewpoint is that of a fisherman sat on the rocks on the shore, at seemingly a perfect spot to make those all-important catches.
The game has a cartoon style design which gives the reels much color. The game does look a little dated in places – this due to the combination of the simple symbol designs and the lack of any animation when a win is landed. The sound to the slot is a generic one too, without any nod at all to the theme. No, fishing is not the easiest subject to add a soundtrack too, but the sound of splashing water or the squawking of a seagull might have been a nice addition – fortunately you will hear some theme relevant sounds during the feature.
Let’s Go Fish’n Slot Overview
Fishing is one of those pastimes that you either really enjoy, or gain no enjoyment from at all. The same statement could be levelled at this slot. The game is a straightforward one that doesn’t really get going until the bonus feature, but even this isn’t going to excite too much, with few spins and simple added wilds. However, the game will appeal to those who enjoy fast paced, uncomplicated slot play without too many frills.
