Wild Catch Video Slots Game
Wild Catch is a video slots game developed and released by Microgaming. The game offers players five reels and 243 ways of winning.
The theme of Wild Catch revolves around fishing, and it features bright animations and graphics illustrative of sunny days by the sea. Sound-wise, the game features a fitting tune and a jingle is played every time a player lands a winning combination. Some of the symbols include fishing images such as a fishing boat, fishing hooks, a scale, fish, fisherman, and a trophy, as well as standard deck high value playing cards.
The Game Basics
Wild Catch may be accessed online as a free no-download Flash game, but it may also be played for real money.
The game does not offer defined pay lines but, instead, operates on a 243 ways of winning setup. Any matching symbols on adjacent reels will result in a winning combination and resultant payout.
In order to begin playing, players need to set their coin denomination, ranging from 0.01 to 0.50 and decide how many coins they wish to bet, which can go up to a total of ten coins. Due to the 243 ways of winning, the standard bet per line will be multiplied by thirty to give the total bet per spin.
Once the bets have been determined, players can move on to manually spin the reels by hitting the ‘Spin’ button and then wait for the reels to come to a stop and reveal the winning combinations, if any.
Two Free Game Features
Wild Catch offers two free game features, which provide players with additional chances of winning.
The first free game feature is triggered by the scatter symbol. When players land three, four, or five of the scatter symbols, represented by the fisherman icon, anywhere on the reels, the free game feature will be activated. The number of free spins won will depend on how many scatter symbols have appeared on the reels.
If players land three fisherman scatter symbols, they will receive ten free spins. If they land four fisherman scatter symbols, they will receive fifteen free spins. Finally, if they land five of the fisherman scatter symbols, players will be rewarded with twenty free spins. During this feature, any wild wins will initially come with a one-time multiplier, and any additional wild wins will increase the multiplier, going up to a maximum multiplier of ten.
The second free game feature in Wild Catch is triggered by the wild symbol, which is represented by the fish icon. If players land three wild symbols on the second, third, and fourth reels, this will trigger the free game feature. Players will initially receive five free spins with a three time multiplier. For every additional wild win, players will receive one additional free spin. The wild symbol may also be used to substitute any of the other symbols, except for the scatter symbol, to complete winning pay lines and make up the best possible winning combinations.
Both of the free spins features may be re-triggered, but neither one can be triggered when players are currently playing the other feature.
