Wild Link Frenzy slot REVIEW
Wild Link Frenzy ReviewIn Wild Link Cleopatra we got spooked by her soul-piercing gaze, and in Wild Link Frenzy we felt like the bearded fisherman was hitting on us. He’s holding eye-contact way too long with a strange smile on his lips, but he seems competent enough when it comes to trout fishing and reel expansion. This is one of few fishing slots where the fisherman actually swings his rod, and the North American river scenery is stunning.
The river is bathing in the sunset, and the Wild Link feature triggers on a regular basis to allow for cash fishing also in the base game. This is when the grid expands as the fisherman does his thing, and you get more of the same in the bonus round. The big difference is the Big Bass Bonanza-inspired multiplier and extra spins upgrade trail, and also the 3 smaller jackpots are upgraded from the multiplier. The 5,000x potential is certainly competitive in this genre, but we wouldn’t turn our back to this fisherman for too long at the time.
Wild Link Frenzy Slot - Reels Screen
Wild Link Frenzy Slot Features
The premium symbols pay between 3 and 5 x your stake for 5 of a kind wins, and the Fisherman Wild pays 10x your stake for the same. The Wild steps in for pay symbols to help complete wins, and it appears on reels 2 to 5 in the base game in that regard. The Wild is 3 positions in height, but it will not always land fully in view.
That being said, the Fisherman Wild can also appear on reel 1, and this triggers the Wild Link feature. It will always nudge fully in place when it lands on reel 1, and the fisherman can also expand reels 2 to 5 with up to 3 extra rows. The Fisherman Wild will then collect all cash fish prizes in view.
A special Fish Frenzy symbol can appear during the Wild Link feature as well, and it comes with an oval frame. This symbol always awards more than one fish prize, and it can also reveal jackpot prizes. The fish jumps around per new prize you get, and there is no telling how many times it will reward you.
The Pick Bonus Game can trigger at random times when fish symbols are present, and this goes for the base game as well as the Wild Link feature. The pick game is all about matching up 3 of the same icons, and this awards the Mini, Minor, Major, or Mega prizes worth 20x, 50x, 500x, or 5,000x your stake, respectively.
You need 3 scatters in view to trigger the Free Spins Bonus Round, and you start with 10 free spins. If you trigger the feature with more than 3 scatters, you get the Epic version, and it comes with 2 to 5 Wild Fisherman added to the multiplier upgrade trail from the get-go. Reels 2 to 5 can expand by up to 6 rows when the Wild Link feature triggers in the bonus round.
The fisherman wild is collected after each Wild Link trigger, and the bonus round is upgraded for every 4 collected. The Mini, Minor, and Major jackpots are also upgraded by the current multiplier, but not the Mega prize. This means that also the Major prize is worth 5,000x if you reach the top-tier x10 multiplier.
You get 10 new free spins per upgrade, and the cash fish multiplier goes from x1 to x2, x3, and x10. If you reach the x10 multiplier level, no more upgrades are possible. Non-UK players can take advantage of the Bonus Buy Discount feature when the bonus round is triggered by the minimum of 3 scatters. You can then purchase the Epic Free Spins tier for 50x your stake. Non-UK players can also purchase the Epic Bonus Round at any time, and this will set you back 110x your stake.
The 200 Spins Wild Link Frenzy Slot Experience
We purchase the Epic Bonus Round not too long after the 10-minute highlights video starts, and we got 4 fishermen added to the multiplier trail. This upgraded us to the x2 multiplier tier from the get-go, and we managed to go all the way to the top-tier x10 multiplier. You get to see plenty of fishing in other words, and simply hit the play button below to get started right away.
There was something strange about this fisherman on the left-hand side that bothered us from the get-go. It’s like he has this smug little Mona Lisa smile, while looking straight at you in a somewhat creepy way, like he’s either in love or mocking you. Anyway, he knows his fly fishing at least, and he will help expand the grid for you when the Wild Link feature triggers. Amazingly, he does all that without breaking eye-contact, giving you little Brokeback Mountain wink to boot.
Jokes aside, SpinPlay has created a decent installment in the fishing slot genre, and the sunset river scenery is certainly idyllic enough. The game comes with solid animations as well, and the Wild Link feature can reel in decent payouts also in the base game (at least if you land a jackpot). The bonus round is taken straight from the Big Bass Bonanza playbook, but we like that also the 3 smaller jackpots are upgraded by the multiplier. The 5,000x potential makes this a competitive installment, if you don’t mind the bearded fisherman hitting on you that is.
