Big Fin Bay slot REVIEW

Big Fin Bay ReviewWhen we first laid eyes on Big Fin Bay, we were sure Thunderkick had come up with a Fishin' Frenzy Megaways copycat of some kind, but that’s not really the case. There is no Reel ‘Em bonus round here, and although the Pay Ways engine looks like a Megaways clone, the crafty Swedish developer has managed to come up with their own highly unique and potent twist.

Unlike in Megaways titles, the number of win ways stays firmly fixed at 5,040 during base game play. You will always land a different configuration of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 symbols per reel, but this can change in a big way during the bonus round. Fans of the Fishin’ Frenzy franchise will enjoy the intentionally dated appearance, and the idyllic mediterranean village in the background will appeal to the dreamer in you.

Big Fin Bay Slot Features

The Marlin Wild can land on all 6 reels, and it will step in for all regular pay symbols to help you form winning combos. Whenever a wild is included in a win, it will expand to cover the full reel. A randomly triggered Mystery Wild feature comes about on a regular basis in the base game, and this turns up to 3 reels fully wild for the current spin.

The Bonus Round is triggered when you land at least 3 scatters anywhere in sight. Each scatter reel awards up to 6 free spins, and you can thus get as many as 36 free spins in total from each trigger. Each wild you land will expand to cover the full reel as in the base game, but now you’re also granted a respin.

During the respin, you get an extra wild symbol added to the wild reel, which again expands the number of rows and pay ways. The expanded reels do not reset for the duration of the bonus round, and each reel can get up to 7 symbols in height. Each fully expanded reel awards +3 extra free spins, and if you manage to expand all reels you’ll benefit from 117,649 pay ways.

The 200 Spins Big Fin Bay Slot Experience

Being fans of the wildly popular Fishin’ Frenzy series, we were surely excited when a fishing-themed Thunderkick slot dumped down on our desk like a fresh catch. Their unique take on the Megaways concept intrigued us from the get-go, and we had a very good time testing Big Fin Bay. You can see all the highlights from our session in the brief and edited video below.

Review Summary

Thunderkick has never stooped to the level of pure copycat projects. They always add their own unique twist to things, adding value to the whole industry in the process. This is also the case with Big Fin Bay, although it might look like a Megaways engine rip-off at first sight. The number of Pay Ways are fixed at 5,040 in the base game however, and only the symbol rows configuration alters per spin.

The expanding wilds in the base game will often boost your winnings significantly, keeping things interesting while you wait for 3+ scatters to land. The bonus round is usually quite lengthy, due to all the extra spins and respins you’ll get, and it’s good fun progressively expanding the reels by landing wilds. The 15,040x potential is solid, and we certainly enjoyed the simplistic Fishin’ Frenzy-inspired visual presentation.

If you love Big Fin Bay Slot you should also try:

Fishin' Frenzy Megaways - is basically a beefed up version of the popular original game, where both the simplistic visual presentation and the core features have been retained. Reeling in cash fish has never been more lucrative, as you can land payouts up to 10,000x your stake.

Wild Catch - is the game for punters who’ve dreamed about fly fishing in a mountain river in Montana. The visuals could hardly be more idyllic, and the tranquility covers up the volatile nature of this game. You will benefit from random wild reels, fixed jackpots and 3 unique bonus rounds for payouts up to 9,000x.

Big Bass Bonanza - is basically a Fishin’ Frenzy knock-off from Reel Kingdom, and it’s all about reeling in cash fish via the fisherman wild. The addition of a progressive multiplier makes this a somewhat unique experience however, and you can win up to 2,100x your stake.
