Big Bass Bonanza Meaways is an exhilarating online slot game that takes players on a fishing adventure like no other! Well, almost like no other. The Big Bass series is Pragmatic Play’s answer to Blueprint’s immensely popular Fishin’Frenzy series. And there are a lot of similarities. But when these include great Cash Collect mechanisms, who’s complaining, right?
Big Bass Bonanza Megaways features a 6-reel layout with an additional 4-position horizontal reel across the top, offering players a maximum of 46,656 ways to win. With an RTP of 96.7%, this slot provides players with a fair chance of landing lucrative wins. The betting range is suitable for various budgets, with a minimum bet of €0.20 and a maximum bet of €250.
The game’s symbols include traditional card ranks from J to A, representing the low-paying symbols. The premiums have tackle boxes, lures, fishing rods, and a fishing float, adding to the immersive atmosphere of the game.
One of the standard features in the Big Bass Bonanza series is the appearance of fish symbols with random cash values, and the Megaways game is no different. These symbols can award line wins during the base game and cash values in the collect feature during free spins, giving a big boost to the win potential. And every line win is followed by a cascade, which removes winning symbols from the reels, potentially leading to new wins.
Once three or more scatters land and the free spins kick in, fish symbols are no longer affected by the cascade feature if they are involved in a win. This is important because whenever a fisherman symbol lands, all fish symbols are collected, and the values awarded to the player.
Once they’ve been reeled in, the fisherman himself is collected in a metre beside the grid. Any time the metre hits 4 fisherman symbols, players are rewarded with 10 extra Free Spins and a fish symbol multiplier.
Big Bass Bonanza Megaways offers two random features involving the fisherman symbols: Bazookas and Dynamite. If fisherman symbols appear on the reels without any fish symbols for him to catch, players can expect one of two random features to trigger.
The Dynamite feature explodes random symbols off the reels, replacing them with fish symbols. The Bazooka feature blows away all symbols except the fishermen, allowing new symbols to replace them, potentially creating winning combinations and fish cash wins.

The fish symbol multiplier is awarded when you collect four fisherman symbols during the Free Spins feature. It increases the value of fish symbols collected, leading to potentially bigger wins.
