It seems as if players just can’t get enough of fishing-themed slots, and studios can’t resist making them! Red Tiger Gaming has jumped into the water with Bass Boss, their fishing-themed slot machine, which lines up the action with real cash prizes for players to land.
If the name sounds very similar to other fishing-themed slots, the visuals will certainly strike a chord too. There’s water all around, with the reels submerged in the water and no one apart from a lonely fisherman on the horizon.
The 5×4 board provides the perfect bass to start spinning for prizes, with 10 traditional paylines offering the chance to win. This may sound more modest than other slots, but Red Tiger knows how to create appealing mechanics which offer a genuine opportunity to land a big catch. The betting range is on the modest end, starting with a min bet of €0.10 and maxing out at €20.00 total per spin.
The RTP is a thoroughly respectable 95.7% which couples with a high volatility. This means fewer but larger prizes, which might suit players looking to land a whopper.
Playing card royals stack up as the low pays, offering x1 to x3 for a full line of five symbols. The high pays are full of fishy-themed symbols with tackle boxes, reels, fishing hats, and boats netting up to x30 for a maximum combination of five.
Unlike many other online slots, there are no wild symbols included, but there are plenty of other ways to load up on prizes.
Along with all of the other symbols, there is a variety of fish that could appear on the board at any time. These could be grey, blue, green or orange and range in value from x2 to x200. Periodically the fisherman will lower his hook and collect any fish that have landed on the same row.
A Nudge feature means that if you don’t catch any fish, there’s a second chance as the hook is moved to another row. To make things even better, you could also receive a multiplier on the fish you catch with up to a possible x10 available.
The bonus features are what most players get excited about, and if you land three scatter symbols, you’ll unlock the Contest Spins round.
Depending on how many scatters you landed, you’ll receive 10, 15 or 20 free spins. During the Contest Spins Bonus, the fisherman’s hook will remain in the water at all times. He might move his hook up or down to land you more fish on each spin.
All of the fish caught during Contest Spins are tracked on a progress bar, and when you’ve caught eight, you’ll receive a further ten free spins. Each time you move up a level, you’ll receive a multiplier that steadily increases in value up to a maximum of x10.

The fisherman feature does not guarantee a win, but you may get a second chance to collect a prize with the random Nudge feature.
All fish caught during the free spins round will be counted, and every time you reach eight, you will retrigger the bonus.
The top value fish is worth x200.
