The symbols on the 5 reels and 3 paylines include an old boot, a penguin, a polar bear and a bucket of fish. The lower-value icons are the usual playing cards, and there are 25 fixed paylines. High volatility and innovative special features are expected to create exciting gameplay.
Bonus Chance Mechanic
The Bonus Chance mechanic is debuted in Fishin’ for Gold, and is one of several new tools that iSoftBet plans to roll out in 2020. This feature involves a bonus meter that is seen above the reels, with 100 small parts on the meter.
Each time 2 bonus symbols, which are represented by a smiling fish, land on the reels at the same time one of the tiny zones on the meter changes from red to green. The Bonus Chance mechanic can be randomly triggered at any time, and players get to decide if they want to spin a wheel and try to activate the free spins round, or not.
The more green areas that are on the meter, the better the chances of successfully triggering the free spins. Since each wheel spin requires players to spend 1x their stake and failure to activate the free spins round resets all meter areas to red, many choose to wait until several green areas are seen.
Animals Go Fishing
Fishin’ for Gold gets its name from its innovative, engaging bonus round. When three bonus symbols are seen at the same time, the free spins round begins. Here, players need to choose one of four animals – a penguin, polar bear, walrus or lion – who are ready to go fishing.
Each animal anger is above an ice hole, and if they’re selected, they pull up their catch. Whenever they pull up a fish, they get a free spin, and any other symbol they pull up adds a Wild Symbol to the game. Some of the Wilds also feature multipliers, to help players win more.
A special Gone Fishing sign can also be seen during the free spins, and when three appear two more free spins are added. Fishin’ for Gold is launching soon, and desktop, tablet and smartphone players can enjoy being reeled in!
