Crabbin’ for Cash Extra Big Splash Base Game and Features
Crabbin’ For Cash Extra Big Splash is a 5-reel Video Slot with 10 fixed pay lines. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more of the same symbols (or 2 or more of the 2 highest-paying symbols) land from left to right, starting from the leftmost reel.

Low-paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen, Jack, and Ten. Wilds only appear during Free Spins, substituting for all High and Low-paying symbols.
Not much has gone into the base game of Crabbin’ for Cash Extra Big Splash, but there is a lot going on in the Free Spins round, where Fish symbols have been swapped out for other sea life in the Pick a Crustacean feature. More on this below!
Crabbin’ for Cash Extra Big Splash Free Spins
Landing 3, 4, or 5 Boat Scatters in the base game triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 10, 15, and 20 Free Spins respectively.
Before the Free Spins round begins, you will have the opportunity to activate certain Upgrades via the Pick-a-Crustacean Feature. Pick a number of Crustaceans to reveal random Upgrades, until the ‘Start Free Spins’ is revealed or 5 Upgrades are active.
- Hat Tag – Adds a random Cash Tag to this symbol to be collected by the Fisherman.
- Ring Tag – Adds a random Cash Tag to this symbol to be collected by the Fisherman.
- Cage Tag – Adds a random Cash Tag to this symbol to be collected by the Fisherman.
- Anchor Tag – Adds a random Cash Tag to this symbol to be collected by the Fisherman.
- Trail Boost – Progresses your position on the Fisherman Trail.
- +Fisherman – Additional Fisherman symbols are added to the reels.
- +Golden Fisherman – Increases your chance of a Golden Fisherman appearing on the reels.
- Respin – All non-Cash and Fisherman symbols will be respun. This will continue until the win can longer be improved.
- +Games – Awards additional Free Spins.
During Free Spins, the Fisherman symbol is active. When a Fisherman symbol lands in view, the Prize on all present Crustacean symbols in view will be awarded.
Each Fisherman or Golden Fisherman symbol that lands will be collected and stored atop the Fisherman Trail for a chance to win additional Free Spins and Upgrades to the Crustacean Cash symbols.
Every 4th Fisherman/Golden Fisherman will award an additional +5 Free Spins and an Upgrade to all Crustacean symbols. Collecting 12 Fisherman/Golden Fisherman symbols will upgrade the Crustacean symbols to the maximum level, awarding an additional +5 Free Spins.
If a Golden Fisherman does land at the same time as Crustacean symbols, it will award a Golden Multiplier. Before all Crustacean values are awarded, you will be met with 3 Crab Pots. Pick one to reveal a random Multiplier value ranging from x2 to x10.
Crabbin’ for Cash Extra Big Splash Bonus Buy
Those outside the UK will benefit from a Bonus Buy option. Blueprint Gaming has granted players access to 2 Bonus Buy options as follows.

Crabbin’ for Cash Extra Big Splash: Our Verdict
It seems that every time Blueprint Gaming brings out a new slot that is part of a sequel or series, the title just gets longer and longer like Big Catch Bass Fishing Megaways for example. The title may be a mouthful but what did really think of the game itself?
Crabbing is a most welcome change to regular fishing, which is something we’ve done our fair share of in a number of slots recently, but is this type of theme something players can get behind? If you can’t beat them, you may as well join them.
Crabbin’ For Cash Extra Big Splash inhabits the Pick-a-Fish Feature seen in Big Catch Bass Fishing Megaways, minus the Fish of course. The Pick-a-Crustacean feature has the power to enhance your Free Spins round with special Upgrades that boost the performance and potential of the Free Spins round.
Lending a helping hand in Free Spins is both the Fisherman and Golden Fisherman symbols. Similar to Big Bass Bonanza, each 4th Fisherman symbol collected will retrigger the round by awarding additional Free Spins and Upgrades to the Crustacean symbols’ Cash values.
And it doesn’t stop there! If you’re lucky enough to lure in a Golden Fisherman symbol, you will be awarded a special Golden Multiplier between x2 and x10 by choosing 1 of 3 Crab Pots.
All in all, if you’re looking to take a breather from fishing slots, but still fancy a day out on the water, Crabbin’ for Cash Extra Big Splash is a game we would recommend!
