Bigger Bass Bonanza Slot Review 2021

Big Bass Bonanza is back and it’s bigger and better than ever! Bigger Bass Bonanza looks to build upon the original slot which shocked as a game that made a fishing type slot that was even better than trusty old favourites like Fishin’ Frenzy. Despite it’s brutal nature, Big Bass Bonanza was packed with both excitement and potential as you progressed through Free Spins to re-trigger the game with multipliers for even bigger fish.

As the name suggests, Bigger Bass Bonanza offers even bigger and better opportunities to catch the big one. This time around, our fisherman friend has left behind the tranquillity of a quiet lake in favour of the city lights and Hawaiian shirts. If a holiday to Miami doesn’t warrant a fishing trip, then nothing does.

Let’s get our fishing gear ready once more and dive into this Bigger Bass Bonanza Slot Review to see just how much bigger this new slot is.

Bigger Bass Bonanza Base

Bigger Bass Bonanza Theme

Thie lights of Miami shine bright in Bigger Bass Bonanza, and it’s a scene that is very far removed from the original slot. Reel Kingdom have done well to create a picturesque setting for a sequel, and that’s not all that has changed. This time around you get a funky and upbeat soundtrack to accompany the party vibes of the city, and overall it feels like a pretty exciting place to be.

In terms of graphics elsewhere, everything has been kept pretty much the same. The fisherman must have fancied himself a big of a retreat. Let’s just hope he doesn’t have a few too many and fall asleep when it comes to that all-important bonus round.

Bigger Bass Bonanza: Betting and Symbols

Betting options in Bigger Bass Bonanza is a little strange to say the least, at least compared to Big Bass Bonanza. Betting options can be customised by Coins Per Line and Coin Value, and the lowest and highest options are £/€0.12 per spin and £/€240 per spin. There’s no real nice round figures when it comes to betting in this one, which is probably due to the extra lines in play.

When it comes to symbols, everything is pretty much consistent with the first slot with Boats, Fishing Rods, Tackle, Tackle Boxes and Fish.

Low paying symbols are Ace, King, Queen, Jack and 10. There’s also a Wild symbol, but this only appears in Free Spins.

Bigger Bass Bonanza: The Base Game and Features

Bigger Bass Bonanza is a 5 reel slot with 12 fixed pay lines. To form a win, you’ll need at least 2 of the highest paying symbol or 3 of any other symbol to connect from left to right on consecutive reels, starting from the left-most reel.

You’ll notice the return of the Fish Symbols which hold within them monetary values. You can pretty much ignore this within the Base Game, because the value here only apply to the Free Spins. However, any combination of these symbols do still pay on a line.

In all honestly, Bigger Bass Bonanza is pretty much exactly the same as the original slot, except with the inclusion of some extra lines and an extra row. The payouts are formidable if you can get a full line of the higher paying symbols, but the bulk of the excitement is reserved for Free Spins

Big Bass Bonanza players will know all too well that progressing to these rounds are by no means easy. Sometimes, you may not even make it to the first retrigger let alone the ones after it. The brutal nature of Big Bass Bonanza is alive and well in Bigger Bass Bonanza, but you can somewhat forgive it given the potential it has.

Bigger Bass Bonanza features a 4000x fish. Catching this single fish alone would leave you more than happy with the catch of the day, but it’s more of a gargantuan beast than it is a fish, so good luck reeling it in.

Bigger Bass Bonanza Slot: Our Verdict

Overall, not much has changed in Bigger Bass Bonanza. The fundamental mechanics of the first slot have been persisted in to the original, so if you were a big fan of the original slot you’ll undoubtedly love the sequel.

Win capabilities have been doubled from the original slot, so there’s a lot to look forward to in terms of potential. The new figure here is 4,000x, which is great, but a bigger statement could have been made by exponentially increasing the potential. RTP figures here will vary depending on which variant your casino has, with 96.71%, 95.67% and 94.62% variants available. You’ll probably want to check this to ensure that you have the higher RTP variant!

To summarise,  Reel Kingdom and Pragmatic Play have certainly lived up to the name with a bigger and better showing, but it’s essentially the same game on a slightly grander scale.
