Whats not so hot?
The sea is renowned for hiding its treasures but it doesn’t give them up that easily since it’s only reserved for the brave at heart. Microgaming’s Fish Party video slots certainly epitomizes this. The graphics a tad goofy and cartoon like but they’ll put a smile on your face. The theme of the slots is set against the backdrop of the sea where all manner of fish are swimming across the reels. This 243 ways to win, 5 reel underwater slots pays out a top non-progressive jackpot of 97,200 coins.
I won’t say that the game sports a ‘Finding Nemo’ look but it comes pretty darn close and will definitely appeal to all the Nemo fans out there. As you play the game you’ll note that each fish has it’s own striking personality which makes the game even more fun to play. So hats off to Microgaming again for adding a twist and turn here and there but in a good kinda way.
Symbols that appear on the reels is a fish on a hook (poor fellow), starfish, card icons from 10 to Ace, lady like gold fish, porcupine fish, prawn in a clam and various coloured fish. From the looks of things I’d say each fish has its own personality. The average return to player (RTP) is 96% but it shoots up once the free spins mode is triggered. The slots is flushed with free spins, stacked wilds and scatters (clams).
I know you’re quite eager to unlock the treasures on the sea floor but before you do so have a look at your betting options first. The coin range is 0.01 up to 0.05 while the smallest bet per spin is £0.30 up to £15.
The wild symbol is the colourful Fish Party logo, it completes a winning combination when it substitutes all the other symbols adjacent to it except the scatter. During the main game it appears 3 stacked high and during the free spins it appears as 7 high. Therefore, keep your eyes peeled, if it pops up during the free spins it really boosts wins.
Scatter and Free Spins
The scatter icon is the clam, when 3, 4 or 5 of these little critters appear any position on the reels, the free spins mode is triggered. Once the free spins screen opens up you can win any thing from 10 free spins up to 20-it changes sporadically but work on 10. I like the free spins (who doesn’t) simply because when the wild pitches it appears stacked which can result in some crazy cash prizes-nothing fishy about this.
Fish Party is a powerful little slots since it incorporates a slew of treats. As you work your way around the game it will rope you in faster than you can say ‘fish’. It’s packed with superb graphics, stacked wilds and a not too fishy free spins feature. It even comes with a gamble game where all wins can be doubled but the mobile version lacks it. The slots is so much fun mobile players won’t even miss the gamble feature.
