If you have played slot games or been around online casinos for a while, you will undoubtedly have heard the name Fishin Frenzy. The game debuted in 2014 and very much took the scene by storm. Then, six years later, we have a Megaways version of the original, also by Blueprint Gaming, and the game we’re checking out today is Fishin Frenzy with jackpots in tow. So you could suggest that Blueprint are taking the Fishin Frenzy brand and making it appealing and accessible to everyone, which is most certainly a good thing.
It’s easy to see why any version of Fishin Frenzy is sure to flourish at online casinos because of the solid foundations they’re built on. Blueprint Gaming already has the base model, which they largely stick to, and then they reinvent, add and innovate to create something that punters want to play. And in the case of Fishin Frenzy Jackpot King, it’s bringing not one but three progressive jackpots into play, which are always going to be a significant draw to punters. You don’t change something that isn’t broken, after all. But, if you can improve it in some way, shape or form, you do so.
Talking of not changing something that isn’t broken, this Fishin Frenzy release isn’t one that is dated and stuck in 2014. But, how the game is presented visually and the simple but effective approach, which served the original and the Megaways versions well, are still very much intact. And so they should be. Punters who have played a game from the Fishin Frenzy collection previously will know what to expect, and they’ll kind of demand to see similar again. And for those who are new to the series, it makes it easier for them to get to grips with proceedings.
When you watch a movie that is a part of a collection, you expect to see the same characters throughout in the main. There is a continuation of sorts. And the same applies to video slots such as Fishin Frenzy, where there are multiple versions available to play. So, it will come as no surprise that the icons we see in Fishin Frenzy Jackpot King are similar to what has gone before. And, let’s face it, there’s only so much you can do with the theme anyway.
The fisherman wild is still the top symbol to watch out for, and it will pay up to 500x the bet when five appear across a payline. There are also other fishing-related icons such as seagulls, fishing reels, tackle boxes, rubber rings and fish. There are also several royals to fill out the offering, and they pay a maximum of 10x the bet.
As we mentioned above, the fisherman wild is the top paying icon in Fishin Frenzy Jackpot King, and it’s also going to act as a substitute for other standard symbols appearing on the reels. But, of course, the fisherman wild cannot replace the scatter, which is another crucial icon where bonuses are concerned.
Three or more scatters will trigger the free spins feature. But be aware, the more scatters in view when triggering the bonus round, the more free spins you will have to play with. Five scatters, for example, will deliver twenty free games.
The original version of Fishin Frenzy brought the game to the masses, and then the Megaways version presented us with more ways to win than ever before. Fishin Frenzy Jackpot King is, of course, the game where three progressive jackpots are up for grabs.
You can trigger the jackpot feature on any spin, but you will need five jackpot king overlay icons in view for this to happen. You then spin the reels to collect crowns. As you collect them, you will climb the multiplier ladder, with fifteen opening the door to the jackpot king wheel of fortune, where the progressives are lurking.
Whether you’re a fan of the Fishin Frenzy original or not, what Blueprint Gaming do is ensure there is a version of the game for everyone. In this release, there is the opportunity to win a progressive jackpot and score some massive multipliers, which is music to our ears.
