Get your hook and bait ready for a holiday fishing adventure on the slot from Reel Kingdom, powered by Pragmatic Play. Bigger Bass Blizzard: Christmas Catch is the next addition to the growing series, featuring more paylines, wild substitutions and a Free Spins round with money-collect symbols and increasing multipliers that can lead to wins of up to 4,000 times your bet.
Casinos to play Bigger Bass Blizzard: Christmas Catch
Bigger Bass Blizzard: Christmas Catch is a video slot with five reels, four rows and 12 fixed paylines. Wins are awarded for two to five matching symbols landing on a line from left to right only. You can go ice fishing on desktop, tablet or mobile from 0.12 to 240 credits per spin. The game has maximum volatility (5/5) with a default RTP of 96.08%. Lower models are offered at 95.07% and 94.07%.
The visuals are new on this occasion, changing from a summerly sea scenery to a wintery background with a frozen water surface, snow-covered trees and ice pickles hanging from the top. Fittingly, the fisherman has replaced the previously used truck with a snowmobile. A similarly cheerful soundtrack provides the main audio to the gameplay.
The pay symbols start at the low end with card royals from 10 through to A, awarding across the board 10x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed by a tackle box, dragonfly, fishing rod and the fisherman on a snowmobile. Hit five on a line to win 50x to 200x your stake.
Fish symbols are again the money symbols, paying up to 5x your bet when five land on a line. The coin values displayed on them will activate during the Free Spins only. The fisherman in winter gear is the wild, performing the usual substitution duties while a fish on a hook acts as the scatter.

Bigger Bass Blizzard: Christmas Catch Slot Features
Pragmatic Play is adding more titles to its Fishin’-themed series, and who can blame them, after all, Big Bass Bonanza and its siblings such as Bigger Bass Bonanza are some of their most popular releases in the last two years. Bigger Bass Blizzard – Christmas Catch is as the name indicates dedicated to the holiday period but considering the differences to the other slots in the series, it might just be an option at any time of the year.
The only feature is similar to the other slots in the series, requiring you to hit three, four or five scatters for 10, 15 and 20 Free Spins respectively. Landing only two scatters might see a random hook appear to pull up the missing one. The Free Spins cannot be retriggered as such but more can be won during the bonus round via a collection mechanic.
Any time one or more Fish money symbols land together with the Fisherman Wild, he will collect all coin values in view and add them to the winning amount for the feature. Possible prizes on the fish are x2, x5, x10, x15, x20, x25, x50 or x4000. Hitting the most valuable will instantly end the bonus round as the game has a win cap of 4,000 times your bet.
Each Fisherman Wild is added to the collection meter at the top with four needed to progress one level. You will start with your won Free Spins and the Fisherman Wild at x1. Reach level two and you will retrigger 10 Free Spins and get an increase for the multiplier to x2.
Levels three and four award the same retrigger with multipliers going to x3 and x10 respectively. Each level is fully completed before you can advance to the next one, however, any Fisherman Wild over the needed four is still collected. No further retriggers are available after you reach the final stage.
And there is more. Landing only Fisherman Wilds on a free spin but no Fish money symbols might see a random number of them being added to the screen. In turn, hitting only Fish money symbols but no collect symbol may see one or two hooks appearing to pull Fisherman Wilds and/or more Fish money symbols into view.
Where available, you can buy direct entry to the Free Spins by using the Bonus Buy feature. For 100x your stake, you can purchase a bonus triggering spin with a guaranteed minimum of three scatter symbols. The RTP for the Bonus Buy features is 96.07%.
Christmas surprise or not? Overall, Bigger Bass Blizzard: Christmas Catch has little new to discover other than one additional row and 12 instead of 10 paylines. The only bonus feature is identical to the others, basically, collect money symbols to advance to the next stage with a fresh set of 10 Free Spins. The big fish with a 4,000x prize value certainly seems enticing, although, unfortunately, that number also represents the overall win cap for the slot. A higher win potential would have certainly been desirable.
