4 Fantastic Fish Slot Review

I’m not a fan of fishing – let me get that out of the way so you know what you’re dealing with. I’ve tried it many times and invariably, it’s just become an excuse to get pissed.

And drinking is always the better option when compared to hours of sitting around watching your line bob in the water while heat stroke and boredom set in.

Maybe if I’d hooked a big trophy fish, I might have felt differently about a “sport” centered on yanking a steel hook through the mouth of our oldest ancestors. Then again, maybe not.

Be that as it may, this is 4 Fantastic Fish slot from 4ThePlayer and for better or worse, I’m going to see what treasures it yields.


Sweet Neptune’s hairy gills – I always imagined that there would be a special place in Hell for golfers and fishermen, so this must be the seventh circle then.

This game is an all-out assault on the senses. The 6-reel grid and background scream with colors and cartoon characters, while the soundtrack blares out reggae music. Sarcasm aside, it’s all very upbeat and at least this game’s not about Egypt or Norse gods for a change.

But here’s the clincher: you just have to see what this game looks like in portrait mode on a phone! Opt for the Big Reel Portrait Mode and those 6 reels take up almost the entire screen and the reels spin from right to left, instead of top to bottom.

If that’s not to your taste, you can rather play with the classic small reels. But seriously, just check it out in the large format – it’s amazeballs!

So, is 4 Fantastic Fish slot all frivolous fun and no substance? The answer would be no – 96% RTP, 4,096 ways to win, a high volatility rate, and a €225,000 max win sounds like a serious game to me.

The only thing is that this one’s for fiat players only.


The boat WILD symbol replaces all others, except the Scatter.


Landing 3 or more fish symbols on any reel will award cash prizes:

Reel 1: 0.1x to 1.8x your total bet
Reel 2: 0.6x to 3x your total bet
Reel 3: 1.5x to 5x your total bet
Reel 4: 2.5x to 10x your total bet
Reel 5: 5x to 25x your total bet
Reel 6: 10x to 50x your total bet

The bigger the fish, the more valuable the prize.


Land that marlin Scatter symbol 3 times simultaneously and you’ll be into the Re-spins Bonus round. Those reels that had a triggering Scatter on em are now open – the others are locked down with chains. You can unlock those reels though, by landing an additional Scatter on them.

You’ll be gifted 3 re-spins at the start of the round, and new fish symbols will reset the counter (and also become sticky). Fill the reels with fish and a shark will swim over that reel and gobble down the little buggers – all prize money will now be added up and doubled.

You might even see giant squid at some point. During the Re-spin Bonus, it randomly moves fish symbols to unlocked reels while during the base game, it also moves fish symbols but now it’s to create or improve wins.


Jackpots take place on reel 6 so you’ll need to look out for the 4 fantastic fish displaying their respective prizes. These symbols need to be part of a win and they will award whichever prize they represent:

Big = 100x
Super = 500x
Mega = 2,000x
Ultra = 10,000x

This game has the distinct honor of having the longest Bonus round I’ve ever played, so when the round kicks off, just note that you’ll need to get comfortable for a while.


Fishermen are known for their patience. Slot players, maybe not so much. Luckily, we have a Buy feature which gives you instant access to the Re-spin feature – for a fee of 60x your bet.


Like a line running through water, the gameplay on 4 Fantastic Fish slot was error-free during the hundreds of spins I inflicted upon it. It didn’t make a difference whether I was playing on my mobile phone or laptop or using Safari or Chrome – it was all good.

Maximum Win

Forget going out in the blazing sun and dealing with the frustration of lost catches and missed opportunities, I’d rather take my chances on a slot game played where and how I want.

And the payoff could be seriously substantial – there’s €225,000 waiting to be won on this game. And that’s thanks to a generous 15,000x multiplier at the max bet of €15 (the minimum bet is €0.10).


So, the question is: was I hooked by 4 Fantastic Fish slot? Definitely not at first, but it grew on me, I’m ashamed to admit.

It is a fun game, no matter how you slice the sushi. And thanks to the squid that pops up to help when it feels like it, the jackpots (which could potentially also land during the base game), and that looooon Re-spin Bonus, there’s ample opportunity to make some moolah.

And, lest we forget, you can bring in some mega multipliers, too. I say the following through clenched teeth and with the shine of shame on my cheeks – I liked this game.
