Mega Greatest Catch Bonus Buy Slot Review

The title of Mega Greatest Catch Bonus Buy slot from Evoplay got me thinking: who’s the ugliest dude to ever pull a stunning babe?

Now, I know you’ll probably be shouting “Mick Jagger” or “Keith Richards,” and rightfully so. But I submit to you that there’s a challenger to the throne, and that’s Ric Ocasek of The Cars fame.

If you don’t know what he looks like, do yourself a favor and Google him. So, that dude married Polish supermodel Paulina Porizkova and if that’s not a mega greatest catch, then I don’t know what is.

Gameplay

I love what Evoplay has done with this game aesthetically! We’ve got a split-screen view of a lake with a fisherman in his boat floating on the water’s surface, and beneath it is the 5-reel grid.

The reels are borderless, so the symbols seem to be floating, which perfectly enmeshes with the theme.

Things look equally incredible on a mobile phone. In portrait mode, there’s maybe a little bit too much foreground, but the game fills the entire screen and it’s so impactful. Landscape mode mirrors what you’d see on a laptop, so any orientation will work a treat.

The Wild is our fisherman, and the other symbols are boots, hats, frogs, cooler bags, and fish. Wilds only appear during the Free Spins feature (whereas Scatters only appear in the base game) and replace all symbols other than the Scatter.

There are 12 paylines in this game, and the stats are impressive: 96.03% RTP, a medium/high volatility, and the max win is a helluva catch, at €300,000!

The only currency you won’t be able to play in is Dogecoin.

Features

FREE SPINS:

As you’d expect, you’ll need to land Scatters to trigger this round: 3 Scatters = 10 Free Spins, 4 Scatters = 15 spins, while 5 Scatters = 20 spins.

The blue fish symbols now carry a random multiplier value (2x, 5x, 10x, 15x, 20x, 25x, 50x, or 2,000x), and their values will be won during the Fishing sub-feature.

The FISHING sub-feature is triggered when you land at least 1 fish symbol at the same time as a Wild. Wilds will now collect all the multiplier values.

Every fourth Wild that lands during Free Spins will get you an extra 10 spins and the fish multipliers will also increase. It plays out like this: the first 4 Wilds = 2x; the second 4 Wilds = 3x; and the third 4 Wilds = 10x.

The extra Free Spins with the new multipliers are played after the previous spins have been depleted.

The DYNAMITE sub-feature is triggered after a losing spin when there is at least 1 Wild without any fish symbols on the reels. Now, 3 – 6 regular symbols will be replaced by Fish symbols.

BONUS BUY:

Taking this option allows you to buy Free Spins at the following costs:

10 Free Spins = 45x your bet
15 Free Spins = 87x your bet
20 Free Spins = 137x your bet

Performance

The only thing I usually catch when I go fishing is a cold or a migraine. At least I didn’t have to worry about adding buffering issues or other glitches to the mix while rocking Mega Greatest Catch Bonus Buy slot.

If my experience is anything to go by, you should have no worries playing on the device or browser of your choice.

Maximum Win

This is one trophy I wouldn’t mind landing! The €300,000 max win comes about as a combo of a 10,000x multiplier and a €30 bet. The minimum bet for the game is a mere €0.10.

Conclusion

Mega Greatest Catch Bonus Buy slot is the exact same version as its predecessor, just with the addition of a Bonus Buy element.

I’m always left feeling a bit annoyed with these reskins because I feel that follow-up games should be different and offer a discernable improvement. I don’t know that the mere addition of a Bonus Buy qualifies.

Nonetheless, if you liked the previous version and feel that you’ll use the Bonus Buy, then it’s a no-brainer. If you like fishing games and haven’t tried this one, I’d say it’s worth your while to try.
