Big Bass Mission Fishin': Slot Overview

Would you look at what just washed up on the shore. No, not a shredded dead whale or an enormous jellyfish, but another Big Bass slot from the Pragmatic Play, Reel Kingdom crew. Then again, after what, like 12 thousand Big Bass releases (give or take), ploughing through yet another one might feel about as appealing as sunbathing next to a bloodied whale carcass crawling with maggots. On the flip side, some might be chomping at the bit to get their hands on some more Big Bass action; if so, we better be casting off.

Yeah, the mission angle in Big Bass Mission Fishin' is a bit of a stretch. One of the few places this makes much sense is when the bonus has been triggered, and players must pick their 'mission' out of the two rounds available to them - free spins or Stack the Cash. Outside this, Reel Kingdom has made the game nocturnal (presumably sneakier things happen at night) and included a few quasi-secret agent tweaks to some of the symbols. Otherwise, Big Bass Mission Fishin' is another fishy Big Bass slot that anyone acquainted with the series will be able to spot a mile away.

Nestled between bubbles are 5 reels holding 3 rows of symbols each, and to calculate winning combinations, Big Bass Mission Fishin' has 10 paylines. When betting 10 c to $/€250 per spin, the default RTP is 96.5%. The Ante Bet increases the stake by 50% when switched on in order to have more scatter symbols present on the reels. As for volatility, this is high, at 5 out of 5.

Ten to Ace card ranks are Big Bass Mission Fishin's lows, paying 5 to 10 times the bet for a 5 matching symbol winning line. Next are fish Money symbols, tackle boxes, harpoon guns, dragonflies, and boats. These pay 20 to 200 times the bet for 5 OAK. The fish Money symbols are special as they are assigned a random value of 2x to 5,000x the bet on each spin. Money symbols can be won during the free spins feature when the wild fisherman symbol is added to the reels. The wild also substitutes for all symbols except Money or scatter.

Big Bass Mission Fishin': Slot Features

As part of a fishing slot dynasty par excellence, players will no doubt be aware of the fisherman wild collecting fish Money symbols antics involved in the BBB range. However, Big Bass Mission Fishin' also has a Stack the Cash feature, which is pickable when the bonus round triggers.

Scatters

Hitting 3 or more scatters triggers the bonus feature where players can choose either free spins or Stack the Cash. In the base game, when 2 scatters hit, there is a chance the third one is brought into the screen by a hook or by respins when the scatters on the screen can move down a position without falling off the grid.

Free Spins

When triggered by 3, 4, or 5 scatters, players are awarded 10, 15, or 20 free spins, respectively. Before the spins start, players select files on the screen to reveal modifiers until a boot is revealed, such as:

  • More Fish - more fish are present on the reels.
  • More Fisherman - more wild fisherman symbols are present on the reels.
  • More Dynamites, Hooks, and Bazookas - pretty self-explanatory by now.
  • Start From Level 2 - the progressive feature starts on level 2.
  • +2 Spins - the round starts with 2 extra free spins, and any retrigger benefits from +2 spins.

During free spins, each wild symbol collects the values of all Money symbols in view. Wild symbols are collected, too. Every 4th wild collected awards +10 more free spins and a multiplier for Money symbol values collected of x2 for the second level, x3 for the third level, and x10 for the fourth level. After the fourth level, no more retriggers may occur. In addition, the bonus round boasts these effects:

  • Dynamite Spin Feature - randomly, when there are fisherman symbols on screen, but no fish, at the end of a free spin, fish money symbols may appear in random positions.
  • Hook - can randomly bring fisherman symbols into the screen if there are fish but no fisherman in view at the end of a spin.
  • Bazooka - randomly, when there is a fisherman present but no fish, at the end of the spin, all symbols but fisherman symbols are transformed into something else.

Stack the Cash

When picking this feature, the regular symbols fade away, so only Fish Coins symbols and blanks may land on the reels. The Fish Coin appears on all reels and has a value of 1x to 25x the bet. Below each reel sits a robo-crab. The round starts with 4 respins, and every time a Fish Coin symbol hits, it remains on the reels, and the respins are reset to 4. When a reel is full of Fish Coins, they are removed, and their values are held by the robo-crab. Whenever a new Fish Coin symbol hits, a bomb drops onto a random reel, doubling the values of all Fish Coins on it and the robo-crab below. At the end of the round, when respins run out, the values of all robo-crabs are paid.

Buy Free Spins

Bonus round entry can be bought for 100x the bet and has an RTP of 96.5%. After buying the bonus, players are able to pick free spins or Stack the Cash.

Big Bass Mission Fishin': Slot Verdict

You could almost set your watch by Big Bass releases nowadays since every five minutes or so, another one comes along. Here's another, and okay, it's fine; nothing about it is so repugnantly repellent that chugging down a bucket of fly-ridden chum would be preferable. Reel Kingdom has taken a moment or two to come up with a mildly interesting mission angle to breathe some originality into the game. Fair enough. The idea works to an extent, but also not so much, since Big Bass Mission Fishin' is basically the same old same old stuff, at heart, as a stack of other Big Bass slots.

There is a hold 'n win game bolted on, though, which you don't see attached to a BB slot often, although we kind of did in Big Bass Secrets Of The Golden Lake and Big Bass Bonanza Hold & Spinner. Stack the Cash is a fairly rudimentary version, as well, with nothing thrillingly fish-related to scope out. The innovation, if it can be called that, is the way full reels empty their coins into the robo-crab for collection at the end, freeing up grid space to possibly land more Coins. The Bomb bit might be of interest, too, so the feature isn't terrible, but not alladat, either.

To nutshell Big Bass Mission Fishin', it's basically Big Bass Splash with a streak respin mission bolted on. Like BB Splash, this one has the same 5,000x the stake win cap as a target to aim for. Technically, this is doable by hauling in a single 5,000x fish Money symbol. Good luck. By no means does Big Bass Mission Fishin' push the BB franchise way on down the evolutionary pathway, but hey ho, reason enough for fans to dust off their virtual rod and reel for another bash.

Fair

To nutshell Big Bass Mission Fishin’, it’s basically Big Bass Splash with a streak respin mission bolted on.
