Big Bite: Slot Overview

Proving the saying 'there's plenty more fish in the sea' comes Push Gaming's oceanic online slot Big Bite. Of course, that saying is typically used as a metaphor to encourage people to get back into the dating game or something along those lines, but it is a rather apt way of describing the fishing slot genre, too. Simply because there are so many of them to choose from. However, few studios have such a stellar track record of making sea-borne slots as Push Gaming does, as evidenced by Razor Shark and Razor Returns. However, where those two games are pointy tooth behemoths of the deep, ready to strip flesh from the bone, Big Bite takes aim at a different segment of the gambling market, easing back the volatility while incorporating gameplay from certain famous fishing slot ranges.

Okay, it won't take long to clock the fact Big Bite shares many similarities with one of the biggest slots of this kind out there, Big Bass Bonanza and its buds. Not to mention Fishin' Frenzy, by extension. Might as well get that out of the way. But, Push being Push, the studio has stamped its personality all over Big Bite regardless. The setting in Big Bite, for one, is on the chillier side than usual, and the main character here is not a bass fish (#gasp) but something much larger and many may argue more majestic. That is, the mighty orca, or killer whale as they are also known, all streamlined black and white bodied, sporting a formidable set of gnashers. Interestingly, for their size, killer whales have just 40 to 56 teeth (according to Internet sources), which are designed for tearing and ripping, not for chewing. Instead, orcas apparently consume their food whole or in chunks.

Big Bite slot - base game

Fingers crossed that isn't a metaphor for how Big Bite is going to perform. Getting started involves picking a stake of 10 c to $/€100 and deciding whether or not to use the Push Bet. Activating the Push Bet increases the chance of winning the feature by 58%, increasing the stake by 20%, too. Unlike its Razor-y brethren, Big Bite is a low-medium volatile slot, with a default RTP of 96.33%, or 96.4% when using the Push Bet.

In the base game, Big Bite plays out on a 5-reel, 3-row gaming panel with 10 paylines. Ten regular pay symbols appear throughout, divided into 4 card suit lows, a boot, a bottle, and a compass mids, then 3 character symbol high pays. Landing a winning combination of 5 matching symbols pays 5x the bet for the lows, 35-50x for the mids, or 100-200x the bet for the high pays. The symbol with a boat on it is wild, and it appears on all reels. These boat wilds substitute all regular paying symbols and pay the same as the most valuable high-pay symbol if making winning wild lines.

Big Bite: Slot Features

Time to cast off to see what features we dredge in where the possibilities include Fish symbol prizes, Jackpot symbols, Orca symbols, free spins, and bonus buys.

Special Symbols

  • Fish symbols have instant prize values attached to them of 1x to 1,000x the bet and appear on reels 2, 3, and 4. Fish symbols are present in the base game and in free spins.
  • Jackpot symbols are present in the base game and free spins on the middle three reels. The Jackpot symbols are the Mini, Minor, Major, Mega, and Grand, worth 15x, 75x, 350x, 1,500x, and 10,000x the bet, respectively.
  • The Orca symbol is a collector symbol present on the leftmost and rightmost reels in both phases of the game. When an Orca symbol lands at the same time as Fish or Jackpot symbols, it collects all of their values except the Grand Jackpot. When Orca symbols land with multipliers attached, the multiplier value is applied to the collected value. In the base game, the possible multiplier values are x1, x2, x3, x5, or x10. When the Orca lands at the same time as the Grand Jackpot, the game's max win is awarded. If 2 Orca symbols land, they each collect any Fish or Jackpot symbols in view, applying multipliers if applicable.

Free Spins

Hitting 3, 4, or 5 scatters triggers 10 free spins with a starting Orca Multiplier of x1, x3, or x10 respectively. Free spins are played on an expanded 5x5 grid with 20 paylines. When Orca symbols land during the round, they are collected by the progression meter. When a new level is reached on the meter, extra free spins and an Orca symbol multiplier are awarded. The Orca Multiplier multiplies any instant prize value attached to Fish or Jackpot symbols except for the Grand.

  • Level 1 – awards +5 free spins and an x2 Orca Multiplier.
  • Level 2 – awards +5 free spins and an x3 Orca Multiplier.
  • Level 3 – awards +5 free spins and an x5 Orca Multiplier.
  • Level 4 – awards +5 free spins and an x10 Orca Multiplier.

Bonus Buy

At the bonus buy, players can get 10 free spins with an x1 (RTP 96.69%), x3 (RTP 96.81%), or x10 (RTP 96.77%) Orca Multiplier for 43x, 93x, or 212x the bet, respectively. Or, 75x the bet buys a random free spins trigger (RTP 96.74%).

Big Bite: Slot Verdict

It's interesting how big-time innovative heavy-height studios are finding 'inspiration' in slot ranges like Big Bass Bonanza and Fishin' Frenzy all these years later. What's even more interesting is seeing the different directions they take. Where the Nolimit City team stuck to the, let's say, irreverent attitude it's famous for when making Ugliest Catch, Push Gaming, by contrast, has gone more mainstream (even more so than Fish 'n' Nudge) for Big Bite, aiming it at a wide potential market, something the team did earlier with 10 Swords - incorporating popular gaming mechanics finished with a Push touch while aiming it at a mass audience.

Not to say Big Bite can't be enjoyed by roughnecks who favour the choppy surface of slots like Razor Shark. As noted, Push Gaming has stamped its personality on Big Bite, through the individual art style and ambient sounds. When it comes to gaming, Big Bite is less complicated than they can be from Push, but that could partly be because this style of play is so ubiquitously familiar - land Fish (or Jackpot) symbols at the same time as an Orca symbol and collect. It's as simple as that. Push Gaming has seen no reason to tamper hard with such a winning blueprint.

So, you're casting around the fish slot scene looking for modern Fishin' Frenzy action, why pick Big Bite? A few reasons. One is the top-tier production values we've come to expect from a studio like Push Gaming that regularly turns out slots at the higher end of the quality spectrum. Another is winning potential of 10,000x the bet, which is, again, on the higher end of the fish slot scale, not to mention bonus buyers may be tempted by the opportunity to buy their way straight to the x10 Orca Multiplier. Chuck everything in the chum bucket, and Big Bite might not be a paradigm shift in Fishin' Frenzy style gaming, but it's a top-notch option for a wide variety of players in the mood for this sort of thing.

Good

Mechanically, Big Bite sticks largely to safe waters but remains a strong option for players on the hunt for a modern Fishin’ Frenzy experience.
