Put on your wetsuit and grab your snorkel because we’re going back underwater in the latest edition of Casino Wars! These slots are two of our favourites and they might be yours too if you swim away with a winner… it’s Big Bass Splash vs Razor Returns! 

Having already compared Big Bass Bonanza with one of its sequels, we’re taking a closer look at another one in Pragmatic Play’s long line of fishing games. And joining it in the ring is a shark-themed sequel that certainly knows how to bite back. 

Both slots are available to play on mobile and desktop and, as ever, you’ll get money back on every spin, win or lose. We can’t wait to sink our teeth into this clash so before you take these super slots for a spin, we’re here to give you all the details. 

Let’s get ready to rumble! 

Big Bass Splash 

Ready to make a splash? Well, you’re in the right place! We all love Big Bass Bonanza and if you’ve not signed up yet, you’ll get 50 free spins with no wagering requirements on your first deposit. 

In fact, there are 15 slots in the Big Bass series on our site, including brand-new release Big Bass Day at the Races. But we’re here to talk about Big Bass Splash, which is a 5×3 slot with 10 paylines. The grids take us underwater and as you’d expect, the symbols are largely fish themed.

Look out for fishing rods, dragonflies, tackle boxes and the fish scatter. Plus, there’s a mega-truck which is the highest-paying symbol at 200x the stake. And there are plenty of winnings waiting to be paid out, with a top prize of up to 5,000x the stake up for grabs.

Big Bass Splash vs Razor Returns

Big Bass Splash bonus features 

The best things in life are free and just like Big Bass Bonanza before it, Big Bass Splash is all about the free spins mode. All you need to do is land scatters on the reels and you’ll be hooked up with as many as 20 free spins. 

Plus, if there are two scatters in view, they can be pulled onto the reels as well. During the free spins round you’ll be introduced to the fisherman, who acts as the wild symbol. He can appear on all reels and substitute for pay symbols to join up winning lines. 

If a wild lands at the same time as a fish, it’ll collect all of its cash value. And if that’s not enough, for every four wilds you collect, you’ll bag an extra 10 free spins as well as a multiplier up to x10. Splash-tastic!

Big Bass Splash vs Razor Returns

Razor Returns 

Big Bass Splash isn’t the only underwater sequel in this edition – we’re gonna need a bigger boat cos the sharks are back in town! Take a spin on the shark-infested reels in Razor Returns, the comeback for Push Gaming’s Razor Shark. 

With 40 paylines, this 5×5 slot certainly packs a punch with a max win of 100,000x your stake. Four ferocious looking sharks are waiting on the reels, alongside an anchor, a compass, a periscope and a diving helmet. Plus, keep an eye out for the wild shark symbol that can substitute for all regular symbols.

Razor Returns bonus features 

If the sharks from Razor Returns have scared you off, hold on! You might reconsider when you hear about the bonus features. Landing mystery symbols will trigger the Nudge & Reveal feature. This sees the mystery symbols open up to reveal pay symbols, wild shark or golden shark symbols. 

Unlocking a golden shark is your ticket to the Razor Reveal feature. As it spins, a special symbol will emerge that can boost your winnings in the form of instant prizes, multipliers, collectors, converters or nudge ups. 

It might also reveal a torpedo scatter – land three of these to trigger the free spins round and a multiplier. And if that’s not enough, there’s also a gamble feature that lets you risk your winnings for more prizes by spinning the wheel.

Big Bass Splash vs Razor Returns: The conclusion 

Well folks, there you have it! Two very different fishy adventures – but which is better? Big Bass Splash comes from a long line of popular, successful slots and pays out up to 5,000x the stake. 

Meanwhile, Razor Returns offers more prize money and bonus features. However, some players may feel the endless extras could make it a bit overcomplicated. Whatever style you prefer, you can discover both brilliant slots and more than 5,000 other games over at PlayOJO. It’s time to feel the fun!
