“The re-triggers and multipliers are what make Big Bass Bonanza such a fun game!”

Is the Big Bass Bonanza slot for you?

Big Bass Bonanza is one of the most popular online slots in Canada. Developed by Reel Kingdom and powered by Pragmatic Play, it’s a high volatility fishing-themed game that sports 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 paylines. It offers players a wide bet range, with the minimum bet starting at $0.10 and the Max bet at $100.

In the Big Bass Bonanza game, a bearded fisherman is on the hunt for a large catch and has dropped his lure into a vast lake. All the action takes place under the clear blue water. The spinning reels are vertically separated by bubbles and a “bloop” sound effect accompanies each reel as it lands. The music that plays is upbeat and has an island-music-meets-banjo vibe. The symbols on the reels are colourful and cartoon-like in design. The symbol images are also what you might expect from a fishing-themed game - fish, fishing rod, fishing tacklebox, and a bearded fisherman that serves as the game’s Wild symbol.

In terms of features, the Big Bass Bonanza slot machine has money symbols, which take a random value on every spin, anywhere from 2x up to 2,000x the total bet. Fish are also money symbols and can be collected by the Fisherman symbol during the Free Spins feature. During Free Spins, it’s also possible to level up and trigger more spins and increasing win multipliers. The game’s total max win is 2,100x the bet.

OJO fun fact: Did you know that Big Bass Bonanza is the first slot in the Big Bass series? Currently, there are 13 games and counting. While you can play any of those, OJO recommends getting your feet wet with the Big Bass Bonanza sequel, Bigger Bass Bonanza, first.

Not into fishing slots or slots in general? We’ve got lots of other games to enjoy, including premium table games like Playtech’s new Infinite Roulette.

Game features

Free Spins

This Pragmatic Play slot’s main feature is the Big Bass Bonanza Free Spins. This can be triggered by landing at least 3 Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels.

Landing 3 scatters awards 10 free spins, 4 will get you 15 spins, and 5 will score you 20. During the Free Spins feature, the fisherman (Wild) symbol is added to the reels. The fisherman replaces any regular symbols, increasing the chances of landing a winning combo. Additionally, if the fisherman lands at the same time as fish money symbols, he’ll collect each one of their prize values. Even better, if more than one fisherman lands on a spin, the fisherman symbols will each reel in the fish for a bigger money prize.

What makes the Pragmatic Big Bass Bonanza slot free spins feature particularly interesting is that when the fisherman lands on a spin, this symbol is collected and added to a meter that’s above the reels. For every 4 fisherman wild symbols collected, you get 10 extra free spins and an increased win multiplier. 10 free spins can be re-triggered up to 3 times, with each round increasing the win multiplier by 2x, 3x, and 10x, respectively.

The Big Bass Bonanza free spins feature is loads of fun. As landing multiple fisherman symbols boosts the amount you can win and there’s a chance to retrigger spins with increasing win multipliers, this feature is where you’ll have a shot at scoring the game’s biggest winning potential.

However, do keep in mind that unlike other high volatility Pragmatic slots, such as Madame Destiny Megaways, there is no “Buy Free Spins” feature in this game. The only way to trigger the free spins feature is to do so organically. Due to the nature of high volatility slots, it could take hundreds of spins before you trigger the feature.

As an example, during my Big Bass Bonanza slot Canada experience, I played 500 spins at $1.00 a spin. In total, I landed the free spins twice. The first was after 221 spins and the second occurred about 10 spins after the first time I triggered it.
