Christmas Big Bass Bonanza Slot
In recent times, Pragmatic play has pumped out some unique titles that broke the internet! However, the Christmas Big Bass Bonanza slot is not one of them. It’s a regular 5-reel video slot with 3 rows and 10 paylines.
All 10 paylines are fixed so you can’t change the number of active betways. Instead, you can change your coin per line and coin value. Of course, the hardcore Pragmatic Play fans would know all about it.
According to Pragmatic, Christmas Big Bass Bonanza slot is a high volatility game. It means the payouts will not be as frequent as medium or low volatility online slots. However, you’ll get bigger payouts when you land an appropriate combination.
Although it’s a high volatility slot, the bet value range is quite shallow. You can only place bets ranging between C$0.10 and C$10. Interestingly, the maximum winning potential for this game is C$250,000. That too without any in-game jackpots.
How is that possible you ask? Well, you must bear with OJO as he explains the symbols of the game in a later section!
Theme & Sound Design
You will definitely feel the presence of the original Big Bass Bonanza game. It takes place underwater, after all. However, it does feel a little weird to see Santa’s sleigh flying away when there are seahorses and other marine creatures present.
At the far end of the backdrop, you’ll see glaciers. The bubble rising at a steady pace from the bottom of the sea is quite a scene to comprehend. Among all of this magnificence, you see the grid where the symbols land.
To top off the theme with proper Christmas spirit, the royal symbols have snow accumulation on them. The random fish symbols that appear are also dug out by breaking the ice. You can clearly see it when they appear.
Overall, Pragmatic Play has done a fantastic job of including all graphical elements that capture the essence of the original game and the Christmas spirit. Needless to say, the sound design of the Christmas Big Bass Bonanza slot is Christmas inspired as well.
Of course, the symbols. Or, as OJO would like to point out, the slot features. There are plenty of them in the Christmas Big Bass Bonanza slot. You can expect all standard symbols like the wild, the scatter, high paying symbols, and royals.
First up, we have the Christmas decoration. It pays a whopping $400 in coins if you land 5 of them on a payline. The actual payout will depend on what coin value you’ve selected. In fact, it applies to all the symbols in the game.
Right after the first high paying symbol comes the fishing reel. A game about Big Bass can’t go without a fishing reel, can it? It pays C$200 for 5 on a payline. The next two high paying symbols are the sleigh and the suitcase. Both of them pay C$100 for 5 on a payline. The last of this bunch would be the money symbol, landing 5 on a payline will give you C$40 in coins.
All royal symbols in the game, meaning the A, K, Q, J, and 10 pay equally. For 5 on a payline, you can get C$20. For 4 on a payline, it’s C$5. Last but not least, if you get 3 royals on a payline, you get a C$1 payout.
Lastly, we have the wild and the scatter. The wild symbol is, you guessed it, the Santa! And the scatter is a big bass with a Christmas hat. The wild can replace all symbols except for the scatters to form a payline. Moreover, it can collect the money symbols during the bonus round.
So, the bonus round in the Christmas Big Bass Bonanza slot triggers when you have at least 3 scatter symbols on a payline. It’ll trigger the free spins round automatically. In fact, the free spins will keep on going automatically as well.
For 3 scatters, you get 10 free spins. For 4 and 5 scatters at once, you get 15 and 20 free spins respectively. During these spins, the Bass symbols become Money symbols. When a wild and a money symbol is present on the reels at the same time, the wild can catch them. It’ll be added to your final payout.
Also, if you collect 4 wild symbols, you get 10 additional free spins and a 2x multiplier. The multiplier can go up to 3x and 10x for the next two retriggers. All winnings will be calculated after the round is over.
