Theme – Fishin’ for Gold has the obvious angling slant but it also has an icy arctic theme going on here as well. You get penguins, polar bears, walruses and angry, cold looking lions all trying to catch a bite in their respective ice holes.
Valuable Symbol – The game’s most valuable symbol is the “Polar Bear”.
Wild – Wild symbols are only available during Free Spins and when they land they will substitute for all symbols other than Scatters.
Scatters – The “Gold Fish” is the Scatter symbol. They only land on reels 2, 3 and 4 and when you get 3 of them you will trigger the Bonus feature. When you land 2 of them they are collected and added to the Bonus Meter, which will increase the win section by 1 space.
Bonus Meter – The Bonus Meter is a bell to the right side of the reels. If you click on it you can pay x1 the bet to try and trigger the Bonus feature. To begin with only 1 space out of 100 is green, which is the only spot you can win on. But each time you land 2 of the Gold Fish symbols you will increase the green section by 1 space. If you decide to spin the Bonus meter and win you will trigger the Bonus feature and the meter will reset to 1. If you lose, you can pay to spin again.
Bonus – If you trigger the Bonus feature you need to choose which character you want to fish for you. They will then bring in fish that will contain a number of Free Spins, or symbols for extra Wilds during the Free Spins. Some Wilds can come with a multiplier up to x5 the bet.
Free Spins – If you trigger the Free Spins then any of the symbols caught in the Bonus round are Wild and will show as Gold on the reels. They will substitute for all symbols other than the Gone Fishin’ Signs. 3 or more Gone Fishin’ Signs will gain you an additional 2 Free Spins.
