The Wild Catch slot game can be found at Microgaming casinos. Microgaming as a standard now publish the slots house edge information of all their games at any online casino that holds a UKGC license (this is a requirement for all UKGC licensed casinos). As such we can say that the House Edge of Wild Catch is 3.7%. When playing at any venue that does not hold a UKGC license and does not specifically publish the Return to Player information for their game, this information should be used as a guideline only as we cannot confirm whether or not this game is configurable.
Wild Catch is a 5 reel game that is 5 symbols high. The slot uses traditional paylines, with 50 in total, playing from left to right.
Theme – This slot has a sporting theme and, as the title suggests, that sport is fishing. Your symbols are all either people who are fishing or they are parts of the kit needed to fish.
Wild – The Wild symbol will substitute for all symbols except Scatters. They come super stacked on reels 2, 3 and 4, which means there is a chance that they could land and fill the reel.
Scatters – The “Gold Fish” is the game’s Scatter symbol, meaning it will pay out regardless of any paylines. The “Gold Fish” is the most valuable symbol in the game and it will trigger the Free Spins feature if you can land 3 or more of them on a single spin. Scatters are not available during the Free Spins or the Splashing Wild feature.
Rolling Reels – Each time you form a win the symbols involved will be removed and replaced with new symbols. Essentially this is a cascade or an avalanche type of feature and is present in both the base game and the Free Spins.
Splashing Wilds – This is a random feature and as such can happen at any point during the base game. When it does happen Wilds can appear on reels 2, 3 or 4, turning that reel completely Wild. Splashing Wilds is only available during the base game. The reel will remain in place for any subsequent Rolling Reels wins.
Free Spins – If you can land 3 “Gold Fish” symbols on the reels at once then you be given the choice of 3 different Free Spins options. During all the Free Spins options a Multiplier trail operates along with the Rolling Reels feature. What you get on that Multiplier Trail will vary depending on which option you choose, although not all of them are available initially.
Option 1 – 15 Free Spins with a starting multiplier of 1x the bet. Then an increase in the multiplier trail as follows: Roll 1 is 3x the bet, Roll 2 is 5x the bet, Roll 3 is 10x the bet and Roll 4 is 15x the bet. Wild Stack grows by 1 Wild symbol every spin.
Option 2 – 10 Free Spins with a starting multiplier of 2x the bet. Then an increase in the multiplier trail as follows: Roll 1 is 2x the bet, Roll 2 is 3x the bet, Roll 3 is 5x the bet and Roll 4 is 10x the bet. Wild Stack grows by 2 Wilds symbol every spin. This option only becomes available when you have triggered the Free Spins 5 times.
Option 3 – 5 Free Spins with a starting multiplier of 3x the bet. Then an increase in the multiplier trail as follows: Roll 1 is 5x the bet, Roll 2 is 10x the bet, Roll 3 is 15x the bet and Roll 4 is 25x the bet. Wild Stack grows by 3 Wilds symbol every spin. This option only becomes available when you have triggered the Free Spins 10 times.
Growing Wilds – This feature is only available during the Free Spins. During the Free Spins Wilds are stacked on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. Each Wild Stack will grown by 1 on every spin.
Jackpots – There are 3 different Jackpots available. They trigger at random but are more likely to trigger after you have landed multiple Wild symbols. There is a Bronze, Silver and a Gold Jackpot available, sitting at 10x, 100x or 2000x the bet, respectively.
