- A welcome new variation on the popular Fishin Frenzy slot
- More ways to win and the ability to buy the Bonus
- Potential to win 10,000x your stake but only bet £10 maximum
Fishin Frenzy Megaways slot is a new game from Blueprint that will come as a welcome new title for many. That’s because it is, in many ways, very similar to the original which was very popular. With a simple but calming theme and basic gameplay, it’s easy to see why people liked it, and this one keeps all of that, instead only increasing the number of ways to win and the variance, offering up to 10,000x your stake.

Now you have 6 reels instead of 5, giving you 15,625 ways to win, and an RTP of 96.1%. You need to get a win from left to right using the base symbols which are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- 10, Jack or Queen (lowest value)
- King or Ace
- Buoyancy Aid or Tackle
- Fishing Rod
- Pelican (highest value)
These base symbols just pay out along a way to win, giving you a cash reward. However, there are also fish symbols which pay in any positions if they appear on the screen. Finally, there’s the Scatter symbol shown as a boat used to trigger the Free Spins Bonus, and the fisherman himself who has an important role in the Bonus as we’ll soon see.
Fishin Frenzy Megaways Slot Bonuses and Features
Free Spins Bonus. This is pretty much the only reason you’ll be playing Fishin Frenzy Megaways slot. You need at least 3 Scatter symbols to trigger the Bonus which will give you 10 free spins. Land 4 of theme and you’ll get 15 free spins though, with 5 giving you 25 and 6 giving you an impressive 50 free spins. As I mentioned, the fisherman plays an important role here because not only does he substitute for all other symbols in a winning combination as a Wild, but he is used to catch all of the fish for additional wins. Each Wild collects the prize values from every fish on the screen which is determined by the figure on their tag. This figure can be up to 50x your stake so you can see the potential here. While you only need 1 Wild to do this, any extra Wild symbols will increase your multiplier by a factor of 1x, with a total of 5 being available on the screen at any one time. Doing a little bit of maths, you can win up to 10,000x your stake like this.
Buy A Bonus. You’ll notice on the left-hand side of the reels an option where you can buy the Free Spins Bonus for 100x your stake. What this means if you can skip the general gameplay and go straight into the Bonus, a feature that’s common on Megaways slots but can get very expensive. Whether you decide to use it or not is entirely up to you.
Fishin Frenzy Megaways slot from Blueprint Gaming is in many ways very similar to the original. The design is basically equal, with no changes being made to the graphics or characters but I’m OK with that. The original was very popular and still is, so change isn’t always necessary. The only 2 differences here are the extra reel to increase the number of ways to win and the fact that you can buy the Free Spins Bonus which now offers some massive payouts. One thing that some people may or may not like is that the maximum bet is capped at just £10 which is quite low, but when you consider the fact that you can still win £100,000 like this and it’s a high variance slot anyway, £10 should be more than enough for more. All in all, I think this is a good game that will suit those who like high variance slots and the original Fishin Frenzy. You can find some of Blueprint’s other slots here too.
