Our Verdict:

Playing the Big Bass Bonanza slot left me with mixed feelings. On the one hand, this is an excellent game with a solid bonus feature and an exciting combination of multiplier wilds and symbol collection. On the other hand, the base game can get boring with no modifiers or random features to spice things up. Whatever faults this game has, you can’t deny that the top possible prize of $525k makes you want to give it a spin. If you love slots that take you to the great outdoors, you should play 25,000 Talons today.

RTP and Variance

With an RTP of 96.57%, your chances of getting agood bet return are theoretically fair. The game has a medium variance, so you should have a more-or-less equal balance of winning and losing spins.

How to Play

To spin, use Autoplay, change your bet, or access the paytable and menu, you can use the controls below the reels. There are no extra game mechanics, so you only need to worry about landing three or more matching symbols on a payline to get winning combos.

Bonus Features

Free Spins

You must land 3, 4, or 5 scatter symbols to get 10, 15, or 20 free spins, respectively.

During free spins, the particular fisherman wild symbol can appear to substitute for all regular symbols and do another essential job. You will notice that fish symbols with cash values land throughout the game. When these symbols land on the same spin as the fisherman during free spins, he will collect all the prize values in view.

The Fishermen wild symbol reels in prize catches for you during free spins.

When they land, the fishermen's wilds will also be collected meters above the reels. Every four wilds you order will get you ten extra free spins and an added multiplier. The first trigger comes with a 2x, the second one rewards you with a 3x multiplier, and the fourth and final trigger will get you a 10x multiplier. There is also a chance that when a single Fisherman wild lands on a spin, a random number of fish symbols will appear. The collect feature is used in many ways in online slot games. For example, collecting special symbols rewards you with respins in Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx.

Free Play or Demo Play

It would be best if you didn’t go on a fishing trip without all the right gear, and you also probably shouldn’t attempt a new slot game without playing the free demo first. The Big Bass Bonanza demo has a generous starting balance of $100k in virtual credit. I played like a high-roller at first to see if spending big was a winning strategy, but I found out that keeping my bets in the medium-low range let me play longer with more wins over time.

My Big Bass Bonanza 25 Spins Experience

The game itself is exciting, and I enjoyed the value slot symbols.

I started this session by setting my bet amount to $4 per spin and immediately rolled three scatters, awarding me ten free spins. During the free spins, getting a big win of $88, which in slots to get a win early, is a massive advantage to how you play. I then set my bet amount to $2.70, hoping to hit the scatter again and gain some smaller wins. After a very close call with just that, unfortunately, I did not shoot. But I cruised through the remainder of the 25 spins to success for this session. The game has a simple and playful design that engages with nostalgia.

  • Ended on a profit.

The game itself is exciting, and I enjoyed the value slot symbols as they give the game a significant edge, mainly when you’ve managed to hit the free spins. There seems to be plenty of potential, although if you are looking for a modern, flashy, and upbeat slot, this probably isn’t the game for you.

Objective:25 spins to maximize my game time and entertainment value. To do this, I adjust my bet sizes/paylines to maximize my playing experience. If I hit any bonus features and walk away with more than I started, that’s a success.

Note:Because the results are always completely random, we use the demo simulation of the game, which mimics the real money experience. We always recommend you start in demo mode to learn and understand the game before you play for real money.
