The Basics of Wild Marlin Big Game Fishing™

This fishing safari video slot is a visual feast from the moment you load up the game. Choose your avatar to begin and cast your line into the clear blue waters. Gorgeous coral and colourful tropical fish swim across your screen as you bob along in your fishing boat, waiting for a bite.

On the left-hand side of your screen, held up by two buoys, is your bonus ladder. We’ll explain how it works a little later. Below that is a countdown bubble that counts 10 rounds of spins.

The middle of your screen is taken up by the reels themselves and you can locate the Play, Autoplay, Coin Size selection and Speed Play on the right.

Excellent Extras

This game comes packed with watery ways to win, and the game-makers have developed some wonderful features.

EpicStrike™ Feature: This unique add-on can help you win up to 100x your bet. Land 5 or more EpicStrike™ symbols to win cash prizes from the bonus ladder.

Bank’Em Wilds™: After an EpicStrike™ symbol lands during spins 1-9, a Bank’Em Wilds™ golden frame will be left behind. During the 10th spin, the frames will turn wild for a chance to win big.

Bonus Ladder: This follows on from the EpicStrike™ feature. Land multiple EpicStrike™ or Wild Symbols to climb the ladder. Depending on how many of these you land, you can earn up to 100x your stake size in cash!

  • 5 symbols award 1x bet.
  • 6 symbols award 3x bet.
  • 7 symbols award 10x bet.
  • 8 symbols award 25x bet.
  • 9+ symbols (yes, it can happen!) award 100x bet.

A Fab Free Spins Feature

The Free Spins Feature is triggered once you land 3 Free Spins symbols, which display as a massive pearl cushioned in its shell. These symbols appear on reels 1, 3 and 5. During the Free Spins feature, 4 Bank’Em Wilds™ are placed randomly on the reels. At the end of each spin, each golden frame will turn Wild, furthering your chances to make a winning combination.

Symbols in the Game

Online casino games consist of their symbols, features, graphics, sound, and gameplay. The symbols in this game are oceanic and engaging, and tie beautifully into the theme.

  • EpicStrike™ Symbol: Denoted by a golden coin with a fish and a line on it. Land these to win cash from the bonus ladder.
  • Wild Symbol: A Blue Marlin who pops out to eat the bait indicates the fun Wild symbol. This can substitute for all other symbols, barring Free Spins.
  • Free Spins Symbol: Is an image of a pearl embedded in its shell. Land 3 of these to trigger the feature.
  • High Symbols: These consist of the Captain’s Hat, Boat, Crab, Squid and Anchor.
  • Royal Symbols: These are made up of the traditional A, K, Q, J and 10.

The Game Makers

Microgaming (MGS) is a gaming provider that we’ve worked with for over 20 years. There’s a good reason for that – with 800+ sterling online pokies in their repertoire, MGS was a pioneer in the online casino world from the very beginning.

They continue to deliver top-notch entertainment to this day. If you’re an online pokies aficionado you can enjoy epic titles like 9 Masks of Fire, Wacky Panda™ and of course the ultimate progressive, Mega Moolah.

Founded in 2022, Infinity Dragon Studios (powered by MGS), has made their debut release in the fishing slot genre, and we’re here for it! We particularly enjoy the imaginative and unique features this group has come up with, as well as stunning graphics. We look forward to more of their creations showing up at JackpotCity online casino in NZ, and around the world.
