Catch of The Day
Fortune Games® Slots Review of Catch of The Day Slot Game
With Catch of the Day, you'll be immersed in a highly fishy underwater world as you spin the five reels. The 10 paylines have been enhanced by Inspired Gaming to make the slot even more exciting. If you are lucky, you won't just catch fish, but you'll also trigger some bonus features, such as free spins and a gamble/risk game.
Soundtrack, graphics, and theme
There has to be fish in this slot with a name like “Catch of the Day”. It’s not the coast or a boat, you’re swimming with fish at the bottom of the ocean. There are bubbles floating by in a blurry blue world where you can just about make out the painted coral and seaweed, but the bubbles are clear as well. Before spinning, you hear bubbles and waves before a merry tune starts playing. Fish themselves swim on the reels (transparent to show the sea for the fish, solid blue for other symbols), as do fishing hooks, as well as other important equipment like a life ring. Fans of the Fishin Frenzy slot might be interested in the soggy algae-filled boot that appeared to have fallen off a fisherman's foot.
RTP and variance for Catch Of The Day
You can’t control where the reels land or how much you win, but you can set reasonable expectations and make sensible budget decisions. You can do that much easier if you know about Catch of the Day’s average returns. It may disappoint you to find that it’s 95.05%, which may sound low, but it doesn’t mean you won’t find bigger wins. Since there doesn’t appear to be an official variance figure, it can be difficult to assess win frequency.
Catch Of The Day: How To Play
Ready to cast your line?
Set your bet by pressing the up and down arrows on the left of the reels. Alternatively, click the bet options to open them all. If you're unsure of the appropriate amount, check your total balance at the bottom of the screen to determine how much you can afford to bet.
On the menu just below the bet adjustor, there are six items: game info, game history, sound, left-hand play, turbo, and go to lobby.
Besides the game info, game history provides realism by showing bets, wins, and losses. Sound, left-hand play, and turbo can be turned off or on.
Look right when you get back to the main screen. The gamble bonus feature is optional, and it can be activated by pressing the button.
In order to get into good habits, we recommend setting limits in free play slots, just like you would in real money games. Be sure to take breaks while playing.
Play responsibly. When the fun stops, stop.
Sizes of bets and wins
Upon opening the bet adjustor, a reasonable but not remarkable range of bets can be found between 0.10 and 30.00.
A minimum wager will result in the following maximums when matching regular symbols three, four, or five times from left to right, except for the trophy symbol, which pays from two matches.
-10, J, Q, K, A - 1.00
-Hook, Boot - 5.00
-Life ring - 10.00
-Trophy - 20.00
You can mix and match the fish symbols and still have a winning line. Five mixed pays = 2.00 for a minimum wager.
Bonus Features For Catch Of The Day
It's a gamble
Using gamble, you have three options. You can turn it off completely, set it to activate after any winning spin, or set it to activate only if your winnings are five times your bet or higher.
A gamble option allows you to add a third to or double or triple your prize. A second wheel offers you up to 20 free spins. If the pointer lands on green, you win; if it lands on red, you lose.
Spins for free
-3 scatters = 10 free spins
-4 scatters = 15 free spins
-5 scatters = 20 free spins
Wild symbols will only appear on all reels during the bonus round. Matching five wild symbols on a minimum bet will pay out 50.00. Fish symbols pay between 0.20 and 5.00, with bigger fish paying more.
The Catch Of The Day
Despite its appealing graphics, Catch of the Day does not stand out from other ocean-themed slots. If you prefer your slots set underwater, you won't have any trouble. The free spins are always nice, but the gamble feature is particularly appealing, as it has a distinctive format that is quite different from the traditional game of flipping a card. It might “inspire” you to play more demo slots from Inspired Gaming.
