Take to the Sea to Enjoy this Fishing themed Pokie with an Original Free Spins Feature
Fishing has been a pastime enjoyed by many over the years, with nothing more relaxing than a day connecting with nature. Surprisingly perhaps, fishing has made the leap into the digital age, with many high selling games based around the popular hobby. Now a number of online pokies have been thrown into the mix and Let’s Go Fish’n is a fine example. On the reels you’ll find a particularly happy fisherman, as well as a way too happy worm on a hook. A seagull and a fishing rod / bucket combination also appear on the reels.
If you have ever played Aristocrat’s Where’s the Gold pokie – you will recognise the game-play here!
Why You Should Cast Your Rod and Give Let’s Go Fish’n a Spin
Let’s Go Fish’n is a very colourful and entertaining game, with the following array of features:
The ‘Let’s Go Fish’n’ logo acts as the games scatter symbol. Land 3, 4 or 5 scatters anywhere on the reels and you’ll win 50, 250 or 1,250 coins respectively (the latter prize being the highest in the entire game). Three or more scatters will also see you gain entry into the fishing feature.
You’ll now head to a second screen featuring a pier with five characters fishing. You’ll now choose one of the following five – Sunbabe Sally, Fishwife Fran, Lazy Larry, Sneaky Sam (who is actually a dog) and Lucky Lucy. Having chosen one of the five the fishing will start.
Below each of the characters is a black box which will start filling up with their ‘catches’. The standard fish appear on the left-hand side and every fish equates to a number of free spins. The characters can also make special ‘catches’ on the right hand, which are golden versions of the highest paying symbols in the game. Catch any of these and these golden symbols will replace the standard symbols, turning them wild throughout the free spins.
The free spins can be retriggered too. Land three or more scatter symbols and at the end of the current feature you’ll head back to the pier and make another selection.
Let’s Go Fish’n plays out on a 5×3 reel configuration with a set number of 25 win-lines. Each of the lines pay from left to right.
The highest paying symbol in the base game is the happy fisherman, who pays 1,000 coins for hitting the maximum five in a row. The seagull is next on the pay table and pays 500 coins for hitting five. The happy looking worm (if he knew why he was on the hook he might change his expression!) pays 300 coins, as does the symbol featuring the fishing road and a bucket.
Playing card symbols fill the lower end of the pay table, with Aces through to Jacks paying between 125 and 100 coins as a top prize.
Unusually, there is no wild symbol during the base game at all – the wilds appearing in the feature only.
If you want to pick the ideal day for fishing, this Aristocrat design has certainly delivered. The sky is a wonderful bright blue, with just a smattering of white cloud in the sky. The background scene is in a bay at the sea, an ideal spot for fishers to sit on rocks and enjoy their catches. The reels present a more humorous view of the hobby in a cartoon style, with both the fisherman and the worm looking delighted, while the seagull is a little more serious. The feature is a lot of fun too, with the ‘mixed’ array of characters including the fishing dog. The game is colourful throughout and is joined by an entertaining soundtrack.
Let’s Go Fish’n is an ideal slot if you fancy a distraction for a while, much like fishing itself. The game is a little unusual, as there is no wild symbol in the base game, but enter the fun feature and things become much more interesting. Choose your character and you’ll never know exactly how many spins or wilds they will catch, keeping variety high. Hopefully the worm will stay happy too!
