Reel in the big one with Wild Catch online slot by Microgaming and Stormcraft Studios. This fishing themed slot places you in the beautiful countryside amongst towering mountains, crystal lakes, and rushing streams. The game’s symbols feature fishing tackle and fishermen and fisherwomen having the time of their lives out on the water. The base mechanic is the cascading reels feature where winning combinations vanish to make space for new ones to potentially trigger a chain of wins. The bonus features include free spins, multipliers, stacked wilds, and a jackpot.  

Game Symbols

  • The lower value symbols are 2 different fishing lures, a fishing reel, and a tackle basket.
  • The higher value symbols are 5 different depictions of fishing enthusiasts casting their lines and displaying their catches.
  • The scatter symbol is a gold-hued fish leaping out of water and activates free spins.
  • The game logo is the wild symbol and stands in for any other symbol except the scatter. 

Bonus Features

Free Spins

If 3, 4 or 5 scatters appear on the reels, the free spins feature will activate. You have your choice of 3 free spins options which all come bundled with a multiplier trail and a Growing Wilds feature where wild stacks can increase with each spin.

  • The low volatility Crystal Lake option has a maximum potential of 3600x your stake and comes with 15 free spins and a multiplier trail of 1x, 2x, 3x, 5x, and 10x your stake. Wild stacks will increase by 1 symbol a spin.
  • You need to have activated free spins 5 times to choose the medium volatility Emerald Creek option that comes with 10 free spins and a multiplier trail of 2x, 3x, 5x, 10x and 15x. The maximum potential payout is 5400x your bet and wild stacks will increase by 2 symbols per spin.
  • Once you have activated free spins 10 times, you will have access to Golden Rapids that offers the highest volatility, paying a maximum of 9000x your stake. This option gives you 5 free spins, a multiplier trail of 3x, 5x, 10x and 25x your bet and wild stacks that increase by 3 symbols a spin.

Splashing wilds

This is a random feature where 5 symbol super-stacks can appear on reels 2, 3, or 4. The stack will remain in place after your spin and for any following cascading wins.

Jackpot feature

A Jackpot indicator sits to the left of the reels displaying bronze, silver, and gold jackpots that are worth 10x, 100x, and 2000x your stake. This feature can trigger randomly once your spin and all following cascade wins have been tallied and the jackpot you get depends in large part on how many wilds formed part of your winning combinations.

Our Verdict

Wild catch slot is a feature-rich title with plenty of decent potential to keep you engrossed. The fishing theme of this slot may seem like an odd choice at first, but the graphics and game animations are well crafted and pleasant to look at so even if you’re not a fishing enthusiast, you’ll be able to appreciate this slot from an aesthetic perspective. The features are what make this a great game Microgaming has chosen well to combine their rolling reels with wild stacks which ensure that the pacing of the base game remains high throughout. 

The jackpot is another great feature that breaks any remaining sense of monotony as you spin. Activating the most volatile free spins option and maxing out the multiplier trail is what will get you to the 9000x maximum slot potential so there is a lot to play for and a lot of reasons to keep playing.
