And now the friendly fisherman is here to help you land some fish and, hopefully, a chance to win potential prizes in his own Slingo game. Fishin' Frenzy-lovin' foxes will be glad to know the crossover was successful, and the developers have captured the whole vibe of the series in this great addition.
Gameplay is more like a slot than a Slingo, with reels on the grid spinning to land fish, and not a bingo number in site. But the aim of the game is the same, create complete lines across the grid to climb the pay ladder to the Frenzy Spins, where players have a chance at a really big catch.
The game is played on a 5x5 grid, with positions that spin to land fish or just bubbles. Payout start once five lines have been filled, and the prizes awarded can be seen on the pay ladder to the left of the grid.
Players set their stake and press spin. The initial bet buys five spins to create as many lines as possible. The reels spin and land fish or bubbles. Any fish that land turn gold and stick in place, and the aim is to complete lines of five fish vertically, horizontally, or diagonally across the grid.
Once the five initial spins are done, players can collect their winnings or choose to keep spinning with the Spin-Crease Chance, for a price. The cost of each spin depends on how many positions are left to fill and increases the closer the player gets to a full house. These spins can get very expensive, so if you choose this option, remember to keep an eye on the total bet for the game, which is displayed under the prize ladder, and your account balance, which you can see in the bottom right of the screen.
Everybody’s favourite fisherman will put in an appearance occasionally, casting his rod and pulling more fish onto the reels at the end of a spin, before turning into one himself.
The big catches start biting once a player has completed at least eight lines. This will get them one Frenzy Spin, nine lines award two Frenzy Spins, and ten lines give five. Any lucky fox who gets a full house will receive ten Frenzy Spins.
These are played out on a 5x5 grid as well. But here, the fish that land have cash values attached. At the end of every spin, these values are collected, and the reels spin again. At the end of the Frenzy Spins, all the cash values are added together and awarded to the player.
The Frenzy Spins are what it's all about in Fishin' Frenzy Prize Lines. Landing an entire grid of fish in this round will award the player the top prize of 10,000 x the stake. But it can be expensive to get to the Frenzy Spins, and there's no guarantee that you will win more than your total stake for the game, so always set a loss limit and stop playing when you've reached it.
