The premium symbols in Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways are worth a lot of money! We haven’t seen such high value symbols before at any Megaways slots. It’s somehow a little bit strange that the fish symbols aren’t worth that much. They have the least value of all! While the whole slot is about fishing. The payout values at Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways have to be multiplied by your stake size. The stork is the best symbol in this game. If you manage to connect 6 storks (1 on each reel) on a €/$/£ 1.00 bet, you will win a stunning €/$/£ 200.00! If you compare this with Mystery Spin Deluxe Megaways, you only win €/$/£ 10.00 when you manage to connect 6 premium symbols. The wild symbol, which is the fisherman, will substitute for all symbols. In the bonus game fishermen will help you catch fishes and thus will give you extra wins!
The base game at Fishin’ frenzy is very average compared to other Megaways slots. There are no cascading symbols, mystery symbols, and no random features. The only exciting part is that the symbols have a huge payout value. The chance that you might hit multiple premium symbols in the base game does make every spin an interesting one. However, it’s quite difficult to hit premium symbols on one of the winning lines. Perhaps the total amount of Megaways has something to do with it, which is also way below average compared to other Blueprint Megaways slots.

The bonus game in Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways is relatively easy to hit. You will need 3 fishing boats in order to trigger the bonus game. For each and every additional fishing boat, you will get extra spins to begin your bonus game with. If you hit 4 scatter symbols, you will win 15 free spins. If you hit 5 scatter symbols, you will win 25 free spins. If you hit 6 scatter symbols, you will win 50 free spins! In Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways it’s not impossible to hit 4 or more scatter symbols and thus kick off your bonus game with a decent amount of free games.
The fish symbols come with a price tag in the bonus game and thus can give you extra winnings. This price tag is called the catch of the day value. The bigger the fish, the bigger the price tag. The price tag varies from x2 to x50 the size of your bet. In order to catch the fish including the price tag, you would also need to hit a fishing man which is the wild symbol. The fishing man will make sure the fish doesn’t escape from the hook and will secure your extra winnings. If you manage to hit 2 fishing men, then your catch of the day will be multiplied by x2. If you’re very unlucky and you don’t manage to hit the bonus game, you can also choose to buy the bonus game. Buying the bonus game at Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways will cost you 100x the size of your bet. When you’re buying the bonus game, you will notice that you will quite often hit 4 scatter symbols or more.
Due to the latest changes in regulation the bonus buy feature isn’t available anymore in the UK.

The theme definitely makes Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways a fun slot to play. The whole idea of catching fishes is very amusing. Especially catching the bigger fishes, because they will give you a better profit! The base game is a little bit boring in our eyes, since the slot doesn’t come with many features which you would expect from a Megaways slot. The bonus game isn’t difficult to hit and kind of makes up to everything! When you manage to hit a good amount of free spins, you will hopefully catch a lot of big fishes.
The RTP of Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways is way too low to wager a bonus on. Even though it’s a medium variance slot, regular wins are rare. Since the slot doesn’t have a lot of Megaways and almost no special features, we would advise you to wager your bonus on a slot with a higher RTP. Netent usually has good wager slots.

On paper Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways is a slot which has a huge potential. Especially when you take the high value of the premium symbols in consideration. However, in practice it’s almost impossible to connect a lot of premium symbols. Does this take away the potential of Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways? Well, it does in the base game. The bonus game does have a decent potential. Mainly because of the fishes which come with a price tag in the bonus game. If you manage to hit a couple of big fishes who come with a x50 price tag, you’re quite easily able to hit a win of 200x or 300x your bet size. Wins like this are really nice, but quite difficult to get. You would at least need 4 or more fishing boats to start your bonus game with some more free spins.
Play with a bet size of 1% of your total balance. For example, if you deposit €/$/£ 100, then you shouldn’t play with bets higher than €/$/£ 1.
The bonus game is relatively easy to hit. However, if you’re unable to hit, don’t chase it!
Don’t play Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways when you’re wagering a bonus or when you’re seeking for that big win.
The bonus game is very fun to play, but don’t let that make you buy the bonus feature. The bonus feature is expensive and usually won’t pay you back your investment.
It’s definitely a fun slot and should be played now and then. You never know when the fish bite!
