Winter is coming to Big Bass Bonanza as the cold winds blow fresh air to the beloved franchise. Big Bass Blizzard presents everything players adored about the classic ongoing Pragmatic Play success while keeping the core fish/money symbol collector that never ceases to entertain. Join the wild ride to the tundra for a chance to catch the big prize of 4,000x the bet!
Betting Options and Bonus Features
Put on your winter coat! Big Bass Blizzard takes players from the humid tropical paradise to the frozen blue lakes. On top of the snowy landscape is the 5x4 grid with 12 fixed paylines. The game comes packed with tools players but the tackle box is the crucial gadget as it pays 50x the bet for five of a kind.
Players will find the game familiar to its predecessor, Big Bass Bonanza, though with a few twists to the RTP, which sees a slight drop from 96.71% to 96.08%. Big Bass Blizzard might be a challenge with a very high volatility level but it is more in line with the massive reward of 4,000x the bet just waiting around the corner.
Big Bass Blizzard does not deviate far from the original game, although this might be to satisfy the loyal fans of the series. With 3, 4, or 5 Scatters on the grid, players can access the Bonus Round, where they receive 10, 15, or 20 Free Spins. Moreover, whenever players only hit 2 Scatters, there is a random chance that a hook will appear and reel in the last needed Scatter.
Wilds only appear in the Bonus Game and participate in winnings, substituting for any symbol except for Scatters. Whenever a Wild appears, it will collect all the fish symbols on the screen. Should more than one appear, the Wilds will carry out their duty individually, effectively doubling, tripling, etc., the reward.
Big Bass Blizzard collects Wilds on a bar on top of the screen. The first four give players 10 Free Spins and change the multiplier to 2x. Getting four more wilds and the game rewards players with another 10 Free Spins and increases the multiplier to 3x. The final upgrade allows players to have extra 10 Free Spins and increases the multiplier to 10x the bet. These multipliers only apply to collected symbols.
Another detail to notice during the Bonus Round is that the game will randomly add fish symbols to the grid whenever there are 1 or 2 Wild symbols. Similarly, 1 or 2 hooks can appear randomly to reel in Wilds or Fish Money symbols. Players can also exchange 100x the bet for a random chance of receiving 3, 4, or 5 Scatters on the screen.
I have to say this is an amazing sequel with a great gameplay update even though I miss the dynamite from the previous games. Having progressive multipliers and numerous free spins options, Big Bass Blizzard is already a perfect game and has no need to change. Overall, it is a favorite of mine that I can’t wait to dive in again.
