Wild Catch Quick Facts

Who’d have ever thought that Microgaming would ever develop an online slot, where the primary theme would be about catching fish? Well, believe it or not.
Here it is! Wild Catch is exactly that. In the foreground is a boat, and the reels represent what lies underneath the water. The basic premise is that you are casting off; trying to obtain what would be some very welcome treasure from beneath the waves. Wild Catch is certainly original, when it comes to its theme.
Based on the adventurous life of fishing/angling, the theme of the game is fun and the thrill of catching a good fish will be the last thing on your mind when hitting one of the pretty massive wins available in this game.
The symbols on your reel will be therefore a Marlin, an Angler, a boat and more images under the same theme. Even though personally I find this unimaginative on Microgaming’s side, the standard symbols are as in most pokies, the 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.

How to play Wild Catch online
Wild Catch is one of Microgaming’s 243 ways to win slots, so players cannot set up their bet on a wager per line basis.
However, they can choose their coin values and the amount of coins that they wish to stake per spin. Coin values start out at just £0.01, and can go as high as £0.50 if they wish. Up to 10 coins per spin can be staked by the player. The cheapest stake available in the Wild Catch slot is just £0.30 per spin. The most expensive wager will set a player back a whopping £150 per spin.
The high playing card icons represent the lowest paying symbols in this slot game. For those icons, you can win anything from 25 coins up to 500 coins, which is pretty decent going!
The most profitable icons are the weight icon, the giant squid, the fishing trawler, and the golden trophy for landing the biggest catch. The trophy icon could see you land 5,000 coins, if you match 5 symbols on any payline.
The Wild Catch scatter
Wild Catch uses a fisherman (and a lifesaver) as a scatter symbol. When the scatter appears 3 times or more, you will trigger free games. The scatter icon is also responsible for the largest pay-outs in this online slot game.
Landing 3, 4 or 5 of the scatter icons anywhere on the reels, will trigger 10, 15 or 20 free spins, respectively. During the free games round, players can acquire multipliers of up to 10x, by winning with wild icons. The free spins round can be retriggered during the free games round.
The wild symbol
The blue marlin is the wild icon in this game. If the player lands 3 or more of the wilds, they will trigger 5 free games, with all wins multiplied by 3x.
During the wild feature free games round, an additional free spin is added for every wild found on the reels. The wild icon substitutes itself for every other icon in the game, barring the scatter symbol. It only appears though, on the second, third and fourth reels.
The Wild Catch jackpot
The largest win that a player can possible acquire is 7,500 coins. This is done by matching 5 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels.
The jackpot in the Wild Catch slot is a non-progressive one. Without the scatter icons, the player can still win 5,000 coins by matching up 5 of the golden trophy icons on a payline.
Other notes on Wild Catch
As far as theme goes, Microgaming’s Wild Catch is a pretty original title. Not many developers would be brave enough to create such a title, and make it a 243 ways to win feature.
It is also a very nice touch to have two ways to land free spin games. So, all summed up; what you have here is a slot that offers you two ways to trigger free spins, a pretty fair jackpot, and it can be played for moderately cheap stakes. What’s not to like about that?
