There’s a party going on, and whilst it takes a time to heat up, you might just end up swimming in cash.
Somewhere beyond the sea, somewhere waiting for me…is the Fish Party slot game.
A baffling idea for a slot machine, but Microgaming seem to be going ‘all out’ when it comes to quirkiness as of late.
Can’t really complain as it does mean that their video slots stand out from the crowd a little bit. That said, the fish kinda look terrifying.
Seriously. We know that this is a slot that is going for a bit of a cartoon-style approach, but there is something about fish staring at you with a human teeth-like grin which is remarkably off-putting.
Don’t get us wrong, it is evident that Microgaming studios have put a lot of effort into designing this game, but man, those fish don’t hit all the right buttons.
You must remember that Fish Party is going to be somewhat of a simplistic slot on the design front. This is because it was mostly designed for those who want to play on mobile phone slots.
This means there are no snappy animations. It is colourful, but despite coming out in June 2015 it feels a little basic.
We assume they do not move very fast, right? Well, anyway, Fish Party is a medium to high volatility slot machine. Wins are not going to come through fast. In fact, the features are not even going to come in that fast.
Why play it? Because, when the wins do come, they tend to be on the high. This makes up for the long, hard slog that you had to get through to get to this point. We feel as if it is worth it.
Of course, if you have a smaller bankroll, Fish Party may not be the ideal game for you because you will likely blow through it unless you are playing at a minimum bet of 0.30 a spin.
The theming of this Fish Party online slot is somewhat let down by the fact that none of the features really tie into the theme of the game. This means there is literally no point to the grinning fish.
In the base game, all of the wilds are stacked up to three high. They can appear on all reels. Despite this, you are never going to win huge sums of cash in the base game.
The wilds just do not seem to appear enough when you are playing on this five reels video slot. This is a shame because normally we get a huge smile on our faces whenever stacked wilds appear in other mobile games.
The free spins mode is somewhat of an oddity. You can trigger free spins by scoring yourself between 3 and 5 scatters. However, it is impossible to predict how many free spins you will get.
It is something which changes each time you activate the free spins (which you won’t be doing that often). It will never be more than twenty, but it is likely going to cap out at 10 – a little like the Golden Fish Tank slot.
Thankfully, the stacked wilds become a bit more useful now. They are stacked to seven. In addition to this, all the highest paying symbols in the game also come stacked.
This means that you should walk away with some sizeable wins if you activate the free spins game.
That’s tough. The theming doesn’t gel that well with us. The features are basic. However, there are huge wins on the table if you are good at bankroll management.
The maximum bet is only $15 a spin, which isn’t going to appeal to high limit slot players, but tells you that Microgaming know that they could end up paying huge.
As it is, playing on max bet, you could win $97,200 during the free games.
We understand why this won’t be for everyone, but if you enjoy slots with bonus games, Fish Party by Microgaming might just surprise you.
