It’s not easy to keep track of all the new games that are being released but it’s my honor to keep you updated. Clearly not all games are great or even worth playing but then there are some that really know the meaning of entertainment.
Pragmatic Play, Push Gaming and Quickfire, all have 3 hot new releases out on the market and I have put them to the test. Without saying too much, I can say that I never expected to go fishing, using a bazooka. I don’t expect you did either but yet, here we both are.
Want to take these bad boys for a spin? Let’s go!
1) Giga Jar – Push Gaming
If you feel like gettin’ jiggy with it, you can count on Push Gaming and Giga Jar to set the tone. The giant grid will provide you with all the fruit needed for fresh summer drinks and hot wins. BUT, in order for you to get your hands on the big bucks, you have some defrosting to do.
Meet Ice Breaker
One of the features is Ice Breaker which at random, a freezing cold wind will blow across the screen and remove 1-3 symbols from your grid.
Keep an Eye Out for Snowball
Don’t worry, you won’t get hit in the face with one but a Snowball can appear out of nowhere. When it hits, 1-2 giant symbols will show up on the grid and can reach a size of up to 4×4.
These new symbols can be either a regular symbol or an instant prize symbol of up to 1,000x!.
Fill Up the Jar Meter
On the left, you can see a couple of drinks that are frozen. This is called the Jar meter and is the main feature in this game. As soon as you hit 3 consecutive wins, you will fill up the first part. This will trigger a Wild Jar symbol to pop up on the grid, get you a multiplier and shift position after each spin.
When you have unleashed all 3 Wild Jars, the Giga Jar activation meter is ready to rock!
Take a Shot at Giga Jar
Games like Giga Jar are fun and if I’m being honest I often prefer grids and clusters over reels. So, if you’re in the mood for some lighthearted fun, visit Kryptosino or BitStarz and give Giga Jar a shot.
2) Chests of Gold Power Combo – Quickfire
Robin Hood stole from the rich and gave to the poor and in the new Chests of Gold Power Combo, you can win big and give to yourself! Even though Quickfire never mentions the Sherwood Forest or any member of the Merry Men, the amount of flying arrows hitting the bullseye is evidence enough.
There are 4 Jackpots lined up for you so find your way to the bonus round and grab at least one of them!
Paylines: 40 – 100
Bonus Buy Will Take You Straight to the Bonus Round
Before I show you the ropes in the bonus round, let me first tell you about the Bonus Buy feature. If you’re tired of waiting for the stars to align and whatever else you need to do to get Free Spins, Quickfire will give you as many as 7 options.
Nudging Wilds, Multipliers & Jackpots
These options will cost you between 20x to 110x your bet, which isn’t bad at all. In exchange you can get anything from Free Spins with Nudging Wilds to Free Spins with Nudging Wilds, Win Multiplier AND a Jackpot Collection!
Aim High With Your Free Spins
If you collect enough scatters, you will get your 10 Free Spins with all the extras. Once you’re in the bonus round, instead of scatters your focus should be on coins.
Each coin will either give you a cash prize of up to 10x but they can also give you a letter. The letters are there to spell out the Jackpots for you (on the left) and with 4 of Jackpots on the line, you’ll have the work cut out for you.
Should you be lucky enough to score a Jackpot, this is what you have to look forward to:
- Mini Jackpot – 25x
- Minor Jackpot – 50x
- Major Jackpot – 500x
- Grand Jackpot – 10,000x
A Jackpot Is a Jackpot
I managed to pull off a Mini Jackpot and despite the fact that it’s the smallest of them all, winning a Jackpot does come with at least some bragging rights, don’t you think?
3) Big Bass Bonanza: Hold & Spinner – Pragmatic Play
Believe it or not but fishing games are more popular than you think. There’s more than one reason for it and if you missed my article where I explained why, just click here and find out.
The Big Bass slot series are well known and this version might actually be the best one because of the double whammy features. I mean when was the last time you went fishing, using a bazooka?
Bazooka Free Spins
You should know there are both an Ante Bet and Bonus Buy feature to take advantage of but let’s go straight to the bazooka action and Free Spins. Landing scatters is of course your invitation to the show and if you can get 3, 4 or 5 of them, you will get 10, 15 or 20 Free Spins.
The bonus round consists of a lot of multipliers that will help you grab some nice wins but what caught my surprise was when the word B-A-Z-O-O-K-A appeared on the screen.
Do You Believe?
This can happen at random if there’s a Wild symbol but no Fish Money symbols. All of a sudden shots were fired and Fish Money symbols appeared in a few positions.
If I’d told you that you should expect a bazooka to be a part of the next version of the Big Bass Bonanza franchise, you would never believe me. And vice versa.
Hold & Spinner
Even if the Free Spin action mentioned above is a fun time, I honestly think that the Hold & Spinner feature is even better. You’ll have to score 3 Money symbols in order to trigger and it happened within my first 10 spins, which caught me a bit off guard.
4 Is Always More Than 3
In a classic Hold & Spin style, this is where you want to collect coins. Normally you’ll start off with 3 spins but Pragmatic Play has been extra generous here and you’ll get 4. Every time you land a coin the count will reset plus all the values are collected.
This is a great way of landing big wins and if you think I’m full of it, check out these possible multipliers:
- 2x, 5x, 10x, 15x, 20x, 25x, 50x, 100x, 200x
- 500x, 1,000x, 3,333x, 5,000x or 10,000x
Time to Hit the Lake
I’ve played a few Big Bass Bonanzas over the years and they always deliver. It’s something about fishing that gives you a different feel than other slots. If you have enjoyed the previous versions then you should really give this one a go. Row your boat and take it to the waters of Stake or Fairspin.io.
Be A Winner
Finding a new fun game makes playing more fun and with these 3, you can both win big AND have a lot of fun.
