Golden Catch Slot Game Background
Australia-based Big Time Gaming is the studio responsible for developing the classic Megaways game engine that took the iGaming industry by storm as no other proprietary mechanic has done. As such, BTG has developed some of the most popular Megaways slots in the business. This is borne out by classics like Bonanza Megaways and Apollo Pays Megaways. Like those slots, Golden Catch is a Megaways slot. Interestingly, however, the title doesn’t carry the Megaways moniker. However, Golden Catch comes with all the trimmings players expect of Megaways slots, including multiple ways to win alongside other exciting features and design mechanics.
Golden Catch Game Design
Golden Catch is a 6-reel online casino game with anywhere between 2 - 7 rows, depending on the on-screen action and the size of the symbols in view. The slot also offers the standard (for a Megaways slot) 117,649 paylines and a potential maximum payout of 31,430x the stake. Unlike most Megaways slots, Golden Catch doesn’t have the extra horizontal reel that normally sits above or below the main game grid in most Megaways slots.
The slot is set in the tranquil waters of a picturesque coast. The background shows a quaint village on the side of a hill, complete with a lighthouse and castle on the summit. The skies are blue but cloudy. Beneath the surface, we see shoals of fish swimming to and fro, while the wreck of a sunken ship adorns the sandy bottom. The reels comprise individual squares and contain ornate, gemstone-looking playing cards and different colored fish hook symbols. The title’s logo sits on the top right of the screen. Meanwhile, the Megaways counter is positioned in the center bottom of the game grid.
Finally, the music in Golden Catch is upbeat and uptempo. Low and subtle between spins, it roars to life when spinning the reels. Also present throughout play are audio cues that include seagull calls, boat motors, and even the sound of lapping waves alongside animation cues that trigger when landing certain combinations. It meshes flawlessly with the slot’s visual presentation.
Golden Catch Mobile
Golden Catch is fully optimized for desktop and mobile play. That means players can enjoy spinning the reels on PCs, tablets, and smartphones via mobile data or a stable internet connection. Players can also download the Lottomart app for the best experience possible.
Golden Catch Slot Symbols
The royal playing cards comprise the slot’s lowest-paying symbols, with the 9 and 10 paying out 0.25x the stake for 6-of-a-kind. The J and Q cards pay 0.4x the stake, while the K and A cards have the highest payouts of 0.5x the stake.
The green, blue, and red fish hooks comprise the slot’s mid-paying symbols with a payout of 0.6x, 0.8x, and 2x the stake. The purple fish hook is the game’s highest-paying symbol with a payout of 50x the stake for 6-of-a-kind.
Bonus symbols next, starting with the golden anchor Wild symbol. This substitutes for all other paying symbols except the Scatter. This symbol shows a golden coin with the game’s logo and plays a key part in activating the Free Spins feature.
Golden Catch Bonus Features
Golden Catch swims upstream with a slew of exciting bonuses and features!
Golden Catch has a unique take on the Cascading Reels feature (here called Reactions). All symbols in a winning combination form part of a reaction and are removed and replaced by new ones coming from above. So far so standard. However, a boat carrying a multiplier may appear above the water (above reels 2 - 5) on each reaction. After each reaction, any boat above reel 2 is removed and replaced by boats from the right.
One or more Fish Bonus prizes are shown once winning symbols that form part of a reaction are removed. These are awarded for each boat that appears above reels 2 - 5. In the base game, golden boats multiply Fish Bonus Prizes by 10x.
Free Spins Feature
Landing at least 3 Scatter symbols triggers the Free Spins bonus round and awards 10 spins. Any Scatters above the 3 required award 2 additional spins.
An unlimited boat multiplier is active during the bonus round. The first boat in view awards an x1 multiplier, the second a 2x multiplier, and so on. Fish Bonus Prizes are multiplied by all displayed boat multipliers.
A Free Spins Scatter symbol is also active during the bonus round. Every 3 Scatters in view awards 4 additional spins and any Scatters above the 3 required awards 2 additional spins.
Finally, players can exchange wins of 100x the stake for an additional 10 Free Spins. It’s also possible to exchange wins of between 25x - 100x the stake for 10 Free Spins. The chance of winning the gamble is displayed in the green segment of the Gamble Wheel. This is known as the Win Exchange feature.
The incorporation of the Megaways engine means that each reel can reveal a certain number of symbols in view. Landing consecutive symbols on all reels after a spin could lead to a maximum of 117,649 ways to win.
Golden Catch Slot Summary
Golden Catch is the fishing-themed slot that rises from the depths to provide a picturesque visual presentation of a seaside coastal village alongside exciting gameplay features (including the unique Boats and Fish Bonus features) and the increased payouts and ways to win that only the Megaways game engine can provide.
