Catch Of The Day Review
Inspired Gaming has been playing around with the classic Fishin’ Frenzy concept for a while now, and Catch of the Day has borrowed some of the visuals, and not least the Fisherman, from their own Fishing Cash Pots. Only the fish symbols come with a transparent background this time though, while the opposite is the case in the predecessor. Inspired has decided to come full circle, it seems, as this is a pure Fishin' Frenzy clone job.
They’ve had great success with Big Fishing Fortune, which comes with an original bonus round twist or two, but this time you’re not in for any kind of surprises. The visuals are even more dated and simplistic than in the previous installments, and it’s all about reeling in cash fish prizes via the Fisherman Wild in the bonus round. The 95.05 % RTP is somewhat of a drawback though, not least compared to the source of inspiration.
Catch Of The Day Slot Features
You win regular payouts by landing 3 to 5 matching symbols from left to right on a payline, and the premium symbols pay between 20 and 200 x your stake for 5-oak wins. All the royals pay 10x your stake for the same, and the Fisherman Wild can only appear in the bonus round. The Cash Fish symbols serve as regular pay symbols as well, and all types pay 20x for 5 of a kind.
You need at least 3 scatter symbols anywhere in view to trigger the Bonus Round, and landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters gives you 10, 15 or 20 free spins, respectively. You cannot retrigger the feature or win extra spins, as there are no scatters in the bonus round. The Cash Fish come with values between 2x and 50x your stake, and you need the Fisherman Wild anywhere in view to collect all present fish prizes.
If you land more than one Fisherman Wild at the same time, with cash fish also present, all the cash fish prizes are collected as many times as there are fisherman wilds present. Also, if you land 2, 3, 4 or 5 Fisherman Wilds on the same payline, you win 1, 10, 50 or 500 x your stake, respectively.
Finally, there is a Gamble feature you can turn on/off as you see fit, and it allows you to gamble any winnings of 5x your stake or above. You can choose to gamble to win more money, or you can choose to gamble to win free spins. This is done on 2 different wheels with red and green segments, and landing on red means you lose your winnings.
The 200 Spins Catch Of The Day Slot Experience
We got plenty of bonus round teasers, and a few wins here and there, but triggering the reel ‘em bonus round wasn’t all that easy for us. When we finally landed a decent fish symbol payout, at 1:46 into the 3-minute highlights video, we gambled it to win 5 free spins. You can see for yourself how we fared in the reel ‘em round by hitting the play button below.
There is plenty of competition in the highly popular Fishin’ Frenzy copycat genre, and players who enjoy the ‘true to form’ dated and simple appearance will not be disappointed by the almost amateurish looking visuals on display in Inspired Gaming’s Catch Of The Day. The release seems kind of pointless however, as it offers nothing new compared to the original Reel Play classic. Perhaps Inspired ran out of inspiration or something, we don’t know.
Even the symbol values are identical to the original Fishin’ Frenzy, and a full screen of the top-tier Trophy symbol awards 2,000x your stake. The base game comes mostly with smaller top-up wins though, and everything revolves around the reel ‘em bonus round. The 95.05 % RTP is well below average, and also below the 96.12 % you get in the original game, so again, we would rather have another go at Reel Play’s iconic release than this rather uninspired copycat effort.
- Win up to 2,000x your stake in the base game
- Reel ‘em FS w/ Fisherman Wild collect symbol
- Free spins Cash Fish prizes up to 50x per fish
- Straight up Fishin’ Frenzy clone with lower RTP
If you enjoy Catch Of The Day Slot you should also try:
Fishin' Frenzy - is still going strong after all these years, and this Reel Play classic has remained one of the most popular slots ever made overall, not only in the fishing genre. It comes with charming, nostalgic physical slot machine audiovisuals, low to medium volatility, and a cozy reel ‘em bonus round that never seems to get old.
Big Fishing Fortune - is the smash hit fishing release from Inspired that probably gave them a taste for the genre. You’ll pick a random premium cash fish up front when the bonus round triggers, and you get indefinite free spins until the fisherman wild catches that specific fish. This means a payout is guaranteed from the feature, and you can win up to 2,500x your stake.
Fishing Cash Pots - is another Fishin’ Frenzy inspired release from Inspired Gaming, and the big twist in this installment is that the 5-spins bonus round comes with sticky cash fish. It’s a hold-and-win style feature in other words, but you need to land the fisherman wild on reel 5 to collect anything at all. Up to 3 fisherman wilds can land as collectors, and the overall max win is £250,000.
