Top Microgaming Gaming Casinos

Wild Catch, launched mid 2013, is a 5-reel fishing themed video slot from Microgaming. The slot benefits from wilds, multiplying free spins, a dedicated free spin bonus and a stupendously high number of pay lines

Wild Catch Theme

Wild Catch presents 5 reels in front of an expansive blue ocean. The slot is themed around sea fishing, which is why the reels give the impression you're on a boat. There's a few indicators on the reels too with icons including boats, swordfish, fisherman, fishing trophies, scales and colorful fishing lures.

As this is a traditional style slot, or pokie machine, you can expect to find a variety of classic icons. These include 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.

The sound-effects are rather underwhelming in comparison to other slots. They are rather generic, almost boring in fact. Their savings grace is that each spin of the reel sounds a little like a fishing reel, this is probably a coincidence but is a welcome factor all the same.

Betting Options and More Functions

Total bets (the amount gambled per spin) range from 0.30 to $150. This is pretty decent spread for a slot that offers up to 243 win-ways. As with other slots you can use either regular or automatic spins to play.

Wild Catch Slot Features

The smiling swordfish icon acts as a wild and will trigger 5 free games when three or more appear in any position. These free spins benefit from 3X multipliers and you will win an additional free spin for every wild icon that appears. These wilds can substitute for all symbols except the scattered fisherman.

Speaking of scatters, three or more of these boastful fisherman will also trigger a series of free spins. 3, 4 or 5 of these icons will award 10, 15 or 20 free spins respectively that begin with 1x multipliers (so a level playing field). Each wild win during these free spins will increase the multiplier by 1X, up to a maximum of 10X if you have 9 consecutive wild wins.

Our Take on Wild Catch

There's a surprising number of fishing themed video slots about at the moment. Wild Catch is certainly good enough to keep up with them in terms of features and we'd predict that the $7,500 jackpot will provide players incentive too. Try wild catch at any of the Microgaming powered casinos listed below.

    I have tried Wild Catch sometimes and it seems a very decent slot. It is a typical 243 ways from MICROGAMING and it has very nice free spin features if you get lucky to trigger them. The wild feature where you have 5 free spins with multiplier 3 and the free spins where the multiplier can go up to 10 times. I was lucky to win a 150 times my bet on this slot and it seems it can create really big wins.

    Wild Catch is another 243 win line slot from the Microgaming stable. I've seen this described as an 'Australian' style slot machine but, to be perfectly honest, it doesn't look too much different in terms of graphics and style to lots of other MG slots.The theme of the Wild Catch slot - as the name suggests - is angling. There is a Marlin symbol (which is wild), a scattered Angler symbol, a boat and more. Plus - unimaginatively - the 9,10, J, Q, K and A symbols.So, to the game itself. As with all 243 win line slots, you are, in effect, playing 30 lines. The wild symbol does hit fairly regularly in the base game, but typically - because you are playing 30 lines - the win sizes are pretty low.A quick look at the paytable reveals that the free spins rounds are the only real way of getting a big win. There are two free spins bonuses in Wild Catch - one triggered by the scattered Anglers and the other triggered by three wild Marlin symbols.The problem is neither of these bonus rounds appears very often. It took me 344 spins to get my first bonus (10 free spins) and over 2,500 spins, I only triggered the bonus 3 times. Not very impressive.It does look like you could win up to 50,000 coins on a single spin in the free spins round. But this would depend on getting Wild symbols on every free spin up to the last one (each win involving a wild symbol adds a multiplier to the next win involving a wild).Well, the maximum won was 40x bet size, which sounds OK-ish. However, by the time i'd hit the free spins,my bankroll was half.Being specific, it cost $200 to win $50. In other words,i lost $150!Frankly, Wild Catch just catches all your money and leaves you feeling wild.In fact, the similarity to other games actually puts me off. I take one look at a game like this and think 'I've seen this all before'. It's really time for Microgaming to freshen up the look of their games. They are starting to look tired.
