Time to head out to the great lakes of the north as you get your fishing rod ready to catch the wins this Wild Catch mobile slot.
There’s something about heading out to the great outdoors that makes for great mobile slot themes. Maybe because when you play mobile video slots we tend to be inside or on the way to work or on the toilet or watching TV, and it’s nice to see something green.
In the case of the Wild Catch slot, you have a 5×5 grid with cascading reels where every single win will explode and more will tumble from above.
Every symbol is unique; the high paying symbol is beautiful sceneries of a couple heading out for a camping adventure, whilst the low paying symbols are everything you need to go fishing; rids, lures, baskets, supplies. It’s very pretty.
The base game keeps you spinning because you have stacks of wilds. And then, out of nowhere, two random things might happen:
The problem with random features is that it’s hard to see them coming. And yet, the good news is that we’ve won that 10x your bet instant jackpot enough times to get that little flutter when the treasure chest opens up to wonder if it couldn’t be more.
And considering this Wild Catch slot is a 50 payline game, you need to get those stacked wilds to get anything close to 50x your bet, but that’s grid slots for you.
But here’s where things get annoying and why we gave this Wild Catch slot review 3 stars and not 4. Because you should be able to choose between three free spin bonuses when you get 3 scatters.
You’ll get to choose from 15 to 5 free spins, and depending on your choice, you’ll get multipliers on each avalanche spin. If you choose 15 free spins, the avalanche multipliers start from 1x all the way up to 10x on the fourth win, whilst with 5 free spins gives you a 3x multiplier straight away on all wins, and multipliers up to x25 by the fourth win.
It’s amazing, but to begin with, you only have the choice of the low variance and low multipliers. Games like the Ali baba slot lets you choose, whilst games like Wonder of Ages keeps you guessing what you’ll get.
Here, much like in fishing, you’ll need patience. You’ll have to trigger the free spins 5 times before you open up higher multipliers, and 10 times before you have a chance at the 25x multiplier and that top win.
And it’s not like you get anything different, just slightly bigger fish. And the big fish are you, you just have to be willing to go wading in this Wild Catch video slot.

Stacked Wild: The Wild Catch slot logo is the wild symbol and can be used to replace any other symbols in order to create wins. The wilds come stacked in the base game and the free spins.
Avalanching Win: Or rolling Reels as Microgaming call them. Winning symbols are removed to make way for new symbols to fall from above.
How to win the Jackpots: This can trigger any point once all the wins have settled. Wild symbols are collected after every spin and roll. The more wilds you collect, the higher your chance of triggering one of 3 jackpots.
Splashing Wild: The splashing wild feature can trigger randomly and turn any reel 2, 3 or 4 wild for a guaranteed win. The reel will stay will for all subsequent avalanching wins.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 or more scatter Gold Fish symbols will let you pick between one of 3 free spin bonus, but you have to unlock them.
You start with 15 free spins, after you've triggered the free spins 5 times you unlock 10 free spins, and after you've triggered 10 free spins, you unlock 5 free spins.
All free spins include a multiplier trail that increases with each avalanche. Equally stacks of wilds will be added to the reels which keep growing with each spin.
The free spins are played at the same level as the triggered bet amount.
There's some truly amazing wins in this Wild Catch slot on mobile. Add a beautiful natural setting that makes you wish you were off into the wild, and you can see why we gave this a 3-star slot review.
The reason we can't give it more is that we see no reason why we need to unlock the feature - unlike the infamous Immortal Romance slot, the wins are hard to get without the better features and there's no real story to follow.
All you get for your patience is the choice to play on a riskier free spin round, not a variety of features with similar results. We could have given it that extra star if it didn't take an hour to unlock them all.
But once you do, this Wild Catch slot machine will draw you in and make you seek out a few more real money spins to get that big wild catch. Or you can always check out other sports slots like Fishin Frenzy Megaways or Microgaming's Alaskan Fishing slot.
