The recent surge in fishing slot games has seen titles like Fishin’ Frenzy lose their crown to newer games like Reel Kingdom’s Big Bass range and Yggdrasil’s Nice Catch DoubleMax. The latter offers a unique gameplay experience with its DoubleMax system, where players collect fish prize symbols on consecutive reels from left to right, using the Fisherman symbol to collect prizes that can result in substantial winnings.<br><br>However, this system can initially seem a little complicated. The game also includes a feature allowing players to increase their default multiplier during the bonus round, with potential winnings of 23,972.80x your stake, a figure that exceeds many similar games, but is no longer unheard of in the genre.<br><br>The game also includes a Golden Bet feature, which increases your chances of reaching the bonus round but also increases the cost per spin by 50%. The game’s premium symbols pay between 1 and 8 times your stake for five identical symbols, and players can also win cash fish prizes by landing the Fisherman symbol on reel 5.<br><br>The DoubleMax multiplier feature starts at x2 and can increase to x256 at most, depending on the fish symbols landed. Free spins can be won from landing three, four, or five scatter symbols on the same base game spin, and players can gamble for more spins.<br><br>However, this feature also carries the risk of losing the whole feature. The game also includes an option to purchase the bonus round, although this feature is not available in all jurisdictions. <br><br>Despite its unique features, it remains to be seen how well Nice Catch DoubleMax will fare in the competitive fishing slot genre. While testing the game, we found it enjoyable, but the DoubleMax system did appear somewhat clumsy and could be improved in future releases.
