Slot Description

One of the most recent releases (May 18 2022) by Big Time Gaming (BTG), the Golden Catch slot game, deserves to be called the most finished and successful releases in the fishing theme. I will remind my readers that in these category there has been new additions as of October 2022: Big Bass Bonanza Keep it Reel (Pragmatic Play) and Boat Bonanza (PlaynGo) as well as Fishin’ Frenzy The Big Catch Megaways (BluePrint). 

The Golden Catch game embodies all the right and proper things about a fishing slot machine: good structure of display, clear and understandable mechanics, old and new features, and, most importantly, the balance of all things. From my experience the fishing themes slots are made for the older audience of slot players, that is 60 and onwards. I can hardly imagine a successful slot in this category that does something new or complicated.

Golden Catch gameplay

Likewise, the Golden Catch slot has the above and underwater parts of the screen. The action goes both ways: the city view gives balance and the centre of perspective while sneaking boats will bring action too, because they bring in additional multipliers: they will multiply Fish Bonus Prizes by 10 (in the Free Spins game boat multipliers are unlimited). The ships would also drop anchors over the symbols and remove them while throwing in Fish Bonus Prizes.

The Fish Bonus Prize amounts are random, based on the number of visible symbols on the reel when it occurs:

Golden Catch gameplay

When playing in the dark, the lighthouse will rotate the lantern and you'd occasionally see the warm rays of light too. The ships make woohoo sounds. Importantly, the amination is very quick. Ships snooze real fast and the whole feel of the game is such that it would not waste your time too... 

The underwater worlds are very nice looking too, finished in green and blue. The 6x7 grid is easy to 'read' and follow. The low paying symbols are letters, while the higher ones are fish and wobblers, etc. The screen's backdrop is a shipwreck and some fish swimming right and left.  

Golden Catch Features

Max win is 31,430 tims of your bet. The RTP is 96.53%. Although declared as high, the game's volatility feels like medium, quite comfortable for this type of slot game. There are 117,649 ways to win (MegaWays). 

Cascading reels (wins) mechanics has been so much internalised by BTG that it even goes without saying in this slot release too. 

Interestingly, there is a Win Exchange™ feature where you can exchange a certain amount of winning for a chance to win a Free Spin Game. It is a kind of good old Gamble Feature started years ago by Novomatics, but it works surprisingly well here. Win Exchange™ will give additional dynamics and thrill to the game, while it is not something from the marketing world. I see this feature only as a way to bring in more thrill, not to make BTG more money.
If you have 100 times stake or more, you have the option to exchange 100 times your stake for 10 Free Spins right away. 

Golden Catch Bonus Game

Likewise, Bonus Buy™ tool will get you a Bonus game for 100x times your bet, i.e. €200 if you play at €2 bet per spin. 
Free Spins bonus game has 10 spins in the base part, but you have a chance of adding 2 for each Scatter beyond the third. Personally I have not gone beyond 10 spins, so I think it's rare. Well, the Free Spins game is more or less usual, except for you have some action from ships coming up above the water line: there can be up to 10 ships, each of which can get you an additional x1 multiplier. I have had 2 ships at most. 

Golden Catch Reviews

Golden Catch slot has received a good reception from the industry press for example bigwinboard.com, aboutslots.com and online-slot.co.uk, etc.

Likewise bigwinboard.com would comment that the game has:

    ... lively coastal atmosphere, a sublime twist on a regular slot mechanic, dependable stats, the return of the bonus buy which feels like a homecoming, and you've got a chunky seafood chowder of a game and one of BTG's more pleasantly playable releases of late.

Aboutslots.com concluded that: 

… Golden Catch is one of the best-looking fishing experiences we have seen, making 4 Fantastic Fish and the Fishin’ Frenzy games look outdated.

You might be looking at the score awarded here and thinking ‘9.6, for another fish game?', but that's exactly it – Golden Catch isn't just another fish game. The team at BTG have managed to take a concept which has been used time and time again – maybe even overused – and breathe new life back into it with a few tweaks.  ...
