Reel’em In Slot
Reel'em In is a fishing themed 5-reel max 20-pay line slot from WMS. This game is subtitled 'Big Bass Bucks' and owes its popularity to the number of bonus fishing features available to adventurous slots players. It's also a rendering of a real-world video slot created by WMS and available in casinos all over the world.
The symbols used in the game are all fishing-related as you might expect – a fishing hat, a float, a hook, a rod and a fishing tackle box. There's also a worm clinging onto a hook whom looks far too happy, given that he's probably about to be gobbled up by a piscean predator. There are fish too of course, including one sporting a very fine moustache.
To play this delightful-looking game (a series of colourful fish swim behind the reels as you play) you first select the number of lines you want in play from one to twenty, and your bet-per-line from 0.01 to 5.00 in 0.01 increments. If you want to, you can choose the 'QB' option and select from a number of pre-defined bets, which is easier than setting up lines and bet per line individually. Once you're ready to cast your line, hit the 'spin' button.
Payout & bonus rounds
The lowest winning payout is 5x your bet-per-line for three fishing hats or floats, or for two yellow or blue fish. The jackpot is 1,000x your line bet which is for five big pink and purple fish.
That big pink and purple fish also acts as the wild symbol in this slot. It substitutes for all other symbols aside from the Lure, Big Bass Hole Lure, Fishing Contest Lure and Big Bass symbols.
The 'Lure' symbol is also a scatter symbol and landing three or more anywhere on the reels will win a payout. You also win payouts by combining the Lure scatter with the Big Bass Lure or the Fishing Contest Lure symbols.
The 'Fly Fishing' feature occurs when a fly appears above the fifth reel and the Big Bass symbol appears anywhere on the fifth reel. You're awarded a payout that is between 5x and 10x your total wager.
If you land three Lures and the Big Bass symbol you trigger the Fishing Hole feature. Firstly, you select your fisherman who will reveal a number of casts. The playing screen is divided into six regions and you must cast your line into the water in one of the regions. You can catch fish, a boot, a treasure chest or the big bass. Depending upon your luck you could win pay outs, extra casts or coins.
If you land two or more Lures and the Fishing Contest Lure on reel five then you enter the Fishing Contest. You must compete with other anglers in order to catch the most fish. The more fish you catch, and the higher up the rankings you finish, the more cash you win.
Landing two or more Lures and the Big Bass Hole Lure on reel five awards you the 'Big Bass Fishing Hole' feature. This is similar to the Fishing Hole feature except that you can win extra big pay outs if your fishing expertise lands the Big Bass.
This is both a great-looking and a great-playing slot with plenty of entertaining sub games. This game has become one of the most popular slots that WMS have ever produced for real world casinos, so it's great that this slot is online too. Load up you hooks, cast your line and see if you can reel in some jackpots with Reel'em in!
