jackpotpartySomething smelled a little fishy today, when Jackpot Party has announced today the launch of its new Reel ‘Em In Big Bass Bucks slot machine game. In what the company call a “Classic Vegas slot”, the game apparently has “more features than a Catfish has lives”. How many lives does a Catfish have again?

In Reel ‘Em In Big Bass Bucks, Jackpot Party have said that players will find a variety of ways to catch a win. The 20-line slot has four available features:

  • The Fly Fishin’ Feature, which randomly awards credits for the Big Bass on Reel.
  • An ability to land three or more Lure symbols to trigger the Fishing Hole Feature on any base spin.
  • The Big Bass Fishing Hole or Fishing Contest Feature rounds.
  • The Big Bass Fishing Hole Feature you’ll find the “catch of the day”, worth significantly higher credit values per fish.

The slot also features a “Fishing Contest” where players can try to reel in first place for the chance at the highest bonus reward. Jackpot Party have said you can also enter the Big Bass Fishing Hole or Fishing Contest Features directly from the base game by triggering the feature with one of two special Lure symbols on reel five.
