Design and Symbols
What kind of symbols would you expect from a slot game with this name? Definitely not sharks and sea lions. Quite fitting, the highest paying symbol in Golden Fish Tank is a yellow and green fish, followed by other coloured fish. The wild symbol is a big wooden tablet with the word “wild” written in gold. There is also a free spin scatter symbol represented by an orange fish behind a board with the words free spins written on it. The lower paying symbols make up a heart, spade, club and a diamond.
The special features in Golden Fish Tank include two related ones: a feature pick prior to the round of free spins. The items you pick in the bonus game come into play during the free spins round, so cross your fingers and hope for the best.
As in most other online slot games, to activate free spins, you need to land a number of scatter symbols on your reel. What sets Golden Fish Tank apart from the rest is that together with free spins, you get to choose a number of feature picks. The number of free spins and picks awarded depends on the number of scatters landed:
- 3 scatters = 6 free spins and 3 picks,
- 4 scatters = 8 free spins and 4 picks,
- 5 scatters = 10 free spins and 5 picks.
After landing three or more scatter symbols on your reel, you will be awarded a number of free spins as well as a number of feature picks. If you activated the golden bet feature before winning free spins, you will be awarded an extra feature pick. These picks are a random selection of 18 different seashells each hiding a different enhancement. These enhancements consist of :
- 2x multiplier on all wins
- one type of fish is stacked per spin
- one type of fish acts as a wild
- one or two wilds added to the reel set per spin
- one wild remains frozen in position for the duration of the spins
- 2 or 4 extra spins
- The highest paying fish acts as a wild
- 2nd, 3rd and 4th highest paying fish act as a wild
- Highest paying fish becomes stacked on the reels
- 2nd, 3rd and 4th highest paying fish becomes stacked on the reels
Once you select between these feature picks, they will be active throughout all of the free spins. Keep in mind that these form part of a bonus game, so you do not know the outcome of the shells that you pick.
