Just the name alone indicates where Scuba Fishing is going to take us with the theme. This game, developed by RTG, is a video slot that also comes with a low to medium variance. But what else should a player expect when they decide to go ahead and give this game a go?
Overview of Scuba Fishing
The first thing you notice is that this game comes with a 3×3 reel setup rather than the more common 5×3. Also, it works on an all-ways pay option, and that equates to 27 different paylines.
The graphics are pretty cool, and everything is connected to fish, coral, and the scuba diver to the side of the reels. However, what else could they do with this theme? It also has a bonus feature while offering a non-progressive jackpot.
This game does come across as being inviting, and it’s tempting to have a go, but what else is in store?
How to Play Scuba Fishing
With a game as simple as this, playing it should also not pose a problem. Every line is constantly in play, and you are only required to change your bet size by clicking the plus or minus buttons next to the bet amount. After that, hit spin to see if you land a big catch.
Bonus Features for Scuba Fishing
For the bonus features, then we need to start by saying there are no free spins options, and that’s a disappointment. The only bonus feature this game offers is a re-spin, and that’s triggered when you land three of the shark wilds across the reels.
When you land the shark symbols, they then work as an expanding wild across the middle reel. Then, your chances of landing winning paylines are increased.
This lack of bonus features tends to be more common when we have a 3×3 reel setup, so while it’s not a surprise, it’s still something of a disappointment.
Betting and Payouts for Scuba Fishing
The non-progressive jackpot sits at 7500x your initial bet, and, in our opinion, this is the biggest draw for this game. The bet range starts as low as $0.20 and will reach as high as $100 per spin. While this isn’t the biggest maximum out there, it’s a reasonable bet when you consider the 3×3 reel setup. Also, the RTP is around the 96% mark, and that’s good enough for us to be tempted into spinning a few reels.
It does offer regular payouts that tend to be around 3x to 7x your initial bet. That’s enough to maintain interest without it blowing your mind with the bigger wins.
Scuba Fishing is the kind of slot game that promises a whole lot from a looks perspective, but then somehow falls a bit short in what it offers. The graphics and presentation are perfect, but the gameplay would have been far superior if they had incorporated other bonus features into the game. Due to this, it feels as if it’s lacking something. However, with a relatively high RTP, and a cool jackpot, then throwing some cash at it to see how your luck holds could be a good idea.
