Bigger Bass Blizzard: Christmas Catch’s Exciting New Features

emucasino-bigger-bass-blizzard-christmas-catch-logoThose familiar with the Big Bass slot series will find that the base game of Bigger Bass Blizzard: Christmas Catch is comfortingly alike when put side by side with the previous instalments.

Similarly, once players start reeling in Scatter symbols, they will be delighted by the familiar wave of excitement these symbols bring with them.

emucasino-bigger-bass-blizzard-christmas-catch-scatter-symbolJust like in previous iterations, landing a minimum of three Scatter symbols will activate the game’s bonus round. Even if only two Scatter symbols appear, there is a chance that a hook will appear and reel in the third Scatter symbol needed to kick-start the bonus round fun.

Different amounts of free spins will be awarded based on the number of Scatter symbols that land as per below:

  • 3 Scatter symbols: 10 free spins
  • 4 Scatter symbols: 15 free spins
  • 5 Scatter symbols: 20 free spins


During the bonus round, the Big Bass meter feature – an element many fans will already be familiar with – will appear. Fisherman Wilds that can appear on any of the reels during the bonus round will be collected in the meter and can trigger special bonuses for every four collected as per below:

  • 4 Wild symbols: Additional 10 free spins and a x2 cash fish prize multiplier
  • 8 Wild symbols: Additional 10 free spins and a x3 cash fish prize multiplier
  • 12 Wild symbols: Additional 10 free spins and a x10 cash fish prize multiplier

After the third stage is reached, no more bonuses will be given regardless of how many more Wild symbols appear on the reels.

When there are only one or two Wild symbols on the screen at the end of a free spin round, cash fish prize symbols may be reeled in and replace symbols in randomly selected positions.

Additionally, one or two hooks may pull up a random reel after a free spin to reveal Wild or cash fish prize symbols.

emucasino-bigger-bass-blizzard-christmas-catch-ante-bet-featureThose keen to play the bonus round can increase their chances of activating it using the game’s Ante Bet feature. This will increase the chances of Scatter symbols landing on the reels.

It will cost 18x the player’s bet per line to activate this feature and this will affect every spin until the Ante Bet feature is switched off.

emucasino-bigger-bass-blizzard-christmas-catch-buy-free-spins-featureShould players want to skip trying their luck and go straight to the bonus round, they can see if the option of using the game’s Buy Bonus feature is available to them.

If it is, the feature will cost 100x their current selected bet value to activate.

Once the purchase has been confirmed, the given amount will be subtracted from the player’s available balance and a spin will begin. Only three Scatter symbols will land on the reels but they will be enough to trigger the lowest level of the bonus round.
