Released in July, 2014, Fish Party is a Microgaming built video slot. It features slightly goofy looking fish that look like those you see in kid’s movies that look like they are either in an aquarium or the ocean. It is one of the many new 243 ways to win Microgaming slots that offer nice graphics, limited player choices and free spins. This new 243 ways engine that Microgaming is using for many of their new slot machines is interesting. It is also much easier to understand if you are like me and have trouble keeping track of all the lines on some machines. Here is how the 243 ways to win actually works. There are five reels and if a symbol appears on the first three reels, no matter where on the reel, you win. If it also appears on the fourth reel, you win more, and you win even more if it is also on the fifth reel.
Fish Party Slot Symbols
The symbols used for the Fish Party slot machine are the Fish Party logo, which is the two word title in front of one of those castles you can buy for your fish tank, a worm on a hook, a purple fish with big eyes, a smiling blue fish, a green fish with a big mouth, a treasure chest, a starfish, a clam, an orange and gold colored fish, and a tan and gold colored fish. The clam is the scatter symbol and the Fish Party logo acts as the wild card. The Fish Party logo wild symbol is stacked on the reels and automatically fills in for any other symbol with the exception of the scatter bonus clam symbol.
Fish Party Game Play
The clam scatter bonus symbols trigger the free spin rounds and also acts as a multiplier bonus. When you have at least three clam scatters you win free spins. Three scatter clams pay you two times your wager, four scatter clams pays 20 times your bet and five scatter clams pays 100 times your wager. During your free spin rounds, the four highest value symbols, the treasure chest, blue, yellow and purple fish are stacked on the reels offering a chance of higher pay outs. You can also win additional free spins while enjoying your free spins.
Other options include the auto play button and the “gamble” option after you win. The gamble button appears just above the spin button any time you win and gives you a chance to double or quadruple your win. You must pick a card color, which doubles your win if you are correct, or a card suit, which quadruples your win when you are correct. Of course if you are wrong you lose your winnings.
Your options for playing Fish Party are limited. The only real decision that needs made before playing is what size coin and how many to wager. You can bet one to ten coins and wager $0.01 as an opening coin size. The maximum is $1.00 or $30.00 per spin.
There is lots to enjoy about this slot, from the colorful fish that are featured, to its overall layout and vibe. The free spins when combined with the stacked symbols and wilds can really see the wins racked up.
