Inspired launches Cat C version of fishing-themed slot Big Fishing Fortune

B2B gaming content and solutions provider Inspired Entertainment has announced the release of its popular Big Fishing Fortune slot to the Cat C market. “It has everything the proven Big Fish Fortune B3 slot has, plus more,” says the company. Big Fishing Fortune is now available in retail. 

“From its fishing-themed game symbols to its innovative BIG Free Spins bonus mechanic where players can cast their hook to reel in big wins, this slot promises the same level of excitement as its predecessor – even more so with its new gamble feature,” Inspired describes the game and its content.

Players will need to reel in three or more bonus symbols to trigger the Big Fishing Fortune Bonus. During the bonus, players have unlimited free spins until the fisherman catches the Big Fish Value.

Before the bonus begins, players will be presented with 6, 9 or 12 identical titles depending on the number of bonus symbols used to trigger the feature; selecting these symbols one at a time will uncover a Big Fish Value, which can be up to 100x the stake.

Players should watch out for the fisherman and any fish landing in view during the bonus – the values shown on the fish will be paid and if more than one fisherman appears, each fish is awarded again for every extra fisherman in view offering players potentially lucrative cash pay-outs and a guaranteed Big Fish win, notes Inspired.

A new gamble feature has been added to the Cat C version of Big Fishing Fortune, giving players the option to gamble their winnings for cash or Free Spins. Upon choosing to gamble, two wheels will appear, each with a gamble ladder.

The left wheel can increase winnings by up to 10 times, while the right wheel can reward Free Spins. Players must select a wheel to spin and gamble. If the pointer lands on the green segment a cash prize or Free Spins will be awarded.

Big Fishing Fortune’s LBO/B3’s and online success was a catalyst for its conversion into a UK CAT C game, supporting Inspired’s omni-channel strategic approach in offering multi-faceted content to our retail customers,” says the company.

Inspired further describes Big Fishing Fortune as a “Big Bonus style game” that features the Free Spins mechanic, “proven through the millions of loyal players enjoying Big Bonus and Big Spin Bonus worldwide.”

“Big Fishing Fortune gives players an all-around fun and engaging gaming experience, whether online or in retail,” says the gaming provider, which highlighted that, in recent years, it has become known for its “BIG” retail and online games, which feature its high performing free-spins mechanics: Big Bonus, Big Spin Bonus, and Big Collector Bonus.

Richard Terry, UK Product Director, said: “We are excited at Inspired to launch Big Fishing Fortune into the Cat C sector. With its BIG mechanic having proved so popular in the B3 version across the AGC and LBO sectors, it’s now time for the Cat C game to take over the pond.”

Players will love the extra gamble function which gives them increased choice in accessing the Big Fishing Fortune Bonus.  We should have another Big Splash on our hands with this Cat C version!”

The release of Big Fishing Fortune Cat C follows the release of another fishing-themed slot earlier this month – Catch of the Day Reeling ‘Em In. With a reel configuration of 5×3 with 10 win lines, the game offers players “numerous ways to win.”
