Being a fish is better than being a president of the United States, especially if you are one of the good fishes from the Revolver Gaming’s 2018 video slot. The selection and interpretation of the theme are in line with some of the developer’s earlier releases, and Revolver is known for taking a popular franchise and giving it a little twist, “Multiplier Man” and “Parrots of the Caribbean” being some of the most obvious parodies.
GoodFishes is directly inspired by one of the most iconic crime movies released in 1990 and a lot of you have already caught on the Scorsese’s Goodfellas reference in the slot’s title. Even the symbols are modeled against the actual movie characters and you will easily recognize De Niro’s James Conwey (that mole is a dead giveaway), Liotta’s Henry Hill and Pesci’s Tommy DeVitto.
If you still haven’t seen the movie, drop everything you are doing and do it immediately. Only then will you be able to fully appreciate the concept of the slot, not to mention the bonus features and the multipliers.
Plenty of Fish in the Sea…
GoodFishes has 5 reels, 4 rows, and 30 fixed paylines, offering a betting range of 0.30 to $150. The return to the player percentage is 96% and the volatility is between medium and high. Looking at the stake and the variance, it is easy to spot that the developer is inclining towards the high rollers, although a decent hit frequency will make the slot suitable even for those who are on a budget.
Using the Auto Play option, the players can activate up to 100 auto sessions and set up the stopping point. You can deactivate the auto mode after any win, bonus feature win, or when you reach the specified win/loss limit. The system will even record your betting history, with information about time spent and money won throughout the sessions.
The symbols pay left to right and the bonus rounds are triggered when at least 3 Frankie’s Bonus icons land on the reels 2-4. This will start the bonus game, which will results in one of the 6 bonuses, including Free Spins with multipliers.
Fish Story That’s Actually True!
Frankie’s Fishmonger will reveal one of the following features:
- The Big Catch
- All Ways Da Pays
- Sticky Wilds
- 15 Free Spins + 1x Multiplier
- 8 Free Spins + 2x Multiplier
- 5 Free Spins + 3x Multiplier
During the Big Catch feature 2 jail bars will randomly appear on the reels, and any of the four main characters, Jimmy, Henry, Tommy, or Stacks, can end up behind the bars. The Free Spins will run up until all four are captured. Additional Bonus icons will release the captured fish and re-start the feature.
All Ways Da Pays will trigger 10 re-triggerable Free Spins and all the winning combinations will pay both ways.
Sticky Wild bonus starts 5 extra spins with the Wild icons sticking to their landing position until the feature expires. New Sticky Wilds can land during this bonus, however, the spins cannot be re-triggered.
Slots inspired by iconic movies have the advantage of attracting a number of players who would like to see how their favorite flicks translated on the reels. In this case, it is safe to say that the transition was successful. The similarity between the characters and the slot symbols is whimsical and the bonus features are quite engaging. Capisce?
