Fish Party is a humorous under sea slot by MicroGaming. On the reels you’ll find a bunch of very colourful and mostly happy sea creatures. I say mostly happy, because the star fish is scowling, while a large green fish has a shocked look on his face. Perhaps he has just seen the hook featuring a too-happy worm on it?
This slot gives you 243 opportunities to win on every spin, while the wild symbol is stacked throughout the game. Land the feature and the wilds aren’t the only stacked symbols and those all-important wins become much easier to achieve.
Fish Party is a five-reel slot. This game uses the all-ways winning system, meaning that you’ll win when landing symbols on consecutive reels from left to right. This is irrespective of the position on each of the reels (unlike your more standard win lines). The cost of each spin is 30 credits, which effectively gives you 243 ways to win on every spin. A gamble after win option is available. This is based on the flip of a playing card, and lets you pick either colour or suits.
The highest paying standard symbol is a pink treasure chest. The chest is slightly open and you can see gold coins and pearls inside. Land this on all five reels and you’ll win 800 coins. Next on the pay table is a rather happy large blue fish. This fish wears a crown, so being the king might be the reason he is so happy. This fish pays 700 coins. A female orange fish pays 600 coins, while a very confused looking purple fish is worth 500 coins. The reels are completed by a variety of other sea creatures including a clam and a sea snail. The poor worm also features.
The wild symbol in the game shows the logo title of the slot and features a castle. The wild will substitute for any other symbol apart from the scatter. This is stacked on all five reels which certainly makes those wins easier. This wild is also the highest paying symbol in the game, worth 1,600 coins for hitting it on each of the reels. Combined with the all-ways winning system, this wild can trigger a lot of different wins on some spins.
A clam, looking out from under its shell with two beady eyes is the bonus symbol. Land 2, 3, 4 or 5 of these symbols and you’ll win an instant scatter win, with a maximum pay out of 3,000 coins. Three or more scatters will also see you enter the free spins bonus round.
You’ll be awarded a random number of spins up to 20 with some nice added bonuses. First, the wild symbols will now become super stacked throughout the feature. This will make wins more frequent in itself. Second, the highest four paying standard symbols will also become stacked. Wins with these symbols will therefore also become easier, especially with the 243 ways to win. This all makes for a feature where wins will be easier to achieve and when they come, they’ll often be at the higher end of the pay table.
This MicroGaming design is set against the backdrop of the sea bed. Coral and reeds are in the background, while bubbles continually rise up to the surface. Each of the symbols has a transparent backing, so the background is in view at all times. Each of the symbols will put a smile on your face. The comic, cartoon style design of the fish will remind you of Disney films such as Finding Nemo. The symbols are only made better by the added animation. The upbeat soundtrack to the game only adds to the fun atmosphere of the game.
Fish Party is an enjoyable slot from start to finish. You have the appealing characters in the game which light up the reels and the visuals are high quality throughout. The game play is good too. With 243 ways to win on every spin, you’ll never wait too long for a pay-out. The feature takes the game to a new level too. With more stacked symbols and bigger wins, this is a feature you’ll certainly want to land.
