There are a large number of fish in the sea and so too are there a large number of fish and sea based slot games. How and why this theme became to be is not easily discerned but now it is so much a part of the industry as to have become almost traditional, classic. The underwater theme explored in this Golden Fish Tank game from Yggdrasil however takes a slight detour from the norm in that the theme is simple but fun, with enough graphics and adorable symbols to make spinning the reels rather exciting. Otherwise the overall presentation of this slot is on the straightforward, slightly more pragmatic side of slot gaming, for the more gameplay hungry players.
There are 5 reels available for spinning and each holds 3 symbols along. Golden Fish Tank has 20 pay lines which remain fixed throughout the game. There is however some form of betting option offered through the choice of coin size. Yggdrasil have arranged all their options neatly beneath the symbols that sort of hover in the water provided by the backdrop behind. The base game hold the majority of focus in this slot, with the only real feature being a rather incredible free spins bonus. Overall this slot game compiles a decent range of experience.
The Fishy Theme Choice of this Slot
Fish are a rather tranquil creature and so with them spinning around amidst a watery theme and atmosphere is oddly enough rather soothing. That being said, this game universe is set in a fish tank, which is rather humbling on a philosophical level. Again the backdrop play a substantial role in the presence of this online slots and even with the more basic setup and graphics, still is capable of creating a modicum of atmosphere amidst the reels. There are also mutable sound effects, which are capable of adding a little something to the gaming experience.
Perhaps one of the best indications of what Golden Fish Tank is all about can be deduced from the symbols alone. Made up of two parts, one part adorable and wide eyed fish variations, and large, colourful playing card suit symbols. These paint the slot in a rather incriminating light, citing it as a fun, potentially cute slot experience, which might reflect badly on player attentiveness. Fish floating about, occasionally being spun around and around, sounds pretty entertaining from a few perspectives.
A Fully Packed Bonus Free Spins Feature
Whilst Yggdrasil might not have given Golden Fish Tank all the variety of bonus features they did give this slot a decidedly packed free spins feature. Land 3 or more of the aptly named free spins symbol on the reels to trigger a set of free spins alongside a range of feature picks. A maximum of 10 free spins and 5 feature picks can be won, with 5 Scatter free spin symbols landing on the reels.
It is the available features that make this slot feature great plus there is also an optional bet players can activate prior to spinning that costs extra but allows for an additional pick to be made on top of those awarded when the bonus comes round. The features range from additional spins to multipliers, to stacked symbols and even additional Wilds added during the feature. This definitely makes the bonus in Golden Fish Tank quite worthwhile, theme choice and all.
