GoodFishes is based on Martin Scorsese’s gangster film. In this game, the gangsters are fish, of all things. Considered one of the most hilarious slots to come along in a while, GoodFishes does have a fabulous introduction with the Hudson River, the Brooklyn Bridge, the City of New York, and the gangster fishes beneath the mucky waters. The intro also tells us that there are stacked wilds and 6 free spins Bonus Games. Once you continue to the game, the murky water turns into an ocean blue with the City skyline in the background., all of which you can see through the slot game. The animations in this game are terrific!
About the Game
The cards symbols in this are awful, but if you concentrate on the main symbols, you will manage to enjoy this game. To the bottom right of the slot are 3 horizontal lines. Click on this icon and it will take you to a second screen where you will find the following: Show Splash Screen, Left Handed Mode, Bet Settings, AutoPlay, Scrolling Pay Table, and Game Rules. We do recommend you read the pay table as it contains all the symbols, payouts, and special features.
Playing the Game
There are two special symbols in this game: The Clam and the Good Fishes Logo. The Clam symbol is wild and substitutes for all other symbols to form winning combinations. It does not substitute for the Scatter or Bonus symbols. In the main game, Wild symbols can appear in stacks. Three or more Bonus symbols that appear on reels 2, 3, and 4 will trigger Frankie’s Fishmonger Bonus. Yes, one of the major fish characters is named Frankie. Well, we are talking about gangsters here. “Frank-ly”, the payouts are not that high.
Frankie’s Fishmonger Bonus Game
In this bonus round, you will be asked to choose one of the hanging dead fish in order to win one of the 6 bonus games. These bonus games consist of the following: The Big Catch; All Ways Da Pay; and Sticky Wilds. If three bonus symbols appear in any position on reels 2, 3, o4 4, then these additional free spins equal to the number of spins when entering the bonus game will be given. 15 free spins with a 1xs multiplier; 8 free spins with a 2xs multiplier; and 5 free spins with a 3xs multiplier.
The Big Catch
Two jail bars will appear in a random position on the reels each time a game is played. Jimmy, Tommy, Harry, and Stacks are captured and sent to jail if any of them land behind the bars. The Free Spins Bonus round will continue until all four fish have been captured. If three bonus symbols appear anywhere on reels 2, 3, and 4, then all captured fish will be released from jail and more fish must be captured again. If fish are captured and 3 bonus symbols appear, then those fish are released along with the fish that are currently in jail.
All Ways Da Pays
You will be awarded 10 free spins when the bonus game begins. If three bonus symbols appear on reels 2, 3, and 4, then an additional 10 free spins will be awarded. All games will be played left to right and right to left. If five of a kind appears on the reels, the pay will be awarded twice.
You will be awarded 5 free spins when the Bonus Game begins. Each time a Wild symbol appears on the reels, it will remain in that position until the end of the bonus game. This round cannot be retriggered.
GoodFishes Slots is Quite a “Catch”
Even though the pay scale is lower than expected, you may just hit some high payouts in the free spins round and the bonus games.
