Bigger Bass Blizzard Christmas Catch

Bigger Bass Blizzard Christmas Catch

Dale Shelabarger

Bigger Bass Blizzard – Christmas Catch (from here on in BBBCC) is our Christmas slot of the month. Despite a Scrooge-like volatility and a reduced RTP, the game includes cumulative cash prizes, a multiplier trail bonus round (for a change like) and a 4000x maximum win potential. It also lends itself very well to mobile play, even if the theme is a bit ‘meh’.


There’s nothing quite as festive as a wet fish, said nobody ever. Not to worry though because this is an online slot game. The only thing players want when it comes to Christmas reel-spinning is a big win and maybe a cursory visual reminder of the most wonderful time of the year.

As far as these two prerequisites go, BBBCC registers a respectable 50% score. Yep, the representation of Christmas is about as cursory as you can get. Think ‘UK high-street’ and you’ll have an idea of the festive minimalism here.

In fact, there’s nothing to actually suggest that this is a Christmas slot in the visuals department. Icicles hang from the top of the game area with a wintry forest serving as the background. And that’s it.

The only suggestion that Christmas is upon is the upbeat melody that jingles away in the background. This begs to be muted from get-go, naturally.


How to Play

As ever, the low-value reel symbols are represented by playing card icons, all of which pay out 10x your stake for five symbol combos. Medium-to-high value symbols are signified by tackle boxes, fishing rods, floats, fish and a snowmobile. The latter is the most valuable and can pay out 50x your stake when five of them appear across a pay-line.

Fish Symbol Cash Prizes

The fish symbols appear with prizes of between 2x and 4000x your stake. These can be collected together if you manage to land five fish in combination. Sadly, this happens about as often as an Australian white Christmas.

The fisherman serves as a non-paying wild and does what wilds do – replace other symbols to create winning combinations…potentially. However, he’s only active during the free spins round.

Free Spins Round

The free spins round is activated by landing three or more scatters. 10 free spins will be immediately awarded, assuming you trigger the round with three scatters. If you land four, you’ll get 15 free spins and for five triggering scatters, you’ll receive 20 free spins.

As mentioned, the free spins round is where the wild kicks in. Every time it appears on the reels, it will collect all of the fish symbol values – should the max win fish appear (it won’t), you’ll win the maximum 4000x your stake pay-out.

Every time the wild collects cash prizes, it is itself added to the Multiplier Trail installed above the game area. Every four wilds upgrade the multiplier and give you another 10 free spins. The trail moves in increments of one, from x2 up to x10.


Although the Big Bass franchise has undergone more re-skins than a rusting Austin Allegro, its sound core game-play and multiplier trail ensures its enduring popularity with players. The 4000x max win potential of this particular festive iteration makes it stand out ever so slightly from all the other versions. But like a Yuletide number one, BBBCC’s relevance will evaporate as the New Year approaches.
