Fishing With Buddies slots game is a multiplayer game in which up to five players can play together. The game allows players to choose an avatar, watch their friend’s progress, chat with other players and win a top slots jackpot of 10,000 coins.
The multiplier slots game is only available in Play for Money mode and when players join a Fishing With Buddies table they are presented with a number of 3D bear avatars to choose from.
Once the avatar is chosen, players are then taken to the main gaming area which is divided into several sections, each representing an individual player’s slot machine. In the top center area is the bonus window which shows five bears fishing and each player’s bonus status is represented by the depth of the fishing rod held by his bear avatar.
To play Fishing With Buddies slots, players will have to play with all 20 lines enabled. As the game has a fishing theme, symbols include crabs, pail, fishes and bears. Special symbols include wilds, scatters and the bonus symbol. In this online slots game, the wild is represented by the Wild logo and replaces all symbols to make winning combinations.
The wild pays out on enabled paylines and replaces all symbols with the exception of the scatter and the bonus symbol. The scatter is the Fishing With Buddies logo and does not need to occur on a particular payline in order to payout.
Two or more scatters at the end of a spin results in a multiplier being added to the payout and with scatters, players are rewarded on the total wager instead of the line wager.
When the crab symbol appears on the top row of a player’s reels, the Fish a Crab feature is triggered. The player’s 3D bear avatar casts his fishing line and pulls up the crab and wins a 5x multiplier on the total bet.
Fishing With Buddies slots has a two stage bonus round which is triggered randomly and offers super payouts. Here is how it works - during the main game, the faster a player spins, the deeper their bear’s fishing line goes into the bonus screen.
If a player slows down the bear falls asleep and should the bonus game be triggered at that time, the player will not be able to participate. Since this is a community game, all qualifying players get to participate in the first stage of the bonus game.
The bears start fishing and for every fish caught, they win cash prizes. Every bear that catches a goldfish is eligible for the second stage of the game. The first stage ends when all the fishes have been caught.
In the second bonus stage, eligible release the goldfish back to the water to receive an additional cash prize. The Fishing with Buddies slots game has top slots jackpot of 5,000 coins for five wild symbols and a secondary win of 2,000 coins for four wilds.
