If a fish bowl slides onto screen and a goldfish jumps into the bowl, you will have triggered the free spins bonus. Five bubbles will appear on screen, burst one for the number of spins. The five bubbles will contain one of the following: 5, 8, 10, 15 or 20 free spins. A further set of five bubbles will appear, these are the multipliers for the game and will multiply all winning spins by the chosen amount. 2x, 3x, 5x, 7x and 10x pays. 20 free spins plus a ten times pay should result in a very large win, with all wins multiplied by your initial starting stake.
If the fishbowl slides into view after your spin and a purple fish jumps in, you will be awarded the Purple Fish bonus. This one is a little bit boring and doesn’t require any player interaction. The purple fish will blow three bubble, each with a number between 0 and 9. These numbers will then arrange themselves to form a cash win which is paid to the bank, ending the feature.
Anyone who has seen Finding Nemo will recognise the Clown Fish. If he jumps into the fishbowl after a spin, you will be awarded the Red Fish bonus. The Red Fish bonus allows you to select either a castle, clam or treasure chest. The selection will then show a cash award which can then be increased significantly if other fish kiss the award. If the purple fish kisses your award it can increase between 25x and 200x, Blue fish raises the award between 20x and 100x, Green fish raises the value between 5x and 50x, and the Goldfish will double the current value. There can be between 2 and 10 kisses per feature bonus, so this has the potential for some very large cash prizes.
The green fish jumping into your fishbowl will trigger the cleverly named Green Fish feature. This will offer a selection of bubbles, choose just one to be paid that prize. If the bubble reveals the word ‘all’, you will win all of the cash awards.
The fishbowl sliding in and the blue fish leaping in will award the Blue Fish bonus. This is a great feature and awards between one and three super scatter wins. Once activated, the reels will pay on any matching symbols in view, so no near misses with this feature. Unfortunately you don’t get too many spins, but they should all be fairly high value.
The Fish Food Feature
the reels, or it may also betriggered via the blue or goldfish features. The fish food cans contain various kinds of fish food, select three matching and receive an award for that match, or match four to receive double the amount. Finding three Turtle food cans offers the selection of one of three turtles, which will offer a further reward.
The reel wins on the Goldfish slot machine are pretty standard, with pay lines that you would expect to find on any other slot machine, so there is no confusion in where your wins connect. Although there are 25 pay lines here, which adds an additional winning element to the game play. All in all Goldfish is a good fun, great looking game.
