Powered by Yggdrasil Gaming software, Golden Fish Tank Slot takes an underwater theme complete with bright colours and a peaceful vibe. Released in 2016, this is a thoroughly cute game played over five reels and three rows with 20 fixed Paylines.
The crystal-clear waters may look like the ocean, but actually, as the title suggests, the game is set in an aquarium, with the little pots and stones on the bottom perhaps a reminder of that.
How to play
Set your bets before taking the plunge! There’s a good wager range here, from 20p right up to £100 per spin, while the standard Max Bet, Autoplay and Spin functions are all present and correct.
Once you’re done, dive into the tank, where you’ll see the symbols floating beneath the surface. Icons on the reels include four gorgeously designed, cartoon-style fish in bold colours. Of these, the yellow and green angelfish is the most lucrative – get five in a row to rake in 12.5x stake.
Other symbols include the playing-card values – a purple spade, red heart, green club and blue diamond.
Golden Fish Tank Slot special features
The Wild, as ever, replaces all standard symbols save the free spins one. (Here the Wild is a relatively uninspiring yellow disc set in a purple wooden background.) It will always substitute the highest possible winning combo.
The free spins symbol incorporates a golden fish.
Golden Bet feature
Use this and pay an extra five coins for every base-game whirl. It essentially means that you get one more feature pick (as described below) whenever you play the free spins round.
Minimum stake rises to 25p with this option activated, while the maximum increases to £125.
Free spins feature
In Golden Fish Tank, the free spins round works in the following way:
- With three Scatters, you get six freebies plus three feature picks
- With four Scatters, you get eight freebies plus four feature picks
- With five Scatters you get 10 freebies plus five feature picks
These include some great goodies to make the free spins round even more exciting:
- One fish icon becomes a secondary Wild
- All free spin wins boosted with a 2x multiplier
- Addition of a Wild to the reels which stays frozen where it is for the rest of the round
- One or a couple of random Wilds added to the reels on every free whirl
- One fish icon becomes stacked on every free whirl
- An additional two or four free goes
There is a maximum win in Golden Fish Tank of 50,000 coins.
Return to Player (RTP)
RTP or Return to Player is a decent, bog-standard 96.4% when using the Golden Bet option. (Otherwise, it’s slightly lower at 95.9%.) This slot is a medium-volatility offering, hopefully meaning a fairly steady procession of wins. The hit rate is a little under one in three at 31.5%.
Certainly, there are other slots with an underwater theme, some of which may even be potentially more lucrative. Yet you should find a lot to enjoy in Golden Fish Tank, which looks stunning while offering some slick gameplay. Equally, there’s a lot going on all the time, so you should find there’s enough happening here to sustain your interest.
