The Fishing for Gold game is set on a five by three grid, and you’ll need to match at least five paying symbols up to win. For symbols, you have the classic card game royals from J to A. Then you have the high paying symbols which include an old boot, a bucket of fish and then the Penguin and Polar Bear characters. These symbols have a lot of thought and attention to detail put into their designs. Lastly, you have the bonus fish which shows up on reels 2, 3, and 4. This fish triggers the bonus round if you collect three on the same spin.
While there are no wilds in the main game, once you unlock the Fishing for Gold bonus round, you’ll find there are plenty. The bonus round unlocks either by collecting three bonus fish or by spinning the bonus round wheel. Each time you collect two fish on a spin, the chance of winning on the bonus wheel increase.
The bonus round itself allows you to pick from the four characters, who’ll then reel in fish and other symbols to increase your chances of winning. Each fish will give you a free spin, and other symbols can unlock specific wilds, some of which have big multipliers attached.
You can stake between €0.01 to €1 on Fishing for Gold, and the maximum jackpot amount is set at around 5,000x your stake. If you prefer to test out the slot before playing, check out the free demo of the game.

Overall, we found Fishing for Gold to be an excellent experience. While the base game is simple and perhaps lacking in excitement at times, the bonus round turns things up to eleven. When you start to add multiplier wilds into the mix, your wins will start to rack up, and things get really interesting.
We loved the look and feel of the game, with each character animated and designed well during the bonus fishing round. Some of the designs of the symbols could be improved, but the premium symbols all had a nice flair to them.
