Scuba Fishing Slots

Diving beneath the deep blue, tropical sea is something most people dream about. To see the various types of fish swimming through the clear water, only to come back up and lounge next to the warm, tropical sun? There is nothing better, and that is why the RTG release is so appealing to us. The game is played on a 3x3 playing field with 27 ways to win. The title has only one bonus that activates randomly.

How to Play

There’s certainly a bit of a disconnect in expectations between seeing the neat intro, where the boat is sailing, and the game itself, which looks a bit dated, if we are completely honest. Rising bubbles form barriers between reels, with symbols seated in between them. The background image is quite detailed. You can see the tropical trees and the boat above the water, while beneath it, all sorts of plant life is visible. Fish swim about, and occasionally, so does a shark. The idea is executed well, but all the animations feel stiff and repetitive, when we know RTG can and has done a lot better when it comes to graphics.The user interface is the same one the developers always use, which cleanly labels where everything is. You are never more than one mouse click away from activating anything, which we really like. Scuba Fishing offers players a more compact playing field with plenty of paylines for its size. We, personally, are not big fans of 3x3 reel video slots, as they tend to be rather simplistic in gameplay and this one is no exception. Wins are awarded by collecting three of the same symbol in adjacent reels, from left to right. The game only has one bonus, which activates at random, which means that all your spins will more or less be the same. That said, the low volatility means you never have to wait too long to see a winning combination, even if most of them will be small. The constant stream of small pays helps keep you playing longer, as a result, and makes it perfect for newer players and those who just want to spin for a while and not worry about chasing several bonuses to break even.

Betting Options and Payout

You can wager between $0.20 up to $100 per spin, which is a decent betting spread. It favours casual players more, as it grants a fair few lower bets and the highest wager of $100 per spin will certainly attract high rollers too. With its low volatility, this title was aimed towards beginners in the first place. The special feature that can activate can net you a great win, but it is limited by the maximum win for this title, which is 540x the stake. Like several other RTG slots, this one also does not offer any RTP information.

Symbols and Extra Features

Symbols include sea urchins, starfish, clams, a green fish, a red fish, a puffer-fish, a pretty blue-gold fish with a white streak, and a sword fish. Special symbols include the Shark as Wild. When the shark symbol appears on the middle reel, it will expand and cover the entirety of it. A respin is awarded then, with reels one and three having blank spots or one randomly selected symbol appearing on them, which paves the way for an awesome win.

Our Verdict

Scuba Fishing is a well done 3x3 game. It was not our cup of tea, but with a simplistic bonus, low volatility and fast-paced gameplay, it will no doubt impress several players. We cannot give it our full-hearted recommendation, however, as the developers have not revealed the RTP for this title.
