What’s The Deal?
Remember the Fishin’ Frenzy slot? Released in 2014, it’s been a favourite ever since – and now Inspired Gaming has created its own version, called Fishing Cash Pots.
Sticky bonus symbols are the USP in this game and cleverly combine to bring in the wins in the Fisherman’s bonus.
Ready for a deep sea dive? Let’s see what this slot is made of! If you like salty slots you might also want to try the Ancient Fortunes Poseidon Megaways slot by the way, but I digress.
Graphics and Theme
This underwater adventure doesn’t look too bad! The graphics are cartoon style (similar to Fishing Frenzy’s) and are characterised by bright visuals plus a laid-back Caribbean-style soundtrack. Think Amber Sterling’s Mystic Shrine slot with a few more fish.
Your reels are set in the ocean with purple soft coral at the bottom of the screen, and the odd bit of seaweed swaying from time to time.
There are eleven symbols on the reels in Fishing Cash Pots; the J, Q, K & A playing card icons plus, a fishing hook, an old boot, a silver fish, a friendly-faced lobster, a fisherman’s trophy, the game logo, and a life ring.
The fisherman in his yellow galoshes acts as the bonus icon here, and there is no Wild symbol in the game
Fishing Cash Pots has five reels, three rows and ten pay lines. Place your bets between 0.10 and 60.00 coins per line. Not as many lines as 81 Frutas Grandes then, which should give you an idea of how this game plays (it’s medium variance, leaning towards the high side).
You need to match three symbols on a pay-line to get a win. The fish icons also come with cash values up to 25x your bet – which is a nice touch.
In terms of volatility, we would put it in the low-medium category.
Fishing Cash Pots Slot Bonuses
There’s only one extra feature in the Fishing Cash Pots slot.
Land at least six fish symbols on reels 1 to 4, and the Fisherman bonus symbol on reel 5. Now all the scatters will become gold and you’ll be given five Re-spins.
All the fish icons will now be sticky, and you’ll take your re-spins. The icons on the reels will be the fish icons only and their values will be higher than in the base game ranging from. When the round is over, all the cash values will be added up and you’ll receive your payout.
Nice one! I knew there was more to fish than gills and tails.
So, will the Fishing Cash Pots slot bring you a treasure chest full of wins or just an old boot on the end of your fishing rod?
Our verdict: it’s a simple slot that doesn’t quite live up to Fishy Frenzy itself. Still, if you feel like dipping your toe into a medium variance slot, you could do worse.
Wombat score: 3.9/5

How volatile is Fishing Cash Pots?
