The biggest draw that this game has is its simplicity. The ease of play, together with the high quality of graphics and animations and the possibility of picking up some really cool wins with the single bonus feature, makes for a memorable play experience.
All the symbols in Scuba Fishing are from the sea. The backdrop itself is the water just beneath the ocean’s surface, with a boat lazily anchored at the top. There is a scuba diver with a camera to capture the action on the reels whenever something cool happens. There is a treasure chest too, and a shark doing the proverbial rounds. Among the symbols in the game are a swordfish, a puffer fish, a variety of other fishes, an oyster with a pearl in it, a sea anemone, a sea cucumber and a star fish.
There is a massive shark too, and this is the game’s wild symbol. It replaces all other symbols across the reels to give you a chance to score some decent wins. There is no scatter symbol in the game, however. The wild symbol plays an important role in the game also because it is the main trigger for the bonus re-spin feature.
All wins pay from left to right in this game. There is no jackpot to win in this game, but there is a significantly large maximum win value of 540 times your bet amount. So if you are betting the maximum number of coins you have a shot at a fairly big payout.
Scuba Fishing is simple to play. Load the game on your device screen – desktop, laptop or mobile device – Android, iOS or Windows Phone smartphone or tablet – by clicking the game thumbnail. Then, select your bet size by clicking the ‘-’ or ‘+’ button on either side of the section for bet size. The minimum bet you can place is 0.20, while the maximum is 2.00.
After placing your bets, click the Spin button at the bottom right to get the reels spinning. Once the reels stop spinning you get to know whether you lost or won, depending on where the symbols landed across the reels. The kind of symbols on a winning combination determine how much you win during a round.
While the base game is exciting, the icing is the cool bonus feature, which is the re-spin feature. This feature is triggered when you land 3 wild shark symbols on the center reel, i.e. reel 2. When this happens, the three symbols stack up to expand and cover the whole reel as a single symbol. The middle reel with the stacked wild symbol remains static while the first and third reels spin away thanks to the re-spin being triggered. On these 2 reels there is a blank symbol and another random symbol.
At the end of the re-spin feature you get a number of treasure chest symbols across the reels and the amount you won is displayed on your screen, after which you are returned to the base game.
The biggest advantage of the re-spin feature is that it gives you a shot at some really cool wins because of the frozen second reel with the expanded and stacked wild shark on it. If you landed a high-paying symbol on the other 2 reels, for instance, you could be on your way to a really good payout.
