Fishing is not only a hobby but is also an industry. There are two online pokies from Microgaming that are based on the deep sea fishing aspect. You can play them at Australian online casinos like Casino Mate, Royal Vegas and 32Red.
Reel Spinner is an online pokie that was released in the recent past. So you have high quality graphics and audio that includes the rumble of the ocean waves. The high paying symbols are fishing boat, compass, reel and accelerator. Different marine fish are used as the low paying symbols. The game logo is the wild symbol and it also awards the top line payouts. The silhouette of the marlin is the scatter symbol. Three or more scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels trigger the bonus feature. You will be first taken to the second screen for playing a two-level bonus game that determines the parameters for the free spins. In the first level the screen displays six fishing boats. You select one boat and will be awarded up to 20 free spins. In the second level you have to do a bit of fishing. You draw in the reel to see what payout multiplier you have caught. The maximum multiplier is 5x. During the free spins the wild symbol can appear stacked on all reels. Unfortunately, this amazing free spins feature cannot be retriggered. Reel Spinner has the standard 5×3 structure with 15 fixed paylines. The maximum bet per spin is AU$11.25. Hence this is essentially a low rollers online pokie.
Wild Catch is a much older online pokie. This 243 ways to win online pokie adds a comic touch in the depiction and win animations of its main symbols. The wild symbol is the marlin fish. It can land only on reels 2, 3 and 4. If you get the marlin on all these three reels then the Wild Feature is triggered. You get five free spins with a 3x payout multiplier. Each wild symbol that appears during this feature awards one extra free spin. The scatter symbol is the man in a tire. Three, four and five symbols award 10, 15 and 20 free spins respectively. Each win with a wild symbol has payouts multiplied. The first such win has a multiplier of 1x. Then the multipliers increase by 1x till they reach 10x. Both features can be retriggered. The thematic symbols include trophy, trawler, lure and weighing scale. The low paying symbols are the regular playing card icons.
