WMS designed this slot with fishing in mind, hoping that you cast your line furthest to garner as many wins as possible. Fishing has always been a fun way to interact with friends, and it was only a matter of time before a gaming company tapped into that hobby.


The slot is cast in the depths of the ocean where different fish species swim around the reels. Bubbles are used to separate the reels; and every time you land a winning combination, the sound of fish splashing about alerts you that you have netted a win. The upbeat soundtrack will make for some great entertainment as you play. Some symbols on this fish-themed slot include a fishing hat, worm on a hook, box loaded with bait, fishing rod, and some coloured fish. Thankfully, you will not spot any card symbols here!

How to play Reel ‘Em In

Reel ‘Em In is a 5-reel machine with 20 adjustable paylines for which you can play 1p-£5 per payline. This translates to a 20p-£100 per spin, and with an RTP of 95.99%, it is worth giving a shot.

Symbols and bonuses to look out for:

The most significant symbol in this game is the enormous pink fish; it acts as the wild and can substitute for all other symbols. If you land 5 of these on an active payline, you get a 500 coin payout.

The bonus symbols to watch out for are the scattered lure, fishing contest lure, big bass hole, and a big bass. Landing three of the lure scatter symbols activates the fishing hole bonus where you choose a character to cast the rod into the depths a certain number of times (3 to 5). You will also get a prize according to the items you reel in:

  • Fish: Cash prize
  • Lazy fish: bigger cash prize
  • Boot: Smaller cash prize
  • Big Bass: activates the big bass feature or retriggers the fishing hole bonus
  • Treasure chest: either retriggers the Big Bass feature or the Fishing hole; or lets you pick a coin corresponding to a specific amount of cash.

The big bass fishing hole bonus becomes active once you land two or more lure scatters, plus the big bass hole lure on reel five. The number of casts you get depends on the number of symbols that triggered the bonus, and each catch you reel in will be a big bass with a nice cash prize attached.

The champion catcher contest is all about showing off your exceptional fishing skills to become the champion; to enter the contest, you must land two or more lure scatters plus a fishing contest symbol. You then choose one of the five characters to enter the competition as and then cast your lure into the sea. The items you reel back in will have varying rewards, an example being a 50x multiplier of your total stake.

The fly fishin’ feature is the most frequent bonus feature in this game and is triggered when a fly appears above reel five while there is a big bass on it. This feature rewards you with a 10x multiplier on your total wager.


Reel ‘Em In is a fantastic game with plenty of intuitive ways to win, but many players still prefer that there was a free spins feature. However, the Big Bass Bucks is still a reliable way to reel in decent wins.
