Wild Marlin: Big Game Fishing Slot (Microgaming)

Wild Marlin: Big Game Fishing Slot (Microgaming)Infinity Dragon Studios has entered in to a new partnership with Games Global (these are the new owners of Microgaming’s IP) to develop a new slot called, Wild Marlin: Big Game Fishing.

The slot promises Epic Strike jackpots, with a fishing-themed design, and the action seems to take place in the middle of an ocean.

Game Set-Up

On its 5 reels are 10 pay lines, and you also get to work with some very interesting features. These features include wilds, free spins, retriggers and scatters.

Betting and Prizes

To get started with the real money bets, you will need at least $0.20 for every spin that you make.

I’ve seen much higher prizes from Microgaming slots, but not the the1,440x the stake that Wild Marlin: Big Game Fishing has. However, the volatility is within the medium level, which means it’s a less risky slot to play.

The developers have offered various RTP levels, and the highest that you can get is 96.82%.

Wild Marlin: Big Game Fishing Slot Features

The Epic Strike mechanic is a common feature on several Microgaming slots, and it's deceptively simple. The rewards from this feature are worth it, and that is why it has become very popular lately.

Landing 5+ Strike Coins on slot’ the reels will trigger a prize. With 9 of these Coins landing, you get much better payments, of up to 100x the stake.

A Wild Logo will also be available, and it comes in a green colour. The wild will act as a substitute symbol and it can replace even the Strike scatters.

I love the 10 free spins feature that is included, and with it, you have a guaranteed Bank’em Wilds. To trigger it, you will need to land at least three Pearl scatters on the reels. You can also retrigger these free spins.

Theme & Design

Wild Marlin borrows from the fishing theme, and with it, you will take a virtual tour to the ocean, and not to some lake. The fisherman appears in his boat, and the reels will appear submerged underwater.

Wild Marlin: Big Game Fishing comes with a mix of symbols that include Royals (10 to A), plus several themed icons that include fish, anchors, captain’s hat, fishing boat, and squid. Pearls, Strike Coins and Wild logos serve as the feature symbols.


Wild Marlin: Big Game Fishing is an interesting slot machine. You will easily get the flow of the game, and I enjoyed the game using my smartphone.

However, if you are looking for a slot with huge payouts, then this title will not be the best choice for you. Wild Marlin: Big Game Fishing is more suitable for casual players.
