Revolver Gaming’s latest game, Good Fishes is an homage to the 1990 gangster movie with a twist. The entire cast are anthropomorphic fish!
The Good Fishes slot game is a fishy gangster’s paradise. You will find all the stereotypes, from wide-brimmed hats and sunglasses to Tommy guns and cigars–but these are wielded by friends of yours who live under the sea! So will you get made or fed to the fishes?
We know that this slot game may seem like a joke, but we urge you to keep a straight face as best you can! There are decent prizes waiting for the lucky winners who can get in with the Good fishes. The setting for this gangster classic is the murky water of New York’s Hudson River with the iconic skyline covering the background.
The symbols consist of standard 9 – A card cuits however in Good fishes these come with cigars and hats similar to that of old school gangsters. The real big payouts come from these underwater mobsters themselves. The game soundtrack fits perfectly with the setting with smooth jazz and water effects that creates a comical and dramatic scene to behold.
There is risk associated with getting into bed with these law-breaking fish, but the risk is equally matched by the rewards for the taking. The slot mechanics works off a 4-row, 5-reel grid with a decent 30 paylines to win from, and payouts can be good with even the smallest high value symbol netting you 1500x the stake for a 5-symbol combo. But what you really want to be looking for is the boss fish, the don who can reward players a 4,000x return or even better than that the clam wild that returns a staggering 10,000x the stake. However, an RTP (Return to Player) of 95.95% suggests players may be waiting a while for these returns, the high volatility of Good fishes means that wins will come less often but be rewarding when they do.
To help players make the most of Good fishes there is a bonus game with Frankie the Fishmonger, a rather menacing looking shark. Choose 1 of his 3 victims to receive a bonus game, 3 out of 6 of the possible games are fewer spins with a bigger multiplier or more spins with a smaller multiplier. The other 3 consist of The Big Catch that randomly add bars to fish symbols rewarding players with free spins, Both Way reward 10 free spins where symbols pay both ways and Sticky Wilds places Wilds on the reels that stick in position as you spin.
Just like the original movie it has been based on we can imagine Good fishes will become an instant classic. The characters, setting and audio features have made an enjoyable gaming experience like a gangster drama and the payout are well worth hanging around for.
