GoldFish includes five random fishy features that can trigger after any spin and I was lucky enough to hit one of those with the few spins I could afford with my £2 free winnings. It was a basic "Pick Me" feature where you are asked to choose from the bubbles onscreen which hide prizes varying between 2x and 25x your stake, plus one special bubble that awards you the prizes from all the bubbles combined for a total of around 50x stake. Pretty standard and nothing world shattering, but still a welcome improvement on a dead spin!
The base paytable in this game is a little better than most WMS games but it's worth bearing in mind that's a result of this being a more standard game than much of their catalogue and as there's no stacked wilds here to help you win on many paylines at once so it stands to reason that the regular wins should be a little higher. The top goldfish wild symbol returns a chunky 400x stake for five of a kind, and the maximum scatter win is 100x bet too.
Suspiciously absent from this game is any kind of "autoplay" function, I thought it was probably just not included in the free play version here at AskGamblers but I couldn't find it at GUTS either. Very strange, and I hope that isn't a sign of things to come as having to press the "Spin" button every couple of seconds gets tiresome very fast!
I've played the deluxe version of this game in my local casino a couple of months back and thought it was really excellent, but was quite surprised at just big a downgrade this version is - I'm sure WMS will be bringing the Deluxe version on-line soon though so I'll be watching out for that!
