Hello gamers, for those on the lookout for a new fishing-themed slot, Yggdrasil Gaming offers an interesting choice with their sequel, “Nice Catch 2 DoubleMax.” Released just six months after its predecessor, “Nice Catch DoubleMax,” this sequel presents notable differences and enhancements.
“Nice Catch 2 DoubleMax” introduces fresh elements, diverging from the original. Notably, it includes a ‘hold ‘n win’ bonus round, an expanded gaming grid, and a new character, a Diverwoman, adding depth to the gameplay.
The setting has also undergone a transformation. Moving away from the beachside backdrop of the first game, “Nice Catch 2 DoubleMax” immerses players in an underwater environment, characterized by a light blue sea and vibrant aquatic plants. A significant and immediately noticeable change is the addition of a sixth reel to the game grid, maintaining the multiplier values at the top as in the original. This additional reel adds an exciting twist to the gameplay, which you’ll appreciate as you dive into the game.
Before diving into “Nice Catch 2 DoubleMax,” make sure to select a bet size that suits you. The betting range starts at a modest 10 cents and goes up to $/€40 per spin. While the sequel offers two bonus buy options, it has removed the Golden Bet feature. It’s worth noting that the game’s winning potential has significantly decreased, and the Return to Player (RTP) rate has been slightly reduced to a default of 96%. The game is set on a 6-reel, 3-row grid, offering 729 ways to win, and it operates on a highly volatile mathematical model.
In “Nice Catch 2 DoubleMax,” the allure of regular wins is somewhat diminished unless they are combined with a substantial DoubleMax multiplier. The game features leaf-decorated card suits – clubs, diamonds, spades, and hearts – as low-value symbols. The high-value symbols include an oxygen tank, flippers, a camera, and goggles. Landing a combination of 6 low-value symbols yields a win of 1-1.2x the stake, while a 6-symbol combination of the higher-value symbols can pay out 2 to 16 times the bet. Additionally, fish money symbols can also contribute to regular wins, offering 2 times the bet for a 6-of-a-kind (OAK) hit.
