Golden Fish Tank Slot Review


Head deep below the waves in Golden Fish Tank, a tranquil, underwater themed slot from Yggdrasil Gaming. It comes with a bonus feature that offers between 6 and 10 free spins as well as a choice of extras including multipliers, stacked symbols, locked or random wilds or extra games. Dip your toe in from between 20-25p and £40-50 per spin.

As we’ve become accustomed to with slots powered by Yggdrasil Gaming, Golden Fish Tank looks and sound delightful – the reels are filled with a quartet of beautifully designed, brightly coloured cartoon fish. They’re joined by playing card suit symbols and a wild which substitutes for everything apart from the free spins symbol.

Land at least 3 of the free spins symbol to trigger the Free Spins feature – four of them will get you 6 free spins, four offer 8 free spins and 10 free spins awarded if you land 5 free spins symbols anywhere on the reels.

Trigger the feature with 3 free spin symbols and you can choose 3 of the above. Pick 4 if you triggered the feature with 4 scatters. Land the feature with 5, and you can look forward to 5 picks.

If you opt to play with the Golden Bet mode in use (which will cost you 5 coins per spin – so 25p at minimum bet for example), you’ll receive 1 extra feature pick whenever the Free Spins feature is triggered. When it comes to feature picks, the choices are as follows:

  • An extra spin coin which awards another 2 or 4 free spins
  • Turning 1 of the fish into a stacked symbol on each free spin
  • Adding 1 or 2 random wilds to the reels on each free spin
  • Boosting all of your free spin wins with a 2x multiplier
  • Turning 1 of the fish symbols into a wild whenever it lands
  • Adding a wild to the reels which will remain frozen in place for the whole of the feature

If you like lots of interactivity in your slots play, then you’ll find plenty to tickle your taste buds here. Throw in the beautiful design, soothing design, slick gameplay and a potential jackpot of 10,000 coins, Golden Fish Tank is a very simple but a very enticing proposition.

I found the variance to be something in the middle with the bigger wins coming in the Free Spins feature naturally – if you were to trigger the feature with 3 scatters (giving you 3 picks), I would opt for the 2x multiplier, stacks symbols on each free spin and 1 to 2 random wilds on each free spin. If you like your slots fishy, I would recommend Lucky Larry’s Lobster Mania 2 by IGT and Great Blue by Playtech.

A sun-kissed, tropical aquarium is the setting for Golden Fish Tank, a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot powered by Yggdrasil Gaming. Beautifully designed as usual, it comes with a free spins feature where you can boost your winning chances with a series of modifiers including multipliers, stacked symbols as well as random and sticky wilds. Play from between 20p and £100 per spin.

Luscious visuals are one of Yggdrasil Gaming’s top selling points and Golden Fish Tank is suitably easy on the eye. Joining the lower value playing card suit symbols are a quartet of brightly coloured fish. The highest value is the green and yellow striped fish who awards 250 coins for a 5-symbol combination.

There’s also a standard wild that doesn’t offer any pays but does replace all other symbols bar the free spins scatter. Land 3, 4 or 5 of that free spins symbol anywhere on the reels and you’ll trigger the Free Spins feature and be awarded 6, 8 or 10 free spins. You’ll also be given 3, 4 or 5 feature modifier selections. The choices are as follows:

  • Extra spins – an extra spin coin which will another 2 to 4 free spins to your original total.
  • Stacked symbol – 1 of the fish symbols will become stacked for the duration of the feature.
  • Added Wilds – 1 or 2 wilds are to the reels at random on each free spin.
  • Multiplier – all wins are doubled.
  • Fish Wild – 1 of the fish symbols will turn wild whenever it hits during the feature.
  • Frozen Wild – whenever these land, they’ll remain locked in place for the remainder of the feature.

In the base game, you’ll have the option of paying an extra 5 coins per spins (e.g. the 20p minimum bet becomes 25p and the maximum stake goes up to £125). In return, you’ll receive 1 extra modifier pick whenever the Free Spins feature is triggered.

Golden Fish tank is a relatively tranquil affair as far as volatility is concerned with the variance is in the medium range – the free spin modifiers offer the best chances of floating away with a decent amount of coins.

Boasting quality HD visuals and a bubbling soundtrack, the design here is top end as usual. There’s plenty of variety on offer from the features too which makes Golden Fish Tank a very playable video slot and one worth dipping your toes into. If you like the theme, NetEnt’s Lucky Angler and IGT’s Lucky Larry’s Lobstermania 2 are recommended.
