23 March 2022 — Inspired Entertainment, Inc. (“Inspired” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: INSE) is pleased to announce the launch of its latest slot game, Big Fishing Fortune™, a fishing-themed game that invites players to go on a fun and lucrative fishing adventure. This 5-reel, 3-row, 10 win-line fishing expedition slot features a friendly fisherman, Wilds and a Big Fishing Fortune Bonus that awards unlimited Free Spins.
Players will need to cast their hook and line to reel in three or more bonus symbols to trigger the Big Fishing Fortune Bonus. During the Big Fishing Fortune Bonus, players will have unlimited free spins until the fisherman catches the Big Fish Value. The Big Fish Value is determined in the match-3 game.
In the match-3 game, players will be presented with 6, 9 or 12 identical titles depending on the number of bonus symbols used to trigger the feature. Selecting these symbols one at a time will uncover a Big Fish Value, which can be up to 100x the stake.
Players should watch out for the fisherman and any fish landing in view during the bonus. The values shown on the fish will be paid—and if more than one fisherman appears, each fish is awarded again for every extra fisherman in view, offering players potentially lucrative cash pay-outs and a guaranteed Big Fish win!
Big Fishing Fortune’s online success was a catalyst for its conversion into a UK B3 game, supporting Inspired’s omni-channel strategic approach in offering multi-faceted content to its retail customers. Big Fishing Fortune is a Big Bonus style game that features Inspired’s game-changing Free Spins mechanic, which was released in August 2020 and has quickly earned loyal, active players. Due to player demand, this mechanic is taking a more dominant place on Inspired’s retail and iGaming roadmaps for 2022. Big Fishing Fortune gives players an all-round fun and engaging gaming experience, whether online, on mobile, or now on retail cabinets.
Steve Collett, Chief Product Officer at Inspired, said: ‘’We’re thrilled to be launching Big Fishing Fortune in UK retail. We are confident this slot will appeal to new players and players familiar with the brand online. As Inspired continues to expand its omni-channel portfolio, the Company has found it’s important for retail customers to be able to play their favourite games online as well.”
