When placing your bet, you can decide the value per line and the amount of pay lines. Bets go from €0,01 to €0,10 per line, making this a game with a minimum bet of €0,01 and a maximum of €1.
Once you have set your bait, it’s time to throw out the line! It may take a while before the fish start to bite. But luckily for the player, this game is very generous in the amount of randomly selected bonus spins and rewards. When the fisherman symbol appears on your screen, get ready. Because you can expect some big finned monstrous fish on your hook!
When the reels have come to stop, the slot will calculate your win lines. All wins are worth what is presented in the pay table. Our advice is always to check out that before you start to play so you know what to expect.

In-Game Gamble Feature
We already covered the Fishin’ Frenzy free spins that can be rewared when you land three Scatter symbols. But this easy-looking slot offers more than that!
One of the most famous features of Merkur games has to be the Gamble feature. Every time you land a win you can pay out the winnings, but you can also choose to start the Gamble Game. Merkur generally offers two different versions:
- Card Gamble: With this feature you need to decide which colour the next card will be. You can bet on Red or Black, which will double your winnings. Feeling more adventurous? You can also bet on one of the four symbols ‘Hearts’, ‘Diamonds’, ‘Spades’, ‘Clovers’. If you land this bet, your winnings will go x4.
- Ladder Gamble: the classic ‘higher / lower’ gamble. You can see your winnings in the middle and 1 higher amount and 1 lower amount start flashing in turn. Press the button and does the higher amount stay lit? Congratulations, you are now moving up that rung and playing on. Is the amount lower? Then you go down one step. You can continue until you reach the top or bottom.
Of course, in both gamble games you can decide when to stop and pay out your winnings. Another great Fishin' Frenzy tip is to use the "Collect Half" feature. When you do this, you get 50% of your winnings transferred to your account and the other 50% stays in the gamble game. This way you can pay out a small amount of profit and still continue playing with a smaller amount.
