Did We Get Hooked Playing the New Fishin’ for Gold Slot From iSoftBet?
Videoslots Casino has recently added the latest slot from iSoftBet titled Fishin’ for Gold. A classic land-based style Fishing themed slot featuring 4 anglers in search of Free Spins and Golden Wilds.
The Fishin’ for Gold slot looks to have been heavily inspired by the popular Where’s the Gold slot from Aristocrat, a land-based slot converted to online play with a few new features to increase the volatility somewhat.
The base game is a regular 5×3 reel slot with 25 fixed paylines. Whilst there are no special base game features when landing 2 scatters, these are collected in a special “Bonus Chance” pie. This is basically a gamble option for instantly triggering the bonus round. The more double scatters you collect, the larger the chance of winning, with a maximum of 100 required to fill this meter.
The free spins bonus round is where the real potential of this slot lies, triggered by landing 3 scatters on the middle reels. You are then transported to a fishing mini-game where the four anglers compete to catch fish (free spins) and special wild symbols, with multiplier values up to 5x attached to them.
The key to the biggest wins is fishing the more regular symbols like Kings and Aces as extra wilds, and these symbols also having multipliers. These low paying symbols are found much more frequently on the bonus reels giving increased chances of full wild lines with multipliers.
Extra spins can also be earned during the bonus round by collecting 3 scatters symbols awarding an extra 2 free spins, which helps extend the bonus round.
Looking for other similar themed slots? Then, check out the Secrets of the Sorcerer slot, which is almost identical in terms of mechanics.

The Bonus Chance meter is only filled when exactly 2 scatters land in the base game, the bonus chance can be played at any time once a portion of it has been filled and costs the current bet size to spin, landing in the green section will instantly award the bonus round.
The free spins are triggered by landing 3 scatters on the middle reels, you then need to pick 1 of the 4 fisherman who will fish up a number of fish (free spins) and possibly some special symbols which will be golden in colour and act as wilds during the bonus round, these can also come with a variety of multipliers up to 5x.
Extra spins are awarded during the bonus round everytime you collect 3 scatters.
Fishin' for Gold Slot
The Fishin’ for Gold slot from iSoftBet is a slot we were really excited to playtest, mainly due to the inspiration they have taken from the Where’s the Gold slot from Aristocrat. This new release looks to have a touch more variance thanks to the bigger multipliers.
With a few extra wilds, we were able to get bonus rounds well over 100x stake, and with a 3x Ace symbol and 2 other wilds, we managed our best bonus round of over 300x stake, so definitely some decent hit potential.
Overall this slot should definitely appeal to players who have been around long enough to remember the original slot. Even if not, the random fishing game is always exciting as you hope for your fisherman to pick out lots of free spins and good wild symbols with multipliers!
