Wazdan, the gain-focused developer behind some of the world’s most rewarding casino game experiences, is deep-diving into its latest ocean-themed slot Mighty Fish™: Blue Marlin.

Tipped as the One to Watch for 2024 at the SlotsWise Awards, the game has been hotly anticipated by both operators and players thanks to its immersive design and field-tested features.

Set out on a 5×3 grid, Mighty Fish™: Blue Marlin sees an additional reel run atop the board with the Collector symbol appearing at random with a countdown, accumulating cash symbols that fall beneath it.

The game’s aquatic theme is further enhanced with the Trawler Cash Out mechanic which can be triggered in addition to the standard Cash Out, paying both its collected cash symbol in addition to the ones on the reels above when its countdown reaches zero.

Three starfish scatter symbols award an initial ten Free Spins. This round is augmented by the Collect to Infinity™ feature which can prolong the lifespan of the Collector for the duration of the Free Spins, providing a maximum win potential of 2,500x.

Wazdan’s latest feature-rich release sees the provider further diversify its offering, following two recent additions to its top-performing series, Hot Slot™: 777 Rubies Extremely Light and Hot Slot™: 777 Cash Out Grand Gold Edition.

Andrzej Hyla, Chief Commercial Officer at Wazdan, said: “Immersing players in a mesmerising oceanic backdrop complemented by our gain-guaranteeing features, Mighty Fish™: Blue Marlin marks one of Wazdan’s most hotly anticipated releases to date.

“With seamless thematic mechanics such as the new Trawler Cash Out feature, Mighty Fish™: Blue Marlin is already an award-winning title, and we have no doubt players will deep-dive into its engaging gameplay.”
