It might not be as unconventional as some might have expected, but Ugliest Catch sill has Nolimit City’s sass imprinted all over it.

With so many fishing-themed slot games out there, it was only a matter of time before Nolimit City came out with their take on it. The Ugliest Catch slot is certainly not conventional as cutesy graphics are replaced by a dirty and swampy setting where illegal and toxic dumping has led to mutated fish. Typical NLC in many ways, it’s a fishing destination where most wouldn’t dare to venture to. Set in the deep south, it’s all about landing Free Spins Scatters which opens up Enhancer Cells. These have been used in other Nolimit City slots such as Mental, Serial and San Quentin amongst others. Anyway, xWays increase the number of ways to win and Big Berta contains random bet multipliers up to 5,000x. If you land the Golden Fisherman Wild, the Kill N’ Grill Wild Fishing feature which sees multipliers from collected Fish Trophy symbols added together and awarded. Fish Trophy symbols can be worth up to 5,000 x bet too. Then you have the 3 free spins features which have either 6, 8 or 10 Enhancer Cells opened. The important part are the 3 Troll Levels which are reached with every 4th Fisherman Wild collected. As well as awarding additional free spins and the Kill N’ Grill Wild Fishing feature, the multiplier increases to 2x, 3x and finally 10x. The Troll Level multiplier applies to collected Fish Trophy symbols. With 50,000 x bet max wins possible, the route to landing a big catch is via the Fish Trophy symbols, the Big Berta multipliers and Troll Level multipliers during the free spins. I would argue that the Golden Fisherman Wild is the key as he collects Fish Trophy prizes and increases the Troll Level. All in all, the Ugliest Catch slot may not be your usual fishing trip but the potential for a big catch is certainly possible if you’re willing to get down and dirty in the deep American south.

At an extra cost per spin, the player is guaranteed a Scatter symbol on each spin - increasing the chance of getting into the Bonus Modes. The payout for each symbol is not affected.

xWays® image

xWays® unlocks unprecedented win potential for players. Usually seen in a fixed Ways game, any xWays symbols that land reveals a stack of the same symbol, increasing the ways available to win, and when working alongside some of the other mechanics available in this series, such as xNudge or xSplit, can pave the way for some huge wins. xWays® first made an appearance in Pixies Vs Pirates, although many players will more likely recognise this mechanic from Punk Rocker, an early 2020 release. Alongside these two releases, xWays has made an appearance in a host of other NolimitCity games, including Dragon Tribe, East Coast vs West Coast, and San Quentin – the early 2021 release which rocked the community with news of a 150,000x maximum win availability.
