Lucky Fishing Megaways is an online slot from the Pragmatic Play stable. It is played on 6x7 reels with 117,649 betways that pay from left to right thanks to the Megaways mechanic. Reels one and six can have up to seven symbols and the other reels six, along with a symbol over each reel in a row above. These symbols spin right to left.

There is a wild symbol on reels two, three, four and five and on the top row. It substitutes for all others apart from a scatter and the boat symbol. The latter does not pay and appears on the top row of reels two, three, four and five. It can appear fully across two reels on a regular spin or tumble, transforming all symbols below into wilds. If it appears after a tumble in a new position on the top row, the wild transformation takes place again.

The scatter can appear any size on any reel and a minimum of four trigger free spins. You can gamble to win more free spins if up to 18 are won. If you win, four more are added; if you lose, they all disappear. Three scatters in the free spins add four more free games. A multiplier applies in this phase, beginning at 1x and increasing on each tumble. This feature can be bought.

Theme, graphics and soundtrack 

Deep sea fishing is the theme of the game, with the reels sitting on the dock of a beautiful sunlit bay. The main symbols reflect the sport, with a fisherman, boat and sunken treasure alongside big game fish and low-value card symbols.

The soundtrack is a punchy rhythm topped by the sound of the reels landing.
