Theme & story 

A fun cartoon-style design adds a cheery edge to the game’s manly sporting theme. It might not make the headlines but fishing is one of the most popular leisure pastimes in both the US and the UK, with this game giving the sport a rare spotlight. To the left of the reels is a muscly angler holding his rod ready to start fishing, and beyond him is a natural lake scene. The reels are encased in wood, adding to the game's rustic outdoorsy theme. Within the reels, various aquatic creatures are the high-paying symbols, including a turtle, red fish, blue fish and hammerhead shark, despite the fact you won’t find many turtles or hammerhead sharks in a freshwater lake! Let’s forget about the inconsistencies and focus on the positives, such as the fun staccato soundtrack, the unusual theme and the fun graphics.

Overall Catch & Release review: our verdict

We really enjoyed this game, not least because of its fun graphics and unusual theme. The game’s highlights are undoubtedly the free spins round with a generous sticky wild feature and the super-fun bonus game that lets you do a bit of fishing yourself. In addition to these main highlights, the game boasts extras including a gamble option and variable paylines. Available to enjoy for free right here at Slots Temple, it is just one of the thousands of games we host in demo mode. 

If you enjoy a fishing themed slot game, why not take a spin on the ever-popular Fishin Frenzy slot demo from the aptly named Reel Time Gaming?

Alternatively, you might like to try some of the other popular Nucleus Gaming free play slots, such as Spirit of the Nile, The Family or Mystic Rift.
