Marvelous Marlins is an unconventional video slot game from Vegas Technology. At first glance, you might think that it's just a traditional three reel video slot, but it's unlike any one armed bandit you've ever played.
The theme is sports fishing for Marlin (a kind of swordfish), and since this is what you're out there hunting for, it's also all you're rewarded for. Pull in a Marlin? Get heaped with riches. Pull in anything else? Well ... maybe you can eat it? You're certainly not getting any coins for it.
It's an unconventional approach to video slot, but it's catching on fast. Go fishing for Marlin with Liberty Slots Casino - you can download this excellent game to your computer for free, or play it on their website.
Rod? Check. Boat? Check
If you're familiar with playing video slots, most of how to play this game will seem familiar. However, there are a couple of unique quirks that you won't find in any other video slot game.
To start with, there are three pay lines: the top line, the middle line, and the bottom line. All three of these pay lines are activated all of the time, regardless of how many coins you choose to play in the game.
Speaking of coins, Marvelous Marlins allows you to adjust the value of each coin to suit your budget and playing style. You can set them as low as $.10, or push them as high as $10.
The aim of the game is to spin the reels, and see how many Marlin you can catch when they come to a halt. You will be paid out for every single Marlin you can see on screen, regardless of where it lands - it doesn't even matter if it's not lined up, you'll still win. How much you win is determined exclusively by the position of the Marlin on screen, and how many coins you currently playing.
The Fish-Spotter's Handbook
The symbols on the game represent a fair number of different sea creatures, but of course only one is worth anything.Expect to see clown fish, octopi and even sharks, but they won't do you any good, not even if they line up. The only symbol that is worth anything at all is the Marlin.
Fresh Bait For Big Wins
There is a small possibility that you could talk things in your favour by making use of the game's Stop Spin button. It becomes active after the first reel has landed. It did, and the remaining reels still spinning will freeze instantly. So, if your reactions are fast enough, maybe you could catch a fish?
