Hi All,

I hope that 2019 is treating you well.

As some of you may know RTG introduced first Shooting game called Fish Catch. I just had some feedback from a customer in regards to the rules of the game.

At first glance it looks simple however I would advise anyone who wish to try the game, please use play for fun mode just to get the gist how it works.

TIPS:

• Bets can only be played with real money balance
• Select the room you want to play in
• Option to choose from over 20 fish species to shoot
• Only bullets that hit fish are counted as real bets
• Each fish has a different value, so choose wisely
• Option to increase the power of cannons while increasing the bet multipliers up to 10x​
I hope this little advice will help some of you wishing to try it on.

Kind Regards,
Karolina

RTG releases lately have been pretty crap IMO. Asguard is pretty good but I would say their last 10 releases havent been very good aside from that one. They need another hit like ghost ship, paydirt achilles and I really hope they stop using that new software on slots, I really do not like them at all and never play them

Maybe someone can explain it to me at some point...

I am not going to bother learning how to play this or even look at the rules in depth. The alarm bells rang as soon as it mentioned skill game. Looking at it logically it must have a rtp. How can a skill game have a rtp? If it has or hasn’t then to make money from the game certain things have to be factored in. Such as the providers knowing that no matter how good you are the fish with a high value don’t spend long enough on the screen to be hit enough times to win the value. If it was purely skill there would be enough top gamers out there to win every time and the game would lose a fortune. There are loads of other things that can’t be right about this sort of game but my initial reaction is how can this have passed any testing. If my ignorance of properly looking into the game means I have misunderstood then please educate me but I watched the video and thought I don’t need to look any further.

Missed this thread the first go-around, seems like it might fit more in the slots discussion or America section.

I think you're misinterpreting what "skill" means in this case. It doesn't mean a skillful player can beat the house - it means a "skilled" player can lose slightly less than everyone else. (If any of the advertising implied otherwise, then it's not being honest.)

How exactly does that work you ask? It's a multiplayer game, and a whopping... .2% of the bets are withheld for the leaderboard in some fashion. In other words, if you've got 4 or 5 people in the game, if you spam more bullets to kill more fish than everyone else over the 5 minute round, you get part of other people's .2%. (Yes, that's really all the "skill" component is.)

In other words, the skill of the game means you can lose very slightly less than others by losing more than others (wagering more and in an indiscriminate fashion). And the skill is just spamming the highest bet as fast as you can for 5 minutes - which would be pretty much bankroll suicide for a couple different reasons.

If you close the game before the round is up, as far as I can tell you literally just don't get the leaderboard reward - I was the only one in the "room" when i tried it, closed the game after busting quickly, didn't get my 50 cents or whatever back (didn't care to wait around for it.)

So I wouldn't say it's an entirely uninteresting idea, but the .2% leaderboard for spamming shots is not something I am impressed with.

Also, because of that .2% multiplayer aspect, RTG, in their infinite wisdom, decided it's not eligible for bonuses. And since playing RTG slots without a bonus for more than short sessions is suicide, I would recommend you keep your sessions short and just gamble on the bigger fish if you want to play, expecting to lose quickly if you don't hit. If you prefer to play without bonuses anyway, you could give it a try - still, don't waste your time gambling on the fish that pay 1.08x bet.

Also, since it's RTG, who knows what the hell the RTP is. Maybe someone like Karolina could tell us if it's automatically set to the same RTP as slots at least?

If anyone is confused about how the game works, I probably understand enough to explain, though of course I don't know numbers like RTP or the chance of that instant feature popup thing.

Ok I kind of understand but there is not a chance I will be playing it. I was just interested in how it works.
