Blueprint Gaming Launches Brand New Prize Lines Slot Mechanic

Fishin Frenzy Prize Lines Blueprint Gaming

Leading game developer Blueprint Gaming has launched its brand new Prize Lines slot mechanic.

The new Prize Lines mechanic has launched with the new Fishin’ Frenzy Prize Lines slot. Designed to reach players within the online Bingo community, the brand new mechanic requires players within five spins to fill the game’s grid with symbols to complete prize lines.

The Prize Lines mechanic uses the popular Hold Over feature, where symbols remain in place over several spins. Once the five spins have been played, players are given a choice to end the game and collect their prize or purchase additional spins to complete more Prize Lines.

Fishin’ Frenzy Prize Lines is the latest iteration of the hugely popular and successful Fishin’ Lines slot, following the game’s original release as well as new variations that include Fishin’ Frenzy MegaWays and Fishin’ Frenzy Power 4 Slots, all of which add new gameplay mechanics to the hit slot.

Jo Purvis, the Director of Key Accounts and Marketing UK at Blueprint Gaming, said in a statement: “We’re excited to unveil Prize Lines to the industry, which significantly diversifies our content offering and ensures we can reach a new audience. Fishin’ Frenzy is a great game in its own right and the addition of this intriguing new mechanic allows us to take the popular brand in a new direction.”
