Launched in June 2023, Eric’s Big Catch™ is the perfect summer slot for gambling enthusiasts who enjoy the thrill of fishing or who are simply fond of slots that are centered around the practice. It features a fierce Viking as its main character and an epic soundtrack that is a perfect fit for the setting, given how it is the Vikings who are sailing the high seas. The game’s user interface is easy to navigate, and it has a 5×3 slot layout with 20 paylines. Eric’s Big Catch™ looks fantastic in terms of the visuals as well, thanks to the crisp yet cartoony art style and the vibrant colors of the icons and the background.

Symbols and Winning Combinations of Money Track 2 Slot
Money Track 2 has a rich assortment of icons, starting with the symbols that boast their own payouts. The red character icon has the highest value, with max-wins netting a player their wager times 12.5. The purple symbol is slightly less generous with its 5-reel payout of 10x, while the green character symbol’s top win is 7.5x. The last character icon is the blue one, and scoring a full-reel win will result in a payout of 5x. The Ace and King symbols are the first of Money Track 2’s low-paying icons, and they both reward an individual with their bet times 2.5 when five copies land. The Queen, Jack, and Ten have the lowest payouts, and they range from 0.125x to 1.25x. We should also note that the Wild is also a paying icon, and it has the same values as the red symbol.
Apart from winning combinations containing five copies, players can also land wins whenever three or four identical symbols are matched on adjacent reels. The game pays from left to right, and there are 40 paylines.
On to Money Track 2’s unique icons, the Trains Symbol is this slot’s scatter. Other special symbols include the Train Heist icon, along with the Cash Bonus-exclusive Enhancers, and the Duff Train Symbol, which has no multipliers. Finally, we have the Wild, which substitutes for all icons but the Train Symbols. Wilds cannot land during the bonus feature.
Bonus Features of Money Track 2 Slot
In order to examine Money Track 2’s bonuses, we will first focus on the base game, as it boasts the Train Heist mechanic. Two symbols are tied to this feature: the Train Symbol and the Train Heist icon. The former lands with multiplier values that are added to the multiplier collection above the reels, and the multiplier count is reset if no such symbols appear during a spin. The Train Heist symbol, on the other hand, collects any thus far accumulated multipliers and pays out the total multiplier times the total bet.
Multipliers that are neither reset nor collected by the Train Heist icon are reserved for the Cash Bonus feature. This feature is triggered when one is fortunate enough to land six copies of the Train Symbol during the base game. It involves 3 complimentary spins, and the spin count is reset back to 3 each time the bottom row is filled with 5 symbols. All icons that appear fall to the lowest available position on their respective reels.
The Cash Bonus comes with Enhancer icons, which can land if unlocked. Enhancer icons have the following functions:
- 1st Enhancer – reveals a multiplier between x2 and x30
- 2nd Enhancer – reveals a multiplier between x2 and x50, adds its multiplier to any multiplier symbols positioned on the grid
- 3rd enhancer – reveals a multiplier between x2 and x80, doubles all multipliers on the layout
- 4th enhancer – reveals a multiplier between x2 and x100, collects all multiplier values present on the slot grid
During the base game, Enhancers are unlocked from Train Symbols, which grant 1 point each. It takes 150 points for the second enhancer to be activated, while the first one is unlocked the moment you start the game. Enhancers can also be activated during the Cash Bonus spins, and this occurs each time two rows are covered by symbols during a single spin.
Players who wish to immediately access the Cash Bonus can take advantage of the Buy Feature, which has the following offers depending on how much a player wishes to pay:
- 75x bet – activates Cash Bonus with 2 Enhancers unlocked
- 125x bet – activates Cash Bonus with 3 Enhancers unlocked
- 200x bet – activates Cash Bonus with 4 Enhancers unlocked
- 115x bet – activates Cash Bonus with a random number of Enhancers unlocked
Last but not least, Money Track 2 is among the Stakelogic slots that are a part of the developer’s Spin to Win™ progressive jackpots, and Spin to Win™ lacks a ceiling value. When active, the Spin to Win™ system will select a random reel spinner and lead them to the Spin to Win™ Live Studio. There, they will spin one wheel and land on either a cash prize section (between €50 and €1,000) or a “Jackpot” section. When the latter occurs, the player is presented with the second wheel, and by spinning the said wheel, they can win one of the following jackpots:
- Mini – €1,000 seed value, €5,000 max seed value
- Major – €5,000 seed value, €10,000 max seed value
- Grand – €100,000 seed value, €110,000 maximum seed value
Money Track 2 is a worthy successor to the original, and it also manages to stand out thanks to its unique aesthetics and the fact that Money Track 2 boasts an RTP of 96%, which is higher than the 95.80% of its predecessor. Players who enjoyed Money Track’s Super Stake™ mechanic, however, will be disappointed that it has been omitted from Money Track 2. Nonetheless, the game has kept the Bonus Buy feature, so those looking to quickly activate the Cash Bonus are still free to do so.
