Reel Spinner is a 5 reel, 15 payline video slot brought to you by Microgaming. Available to play across all compatible HTML 5 devices including laptops, Androids, iPads and iPhones, it can be played from as little as 15p to as much as £11.25 per spin.
The name is deceiving as it actually has a fishing theme where you get to feel the rush of open water wins. Based on deep sea fishing, symbols include a fishing boat, compass, fishing reel, a boat’s throttle and 5 different types of fish. They are all very colourful with the game having the open sea as it’s backdrop.
The wild symbol is the Reel Spinner logo which substitutes for all symbols except the scatter – it’s also the highest value symbol rewarding you with just over 133 times your stake for 5 on payline. The scatter is the swordfish in the sunset – 3 or more will trigger the Free Spins feature.
Firstly, you need to choose from the 6 different boats to determine how many free spins you will receive – there’s up to 20 on offer. Then you need to spin the fishing rod reel to reveal your multiplier – this can be anything up to 5x. If you’re lucky and get more than 10 free spins with a 4 or 5x multiplier, you’re in line for a big catch.
Once the free spins commence, you will notice that the wild symbol appears stacked to further increase your payouts. No more free spins can be won during the feature but there are wins of up to 10,000 times your bet on offer in the feature!
Reel Spinner is a medium variance game which is nicely balanced – the bigger wins will come in the feature naturally due to the potential 5x multiplier. Visually, it’s nothing out of the ordinary but it’s a solid offering from Microgaming. If you like the theme, I recommend Lucky Angler by Net Entertainment and Lucky Larry’s Lobstermania 2 from IGT.
