Summer has already started with the temperatures rising up and so is our desire to get away somewhere and start the summer holiday. If you are attracted to the great blue and the fishing rod, then Reel Spinner will make that getaway desire burning even more.
The theme of the game is deep sea fishing and we are sure, once it goes live, many fishermen around the world will give it a go and try to reel in some big win. It has many high detailed fishing symbols, along with some decent animations, making Reel Spinner the perfect fisherman game.
Reel Spinner is powered by the great software provider Microgaming. Their video pokie games have a very big number of loyal players and that is one of the main reasons why Microgaming is among the top software providers in the world.
We can’t say that the theme for Reel Spinner is original, because Microgaming has an older similar pokie game in its offer, but a few small modifications are enough for this pokie to stand out.
How to Play
Reel Spinner has only 15 active pay lines, 5 reels and 3 rows. This is more of a classic design for Microgaming video pokie games and it’s been a while since a new game of theirs has shared the same design.
The pay line number is fixed, making the minimum bet size on Reel Spinner $0.15, while the maximum can go up to $11.25. We expected to see a bigger bet size than this, but thanks to the overall game design, players can win a big amount of money, even on such a relatively small bet size.
Reel Spinner has only one classic bonus round in the form of a free spins bonus. It is triggered by landing 3 or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, which means it’s time to go fishing. Instead of installing a classic free spins bonus with predetermined values, Microgaming decided to add a little twist to the feature.
Players have to make 2 choices in the bonus in order to get the number of free spins and the win multiplier. First the player has a choice of 6 fishing boats in all shapes and sizes and has to choose one. This reveals the number of free spins which can go from 5 to 20. After that, while the catch is reeled in, a multiplier number on the fishing rod reel is awarded.
The multiplier in the free spins can go from x1 up to the highest x5. The best combination, of course, is to find the 20 free spins and the x5 multiplier.
With this half of the journey towards the big win is completed and from there on it’s all a matter of luck. What makes this feature even more interesting is the wild symbol in Reel Spinner. It can come stacked on all reels and can cover the entire reel making it definitely needed to provide a big payout on the screen.
We were surprised to see that Reel Spinner has a maximum payout of 10,000 x total bet or $112,500 for the maximum bet size possible.
This is due to the high x5 multiplier in the free spins and the stacked wilds across the reels. Compared to most other video pokie games in the industry, this is more than a great win to chase, considering the maximum bet size of $11.25.
With Reel Spinner, Microgaming is trying to remind us that there are other fish in the sea. Any loyal Microgaming pokie player will narrow down his choice to only a dozen games that are played on a regular basis in Microgaming casinos.
Reel Spinner is just as good as any of the top video pokie games from this provider and we are sure it will attract a lot of attention once it goes live. The free spins bonus has a big payout potential and is attractive because of the unknown values that can be revealed.
You can win a big number of free spins and a small multiplier or the other way around, but in one bonus feature the big fish will come and make the effort worthwhile. Hopefully we will see some screenshot of that elusive 10,000 x total bet payout in the near future.
