Reel Rush Slots

Your immediate impression when you enter Reel Rush slot is that it looks almost like The Candy Crush Saga game. With boiled sweet symbols and fruits that resemble characters from a story book. Although there are the standard five reels in this game, it has a diamond shape to it and not all symbols appear on all of the five reels. This makes a refreshing change to the game-play, and gives you different ways to win. As you would expect from a NetEnt game, the animation and graphics are smooth and very professional. The biggest attraction of all in this game is that there is the possibility of more than 3000 different ways to win.

This review gives you an overview of the Reel Rush Slot game. Below you can first find info on the basics of the game – including bet levels and those all-important winning combinations. The bonuses and special features are covered in the section below that, including the potentially profitable free-spins feature. Finally I have summarized the key points on this game, and where it fits in the varied world of NetEnt slots.

How to Play Reel Rush Slot Game

Reel Rush has the unique diamond shape combination of symbols that you don’t see very often on other online slots. There are 5 reels and 5 rows for you to play with and many of the symbols are hidden and only revealed on wins.

The first thing you should do before beginning to check out the payable as it is a little different to other types of slots. Then you should have a go on the free game to get a feel of how the game works. Once you have done this you are ready to play for real. The coin values range from 0.01 to 0.20 and you can play on 10 levels. The minimum bet is $0.50 and goes up to $100 making it a game that is within most players’ budgets. Now you have chosen your coin value and level you can start your game by clicking the ‘spin’ button.

The symbols in this slot are very simple without any special animated features. The lower paying symbols are boiled sweets of different colors; red, orange, yellow, green and purple. All of these symbols payout the same. If you get 3 matches it pays 5 coins, 4 pays 15 coins and 5 pays 50 coins. The higher value symbols are all fruits; a strawberry, a pineapple, a lemon, a melon, a bunch of grapes and a plum. These symbols only pay out the same on 3 matches but all other matches above that vary with the strawberry paying 1000 coins for 5 hits.

In the main game you start with the diamond shaped reels and if you match symbols the shape of the reel will change revealing two more icons, increasing the number of ways to win and you get an automatic free re-spin. Altogether you can get up to 5 re-spins after each of these the number of ways to win increases. The aim is to get as many consecutive wins as possible to reveal all of the hidden symbols.

In Reel Rush there is not a scatter symbol, which means that the wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols in the main game and in the free spins games. The wild symbols can also act as multipliers increasing the chances of bigger wins. The wild symbols can appear on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5 in the main game and in the bonus game.

Reel Rush Slot Free Spins Feature

To activate the free spins feature in Reel Rush is no simple task. You must get 5 consecutive re-spins after which the free spin round will be activated and you are awarded with 8 free spins. During this round you will be playing with 3125 ways to win and a possible 480,000 coins up for grabs if you are lucky. After all of your 8 free spins are used up the game will return back to its diamond shape.

Reel Rush Summary

This slot requires a lot of patience if you are waiting for a big win. Although winning combinations trigger the re-spins, if there are not consecutive wins the game will always go back to its starting layout and you have to start again to get to the bonus re-spins going again. During the main play of the game winning combinations don’t pay out so much but are frequent enough to keep you going. If you manage to get enough re-spins and hit the bonus free spins feature then you can pick up a tidy sum of money. The game is a high-variance slot and does make a refreshing change from the 5 reel 3-row video slots which dominate the scene nowadays – definitely one to check out.
