Reel Strike slot was created by Microgaming, it is a recent release of theirs, and it will offer an ocean fishing themed game. The action inside revolves mostly around the oceanic fish that can be caught by someone that goes out on a boat. Some interesting features are part of it, including the bonus game, but there are also regular ones, like a scatter or a wild symbol. The slot gets you only 15 lines, they have 5 reels behind them, and winning combinations can offer up to $50,000.
Betting and Prizes
With a below average number of lines, 15 of them active, Reel Strike has for you the option to select only some of them, should you want to. I’d recommend you keep them all in play though. You may spend anywhere between 1 and 10 coins for each line wager, while their individual value will go up to $0.50. Spending up to $5 per line means that the total will get up to $75.
There is a very good top payout that you can win here, worth 10,000x, and giving you up to 100,000 coins. If you went with the largest coin value possible, you can expect a payout of about $50,000 from this slot.
Reel Strike Slot Features
One of the three special Reel Strike symbols seems to be used only as a trigger for a cash prize. The Swordfish scatter will do that, giving you 2x, 10x or 50x the total bet, if you have 3, 4 or 5 of them in any position.
The wild does a little bit better, being your way to the slot’s biggest prize, of 10,000x. To get a prize directly, you just form a combo out of wild symbols, the ones which have the fishing reel as their image. The thing that sets this wild apart is that it can substitute for bonus symbols as well, not just regular icons. The scatters are the only ones which can’t get its help.
Speaking of Bonus symbols, those have to form a combination on an active line, but luckily they can get help from the wild. You need five symbols of this type on a line, to activate the bonus game. Payouts of 5x to 50x the wager are offered for 3 to 5 symbols.
The bonus game which triggers, will have you select a fishing boat with which to go out on the ocean, and then you will reel in a fish. The first stage of the feature will give you up to 7 free spins, while the second stage will pick for you a multiplier which goes up to 6x.
Theme & Design
The game is entirely themed, it’s a new release, and it offers at least decent graphics. You can expect most symbols to have fish in them, the kind that you would find in the ocean, so saltwater types. The graphics look OK, nothing to complain about, but nothing to write home about either.
Reel Strike machine should be an adequate title to play for someone that loves actual fishing, and the features and payouts look very good also.
