Detailed Reel Strike Review
If you have played some of the IGT designed slots such as the Siberian Storm slot, then you will know that the way in which the bonus game triggers on that slot is by you spinning in a bonus symbol on each of the five reels.
There is a quite similar playing structure in place on Microgaming’s Reel Strike slot for when playing this slot you are required to spin in a bonus symbol on each reel but they all have to land on an activated payline.
As such the Reel Strike slot can often be a slightly annoying slot to play as you may only get four of them landing on a payline and as such will often get quite a lot of near misses in regards to not triggering the bonus game when playing the base game!
However, do not let that put you off playing this slot for even though it has been around for many years now and may not be as high tech as some of Microgaming’s other slots, it can be a slot that will give you an enjoyable slot playing session, as you will find out below!
Bonus Games, Bonus Features and Special Reel Symbols
You are probably very well versed in playing video slot machines on which free spins bonus games can and will be triggered however if you are looking for a slightly different slot offering such a bonus game then the Reel Strike slot may just be the slot for you!
One thing that does appeal to players of this slot is that there is no way of knowing in advance just how many free spins you are going to get to play off until you play off a two stage picking game.
You will however first need to line up from left to right and on any of your activated paylines all five of the bonus symbols, however the wild symbols can and do also stand in for those symbols, so triggering that bonus game may not be as hard as it sounds!
Once triggered you have to first pick off from the bonus game screen one of the six Boats displayed don it and by doing so you will then reveal just how many free spins you will be bout to play off. You then also need to pick another one of the Boats on the bonus game screen to find out what multipliers will be attached to each of your awarded free spins!
Our Opinion of the Reel Strike Slot
The random way in which the free spins are going to be awarded to you when playing the Reel Strike slot form Microgaming will either appeal to you or not, however this slot is always worth playing when you want a more unusual type of playing structure.
Plus, you are not going to find a huge number of paylines on this slot a you have just found out so it could be a good slot to get stuck into playing when you want to have just a small number of lines activated to allow you to keep your stake levels low. But all in all, everything consider it is a no nonsense type of slot that will not take a long time for you to get used to playing
Whilst you may have found everything about this slot to your likely there is a slight downside to playing it and that is Microgaming have not given it an overly generous payout percentage, and as such always keep in mind that the Reel Strike slot will return over the long term 95.01% of your stakes.
