About Reel King
The Reel King base-game uses a five reel, fifteen stop space format with twenty pay-lines. This is the classic slot set up and will be more than familiar to anyone who’s spent five minutes or more at an online casino. There’s only one special symbol in Reel King – the basic wild, which can help you greatly by substituting for symbols in combination.
Graphically, Reel King takes you back to the classic. You’re looking at a slot machine that uses fruit and poker symbols on the reels to make up the game elements, together with a special jackpot symbol that can really help payout the money, as you’d no doubt expect. All of this is set in a background that’s vaguely reminiscent of the French courts pre-revolution days – a time when casinos and gambling was rife in France. We do feel that in a way Reel King does pay a slight nod in that direction.
The sound on Reel King is very important as you’ll find out when we talk about the bonus game. This is definitely one game you won’t want to play on silent. Most of the time you’ve just got some spin and win noises, but when the bonus does kick in you’re played a kind of baroque court music that fits so well with the theme of this machine. Hats off to the developers here as they’ve done a really damn good job.
So what do you get in the Reel King bonus game? Well, first up this feature has what we believe to be quite a unique activation methodology. As you stop in the reels, if you hear five incremental tones (this is why you’ll definitely need the volume up) then you’ll be in for some super cash pay-outs from the bonus feature.
Here the bonus symbols between one and five reels are replaced with Reel King mini slot machines that have the power to pay-out big prizes. They’ll keep on cranking until you hit a non-winning spin on their reels and then they’ll disappear.
