Microgaming release slots like clockwork, with several new games releasing each month. July is no different, with Microgaming having just announced their new slot, Reel Spinner.
We don't know the exact date that this fishing themed slot is arriving, but instead we finally have a name and a promo to give us a better idea of what to expect when it finally arrives. Let's take a look at what Reel Spinner is adding to the Microgaming library and whether it'll manage to stand out from the rest.
Reel Spinner Slot Overview
This is a basic rundown of what to expect from Reel Spinner:
- 5×3 reel slot with 15 paylines
- Free spins bonus round
- Additional multiplier feature
- Win a maximum up to £112,500
Reel Spinner goes for the traditional free spins mode to make up the bulk of its bonus rounds, but there's a few tweaks to add an extra layer of excitement. When you spin 3 scatter symbols, you unlock the free spins mode, but with 2 additional rounds.
In the first round you must click one of several boats in order to select how many free spins you'll be winning. You can win anything from 5 – 20 free spins, which will then be the number of free spins you get to play with in the free spins round.
The second round has you randomly spin a reel, that is actually the reel of a fishing rod (very clever), in order to spin your multiplier. You can win up to a maximum of 5x, with the minimum leaving you with just 1x, or simply just what you'd have won without the multiplier.
In this way, the free spins mode in Reel Spinner can be really good, offering up to 20 free
spins, with a multiplier to each of your wins. It's not the biggest revolution to a free spins round ever, but it is a nice addition that gives you a chance to make even bigger wins, at the risk of spinning fewer free spins.
Reel Spinner Releases This July
Unlike most other slot developers, Microgaming usually release multiple slots a month, which is great if you want quantity, but it does slightly hurt them when it comes to making their slots stand out.
Reel Spinner has a nice idea with adding multipliers to its free spin mode, but it is a feature we've seen before and doesn't quite stack up to other more interesting ideas that we've got to look forward to from other July releases.
You can find Reel Spinner when it releases during July, over at bet365 Casino, which hosts the entirety of Microgaming's library of slot and is powered by Microgaming's own software.
