When it comes to the design of the Reel King Free Spin Frenzy slot machine, it features a royal theme throughout. The logo sits to the top of the reels and has golden crowns either side, behind your reels is a rather magical design, which doesn’t really fit with the theme of the game.
The design almost looks like something from a children’s fairy tale book. There are houses with glowing lights and magical splashes of light being thrown from the houses and into the air.
Symbols on your reels are; cherries, plums, golden sacks of coins, red 7’s, yellow 7’s, blue 7’s, 10, J, Q, K, a joker’s hat plus the mascot king with his little reels – this is the Reel King.
Push the Button
Starting the reels in motion is simple, just click the menu button to the right of the reels and you will be shown your betting options. There is a section for lines and then for your bet per line. If you want to bet the maximum of 100.00 a spin, you don’t have to press the buttons numerous times, just click that bet max meter to the lower of the menu.
You can view your current credit, last win and bet to the lower of your reels. The paytable and sound options can be found under the menu button too.
Three symbols award the maximum potential jackpot of 25x your stake, these are 5 of a kind of the golden cash sacks, the joker’s hat (wild) and the red 7’s. When you are betting maximum, this 25x jackpot will give you a nice little win of 2,500. The second highest paying symbols on the reels are the K and yellow 7’s, both offering 1,000 for 5 of a kind.
Spinning Good Features
Reel King Free Spin Frenzy slot machine’s main feature is the free spins, when you spin in 3 or more of the scatter (Bonus) symbols on your reels you will trigger 10 free spins. During your free spins, if the Reel King himself makes an appearance and covers your reel, you will be awarded an additional spin on his mini reels.
Every time your reels feature a Reel King fully in view, you will be guaranteed a win – his little reels will spin and this is where your free winnings come from. The amount of free spins you receive during the free spins mode goes as follows;
- Two Reel King symbols fully in view will award 2 additional free spins and 2 more mini spins on his reels
- Three Reel King symbols fully in view will award 5 additional free spins and 3 more mini spins on his reels
- Four Reel King symbols fully in view will award 10 additional free spins and 4 more mini spins on his reels
- Five Reel King symbols fully in view will award 25 additional free spins and 5 more mini spins on his reels – plus 250x your stake!
You are only guaranteed wins when you spin the Reel King’s mini reels – not on the standard free spins.
The joker’s hat is the wild and will help to complete winning paylines, as it substitutes for all other symbols on the reels except for the scatter.
Sliding wild – Not only is the mad scientist a wild, but the magnets that appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 are also wilds. When the mad scientist is featured on reel 1 and other wild magnets on your other reels, they will turn into sliding wilds. All of the magnets on your reels will be attracted to the mad scientist and will move one reel to the left, to hopefully complete other winning combinations.
The gamble feature is the standard gamble game that you find with all Novomatic slot machines. Any reel win will allow you to gamble for more cash. Choose red or black to be the next card – guess right to double your cash, guess wrong and you lose.
Novomatic have steered away from the usual slot machines by creating the Reel King series of slots, quite a bold move but one that’s paid off. The maximum non-progressive jackpot may seem small change, but maximum bets will turn that into a nice little sum.
We found the game to be very exciting and the additional free spins on the mini reels were very thrilling indeed.
