All of those experienced fishermen hoping to reel in some capital catch this summer will be glad to know that the newest product from Microgaming’s creative kitchen, called Reel Spinner, is about to be released this July.
The reels are set on the open sea, with nothing but a blue sky, fishing rig and stacks of fishes surrounding you. If you are looking for the capital catch in this five-reel slot with fifteen fixed paylines, you might prepare suitable bait for hooking the Swordfish, since this species is crucial for triggering the Bonus round that might reward you with some hefty payouts. The 2016 release seems to house some simple yet colourful graphics and an interesting soundtrack that completely follows the theme.
What We Love
Judging from the brief preview video, we do believe that the good people from Microgaming did a swell job concerning the Bonus round, since it offers a bunch of free spins, stacked Wilds and Multipliers.
The Bonus round is triggered by three Swordfish Scatters landing anywhere on the reels, giving you the chance to win up to 20 free spins by choosing one of the six boats anchored in the docks.
After you done the picking, you will have to pull out your fishing rod and spin the reel in order to win up to x5 multipliers of the initial bet. When all of that is done, simply wait for the Swordfish Stacked Wilds that may reward you with up to $112,500, which is the highest possible payout in this slot, unless this is one of those colourful lies experienced fishermen tend to tell after a slow day on the water.
Playing cards symbols are nowhere to be seen on the horizon, since Microgaming payed much attention to details and used authentic symbols such as six different types of fishes, and some necessary fishing equipment all fishermen need in their rig. The soundtrack offers a catchy rock tune that adds to excitement during gameplay.
What We Do Not Like
Bearing in mind that fishing is a sport of patience, we do not expect gamers will reel in big prizes as often as expected, since it may take you a while before discovering the perfect bait for those rewarding Swordfish Scatters, so we do not reckon those who are looking for quick payouts will enjoy this Microgaming product. Also, many players have remarks on the quality of graphics in Microgaming slots in general, so it will probably be the case with Reel Spinner as well.
Despite the fact that Microgaming products do not offer top-notch graphics, we do believe Reel Spinner will offer a proper adventure to all fishermen that enjoy video slots, with a Bonus feature packed with action, stacked Wilds and some decent multipliers.
The maximum possible payout of $112,500 is tempting enough, but we fear such a capital catch will demand long hours out on the open sea. Nevertheless, we do not think the 2016 release will leave gamers heading to shore empty-handed, so you might expect some lucrative payouts, especially during the Bonus round.
