Reel Strike

Play for real money

Fishing is one of the most relaxing and at the same time exciting activities one can do. The makers of the game at Microgaming incorporated exactly those two things into Reel Strike. Test the game here for free at AskGamblers.com, before you decide to invest your money and go for the jackpot.

Theme is mostly brown in the play mode, where the frame of the reels represent fishing rods; and mostly navy blue when in payline viewing. The music blends in the whole atmosphere of this slot, nothing out of the ordinary - the sounds of the waves plus the sound of the reels spinning. In case you prefer your own music, or total peace and quiet, there is a mute button in the top right corner.

This is a 5 reel, 15 payline slot, and all wins pay from left to right. There are plenty of fish in the sea, literally speaking: Yellow Fin Tuna, Red Snapper, Flying Fish, Barracuda as well as other fishing symbols.

5 Bonus symbols on any active payline trigger the bonus feature. When the bonus round activates you will see 6 boats on the screen and you need to pick two. One has the number or free spins and the other holds the multiplier value. Wins that are shown in the bonus game are already multiplied by the line bet, and bonus wins get added to payline wins. There is a Wild symbol which substitutes for all but Scatter symbol. Scatter wins are multiplied by the number of credits.

There are two variations of how you can play this game - the regular mode and the expert mode. When playing in the expert mode you are given the autospin feature where you can choose between 5 or 10 continuous auto spins.

How about you and me going out to the open sea, just the two of us, and do some fishing? Not doing something fishy, but just doing some fishing for fishes. Interested? Nah, hah? Gees! Honestly speaking, I'm not a fisherman, nor a fishing maniac too, so how about just spending some time together and do something fishy instead? Still no hah? Oh well, never mind. I'll do my own fishing then, all by myself. See what kind of fish I can hook up with my bait. I would prefer baiting up a 2-legged fish, but that's a different story. Hmm.

Anyway, are you ready for a Reel Strike? That's what this game is all about. It's an old game, released many many years ago, followed by a recent upgraded version in 2016, entitled Reel Spinner. The 2 games are basically the same, only the icons were upgraded a bit, but not a lot though, because the overall look still doesn't come up to the current expectations. Yeah, even the newer Reel Spinner couldn't be a winner. It still looks old, and plays old!

The Reel is the Wild symbol, 5 of which pays a very nice 10,000x the line bet, if you can get them. It substitutes for other symbols except for the Scatter and Bonus symbols, but doesn't do anything else. It's another dumb Wild symbol that doesn't pay for itself, it doesn't double any wins, and it doesn't become stacked, except in the Free Spins game. The Scatter symbol pays 50x the total bet for 5 of them, which is very low, and the Bonus symbol also pays 50x the total bet for 5 of them. Why need both, I cannot figure out. 5 Bonus symbols on any active payline triggers the Bonus Feature game, which is none other than picking a boat to reveal the number of free spins, then picking another boat to reveal the multiplier. Win up to 7 free spins with up to 6x multiplier, but more free spins cannot be retriggered. Shesh! What a lousy setup! As for the symbols, the logo 'Reel Strike' pays 1000x, the Boat pays 500x, the Lever pays 500x, and the fishes pay from 300x to 100x, all per line bet for 5 of each kind. Despite the good Wild symbol value, the overall paytable is still low.
Free Spins games have always been the biggest attraction in any slot game. Without it, the game might as well be dead. In Reel Strike, the Free Spins game awards only 7 free spins, which is damn low, with a random multiplier of between 1x to 6x. Well, nothing could be worse than that! Why? Because my first Free Spins game was only 7 free spins with a 1x multiplier! What the argh! There shouldn't be any 1x multiplier at all with only 7 free spins, which should start off with at least a 5x multiplier instead. As a result, most of the Free Spins games sucked, and into my deep freezer the game got tucked!

I found Reel Strike to be a very difficult game. We all know that when you gamble and the luck is not on your side you at least hope that you are not going to lose all of your money so fast. This game is not for those days. I know how exhausting it is to wait for the third scatter and then not get it. In this game, to open the bonus round you need all 5 bonus symbols on an active pay line. I did not have the chance to see that. While I was playing I did not even get 3 bonus symbols on a pay line.

This is 5 reel 15 pay line slot run by the Microgaming software. The first thing that you notice when you start playing this game is the watery soundtrack, which not only is relaxing but also makes a real effort to recreate a nautical atmosphere. Some of the symbols include the flying fish, a shark, a fishing boat, a throttle control and of course the game`s logo. The fish on a hook is the scatter symbol and the fishing rod reel is the wild and the bonus symbol is a propeller.

Very unusual thing in this game is that the wild can substitute for the bonus symbol. So this means that a bonus feature can be triggered by a combination which includes wilds. The free spins feature is triggered by landing five of the propeller bonus symbols but on an active pay line. I believe that every player is disappointed by this combination. And on top of all, the feature cannot be retriggered. Once you are in the free spins round you have to choose one of the six boats and they will determine the number of spins which can be between 2 and 7. Then you need to chose another boat for multiplier that goes up to x 7.

Reel Strike video slot was created by microgaming software, and it is another one very old game, which is really not so interesting, and much more better just read my review about this game than just download and play it yourself.

This game has 15 paylines, and therefore you can enjoy this game with 0.15$ bet only. Here we have wilds on all reels, and to be honest i am happy how the wilds do this, wilds have great payout, will pay 600 x total bet for 5 of a kind, and also it is very rare occasion here that wilds can substitute for bonus symbols, which should trigger feature. Also very rare thing is that you need only 5 bonus symbols to start feature, 3 or 4 will not work, and this is really unusual thing for microgaming software.

Also here is scatters on the reels, but they payout really low, up to 50 x total bet for 5 of a kind. Bonus game here is just typical and boring, but you really need it since it depends how much free games you will play, unfortunately maximum amount of free games is only 7, two times i trigger this feature i get 5, so i am not sure is this lucky picks or no. But listen what, free spins here has 6 multiplier, so if you hit something good during this up 7 spins, you should get nice win. From my short playtime at this video slot i can make decision that i will not play this game again. Strange bonus feature with low amount of free spins, bonus game which can be triggered only by 5 symbols on active payline. You should try this game, since it can be really interesting, but for me - not my cup of tea, such things happens, i just did not like, even without any reason.

Medium variance game, and everything here looks balanced and not so bad, but i did not like layout, and just did not like idea of slot, so i will not play it again.
Reel Strike is a game powered by microgaming. One of the stupidest game i have played on microgaming. Apart from its horrible graphics, the pays and the feature is very disappointing. I just dont know why? why would you make a game like this? There are 15 lines in this game and one feature.

This is a free spins feature and to get it this game does not require you to get three scatters it wants five. And apart from you needing to get five scatters they also have to be on an active pay line. I played this game on bets ranging from €0.15 to €0.60 and it took me ages to get the bonus. Once i got the feature my heart was beating so fast that i had to take a second to relax. I thought it was going to be something amazing. This was a pick bonus so i started picking. On my first pick i picked 3 and on second i picked 2x. In total 3 free spins with all wins doubled. At the end on the feature i won less than €1 and could not believe my eyes. I wasted around €30 to win less than €1? This is crazy. I played this game after that couple of times, each time not playing more than €10 and could not get the feature again.

These days i don't play it at all, I can also say that i will never play it again and i would not recommend it to my enemy. This game is a complete waste of time and money. If i was to rate this game i would give it 0 out of 10.
If you've played the slot Alaskan Fishing, then the game Reel Strike definitely is a suitable options as well. As long you're into fishes or fishing themes of course. Reel Strike has been developed my Microgaming and can usually be found at download casinos only. Platinum Play, 32Red and Crazy Vegas Casino are a few reasonable places to play this great game.

The game features several exotic fishes and a very unusual bonus round. I probably set a world record here by going more than 1500 spins without a feature lol. The only good thing about this is that it happened when I played it at the minimum bet of €0.15. Reel Strike has 15 paylines and 5 reels to form winning combinations on.

In addition it has scatter symbols which basically have no use, because you'll only win a prize when 3 of them appear and no free spins or bonus game will be awarded. To win free spins you need the bonus symbol instead.

However, please check the paytable before playing because accumulating free spins isn't an easy task. First time I played it I thought 3 bonus symbols would be sufficient. Well, it wasn't and when I checked the paytable it said that I needed at least 5 bonus symbols.

So 20 spins later I had 5 bonus symbols appearing on the reels, but wait a minute I don't see any free spins being awarded? I checked the paytable again and I see I forgot to read that it said they need to appear on an active payline as well lol. Luckily the wild symbol does replace the bonus symbol though to trigger the free spins bonus game.

It took me more than 1500 spins to make this happen though. I did however trigger them like 4 times in 100 spins after this. It just shows how crazy variance can be, and everything evens out in the end. It's one of the older Microgaming games you just need to give a chance, when you're tired of all those new games with lots of hocus pocus features.

Anyway, when you manage to get 5 bonus symbols with or without wilds on a payline, you trigger the bonus which can award up to 7 free spins and 6x multiplier. You have to pick two boats, one reveals the number of free spins and one reveals the multiplier. I never came any further than 6 free spins and a 5x multiplier.

Sometimes it pissed me off by awarding just 2 free spins and 2x multiplier. Not even my own personal belongings are safe when this happens lol. My average wins during this game is between 20x and 30x bet size with my peak being 120x bet size. Overall a lovely theme but the slot failed to produce huge wins for me most of the time though.

My final rating for Reel Strike is 7/10.

Reel Strike is a very old video slot appearing for 15 Paylines. It is a video slot for people who love Fish! For me this slot gets a random visit from me when I feel like going old school instead of going into slots with a modern touch! Sorry Thunderstruck II and Tomb Raider - Secret of The Sword, sometimes I want something less than great so that choice led me to Reel Strike.

What keeps me interested which I discerned to be very ridiculous but mostly I like the teaser is the bonus round. Don't be completely surprised about this bonus when you players hit this because when you do you will most likely find it unworthy...I'll explain.

The bonus round needs all 5 bonus symbols of fan blades on an active payline to trigger it. If it contains at least 3 symbols it would pay a small fraction like less than $0.60 for my 7 coin bets. The wild, ironically a big help to this slot, substitutes the fan blades too! The bonus is a very small " pick one boat for free spins and pick another for a multiplier " feature. The most to walk out of a feature is 7 Free spins at 6x, I however gotten 7 free spins at 5x as the best outcome. Each time the reels spun it produced good combinations! Every spin gives a "bonus win" so if a free spin contains no winning result I would have an extra win. I think it also pays regardless even on a winning spin. It is similar to that extra win found on Cashanova under the free range bonus. The total I've gotten on this feature contained $52 for me to collect. Extra wins, multipliers and good resulting combinations were working hard! I'd expect them to for....7 Free spins!

In the main game I've only gotten $14 for 5 fishes in a straight line. It was mildly pleasing! That is the only great things to expect in the feature! The not so great ones are if I trigger the same bonus and gotten 2 Free spins at 1x instead imao! (Laughing nonstop) This is what I call a priceless gem! Bonus wins, low amount of free spins & multipliers, a very annoying way to land all 5 bonus symbols on a payline but......small to reasonable payouts overall.

Reel Strike strikes fairly at 6 out of 10! Just "TRY" to find yourself to like Reel Strike...just....try!
