Reel Strike

Microgaming

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.

DISLIKED

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.
