Hi everyone! If 3-reels slot games are your fancy, then you should give Tropic Reels a try. Comparing this game with the other 3-reelers from Playtech, I would say Tropic Reels is a better choice, not only in its game play but also in its graphics quality. But of course, we are talking about game graphics from decades ago, so we cannot compare them to Iron Man, Spider Man and whatever else Man of nowadays. Back then, these Hero-Men were all still sucking milk from a bottle! Hehehehe.
Tropic Reels is a 3-reels 5-paylines (or 5-rows) slot game which can be played with bets of 1 coin up to 5 coins per line. The coin values are from $0.01 all the way up to $1, so the maximum bet playable would be $25 (5 lines at $5 each). If you're a new player, or a not so-keen player of 3-reeler slots, then it's best to start play with minimal bets per line. Get to see how the reels are performing first. If they are paying, increase your bet size gradually and start praying! If they are devouring, keep playing small but keep praying! Hehehe. Needless to say, the bad times will end, sooner or later...then the good times will start rolling in. But if you don't pray, the good times may come in when you're not playing! Hahahaha. Tropic Reels uses a combination of images for its symbols, all tropical things no doubt, like pineapple, flowers, frogs, sliced fruits, parrots and the almighty tiger for its wild symbol. These symbols are nicely presented, still presentable in today's times, so playing Tropic Reels doesn't make you feel so old! Hahahaha. Which is kinda good in a way...because it keeps your spirits up...to enjoy the game better.
Unlike some other 3-reels slot games, Tropic Reels does not offer a bonus game. Instead, it offers several variances in its paytable, presenting more ways and chances of getting small wins. In fact, this worked out better than any of the bonus game alternative, which usually pays too small and too infrequently to be of any good. More ways of getting wins is a much acceptable strategy, keeping players reasonably happy over longer periods of time, whilst awaiting for bigger wins to come. This worked on me as well. In the game Triple Profits, for example, I had to deal with triple eyesores - looking at dull symbols, looking at low-paying spins, and looking at miserly bonus payouts too. I guess no player would be able to play Triple Profits for long stretches of time. It's just not interesting enough! Coming back, players are recommended to play Tropic Reels with maximum bets always. Why? Because 3 wilds would pay a beautiful 2500x the line bet at the maximum play of 5 coins, whereas it would pay a little less at 2000x the line bet for 1, 2, 3 or 4 coins played per line. Nonetheless, 2000x is much higher than the usual 1000x of other similar games, but why lose out on the 500x extra payout for playing short by just 1 coin right? Might as well go for the maximum play and maximum payout...or just stick to 1 coin bet all the way...if that can be fun to anybody, hehehe. If anybody wants to play 3-reels slots, then this is one of the games I would recommend. The payouts are better, the wins are bigger, and you don't get the eyesore either! ;)
