With Reel Rush, online casino solutions techno-wizards NetEnt have come up with a unique set-up that puts this game in a different league to other video slots. Against a backdrop reminiscent of Princess Bubblegum’s realm of Candy Land from Adventure Time, with sweet, edible fungus and trees, the format is 5 reels, 5 rows, but the game opens with an unusual geometric configuration of symbols, with 1 symbol on reel 1, 3 on reel 2, 5 on reel 3, 3 on reel 4 and 1 on reel 5, for a total of 45 payline combinations. The rest of the spaces are occupied by a blue rectangle with the letter R.
This situation soon changes, however, as Re-Spins and Free Spins open up more symbol spaces, eventually resulting in no fewer than 3125 ways to win in Free Spins – which really increases your chances of netting the maximum possible single payout of 480 000 coins. Bet levels vary from 1 to 10 and the coin value ranges from 0.01 up to 0.20. The maximum bet is 100 and the Return To Player is 97%. You can play Reel Rush online anywhere as it is optimised for desktop and mobile gaming and compatible with iPhone and Android platforms.
The symbols in Reel Rush consist of a set of hard fruit candy in different colours – a Bonbon, Plum, Grapes, Watermelon, Lemon, Pineapple and Strawberry in ascending order of value, with the Strawberry paying out 1000x stake if you hit 5 on a payline. The Wild – a golden wrapper with Wild written on it – appears on all reels except reel 1 and substitute for all other symbols.
It’s a lot of fun to watch the fruit cascading down the reels accompanied by a lively Nintendo-style soundtrack and popping bleeping sound effects reminiscent of old-school video arcade games. The way the payout numbers shoot up from the bottom of the screen like a Space Invaders anti-alien laser cannon only adds to the effect.
What makes Reel Rush a firm favourite among our Vegas casino online gamers is the inordinately large number of ways to win generated by the special features. The first of these is Re-Spins – which kicks off with your first winning combination. Yes, any winning combination from any base game spin sets off an additional spin – and every Re-Spin gives you more ways to win by opening up the inactive spaces on the reels. As a result, the number of ways to win bumps up to 135 with the first Re-Spin, then 405, then 675 and 1125, to finish on 1875 ways to win in total.
After that, things start moving at warp speed – when you complete five winning combinations in a row and activate a fifth Re-Spin, you get 8 Free Spins with a massive 3125 ways to win big! The way the music speeds up to celebrate your success will also give you a real rush.
