Reel Spinner slot from Microgaming

Reel Spinner slot from Microgaming
Who doesn’t love fishing? Well, many people don’t like this predominantly male activity for various reasons. For all those who do, Microgaming released the Reel Spinner slot machine in 2016 and it has everything to reel in the gamblers who also love to cast a fishing rod.

Flashy Boats, Fishing reels, Clever Compasses and of course, various kinds of fish are used as the game’s concept, while good ol’ hard rock music increases the fun in Free Spins mode and adds just the right atmosphere to your fishing experience. You can almost feel the fresh sea air on your face and the wind blowing through your hair as you spin these reels, trying to catch the big one: 112 500 coins(!) - translated as 10 000x the total bet, via max bet. Imagine the fishing gear you can buy with that kind of cash. This huge catch is in your reach during the Free Spins where your wins can be multiplied up to 5x.

With its Medium Volatility and 96% RTP, the Reel Spinner slot machine is your chance to become part of the online “fishing for cash” community. So sit back, whip out your rod and check this slot first for free in the DEMO mode on our site. No registration required.

Personal testers’ opinion

  • The game has an elderly feel (even though only 5-6 years old), with obsolete sounds and hissing reels noise. There is absolutely nothing advanced here, zero distinctiveness, and all too familiar design-wise. Poor value for the premium symbols (the yacht at 66x and the compass at 33x the total bet for 5OAK), and extra poor for the rest of the icons. The Wilds do pay 133x the total bet, but don't come stacked in the main spins, nor do they double the prize of the lines where they substitute. The Scatters on the other hand do not pay for 2OAK, and for 5 of them you don’t get the regular 100x the total bet, but only 50x. All unimpressive: paytable-wise.
  • Gameplay-wise: unattractive as well. It gives the impression that you have a big choice of a number of Free Spins and a level of multipliers, but in fact whatever you choose the results are super unworthy. Our testers scored 152x the total bet, but only once, and all the other wins from the Free Spins brought the median win to 25x the total bet. In the bonus is supposed to be obtained the max potential of the slot (for a full screen of Wilds, plus multiplier x5), but naturally, the chance of that happening is equal to win the lottery (something like 1 in 14 million spins). So, the massive potential of 10 000x the total bet for the Reel Spinner online slot, appear realizable only on paper.
  • Generally, the underperformance is related to the cheap paytable and small numbers of pay lines, which obstructs large payments in the base game (where a large prize is often considered 10x the total bet), and the emptiness of most of the Free Spins (only 2 of 20 bonus spins usually bring good payout).
  • All summed up - boring and not a particularly open-handed game. The only good news could be that is simple - i.e. good for newbies, and keeps the bankroll for a long time (with minuscule stakes), i.e. good for bonus money wagering. For the games with real credits, however, we can only pass neutral advice, as there are other much more attractive and lucrative games nowadays from Microgaming and other developers.
