The Reel Steal slot
If you like movies about risky and daring robberies in which a lot of money involved, or you want to flee the police at least once in life - that means NetEnt has developed The Reel Steal slot for you. The machine is made in the spirit of a gangster theme. Do not miss the opportunity to break a big jackpot and fill your pockets without fear of persecution. The winning percentage (RTP) is set at 95.87%, and the maximum winning per single spin is 375,000 coins. On this page, you can play the demo version of this slot machine for free.
Personal review of the tester about The Reel Steal slot
Despite low RTP declared by Netent (95.87%) this game is still popular among the players due to its massive potential of the winning. The Reel Steal, has a low rating for completing the wagering requirements - 2,81 out of 10. My maximum winning during the testing was 1 500x. The frequency of hit is 22.20%. Only a quarter of the spins will be successful. The free spins feature is triggering with a probability of 0.77% (statistically, every 130th spin). If you like games with huge winning potential, then you should try DOA, Wish Master, Creature from the Black Lagoon or Jack and the Beanstalk slot machines too.
Review and recommendations from the testing team
- In the main game, the slot rarely gives out winning combinations due to a small number of playing lines (there are only 9). The developer does not highly price winning combinations of three and four symbols without multiplier x5; and because of this, the slot has poor balance keeping.
- The slot tries to give out free spins feature quite often. Sometimes it gives them out in series with a small number of spins between the series.
- In the free spins feature, there is no additional feature, the spins are no different from the main game, except that the scatter symbol gives re-triggers, and the wild symbols appear more often.
We would not recommend playing this slot for the bonus money, due to poor balance keeping, but if there is a large bet balance (300 or more), and on the condition that the slot will often give out free spins, you can play a part of the bonus money. When playing for real money, we would recommend having a large bet balance, since this slot rarely gives out a big win from the first spins or first bonuses and more often requires a long game session.
