Reel King will be familiar to a lot of Brits who go to the bookies and play
the machines - and now it's available online with a 94% expected return! At
first glance it looks pretty plain, the only real notable feature being the
stacked "Jackpot" symbols which, when lined up can be lucrative. However the
"excitement" - for want of a better word - in Reel King comes in the feature
that appears somewhat randomly, although a Jackpot symbol needs to appear on
reel 1 for it to stand a chance of occururing. This basically brings up a mini
Reel King game, where you get a "streak" of winning combinations using coloured
7's as symbols. The streak ends when a blank reel comes up. Very nice - and unique
among all the fruit machine games here at GFM.
The only thing I would add is that if your PC isn't the most capable, Reel King
can run quite slowly, although I admit that having played this for a while and
having gotten some pretty hefty wins, I can live with that! Definitely one of the
better fruit machine online ports IMO.
The Reel King fruit machine is made by Astra who in turn are a Novomatic company.
Novomatic have also started to bring some of their other popular slot games online including
one of my own favourites, the Book Of Ra and
the popular Columbus slot machine. Check
Ra one out if you haven't already...it's old-skool but the bonus feature is superb. Way
better than Reel King IMO.
