Reel King Slot
Reel King is a simple 5-reel, 20 pay line slot from Novomatic. Novomatic can lay claim to being the 'reel kings' of online slots, but is 'Reel King' the king of slot games? It's certainly an online slot with old-fashioned appeal, as all the symbols used are the kind you expect to see on traditional slots or pokies – aside perhaps for playing card symbols ten to king. The cards are joined on the reels by a cherry, a plum, some colourful number sevens and a couple of jackpot symbols.
There are twenty possible pay lines in total, and all are selectable so you can choose as many as you want to have in play with each spin. You can also choose your coin size from 0.01 all the way up to 20.00. Your wager is these two values multiplied. To win one of the jackpots on offer you need to land at least three identical symbols in sequence from the left-hand reel on one of your active pay lines. When you're ready to reel in some king-size wins, hit the 'spin' button.
Payout & bonus rounds
Payouts commence at 10x your bet-per-line for three cherries or plums, and rise all the way up to 500x for five 'jackpot' symbols. If you land a whole screen full of jackpot symbols you win a grand total of 4,000x your line bet.
The 'Jester's Hat' symbol acts as the wild symbol in this game and subs for all other symbols.
At the end of each spin there is a random chance that the 'Reel King' feature will trigger. When this happens the reel king himself will grace you with his presence, with a three-reel slot in his belly. This slot will mainly have 7s and black diamonds. You are awarded a number of free spins on this slot, and you win prizes each time you land three sevens the same colour, or one of each colour. As soon as you land a non-winning spin, the feature ends. Don't worry, the reel king does seem to be a generous soul.
So, is 'Reel King' the real king of online slots games? Well, unless you like very old-fashioned online slots that have a lack of features then probably not! Online slots have moved on a great deal since this game was released, so it's really only worth paying a visit to the reel king for a little bit of slots nostalgia.
