GAME TEST / Royal Reels
event_note Published on 20 Feb 2017

Betsoft presents the shining red 5-reel, 3-row and 1 to 30 variable paylines slot Royal Reels with majestic prizes to be had of as much as 2,500 coins per active payline or €2,500.

Regal themed sights and sounds

The slot is designed well with a velvety red looking background with images of jewel encrusted crowns and marble structures. The symbols are simple and well-illustrated containing a diamond as the highest paying symbol, plums, cherries and the A, K, Q, J and 10 poker symbols. While none of the symbols reinvent the wheel it makes the slot simpler to play. Pressing one of the spin buttons triggers a short burst of baroque style music suitable for a royal theme and the game includes some standard sound effects.

Diamond wild, Pick Me Feature and Bonus Round

The slot includes some standard features starting with the diamond wild which has the ability to act as a substitute for all symbols except the Bonus Round and Click Me Triggers Feature. The Click Me Feature is triggered by the appearance of three or more gems pick me symbols on a payline and invites you to select one of them to reveal the coin prize hidden behind them. Alternatively, three or more crown symbols on a payline trigger the Bonus Round where you are invited to select from amongst crowns presented on an alternative screen to reveal your coin prize. The slot does not offer anything in the way of scatter symbols, free spins or gamble features.

Final thoughts

Payline wins are calculated with the number of coins indicated in the pay table multiplied by the bet per payline which maxes out at €1. Royal Reels has a theoretical return to player (RTP) of 95.5% with stakes that can vary from €0.02 to €150 per spin. Noticeably absent from the game was the Autoplay button which made continuously clicking the spin button a little annoying. The slot offers two Bonus features which are difficult to trigger because they require a payline win from left to right with corresponding symbols rather than the more common scatter symbols. The top payline win is 166x your total bet, with additionally impressive multiples of 100x, 67x, 33x, 25x and 17x. For the best chance, we recommend playing with all 30 paylines considering also that this slot is absent of help in the form of scatters, free spins or gamble features amongst others so you will more than likely need to count on multiple payline wins. As always, we suggest you play the slot for free before playing for real money to get a feel.
