reel strike slotReel Strike is one of Microgaming’s older slot games but it still can be found at some online casinos. This title is all about the common pastime known as fishing, featuring various fishing equipment and game.

The slot comes with 5 reels and 15 paylines where winning combinations can be formed. Up to 10 coins can be wagered on each payline with a value between 0.01 and 0.50. As a result, the maximum bet that you can place can go as high as 75.00.

Special Symbols

When the reels start spinning you will notice the plethora of symbols that will shine before your eyes. These come in the form of various types of fish and the equipment used to catch them. Most of these are basic symbols that have no direct impact on the game. But there are also several other symbols that serve a special purpose and deserve to be mentioned in detail. The Wild symbol is a common staple in the vast majority of slot games and it is present in this one also. It is represented by a fishing reel and it can replace any other symbol on the paylines, with the exception of the Bonus and Scatter.

The Bonus symbol takes the form of a boat propeller and it can trigger a special feature. Last but not least, the Scatter is a special symbol in the sense that it can form winning combinations in any direction. Typically, every other combination in the game pays only when it starts from the leftmost reel, but the Scatters are unique in this regard, as they can start in any direction.

Bonus Rounds and Features

The Bonus Feature in this game can be very rewarding if you are lucky enough to trigger it. This is done when you hit 5 Bonus symbols on an active payline. You will be taken to a different screen where you will get to choose one from several boats. Depending on your choice you will earn a number of free spins. After that, you will get to choose again one boat out of several, which will decide the winnings multiplier that will be applied to the free spins. This feature, while interesting in concept, is badly designed. It is highly unlikely that you will hit 5 Bonus symbols at once, let alone on an active payline. Had the number of paylines been higher it could have been feasible, but with only 15 of them, the chances are quite low.

Conclusion

Reel Strike is not a game that we can recommend to anyone. While the theme may appeal to a certain demographic, the rest of the game has nothing substantial to offer. There is only one feature worth discussing but it is one that will rarely occur. The overall design of this game is questionable at best. We cannot even excuse its shortcomings because of its age since there are plenty of great slots out there that are as old or even older than this one. When all is said and done, Reel Strike is a bad game with precious little to offer even to casual players. You would do much better playing something else.
