Reel King online features crisp 5×3-pixel icons, portraying plums, cherries, 10, K, J and Q just like the original version. The interface is quite intuitive, allowing you to set your bet per line, or just let autoplay run your luck. The paytable is accessible at the bottom of the interface, and will show you all winning combinations in detail.
The total amount of lines is shown on the sides of the slot, and you can also set how many lines to run. Lastly, keep an eye on your credit, which is displayed on the bottom left-hand side.
Winning combinations include any 3-5 symbols listed above in one of the 20 lines, appearing from left to right on adjacent reels. There are no hold or nudge features in the game and no there are no scatter symbols included. However, the Jester Hat wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols to help create a winning combination. Maximum jackpot is £200,000, with a minimum bet of 1 pence, and a maximum bet of £20.
As mentioned, the player can choose how many lines to activate, and exactly how much to bet on each line. This is all done in the interface, and it is easy to figure out how. All bets and bet-per-line are displayed on the screen, at the bottom of the UI.
Reel King features a bonus “gamble” round, where you hit the “Gamble” key of the interface as a golden bar on the screen flashes on and off. If you manage to hit “Gamble” at the moment the bar is lit, you double your initial win.
Another fun bonus feature is the “Reel King” feature. Up to 5 Real King characters appear randomly on the screen at the end of any round. Each Character has its own mini, 3 reel slot, with different combinations of 7. Three red 7’s pay the most. Players can play the mini slot until a no-win combination is hit. In addition the, the “Gamble” features is available also after these bonus rounds and players can double gamble their winnings.
There are no free spins or multipliers included though, but as mentioned the RTP is quite a bit higher than in casinos or bookies.
All in all, Reel King online is a worthy incarnation of a popular favourite in casinos all over the world.
