The classic fruit machine gets a futuristic makeover in Neon Reels, a 5 reel, 25 payline slot from iSoftBet. Featuring stunning visuals, it comes with re-spins, free spins, wild multiplier wins and a progressive jackpot feature. Playable only on desktop devices, take a trip from between 25p and £125 per spin.

The first thing to note about Neon Reels is that it looks spectacular – set against the a night time cityscape backdrop, the symbols spin on a cylinder shaped set of reels. Look out for beautifully crafted, neon style playing card symbols alongside lemons, cherries, sevens, bells, lemons and a wild. It all looks spectacular with the neo-noir feel enhanced by the brooding soundtrack. A gold star for iSoftBet then for the look and sound of Neon Reels. How do the features stack up?

Pretty well as it goes. There are 3 main features on offer. Land a pair of diamonds on reel 1 and you’ll be awarded a pair of respins. During these respins, the diamonds from reel 1 will be frozen in place, as will any wilds that are on the reels. Yes, it’s only 2 re-spins but if the wilds fall nicely, some big payouts are possible here.

Land 3 or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels and you’ll trigger the Free Spins feature and be given 10 free spins. The wilds come to the fore during the free spins, offering multipliers if they form part of a successful combination. A single wild in a winning payline will see that payout doubled. Two wilds and it increased to 4x. Land three of them and it increases to an impressive 8x. You can re-trigger more chunks of 10 free spins if the scatters hit during the feature too.

Finally, there’s a progressive jackpot element – to land the biggie, you need to find 5 of the Hot Jackpot single in a single payline while playing at maximum bet levels.

In Neon Reels, iSoftBet have created a cracking little slot – it looks and sounds terrific and offers an array of features to match. The re-spins come along at regular intervals and though a little hit and miss can offer some tidy boosts to your bankroll. Likewise, the free spins are where the coins can really start to flow if you get lucky with the wilds.

If you want the familiarity of fruity symbols in a completely fresh setting, then rev up your engine and take these Neon Reels for a spin. It does remind me a little of NetEnt’s Starburst which isn’t a bad thing. I also recommend you play Mega Boy from iSoftBet which will take you back to the 90s.
