At first glance, Reel Splitter looks like a simple fruity, albeit one with a glossy, futuristic look. Dig a little deeper though and this slot from Just For The Win and Microgaming is potentially much more interesting. The 4 reel game engine can expand to deliver a 5th reel with a re-spin. Look out too for the free spins round on the expanded 243 ways to win set complete with a stacked wild on the middle reel throughout. Play on all devices from between 10p and £100 per spin.
The design here is clean and crisp. The dark blue reels feature A to 10 royal values as well as cherries, kiwi fruit, plums and lemons. The Reel Splitter logo is the best of the standard symbols, awarding 1.5, 5 or 12 times your stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 on adjacent reels. There’s also a wild that replaces all other symbols. There are 2 features in Reel Splitter.
Reel Splitter Re-spin feature – most of the action here takes place on a 4 reel, 81 ways to win game engine. Land 4 of a kind winner though and you’ll trigger this feature. A 5th reel is added between reels 2 and 4. The 4 reels from the triggering spin are held and the 5th reel spins. This takes the number of ways to win up to 243 and can deliver even bigger winning combinations.
Free Spins feature – the second feature is activated by landing 3 or 4 of the Free Spins symbol on the same base game spin. You’ll then receive 8 or 16 free spins. These take place on the expanded 5 reel, 243 ways to win machine. Win both ways payouts are on offer here so you can start winning combinations from reel 5 as well as reel 1. Also boosting your winning chances here is a stacked wild that is locked in reel 3 throughout the feature.
The gameplay in Reel Splitter is fairly simple. The re-spins and free spins round can deliver some good action though thanks to the special extras attached. The overall variance is in the medium range with top payouts of 2,717.40 times your stake available on each free spin (with the 5 reels).
This variation on the classic fruit machine is neatly done. The design is sharp and the features offer something a little different. If you fancy playing a classic fruity with a twist or 2 thrown in, then Reel Splitter is a decent enough place to start. If you want something that has bigger potential wins, Just For The Win’s Rockabilly Wolves comes with potential payouts of up to 6,411 times your total stake on each free spin.
