Reel King Free Spin Frenzy is the 3rd Reel King slot to be produced by Novomatic. This instalment has 5 reels and 20 paylines and can be played from 40p to £100 per spin across desktop, mobile and tablet devices. With a Royal theme, it’s all about the odd free spins feature – join the jolly monarchs to get their riches.
Appearance wise, it has the same graphics and animations as its predecessors meaning they have an appearance of a classic fruit machine. Not as graphically sharp as newer, high definition slots, symbols on the reels including playing cards, cherries, plums and sacks of coins. The jester’s hat is the wild symbol which substitutes for all symbols except the scatter – it’s also the highest value symbol giving you 25 times your stake for 5 on a payline.
When it comes to bonus features, it’s all about the Free Spins feature which is played when you get 3 bonus symbols anywhere on the reels. Firstly, you will receive a cash prize of 2 times your stake – you will also get 10 free spins.
Not like traditional free spins features, Reel King Free Spins Frenzy has a Reel King symbol on each reel, on each free spin. If it lands fully stacked, you will get a Reel King Spin – the mini reels spin giving you combinations of 7s. You can up to 25 times your stake for 3 red 7s. It gets interesting if you get 2 or more stacked Reel King symbols:
- 2 stacked Reel King symbols on a free spin will give 2 additional free spins and 2 Reel King mini spins
- 3 stacked Reel King symbols on a free spin will give 5 additional free spins and 3 Reel King mini spins
- 4 stacked Reel King symbols on a free spin will give 10 additional free spins and 4 Reel King mini spins
- 5 stacked Reel King symbols on a free spin will give 25 additional free spins and 5 Reel King mini spins as well as a 250 times stake cash prize.
The Free Spins feature may sound a little complicated but in fact it’s quite simple – you will only win from the Reel King mini spins though. I’ve managed to get 45 free spins in total with a total win of just over 230 times my stake. I consider it to be a medium variance game with balanced payouts throughout. Overall, it’s a decent game but I do prefer the original Reel King which is a classic.
