Reel King Potty is a Novomatic-powered progressive jackpot slot with 5 reels and 20 paylines. Playable from 20p to £40 per spin across desktop, mobile and tablet devices, the merry monarch returns and is in high spirits. The tubby king features in other Novomatic titles with Reel King the most popular.

When it comes to design, it’s identical to the original as you will see standard symbols 10, J, Q and K – you will also come across cherries, plums and sacks full of golds. The latter is the highest value symbol giving you 500 times your line stake if you manage to find 5 on a payline. The wild symbol is the jester’s hat which substitutes for all symbols on reels 3, 4 and 5.

When it comes to features, it’s all about the reels changing colour to trigger them. If you have 5 yellow reels in the same spin, you will activate the Reel King feature – the Reel King then appears over 1 or more of the reel windows spinning the reels within his belly. He stops the reels on winning combinations and the feature continues until you get a losing spin. Your reward can vary quite a lot as you can win between 5 and 500 times your total stake.

Then you have the Reel King Potty feature which is played when you get see 5 red reels in the same spin. The Pot King character spins his reels which will land on 1 of the 4 possible combinations – these are represented by progressive jackpots. You have the Bronze Pot, Silver Pot, Gold Pot and King Pot – the latter is a life-changing amount!

Now, if you have both red and yellow coloured reels on a spin, you will trigger both features described above with the Reel King Potty feature playing out first.

I really like Reel King Potty as it retains that land based charm and can deliver a life-changing progressive jackpot. I did find the Reel King feature to give you huge wins if you’re lucky as I’ve won 500 times my stake a couple of times now. That said, I found it to be a medium to high variance game which can blow out your bankroll pretty quickly – you need patience and luck! However, it’s game I recommend with potentially life-changing amounts to be won.
