Marvel at the magic in The Great Reveal, a 5 reel, 40 payline slot from Playtech – playable from 10p to £500 a spin across all devices, it comes with a Wild Reveal feature where you’ll benefit from wild reels for your next 2 spins. There’s also The Great Reveal Free Games feature where you choose from 3 options with up to 3 locked wild reels on each free spin.
Visually, The Great Reveal has a magic theme and looks superb – with a jazz/cabaret feel, you are taken to a magician’s stage where you’ll see A, K, Q and J royals as well as Aces, red roses, magician’s hat, glove and wand, white rabbits, white doves and the magician himself. He’s the most rewarding symbol giving you 5 times your stake for 5 across a payline.
There’s also a wild symbol that will replace any other symbol, bar the scatter, to give you the best possible winning combination. In fact, there are 5 wilds in play which each of them stacked 4 symbols high. 5 wilds on a payline will reward you with 10 times your stake. 1 more thing – wilds only appear during the 2 bonus features.
The Great Reveal comes with a Wild Reveal feature – you’ll notice 2 padlocks above every reel in the base game. When a key symbol lands on a reel with a locked padlock, a padlock will be unlocked. When both padlocks are unlocked, a wild is added to that reel for the next 2 spins. You can get multiple wild reels on every base game spin which is good.
The game is all about The Great Reveal Free Games feature which is played when The Great Reveal logo scatter symbol appears simultaneously on reels 2, 3 and 4. You then get to choose from 3 cards to reveal which option you’ll play – you can choose from:
- 3 free spins with 3 wild reels per free spin
- 6 free spins with 2 or 3 wild reels per free spin
- 10 free spins with 2 wild reels per free spin
You cannot retrigger the feature but every scatter landing during the feature will add 1 free spin to your tally. Personally, I would opt for the 3 free spins as you’re guaranteed 3 stacked wilds/wild reels on each of them.
The Great Reveal is a decent slot and is medium variance – you can win a maximum of 400 times your stake on every spin in the base if you manage to fill all 5 reels with wilds (from the Wild Reveal feature). It looks superb and has good bonus features – I just wish it had higher paying symbols to be considered a great slot. If you want a slot that has potentially higher payouts, Playtech’s Raiders of the Hidden Realm is highly recommended.
