Slots players in the UK can dive deep below the waves and go hunting for hidden underwater treasure courtesy of Reef Run, a new ocean-themed slot from Yggdrasil Gaming that has just gone on general release.
Like most slots in the Yggdrasil Gaming catalogue, there are few causes to grumble as far as the sound and visuals in Reef Run are concerned. With an underwater city in the background you’ll see a selection of brightly coloured sea creatures spinning around the reels in this 5 reel, 20 payline title. The best of these is the bright green puffer fish who offers awards of up to 50 times your stake per payline.
The undoubted highlight here is the Free Spins feature – landing 3, 4 or 5 of the free spins scatter will get you 10, 20 or 60 free spins. Re-triggers are possible too. In fact, landing just 2 scatters will see another 2 free spins added to your total.
There are plenty of extras on offer during the feature too in the form of multiplier prizes. When you win with a specific character symbol, it will ‘level up’ and in the process increase the multiplier payout next time you form a winning combination that includes that symbol. It starts at 1x before increasing to 5x, 10x and finally up to a massive 20x!
In the base game you can also opt to activate the Golden Bet – this will set you back an extra 5 coins per spin. In return, there’s a special extra feature added whenever you trigger the Free Spins feature.
In this Reef Run, you choose 1 of the marine creatures who takes part in a race. If your creature is awarded the most coins during the free spins, you can look forward to a mystery prize of between 400 and 25,000 coins!
This underwater real might look rather tranquil but we found these waters to be relatively choppy on the volatility front. We’d put the variance in the medium to high range.
The base game action in Reef Run isn’t the most exciting you’ll come across. There’s plenty of potential excitement on offer when you trigger the Free Spins feature though, especially if you’ve activated the Reef Run extra.
It’s not the flashiest Yggdrasil Gaming slot you’ll see either in terms of design or features. It’s still very easy on the senses though and can certainly pack a payout punch. If you fancy some simple oceanic adventure, then Reef Run is well worth a spin – check out the Reef Run slot review for more details.
