Reel King Slot

Reel King slot game is Novomatic’s most popular online slot. With a retro, fruit machine feel and an oddly mesmerising humpty-dumpty-like king protagonist, it’s easy to see why. Though Reel King is a 5x3, 20 payline video slots through and through, it has been bothered by pubgoers for years and could easily be an old fashioned 3 reeler. And if you are lucky and play long enough, the king himself may show up to unroll the holy scrolls as you watch guineas cascade into your purse.

Reel King Slot Background

Reel King has been present on video terminals for some time, like fellow Novomatic title Book of Ra, and Barcrest’s legendary Rainbow Riches. It is perfect playful fusion of old and new, featuring poker symbols, cherries, plums, and a jester’s hat wild symbol which substitutes for any other symbol. And then there is the Reel King, from whom the slot gets its name. But more about him later…

Slot Features

On Reel King, you can bet small or you can bet big; 1p to £20 on each of the 20 paylines. That means you can stake a maximum £400 and if you pull up an entire grid of jackpot symbols then you’d be looking at a stunning £200,000. Not bad for a day’s spin. The long term theoretical RTP (return to player) is 94.00% and malfunctions, freezes and connection cut outs void all pays and plays.

There is no Scatter Symbol per se, that needs to appear on a certain number of lines to trigger a bonus round. However, the Reel King (humpty-dumpty the Russian doll?) may appear at random, where you just had a winning or losing spin. This then triggers the bonus round.

Special Bonus Features

Depending on how many reel kings show up, scrolls will unfurl with mini reels. These reels contain mostly the classic 7 symbols, but in red, yellow, and blue. Then, these mini scroll reels will spin as long as they show 7s, with coins raining down each time that you win, with the retro plinky-plonk of cascading coins. The regal bonus round can pay anywhere from 5x to 500x the total bet, as much as the maximum jackpot symbol winnings. So even if you don’t hit a winning spin, you never know, the roly-poly reel king may save the day.
