Microgaming Launches a Cool, Feature-Packed Classic-Themed Slot Reel Splitter
- May 15, 2019 By Oliver Young -
Microgaming has launched yet another incredible slot game developed by Just For The Win game studio. Thanks to their exclusive content supply deal, the developer and the game studio have managed to deliver so many great games, including the most recent release Rockabilly Wolves.
The newest addition to Microgaming’s extensive slots portfolio is called Reel Splitter, a classic-themed slot game which offers several special features and huge payout potential. The game uses the ways-to-win mechanics, so even though at first you can see 4 reels and 81 ways to win, the number of ways to win can grow up to 243, thanks to the additional reel awarded via one of the bonus features.
Classic Meets Modern
In case you were craving for an old-school slot, but you would want to play one with improved visuals, enriched with special features, Reel Splitter is the game you should try. Although a classic-themed one, Reel Splitter is greatly modernized, presenting the theme from a different perspective. The developer has used pastel colour palette to portray the symbols. What you usually see in classic slots are sparkling symbols, flashing lights and visuals that try to get your attention. In Reel Splitter, you get a non-invasive setting with a calming tone, and you will soon realize that you have missed that in classic slots.
Other than the standard Plums, Cherries, Lemons and Kiwis symbols, you will find the Reel Splitter Logo as the highest-paying symbol, the playing card Royals as the lowest-paying ones, and the Wild and the Free Spins Scatter. The symbols pay from left to right, on consecutive reels.
The Wild is the symbol set on a purple background with light-purple stripes, which replaces for all symbols except for the Scatter. The Wild has the ability to appear Stacked, and when it does, it contains 3 Locked Wild symbols. The Scatter does have that Las Vegas feel since it has little light bulbs on the sides, but these bulbs are not overwhelming at all.
During the base game, should you score a winning combo with 4 symbols, you will get a chance to trigger the Reel Split Re-Spin bonus feature. This is when you get 1 reel added between the second and the third reel. It is during this feature, thus, that you get up to 243 ways to win. Only the extra reel spins during the Re-Spin, while the rest of the reels stay locked. Should one or more symbols form a combo on this reel, you get a payout.
You trigger the Free Spins with the aid of the Scatters. For 3 Scattered Free Spins symbols you get 8 Free Spins, while for 4 Free Spins symbols you get 16 Free Spins. During the Free Spins, the middle reel becomes a fully Stacked Wild. You get winning combos by landing 3 or more symbols in succession from the left to the rightmost reel and from the right to the leftmost reel.
Old but Gold
Maybe an old-school-themed slot, but who says that it isn’t a highly rewarding one? For a betting range that goes from 0.10 to 100 credits and the 243 ways to win, the game can deliver a payout of more than 2,717x the stake! The developer has set the average RTP for the game, of 96.02%.
If you’re a fan of the theme, the slot is the perfect classic machine for you, available at all Microgaming-powered casinos. Reel Splitter offers impressive visual design, awesome features and incredible payout potential, so basically, you get everything that you’ve ever wanted from a slot.
