Reel King is more of a Vegas style slot than a traditional UK style fruit machine but it has got quite a following due to the big jackpots on offer and the random Reel King bonus stage. The game uses a 5 reel, 20 line format and has a one coin per line maximum bet.
Unlike the game you would find offline where the top payout is limited to £500 you can win up to £200,000 on the online version. This is due to the much wider range of betting limits which start at 1p and go up to £20. This means you can play all line for as little as 20p or as much a £400. Obviously not too many players will bet £400 per spin but it is nice to have more choices.
On the reels you have eight different symbols with each of the symbols appearing stacked so you can get a whole screen of the same symbols. Wins for getting five of a kind range from X40 for five cherries or plums right up to X500 for five of the jackpot symbols or wilds. The top win of X10000 is won if you get a whole screen of either Jackpot or Wild symbols.
Reel King only has one bonus with is unimaginatively names the Reel King Bonus. This bonus is triggered randomly and awards between 1 and 5 Kings. Each king then has a smaller set of three reels with sevens, blanks and wilds on them.
Once won you press spin and the mini reels spin to award additional prizes. You get to keep spinning until you do not get a win so this bonus can award some serious winnings especially if you get five Kings on the screen. The pay outs for the mini reels are as follows.
- 777 (Red) : 500X Line Bet
- 777 (Yellow) : 200X Line Bet
- 777(Blue) : 100X line Bet
- 777 (Mixed) : 40X line Bet
The fact the the Reel King bonus can continue winning without costing anything for the extra spins is what makes Reel King so popular. The online version has a RTP of 94% which is virtually guaranteed to be higher than the RTP you would find offline. The wider range of betting limits also makes the online version of Reel King even better than the offline version.
