Deep Sea Fishing is the basis of the Reel Spinner slot and the game was released in 2016 boasting a familiar 5x3 reel set up and there are a total of 15 paylines in play.
You can't select paylines, but you can alter the value of the coins you wager on each payline meaning you can wager as little as 0.15 per spin, or as much as 25.00 per spin, depending on your bankroll.
What do you get for your spend? Well the most immediately striking aspect of the slot before we even dig into the graphics and presentation, is the jackpot. There is an incredible top prize of 112,500 coins available to win and when you consider your coin value can be in excess of 1.00 if you wish to wager that much, then that is one big fish you could land if you get lucky.
In terms of presentation, Microgaming have made a decent fist of this. Gone are the usual playing card low symbols that tend to be on most games and in its place we have a host of different fishing themed items.
The higher value symbols are those to do with the boat and fishing itself, such as the reel, compass, throttle lever and the fishing boat itself, while the five different types of fish are the lower value symbols.
The biggest paying symbol in the base game however is the Reel Spinner wild symbol, which substitutes for all symbols bar the scatter and which can offer you a prize of 140 coins if you land three in a row, but it offers ten times that amount if you can land five in a row on a single payline.
The base game itself is enjoyable, although it isn't packed with many other features other than the Wild symbol. Wins tend to be a mixed bag, you get a smattering of lower value wins with some larger wins punctuated among them which help give the game better play value, but this is still very much a medium variance slot.
However, to trigger some of the bigger wins you need to play your way through to the main bonus feature, the free spins game. This is achieved by landing three or more of the Swordfish silhouette scatter symbols anywhere across the reels.
Land three and you receive a 21.00 bonus, four sees a 105.00 win and five sees a tasty 525.00 win, but in addition to this cash prize, you also now enter the Free Spins bonus round.
For the first part of this you must select from six fishing boats. Each boat hides a different number of free spins, so pick wisely and you could land the largest amount of free spins available. There are up to 20 free spins available to be won on this round, so pick wisely. Once you have selected your boat, then you then head onto the second phase of the bonus round which is where you spin the reel.
When you spin the reel, your reel will automatically spin through a number of different multipliers before settling on one. This is the multiplier that will be applied to all your wins in the bonus round. The biggest multiplier that you can land is 5x your standard win size.
After this has been completed, your free spins will then begin in earnest, but to help you land some of the bigger wins available, all the Wild symbols are stacked in this round across the reels, which can help you land some very large multiple payline wins and which, when used with a decent sized multiplier, can increase the value of your win massively.
Reel Spinner is a slot which offers a good combination of an enjoyable and fun base game, albeit with a mix of wins and occasionally, you can hit some leaner spins. However, when you hit the free spins bonus you can be rewarded with some massive wins which can more can compensate for the leaner times in the base games.
This is a bright and colourful slot that has a gentle soundtrack and which is set against the backdrop of the open sea, it is a perfect choice for those slot players who enjoy a spot of fishing alongside their casino gaming.
