Reel King is a 5 reel slot that you can choose to play at between 1 and 20 paylines on, this means that by also altering your bet per line you can spin for as low €0.01, the maximum amount you can bet is €40. I tend to play Reel King at either €1 or €2, but there are plenty of other options to choose from that will be in proportion to your bankroll
The paytable is shown above so you can check out the value of the symbols, back in the day on the land based version, it did love to roll in a full screen of jackpots, never had that on the online version unfortunately.
You can gamble any wins that you may get on the gamble ladder, I've mentioned this in my review on Captain Venture, but it's definitely a more exciting gamble feature than choosing either red or black on the cards.
GAMBLE LADDER ON REEL KING SLOT
REEL KING scroll FEATURE
REEL KING SCROLL FEATURE
During your gameplay you will notice that on occasion as the first reel lands it makes a ding sound, what you are hoping for to happen is all five reels to make the ding sound as they land. If this happens then between 1 and 5 scrolls will appear, each scroll will have a Reel King fruit machine on it.
The dream here is to get all 5 as it can pay the jackpot, but more often than not you will just get 1 or 2, if one of the fruit machines rolls in a dead spin, then that section will stop, the others will carry on until they too roll in a dead spin and then that is the end of the feature.
If you fancy a gamble this can be a good way to get a decent starting point on the gamble ladder, the amount at the top should be looking fairly tasty as well.
REEL KING SLOT REVIEW FINAL THOUGHTS
For anybody who was playing in the 2000's Reel King will always be a classic, it's a very basic game but for me it's still as enjoyable as when I first played it in the arcades. It's a great feeling hearing 5 dings and hoping you're going to get all 5 scrolls, and it's a role reversal when you get the first 4 dings and get let down on the last reel.
Slots have come along way since Reel King, but it still seems to hold its popularity with a core of players, most AGCs in the UK still have some version of this game.
I can't say I play this game that much now as there are some other great slots out there, but if I'm in a reminiscing mood when I'm playing slots, Reel King always gets a good few spins.
