Graphics and Game Play
Reel Rush is set in a world of fantasy akin to that of the world of Super Mario Brothers, with a fun stylised and pixellated graphic style reminiscent of 1990’s video games. The game features a colourful background of bubble-like square trees and clouds, while the pay table is modern and opaque to match the game’s retro feel. The reel symbols in Reel Rush are all fashioned after fruits and sweets, with the larger fruit symbols resembling cartoon-like strawberries, pineapples, lemons and watermelons. There is also a video game-like soundtrack to add to the fun sense of the game.
The reel symbols in Reel Rush resemble orange, yellow, red, purple and green sweets, which pay out lower amounts. There are also larger symbols representing various colourful fruits, and these symbols offer higher associated wins when appearing in winning combinations. There are 13 of these colourful Reel Rush symbols visible on the reels at the start of the game, while the other spaces on the reels contain pale blue ‘R’ symbols. These symbols will become fewer as players land more winning combinations on the reels, and will be replaced by the fruit and sweet symbols.
The brown ‘Wild’ star is Reel Rush’s wild symbol. This symbol can appear randomly anywhere on the reels and substitute all other symbols to create winning combinations. Reel Rush does not include a standard scatter symbol.
Reel Rush Re-spin Feature
Reel Rush also includes an innovative re-spin feature. As the game begins, players will notice a number of pale blue ‘R’ symbols on the reels. As winning combinations are landed, 2 of these symbols will disappear after each win to reveal other Reel Rush symbols, increasing players’ ways to win from 135 on the first spin to 3125 on the sixth spin and helping to create as many wins as possible.
Free Spins Feature
With each consecutive win during the game, a row of 6 empty stars above the game reels will fill up one at a time. Upon reaching the 6th star, all of the ‘R’ symbols in the game will be cleared and players will be awarded 8 free spins as a bonus. In this way, this feature has replaced the scatter symbol feature that is commonly used to trigger online casino NZD bonus games in many online slot games.
Players should note that if a spin does not contain a winning combination, the reels and symbols will revert back to their original state.
