Every gaming software developer attempts to create online content that mirrors the experience of a Las Vegas casino. The casino gambling capital of the world remains the Gold Standard for slots play as its biggest draw. When an industry leader like Microgaming attempts to mirror Vegas, you know the game is going to be good.
As presented on the company website www.microgaming.co.uk, the latest offering Reel Splitter is a fresh take on a classic slot theme. Using traditional fruits as the primary symbols, this game is steeped with Las Vegas glitz and glamour. It is contemporary in its presentation with four reels and 81 ways to win. The game is also loaded with innovative features such as wilds, free spins and reel split respins.
The design is a throwback to vintage slots on the Strip that evokes the buzz and glamour of iconic machines. The classic design has been upgraded with a smooth audio soundtrack in collaboration with colorful fruit symbols.
A win that has four matching symbols offers a chance to activate the reel split respin feature. This causes an additional reel to enter the screen between the second and third reels. This boosts the game’s winning possibilities to 243x. The new reel spins once while the other four stays locked in position. This creates the potential for one or even several five-line combinations.
There is also a supercharged free spins round. This also offers the transformative twist to five reels and 243 ways to win. When a player lands three or four free spin symbols anywhere on the reels, the base game awards eight or 16 free spins. This opens the door to some high-value prizes. It also allows pays both ways along with a locked stacked wild on the middle reel.
Reel Splitter’s official rollout was on May 15 and it is now exclusively available to Microgaming operators.
