Reel King Slot

Reel King is another one of those popular slots you find in bookmakers around the UK. It's probably in the odd casino too although I've not spotted it yet and I've been into a few in the South East.

Reel King falls under the Novomatic banner, a company that also make the excellent Book Of Ra Deluxe and games like Columbus Deluxe, Dolphins Pearl, Gryphons Gold and Rich Witch. Not all the Novo slots are online yet but Reel King is one of the ones that are and can be found at G Casino (Grosvenor Casinos) and Sky Vegas.

In my opinion, Reel King isn't a great game when you compare it to some of the other slots above but, like Rainbow Riches, it provides that bridge between traditional fruit machines and the increasingly popular Vegas-style slot machines. It also has an unusual bonus round which is randomly triggered.

The feature is kind-of-like a free spins bonus only it isn't. Well, it is, sorta. Any number of the 5 reels (randomly) will reveal a small 3-reel fruit machine and each will continue spinning until it hits a losing combo. Sometimes you get unlucky and only one reel reveals the fruitie, spins one or two wins in and ends, however I've regularly seen winning streaks that pay handsomely.

And of course, unlike the land-based versions you get in the high street, there is no maximum-win cap in the online version! Needless to say this means the expected return for the online version of Reel King is higher than the land-version as you probably guessed and is set to 94% at the casinos mentioned above (checked, May 2011).

Reel King is not one of my favourite slots as you may have guessed - I just don't get the same level of excitement from it as I do with "free spins" games like Thunderstruck or Pharaohs Fortune - but I can see why it appeals and it is perhaps a little easier to profit from.


You can play Reel King slots at the following safe casinos:

Star Games

Star Games (Novomatic) - If you like Novomatic slots like Book Of Ra then Star Games has the lot. This is a Novomatic shop window and the interface is very good but customer support and cashout times could be improved, sometimes taking several days.


BetVictor (Aristocrat, IGT, Microgaming, NextGen, Novomatic, Barcrest) - Although the layout of the slots could be improved, BetVictor casino's slots offering has one of the best choices for slots players out there and includes games from IGT, Novomatic, Aristocrat and Microgaming among others.
