Reel Steal Slot Review
Jump into the gangster-inspired video slot game entitled Reel Steal from Netent, and you’ll definitely come to appreciate the life of a criminal. The game is backed by some very Mafia-style music, and you’ll see that the icons included in this game are all very much theme-related. The five standard symbols are represented first of all by the safe which is overflowing with gold bars, and then by the bag which is stuffed full of dollar bills. Next up, you’ll find a briefcase which has small, precious diamonds inside it, and this is joined by the icon of a camera and blueprints. The fifth one is of a revolver, passports and getaway car keys. There are also five character icons, all members of the Mafia mob.
A total of five reels and three rows have been incorporated into the game, and Netentertainment have also added nine separate bet lines as well. You do have the option to customise these if you’d like to, simply by using the ‘Bet Lines’ button. In addition, you can adjust your wager placed between its minimum of £0.09 across all nine lines, and its maximum of £45. This is altered by using the bet level and coin value sections of the game.
The specialities of this game are what make it great, and these start with the wild symbol, which is represented by the yellow getaway car. Wilds will substitute for all other icons on the reels in order to form a win, with the only exception being the scatters. Any wins featuring this icon will also offer a pay out of times five. During the freespins round, they’re multiplied by times 25.
As far as the scatter icon is concerned, this is represented by the stack of dynamite, and wins from this symbol pay out your total bet multiplied by up to times 100. Three or more scatters activate the freespins round, with 15 being provided for three scatters. Should you spin four in to view, you receive 20 freespins, and five scatters offer up 25 freespins. Wins during the freespins round are all multiplied by times five.
Reel Steal offers up a nicely themed game with some fairly average special features as well. It’s not one of Netent’s best games, but it certainly makes a welcome addition to the developer’s portfolio.
