Reel Splitter Slot Machine
Try Microgaming Slots
If you're nostalgic about the good old classic slot games, but you would like to see one with improved graphics design and massive payout potential, you should definitely try out Microgaming’s Reel Splitter. It is a classic-themed slot that offers special features, 81 to 243 ways to win and significant rewards.
The Wild in the slot is presented on a purple, glittering background with light-purple stripes. It is the symbol that will help you form winning combos as it will substitute for all standard symbols, but not for the Free Spins Scatter symbol. The Wild also appears Stacked, and when it appears Stacked, it contains 3 Locked Wilds.
Considering the Ways-to-Win mechanics, you should know that symbols pay in any position, as long as they land from the leftmost to the rightmost reel position.
Now, during the base game, you can trigger the Reel Split Re-Spin feature. You will need to score a win with 4 matching symbols in order to get a chance to trigger it. During the feature, you get 1 extra reel added between the 2nd and the 3rd reel. The Re-Spin actually spins only that extra reel, while all the remaining reels stay locked. If one or more symbols on this reel form a winning combo, you get a payout. It is during this feature that the ways to win can grow from 81 to 243.
Should you land 3 or 4 Scattered Free Spins during the base game, you trigger the Free Spins bonus game. You get 8 Free Spins for 3 Scatters and 16 Free Spins for 4 Scatters. During the bonus game, the middle reel becomes a Stacked Wild Reel. Wins are paid out here if 3 or more symbols appear in succession from the leftmost to the rightmost reel or vice versa.
Theme & Design
Reel Splitter is a nicely designed slot, one that actually presents the classic theme from a different angle. Not sure why exactly, but the game seems so calming, sets a relaxing tone and is not at all overwhelming as most classic slots are, with flashing lights all over, too many visual effects etc. No, Reel Splitter is the type of classic slot which uses pastel colours, and the only two symbols that glitter slightly are the Wild and the Scatter, of course, as the most important symbols.
Other than the two of them, you will see the game’s logo as the highest-paying symbol, then you will see symbols such as Lemons, Cherries, Kiwis and Plums, which also have a shy shine, and the playing card Royals presented in different colours as the lowest-paying ones.
Wagering & Paylines
The game initially offers 4 reels, but thanks to the Reel Split Re-Spin feature, you might get the 5th one. That is why the number of ways to win grows from 81 to 243. The betting range is quite straightforward, from $0.10 to $100.00, and the RTP is the average one, 96.02%.
As stated in the paytable, your wins are calculated by multiplying the total bet by the symbol win multiplier. So, for the max total bet of $100.00, you could win 12x the stake for a 5-of-a-kind combo with the Reel Splitter Logo symbol, which translates to $1,200.00. The Lemon, being the second-best paying symbol gives you 8x the stake, meaning $800.00. With the Stacked Wild, the huge number of Free Spins and the Respin feature, the game can deliver more than 2,717x the stake payout overall. This means that this classic slot game gives you the chance to pocket more than $271,700.00!
As always, Microgaming has delivered another excellent game. Reel Splitter is the perfect classic slot to try if you’re a fan of the theme. It offers special features, an amazing payout potential and an astonishing visual design. It is like no other classic slot game you’ve tried, so it really deserves your attention.
