If you were a fan of the old school retro fruit machines then Mecca Bingo's latest new slot may be of interest. It's called Reel King Free Spin Frenzy and it features symbols like plums, cherries and sacks of coins alongside the usual Ten, Jack, Queen, King and Lucky 7s.
Reel King Free Spins Frenzy is a 5 reel 20 payline slot from Novomatic. You can choose to play 1 to 20 lines and wager from 1p to £2 per line. The maximum bet available is £40. There's a top prize of x1000 for five wilds or five sacks of gold coins.
Game play is reminiscent of the pub fruit machine with the reels thudding into place on each spin. Simple "Vegas-style" music accompanies each turn although this can be switched off by toggling the music symbol at the top right of the game.
The free spin frenzy element of the slot comes into play when three bonus symbols appear on the reels. This results in a minimum of 10 free spins but the reels change. If a Reel King fills a column then you get a spin of a three reel slot full of Lucky 7s. Extra free spins can also be won during the bonus round.
Five stacked Reel Kings on the reels during the bonus round results in a bonus prize of x10000. We managed to visit the bonus round during our review trial and it resulted in 14 free spins and a handsome x37 win.
Another feature of the game is the 'Gamble' button. This is something that can be found on other slots such as Fluffy Favourites and Fluffy Too. After a win you can select 'collect' to take your win or risk it for double or nothing at the turn of a card. In the gamble section you simply choose whether the card to be turned will be red or black. Our advice would be to ignore this feature!
Reel King Free Spin Frenzy is available at a number of different sites including Mecca Bingo and Casumo. It's a decent game with few bells and whistles which we think is great. Playing takes you back to the days of the old school fruities and downtown Las Vegas and that is big plus too.
