Sometime in the future, one man is led down a dark path and destroys the future. Can you and your plucky band of superheroes save the world in this Arcane Reel Chaos mobile slot?
Arcane Reel Chaos is a 5 reel 3 row 20 fixed payline video slot where you get 4 heroes giving you 4 random features during the base game and a 4 level unlimited free spin bonus round.
If it sounds familiar it’s because you’ve played the South Park Reel Chaos slot some time in the past. NetEnt studios lost that license, and the game, so they created a brand new slot machine, with a new fun theme to fill in the gap.
Which means that if you’ve never played the original then you are in for a pleasant surprise because this is a fun low to mid variance slot game full of action and features.
The fun in Arcane Reel Chaos is the fact that on any spin, one of the four characters will pop onto these desolate reels and randomly give you a bonus.
Maybe Flare will give you a multiplier on a win, maybe Chronos will turn back time and give you free re-spins until you get a win. Or perhaps you’ll get up to 3 stacked wilds and up to 5 random wilds on the reels.
Either way, it’s lots of fun to watch and can give you some decent wins, because the multipliers you get here are respectable. Granted, getting more than 20x your bet isn’t easy, but with so many features you don’t mind as much.
So the frustration is that the way this slot sets up the free spins is that you have to defeat Deep Pocket to get big wins.
To do that, you have to get wins. Lots of wins. Mostly because there are four stages, and on each stage, you have to defeat Deep Pocket. Every win takes away one of his lives and every losing spin takes away one of yours.
The higher up the stages you go, the better the multiplier, and the bigger the wins. If you get to stage 4 you even get a little cash bonus. The problem is that you don’t get there very often, mostly because on each stage Deep Pocket gets his lives replenished, while yours don’t.
That said, if you don’t go in thinking you are going to defeat the Big Boss, you’ll probably get to spin around 20 free spins in this Arcane Reel Chaos online slot, and get lots of features whilst you play – a little like in their Koi Princess slot game.
No, it doesn’t have as big a wins as the Dead or Alive 2 slot, but it’s a little easier on the budget and you can still win over 1,000 times your bet.

Wilds: The 'W' card is the wild symbol and will replace any other symbol in the main game to substitute for all symbols.
Psyop's Stacked Wilds: Randomly triggered on any base game spin, you can get up to 3 stacked wilds covering the whole reel.
Flare's Multiplier: When the red-headed girl appears on the reels, you can get an x3, x4, or x5 multiplier on a random win.
Chrono's Re-spins: On a non-win game, Chronos may show up and re-spin the reels until you get a win. Better yet, for any non-winning spin during these mini-free spins, you increase the multiplier from x2 up to a maximum of x10.
Zero. X's Overlay Wilds: When this hero appears, you randomly get 3 to 5 random overlay wild symbols are created.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 bonus symbols anywhere starts the free spin round. Technically, these are unlimited, in as much as there's no specific 'end' to the Arcane Reel Chaos bonus games. But, much like these unlimited free spins bonuses, you get what you'd expect: something around 20 spins.
This is a 4 bonus like in the Steam Tower slot. When you get a win on a payline, you take away a life from Deep Pocket, the villain. If you don't, one of your 6 lives is hit.
You start with an x1 multiplier. Each time you defeat Deep Pocket, both your health meter and the multiplier increases by 1.
You characters show up more often, giving you special bonuses, and if you manage to defeat Deep Pocket, a bonus of 10x your initial bet per health point remaining is awarded.
We are glad the NetEntertainment brought out this Arcane Reel Chaos slot on mobile. It may not be original, but we doubt anyone knows the first South Park Reel Chaos game well enough to care as they opened up this post-apocalyptic world full of surprises.
The reels may feel a little small, but the animations and music are worthy of any of the NetEnt phone slots out there. The fact that you get 4 random features and lots of little wins help keep things moving and having a max win of 1,212 times your bet gives you hope.
The free spins bonus can be a little frustrating, especially as you rarely get to defeat Deep Pocket, so it starts to feel a little impossible. But if you look at the fact that you generally get at least 20 spins and wins of around 20x to 60x your bet... that's a good amount for a low to mid variance slot machine.
Maybe we miss the whimsy of the South Park slots, but to be honest, if you've never played them, you won't care and Arcane Reel Chaos is pretty enough that you'll be drawn into this superhero fantasy slot world.
