Exclusive to the Sky Vegas mobile Casino, will you defeat the pesky Baron Lightfinger for some superheroic wins?
We should start with the one thing that annoys us with this Reel Force Five mobile slot; at all times you get one of the four main characters sitting to the right of the five reels, distracting you.
How? By either looking like they are breathing heavily at best or, at worst, having rapey eyes as they molest the air with their hands (Once you see it, you can’t un-see it… Telektra…).
The thing is, we actually loved the comic book style graphics on the reels themselves. The symbols and backgrounds are beautifully done, and entertaining – almost as worthy of the other superb comic book slot Jack Hammer.
However, once we realised that we were nit-picking with the 3D graphics, we came to some important conclusions about this Core Gaming slot.
The reasons these character sit by the side of the slot’s reels, is that on any spin, they might decide to add extra wilds to them.
Our rapey friend Telektra changes symbols on the reels into wilds. Fireblaze throws fireballs and adds extra wilds and so on…
But essentially this is all for show, as each gives you up to three stacked wilds anywhere on screen.
Mostly, you’ll get about 10x to 30x your bet, but occasionally you get a bold 50 to 100 times your bet, which saves the Reel Force 5 slot game from being just another generic bank heist to your wallet.
So we’re not saying our superheroes on the right of the screen are useless. Only that they could have ‘appeared’ randomly, like in IGT’s Natural Powers slot, and still made it graphically ‘cool’. Especially as this bonus feature only hits once every 50 spins or so.
Here’s the nice thing about the free spins; you get a choice of five different options, and Sky Vegas casino even tells you which are the riskier option.
By that, they are simply saying ‘If you want to play it safe and definitely win something, pick the molesting Telektra’ or ‘if you’re after a win all or lose all game, then Herculeon is your man’.
From our experience, if you actually want to play is safe, choose Magnetron. He gives you the most value for money for your free spins, and we’ve won some pretty nice 60 times our bet here.
Otherwise go risky. No hero ever became a hero because they sat at home and had a nice cup of tea with grandma.
That said, be aware that the Reel Force Five mobile slot machine is here to entertain – much like your comic books of old. The top win is about 500 times your bet, so not massive, but will save your wallet from mass destruction.
Though perhaps not our favourite of the Core Gaming lot (that would be the highly amusing Cops n Robbers slot), we suspect we will be back when we’re feeling the need to have some easy spins, with the occasional high variance thrills in the free spins.
Plus, Telektra and her wandering hand is calling us back… so how could we resist?

Shows up often enough to frustrate your game from time to time, but not so often that it get's annoying.
Reel Force 5 mobile slot isn't a thrill a minute, but much like a good comic book, it also doesn't take that much time to get into it and feel very familiar.
Not to say it doesn't hide some pleasant surprises with your choice of free spins bonus feature and random stacked wilds that remind you why you were trying to save this city in the first place.
Money of course. None of this self-sacrificing hero crap.
It's entertaining and fun enough.
