A simple slot game popular in pubs all over the UK and gambling venues in Europe, Reel King mobile slot keeps all it’s original features.
Reel King video slot isn’t snazzy. It doesn’t pop or dazzle. In fact, it feels just like any fruit machine that you’ll find anywhwere in the world where alcohol and gambling comes together. But, it is easily one of the most popular Novomatic slots, especially in Europe. And there’s a good reason for that. Partly it is because it’s a simple 5 reels, 20 payline game with familiar sounds and graphics. But mostly it’s because it’s fun, it has a decent jackpot you genuinely feel you can win, AND the Reel King feature sorta, kinda, gives you a slightly different take on the slots free spins bonus feature.
Fans of flashy games like the Aliens slot machine or the more volatile Book of Ra Deluxe might probably have to look elsewhere for thrills, but if you are intrigued by the idea of a 500x your bet jackpot then read on.
Usually we would tell you to read the bonus features section below to get more information, but we mentioned this casino game was pretty uncomplicated right?
There’s two ways to win the top jackpot amount here. You either get a screen full of jackpot symbols (unlikely), or you randomly get the Reel King symbol show up on your screen out of nowhere.
He can show up on any reel, on up to five reels. Each of the reels will then have a classic 3 reel little slot machine that spins for cash. The most you can win here is 500x your bet, but you’ll have to get all five reels with the little king in question for that to happen. Generally, one reel with one symbol will get you anything from 10x to 20x your bet.
The reason why this Novomatic slot didn’t get the full five stars from us is that the Reel King slot game feature, though it hits frequently, feels a little too random for us. A strange complaint you might think, considering we are talking about machines with random number generators, but it’s hard to get excited about a feature that comes will little anticipation.
There’s no ‘aaah almost got a free spins‘ or ‘it’s been 50 spins, I should get a free spin feature soon‘ or ‘the next free spin feature I am going to get is going to be awesome!‘ Yes we know most of the time this is our gambling instinct talking out of our anus.
But there’s a thrill to playing a game where you feel like you might just almost get that jackpot. That said Reel King slot machine is popular because of the fact that it pays well, and it pays often, so your budget doesn’t disappear in a black hole like so many other games are prone to do to make up for far larger jackpots (The Great Blue and Isis slots are two prime examples).
In short, with this slots low betting limit, it’s perfect for casual gamblers who still want to feel like they could win something big and play for hours at a time.

Wilds: The jester hat is the wild symbol, replacing all other symbols on the reels.
Jackpot Symbols: The highest paying symbols on an active payline, this sack of gold also pays the top amount of 500x your bet if you get all five reels covered with the symbol.
Reel King Feature: After any spin, at any point, you might get a little king show up on any one of the five reels. In fact, five kings could show up, which usually makes for some impressive wins.
These kings count as almost mini free spin games. In as much that each king holds a simple 3 reel slot machine in his hands, and will pull the handle to spin the reels full of 7 symbols.
The kings keep spinning and giving you cash for as long as you keep winning on these 3 reels. If you lose, the king goes away and you go back to the main game. Here's how it pays:
The most you can win is 500x your bet overall, though we consider ourselves lucky when we walk away with about 100x our bet.
With a low betting range and constant, frequent wins, Reel King mobile slot is a perfect machine to familiarise yourself with video slots or just want a chance at a jackpot that won't burn holes in your pockets.
It's not flashy and the graphics won't wow you, but it looks and plays perfectly as an Android slot or iPhone slot.
