This Reel Rush 2 mobile slot is a real rush as you watch those reels expand and get more bonus features than ever before.
The sequel to the original Reel Rush slot, NetEntertainment studios have not taken away what made the original game great, simply added a few extra surprises.
So the theme here is similar, with blocky fruits and background making you think of video games of old (you know, the one with the plumbers. Let’s not get into a lawsuit here).
It’s fun, it’s quirky, and it’s been modernised to appeal to everyone who loves colourful fruits and mobile gaming. In short, this is still a wonderful theme.
The mechanics, at first, also seem similar. You start with a 5×5 grid with blocks covering half the reels, giving you a starting point of only 45 ways to win.
With every win, however, you get a free re-spin of the reels and blocks will be removed. If you manage to remove all the blocks (usually 5 wins) you open up a 3125 ways to win slot machine.
Here’s where things start to divert. Now you also have a train on the bottom of the reels giving you a whole host of bonus features to spice things up.
From multipliers on certain symbol wins to extra wilds, to guns literally breaking down blocks for you, every spin is a little more exciting thanks to this bonus train.
Whilst we couldn’t wait to trigger the free spins in the Reel Rush 2 online slot, here this feature loses momentum.
The joy of the original was watching those reels open up, with 5 free spins, and then getting 8 more on a 3125 ways to win game with 5 reels and 5 rows of a colourful symbol.
And whilst you can do exactly that here, you’ll be hoping you don’t, at least not until you have a bigger collection of tokens. These you collect every time you destroy a block or on the train.
Because with 2,000 tokens you unlock the Super Spins, with huge multiplier giving you hope to win that top win of 6,250 x your bet. Suddenly, the normal free spins just won’t do.
This didn’t kill our enjoyment of the Reel Rush 2 slot game, but it definitely kills that joyous rush we felt in the first game where you didn’t have anything stopping you from enjoying each and every little win.
A good sequel just didn’t quite nail it as they did in the Dead or Alive 2 slot.

Increasing Ways to Win: You have a 5x5 reel set, which is partly covered with non paying symbols, giving you 45 ways to win. On every win, however, those symbols uncover and you get more ways to win, until you uncover all symbols for a maximum of 3125 betways.
Random Features: There's a train at the bottom of the reels which can bring anything from 1 to 3 special feature on each spin.
In the base game this includes:
In the free spins, they also add:
Super Tokens: You get tokens each time a block is unlocked - between one to five. You can also get token on the feature train or buy tokens in the gamble feature.
Free Spins and Super Free Spins: When you open up whole board, you trigger the free spins.
At this point, you can take 8 free spins and enjoy 3125 ways to win for all of them.
Or, if you've accumulated 2,000 tokens, you can buy super spins, which gives a progressive multiplier that increases each time you get a win or get a multiplier increase feature.
Or, if you haven't accumulated 2,000 tokens, you can spend a little extra money and buy the rest of the tokens to take you to 2000 and trigger the super spins.
Or, depending on how many tokens you've got, you can gamble to trigger the super spins on a wheel of fortune. So 1,000 tokens, for example, will give you a 50/50 chance wheel of getting the super spins.
The joy of the original Reel Rush is all here, from the ever-increasing ways to win to the manic high-octane respins, to the pretty video game graphics.
We loved that NetEnt added the extra bonus features, it gives a whole new dimension to this Reel Rush 2 slot on mobile.
Unfortunately, it loses a star in our books by making the free spins just a little more complicated than they need to be, where you either have to spend more money to get the better feature or (worse) gamble and lose it all.
Still, that's not to say that you won't have fun, as we did, and that this is one of the better NetEnt mobile slots.
