Time to catch all the excitement of deep sea fishing with Microgaming Reel Spinner mobile slot.
Here’s one for all you gamblers who love to take your boat out into the open ocean and find those big behemoth fish down in the depths of the great blue.
Sure, that’s a very specific hobby that Microgaming games are appealing to, but on the other hand, seeing as they have one of the biggest selection of online slots, eventually you have to go niche.
It’s a shame then, that this Reel Spinner slot feels a little dated before it’s even out, with drawings of generic fish and fishing symbols that bring no real authenticity to the table.
At heart, this Reel Spinner slot machine is nothing particularly new to the Microgaming portfolio.
You get wilds and scatters in the base game, and some decent 5 of a kind wins.
The betting range is a little limiting however, only going up so far as 11.50 a spin, which won’t suit high limit slots players at all.
That said, there are some good wins to be found here, especially in the free spins where the multipliers allow you to get up to 1,000 times your bet.
When we first found out that 3 scatters trigger a mini-game where you can catch anything from 8 to 20 free spins, and a multiplier of 2x to 5x, we figured…
That averages out to about 10 free spins with a 3x multiplier… right?
Wrong. We’ve actually caught the 20 free spins and 5x multiplier on more than one occasion. In fact it happened often enough than when we didn’t, we felt a little cheated.
That’s because the bonus free spins is really where any decent wins come into play, due in part to those multipliers and that you get stacked wilds.
But those stacked wilds are no easy catch – you really have to fight for them in this Reel Spinner video slot, as you might get one or two stacks in 3 of the 20 spins.
The theme didn’t speak to us and the free spin feature, whilst giving us a decent 160x our bet, didn’t bring us as much excitement as we might have hoped.
The Reel Spinner mobile slot is really for those who dream of jumping on a boat and escaping out into the yonder blue.
Personally though, we think that the Alaskan Fishing slot by the same provider, with 243 ways to win, provides some bigger catches.

Wild Symbol: The Reel Spinner slot logo is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols on the screen, except scatter.
Scatter & Free Spins: 3 or more scatter symbols (the swordfish silhouette against a setting sun) triggers the free spins.
First, you'll pick from one of 6 boats to see if you get anything from 8 to 10 free spins. Then you cast your line onto the open ocean, to see which multiplier you win - from 2x to 5x.
The free spins are then played, with the added advantage of having stacked wilds.
It's not that this Reel Spinner mobile slot machine isn't any good, it's just that we've seen it done better many, many, times by Microgaming.
Not to mention that the niche theme will only appeal to a very small group of gamblers.
That said, the free spins are fun, but if stacked wilds, free spins, and multipliers are your thing, we'd recommend you play the Game of Thrones slot instead.
That said, if you fancy something a little less dangerous, Lucky Angler by NetEnt is the perfect frozen treat.
