Reel Strike is a fast-paced online slot game produced by Microgaming, with a deep-sea fishing theme. This slot game is now a little dated but offers a delightfully relaxing play session, as you hear the soft splashing of waves and fishing boats bobbing up and down. There are 5 reels and 15 pay lines within this nautical game, with the reel symbols each having some connection to the theme.

The top-paying symbol is the game logo; the Reel Strike icon with a fish in the centre. This will award 1000 coins for 5 of a kind on an active pay line. This is followed by the fishing boat, the control and a selection of tempting fish.

The sunset icon is the scatter symbol and any wins forming from this will be added to pay line wins. There is a wild symbol too; this substitutes for all symbols except for the scatter (including the bonus symbol). The blue propeller symbol is the bonus, and the main aim of your game will be to land 5 of these on any active pay line, in order to win free spins. This may sound like a near impossible task; however, it isn’t as difficult as it sounds, as the bonus symbol lands so frequently, and there is also the chance to complete the lines using the substituting wilds. Should you manage to activate free spins, you can win up to 7 of them. Your task will be to select a boat, which will determine how many free spins you have won. Your next task is to select another boat, which will reveal your multiplier value for the duration of the free spins game. This can be anything up to 6x. Free Spins cannot be retriggered within Reel Strike.

Verdict

As already stated, the game appears a little dated now – although it does offer a great theme with colourful graphics and animations. I expected that triggering the bonus game was going to be a harder task than it actually was; and once triggered, I enjoyed the Pick and Reveal rounds to determine how lucrative my bonus game was going to be. I had a great time playing Reel Strike and particularly enjoyed listening to the soothing sea soundtrack.
