Review of Reel Rush 2
Theme and plot of the story
Developed by NetEnt, Reel Rush 2 is a Candy Crush clone that has been modified to the style and shape of a slot machine. It makes use of the same adorable rounded pictures that were used to capitalize on the popularity of that hugely addicting social media game.
You’ve probably already decided whether or not you like that particular style. Alternatively, if it is something you can tolerate.
As far as knock-off games go, it seems to be a horrible idea to constantly remind gamers of a superior game that they might be playing for free, but that is just my opinion.
Graphics, sounds, and animations are all included.
However, although Reel Rush 2 attempts to capture much of Candy Crush’s tackiness, it manages to replicate very little of the latter game’s fun. Whereas Candy Crush’s brilliant boiling sweet rainbow was sickeningly sweet, this slot’s sickeningly sweet design is just sickening.
The reels are a washed-out blue, and the symbols are a drab assortment of bright colors. The animations, on the other hand, are rather impressive, and they breathe new life into an otherwise stale design.
In addition, the sound design contributes to the improvement of the visual. A positive vibe emanates from the slot when the bloops and pops are heard. The music works well with all this. The positive features, on the other hand, are hauling a dead weight upward.
Reel Rush 2 has a few unique gaming mechanics up its sleeve that you should check out. Despite the fact that it starts off as a 1-3-5-3-1 pattern slot, when the player wins, the reels expand in size with each subsequent respin. Examples include a 3-3-5-3-1 pattern for the first respin and a 3-3-5-3-3 pattern for the second respin. This may be repeated as many times as necessary up to a maximum of five times.
Wins are awarded for three or more matching symbols in adjacent reels starting from reel one. It makes no difference where on the reels the symbol appears.
This implies that when the size of the reels rises, the number of chances to win increases as well.
Random features may be activated throughout the spins, with the possibility of getting between zero and three. Free super tokens, random Wilds, and – during free spins – more free spins and multipliers are among the features available.
Wilds, bonuses, and free spins are all included in this game.
The Wild symbol may be used to replace any other symbol.
For every row that a reel expands by, the player receives 1-5 Super Tokens. These will be discussed in more detail shortly.
There are a number of different methods to activate the free spins bonus. The most straightforward way is with the Free Spin Meter. For every two rows that any symbol expands on a spin, the Meter gains one star. This value is reset at the conclusion of each rotation.
When the Meter is completely filled, the Free Spin Screen is activated. The player is presented with three alternatives on this screen.
- There was no data found!
- The first option is to start the spins. This will award the player 8 Free Spins.
- The second option is to buy Super Free Spins. The price is based on your bet size and how many Super Tokens you have. Each super token discounts the buy-in by 1/2, 000th.
- The third option is to gamble. Here the player can gamble their Super Tokens to win Super Free Spins. The chance of winning is based on what percentage of 2, 000 Super Tokens the player has.
During Super Free Spins, a multiplier is applied to all winning combinations, and the multiplier grows by one with each successive winning combination. Some random characteristics might also contribute to the rise of this progressive multiplier.
Bet sizes, return on investment (RTI), and variance
The return to player for this game is 95.53 percent, which is much lower than our yardstick for average, which is about 96 percent.
There was a wide selection of bets available on the site we tested, ranging from a minimum wager per spin of $/£/€0.20 up to a maximum stake per spin of $/£/€40.00. This is a somewhat narrow band that eliminates both low and high stakes players, despite the fact that the majority of bankrolls will be betting in that range.
The volatility of this game is at the upper end of the medium range. When combined with our favored slot machine tactics, it may be a viable option if the return on investment (RTI) were not so poor.
Having a mixed bag of graphics (bad pictures that are beautifully animated) and having a mixed bag of mechanics (low RTP, highish volatility) makes for a very questionable slot.
The variety of entertaining bonuses, as well as the unique twist of expanding reels, make for engaging gaming. However, in the end, this time slot just does not work for us.
Despite its tremendous popularity, it does not get a recommendation.
