If you’re a good slots game lover, like we are, then you have probably noticed the fact that every slot game developer out there, without exception, has produced at least one underwater-themed slot (usually more, since they have a tendency to recycle this theme from time to time). And the two most important aspects to such a slot are either the gorgeous graphics, or something unique which makes it stick out from all the other slots. The best thing would be to have both of these!
Now, since we rather like Yggdrasil Gaming, we’d hate to have to criticize it in such a manner, but its “Reef Run” slot doesn’t seem to have either of the things we mentioned above. Though it is somewhat trying with the second one, and we’re not sure it’s succeeding.
Not to sound too harsh, but we’ve definitely seen better underwater-based online slots than this 5-reel, 20-pay-line slot. Still, it’s not like it’s completely worthless, and after all, beauty and worth are both in the eye of the beholder, and the same rule applies to slot games. Like any other Yggdrasil slot, it offers an Autoplay option, as well as the fact that you can play it via any of your preferred mobile devices. Which means you can take a dive and yet stay completely dry!
Not All Bad
When you try it online, the 3D graphics and animations definitely look better than when you’d play it on your mobile. Same goes for Androids, they simply look unimpressive, and even fizzy! The sounds this slot offers also leave the player wanting more, or at least we did. One good thing are the Fish Symbols, which are unique-enough to have their own character!
And there are also some other things which make this slot worth your time, such as the pretty impressive wins during the Free Spins. You see, each time you, as the player, make a win using one of the Symbols, you end up with a Multiplier on that Symbol. Such Multipliers can be 5x, 10x, or even 20x!
Now, the main issue with this, is that more often than not, you are bound to trigger just 10 Free Spins. While that sounds good by itself, in this case it simply isn’t sufficient to gain enough wins on 1 Big Symbol, and make the most of the 20x Multiplier.
But When it Comes to 60 Free Spins…
There are also Scatters to look forward to. By getting 3 or more Free Spin Symbols (represented by the Clam Shells), no matter where on your reels, it triggers a Bonus Feature. 3 such Symbols reward you with 10 Free Spins, 4 Symbols amount to 20 Free Spins, and 5 Symbols grant you the much sought-after 60 Free Spins!
Another plus is that the player only needs 2 Clam Shells during these Free Spins in order to trigger 2 extra Free Spins. While such a feat is harder with just 10 Free Spins, the higher that Multiplier goes with your Symbols, the more wins you can hope for. 60 Free Spins, and you may never need to go fishing again!
Needless to say, if you are lucky enough to trigger this many, you will absolutely love this game, rather than think it’s mediocre. We should warn you that they can be difficult to reach, however, and that the overall speed of this gameplay is far from ideal.
Having said all this, that 20x Multiplier is certainly nothing to brush off, and one would actually be holding their breath (although not really underwater), due to anticipation. And sometimes, one might drown. It’s up to you to decide if you want to take that risk or not.
You should also know that the coin values here range from 0,01 – 2, while the minimum bet per spin is 0,20, and the maximum one per spin – 40 coins. The maximum win can also be rather tempting, as it amounts to 20,000 coins on a single line bet!
For those players among you seeking more adventurous themes with more adrenalin-pumping action, you may want to look elsewhere. But for those who have their eyes on the prize, and never turn down an aquatic theme, then you may want to give it a try on one of our top-rated online casinos. May your fishy fortunes never cease!
