Fishing is one of the most relaxing and at the same time exciting activities one can do. The makers of the game at Microgaming incorporated exactly those two things into Reel Strike. Test the game here for free at AskGamblers.com, before you decide to invest your money and go for the jackpot.
Theme is mostly brown in the play mode, where the frame of the reels represent fishing rods; and mostly navy blue when in payline viewing. The music blends in the whole atmosphere of this slot, nothing out of the ordinary — the sounds of the waves plus the sound of the reels spinning. In case you prefer your own music, or total peace and quiet, there is a mute button in the top right corner.
This is a 5 reel, 15 payline slot, and all wins pay from left to right. There are plenty of fish in the sea, literally speaking: Yellow Fin Tuna, Red Snapper, Flying Fish, Barracuda as well as other fishing symbols.
5 Bonus symbols on any active payline trigger the bonus feature. When the bonus round activates you will see 6 boats on the screen and you need to pick two. One has the number or free spins and the other holds the multiplier value. Wins that are shown in the bonus game are already multiplied by the line bet, and bonus wins get added to payline wins. There is a Wild symbol which substitutes for all but Scatter symbol. Scatter wins are multiplied by the number of credits.
