What features are in the slot Reef Raider?
The features are Wild Symbol, Multiplier, Avalanche, Treasure Trail meter and Free Spins
The Wild Symbol helps to create more winning combinations by substituting for other symbols, where the only symbols it doesn’t substitute for are the Multiplier symbol. There are two different wilds that can land during the spins, where these are and do the following:
Clam Wild = When you create a winning combination, it will trigger the Avalanche feature which removes these winning symbols. Then a clam wild is placed at one of these positions and if it is included in another new win, it remains.
Wild Coin = By activating either the Random Wilds feature or the Cannon Blast feature, these wild coins can land on the reels.
By landing this multiplier symbol at an adjacent position to a winning combination, the winning cluster will receive a multiplier. Where it can display either 2X, 3X, 5X or 50X.
When you create winning clusters, these symbols will disappear from the reels. Then new symbols fall down to cover the empty positions, and this continues as long as new winding clusters are created.
By creating winnings with clam wild symbols, the Treasure Trail meter is charged. You can then successfully activate Anchor Drop, Random Wilds, Mystery Chest, Cannon Blast and also the Free Spins feature. By landing the following number of clam wild wins, the following is activated and happens:
Anchor Drop (3 clam wilds) = This feature will select 1 to 3 lower paying symbols and then all of these symbol types will disappear from the reels.
Random Wilds (6 clam wilds) = This feature will place 4 to 8 wild coins on the reels.
Mystery Chest (9 clam wilds) = This feature will replace 2 to 16 symbols on the reels with Mystery symbols, then these Mystery symbols will display the same symbol type.
Cannon Blast (12 clam wilds) = This feature will select 1 symbol on the reel and then all symbols on this row and reel will disappear.
Free Spins (15 clam wilds) = You activate the Free Spins feature by getting 15 or more wins with clam wilds.
If you charge the meter with 15 or more symbols, the Free Spins feature is activated. You then get 9 free spins for the first 15 collected symbols and for every third extra you get 2 extra free spins. You can also get more free spins within this feature, whereby loading with 15 symbols you get 1 extra spin and every third extra in addition gives you 1 extra spin.
Then you get to take part in the Mystery Overlay feature, where 5 mystery symbols are placed on the reels. 1 will be placed in the middle and the other 4 will be placed in adjacent horizontal and vertical positions to the middle symbol.
Then you will get the Mystery symbols revealed in order to obtain winning clusters. These 5 placed Mystery symbols will remain with each upcoming spin and if you land a Mystery symbol at an adjacent position to these, it will also follow during the remaining spins made.
This slot allows us to follow down into the sea and meet a very skilled pirate crab. It's a place where he lives the sweet life, and we get to go with him on an adventure where collecting clam wilds can result in nice wins. It is by creating profits with clam wilds that the Treasure Trail meter begins to fill up, where you can successfully activate 5 different features. All create better conditions for generating bigger wins and by collecting 15 or more clam wilds, the Free Spins feature is activated.
By collecting 15 clam wilds you get 9 free spins and for every 3 extra clam wilds, you get 2 extra free spins. This can result in you getting a lot of free spins from the start and you can then also get extra spins during the feature. Then once you start using these spins, the real adventure begins. You then get to take part in the Mystery Overlay feature and then 5 plus-shaped Mystery symbols will be placed in the middle of the reels. These will then remain during the remaining spins where they will be revealed each time. Something that certainly creates an extra excitement and above all big wins, is if it lands Mystery symbols that are adjacent to these 5, because then even these symbols will remain during the remaining spins.
It is a very entertaining slot to play, where the color happy theme and a lot of different features create a wonderful harmony. It is a slot where the winning clusters very quickly can trigger and result in big wins, as it can provide many subsequent features. It will be a grinding game similar to the ones we have previously seen in, among other things, Gems Bonanza. Where in our test it took 310 spins before the Free Spins feature was activated. These multiplier symbols that randomly land on the reels can suddenly give big wins and with a potential maximum win of 8500X, it will really be a good time to spend with this crab.
Reef Raider is a slot from NetEnt where we get to face the terror of the rock pool and search for valuable treasures.
