At first glance you might think the Ultimate Super Reels slot is a five reel game, but on closer inspection you’ll realise that it’s actually a three reel game with two added reels that can enhance your win amounts. This slot has many aspects of the traditional fruit machine, especially with the seven and BAR symbols on the reels; however you’ll also find a modern twist as there’s a Jackpot amount, multipliers, added wins and re-spins.
There is certainly no missing the title of the slot – this set against bright sparkling colours, with the words big and bold, setting the tone for the rest of the game. The game instructions sit either side of the title, with the control buttons sitting below the reels. The first three reels actually appear as they might at a classic game, with the traditional white backing and curvature found at game of old, although all of the symbols apart from the BARs are once again full of colour, and the background to the 4th and 5th reels are also in bright colours. Some players will be comfortable with the bold look of the slot, although others will find the overall look a little too ‘in your face’ and may well put sunglasses on when playing to lower the glare!
This slot is almost three different games in one, depending upon the line bet amount. If this amount is between 1 and 9 the slot is a very straightforward 3 reel game with no Jackpot available. However, playing for a line bet of 10 adds the fourth ‘additional win’ reel and a line bet of 15 will add the fifth and final which adds the re-spins, the multipliers and the Jackpot feature. As such we would certainly recommend playing the maximum 15 line bet and should you want to lower the cost of the spin simply play for a lower coin value.
The slot has 5 win lines and standard wins are gained by landing three symbols in a row on one of the lines. The top paying symbol is the ‘Ultimate Super Reels’ which pays 4,000 coins if indeed playing for the maximum bet amount. The slot has six different Seven symbols, and these are the next most profitable, followed by the triple, double and single BAR symbols. You’ll also receive wins for combinations of the seven and BAR symbols.
However, it’s the 4th and 5th reels that really set this game apart, giving it a unique air.
On the 4th reel you’ll find +50, +150, +750 and +1,000 symbols. Should one of these symbols appear on a win line alongside a standard win, this coin amount will be added to your win. The reel does have many blank spaces, so you’ll not always land a symbol, however you’ll always land at least one of these symbols in the three available rows.
The 5th reel is even better. Firstly you’ll find the following multipliers – x2, x5 and x10. Once again, should one of these symbols land on a win line, your win amount will be multiplied by that amount. However, these are not the only symbols on this reel as you’ll also find the re-spin symbol. If this lands on a win line you’ll gain up to 5 re-spins. During these re-spins should you land the re-spin symbol again, you’ll gain even more.
The biggest prize in the game is the progressive Jackpot. This is won when landing the ‘Ultimate Super Reels’ symbols three times in a row on a win line, as well as the +1000 symbol on reel four and the X10 multiplier on reel five. This is only available when playing for the full coin bet amount of 15.
This is certainly an interesting slot by iSoftbet. You can play a basic three reel game if paying the smaller line bet amount, however the game comes into its own when playing for the full amount. Every time you land three in a row, you’ll be waiting for those extra 2 reels to land and hopefully multiply or add to your winning amount. This keeps the excitement level high and this is added to by the fact that you can win the progressive Jackpot amount at any time. Three reels slots can be somewhat predictable at times - this one is anything but.
