iSoftBethave released a brand new online slot today titled Neon Reels, this is a slot which initially impressed us when they released the trailers a few months ago, and now there is a playable version available and we expect to it go live at casinos very soon.
As you would expect from the title Neon Reels features all the classic slot symbols all remade in a Neon Light style, using a 5×3 reel layout and up to 25 paylines, the slot is packed with some great features.
Firstly hats off to iSoftbet for making the reel animations so good, there are plenty of new online slot releases where the reel spinning animation feels clunky and awkward, iSoftbet have managed to capture the animation perfectly, although for the impatient player we would like to see a configurable spin speed setting or a spin/stop function.
The second great design apsect is the way the reels start to pan once you obtain 2 scatters on the reels and the reels light up in bright neon colours, it works and it looks fantastic, even better when the third scatter lands and the free spins are triggered!
Neon Slot Features
Along with these design aspects, there are a number of great features built into the slot, the free spins mode is triggered by landing 3 or more scatters on the reels and grants 10 free spins. During the free spins with wilds also act as multipliers when a winning combination lands on the reels as follows.
1 Wild pays 2x the combination
2 Wilds pays 4x the combination
3 Wilds pays 8x the combination
Landing 2 Diamond Symbols on reel 1 triggers the Diamond re-spins feature, this grants 2 re-spins during which the first reel is held in place, and any additional Diamond Symbols that land on the reels are held, along with any wilds being held in place for the remaining re-spins.
There is also a progressive jackpot on this slot, this is awarded if a player manages to land 5 Jackpot Symbols on a winning line combination and is playing at max bat.
