Reel Rush is a classic-style slot by NetEnt, that gives us strong Super Mario vibes. Just instead of coins you collect candies and colorful fruits. Now, in this case “classic” doesn’t mean “boring” - developers from NetEnt managed to combine this fruity retro looks with several uncommon gameplay features.
With NetEnt as developers, even a classic fruity slot can blow your mind with fun gameplay features
The main game in Reel Rush starts off with a diamond-shaped reel layout - the first and fifth reels have one symbol, the middle one has five, and the third and fourth - three symbols. There are no traditional paylines. Instead, a combination pays when there are 3 or more matching symbols on the adjacent reels (starting from the leftmost one). The wild symbol (star) helps you create combinations more often.
Whenever there’s a win, the game unlocks two more cells on the reels, and launches a re-spin. More cells means more ways to win, and after 5 respins you get 8 free spins with all reels unlocked. That is 3125 ways to create a combination. Freaking nuts!
Reel Rush takes classic fruity slot theme, and infuses it with cool re-spin mechanics, that unlocks more reel space with each win, thus increasing the number of “paylines”. The graphics and symbols look nice (as much as colorful candies and fruits may look “nice”).
