Lucky 5 Reeler
Lucky 5 Reeler
While you’d mostly associated Barcrest with providing solid, retro-style slot machines with enhanced payouts, it’s not often you see the company break the mould and try something completely new.
That, however, is exactly what they’ve done with Lucky 5 Reeler, an innovative five-reel, 10-payline title that offers players five spins for the price of one every single game. With all winning combos sticking in place for the remaining number of spins, this naturally has the potential to create some huge prizes, especially if you play with all 10 paylines enabled to trigger the slot’s increased payouts.
Lucky 5 Reeler features a traditional good fortune theme, with cats, clovers, lady luck and the game’s logo featuring as higher value icons alongside the standard ace-through-ten playing card symbols. The game includes a special display where each spin is stored at the top of the screen and has its winnings displayed underneath, with all prizes being totalled up at the end of the round. Every spin also triggers a piece of music that includes the gentle crash of cymbals and a funky double bass.
For the most part, Lucky 5 Reeler plays like one continuous bonus feature thanks to its innovative five-spin system. With any winning combination of three or more symbols on adjacent reels sticking in place for the remainder of your spins, players not only receive the same prize amount in multiple games, they also have the potential to add to it each turn. This means if you’re fortunate enough to land a five-of-a-kind combination on your first spin, you’ll receive at least 5x that payout by the time the game is over and may even be able to land additional sticky wins for even more bonus cash.
Although its gameplay is relatively unusual, the control system in Lucky 5 Reeler is altogether more familiar. Players can use the up and down arrows to choose their stake per line from between £0.20 and £50.00 (with anything above £1.00 being considered “high roller” level), while the slot can either be played with five or 10 paylines active. When combined, these two options naturally make the game playable from £1.00 to £500.00 per spin, meaning it is a title better suited to bigger bankrolls.
If you thought you’d seen every trick that Barcrest had in their locker, think again; because Lucky 5 Reeler is quite unlike any other game by the company. The five-spin system utilised in the game is a really interesting alternative to conventional slot play and the fact that your wins stick to the reels gives you a real opportunity to build up multiple payline combos and massive prize payouts.
