Reel Splitter Slot Adds New Twist For Microgaming ( Click to Enlarge )

On the surface, the new Reel Splitter slot from Microgaming looks every bit like your conventional slot. But there’s a special hidden feature that brings a unique twist to the way it plays. The 4 reels have 81 paylines, but they can be split by a bonus reel that opens up a total of 243 ways players can win with each spin.

Full Of Fruit

The Reel Splitter slot was developed by Just For The Win and is exclusive to Microgaming. The game is adorned with brightly-coloured symbols set against a black backdrop, which enables it to truly stand out on all computers and mobile devices. During gameplay, card icons pay out the smallest wins. Traditional icons like cherries, plums, watermelons and lemons yield far higher prizes.

Trigger More Ways To Win

If the 4 reels all land on matching symbols, a fifth reel will appear in the centre of the screen to boost the number of ways to win. This extra reel stays locked in place whilst the others spin again for free, which can potentially yield winning combinations through 5-of-a-kind.

A special round of free spins is triggered when a bonus symbol appears in 3-4 places at once.

Again, the game switches to the 5-reel format, with 243 ways to win, and it pays from both the left and right sides. The middle reel displays a range of wild symbols throughout this mode.

Reel Splitter arrived at Microgaming’s online casinos mid-May, so if you haven’t checked it out yet, now is the time.

What Just For The Win Say

The CEO of developer Just For The Win spoke of being “thrilled” with its opportunity to bring all the glitz and glamour of the classic Vegas Strip in this “modern take on vintage slots“.

He added that the developer is pleased to not only give players the opportunity to win good money in the base game, but to open up a “whole new level of rewards” through the reel split respin feature.

The team has clearly enjoyed developing Reel Splitter, and the early response to the new title has been largely positive.
