Reel Rush

In this review we’re going to kill two birds with one stone, but in a positive spin of course, with our sound summary of both the original Reel Rush and Reel Rush 2 video slots games.

Powered by top-notch NetEnt software, both games feature a similar interface including overlapping reel symbols like robotic-looking fruits such as watermelons, lemons, and pineapples.

But neither of these games is a traditional fruit slots. Instead they are each feature-rich wonders with eye-catching animation along a 5X5 grid, packed with lots of opportunities for free spins and re-spins, and video slots’ unique 3125 ways to win.

While the precursor is great, if bonus features are your thing, then Reel Rush 2 and its steady stream of random features (more on them to come), may be more your speed. As for payouts, Reel Rush 2 has an RTP of 95.53%-96.58%, and the original is more or less the same.

How to Play

The user interface (UI) for both Reel Rush games is nice and intuitive.

Along the bottom of your screen, moving from left to right you can find buttons for setting your bet, level of play, and coin value. You can also press ‘Auto Play’ or ‘Max Bet’ to simplify matters if you please.

As for wager amounts, you can set the coin value as low as 0.01 and up to 0.2. The minimum bet in Reel Rush is €0.5 while the maximum is €100 (or whatever currency you are betting with). For Reel Rush 2 the minimum you can wager per round is a bit lower at €0.2, while the maximum is just €40.

Bonus Features

The bonus features are what these two games are really all about. And the number of features is so expansive, that we’ll just make honourable mention to give you a sense.

In the original Reel Rush game, things are a little simpler with more standard fare like wild substitutions, as well as free spins and re-spins which allow you to benefit from the 3125 ways to win offering.

Reel Rush 2 is where the features really get going with a long list that includes the Block Breaker (which expands the reel area), Second Chance (for a re-spin if you didn’t win), Symbol Multiplier (which randomly multiplies that symbol’s win), Random Wilds, Symbol Upgrade, Extra Super Tokens, Extra Free Spins, Super Free Spins, Multiplier Boost Free Spins, and the Progressive Multiplier Meter. If that sounds like a lot, you’re right, it is! And that is needless to say a big part of this game’s fun.

Final Verdict

We’re not sure if the “Rush” in these games’ names has to do with the adrenaline jolt or the fast-paced action. Or perhaps both. What is for certain is that the original Reel Rush game already captured our fancy when it was released back in 2013. And the follow-up Reel Rush 2 with its avalanche of eight randomly triggered features only enhanced our adoration.

If, however, you’re looking for us to choose one over the other, you’re out of luck. Each of these games has its own charm, and only you can pick favourites once you’ve tried them both.
