Microgaming is the casino software company that came up with Reel Splitter slots. At first glance, the 4-reel slot game doesn't seem that special. It's a fruit slot with vivid symbols and colors. It's the game's name that cues players into the special feature. The reels will split apart and add a fifth reel that's comprised of nothing but wild symbols.
This bonus slot has 4 reels and 81 ways to win. The bonus features that add a fifth reel increase it to 243 ways to win. While the payouts may not seem extreme, the addition of the two bonus features adds to the rewards in this fruit slot.
With any of the classic slot symbols, you need three matching symbols in order to win. The payouts are as follows:
For a winning combination to form, the symbols must be on adjacent reels. If you have a plum on the first, third, and fourth reel, that wouldn't lead to a payout. They must be on the first, second, and third or fourth, third, and second if you're in the free spins bonus round.
When you have had four symbols create a winning combination, the game may trigger the Re-Spin Reel Splitter bonus. In this bonus round, you get one free spin with the fifth reel added in between the second and third reels. That extra reel shifts the game from having 81 paylines to 243 paylines.
Get three or four free spins symbols on the reels and win free spins. Three symbols trigger a bonus of 8 free spins. Get four of the free spins symbols and win 16 free spins. During the free spins, the reels split apart and add a fifth reel that serves as a stacked wild.
The other perk to the free spins bonus is that winning combinations form both ways and there are 243 possible paylines. It's so easy to win with these extra features.
Place your bet on this 4-reel Microgaming slot. Wagers start at 10 cents and go up to $100. With such a great range of bets/coin values, you'll find it easy to wager at a level that fits your comfort zone. Once you've selected your wager, spin the reels and see if you can make the reels split apart in Reel Splitter slots.
