Reel Poker Slots
As you might expect, this is a slot about Poker that manages to do a good job in slot form. Reel Poker Slots manages to combine a variety of genres into a simple, compelling, and fun whole that manages to be fun at every time. For those that love playing cards, cartoony characters, and winning lots of money in a slot machine, combining card power and slot machine basics has never been so lucrative.
Reel Poker Slots is about, to put it simply: Poker. Surprised? We did not think so.
Everything in Reel Poker Slots takes its visual cues from that of a card came. The surrounding graphics also resemble a high stakes poker setup, making it feel like a little more than a standard slot machine setup. All of the suits everyone is used to are present, and everything is very easy to read.
Where the game shines and differs from what you would expect, however, are the cartoon rendering of the characters, and the colorful emotions placed on each and every one of their faces. Reel Poker Slots goes above and beyond what is necessary here, conveying a strong sense of humor and carrying for the individual cards that come up, endearing you to the different suits, and making it all feel fresher than yet another slot machine game.
The graphics on the outside readings, including the numbers and mechanics, are also very fittingly done, blending right in with the action and never feeling out of place.
They did a lot here to make things lucrative and interesting for old and new players alike. Packing a whopping 100 play lines, there is a lot to match in Reel Poker Slots. In doing so, you can wager between 1 and 5 coins per spin, up to $2.50. This makes Reel Poker Slots suitable for players that want a more accessible game that will not break their wallets.
It still manages to appeal to veteran players, however, due to the progressive jack pot feature. This can be won with a 5 coin bet, and as one might expect, is not done by matching just any old symbol or a set of wild cards. The jackpot is one by getting a royal flush, much like the top poker matches on the planet.
There are three main kinds of jackpots that can be won, all of them being eligible to win at the same time. These are the progressive, the major random, and the minor random jackpots. This helps add suspense to the game, giving you more chances to win.
Other hands result in a win too, changing the multiplier for the winnings in a progressive manner that at a certain point seems too good to be true. These range from a straight to a flush to 5 of a king and a royal flush, with the multipliers starting at 13 and rising all the way to 10,000!
+ The progressive jackpot feature is very enticing + The betting amounts are very accessible + Fitting premise + Strong designs on the reels + Each suit has a fitting emotion and makes you feel for them + The play style is card themed, making it more interesting than simply matching any old thing
- Matching things requires more skill to understand than a standard slot game, though it is still told to you automatically - It would be nice if it allowed players to bet higher amounts
- Standard gameplay - A little too low on the betting amounts
