Appearance and Sound Effects
Reel Steel is a Net Entertainment slot, and like most NetEnt slots is design is slick, and its gameplay is good. This slot is a heist-themed slot, so the setting for the reels is the murky criminal underworld.
The first symbols on the reels are your gangster boss and his associates Sam and Nate. A mobster story wouldn't be complete without the good-looking lady, and she appears as the second highest paying symbol on the reels.
The remaining symbols are also theme related and include a gun, a bag of money, jewels and the safe. The gunman is the top paying symbol, and he can win you up to 1500x your stake. The soundtrack for the slot is decent enough and fits well with the theme, but don't worry if it annoys you it can be turned off as you spin.
There is not a lot of bonus features or symbols in this slot game. The first special symbol is the wild symbol, which is the orange getaway car symbol. If you see this symbol landing on the reels during a spin, it might help you win payouts. It does this by substituting for all other symbols on the reels to complete winning combinations.
The wild has a 5x multiplier.The next special symbol is the scatter symbol, which is the stick of dynamite symbol. If you land three, four or five of them on the single spin you will trigger the free spins bonus feature.
If you land three dynamite symbols when triggering the free spins, you will be awarded 15 free spins; for four scatter symbols it would be 20 free spins, and for five you will receive 25 free spins. If you win during the free spins, a 5x multiplier is applied and wins involving the wild symbol can be multiplied by up to 25x.
Reel Steel is a nice slot game by Net Entertainment. The game's theme is good and makes a pleasant change from Egyptian or Oriental style themes. There is not a lot in the way of bonus features available on this game, however, if you land the free spins bonus you can really land big jackpots.
